Your post makes sense. Obviously, Mike Dell needs to accellerate the restructurring of his company away from dependence on PC's towards business enterprise products and solutions. That restructurring will take years of time as well as sales of some company assets. Impatient Wall Street
wwill not be pleased with short term negative results, which is after all the primary reason he desires to privatize the company.
If and when Dell is eventually able to withstand a company restruccturing and gain some significant traction in profitable business lines, a process which will likely take 3 to 5 years, Mike Dell and his LBO team will have certainly earned the right to then profit from their work. Who among us common stockholders is willing to wait 3 to 5 years for higher gains rather than take now the generous premium offer of $13.65 for our shares? Myself and other rsensible stockholders without hesitation say yes to the curret buyout offer. Southeasern , and a few greed yamateur stock pickers, want more now, without assumig the risk or years necessary to reposition the business. They are silly and unreasonable.
Hope this helps.
