Oct 6 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Thursday:

** Twitter Inc shares plunged on Thursday as fears mounted that a much-anticipated auction of the social media company will draw minimal interest from potential buyers.

** Pfizer Inc said on Thursday it would sell its global infusion therapy business to ICU Medical Inc for $1 billion in cash and stock that will give it a major stake in the smaller company.

** France's Amundi has made a higher than expected 4 billion euro ($4.5 bln) offer to buy UniCredit's Pioneer Investments, two sources told Reuters, raising the bar in the race to snap up Italy's third-largest asset manager.
