May 5 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Thursday:

** Sanofi said it was prepared to raise its proposed $9.3 billion deal to buy Medivation if the U.S. cancer drug maker engaged in talks, threatening to take a hostile bid directly to shareholders if not.

** Sibanye Gold aims to show its faith in platinum with further acquisitions while looking to benefit from a broader commodities revival by strengthening its portfolio of gold, base metals and coal assets.

** Energy Transfer Equity LP Chief Executive Kelcy Warren said the pipeline company cannot complete an agreed-upon $21 billion takeover of rival Williams Cos Inc because of tax issues.
