Need to have the following questions answered based on the SEC 10-k Report for Dell. The link and additional information on Dell (might not need) is included below before the questions.
Reading the balance sheet, note Dell is using the financial strategy of negative working capital. This does not mean they cannot pay their bills (this must on the internet somewhere about negative working capital). The grocery industry often uses negative working capital as a strategy. For Dell is only noteworthy. Why the accumulated deficit? With the 3 years presented on the statement of cash flows and the statement of shareholders’ equity, again, you will many areas to present in your SEC 10-K deliverables. A major acquisition or change in ownership often results in issues such as an accumulated deficit. With Dell’s recent profitability you can see how things continue to change.
