Other proposals would mean Dell Inc. would remain a public company

We've been following the saga of Michael Dell and a consortium of other companies who have been attempting to purchase Dell Inc. and take the company private. Michael Dell, Microsoft, and the Silver Lake Group made an offer to Dell's board to purchase the company at $13.65 per share. This deal would see Michael Dell putting up his 14% ownership as part of the deal and remaining on as CEO.

While early reports indicated that the buyout offer from Michael Dell and the other companies was going to complete rather quickly, that turned out to be untrue. Things are now looking even worse for Michael Dell and a consortium of companies backing him with alternative proposals being offered up by Blackstone Group LP and billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

According to recent reports, the special board committee set up by Dell Inc. continues to support the pending sale to Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners. However, the committee is said to be evaluating the new takeover proposal to decide if either of the new offers is better than what Michael Dell and his cohorts are offering.

Icahn has proposed $15 per share for a 58% stake in Dell. Blackstone has offered over $14.25 per share according to a source who claims to be familiar with the discussions.

One key difference with the new offers is that we would still see a portion of Dell stock remain public. The deal offered by Michael Dell and Silver Lake is for all outstanding shares and would take the company private.
