Britain's Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance Group launched an agreed-upon cash takeover bid worth about $1.36 billion for U.S. specialty insurer Orion Capital Corp. The takeover would double Royal & Sun's U.S. presence and move it further away from lower-margin insurance lines to higher-margin specialty insurance lines such as the nonstandard auto and workers' compensation policies that Farmington, Conn.-based Orion sells.

Top management of Los Angeles-based Postal Instant Press, the nation's largest franchiser of quick printing stores, offered on Friday to buy the company for $66 million. The $17-a-share offer comes after two other companies have separately accumulated a 35% stake in the company and have signaled their interest in buying more. One of the companies, Kane-Miller Corp. of Tarrytown, N.Y., launched an unsuccessful, $18.50-per-share takeover bid last July.

He was 75. The Swiss-born accountant served as controller for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences from 1978 to 2002.
