Dell announced this morning that it will acquire Perot Systems Corporation for $3.9 billion. The all-cash transaction is expected to close in the November to January time frame.

The $30 per share offer for Perot represents a 68% price premium to Friday’s close.

Perot will become a services unit within Dell as it attempts to diversify beyond hardware sales. Perot President and CEO Peter Altabef will say on, Dell says.

  1. In the most recent quarter, healthcare accounted for 48% of Perot’s total revenue. They’re not just diversifying beyond hardware sales, they’re continuing their push into healthcare.

    I wonder if there will be any issues reconciling Dell’s recent partnership with eClinicalWorks with Perot’s long-standing relationship with athenahealth?

  2. This merger appears to be targeting HP+EDS as well as IBM.

    Specifically for Healthcare IT, wondering if now Dell will support other EMR’s besides eClinicalWorks, such as NextGen, MedFlow and AllScripts – in addition to AthenaHealth and their already mentioned relationship to Perot.

    I have met Dell’s CTO (who left recently) and feel that they have a decent “cloud” strategy which would synergize well with PerotSystems’ processes for datacenters, resulting in a packaged service for remote storage and access to medical records. This, in turn, positions the new company for tele-medicine, e-prescribing.
