The withdrawalof the offer puts Starwood on track to return to Marriott International Inc., which previously reached anagreement to take out the company for approximately $13.6 billion.

The offerfrom an Anbang-led consortium, which also included J.C. Flowers & Co. LLC and Primavera Capital Ltd., amountedto $82.75 per share. In disclosing the offer March 28, Starwood said the bid was"reasonably likely" to be deemed superior to Marriott's $79.53 takeoutproposal.
