Dell and VMware are in talks to complete a merger. However; this is not your typical merger where one company simply buys another. VMware is a publicly traded company, and Dell is not.

Dell has a major tax debt problem and is exploring this merger as a way to solve it. Essentially what would happen is Dell would buy VMware, and then on paper VMware would somehow own Dell.
