Microsoft Involvement in Dell Privatisation Might Not Benefit The Company

Digitimes is reporting that Acer founder Stan Shih, has commented that Dell’s US$2 billion loan from Microsoft may result in more harm than good in the long run for the company.

“Acer founder Stan Shih, commenting on reports about Microsoft’s US$2 billion loan to Dell to aid the PC vendor’s privatization, said that Microsoft’s “professional advice” may instead block Dell’s road to transformation,” Aaron Lee and Joseph Tsai report for Digitimes. “Shin believes that Dell’s privatization aims at a flexible transformation without needing to concern itself with media and market analysis, but Microsoft’s involvement and its Windows-oriented advice may lead Dell to head into a dead end.”

This came after HP expressed similar concerns about the deal . At the time, HP highlighted that, “Dell has a very tough road ahead. The company faces an extended period of uncertainty and transition that will not be good for its customers. And with a significant debt load, Dell’s ability to invest in new products and services will be extremely limited.”
