Dec 5 (Reuters) - The following corporate finance-related
stories were reported by media on Wednesday: 
    
    * British supermarket operator Tesco will launch a
strategic review of its money-losing Fresh & Easy chain in the
United States, Sky News reported. 
    
   * Germany's privately owned Intersnack is finalising an
agreement to buy United Biscuits' savoury snacks arm,
KP Snacks, for more than 400 million pounds ($644.million),
Bloomberg reported citing three people familiar with the
discussions. United Biscuits' owners Blackstone and PAI

Ocwen Financial Corp's recent agreements to buy two
mortgage servicing firms as a result of concerns about what it
says are unfair loan practices, the Wall Street Journal

Residential Holdings Inc and the mortgage servicing unit of
Residential Capital LLC.
