Take that HP! Dell ups the ante on 3Par

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

Today it’s Dell offering mo’ money for 3Par.

Dell sweetened its previous $18 per share bid to $24.50 and helpfully posted to its Web site that 3Par has accepted that offer.

Earlier this week, HP tried to preempt Dell’s original offer with its own $18 per share cash bid.

What isn’t immediately clear is if this bidding war has played out. 3Par’s investor relations page has no posting as to the latest offer. Cisco is reportedly making a big announcement next week–maybe it’ll throw its hat into the 3Par fray. Kidding. Kinda.
