Dell to Stop Trading Today as $24.9 Billion Buyout Completed

ROUND ROCK, Texas (AP) -- Dude, you're getting a private company.

Michael Dell and investment firm Silver Lake Partners have completed their $24.9 billion buyout of Dell

The computer company said Tuesday that its shares will stop trading at the end of the day, closing its quarter-century run as a public company.

Company founder Michael Dell hopes to turn around the struggling business as a private company away from the prying eyes of Wall Street.

Critics say the deal undervalued the company but the transaction was approved by Dell shareholders in September.

Under the agreement, Dell stockholders are getting $13.75 in cash for each share of Dell common stock they hold. That is in addition to a special cash dividend of $0.13 per share for total consideration of $13.88 per share in cash.
