LBO Model – Add-On Acquisitions (Dell Case Study Part 4) (35:40)

In this tutorial, we walk through Silver Lake’s $24 billion leveraged buyout of Dell and explain the tasks you might have to complete if you were to analyze this deal as part of a case study in a private equity interview.

In Part 4 of the case study, we walk you through how to find information to make the appropriate assumptions for potential post-buyout add-on acquisitions after the initial leveraged buyout closes, and why some of our sources contradict each other on the numbers.

Then, we show you how to reflect the 2 add-on acquisitions on the Income Statement, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow Statement, and Debt Schedules, and how to make the appropriate purchase price allocation assumptions and pro-forma Balance Sheet adjustments.
