The Cayman Islands and Irish offices of international law firm Maples and Calder ("Maples") are delighted to have advised Silver Lake Partners on the Cayman Islands and Irish law aspects of the recently announced $24.4 billion acquisition of Dell, Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL).  

This transaction represents the largest private equity buyout since 2007.  Under the terms of the agreement, Dell stockholders will receive $13.65 in cash for each share of Dell common stock that they hold. 

As part of the transaction, Michael Dell and certain related parties, who collectively hold approximately 16% of the Company's shares, will roll over their shares into the acquiring entity. The transaction will be financed through a combination of cash and equity as well as debt financing. 

The transaction is subject to the approval of a majority of the unaffiliated stockholders and to customary conditions.  Dell, based in Round Rock, Texas, is a global information technology company that offers its customers a broad range of solutions and services delivered directly by Dell and through other distribution channels.
