Dell (DELL) has reportedly hired boutique investment bank Evercore Partners to run a "go-shop process" that would seek other offers for the company should a group led by Silver Lake make a bid. The idea is to protect Dell from expected lawsuits and criticism that it didn't get the best offer possible. Silver Lake's proposal is likely to value Dell at $23-24B vs its market cap of $22.3B.
