Dell to acquire Perot Systems for US$3.9 billion
Posted on 22-Sep-2009 09:49. | Tags Filed under: News.



Dell and Perot Systems have entered a definitive agreement for Dell to acquire Perot Systems in a transaction valued at approximately US$3.9 billion. Terms of the agreement were approved by the boards of directors of both companies.

Dell expects to be well positioned for immediate and long-term growth, providing a broader range of IT services and solutions and optimizing how theyíre delivered.

The plan is also to extend the reach of Perot Systemsí capabilities, including in the most dynamic customer segments, around the world and, obviously, supply Dell computer systems to even more Perot Systems customers.

Dellís global commercial customer base spans large corporations, government agencies, health-care providers, educational institutions, and small and medium enterprises (SME). The companyís large existing services business includes breakthroughs in the concept and delivery of modular services, as well as expertise in infrastructure consulting and software-as-a-service. Dell is a leader in computer systems, including standards-based network servers, and in the fast-growing segment of data-storage hardware.

Perot Systems provides applications, technology, infrastructure, business processes and consulting. The company is a leading provider to clients in health-care, government and other commercial segments, from SMEs to the largest global institutions. Perot Systems has a large and growing base of customers and service-delivery capabilities in North America; Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and Asia.

Over the past four quarters Dell and Perot Systems had a combined $16 billion in enterprise-hardware and IT-services revenue, with about $8 billion from enhanced services and support.

Once the acquisition is complete, Perot Systems will become Dellís services unit and be led from Plano by Peter Altabef, the current Perot Systems chief executive officer. At the same time, Dell directors are expected to consider Ross Perot Jr., Perot Systemsí chairman of the board, for appointment to the Dell board.
