Seriously? Michael Dell & Silver Lake making the below claim...like the pot calling the kettle black...take a look into the mirror!!
On Monday, Dell consented to allow Carl Icahn a confidential peep at its books, raising the possibility that he might submit an offer to counter the $13.65-a-share bid from founder Michael Dell and private-equity shop Silver Lake Partners. However, the buyout group is gambling that he won’t place a bid before March 22, when the “go-shop” period ends for other bidders to emerge, as an inside source says that the partners do not intend to sweeten their offer, and view Icahn as an interloper bent on lining his pockets.
