  • ISS Backs Dell's Leveraged Buyout Offer (DELL)

    In a surprise move, Institutional Shareholders Services Inc. said on Monday that Dell Inc. (DELL) investors should accept Michael Dell's $24.4 billion leveraged buyout offer. Institutional Shareholder Services, otherwise known as ISS, is the world's biggest shareholder-advisory firm. In a statement, ISS cited a 25.5% premium to Dell's unaffected share price, the certainty of value provided by an all-cash deal, and the transfer of risk given Dell's crumbling PC business as reasons that they support the buyout offer. Currently, Michael Dell and Silver Lake Management are seeking a $13.65 per share buyout deal. Analysts believe that ISS's recommendation could finally sway the outcome of Dell Inc. shareholders accepting Michael Dell's offer. Institutional investors look to ISS's findings and opinion for guidance on how to vote their shares in such matters. Furthermore, ISS's endorsement lessens the pressure for Dell and Silver Lake Management to improve their offer. This is especially beneficial since Carl Icahn has continued his effort to pressure to get a better offer from Dell and Silver Lake Management. “The issue facing Dell shareholders at this meeting has been framed in some media commentary as a choice between the sale to Michael Dell and Silver Lake Partners, or the leveraged recapitalization proposed by Icahn and SAM. It is not,” ISS said in its report. “The alternative to accepting the buyout offer is to continue holding equity in a publicly-traded Dell, with continued exposure to the risks and rewards of ownership.” Dell shareholders are scheduled to vote on July 18 on the leveraged buyout proposal. Dell shares were up 34 cents, or 2.61%, during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is down 28.5% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Dell (DELL) have a dividend yield of 2.46% based on Friday's closing price of $13.03 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 32 cents per share. Dell Inc. (DELL) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
