It looks like Michael Dell is inching closer to the finish line because proxy firm Glass Lewis backs and recommends Dell's $24.4bn offer. Institutional Shareholder Services, the biggest proxy advisory firm, recommended that Dell investors accept Michael Dell's $24.4 billion leveraged buyout offer. Advisers to both the buyers and to a special committee of Dell?s board had assumed that the I.S.S. report would most likely be unfavorable to the deal.
