re: Dell going private in $24 billion deal

It's always seemed to me that there are so many advantages to being a private company. Fewer regulatory requirements and you don't need to make quarterly results your sole focus. You can think long term.

How does Dell find extra cash to keep up R&D efforts to satisfy market requirements to keep up its profits (savings for the future!) ?

It is interesting to watch these companies come and go. I'm not sure if Dell can ever get back to where they were. If I were Michael Dell, I don't think I would do that. But then, I guess that's why I'm not a billionaire.

Why go public? The very rich and the hedge funds control so much cash now, why bother with the rubes, and all the public and legal scrutiny it brings. The only reason anyone goes public any more is so that the insiders can cash out. By the time us schmucks can buy, the money has already been made.

what is advantage of going private? Is it that they dont have to please the wallstreet idiots every quarter and focus more on their products?

PS: Nice of Microsoft to make a loan to facilitate the move given it helped suck profits out of the company and its cohorts for years.

A similar move seemed to work for Seagate. Despite Dell's acquisitions in networking, it seems it is still behind the curve in the post PC era. This move will give the once-retired Dell the breathing room to reshape his company into something that might survive the shifts.

Does this deal make sense? Has the pendulum swung to where these kinds of buyouts are attractive once again? I think this is a good deal for Dell shareholders.
