TOKYO -- Japan Display said Tuesday that the Fubon Group, a Taiwanese financial concern, has pulled out of talks to rescue the hobbled flat panel maker, becoming the second Taiwanese company to withdraw from talks.

TPK Holding, a Taiwanese electronic component maker, was the first to depart a would-be Taiwan-China consortium that had been almost ready to deliver up to 80 billion yen ($747 million) in financial aid to the Japanese company.
