Dell Says, "Thanks, but No Thanks."

Dell walks away.  Doesn't think 3Par is worth bidding any more for.  Bloomberg gives you all you need to know about this deal:

HP’s $33-a-share offer values 3Par at 325 times the company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization during the past year. In 21 computer-services deals in the past five years, acquirers paid a median 16 times trailing Ebitda, according to Bloomberg data.

Believe me, there's no way they are popping Champagne corks over at HP's Palo Alto headquarters.
