Nov 13 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2100 GMT on Thursday:

** Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc said it would buy Procter & Gamble Co's Duracell battery business in exchange for its entire $4.7 billion stake in the world's No. 1 household products maker.

** The risk the Ukraine crisis poses for European companies was highlighted when German utility RWE AG said on Thursday that a 5.1 billion euro ($6.35 billion) sale of its oil and gas arm DEA to Russian billionaire Mikhail Fridman may be delayed.

** Brazil's Itau Unibanco Holding SA will walk away from its deal to merge with Chile's CorpBanca if it is forced to carry out a tender offer, but does not see that as a likely outcome, a senior Itau executive told a local paper. The $3.7 billion deal, Latin America's largest banking merger since 2008, was agreed in January, but U.S. activist investor Cartica has tried to block it.
