  • Follow Business

ROUND ROCK, TEXAS Dell’s board has agreed to an increased offer from founder Michael Dell that would add a special dividend to shareholders.

The Round Rock, Texas, company says a group led by its founder and the investment firm Silver Lake Partners will tack a one-time shareholder payout of 13 cents per share to an offer they made last week to buy the company for $13.75 per share.

Shareholders were scheduled to vote Friday morning on a lower offer to buy the company for $13.65 per share. That vote was postponed.

Shareholders who own the stock as of Aug. 13 will be eligible to vote at a Sept. 12 special meeting on the new deal.
