The company's board of directors approved the disbursements, which will amount to a dividend yield of 2.7 percent based on Monday's closing price of $11.86.

“Our efforts to streamline our operations and shift the mix of our business  over the past several years have resulted in sustainably strong cash flow from  operations, enabling us to increase the percentage of capital we’ve allocated  to research and development, capital expenditures and acquisitions while  maintaining an ongoing share repurchase program,” Dell's CFO Brian Gladden said.

Shares in Dell are down more than 15 percent year-to-date.
