(Reuters) – Dell Technologies Inc said on Tuesday it has received shareholder approval for its earlier announced deal to buy back shares tied to its interest in software maker VMware <DVMT.N>, paving the way for it to return to the market.
Dell said its Class C shares are expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Dec. 28.
The company had sweetened the offer for the VMware tracking stockholders to $23.9 billion (18.78 billion pounds) from $21.7 billion in November.
The deal, announced in July, allows Dell to become a publicly listed company without an initial public offering, which would likely have involved grilling by stock market investors over Dell’s $52.7 billion debt pile.
