Dell Committee Reminds Icahn Need For Additional Information - Quick Facts

The Special Committee of the Board of Dell Inc. (DELL) sent a letter to Carl Icahn and Southeastern Asset Management underscoring its need for additional information regarding the proposed leveraged recapitalization transaction submitted on May 9.

"As you know, on May 13, 2013 we sent you a letter requesting clarifications and additional materials relating to your proposal. Unless the Board determines that your proposal could reasonably be expected to result in a "Superior Proposal", we are not permitted to provide you with information or engage in discussions concerning your proposal," Dell Special Committee stated in the letter.
