Microsoft Corp. said in a statement that it welcomes privatization of Dell, one of the world’s largest makers of PCs, and expects the two companies to continue innovating together. The software giant, which provided $2 billion to support the buyout, also expressed hopes that Dell will continue to use platforms developed by Microsoft.

“Microsoft has provided a $2 billion loan to the group that has proposed to take Dell private. Microsoft is committed to the long term success of the entire PC ecosystem and invests heavily in a variety of ways to build that ecosystem for the future. We are in an industry that is constantly evolving. As always, we will continue to look for opportunities to support partners who are committed to innovating and driving business for their devices and services built on the Microsoft platform,” the official statement by Microsoft reads.

The privatization of Dell promises to make the company more dynamic and responsive to market changes, which should guarantee its success in the long term. Therefore, it was important for Microsoft to ensure that Dell will continue to rely on its operating systems and other software products, particularly Windows and Office.

It is unknown whether Microsoft will also have a seat in the new board of directors and whether it will be able to influence Dell’s strategic decisions going forward.
