April 21 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Tuesday:

** Chinese state-owned conglomerate China Resources Enterprise (CRE) will focus on its beer business after agreeing to sell the remaining operations to its parent for about $3.6 billion.

** Generic drug maker Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd made an unsolicited $40 billion offer for smaller rival Mylan NV, a bold bid for growth as its lucrative Copaxone drug faces generic competition.

** Hedge fund manager David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital has taken a new stake in General Motors Co, nearly a year after selling off its position in the automaker, the firm told clients in a letter seen by Reuters.
