Sept 26 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2010 GMT on Friday:

** Activist investor Starboard Value LP said it has acquired a "significant" stake in Yahoo Inc and urged the Internet company to explore a merger with AOL Inc.

** Morgan Stanley and Standard Chartered are among six banks picked to manage the sales of shares in two state-run Indian companies, sources directly involved in the deals said.

** Deutsche Telekom is preparing for the possibility of keeping its investment in T-Mobile US for at least another year as it fears the sole current suitor for the U.S. firm will fail to come through with a sufficiently attractive offer, three people familiar with the matter said.
