Could Michael Dell be Ousted

Could Michael Dell be Ousted Could Michael Dell be Ousted

Carl Icahn announced on Friday, “If our board is elected, Michael Dell will not be running the company.” The pair threatened a proxy battle if the Dell board does not approve their offer. Securities & Exchange Commission released a filing with a letter sent by Icahn and Southeastern to Dell, in which the pair propose that shareholders would retain their shares and receive a choice of either $12 per share in cash or $12 worth of additional Dell stock. The offer almost immediately drew the ire of some large shareholders such as Southeastern, who argued that the company was worth more and publicly pushed for offers above $20 per share. Icahn and Southeastern claimed in their letter to represent nearly 13% of Dell’s total shares outstanding. “We have great respect for Michael Dell for creating and building Dell and also for the ‘negotiating’ ability he has shown in getting his Board to grant to him this almost absurd bargain,” the letter read. “However, we believe all shareholders (at their discretion) should have the opportunity to participate in the upside potential we believe is present, not solely Michael Dell and an opportunistic buyout group leveraging to the hilt the company’s own assets with very little of their own equity.” “This company has suffered long enough from very wrong-headed decisions made by the Board and its management,” the letter read. “Do not make another by putting the company through an unnecessary debilitating proxy fight. Allow the shareholders to decide for themselves which offer they choose.” The Dell board has yet to publicly comment on the letter from Icahn and Southeastern. The pair said this would be superior to the $13.65 per share buyout offer from Michael Dell and Silver Lake, as it would allow shareholders to retain an equity “stub” in the business and participate in Dell’s recovery.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, in a question-and-answer session after his speech Friday at a Chicago banking conference, said it was important to end the "too big to fail" perception for large banks and said more action might be needed even after Dodd-Frank and Basel III rules are fully implemented. Fed boss devoted his speech to the vulnerabilities in the financial system that the U.S. central bank is monitoring. "In light of the current low interest rate environment, we are watching particularly closely for instances of 'reaching for yield' and other forms of excessive risk-taking, which may affect asset prices and their relationships with fundamentals," Bernanke said. Bernanke discussed the threat of a run in money-market funds and the possibility that short-term wholesale markets could dry up in a crisis. Fed Chairman said the legacy from the financial crisis of four years ago remains, with the economy still not regaining lost jobs and as the financial system struggles to deal with the economic, legal and reputational consequences. The Fed is considering whether big firms need increased amount of senior debt, per Bernanke. Fed Boss discussed the way the central bank monitors market risks, including a fumbling reference to whether Microsoft (MSFT) was overvalued. "It may still prove to be a bubble, but so far, so good, right," he said of the software maker. Bernanke said that shadow banking system still posed a threat to financial stability and funding markets might still not be able to cope with a major default. "While the shadow banking sector is smaller today than before the crisis, regulators and the private sector need to address remaining vulnerabilities," Fed Boss said.

The U.S. Treasury Department reported Friday, a budget surplus of $113 billion in April, the largest monthly surplus in five years. April is usually a surplus month because of income tax payments. Tax receipts were $407 billion, up 28% compared to April 2012, while spending was $294 billion, 13% more than same period of 2012. Through the first seven months of fiscal 2013, the U.S. deficit was $488 billion, 32% narrower than during the same period of 2012. April's surplus was the biggest monthly surplus since April 2008.
