March 19 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Tuesday:

* Walgreen Co and partner Alliance Boots said they signed a 10-year deal with AmerisourceBergen that will include daily drug distribution, enabling Walgreen to increase its sales of pricey specialty drugs.

* Liberty Media Corp said it will buy a 27.3 percent stake in cable television operator Charter Communications Inc for about $2.62 billion.

Liberty Media, a media holding company controlled by cable veteran John Malone, will pay $95.50 for each Charter share, a discount of 2.6 percent to Charter's Monday close of $98.04.
