News Headline Summary
Interesting analysis for Dell (DELL): A bid to take Dell Inc private by buyout firm Silver Lake and its partners underscores the financing market's willingness to lend up to USD 5bln to the world's No.3 PC maker, money that could be used...
...to buy back shares and pay dividends even if the deal doesn't come together.
The Silver Lake-led bidding group has lined up debt financing from at least four major banks and is negotiating a final price to pay Dell shareholders, people familiar with the matter have said.
Should the buyout talks collapse, Dell could still choose to borrow itself and embark on a large share repurchase, in what investors and analysts refer to as a "Plan B".
