Michael Dell revealed at an investor conference in New York that he has considered taking his company private, but he declined to comment on what would make him consider such a move.
At an investor conference in New York Thursday, Michael Dell said he has considered taking his company private.
He made the statement in response to a question at a Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. conference, according to several reports. Dell did not explain why or what the motivation for considering selling his company had been.
Apparently, it was a passing thought, because Dell followed up the comment by saying he is "totally committed to continuing to run the business for a long period of time" and that he has "every intention to continue running the company for the foreseeable future."
