Dell plans to sell computer factories

Analysis

Dell Inc is trying to sell computer factories around the world in efforts to cut cost and improve profitability, the Wall Street Journal said.

In recent months, Dell has approached contract computer manufacturers with offers to sell the plants, the paper said, citing people familiar with the matter.

One person briefed on the plan told the Journal that he expects Dell to sell most, possibly all, of its factories “within the next 18 months.” Other factories could be close, the person said.

The most likely buyers of Dell's factories will be big contract manufacturers, most of which are based in Asia, the paper said. (Reuters)
