This is a two-part case which examines the events that led to CEO Michael Dell’s decision to bring his company private in 2013. Case A is a global business strategy case about transforming and turning around a $60 billion technology company, and the challenge of valuing that business as its legacy declined and its ambitious diversification program progressed; and case B is a deal case about a very public going private process and the financial and transactional issues that gripped the market for close to a year, prompting both public and private market participants to debate the value and future of Dell.
