July 29 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Friday:

** The board of brewer SABMiller will recommend its shareholders approve a sweetened takeover offer by Anheuser-Busch InBev, the company said on Friday, capping a week of high drama about the fate of the consumer industry's biggest-ever merger.

** Buyout firms are focused on acquiring some software assets that Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co (HPE) has been considering divesting, worth between $6 billion and $8 billion, rather than the entire company, people familiar with the matter said on Friday.

** Power producer NextEra Energy Inc said it agreed to buy Energy Future Holdings Corp as well as the bankrupt Texas power company's stake in Oncor Electric Delivery Co in a deal with an enterprise value of about $18.4 billion.

** Norwegian energy firm DNO ASA, hoping to expand its presence in Iraqi Kurdistan, offered to buy rival Gulf Keystone Petroleum Ltd for $300 million, following the latter's junk bond deal this month.
