Dell announced to acquire Perot Systems for $3.9 Billion. Looks like Dell has enough cash lying around for large acquisitions like this one.
Perot Systems provides IT services for 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.
Dell's hope with the Perot Systems acquisition is to provide a broader range of IT services and solutions and optimize how they’re delivered, extending the reach of Perot Systems’ capabilities to even the most dynamic customer segments around the world and supply Dell computer systems to more Perot Systems customers.
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.
