Battles and Bids Over Pay by Touch

Talk that troubled VeriFone may acquire the doubly troubled Pay By Touch, a leader in point-of-sale fingerprint payments, has turned to murmurs

VeriFone (PAY) has quietly expressed interest in buying the assets of Pay By Touch, a biometrics company currently in Chapter 11, according to court filings obtained by BusinessWeek.com.

It's not clear what stage, if any, talks between the two companies have reached. Both VeriFone and Pay By Touch declined to comment.
