Dell will acquire Perot Systems in a transaction valued at approximately US$3.9bn.
Dell and Perot Systems share several key characteristics – their products, services and structures are complementary. They also have similarly strong, relationship-based business cultures. The combination also provides some opportunities for improved efficiency, which will benefit customers even further.
Michael Dell, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, Dell, said: ” We consider Perot Systems to be a premium asset with great people that enhances our opportunities for immediate and long-term growth. This significantly expands Dell’s enterprise-solutions capabilities and makes Perot Systems’ strengths available to even more customers around the world. There will be efficiencies from combining the companies, but the acquisition makes such great sense because of the obvious ways our businesses complement each other.”
Dell’s global commercial customer base spans large corporations, government agencies, health-care providers, educational institutions, and small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
