Being the 3rd largest computer manufacturer in the world, Dell is well-known among technicians and computer enthusiasts all round. Recently they have announced their plans to buy themselves out from equity partners. Having been a public company for more than two decades this move will help them act faster on decisions and have more freedom as a private company, where they need not run choices through equity partners and shareholders.
In 2011 Dell was dethroned from their second place position by Lenovo as the most powerful computer manufacturer in the world, adding to the general economic drain on computer manufacturer’s revenue. Tablets have also been eating away at the market share of computers recently, leaving a slight troublesome situation to consider.
Regardless, this move from Dell will hopefully help them secure their position in the PC market, releasing them from trying to keep shareholders happy. Although this is presumably their plan, speculation alone has caused their stock to increase in value, which could create problems when they finally buy out.
