A DEAL FOR UNISYS MAY BE IN THE WORKS
Takeover speculation is roiling Unisys again. People close to London's Charterhouse Bank say the bank is trying to round up a group of prominent industrialists, academics, and a major industrial company to make an offer.
The sources say those involved in the talks include British Airways Chairman Lord King, former IBM Europe executive Edgar Neufeld, and Oxford University scholar Sir Claus Moser. Unisys Chairman James Unruh declined comment, and none of those named as investors would confirm their involvement in the talks.EDITED BY HARRIS COLLINGWOOD
