March 27 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Friday:

** Dow Chemical Co will separate a portion of its century-old chlorine business and sell it to Olin Corp in a tax-efficient deal worth $5 billion as part of efforts to shed low-margin assets.

** U.S. energy firm Chevron is seeking to sell its entire stake in Caltex Australia Ltd for about A$4.6 billion ($3.58 billion), exiting Australia's biggest refiner after nearly 40 years as falling oil prices and high costs hurt margins.

** A lender to bankrupt RadioShack Corp told a U.S. judge on Friday it was prepared to present a new offer that was a "significant improvement" over a rival proposal that was selected as a winning bidder at an auction this week.
