Blackstone Withdraws Proposal For Dell - Quick Facts

The Special Committee of the Board of Dell Inc. (DELL: Quote) announced Friday that it has been informed by Blackstone Management Partners L.L.C. that the group led by Blackstone has decided not to submit a definitive proposal to acquire the company and is withdrawing from the process.

"While we still believe that Dell is a leading global company with strong market positions, a number of significant adverse issues have surfaced since we submitted our letter proposal to you on March 22nd, including: an unprecedented 14 percent market decline in PC volume in the first quarter of 2013, its steepest drop in history, and inconsistent with Management's projections for modest industry growth; and the rapidly eroding financial profile of Dell. Since our bid submission, we learned that the company revised its operating income projections for the current year to $3.0 billion from $3.7 billion", Blackstone said in a letter.
