Dell Deal ‘Will Not Happen’: Sacconaghi

Dell Buyout 'Will Not Happen': Sacconaghi
An acquisition of Dell doesn't look likely given the hurdles, Sanford Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi says.

The hurdles are too high for a Dell buyout to happen, Sanford Bernstein Senior Analyst Toni Sacconaghi said Tuesday on CNBC.

"I ultimately think when push comes to shove, it will not happen," he said. "It's a very large LBO. This will be one of the largest LBOs of all time, with an acquisition cost well over $20 billion."

On "Fast Money," Sacconaghi also said that it would be a pricey move for any potential buyers.

"Against that backdrop, you have a pretty risky environment in the sense that the PC marketplace is going through a lot of change right now," he said.

While the valuation of Dell stock was "pretty darned attractive" and low interest rates could help spur such a deal, Sacconaghi said that it wasn't likely.

"When push comes to shove, the deal doesn't get done," he added.
