A buyout deal for Dell could be announced within two weeks. The price will likely be between $13.50 and $14 a share, with an equity investment from Silver Lake and other potential investors of roughly $2 billion.

As part of the deal, Dell is considering repatriating some of its overseas cash to bring down the amount of equity that would be needed to complete a buyout.

Founder and CEO Michael Dell would also make an investment, including not only his current 15 percent stake in the company but also an investment of fresh capital.

The debt financing, which could approach as much as $15 billion, would also likely be oversubscribed.
