April 26 (Reuters) - The following corporate finance-related stories were reported by media on Friday:

* The number of potential bidders for Onex Corp's Carestream Health Inc has fallen to two firms, Bain Capital LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners LP, several people familiar with the matter said, damping hopes of selling the medical imaging company for as much as $3.5 billion.

* Some Japanese banks are preparing to offer additional financing to SoftBank Corp in case the telecommunications company wants to raise its offer for Sprint Nextel Corp to fend off a rival bid by Dish Network Corp , the Wall Street Journal reported. ()

* Russia's second-biggest bank, VTB, will on Friday set the terms for a planned 100 billion roubles ($3.21 billion) share sale which is expected to take place in the middle of May, business newspaper Vedomosti reported.
