Nikon Not In Perkin-Elmer Talks: Nikon Corp....

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Nikon Not In Perkin-Elmer Talks: Nikon Corp. said it is not in talks and has no plans to acquire Perkin-Elmer Corp.'s semiconductor manufacturing equipment division, although it was in such talks earlier this year. The Japanese camera maker said it broke off talks in part because of concern about American reaction to another Japanese company buying a key U.S. technology firm. However, Perkin-Elmer is having difficulty finding a U.S. bidder for the unit, one of the few U.S. firms that produces equipment for manufacturing computer chips.
