Aug 30 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 1000 GMT on Tuesday:

** The Philippines' Court of Appeals said it has halted the competition regulator's review of a $1.5 billion deal that could strengthen the duopoly of the country's two biggest telecom firms, PLDT Inc and Globe Telecom Inc to buy San Miguel Corp out of the sector.

** China Evergrande Group said it used proceeds from home sales to buy shares in larger rival China Vanke , which is at the center of a rare public Chinese boardroom spat.
