(B) Probably one of the best comments that I have read about Dell going private is the Bloomberg interview of Edward Conard, a former private equity investor from Bain Capital.
Long story – short…
Dell going private is an “old school LBO deal at a very low valuation, paying down the existing debt, shielding the earnings from taxes, converting ordinary income into capital gains”…but besides the LBO mechanics, the key takeaway is…surprisingly…”There is nothing that Dell could do as a private company that they could not do as a public company.”
