    Tracking Stock

    What is your stock ticker symbol?

    Dell Technologies is a privately-controlled company and does not have publicly-traded Class A, Class B or Class C Common Stock.

    After the completion of the merger with EMC Corp on September 7, 2016, Dell Technologies issued Class V Common Stock or “tracking stock” shares that are intended to track the performance of a portion of Dell Technologies’ economic interest in the VMware business. Dell Technologies’ Class V Common stock is listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and traded under the trading symbol “DVMT.” The shares began trading on September 7, 2016.

    What is a tracking stock?

    A tracking stock is a separate class or series of a company’s common stock that is intended to reflect the economic performance of a defined set of assets and liabilities, usually consisting of a specific business or subsidiary.

    How are Dell Technologies’ interests aligned with the interests of the holders of the Class V Common Stock?

    Dell Technologies is the largest stockholder of VMware. The owners of the Class A common stock, Class B common stock and Class C common stock, or the DHI Group common stock, of Dell Technologies, which includes Michael S. Dell and the Silver Lake Partners stockholders, have an indirect economic interest in the approximately 35% of the VMware common stock owned by Dell Technologies that are not attributed to the holders of the Class V Common Stock. As a result, the owners of the DHI Group common stock have an indirect economic interest in approximately 28% of the VMware business. We believe this significant ownership interest by Dell Technologies in VMware provides a significant incentive for the company to promote success at VMware and aligns Dell Technologies’ interests with the interests of the holders of the Class V Common Stock.

    Will the Class V Common Stock pay a dividend?

    Dell Technologies does not presently intend to pay dividends on shares of Class V Common Stock or DHI Group common stock. If VMware were to pay a dividend on the VMware common stock owned by Dell Technologies that is attributable to the Class V Group, Dell Technologies could, but would not be required to, distribute some or all of that amount to the holders of Class V Common Stock.

    VMware does not currently pay dividends on its common stock, and any decisions regarding dividends on the VMware common stock would be a decision of VMware’s board of directors.

    Where can I find Shareholder Tax Basis Information for the Class V Common stock?

    Shareholder Tax Basis Information for the Class V Common or Tracking Stock can be found in the Tracking Stock Information section of our Investor Relations website.

    Why is Dell Inc’s common stock no longer traded publicly?

The merger transaction closed on October 29, 2013, and the company’s common shares were delisted from the NASDAQ Stock Market.

    Why is EMC's stock no longer traded publicly?

The merger transaction closed on September 7, 2016, and the EMC’s common shares were converted to $24.05 in cash and approximately 0.111 shares of the Class V Common Stock for each share of EMC common stock. As of September 7, 2016, the ticker symbol EMC is no longer used.
