Maxus Energy Reveals Talks: The Dallas-based oil and natural gas producer said it is discussing possible transactions involving an equity stake amid speculation that it would be taken over. It said the talks are in a preliminary stage and that it was making the disclosure in response to recent news stories and analyst conjecture. Amoco Corp. was named as a possible suitor Tuesday by Platt’s Oilgram News, a respected industry newsletter. A spokesman declined to say who the talks were with. The statement said talks were with “various parties” and involved an equity stake in either the company or its subsidiaries.
