Dell Private Equity Buyout: March 22 Go Shop Deadline

view story

http://www.thevarguy.com – When Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) announced plans to go private, the proposed $24.4 billion private equity buyout included a March 22 “Go Shop” deadline. As part of that deadline, a Dell Special Committee has actively solicited alternative bids, and potentially entered negotiations with alternative buyers. But have any other bidders line up to buy Dell? And will any offers beat the $24.4 billion plan currently on the table? Oh, and how should channel partners react in the meantime? Hmmm… As you likely know, a growing list of shareholders object to the proposed private equity deal. (IT news)
