Nov 7 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2100 GMT on Friday:
** Japanese regional lenders Kagoshima Bank Ltd and Higo Bank Ltd said on Friday they were in merger talks, marking the second such move within a week in a fragmented industry that has been slow to consolidate. If completed, a merger between the two banks would create a lender with combined assets of 8.4 trillion yen ($72.9 billion).
** Poland's Energa SA is planning to invest 18.2 billion zlotys ($5.34 billion) until 2022, after the country's fourth largest utility posted a third-quarter net profit in line with market expectations, the group said on Friday.
** Songbird Estates, the majority owner of London's Canary Wharf, has rejected a 2.2 billion pound ($3.5 billion) takeover proposal from Qatar Investment Authority and Brookfield Property Partners, saying it "materially undervalued" the group.
