Dell LBO Reportedly Close

The Wall Street Journal said the deal was still being worked on late Sunday

Dell is close to going private according to what CNBC's David Faber said early Monday morning.

Faber puts the price at $13.50-a-share, 14 bucks at most, and said it could be done by Tuesday - or even Wednesday, according to Fortune. The Wall Street Journal said the deal was still being worked on late Sunday. The New York Post claimed it could go for $15-$16 a share.

Dell closed at $13.63 Friday.

Microsoft, as previously reported, is still supposed to kick in $2 billion for a non-equity position that can dictate Dell's use of Windows products and so is Silver Lake with a bit little less than $15 billion in debt coming from four banks.

Then there's Michael Dell's stock and Dell's own overseas money cache, which could be tapped.
