' : v , -a -1 h ' r 's ' - , -'1 I ' K - v Total Fina wins Elf takeover; to be 4th-largest oil company By Susannah Patton Vie Associated Press PARIS French oil company Total Fina came out the big winner Monday in its 2-month-long takeover battle for rival Elf Aquitaine, creating the world's fourth-largest oil company with a sweetened $54.2 billion offer. Total Fina and Elf both have been under pressure to increase in size amid rapid industrywide consolidation. The combined group, however, will still be much smaller than oil behemoths Royal Dutch Shell AG, BP Amoco PLC and the planned combination of Exxon Corp. and Mobil Corp. With the successful offer, Total Fina Chairman Thierry Desmarest managed to avoid a drawn-out fight like the one that recently stymied Banque Nationale de Paris' plans for a three-way banking consolidation. Desmarest will run the new company. Elf Chairman Philippe Jaffre, who had launched a counterbid to Total's original July offer, will resign. "Everyone has got something to be pleased about in this except Jaffre," said Henri-Daniel Sa-mama, analyst at the Paris brokerage house Exane. The two oil groups had been at a standoff since Total Fina initially launched an unsolicited $44 billion all-stock takeover bid for Elf in July. Elf resisted the hostile offer, coming back with its own $53 billion cash-and-stock counterbid to buy Total Fina. Elf said on Monday, however, that its offer for Total Fina is "no longer necessary" and that both companies would drop legal cases contesting the original bids. Total Fina is itself a product of the industrywide consolidation, the result of Total's buyout of Belgium's PetrofLna. Total Fina and Elf said they would remain "on an equal footing" after the deal, but analysts said Total is gaining effective control. "It's a clear victory for Total, which will dominate the new group," said Hughes de la Presle, an analyst at Standard and Poor's in Paris. .

Despite its popularity as the No. 1 handheld computer, the Palm never really drew investors to 3Com in part because it didn't complement the company's other products. 3Com said Monday it wants to launch an initial public offering early next year, selling 20 percent of Palm to investors. The deal could value the new company anywhere from $5 billion to $10 billion, analysts estimated. About 4 million Palms have been sold since their introduction in 1995, becoming a sort of mobile badge for on-the-go professionals. By David Kalish Vie Associated Press NEW YORK Wall Street investors are among the most loyal users of 3Com's popular Palm electronic organizer. But now they get to vote about how the gadget really stacks up against the competition. Four years after creating the handheld-computer market, 3Com Corp. plans to spin off its Palm computing unit into a separate public company, hoping to unleash a flood of investment capital to finance the fight against a slew of newcomers. 3Com hopes separating the two companies will help it focus on its main business of selling computer modems LOCATION MAP SEC it. !. 45 S. .
