FORTUNE -- It seems that Carl Icahn may not be the only one who thinks Michael Dell got a bargain by agreeing to buy his eponymous company for $24.9 billion.
Silver Lake Partners, the private equity firm working with Michael Dell, has disclosed in a regulatory filing that some of its limited partners are making an aggregate co-investment of $350 million. In other words, some institutions that already have exposure to Dell (DELL) via their existing commitments to Silver Lake are effectively doubling down (or more) on this particular deal.
Silver Lake originally agreed to invest just over $1.4 billion into Dell our of its $1.03 billion fourth fund, so this means the fund itself only will have around $1.05 billion of exposure. That's an important number, since private equity funds try not to let any one investment account for more than 10% of their total capital.
A source familiar with the situation says that LP co-invest interest was "heavy" and "oversubscribed."

Not all management buyouts are necessarily bad for shareholders.
FORTUNE -- Ever since Michael Dell first offered to take Dell Inc. (DELL) private, certain people have come out in knee-jerk opposition. "He must know something the rest of us don't," they argue, leading to accusations that Dell is trying to "steal" the company he founded nearly 30 years ago.
First we heard this complaint from longtime Dell stockholders. Then from relative newcomer MOREDan Primack - Aug 16, 2013 1:24 PM ET
Putting the Dell sale in timeline context.
FORTUNE -- The Dell (DELL) buyout seems to have been dragging on forever, but it has a long ways to go before calling the folks at Guinness.
From what I can tell, the longest formal buyout process of all time belongs to Bain Capital and Thomas H. Lee Partners' pursuit of Clear Channel Communications.
In that case, Clear Channel announced on Nov. 14, 2006 that it MOREDan Primack - Aug 5, 2013 1:27 PM ET

Don't expect Michael Dell to raise his price.
FORTUNE -- There are multiple reports out this afternoon that Dell Inc.'s (DELL) special committee may delay Thursday's scheduled shareholder vote on the $24.4 billion buyout proposal from Michael Dell and private equity firm Silver Lake.
