AUSTIN, Texas, Sept 12 (Reuters) – Michael Dell clinched
shareholder approval on Thursday for his $25 billion offer to
buy and take Dell Inc private, ending months of
conflict with the company’s largest investors and removing the
uncertainty surrounding the world’s No. 3 PC maker.
Shareholders cast their votes at a special meeting on
Thursday morning in Austin, Texas. Based on preliminary results,
the buyout won their go-ahead and the deal is expected to close
before the end of Dell’s fiscal third quarter.
