Pennsylvania Public School Employees' Retirement System and Domini Social Investment each has voted its Dell Inc. shares in favor of the company-endorsed buyout, led by Michael S. Dell, chairman and CEO, and Silver Lake Partners, according to separate statements from the funds.
Information on the number of shares owned by the $50.5 billion Harrisburg-based PennPSERS and Domini could not be learned by press time.
Dell has rescheduled the vote on the buyout proposal for Sept. 12.
The Dell/Silver Lake proposal would take the company private, offering $13.75 a share and a 13-cent-per-share special dividend.
A joint effort by Carl Icahn, affiliated Icahn funds and Southeastern Asset Management seeks to defeat the proposal to open the way for the company to consider its counteroffer, which would offer $14 a share, while keeping the company public.
