The acquisition of Exanet will give Dell its first R&D center in Israel
Dell Inc. is acquiring the business of bankrupt Israeli start-up Exanet Ltd. for $12 million, a month after the company went into receivership. "Globes" revealed last month that Dell was likely to buy the data storage systems developer.
The acquisition of Exanet will give Dell its first R&D center in Israel. Dell, founded by chairman and CEO Michael Dell, lacks Exanet's clustered storage solution, in contrast to its competitors.
In early December, Exanet informed its employees that it was going out of business because it could not repay the principle on the $10 million loan it had taken from Kreos Capital.
In January, "Globes" reported that Dell representatives were in Israel to close a deal. The sale is a fairly good deal for Exanet's shareholders, Eitan Wertheimer (40%), Evergreen Venture Partners (25%), and Giora Yaron (13%), who had come to terms with the business being closed, the company having run out of cash.

[On Muslim prisoners post-911] "Its important for us not just to be able to fight the case legally but also for somebody like him to get them moral support. One should not look at the fact whether or not somebody is convicted.. one should be looking at the fact there is an individual here who is suffering mentally, physically and needs support - just letters and cards to say to him 'Are you okay? Please do not give up hope' - support of that nature is important for individuals like Isa and others like him.. remember this much - he converted to Islam, he doesn't have a Muslim family - where as others may have a Muslim family, extended members who may write to them and support them. Give moral support, it really does help a prisoner when he is sitting in his cell locked up 23 hours of the day.."
