* Shares of Chatsworth-based Capstone Turbine Corp. rose 56 cents to close at $28.31 on Nasdaq after stakeholder Fletcher Challenge Ltd. agreed to be acquired by oil companies Royal Dutch Shell Group and Houston-based Apache Corp. for $1.67 billion. Fletcher, New Zealand's largest oil and gas company, owns nearly 10% of Capstone, which makes micro-turbines. As part of the buyout offer, Fletcher shareholders would be issued one Capstone share for every 70 shares of Fletcher, though they would have to wait at least six months to receive them.
