The Special Committee of the Board of Directors of Dell Inc. mailed the following letter to the Company’s shareholders today




July 8, 2013

Dear Shareholders:

We are writing to you in the final days leading up the Special Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for July 18, 2013 to remind you of our recommendation that you cast your vote “FOR” the go-private transaction. Doing so will secure $13.65 in cash for each share of Dell stock you own, thereby capturing a substantial and certain premium to the price at which Dell stock was trading before rumors of a transaction were reported by the media.

As an independent Special Committee of the Board of Directors, whose only goal is to achieve the best outcome for all Dell shareholders, we have conducted a rigorous and objective evaluation and analysis of the company and the full range of strategic and financial alternatives available to it. The $13.65 per share in cash go-private transaction provides the highest value and greatest certainty of any available alternative at this point in what has been a robust and diligent 10-month process. Conversely, we believe a rejection of this transaction would expose Dell and its shareholders to risks that are likely to erode rather than create value – and failing to vote has the same effect as voting against the transaction.

Once again, our recommendation has not changed and we urge you to vote the enclosed WHITE card in support of $13.65 per share in cash.

Telephone and internet voting has been arranged for your convenience. Simply follow the instructions on the enclosed form of proxy to vote today. Regardless of the number of shares of Company stock that you own, your vote is important. If you fail to vote or abstain from voting on the transaction, the effect will be the same as a vote against the transaction.

The Special Committee urges you to act now and secure the certain and attractive premium afforded to you by the $13.65 go-private transaction by voting the enclosed WHITE proxy card TODAY. We also urge you to discard any proxy card or other materials sent to you by Carl Icahn, Southeastern Asset Management and their affiliates. If you have already returned a gold proxy card, it’s not too late – you can change your vote by internet or phone, using the information on the enclosed proxy card.
