4 Merger and Acquisitions Stories for Investors to Peruse

Dell (NASDAQ:DELL): Current price $12.82

The speculation that Dell is considering a voluntary sale of itself that would take it private, is igniting all sorts of number-crunching. Such an acquisition would indeed be huge and unlike anything that has been seen in at least five years. The standard takeover of 20 percent would raise the overall equity price to around $ 22.8 billion from the pre-rumor stock price, which would require equity of about $6.8 billion from the largest private-equity firms plus another $13.5 billion in debt financing from the world’s biggest banks.
