from the dude-you’re-buying-dell dept.

Dell has confirmed it has received ‘two alternative acquisition proposals‘ from billionaire investor Carl Icahn and the world’s largest equity firm Blackstone. These bids rival the $24.4 billion offer made by co-founder Michael Dell and equity firm Silver Lake last month, who want to take the company private. Dell also confirmed details of the two offers, with both exceeding Michael Dell’s original offer of $13.65 per share, with Blackstone offering $14.25 and Icahn offering $15 per share
