As expected, Dell Technologies Inc. acknowledged in an SEC filing today that it may go public or possibly merge with VMware Inc.
But the company noted in its filing that it is merely exploring these options and may not choose to follow either of them. Dell added that its options “do not include the sale to a third party” of either Dell or VMware.
The filing confirms rumors from earlier this month that Dell has been “considering strategic options” to help pay off its more than $50 billion in debt, which the company incurred when it bought out shareholders to go private less than five years ago and also bought EMC Corp. in 2016.
