NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(unaudited)



NOTE 1 - OVERVIEW AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

References in these Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements to the "Company" or "Dell Technologies" mean Dell Technologies Inc. individually and together with its consolidated subsidiaries.

Basis of Presentation - The accompanying unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying Notes filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2021. These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). In the opinion of management, the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reflect all adjustments of a normal recurring nature considered necessary to fairly state the financial position of Dell Technologies Inc. as of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, the results of its operations and corresponding comprehensive income (loss) for the three and nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, its cash flows for the nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, and its statements of stockholders' equity for the three and nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020.

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying Notes. Management has considered the actual and potential economic impacts of the coronavirus disease 2019 ("COVID-19") pandemic on the Company's critical and significant accounting estimates. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The results of operations and comprehensive income (loss), cash flows, and statements of stockholders' equity for the three and nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year or for any other fiscal period.

The Company's fiscal year is the 52- or 53-week period ending on the Friday nearest January 31. Both the fiscal year ending January 28, 2022 ("Fiscal 2022") and fiscal year ended January 29, 2021 ("Fiscal 2021") are 52-week periods.

Principles of Consolidation - These Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of Dell Technologies and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, as well as the accounts of VMware, Inc. and SecureWorks Corp. ("Secureworks"), each of which is majority-owned by Dell Technologies. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated.

Unless the context indicates otherwise, references in these Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements to "VMware" mean the VMware reportable segment, which reflects the operations of VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) within Dell Technologies.

The Company also consolidates Variable Interest Entities ("VIEs") where it has been determined that the Company is the primary beneficiary of the applicable entities' operations. For each VIE, the primary beneficiary is the party that has both the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact the VIE's economic performance and the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits of the VIE that could potentially be significant to such VIE. In evaluating whether the Company is the primary beneficiary of each entity, the Company evaluates its power to direct the most significant activities of the VIE by considering the purpose and design of each entity and the risks each entity was designed to create and pass through to its respective variable interest holders. The Company also evaluates its economic interests in each of the VIEs. See Note 3 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information regarding consolidated VIEs.

Spin-off of VMware, Inc.- On November 1, 2021, subsequent to the close of the Company's third quarter of Fiscal 2022, the Company completed its previously announced spin-off of VMware, Inc. by means of a special stock dividend (the "VMware Spin-off"). The VMware Spin-off was effectuated pursuant to a Separation and Distribution Agreement, dated as of April 14, 2021 (the "Separation and Distribution Agreement").

Immediately prior to the VMware Spin-off, on November 1, 2021, VMware paid a special cash dividend of $11.5 billion, in aggregate, to VMware, Inc. common stockholders of record as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 29, 2021 (the "Record Date"), of which Dell Technologies received approximately $9.3 billion. Dell Technologies used the net proceeds from its pro rata share of the cash dividend to repay a portion of its outstanding core debt.

DELL TECHNOLOGIES INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)
(unaudited)


Dell Technologies stockholders received approximately 0.440626 of a share of VMware Class A common stock for each share of Dell Technologies common stock held as of the Record Date, based on shares outstanding as of the completion of the VMware Spin-off, with no change to the capital structure of Dell Technologies. As a result of the VMware Spin-off, the pre-transaction stockholders of Dell Technologies own shares in two separate public companies, consisting of (1) VMware, Inc., which continues to own the businesses of VMware, Inc. and its subsidiaries, and (2) Dell Technologies, which continues to own Dell Technologies' other businesses and subsidiaries.

Pursuant to the Dell Technologies Inc. 2013 Stock Incentive Plan that provides for equitable adjustments in the event of a restructuring event, stock awards that were outstanding at the time of the VMware spin-off were adjusted in the ratio of approximately 1.97 to 1. The conversion ratio was based on the Company's pre-VMware Spin-off closing stock price on November 1, 2021 and post-VMware Spin-off opening stock price on November 2, 2021. The adjustment resulted in an increase of 30.1 million restricted stock units and 1.9 million stock options. The adjustment did not result in material incremental stock-based compensation expense as it was required by the Company's equity incentive plan.

In connection with and upon completion of the VMware Spin-off, Dell Technologies and VMware, Inc. entered into various agreements that provide a framework for the relationship between the companies after the transaction, including, among others, a commercial framework agreement, a tax matters agreement, and a transition services agreement.

The Commercial Framework Agreement ("CFA") provides a framework under which the Company and VMware, Inc. will continue their strategic commercial relationship after the transaction, particularly with respect to projects mutually agreed by the parties as having the potential to accelerate the growth of an industry, product, service, or platform that may provide one or both companies with a strategic market opportunity. The CFA has an initial term of five years, with automatic one-year renewals occurring annually thereafter, subject to certain terms and conditions.

The Tax Matters Agreement governs the respective rights, responsibilities, and obligations of Dell Technologies and VMware, Inc. with respect to tax liabilities (including taxes, if any, incurred as a result of any failure of the VMware Spin-off to qualify for tax-free treatment for U.S. federal income tax purposes) and benefits, tax attributes, the preparation and filing of tax returns, the control of audits and other tax proceedings, cooperation, and other matters regarding tax.

The Company will report VMware, Inc. results as discontinued operations beginning in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2022.

See Note 5 and Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information regarding debt repayments and the completion of the VMware Spin-off.

Boomi Divestiture - On October 1, 2021, Dell Technologies completed the sale of Boomi and certain related assets to Francisco Partners and TPG Capital. At the completion of the sale, the Company received total cash consideration of approximately $4.0 billion, resulting in a pre-tax gain on sale of $4.0 billion. The Company ultimately recorded a $3.0 billion gain, net of $1.0 billion in tax expense. The transaction was intended to support the Company's focus on fueling growth initiatives through targeted investments to modernize Dell Technologies' core infrastructure and by expanding in high-priority areas, including hybrid and private cloud, edge, telecommunications solutions, and the Company's APEX offerings. Prior to the divestiture, Boomi's operating results were included within Other businesses and did not qualify for presentation as a discontinued operation.

RSA Security Divestiture- On September 1, 2020, Dell Technologies completed the sale of RSA Security to a consortium led by Symphony Technology Group, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board and AlpInvest Partners for total cash consideration of approximately $2.082 billion, resulting in a pre-tax gain on sale of $338 million. The Company ultimately recorded a $21 million loss, net of $359 million in tax expense due to the relatively low tax basis for the assets sold, particularly goodwill. The transaction included the sale of RSA Archer, RSA NetWitness Platform, RSA SecurID, RSA Fraud and Risk Intelligence, and RSA Conference and was intended to further simplify Dell Technologies' product portfolio and corporate structure. Prior to the divestiture, RSA Security's operating results were included within Other businesses and did not qualify for presentation as a discontinued operation.

VMware, Inc. Acquisition of Pivotal - On December 30, 2019, VMware, Inc. completed its acquisition of Pivotal Software, Inc. ("Pivotal") from the Company by merger (the "Pivotal acquisition"). As of the transaction date, Pivotal's Class A common stock (NYSE: PVTL) ceased to be listed and traded on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"). Due to the Company's ownership of a controlling interest in Pivotal, the Company and VMware, Inc. accounted for the acquisition of the controlling interest in Pivotal as a transaction between entities under common control, and, consequently, the transaction had no net effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements. Subsequent to the Pivotal acquisition, Pivotal operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of VMware, Inc. and Dell Technologies reports Pivotal results within the VMware reportable segment. Prior to the Pivotal acquisition, Pivotal results were reported within Other businesses. This change in Pivotal segment classification was reflected retrospectively in the Company's reportable segment results.

Class V Transaction- On December 28, 2018, the Company completed a transaction (the "Class V transaction") in which it paid $14.0 billion in cash and issued 149,387,617 shares of its Class C Common Stock to holders of its Class V Common Stock in exchange for all outstanding shares of Class V Common Stock. The non-cash consideration portion of the Class V transaction totaled $6.9 billion. As a result of the Class V transaction, the tracking stock feature of the Company's capital structure associated with the Class V Common Stock was terminated. The Class C Common Stock is traded on the NYSE.

EMC Merger Transaction- On September 7, 2016, the Company completed its acquisition of EMC Corporation ("EMC") by merger (the "EMC merger transaction").

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

Accounting for Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities from Contracts with Customers - In October 2021, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued guidance which requires companies to apply Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, to recognize and measure contract assets and contract liabilities from contracts with customers acquired in a business combination. Public entities must adopt the new guidance for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact and timing of adoption of this guidance.

Reference Rate Reform - In March 2020, the FASB issued guidance which provides temporary optional expedients and exceptions to GAAP guidance on contract modifications and certain hedging relationships to ease the financial reporting burdens related to the expected market transition from the London Interbank Offered Rate to alternative reference rates. The Company may elect to apply the amendments prospectively through December 31, 2022. Adoption of the new guidance is not expected to have a material impact on the Company's financial results.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity's Own Equity - In August 2020, the FASB issued guidance to simplify the accounting for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock, and the derivatives scope exception for contracts in an entity's own equity. In addition, the guidance on calculating diluted earnings per share has been simplified and made more internally consistent. The Company early adopted this standard as of January 30, 2021. There was no impact on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements or to diluted earnings per share as of the adoption date.

Simplifying Accounting for Income Taxes - In December 2019, the FASB issued guidance to simplify the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740, Income Taxes, and by clarifying and amending existing guidance in order to improve consistent application of GAAP for other areas of Topic 740. The Company adopted the standard during the three months ended April 30, 2021. The impact of the adoption of this standard was immaterial to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

NOTE 2 - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND INVESTMENTS

The following table presents the Company's hierarchy for its assets and liabilities measured and recorded at fair value on a recurring basis as of the dates indicated:
October 29, 2021 January 29, 2021
Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Total Level 1 Level 2 Level 3 Total
Quoted Prices in Active Markets for Identical Assets Significant Other Observable Inputs Significant Unobservable Inputs Quoted Prices in Active Markets for Identical Assets Significant Other Observable Inputs Significant Unobservable Inputs
(in millions)
Assets:
Money market funds $ 16,757 $ - $ - $ 16,757 $ 8,846 $ - $ - $ 8,846
Equity and other securities 155 - - 155 449 - - 449
Derivative instruments - 195 - 195 - 104 - 104
Total assets $ 16,912 $ 195 $ - $ 17,107 $ 9,295 $ 104 $ - $ 9,399

Derivative instruments $ - $ 100 $ - $ 100 $ - $ 133 $ - $ 133
Total liabilities $ - $ 100 $ - $ 100 $ - $ 133 $ - $ 133

The following section describes the valuation methodologies the Company uses to measure financial instruments at fair value:

Money Market Funds - The Company's investments in money market funds that are classified as cash equivalents hold underlying investments with a weighted average maturity of 90 days or less and are recognized at fair value. The valuations of these securities are based on quoted prices in active markets for identical assets, when available, or pricing models whereby all significant inputs are observable or can be derived from or corroborated by observable market data. The Company reviews security pricing and assesses liquidity on a quarterly basis. As of October 29, 2021, the Company's U.S. portfolio had no material exposure to money market funds with a fluctuating net asset value.

Equity and Other Securities - The majority of the Company's investments in equity and other securities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis consist of strategic investments in publicly-traded companies. The valuation of these securities is based on quoted prices in active markets.

Derivative Instruments- The Company's derivative financial instruments consist primarily of foreign currency forward and purchased option contracts and interest rate swaps. The fair value of the portfolio is determined using valuation models based on market observable inputs, including interest rate curves, forward and spot prices for currencies, and implied volatilities. Credit risk is also factored into the fair value calculation of the Company's derivative financial instrument portfolio. See Note 6 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a description of the Company's derivative financial instrument activities.

Deferred Compensation Plans- The Company offers deferred compensation plans for eligible employees, which allow participants to defer payment for a portion of their compensation. Assets were the same as liabilities associated with the plans at approximately $361 million and $308 million as of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, respectively, and are included in other assets and other liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position. The net impact to the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income is not material since changes in the fair value of the assets substantially offset changes in the fair value of the liabilities. As such, assets and liabilities associated with these plans have not been included in the recurring fair value table above.

Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Nonrecurring Basis- Certain assets are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis and therefore are not included in the recurring fair value table above. These assets consist primarily of non-financial assets such as goodwill and intangible assets. See Note 7 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information about goodwill and intangible assets.

As of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, the Company held private strategic investments of $1.3 billion and $1.0 billion, respectively. As these investments represent early-stage companies without readily determinable fair values, they are not included in the recurring fair value table above.

The Company has elected to apply the measurement alternative for these investments. Under the alternative, the Company measures investments without readily determinable fair values at cost, less impairment, adjusted by observable price changes. The Company must make a separate election to use the alternative for each eligible investment and is required to reassess at each reporting period whether an investment qualifies for the alternative. In evaluating these investments for impairment or observable price changes, the Company uses inputs including pre- and post-money valuations of recent financing events and the impact of those events on its fully diluted ownership percentages, as well as other available information regarding the issuer's historical and forecasted performance.

Carrying Value and Estimated Fair Value of Outstanding Debt - The following table presents the carrying value and estimated fair value of the Company's outstanding debt as described in Note 5 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, including the current portion, as of the dates indicated:
October 29, 2021 January 29, 2021
Carrying Value Fair Value Carrying Value Fair Value
(in billions)
Senior Secured Credit Facilities $ 6.2 $ 6.3 $ 6.2 $ 6.3
First Lien Notes $ 18.3 $ 22.8 $ 18.3 $ 22.8
Unsecured Notes and Debentures $ 0.8 $ 1.2 $ 1.2 $ 1.6
Senior Notes $ 1.6 $ 1.7 $ 2.7 $ 2.8
EMC Notes $ - $ - $ 1.0 $ 1.0
VMware Notes $ 10.7 $ 11.1 $ 4.7 $ 5.3
Margin Loan Facility $ - $ - $ 4.0 $ 3.9

The fair values of the outstanding debt shown in the table above, as well as the debt of Dell Financial Services and its affiliates ("DFS") described in Note 3 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, were determined based on observable market prices in a less active market or based on valuation methodologies using observable inputs and were categorized as Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy. The carrying value of DFS debt approximates fair value. Outstanding debt is recorded at carrying value and, as such, is not included in the recurring fair value table above.

Fixed income debt securities 333 - (6) 327 176 9 - 185
Total securities $ 1,827 $ 1,624

Equity and other securities - The Company has strategic investments in publicly-traded and privately-held companies. For the nine months ended October 29, 2021, the equity and other securities without readily determinable fair values of $1.3 billion increased by $411 million, primarily due to upward adjustments for observable price changes of $448 million, partially offset by $37 million of downward adjustments that were primarily attributable to observable price changes. The remainder of equity and other securities consists of publicly-traded investments that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

Fixed income debt securities - The Company has fixed income debt securities carried at amortized cost. The debt securities are held as collateral for borrowings. The Company intends to hold the investments to maturity. Unrealized gains relate to foreign currency impacts.

NOTE 3 - FINANCIAL SERVICES

The Company offers or arranges various financing options, services, and alternative payment structures for its customers in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand through Dell Financial Services and its affiliates ("DFS"). The Company also arranges financing for some of its customers in various countries where DFS does not currently operate as a captive enterprise. The Company further strengthens customer relationships through flexible consumption models, which enable the Company to offer its customers the option to pay over time and, in certain cases, based on utilization, to provide them with financial flexibility to meet their changing technological requirements. The key activities of DFS include originating, collecting, and servicing customer financing arrangements primarily related to the purchase or use of Dell Technologies products and services. In some cases, DFS also offers financing on the purchase of third-party technology products that complement the Dell Technologies portfolio of products and services. New financing originations were $2.0 billion and $2.1 billion for the three months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, respectively, and $5.8 billion and $6.5 billion for the nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, respectively.

The Company's loan and lease arrangements with customers are aggregated into the following categories:

Revolving loans- Revolving loans offered under private label credit financing programs provide qualified customers with a revolving credit line for the purchase of products and services offered by Dell Technologies. These private label credit financing programs are referred to as Dell Preferred Account ("DPA") and Dell Business Credit ("DBC"). The DPA product is primarily offered to individual consumer customers, and the DBC product is primarily offered to small and medium-sized commercial customers. Revolving loans in the United States bear interest at a variable annual percentage rate that is tied to the prime rate. Based on historical payment patterns, revolving loan transactions are typically repaid within twelve months on average. Due to the short-term nature of the revolving loan portfolio, the carrying value of the portfolio approximates fair value.

Fixed-term leases and loans - The Company enters into financing arrangements with customers who seek lease financing for equipment. DFS leases are classified as sales-type leases, direct financing leases, or operating leases. Direct financing leases are immaterial. Leases that commenced prior to the effective date of the current lease accounting standard continue to be accounted for under previous lease accounting guidance. Leases with business customers have fixed terms of generally twoto four years.

The Company also offers fixed-term loans to qualified small businesses, large commercial accounts, governmental organizations, educational entities, and certain individual consumer customers. These loans are repaid in equal payments including interest and have defined terms of generally threeto five years. The fair value of the fixed-term loan portfolio is determined using market observable inputs. The carrying value of these loans approximates fair value.

Total customer receivables, gross $ 9,705 $ 461 $ 34 $ 10,200 $ 9,927 $ 360 $ 104 $ 10,391

Aging is likely to fluctuate as a result of the variability in volume of large transactions entered into over the period, and the administrative processes that accompany those larger transactions. Aging is also impacted by the timing of the Dell Technologies fiscal period end date, relative to calendar month-end customer payment due dates. As a result of these factors, fluctuations in aging from period to period do not necessarily indicate a material change in the collectibility of the portfolio.

Fixed-term consumer and commercial customer receivables are placed on non-accrual status if principal or interest is past due and considered delinquent, or if there is concern about collectibility of a specific customer receivable. These receivables identified as doubtful for collectibility may be classified as current for aging purposes. Aged revolving portfolio customer receivables identified as delinquent are charged-off. Receivables are moved back to accrual status when the collection of interest is probable, or the collection of the net investment is no longer doubtful.

The categories shown in the tables above segregate customer receivables based on the relative degrees of credit risk. The credit quality indicators for DPA revolving accounts are measured primarily as of each quarter-end date, while all other indicators are generally updated on a periodic basis.

For DPA revolving receivables shown in the table above, the Company makes credit decisions based on proprietary scorecards, which include the customer's credit history, payment history, credit usage, and other credit agency-related elements. The higher quality category includes prime accounts generally of a higher credit quality that are comparable to U.S. customer FICO scores of 720 or above. The mid-category represents the mid-tier accounts that are comparable to U.S. customer FICO scores from 660 to 719. The lower category is generally sub-prime and represents lower credit quality accounts that are comparable to U.S. customer FICO scores below 660. For the DBC revolving receivables and fixed-term commercial receivables shown in the table above, an internal grading system is utilized that assigns a credit level score based on a number of considerations, including liquidity, operating performance, and industry outlook. The grading criteria and classifications for the fixed-term products differ from those for the revolving products as loss experience varies between these product and customer groups. The credit quality categories cannot be compared between the different classes as loss experience varies substantially between the classes.

DFS Debt

The Company maintains programs that facilitate the funding of leases, loans, and other alternative payment structures in the capital markets. The majority of DFS debt is non-recourse to Dell Technologies and represents borrowings under securitization programs and structured financing programs, for which the Company's risk of loss is limited to transferred loan and lease payments and associated equipment. The following table presents DFS debt as of the dates indicated.

DFS U.S. Debt

Asset-Based Financing and Securitization Facilities - The Company maintains separate asset-based financing facilities and a securitization facility in the United States, which are revolving facilities for fixed-term leases and loans and for revolving loans, respectively. This debt is collateralized solely by the U.S. lease and loan payments and associated equipment in the facilities. The debt has a variable interest rate and the duration of the debt is based on the terms of the underlying loan and lease payment streams. As of October 29, 2021, the total debt capacity related to the U.S. asset-based financing and securitization facilities was $4.5 billion. The Company enters into interest swap agreements to effectively convert a portion of this debt from a floating rate to a fixed rate. See Note 6 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information about interest rate swaps.

The Company's U.S. securitization facility for revolving loans is effective through June 25, 2022. The Company's two U.S. asset-based financing facilities for fixed-term leases and loans are effective through July 10, 2023 and July 26, 2022, respectively.

The asset-based financing and securitization facilities contain standard structural features related to the performance of the funded receivables, which include defined credit losses, delinquencies, average credit scores, and minimum collection requirements. In the event one or more of these criteria are not met and the Company is unable to restructure the facility, no further funding of receivables will be permitted and the timing of the Company's expected cash flows from over-collateralization will be delayed. As of October 29, 2021, these criteria were met.

Fixed-Term Securitization Offerings - The Company periodically issues asset-backed debt securities under fixed-term securitization programs to private investors. The asset-backed debt securities are collateralized solely by the U.S. fixed-term leases and loans in the offerings, which are held by Special Purpose Entities ("SPEs"), as discussed below. The interest rate on these securities is fixed and ranges from 0.18% to 5.92% per annum, and the duration of these securities is based on the terms of the underlying loan and lease payment streams.

Securitization Facility - The Company maintains a securitization facility in Europe for fixed-term leases and loans. This facility is effective through December 21, 2022 and had a total debt capacity of $934 million as of October 29, 2021.

The securitization facility contains standard structural features related to the performance of the securitized receivables, which include defined credit losses, delinquencies, average credit scores, and minimum collection requirements. In the event one or more of these criteria are not met and the Company is unable to restructure the program, no further funding of receivables will be permitted and the timing of the Company's expected cash flows from over-collateralization will be delayed. As of October 29, 2021, these criteria were met.

Variable Interest Entities

In connection with the asset-based financing facilities, securitization facilities, and fixed-term securitization offerings discussed above, the Company transfers certain U.S. and European loan and lease payments and associated equipment to SPEs that meet the definition of a Variable Interest Entity ("VIE") and are consolidated, along with the associated debt detailed above, into the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, as the Company is the primary beneficiary of those VIEs. The SPEs are bankruptcy-remote legal entities with separate assets and liabilities. The purpose of the SPEs is to facilitate the funding of customer loan and lease payments and associated equipment in the capital markets.

Some of the SPEs have entered into financing arrangements with multi-seller conduits that, in turn, issue asset-backed debt securities in the capital markets. DFS debt outstanding held by the consolidated VIEs is collateralized by the loan and lease payments and associated equipment. The Company's risk of loss related to securitized receivables is limited to the amount by which the Company's right to receive collections for assets securitized exceeds the amount required to pay interest, principal, and fees and expenses related to the asset-backed securities. The Company provides credit enhancement to the securitization in the form of over-collateralization.

The following table presents financing receivables and equipment under operating leases, net held by the consolidated VIEs as of the dates indicated:
October 29, 2021 January 29, 2021

Debt, net of unamortized debt issuance costs
Short-term $ 4,180 $ 4,208
Long-term $ 2,826 $ 2,841

Loan and lease payments and associated equipment transferred via securitization through SPEs were $1.4 billion and $1.6 billion for the three months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, respectively, and $4.1 billion and $4.6 billion for the nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, respectively.

Customer Receivables Sales

To manage certain concentrations of customer credit exposure, the Company may sell selected fixed-term customer receivables to unrelated third parties on a periodic basis, without recourse. The amount of customer receivables sold for this purpose was $180 million and $414 million for the nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, respectively. The Company's continuing involvement in such customer receivables is primarily limited to servicing arrangements. The transactions are accounted for as sales and, accordingly, the customer receivables are derecognized from the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position at the time of sale.

NOTE 4 - LEASES

The Company enters into leasing transactions in which the Company is the lessee. These lease contracts are typically classified as operating leases. The Company's lease contracts are generally for office buildings used to conduct its business, and the determination of whether such contracts contain leases generally does not require significant estimates or judgments. The Company also leases certain global logistics warehouses, employee vehicles, and equipment. As of October 29, 2021, the remaining terms of the Company's leases range from less than one month to approximately 25 years.

The Company also enters into leasing transactions in which the Company is the lessor, primarily through customer financing arrangements offered through DFS. DFS originates leases that are primarily classified as either sales-type leases or operating leases. See Note 3 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information on the DFS lease portfolio and related lease disclosures.

(a) Subsequent to October 29, 2021, the Company used the net proceeds from its $9.3 billion pro rata share of the cash dividend received in connection with the VMware Spin-off, as well as cash on hand, to repay $3.12 billion principal amount of the 2.00% Term Loan B-2 Facility due September 2025, $3.13 billion principal amount of the 1.84% Term Loan A-6 Facility due March 2024, $1.63 billion principal amount of the 7.125% Senior Notes due June 2024, and $1.50 billion principal amount of the 5.45% First Lien Notes due June 2023.
(b) Given the probability of the close of the VMware Spin-off and the Company's intent and ability to repay, the Company classified $9.4 billion principal amount of debt as short-term liabilities on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position as of October 29, 2021.

During the nine months ended October 29, 2021, the net decrease in the Company's debt balance was primarily due to:
repayment of $1.0 billion principal amount of the 3.375% EMC Notes due June 2023;
repayment of $4.0 billion principal amount of the 2.44% Margin Loan Facility due April 2022;
repayment of $1.1 billion principal amount of the 5.875% Senior Notes due June 2021; and
repayment of $0.4 billion principal amount of the 4.625% Unsecured Notes due April 2021.

See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about debt repayments that occurred subsequent to October 29, 2021.

Secured Debt

Senior Secured Credit Facilities - The Company has entered into a credit agreement (the "Existing Credit Agreement") that provides for senior secured credit facilities (the "Senior Secured Credit Facilities") comprising (a) term loan facilities and (b) a senior secured Revolving Credit Facility, which provides for a borrowing capacity of up to $4.5 billion for general corporate purposes, including capacity for up to $0.5 billion of letters of credit and for borrowings of up to $0.4 billion under swing-line loans. The Revolving Credit Facility expires December 20, 2023.

As of October 29, 2021, available borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility totaled $4.5 billion. The Senior Secured Credit Facilities provide that the borrowers have the right at any time, subject to customary conditions, to request incremental term loans or incremental revolving commitments.

On February 18, 2021, the Company entered into an eighth refinancing amendment to the credit agreement for the Senior Secured Credit Facilities to refinance the existing term B loans (the "Original Term B Loans") with a new term loan B facility consisting of an aggregate principal amount of $3.1 billion refinancing term B-2 loans (the "Refinancing Term B-2 Loans") maturing on September 19, 2025. Proceeds from the Refinancing Term B-2 Loans, together with other funds available to the borrowers, were used to repay in full the Original Term B Loans and all accrued and unpaid fees in respect thereof.

Except for a change in the interest rate, the Refinancing Term B-2 Loans have substantially the same terms as the Original Term B Loans under the sixth refinancing amendment to the Senior Secured Credit Agreement. Amortization payments on the Refinancing Term B-2 Loans are equal to 0.25% of the aggregate principal amount of Refinancing Term B-2 Loans outstanding on the effective date of the eighth refinancing amendment, payable at the end of each fiscal quarter, commencing with the fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2021.

Borrowings under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities bear interest at a rate per annum equal to an applicable margin, plus, at the borrowers' option, either (a) a base rate, or (b) the London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR"). The Term Loan A-6 Facility

29

Table of Contents
DELL TECHNOLOGIES INC.
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Continued)
(unaudited)

bears interest at LIBOR plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.25% to 2.00% or a base rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.25% to 1.00%. The Refinancing Term B-2 Loans bear interest at LIBOR plus an applicable margin of 1.75% or a base rate plus an applicable margin of 0.75%. Interest is payable, in the case of loans bearing interest based on LIBOR, at the end of each interest period (but at least every three months), in arrears and, in the case of loans bearing interest based on the base rate, quarterly in arrears.

The Term Loan A-6 Facility amortizes in equal quarterly installments in aggregate annual amounts equal to 5% of the original principal amount in each of the first four years after the facility closing date of March 13, 2019, and 80% of the original principal amount in the fifth year after March 13, 2019. The Revolving Credit Facility has no amortization.

The borrowers may voluntarily repay outstanding loans under the term loan facilities and the Revolving Credit Facility at any time without premium or penalty, other than customary "breakage" costs.

All obligations of the borrowers under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities and certain swap agreements, cash management arrangements, and certain letters of credit provided by any lender or agent party to the Senior Secured Credit Facilities or any of its affiliates and certain other persons are secured by (a) a first-priority security interest in certain tangible and intangible assets of the borrowers and the guarantors and (b) a first-priority pledge of 100% of the capital stock of the borrowers, Dell Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company ("Dell"), and each wholly-owned material restricted subsidiary of the borrowers and the guarantors, in each case subject to certain thresholds, exceptions, and permitted liens.

Subsequent to October 29, 2021, the Company repaid the remaining $3.12 billion principal amount of the Term B-2 Loans and the remaining $3.13 billion principal amount of the Term Loan A-6 Facility. On November 1, 2021, the Company entered into a new senior secured Revolving Credit Facility (the "2021 Revolving Credit Facility") to replace the old senior secured Revolving Credit Facility under the Existing Credit Agreement. Following the full redemption of the outstanding term loan facilities and placement of the Revolving Credit Facility, the Existing Credit Agreement was terminated. See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information.

First Lien Notes - Dell International L.L.C. and EMC Corporation (collectively, the "Issuers"), both of which are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Dell Technologies Inc., completed offerings of multiple series of senior secured notes (collectively, the "First Lien Notes") pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S. Various series of the First Lien Notes were issued on June 1, 2016, March 20, 2019, and April 9, 2020 in aggregate principal amounts of $20.0 billion, $4.5 billion, and $2.25 billion, respectively. Interest on the First Lien Notes is payable semiannually. The First Lien Notes are secured on an equal and ratable basis with the Senior Secured Credit Facilities by substantially all of the tangible and intangible assets of the issuers and guarantors that secure obligations under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities, including pledges of all capital stock of the issuers, Dell, and certain wholly-owned material subsidiaries of the issuers and the guarantors, subject to certain exceptions.

In June 2021, Dell International L.L.C and EMC Corporation completed the previously announced offers to exchange any and all outstanding First Lien Notes for registered first lien notes having terms substantially identical to the terms of the First Lien Notes. The Issuers issued an aggregate $18.4 billion principal amount of registered first lien notes in exchange for the same principal amount of First Lien Notes. The aggregate principal amount of unregistered First Lien Notes remaining outstanding following the settlement of the exchange offers was approximately $0.1 billion. Following the exchange offer, such registered first lien notes, together with the remaining unregistered First Lien Notes, are collectively referred to as "First Lien Notes" in these Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

Subsequent to October 29, 2021, the Company repaid $1.5 billion principal amount of First Lien Notes. Further, in conjunction with the termination of the Existing Credit Agreement, the tangible and intangible assets of the issuers and guarantors that secure obligations under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities were released as collateral and the First Lien Notes became fully unsecured. See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about the First Lien Notes principal repayment subsequent to October 29, 2021.

Unsecured Debt

Unsecured Notes and Debentures- The Company has outstanding unsecured notes and debentures (collectively, the "Unsecured Notes and Debentures") that were issued by Dell prior to the acquisition of Dell by Dell Technologies Inc. in the going-private transaction that closed in October 2013. Interest on outstanding borrowings is payable semiannually.

Senior Notes - The senior unsecured notes (collectively, the "Senior Notes") were issued on June 22, 2016 in an aggregate principal amount of $3.3 billion. Interest on outstanding borrowings is payable semiannually. Subsequent to October 29, 2021, the Company repaid the remaining $1.63 billion principal amount of Senior Notes. Following the full redemption of the Senior Note, the indenture governing the Senior Notes was terminated. See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about the Senior Notes principal repayment subsequent to October 29, 2021.

EMC Notes - On September 7, 2016, as result of the merger with EMC, Dell acquired multiple outstanding Notes (collectively, the "EMC Notes"). During the three months ended October 29, 2021, the Company repaid the remaining $1.0 billion principal amount of the EMC Notes.

VMware Notes - VMware, Inc. completed public offerings of unsecured senior notes in the aggregate amounts of $4.0 billion, $2.0 billion, and $6.0 billion on August 21, 2017, April 7, 2020, and August 2, 2021, respectively (the "VMware Notes"). None of the net proceeds of such borrowings will be made available to support the operations or satisfy any corporate purposes of Dell Technologies, other than the operations and corporate purposes of VMware, Inc. and VMware, Inc.'s subsidiaries. Interest on outstanding borrowings is payable semiannually.

VMware Revolving Credit Facility and Term Loan Facilities - On September 12, 2017, VMware, Inc. entered into an unsecured credit agreement, that established a revolving credit facility (the "VMware Revolving Credit Facility") with a syndicate of lenders that provided the company with a borrowing capacity of up to $1.0 billion for VMware, Inc. general corporate purposes. On September 2, 2021, VMware, Inc. entered into an unsecured credit agreement establishing a revolving credit facility with a syndicate of lenders that provides VMware, Inc. with a borrowing capacity of up to $1.5 billion for general corporate purposes (the "2021 VMware Revolving Credit Facility"). The 2021 VMware Revolving Credit Facility replaced VMware, Inc.'s existing $1.0 billion revolving credit facility that was undrawn. Commitments under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility are available for a period of five years, which may be extended, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, by up to twoone-year periods. The credit agreement contains certain representations, warranties and covenants. Commitment fees, interest rates and other terms of borrowing under the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility may vary based on VMware's external credit ratings. As of October 29, 2021, there were no outstanding borrowings under the 2021 VMware Revolving Credit Facility.

In addition, VMware, Inc. received commitments from financial institutions for a 3-year senior unsecured term loan facility and a 5-year senior unsecured term loan facility that would provide VMware, Inc. with a borrowing capacity of up to $4.0 billion (the "VMware Term Loan Facilities"). VMware, Inc. may borrow against the term loan once up to its borrowing capacity of $4.0 billion. Subsequent to October 29, 2021, and in advance of the close of the VMware Spin-off on November 1, 2021, VMware, Inc. borrowed $4.0 billion against the VMware Term Loan Facilities with the proceeds utilized to fund a portion of the special cash dividend paid by VMware, Inc. in connection with the VMware Spin-off transaction. See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about the VMware Spin-off transaction.

None of the net proceeds of the 2021 VMware Revolving Credit Facility or the VMware Term Loan Facilities will be made available to support the operations or satisfy any corporate purposes of Dell Technologies, other than the operations and corporate purposes of VMware, Inc. and VMware, Inc.'s subsidiaries.

DFS Debt

Covenants and Unrestricted Net Assets -The credit agreement for the Senior Secured Credit Facilities contains customary negative covenants that generally limit the ability of Denali Intermediate Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dell Technologies ("Denali Intermediate"), Dell, and Dell's and Denali Intermediate's other restricted subsidiaries to incur debt, create liens, make fundamental changes, enter into asset sales, make certain investments, pay dividends or distribute or redeem certain equity interests, prepay or redeem certain debt, and enter into certain transactions with affiliates. The indenture governing the Senior Notes contains customary negative covenants that generally limit the ability of Denali Intermediate, Dell, and Dell's and Denali Intermediate's other restricted subsidiaries to incur additional debt or issue certain preferred shares, pay dividends on or make other distributions in respect of capital stock or make other restricted payments, make certain investments, sell or transfer certain assets, create liens on certain assets to secure debt, consolidate, merge, sell, or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all assets, enter into certain transactions with affiliates, and designate subsidiaries as unrestricted subsidiaries. The negative covenants under such credit agreements and indenture are subject to certain exceptions, qualifications, and "baskets." The indentures governing the First Lien Notes, the Unsecured Notes and Debentures, and the EMC Notes variously impose limitations, subject to specified exceptions, on creating certain liens, entering into sale and lease-back transactions, and entering into certain asset sales. The foregoing credit agreements and indentures contain customary events of default, including failure to make required payments, failure to comply with covenants, and the occurrence of certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency.

As of October 29, 2021, the Company had certain consolidated subsidiaries that were designated as unrestricted subsidiaries for all purposes of the applicable credit agreements and the indentures governing the First Lien Notes and the Senior Notes. Substantially all of the net assets of the Company's consolidated subsidiaries were restricted, with the exception of the Company's unrestricted subsidiaries, primarily VMware, Inc., Secureworks, and their respective subsidiaries, as of October 29, 2021.

The Senior Secured Credit Facilities and the Revolving Credit Facility are subject to a first lien leverage ratio covenant that is tested at the end of each fiscal quarter of Dell with respect to Dell's preceding four fiscal quarters. The Company was in compliance with all financial covenants as of October 29, 2021.

Subsequent to October 29, 2021 and following the full redemption of the outstanding term loan facilities and Senior Notes, the Existing Credit Agreement and the indenture governing the Senior Notes were terminated. The 2021 Revolving Credit Facility contains customary negative covenants that generally limit the ability of Dell, Dell International L.L.C, and EMC to create liens and make fundamental changes. The 2021 Revolving Credit Facility is subject to an interest coverage ratio covenant that is tested at the end of each fiscal quarter of Dell with respect to Dell's preceding four fiscal quarters. See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about debt repayments that occurred subsequent to October 29, 2021.

NOTE 6 - DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES

As part of its risk management strategy, the Company uses derivative instruments, primarily foreign currency forward and option contracts and interest rate swaps, to hedge certain foreign currency and interest rate exposures, respectively.

The Company's objective is to offset gains and losses resulting from these exposures with gains and losses on the derivative contracts used to hedge the exposures, thereby reducing volatility of earnings and protecting the fair values of assets and liabilities. The earnings effects of the derivative instruments are presented in the same income statement line items as the earnings effects of the hedged items. For derivatives designated as cash flow hedges, the Company assesses hedge effectiveness both at the onset of the hedge and at regular intervals throughout the life of the derivative. The Company does not have any derivatives designated as fair value hedges.

Foreign Exchange Risk

The Company uses foreign currency forward and option contracts designated as cash flow hedges to protect against the foreign currency exchange rate risks inherent in its forecasted transactions denominated in currencies other than the U.S. Dollar. Hedge accounting is applied based upon the criteria established by accounting guidance for derivative instruments and hedging activities. The risk of loss associated with purchased options is limited to premium amounts paid for the option contracts. The risk of loss associated with forward contracts is equal to the exchange rate differential from the time the contract is entered into until the time it is settled. The majority of these contracts typically expire in twelve months or less.

During the three and nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, the Company did not discontinue any cash flow hedges related to foreign exchange contracts that had a material impact on the Company's results of operations due to the probability that the forecasted cash flows would not occur.

The Company uses forward contracts to hedge monetary assets and liabilities denominated in a foreign currency. These contracts generally expire in three months or less, are considered economic hedges, and are not designated for hedge accounting. The change in the fair value of these instruments represents a natural hedge as their gains and losses offset the changes in the underlying fair value of the monetary assets and liabilities due to movements in currency exchange rates.

In connection with expanded offerings of DFS in Europe, forward contracts are used to hedge financing receivables denominated in foreign currencies other than Euro. These contracts are not designated for hedge accounting and most expire within three years or less.

Interest Rate Risk

The Company uses interest rate swaps to hedge the variability in cash flows related to the interest rate payments on structured financing debt. The interest rate swaps economically convert the variable rate on the structured financing debt to a fixed interest rate to match the underlying fixed rate being received on fixed-term customer leases and loans. These contracts are not designated for hedge accounting and most expire within four years or less.

Interest rate swaps are utilized to manage the interest rate risk, at a portfolio level, associated with DFS operations in Europe. The interest rate swaps economically convert the fixed rate on financing receivables to a three-month Euribor floating rate basis in order to match the floating rate nature of the banks' funding pool. These contracts are not designated for hedge accounting and most expire within five years or less.

The Company utilizes cross currency amortizing swaps to hedge the currency and interest rate risk exposure associated with the European securitization program. The cross currency swaps combine a Euro-based interest rate swap with a British Pound or U.S. Dollar foreign exchange forward contract in which the Company pays a fixed British Pound or U.S. Dollar amount and receives a floating amount in Euros linked to the one-month Euribor. The notional value of the swaps amortizes in line with the expected cash flows and run-off of the securitized assets. The swaps are not designated for hedge accounting and expire within five yearsor less.

Goodwill and Intangible Assets Impairment Testing

Goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets are tested for impairment annually during the third fiscal quarter and whenever events or circumstances may indicate that an impairment has occurred.

For the annual impairment review in the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, the Company elected to bypass the assessment of qualitative factors to determine whether it was more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit was less than its carrying amount, including goodwill. In electing to bypass the qualitative assessment, the Company proceeded directly to performing a quantitative goodwill impairment test to measure the fair value of each goodwill reporting unit relative to its carrying amount, and to determine the amount of goodwill impairment loss to be recognized, if any.

Management exercised significant judgment related to the above assessment, including the identification of goodwill reporting units, assignment of assets and liabilities to goodwill reporting units, assignment of goodwill to reporting units, and determination of the fair value of each goodwill reporting unit. The fair value of each goodwill reporting unit is generally estimated using a combination of public company multiples and discounted cash flow methodologies, unless the reporting unit relates to a publicly-traded entity (VMware, Inc. or Secureworks), in which case the fair value is determined based primarily on the public company market valuation. The discounted cash flow and public company multiples methodologies require significant judgment, including estimation of future revenues, gross margins, and operating expenses, which are dependent on internal forecasts, current and anticipated economic conditions and trends, selection of market multiples through assessment of the reporting unit's performance relative to peer competitors, the estimation of the long-term revenue growth rate and discount rate of the Company's business, and the determination of the Company's weighted average cost of capital. Changes in these estimates and assumptions could materially affect the fair value of the goodwill reporting unit, potentially resulting in a non-cash impairment charge.

The fair value of the indefinite-lived trade names is generally estimated using discounted cash flow methodologies. The discounted cash flow methodology requires significant judgment, including estimation of future revenue, the estimation of the long-term revenue growth rate of the Company's business and the determination of the Company's weighted average cost of capital and royalty rates. Changes in these estimates and assumptions could materially affect the fair value of the indefinite-lived intangible assets, potentially resulting in a non-cash impairment charge.

Based on the results of the annual impairment test performed during the three months ended October 29, 2021, the fair values of each of the reporting units exceeded their carrying values. No impairment test was performed during the nine months ended October 29, 2021 other than the Company's annual impairment review.

NOTE 8 - DEFERRED REVENUE

Deferred Revenue - Deferred revenue is recorded for support and deployment services, software maintenance, professional services, training, and software-as-a-service when the Company has a right to invoice or payments have been received for undelivered products or services where transfer of control has not occurred. Revenue is recognized on these items when the revenue recognition criteria are met, generally resulting in ratable recognition over the contract term. The Company also has deferred revenue related to undelivered hardware and professional services, consisting of installations and consulting engagements, which are recognized as the Company's performance obligations under the contract are completed.

The following table presents the changes in the Company's deferred revenue for the periods indicated:
Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended

Long-term deferred revenue $ 14,885 $ 13,422 $ 14,885 $ 13,422
____________________
(a) For the nine months ended October 29, 2021, Other consists of divested deferred revenue from the sale of Boomi. For the nine months ended October 30, 2020, Other consists of divested deferred revenue from the sale of RSA Security. See Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for more information about the divestitures of Boomi and of RSA Security. There was no impact to deferred revenue for the three months ended October 29, 2021 or October 30, 2020 as liabilities in both instances were previously classified as held for sale.

Remaining Performance Obligations - Remaining performance obligations represent the aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to performance obligations not delivered, or partially undelivered, as of the end of the reporting period. Remaining performance obligations include deferred revenue plus unbilled amounts not yet recorded in deferred revenue. The value of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations as of October 29, 2021 was approximately $47 billion. The Company expects to recognize approximately 62% of remaining performance obligations as revenue in the next twelve months, and the remainder thereafter.

The aggregate amount of the transaction price allocated to remaining performance obligations does not include amounts owed under cancellable contracts where there is no substantive termination penalty. The Company applied the practical expedient to exclude the value of remaining performance obligations for contracts for which revenue is recognized in the amount to which the Company has the right to invoice for services performed.

Remaining performance obligation estimates are subject to change and are affected by several factors, including terminations, changes in the scope of contracts, periodic revalidation, adjustments for revenue that have not materialized, and adjustments for currency.

NOTE 9 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Purchase Obligations

The Company has contractual obligations to purchase goods or services, which specify significant terms, including fixed or minimum quantities to be purchased; fixed, minimum, or variable price provisions; and the approximate timing of the transaction. As of October 29, 2021, purchase obligations were $5.2 billion, $0.7 billion, and $0.8 billion for the remaining three months of Fiscal 2022, for Fiscal 2023, and for Fiscal 2024 and thereafter, respectively.

Legal Matters

The Company is involved in various claims, suits, assessments, investigations, and legal proceedings that arise from time to time in the ordinary course of its business, including those identified below, consisting of matters involving consumer, antitrust, tax, intellectual property, and other issues on a global basis.

The Company accrues a liability when it believes that it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and that it can reasonably estimate the amount of the loss. The Company reviews these accruals at least quarterly and adjusts them to reflect ongoing negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of legal counsel, and other relevant information. As additional information is obtained and the Company's views on the probable outcomes of claims, suits, assessments, investigations, or legal proceedings change, the Company would record related impacts to accrued liabilities in the period in which a determination is made. For some matters, the incurrence of a liability is not probable or the amount cannot be reasonably estimated and therefore accruals have not been made.

The following is a discussion of the Company's significant legal matters and other proceedings:

Class Actions Related to the Class V Transaction- Four purported stockholders brought putative class action complaints arising out of the Class V transaction described in Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. The actions were captioned Hallandale Beach Police and Fire Retirement Plan v. Michael Dell et al. (Civil Action No. 2018-0816-JTL), Howard Karp v. Michael Dell et al. (Civil Action No. 2019-0032-JTL), Miramar Police Officers' Retirement Plan v. Michael Dell et al. (Civil Action No. 2019-0049-JTL), and Steamfitters Local 449 Pension Plan v. Michael Dell et al. (Civil Action No. 2019-0115-JTL). The four actions were consolidated in the Delaware Chancery Court into In Re Dell Class V Litigation (Consol. C.A. No. 2018-0816-JTL), which names as defendants the Company's board of directors, Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, and certain stockholders of the Company, including Michael S. Dell. The plaintiffs generally allege that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties to the former holders of Class V Common Stock in connection with the Class V transaction by allegedly causing the Company to enter into a transaction that favored the interests of the controlling stockholders at the expense of such former stockholders. The plaintiffs seek, among other remedies, a judicial declaration that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties and an award of damages, fees, and costs. The plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in August 2019 making substantially similar allegations to those described above. The defendants filed a motion to dismiss the action in September 2019. The court denied the motion in June 2020 and the case is currently in the discovery phase. Trial is currently scheduled to begin on December 5, 2022.

Patent Litigation- On April 25, 2019, Cirba Inc. and Cirba IP, Inc. (collectively, "Cirba") filed a lawsuit against VMware, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware (the "Delaware Court"), alleging two patent infringement claims and three trademark infringement-related claims (the "First Action"). Following a hearing on August 6, 2019, the Delaware Court denied Cirba's preliminary injunction motion. On August 20, 2019, VMware, Inc. filed counterclaims against Cirba, asserting among other claims that Cirba is infringing four VMware, Inc. patents. The Delaware Court severed those claims from the January 2020 trial on Cirba's claims. On January 24, 2020, a jury returned a verdict that VMware, Inc. had willfully infringed Cirba's two patents and awarded approximately $237 million in damages. As to Cirba's trademark-related claims, the jury found that VMware, Inc. was not liable. A total of $237 million was accrued for the First Action as of January 31, 2020, which reflected the estimated losses that were considered both probable and reasonably estimable at that time. The amount accrued for this matter was included in Accrued and other in the Consolidated Statements of Financial Position as of January 31, 2020, and the charge was classified in Selling, general and administrative in the Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss) for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020. On March 9, 2020, the parties filed post-trial motions in the First Action. On December 21, 2020, the Delaware Court granted VMware, Inc.'s request for a new trial based, in part, on Cirba's Inc.'s lack of standing, set aside the verdict and damages award, and denied Cirba's post-trial motions (the "Post-Trial Order").

On October 22, 2019, VMware, Inc. filed a separate lawsuit against Cirba in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia alleging infringement of four additional VMware, Inc. patents (The "Second Action"). The Virginia court transferred the Second Action to the Delaware Court on February 25, 2020. On March 23, 2020, Cirba filed a counterclaim asserting one additional patent against VMware, Inc. The Delaware Court consolidated the First and Second Actions and ordered a consolidated trial on all of the parties' patent infringement claims and counterclaims. On May 3, 2021, the Court denied Cirba's motion to certify the Post-Trial Order to enable an interlocutory appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Also, on May 3, 2021, the Court granted Cirba's motion for leave to assert an additional patent against VMware, Inc. Separately, VMware has filed challenges with the United States Patent and Trademark Office against each of the four patents that are subject of Cirba's allegation. To date, of the four challenges, twoex partereexams have been granted and oneInter PartesReview has been instituted. As of January 29, 2021, VMware, Inc. reassessed its estimated loss accrual for the First Action based on the Post-Trial Order and determined that a loss was no longer probable and reasonably estimable with respect to the consolidated First and Second Actions. Accordingly, the estimated loss accrual recognized during the fiscal year ended January 31, 2020 totaling $237 million was adjusted to $0 with the credit included in Selling, general, and administrative in the Consolidated Statements of Income (Loss) for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2021. VMware, Inc. has reported that it is unable at this time to assess whether, or to what extent, it may be found liable and, if found liable, the amount any damages that may be awarded. VMware, Inc. intends to vigorously defend itself in this matter.

Class Actions Related to VMware, Inc.'s Acquisition of Pivotal- Two purported stockholders brought putative class action complaints arising out of VMware, Inc.'s acquisition of Pivotal Software, Inc. on December 30, 2019 as described in Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. The two actions were consolidated in the Delaware Chancery Court into In re: Pivotal Software, Inc. Stockholders Litigation (Civil Action No. 2020-0440-KSJM). The complaint names as defendants the Company, VMware, Inc., Michael S. Dell, and certain officers of Pivotal. The plaintiffs generally allege that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties to the former holders of Pivotal Class A common stock in connection with VMware, Inc.'s acquisition of Pivotal by allegedly causing Pivotal to enter into a transaction that favored the interests of Pivotal's controlling stockholders at the expense of such former stockholders. The plaintiffs seek, among other remedies, a judicial declaration that the defendants breached their fiduciary duties and an award of damages, fees, and costs. Trial is currently scheduled to begin on July 6, 2022.

Other Litigation - Dell does not currently expect that any other proceedings or matters will have a material adverse effect on its business, financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

In accordance with the relevant accounting guidance, the Company provides disclosures of matters where it is at least reasonably possible that the Company could experience a material loss exceeding the amounts already accrued for these or other proceedings or matters. In addition, the Company also discloses matters based on its consideration of other matters and qualitative factors, including the experience of other companies in the industry, and investor, customer, and employee relations considerations. As of October 29, 2021, the Company does not believe there is a reasonable possibility that a material loss exceeding the amounts already accrued for these or other proceedings or matters has been incurred. However, since the ultimate resolution of any such proceedings and matters is inherently unpredictable, the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows could be materially affected in any particular period by unfavorable outcomes in one or more of these proceedings or matters. Whether the outcome of any claim, suit, assessment, investigation, or legal proceeding, individually or collectively, could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows will depend on a number of factors, including the nature, timing, and amount of any associated expenses, amounts paid in settlement, damages, or other remedies or consequences.

Indemnifications

In the ordinary course of business, the Company enters into contractual arrangements under which it may agree to indemnify other parties for losses incurred from certain events as defined in the relevant contract, such as litigation, regulatory penalties, or claims relating to past performance. Such indemnification obligations may not be subject to maximum loss clauses. Historically, payments related to these indemnifications have not been material to the Company.

NOTE 10 - INCOME AND OTHER TAXES

For the three months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, the Company's effective income tax rate was 18.7% and 37.2%, respectively, on pre-tax income of $4.8 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively. For the nine months ended October 29, 2021 and October 30, 2020, the Company's effective income tax rate was 15.9% and -6.1%, respectively, on pre-tax income of $6.8 billion and $2.0 billion, respectively.

For the three and nine months ended October 29, 2021, the Company's effective income tax rate includes tax expense of $1.0 billion related to the divestiture of Boomi during the period. In comparison, for the nine months ended October 30, 2020, the Company's effective income tax rate includes discrete tax benefits of $746 million related to an audit settlement that was recorded in the second quarter of Fiscal 2021 and tax expenses of $359 million relating to the divestiture of RSA Security during the third quarter of Fiscal 2021. The Company's effective income tax rates were also impacted by changes in the Company's jurisdictional mix of income and lower overall taxes on foreign operations.

The differences between the estimated effective income tax rates and the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% principally result from the Company's geographical distribution of income, differences between the book and tax treatment of certain items, and the discrete tax items discussed above. In certain jurisdictions, the Company's tax rate is significantly less than the applicable statutory rate as a result of tax holidays. The majority of the Company's foreign income that is subject to these tax holidays and lower tax rates is attributable to Singapore and China. A significant portion of these income tax benefits relate to a tax holiday that will be effective until January 31, 2029. The Company's other tax holidays will expire in whole or in part during fiscal years 2022 through 2030. Many of these tax holidays and reduced tax rates may be extended when certain conditions are met or may be terminated early if certain conditions are not met. As of October 29, 2021, the Company was not aware of any matters of non-compliance related to these tax holidays.

The Internal Revenue Service is currently examining fiscal years 2015 through 2019. The Company is also currently under income tax audits in various state and foreign jurisdictions. The Company is undergoing negotiations, and in some cases contested proceedings, relating to tax matters with the taxing authorities in these jurisdictions. The Company believes that it has valid positions supporting its tax returns and that it has provided adequate reserves related to all matters contained in tax periods open to examination. Although the Company believes it has made adequate provisions for the uncertainties surrounding these audits, should the Company experience unfavorable outcomes, such outcomes could have a material impact on its results of operations, financial position, and cash flows. With respect to major U.S., state and foreign taxing jurisdictions, the Company is generally not subject to tax examinations for years prior to the fiscal year ended January 29, 2010.

Judgment is required in evaluating the Company's uncertain tax positions and determining the Company's provision for income taxes. The unrecognized tax benefits were $1.5 billion and $1.4 billion as of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, respectively, and are included in Other non-current liabilities in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position. The Company does not anticipate a significant change to the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits within the next twelve months.

The Company takes certain non-income tax positions in the jurisdictions in which it operates and has received certain non-income tax assessments from various jurisdictions. The Company believes that a material loss in these matters is not probable and that it is not reasonably possible that a material loss exceeding amounts already accrued has been incurred. The Company believes its positions in these non-income tax litigation matters are supportable and that it ultimately will prevail in the matters. In the normal course of business, the Company's positions and conclusions related to its non-income taxes could be challenged and assessments may be made. To the extent new information is obtained and the Company's views on its positions, probable outcomes of assessments, or litigation change, changes in estimates to the Company's accrued liabilities would be recorded in the period in which such a determination is made. In the resolution process for income tax and non-income tax audits, the Company is required in certain situations to provide collateral guarantees or indemnification to regulators and tax authorities until the matter is resolved.

NOTE 14 - EARNINGS PER SHARE

Basic earnings per share is based on the weighted-average effect of all common shares issued and outstanding and is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted-average shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing net income by the weighted-average number of common shares used in the basic earnings per share calculation, adjusted for incremental dilution from non-controlling interests, plus the number of common shares that would be issued assuming exercise or conversion of all potentially dilutive instruments. The Company excludes equity instruments from the calculation of diluted earnings per share if the effect of including such instruments is antidilutive.

For purposes of calculating earnings per share, the Company uses the two-class method. As all classes of Dell Technologies Common Stock share the same rights in dividends, basic and diluted earnings per share are the same for each class of Dell Technologies Common Stock.

The following table presents the basic and diluted earnings per share for Dell Technologies Common Stock for the periods indicated:
Three Months Ended Nine Months Ended

____________________
(a)The incremental dilution from VMware, Inc. attributable to Dell Technologies represents the impact of VMware, Inc.'s dilutive securities on diluted earnings per share of Dell Technologies Common Stock, and is calculated by multiplying the difference between VMware, Inc.'s basic and diluted earnings per share by the number of shares of VMware, Inc. common stock held by the Company. For both periods presented, there was no incremental dilution from Secureworks due to its net loss position.

NOTE 15 - REDEEMABLE SHARES

Through June 27, 2021, awards under the Company's stock incentive plans included certain rights that allowed the holder to exercise a put feature for the underlying Class A or Class C Common Stock after a six month holding period following the issuance of such common stock. The put feature required the Company to purchase the stock at its fair market value. Accordingly, these awards and such common stock were subject to reclassification from equity to temporary equity. The put feature expired on June 27, 2021, and as a result there were no issued and outstanding awards that were reclassified as temporary equity as of October 29, 2021.

As of the fiscal year ended January 29, 2021, the Company determined the award amounts to be classified as temporary equity as follows:

For stock options to purchase Class C Common Stock subject to service requirements, the intrinsic value of the option was multiplied by the portion of the option for which services had been rendered. Upon exercise of the option, the amount in temporary equity represented the fair value of the Class C Common Stock.

For stock appreciation rights, restricted stock units, or restricted stock awards, any of which stock award types are subject to service requirements, the fair value of the share is multiplied by the portion of the share for which services have been rendered.

For share-based arrangements that were subject to the occurrence of a contingent event, those amounts were reclassified to temporary equity based on a probability assessment performed by the Company on a periodic basis. Contingent events included the achievement of performance-based metrics.

The following table presents the amount of redeemable shares classified as temporary equity and summarizes the award type as of the fiscal year ended January 29, 2021:

NOTE 16 - SEGMENT INFORMATION

The Company has three reportable segments that are based on the following business units: Infrastructure Solutions Group ("ISG"); Client Solutions Group ("CSG"); and VMware.

ISG enables the digital transformation of the Company's customers through its trusted multi-cloud and big data solutions, which are built upon a modern data center infrastructure. The ISG comprehensive portfolio of advanced storage solutions includes traditional as well as next-generation storage solutions (such as all-flash arrays, scale-out file, object platforms, and software-defined solutions), while the Company's server portfolio includes high-performance rack, blade, tower, and hyperscale servers. The ISG networking portfolio helps business customers transform and modernize their infrastructure, mobilize and enrich end-user experiences, and accelerate business applications and processes. ISG also offers attached software, peripherals, and services, including support and deployment, configuration, and extended warranty services.

CSG includes sales to commercial and consumer customers of branded hardware (such as desktops, workstations, and notebooks) and branded peripherals (such as displays and projectors), as well as services and third-party software and peripherals. CSG also offers attached software, peripherals, and services, including support and deployment, configuration, and extended warranty services.

VMware works with customers in the areas of hybrid and multi-cloud, virtual cloud networking, digital workspaces, modern applications, and intrinsic security, helping customers manage their IT resources across private clouds and complex multi-cloud, multi-device environments. VMware enables its customers to digitally transform their operations as they ready their applications, infrastructure, and employees for constantly evolving business needs.

As described in Note 1 and Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements, the Company completed the VMware Spin-off on November 1, 2021, subsequent to the close of the third quarter of Fiscal 2022. Beginning in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2022, the Company's Consolidated Statements of Income will be recast to reflect VMware results as discontinued operations. As such, VMware will no longer be identified as a reportable segment. Pursuant to the CFA, Dell Technologies will continue to integrate VMware, Inc.'s products and services with Dell Technologies' offerings and sell them to end users. The results of those transactions will be reflected within CSG and ISG, based on the nature of the underlying offering sold. Dell Technologies will also continue to act as a distributor, purchasing VMware, Inc.'s standalone products and services for resale to end-user customers. The results of this business will be reflected in Other businesses. The Company's prior period segment results will be recast to reflect the change.

The reportable segments disclosed herein are based on information reviewed by the Company's management to evaluate the business segment results. The Company's measure of segment revenue and segment operating income for management reporting purposes excludes the impact of Other businesses, unallocated corporate transactions, the impact of purchase accounting, amortization of intangible assets, transaction-related expenses, stock-based compensation expense, and other corporate expenses, as applicable. The Company does not allocate assets to its reportable segments for internal reporting purposes.

NOTE 18 - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Spin-off of VMware, Inc.

On November 1, 2021, the Company completed its previously announced spin-off of VMware, Inc. as described in Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. Dell Technologies effectuated the VMware Spin-off by means of a special stock dividend of 30,678,605 shares of Class A common stock and 307,221,836 shares of Class B common stock of VMware, Inc. to Dell Technologies stockholders of record as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 29, 2021.

Prior to receipt of the VMware, Inc. common stock by the Company's stockholders, each share of VMware, Inc. Class B common stock automatically converted into one share of VMware, Inc. Class A common stock. As result of these transactions, each holder of record of shares of Dell Technologies common stock as of the distribution record date received approximately 0.440626 of a share of VMware Class A common stock for each share of Dell Technologies common stock held as of such date, based on shares outstanding as of the completion of the VMware Spin-off.

Immediately following the payment by VMware, Inc. to its stockholders of a special cash dividend of $11.5 billion, of which Dell Technologies received approximately $9.3 billion, the separation of VMware, Inc. from Dell Technologies occurred, including through the termination or settlement of certain intercompany accounts and intercompany contracts.

Repayment of Indebtedness and Termination of the Existing Credit Agreement

The Company used the net proceeds from its $9.3 billion pro rata portion of the cash dividend received in connection with the VMware Spin-off, as well as cash on hand, to repay outstanding debt as described below.

On November 1, 2021, the Company repaid the remaining $3,134 million and $3,120 million principal amounts related to the 1.84% Term Loan A-6 Facility due March 2024 and the 2.00% Term Loan B-2 Facility due September 2025, respectively, and terminated all obligations and commitments under the Existing Credit Agreement.

On November 2, 2021, the Company repaid $1,500 million principal amount of the 5.45% First Lien Notes due June 2023 and the remaining $1,625 million principal amount of the 7.125% Senior Notes due June 2024. Further, in conjunction with the termination of the Existing Credit Agreement, the tangible and intangible assets of the issuers and guarantors that secure obligations under the Senior Secured Credit Facilities were released as collateral and the First Lien Notes became fully unsecured.

In connection with the above debt repayments, the Company incurred $181 million of debt breakage fees and recognized $110 million in unamortized debt discounts associated with the early extinguishment of the debt.

2021 Revolving Credit Facility

On November 1, 2021, the Company entered into the 2021 Revolving Credit Facility, a senior unsecured revolving credit facility with JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, and each of the lenders and other parties from time to time party thereto.

The 2021 Revolving Credit Facility, which matures on November 1, 2026, provides the Company with revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $5.0 billion for general corporate purposes and includes a letter of credit sub-facility of up to $500 million and a swing-line loan sub-facility of up to $500 million. The 2021 Revolving Credit Facility also allows the Company to request incremental commitments on one or more occasions in a minimum amount of $10 million.

2023 First Lien Notes Notice of Prepayment

On November 19, 2021, the Company issued a partial redemption notice of $1.25 billion principal amount of the 5.45% First Lien Notes due June 2023 with the repayment expected to occur on December 6, 2021.

We are seeing an accelerated rate of change in the IT industry. We seek to address our customers' evolving needs and their broader digital transformation objectives as they embrace the hybrid multi-cloud environment of today.

In light of this rapid pace of innovation, we continue to invest in research and development, sales, and other key areas of our business to deliver superior products and solutions capabilities and to drive long-term sustainable growth.

Spin-off of VMware, Inc.

As described in Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report, on November 1, 2021, subsequent to the close of the Company's third quarter of Fiscal 2022, the Company completed its previously announced spin-off of VMware, Inc. by means of a special stock dividend (the "VMware Spin-off"). The VMware Spin-off was effectuated pursuant to a Separation and Distribution Agreement, dated as of April 14, 2021 (the "Separation and Distribution Agreement").

Dell Technologies effectuated the VMware Spin-off by means of a special stock dividend of 30,678,605 shares of Class A common stock and 307,221,836 of Class B common stock of VMware, Inc. to Dell Technologies stockholders of record as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 29, 2021. Prior to receipt of the VMware, Inc. common stock by the Company's stockholders, each share of VMware, Inc. Class B common stock automatically converted into one share of VMware, Inc. Class A common stock. As a result of these transactions, each holder of record of shares of Dell Technologies common stock as of the distribution record date received approximately 0.440626 of a share of VMware, Inc. Class A common stock for each outstanding share of Dell Technologies common stock owned by such holder as of such date. VMware, Inc. paid a special cash dividend, pro rata, to each holder of VMware, Inc. common stock in an aggregate amount equal to $11.5 billion, of which Dell Technologies received $9.3 billion.

Immediately following VMware, Inc.'s payment of the special cash dividend, pursuant to the Separation and Distribution Agreement, the businesses of VMware, Inc. were separated from the remaining businesses of Dell Technologies through a series of transactions that resulted in the pre-transaction stockholders of Dell Technologies owning shares in two separate public companies, consisting of (1) VMware, Inc., which continues to own the businesses of VMware, Inc. and its subsidiaries, and (2) Dell Technologies, which continues to own Dell Technologies' other businesses and subsidiaries. In connection with and upon completion of the VMware Spin-off, Dell Technologies and VMware, Inc. entered into a Commercial Framework Agreement (the "CFA"). The CFA provides a framework under which Dell Technologies and VMware, Inc. will continue their strategic commercial relationship after the transaction. The CFA has an initial term of five years, with automatic one-year renewals occurring annually thereafter, subject to certain terms and conditions. Dell Technologies and VMware, Inc. also entered into other agreements that will govern other aspects of their relationship, including, among others, a tax matters agreement and a transition services agreement.

Dell Technologies used the net proceeds from its pro rata share of the special cash dividend received from VMware, Inc., as well as cash on hand, to repay a total of $9.4 billion principal amount of debt. For information about the debt repayments, see Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

The Company will report VMware results as discontinued operations beginning in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2022. See Note 1 and Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information regarding the VMware Spin-off.

Products and Services

We design, develop, manufacture, market, sell, and support a wide range of comprehensive and integrated solutions, products, and services. We are organized into the following business units, which are our reportable segments: Infrastructure Solutions Group; Client Solutions Group; and VMware.

Infrastructure Solutions Group ("ISG")- ISG enables the digital transformation of our customers through our trusted multi-cloud and big data solutions, which are built upon a modern data center infrastructure. ISG works with customers in the area of hybrid cloud deployment with the goal of simplifying, streamlining, and automating cloud operations. ISG solutions are built for multi-cloud environments and are optimized to run cloud native workloads in both public and private clouds, as well as traditional on-premise workloads.

61

Table of Contents

Our comprehensive portfolio of advanced storage solutions includes traditional as well as next-generation storage solutions (such as all-flash arrays, scale-out file, object platforms, and software-defined solutions). We have simplified our storage portfolio to ensure that we deliver the technology needed for our customers' digital transformation. We continue to make enhancements to our portfolio of storage solutions and expect that these enhancements will drive long-term improvements in the business. In May 2020, we released our new PowerStore offering, a differentiated midrange storage solution that enables seamless updates using microservices and container-based software architecture. This offering allows us to compete more effectively within midrange storage and, as a result, we are seeing early signs of improving revenue velocity.

Our server portfolio includes high-performance rack, blade, tower, and hyperscale servers, optimized for artificial intelligence and machine learning workloads. Our networking portfolio helps our business customers transform and modernize their infrastructure, mobilize and enrich end-user experiences, and accelerate business applications and processes.

Our strengths in server, storage, and virtualization software solutions enable us to offer leading converged and hyper-converged solutions, allowing our customers to accelerate their IT transformation by acquiring scalable integrated IT solutions instead of building and assembling their own IT platforms. ISG also offers attached software, peripherals, and services, including support and deployment, configuration, and extended warranty services.

Approximately half of ISG revenue is generated by sales to customers in the Americas, with the remaining portion derived from sales to customers in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa region ("EMEA") and the Asia-Pacific and Japan region ("APJ").

Client Solutions Group ("CSG")- CSG includes branded hardware (such as desktops, workstations, and notebooks) and branded peripherals (such as displays and projectors), as well as third-party software and peripherals. Our computing devices are designed with our commercial and consumer customers' needs in mind, and we seek to optimize performance, reliability, manageability, design, and security. In addition to our traditional hardware business, we have a portfolio of thin client offerings that we believe will allow us to benefit from the growth trends in cloud computing. For our customers that are seeking to simplify client lifecycle management, our PC as-a-Service offering combines hardware, software, lifecycle services, and financing into one all-encompassing solution that provides predictable pricing per seat per month through DFS. CSG also offers attached software, peripherals, and services, including support and deployment, configuration, and extended warranty services.

Approximately half of CSG revenue is generated by sales to customers in the Americas, with the remaining portion derived from sales to customers in EMEA and APJ.

VMware - The VMware reportable segment ("VMware") reflects the operations of VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW) within Dell Technologies. VMware works with customers in the areas of hybrid and multi-cloud, virtual cloud networking, digital workspaces, modern applications, and intrinsic security, helping customers manage their IT resources across private clouds and complex multi-cloud, multi-device environments. VMware's portfolio supports and addresses the key IT priorities of customers: accelerating their cloud journey, modernizing their applications, empowering digital workspaces, transforming networking, and embracing intrinsic security. VMware enables its customers to digitally transform their operations as they ready their applications, infrastructure, and employees for constantly evolving business needs.

Approximately half of VMware revenue is generated by sales to customers in the United States.

Table of Contents
Effective upon the completion of the VMware Spin-off in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2022, as described under "Spin-off of VMware, Inc.," our Consolidated Statements of Income will be recast to reflect VMware results as discontinued operations and as such, VMware will no longer be identified as a reportable segment. Pursuant to the CFA, Dell Technologies will continue to integrate VMware, Inc.'s products and services with Dell Technologies' offerings and sell them to end users. The results of those transactions will be reflected within CSG and ISG, based on the nature of the underlying offering sold. Dell Technologies will also continue to act as a distributor for VMware, Inc., purchasing VMware, Inc.'s standalone products and services for resale to end-user customers. The results of this business will be reflected in Other businesses. The Company's prior period segment results will be recast to reflect the change. See Note 1 and Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information regarding the VMware Spin-off.

Our Other businesses, described below, consist of products and services offerings of Secureworks and Virtustream, which are both majority-owned by Dell Technologies. These businesses are not classified as reportable segments, either individually or collectively, as the results of the businesses are not material to our overall results and the businesses do not meet the criteria for reportable segments.

Secureworks(NASDAQ: SCWX) is a leading global provider of intelligence-driven information security solutions singularly focused on protecting its clients from cyber attacks. The solutions offered by Secureworks enable organizations of varying size and complexity to fortify their cyber defenses to prevent security breaches, detect malicious activity in near real time, prioritize and respond rapidly to security incidents, and predict emerging threats.

Virtustreamoffers cloud software and infrastructure-as-a-service solutions that enable customers to migrate, run, and manage mission-critical applications in cloud-based IT environments.

On October 1, 2021, we completed the sale of Boomi and certain related assets to Francisco Partners and TPG Capital for a total cash consideration of approximately $4.0 billion, resulting in a pre-tax gain on sale of $4.0 billion. The Company ultimately recorded a $3.0 billion gain, net of $1.0 billion in tax expense. The transaction was intended to support the Company's focus on fueling growth initiatives through targeted investments to modernize Dell Technologies' core infrastructure and by expanding in high-priority areas, including hybrid and private cloud, edge, telecommunications solutions, and the Company's APEX offerings.

On September 1, 2020, we completed the sale of RSA Security to a consortium of investors for total cash consideration of approximately $2.082 billion, resulting in a pre-tax gain on sale of $338 million. The Company ultimately recorded a $21 million loss net of taxes. The transaction was intended to further simplify our product portfolio and corporate structure.

Prior to the divestitures, the operating results of Boomi and RSA Security were included within Other businesses and did not qualify for presentation as a discontinued operation. See Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information about these transactions.

Our products and services offerings are continually evolving in response to industry dynamics. As a result, reclassifications of certain products and services solutions in major product categories may be required. For further discussion regarding our current reportable segments, see "Results of Operations - Business Unit Results" and Note 16 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

Dell Financial Services

DFS supports our businesses by offering and arranging various financing options and services for our customers primarily in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. DFS originates, collects, and services customer receivables primarily related to the purchase or use of our product, software, and service solutions. We also arrange financing for some of our customers in various countries where DFS does not currently operate as a captive enterprise. DFS further strengthens our customer relationships through its flexible consumption models, which enable us to offer our customers the option to pay over time and, in certain cases, based on utilization, to provide them with financial flexibility to meet their changing technological requirements. The results of these operations are allocated to our segments based on the underlying product or service financed. For additional information about our financing arrangements, see Note 3 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

Strategic Investments and Acquisitions

As part of our strategy, we will continue to evaluate opportunities for strategic investments through our venture capital investment arm, Dell Technologies Capital, with a focus on emerging technology areas that are relevant to all segments of our business and that will complement our existing portfolio of solutions. Our investment areas include storage, software-defined networking, management and orchestration, security, machine learning and artificial intelligence, Big Data and analytics, cloud, edge computing, and software development operations. As of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, Dell Technologies held strategic investments of $1.5 billion and $1.4 billion, respectively.

In addition to these investments, we also may make disciplined acquisitions targeting businesses that advance our strategic objectives and accelerate our innovation agenda.

Business Trends and Challenges

COVID-19 Pandemic and Response - In March 2020, the World Health Organization ("WHO") declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic. This declaration was followed by significant governmental measures implemented in the United States and globally, including travel bans and restrictions, shelter-in-place orders, limitations and closures of non-essential businesses, and social distancing requirements in efforts to slow down and control the spread of the virus.

The health of our employees, customers, business partners, and communities remains our primary focus. During Fiscal 2021, we took numerous actions in response to COVID-19, including a swift implementation of our business continuity plans. Our crisis management team remains actively engaged to respond to changes in our environment quickly and effectively, and to ensure that our ongoing response activities are aligned with recommendations of the WHO and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and with governmental regulations. We are adjusting restrictions previously implemented as new information becomes available, governmental regulations are updated, and vaccines become more widely distributed.

In September 2021, the President of the United States signed an executive order that requires employers with U.S. Government contracts to ensure that their U.S.-based employees, contractors, and subcontractors that work on or in support of such contracts are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (subject to medical and religious exemptions). We are a covered federal contractor due to a number of our agreements. We are taking steps to comply with the executive order for federal contractors. It is currently not possible to predict the impact the executive order may have on our workforce.

Most of our employees were previously equipped with remote work capabilities over the past several years, which enabled us to quickly establish a work-from-home posture for the majority of our employees. Further, we implemented pandemic-specific protocols for our essential employees whose jobs require them to be on-site or with customers. We are deploying return-to-site processes based on ongoing assessments of local conditions by our management team, including a global policy requiring vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for persons entering a Dell site. We will continue to monitor conditions and utilize remote work practices to ensure the health and safety of our employees, customers, and business partners.

We continue to work closely with our customers and business partners to support them as they expand their own remote work solutions and contingency plans and to help them access our products and services remotely. Our agility, our breadth, and our scale has and will continue to benefit us in serving our customers and business partners during this period of accelerated digital transformation, evolution of the "do anything from anywhere" economy, and uncertainty relating to the effects of COVID-19.

Notable actions include the following:

Our global sales teams continue to successfully support our customers and partners remotely.

We are helping to address our customers' cash flow requirements by expanding our as-a-service and financing offerings.

Our close relationships and ability to connect directly with our customers through our e-commerce business have enabled us to quickly meet the immediate demands of the work- and learn-from-home environments as well as the long-term demands of in-office, remote, and hybrid workforce environments.

The strength, scale, and resiliency of our global supply chain have afforded us flexibility to manage through the significant disruption in the supply chain environment. We continue to adapt in real time to events as they unfold by applying predictive analytics to model a variety of outcomes to respond quickly to the changing environment. We continue to optimize our global supply chain footprint to maximize factory uptime, for both Dell Technologies and our suppliers, by working through various local governmental regulations and mandates and by establishing robust safety measures to protect the health and safety of our essential team members.

We continue to drive innovation and excellence in engineering with a largely remote workforce. Engineers and product teams have delivered several critical solutions, including cloud updates, key client product refreshes, PowerStore midrange storage and software, and recently announced IT as-a-Service and cloud offerings within the APEX portfolio.

During Fiscal 2021, we took precautionary measures to increase our cash position and preserve financial flexibility. We also took a series of prudent steps to manage expenses and preserve liquidity that included, among others, global hiring limitations, a reduction in consulting, contractor and facilities-related costs, global travel restrictions, and a temporary suspension of the Dell 401(k) match program for U.S. employees. Effective January 1, 2021, we resumed the Dell 401(k) match program, and in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2021, we began to reinstate selected employee-related compensation benefits. We will continue to invest in long-term projects to support our growth and innovation initiatives, while focusing on operating expense controls in certain areas of the business. All of these actions are aligned with our strategy, which remains unchanged, of focusing on gaining share, integrating and innovating across the Dell Technologies portfolio, and strengthening our capital structure.

The impact of COVID-19 is accelerating digital transformation, and we continue to see opportunities to create value and grow in response to resilient demand for our IT solutionsdriven by a technology-enabled world. We will continue to actively monitor global events and pursue prudent decisions to navigate in this uncertain and ever-changing environment.

Supply Chain - Dell Technologies maintains limited-source supplier relationships for certain components because the relationships are advantageous in the areas of performance, quality, support, delivery, capacity, and price considerations.

We continue to be impacted by industry-wide constraints in the supply of limited-source components in certain product offerings as a result of the impacts of COVID-19. Further, global economic recovery has led to growth in demand that has outpaced supply, resulting in an increase in orders pending fulfillment and extended lead times for our customers for certain products.

These supply constraints coupled with increasing demand are leading to increases in component costs, which, during the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, increased in the aggregate. Component cost trends are dependent on the strength or weakness of actual end-user demand and supply dynamics, which will continue to evolve and ultimately impact the translation of the cost environment to pricing and operating results. For both ISG and CSG, we expect the overall component cost environment to remain inflationary but begin to stabilize for the remainder of Fiscal 2022. Further, we continue to experience increased freight costs for expedited shipments of components and rate increases in the freight network as capacity remains constrained. In response to these pressures, we continue to assess and take proactive steps to address our customers' demands while balancing both profitability and growth. We expect to continue navigating supply chain dynamics in to Fiscal 2023.

ISG- We expect that ISG will continue to be impacted by the changing nature of the IT infrastructure market and competitive environment.During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, ISG benefited from improvements in the macroeconomic environment that we expect will continue through the remaining three months of Fiscal 2022. With our scale and strong solutions portfolio, we believe we are well-positioned to respond to ongoing competitive dynamics. Within servers and networking, we will continue to be selective in determining whether to pursue certain large hyperscale and other server transactions. We continue to focus on customer base expansion and lifetime value of customer relationships.

The unprecedented data growth throughout all industries is generating continued demand for our storage solutions and services. Cloud native applications are expected to continue as a primary growth driver in the infrastructure market. We believe the complementary cloud solutions across our business position us to meet these demands for our customers. We benefit from offering solutions that address the emerging trends of enterprises deploying software-defined storage, hyper-converged infrastructure, and modular solutions based on server-centric architectures. These trends are changing the way customers are consuming our traditional storage offerings. We continue to expand our offerings in external storage arrays, which incorporate flexible, cloud-based functionality.

Through our research and development efforts, we are developing new solutions in this rapidly changing industry that we believe will enable us to continue to provide superior solutions to our customers. Our customer base includes a growing number of service providers, such as cloud service providers, software-as-a-service companies, consumer webtech providers, and telecommunications companies. These service providers turn to Dell Technologies for our advanced solutions that enable efficient service delivery at cloud scale. Through our collaborative, customer-focused approach to innovation, we strive to deliver new and relevant solutions and software to the market quickly and efficiently.

CSG- Our CSG offerings are an important element of our strategy, generating strong cash flow and opportunities for cross-selling of complementary solutions. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, CSG net revenue continued to be strong across product offerings, driven primarily by the global economic recovery coupled with customers seeking improved connectivity and productivity in both personal and professional environments.

While we expect that the CSG demand environment will continue to be subject to seasonal trends, we anticipate continued strong CSG demand through the remaining three months of Fiscal 2022, in line with industry demand forecasts. Competitive dynamics continue to be a factor in our CSG business and will impact pricing and operating results. We remain committed to our long-term strategy for CSG and will continue to make investments to innovate across the portfolio, while benefiting from consolidation trends that are occurring in the markets in which we compete.

Recurring Revenue and Consumption Models - Our customers are seeking new and innovative models that address how they consume our solutions. We offer options including as-a-service, utility, leases, and immediate pay models, all designed to match customers' consumption and financing preferences. Our multiyear agreements typically result in recurring revenue streams over the term of the arrangement. We continue to evolve and build momentum across our family of as-a-Service offerings as we pursue our strategy of modernizing our core business solutions, with APEX at the forefront. We expect that our flexible consumption models and as-a-service offerings through APEX will further strengthen our customer relationships and provide a foundation for growth in recurring revenue.

Macroeconomic Risks and Uncertainties- The impacts of trade protection measures, including increases in tariffs and trade barriers, and changes in government policies and international trade arrangements may affect our ability to conduct business in some non-U.S. markets. We monitor and seek to mitigate these risks with adjustments to our manufacturing, supply chain, and distribution networks.

We manage our business on a U.S. dollar basis. However, we have a large global presence, generating approximately half of our revenue by sales to customers outside of the United States during both the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021. As a result, our revenue can be, and in such periods has been, impacted by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. We utilize a comprehensive hedging strategy intended to mitigate the impact of foreign currency volatility over time, and we adjust pricing when possible to further minimize foreign currency impacts.

Key Performance Metrics

Our key performance metrics are net revenue, operating income, adjusted earnings before interest and other, net, taxes, depreciation, and amortization("adjusted EBITDA"), and cash flows from operations, which are discussed elsewhere in this management's discussion and analysis.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In this management's discussion and analysis, we use supplemental measures of our performance which are derived from our consolidated financial information but which are not presented in our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP product net revenue; non-GAAP services net revenue; non-GAAP net revenue; non-GAAP product gross margin; non-GAAP services gross margin; non-GAAP gross margin; non-GAAP operating expenses; non-GAAP operating income; non-GAAP net income; EBITDA; and adjusted EBITDA. The non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered as indicators of performance in isolation from or as a substitute for net revenue, gross margin, operating expenses, operating income, or net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis.

We use non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial information presented on a GAAP basis. Management considers these non-GAAP measures in evaluating our operating trends and performance. Moreover, we believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide our stakeholders with useful and transparent information to help them evaluate our operating results by facilitating an enhanced understanding of our operating performance and enabling them to make more meaningful period to period comparisons. There are limitations to the use of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this report. Our non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

Non-GAAP product net revenue, non-GAAP services net revenue, non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP product gross margin, non-GAAP services gross margin, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP net income, as defined by us, exclude amortization of intangible assets, the impact of purchase accounting, transaction-related expenses and gains, stock-based compensation expense, other corporate expenses and, for non-GAAP net income, fair value adjustments on equity investments and an aggregate adjustment for income taxes. As the excluded items have a material impact on our financial results, our management compensates for this limitation by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using non-GAAP financial measures supplementally or for projections when comparable GAAP financial measures are not available.

Reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented below. We encourage you to review the reconciliations in conjunction with the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures for each of the periods presented. The discussion below includes information on each of the excluded items as well as our reasons for excluding them from our non-GAAP results. In future fiscal periods, we may exclude such items and may incur income and expenses similar to these excluded items. Accordingly, the exclusion of these items and other similar items in our non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent, or unusual.
The following is a summary of the items excluded from the most comparable GAAP financial measures to calculate our non-GAAP financial measures:

Amortization of Intangible Assets - Amortization of intangible assets primarily consists of amortization of customer relationships, developed technology, and trade names. In connection with our acquisition by merger of EMC on September 7, 2016, referred to as the EMC merger transaction, and the acquisition of Dell Inc. by Dell Technologies Inc. on October 29, 2013, referred to as the going-private transaction, all of the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities of EMC and Dell, respectively, were accounted for and recognized at fair value on the transaction dates. Accordingly, for the periods presented, amortization of intangible assets primarily represents amortization associated with intangible assets recognized in connection with the EMC merger transaction and the going-private transaction. Amortization charges for purchased intangible assets are significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of our acquisitions, and these charges may vary in amount from period to period. We exclude these charges for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures presented below to facilitate an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provide more meaningful period to period comparisons.

Impact of Purchase Accounting - The impact of purchase accounting includes purchase accounting adjustments related to the EMC merger transaction and, to a lesser extent, the going-private transaction, recorded under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with the accounting guidance for business combinations. This guidance prescribes that the purchase price be allocated to assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on the estimated fair value of such assets and liabilities on the date of the transaction. Accordingly, all of the assets and liabilities acquired in the EMC merger transaction and the going-private transaction were accounted for and recognized at fair value as of the respective

Table of Contents
transaction dates, and the fair value adjustments are being amortized over the estimated useful lives in the periods following the transactions. The fair value adjustments primarily relate to deferred revenue and property, plant, and equipment. Although the purchase accounting adjustments and related amortization of those adjustments are reflected in our GAAP results, we evaluate the operating results of the underlying businesses on a non-GAAP basis, after removing such adjustments. We believe that excluding the impact of purchase accounting for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures presented below facilitates an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provides more meaningful period to period comparisons.

Transaction-related Expenses and Gains- Transaction-related expenses typically consist of acquisition, integration, and divestiture-related costs and are expensed as incurred. These expenses primarily represent costs for legal, banking, consulting, and advisory services. From time to time, this category also may include transaction-related gains on divestitures of businesses or asset sales. During the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, we recognized a gain of $4.0 billion on the sale of Boomi, while during the third quarter of Fiscal 2021, we recognized a gain of $338 million on the sale of RSA Security. We exclude these items for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures presented below to facilitate an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provide more meaningful period to period comparisons.

Stock-based Compensation Expense - Stock-based compensation expense consists of equity awards granted based on the estimated fair value of those awards at grant date. We estimate the fair value of service-based stock options using the Black-Scholes valuation model. To estimate the fair value of performance-based awards containing a market condition, we use the Monte Carlo valuation model. For all other share-based awards, the fair value is based on the closing price of the Class C Common Stock as reported on the NYSE on the date of grant. Although stock-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation of our employees and executives, the fair value of the stock-based awards may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the vesting or future exercise of the related stock-based awards. We believe that excluding stock-based compensation expense for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures presented below facilitates an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provides more meaningful period to period comparisons.

Other Corporate Expenses - Other corporate expenses consist primarily of impairment charges, incentive charges related to equity investments, severance, facilities action, and other costs. Severance costs are primarily related to severance and benefits for employees terminated pursuant to cost savings initiatives. We continue to optimize our facilities footprint and may incur additional costs as we seek opportunities for operational efficiencies. Other corporate expenses vary from period to period and are significantly impacted by the timing and nature of these events. Therefore, although we may incur these types of expenses in the future, we believe that eliminating these charges for purposes of calculating the non-GAAP financial measures presented below facilitates an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provides more meaningful period to period comparisons.

Fair Value Adjustments on Equity Investments- Fair value adjustments on equity investments primarily consist of the gain (loss) on our strategic investment portfolio, which includes the recurring fair value adjustments of investments in publicly-traded companies, as well as those in privately-held companies, which are adjusted for observable price changes and, to a lesser extent, any potential impairments. Given the volatility in the ongoing adjustments to the valuation of these strategic investments, we believe that excluding these gains and losses for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income presented below facilitates an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provides more meaningful period to period comparisons.

Aggregate Adjustment for Income Taxes- The aggregate adjustment for income taxes is the estimated combined income tax effect for the adjustments described above, as well as an adjustment for discrete tax items. Due to the variability in recognition of discrete tax items from period to period, we believe that excluding these benefits or charges for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income facilitates an enhanced understanding of our current operating performance and provides more meaningful period to period comparisons. The tax effects for the adjustments described above are determined based on the tax jurisdictions in which the items were incurred. See Note 10 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for additional information about our income taxes.

In addition to the above measures, we also use EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA to provide additional information for evaluation of our operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA excludes purchase accounting adjustments, stock-based compensation expense, transaction-related expenses, and other corporate expenses. Due to the nature of these transactions, we believe that it is appropriate to exclude these items.

As is the case with the non-GAAP measures presented above, users should consider the limitations of using EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, including the fact that those measures do not provide a complete measure of our operating performance. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA do not purport to be alternatives to net income (loss) as measures of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. In particular, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA are not intended to be a measure of free cash flow available for management's discretionary use, as these measures do not consider certain cash requirements, such as working capital needs, capital expenditures, contractual commitments, interest payments, tax payments, and other debt service requirements.

Overview

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, both net revenue and non-GAAP net revenue increased 21% and 16%, respectively. These increases were due primarily to growth in net revenue for CSG and, to a lesser extent, increases in net revenue for ISG and VMware. CSG net revenue benefited primarily from increased sales of commercial and consumer offerings, driven by strong demand as a result of the global economic recovery coupled with customers seeking improved connectivity and productivity. ISG net revenue continued to benefit from overall improvements in the macroeconomic environment and a shift towards investment in IT infrastructure. VMware net revenue increased primarily due to continued growth in sales of subscriptions and software-as-a-service ("SaaS") offerings.

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, our operating income increased 19% and 38%, respectively, and our non-GAAP operating income increased 5% and 12%, respectively. The increases were primarily due to increases in operating income for CSG, driven primarily by our commercial offerings and, to a lesser extent, our consumer offerings. Operating income also benefited from decreases in amortization of intangible assets during both Fiscal 2022 periods presented.

Our operating income as a percentage of net revenue remained flat at 4.8% and increased 80 basis points to 5.2% for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. The increase in our operating income as a percentage of net revenue for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was driven primarily by a decrease in amortization of intangible assets. Our non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of net revenue decreased 150 basis points to 10.1% and 40 basis points to 10.6% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. The decreases in our non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of net revenue were driven primarily by declines in gross margin as a percentage of net revenue, principally due to supply chain challenges and the inflationary cost environment coupled with a shift in mix towards CSG offerings.

Cash provided by operating activities was $7.2 billion and $5.5 billion for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, respectively. The increase in operating cash flows during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was driven by strong growth coupled with favorable working capital dynamics, compared to unfavorable working capital impacts during the first nine months of Fiscal 2021. See "Market Conditions, Liquidity, and Capital Commitments" for further information on our cash flow metrics.

We continue to see opportunities to create value and grow in response to resilient demand for our IT solutions driven by a technology-enabled world. We have demonstrated our ability to adjust as needed to changing market conditions with complementary solutions across all segments of our business, an agile workforce, and the strength of our global supply chain. As we continue to innovate and modernize our core offerings, we believe that Dell Technologies is well-positioned for long-term profitable growth.

Net Revenue

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, both net revenue and non-GAAP net revenue increased 21% and 16%, respectively, driven primarily by increases in net revenue for CSG and, to a lesser extent, increases in net revenue for ISG and VMware. See "Business Unit Results" for further information.

Product Net Revenue- Product net revenue includes revenue from the sale of hardware products and software licenses. During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, both product net revenue and non-GAAP product net revenue increased 24% and 18%, respectively, driven primarily by growth in CSG product net revenue and, to a lesser extent, ISG product net revenue. CSG product net revenue increased during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 primarily due to increases in units sold of both commercial and consumer product offerings as a result of continued strength in the demand environment and, to a lesser extent, an increase in average selling price of our commercial offerings. During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, ISG product net revenue increased due to increased sales volumes of our server offerings. Additionally, we experienced an increase in average selling price of our server offerings during the third quarter only.

Services Net Revenue - Services net revenue includes revenue from our services offerings and support services related to hardware products and software licenses. During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, services net revenue increased 12% and 11%, respectively. Non-GAAP services net revenue increased 11% during both Fiscal 2022 periods presented. These increases were driven primarily by growth in CSG services net revenue and, to a lesser extent, growth in both VMware and ISG services net revenue. CSG services net revenue increases were primarily attributable to growth within CSG hardware and software support and maintenance, while ISG services net revenue increased primarily as a result of growth within hardware support services. VMware services net revenue increases were primarily driven by growth within VMware subscriptions and SaaS offerings. A substantial portion of services net revenue is derived from offerings that have been deferred over a period of time, and, as a result, reported services net revenue growth rates will be different than reported product net revenue growth rates.

From a geographical perspective, net revenue generated by sales to customers in all regions increased during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, driven by strong CSG performance.

Gross Margin

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, our gross margin increased 11% to $8.1 billion and 11% to $23.7 billion, respectively. Our non-GAAP gross margin increased 8% to $8.4 billion and 9% to $24.8 billion during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. Both gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin benefited from an increase in gross margin for CSG and, to a lesser extent, increases for both VMware and ISG. Gross margin and non-GAAP gross margin increases during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 were partially offset by a decrease in gross margin for other businesses as a result of the impact of the divestiture of RSA Security during the third quarter of Fiscal 2021.

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, our gross margin percentage decreased 250 basis points to 28.4% and 120 basis points to 30.0%, respectively. The decrease in gross margin percentage during the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 was primarily due to unfavorable impacts in gross margin percentage across CSG, VMware, and ISG, driven in part by supply chain challenges and the inflationary cost environment, coupled with a shift in mix towards CSG. These decreases were partially offset by a decrease in amortization of intangible assets. For the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, the decrease in gross margin percentage was driven by the same unfavorable impacts within VMware and ISG as well as a shift in mix towards CSG, partially offset by an increase in gross margin percentage for CSG and a decrease in amortization of intangible assets. Non-GAAP gross margin percentage decreased 340 basis points to 29.6% and 200 basis points to 31.3% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively, driven by the same ISG, CSG, and VMware dynamics discussed above.

Products- During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, product gross margin increased 12% to $4.0 billion and 16% to $11.8 billion, respectively. The increases in product gross margin were primarily driven by growth in CSG product gross margin coupled with a decrease in amortization of intangible assets. During the same Fiscal 2022 periods, non-GAAP product gross margin increased 8% to $4.3 billion and 12% to $12.7 billion, respectively. The increases in non-GAAP product gross margin were primarily driven by an increase in CSG product gross margin.

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, product gross margin percentage decreased 200 basis points to 18.5% and 30 basis points to 20.1%, respectively. For the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, the decrease in product gross margin percentage was driven primarily by a decrease in CSG product gross margin percentage coupled with a shift in mix towards CSG, the effects of which were partially offset by a decrease in amortization of intangible assets. The decrease in product gross margin percentage during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was driven primarily by a shift in product mix towards CSG. During the same Fiscal 2022 periods, non-GAAP product gross margin percentage decreased 290 basis points to 19.9% and 120 basis points to 21.5%, respectively. The decreases in non-GAAP product gross margin percentage for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 were driven by the same CSG dynamics discussed above.

Services- During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, services gross margin increased 10% to $4.1 billion and 7% to $11.9 billion, respectively. The increases in services gross margin were primarily driven by VMware and CSG and, to a lesser extent, ISG. VMware services gross margin increased as a result of growth within subscription and SaaS offerings while CSG services gross margin increased due to growth in hardware support and maintenance. During the same Fiscal 2022 periods, non-GAAP services gross margin increased 8% to $4.1 billion and 6% to $12.1 billion, respectively. The changes were driven by the same dynamics discussed above.

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, services gross margin percentage decreased 90 basis points to 59.4% and 220 basis points to 59.3%, respectively. During the same Fiscal 2022 periods, non-GAAP services gross margin percentage decreased170 basis points to 60.1% and 260 basis points to 60.1%, respectively. For the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, the decreases were as a result of declines in services gross margin percentage for VMware and ISG coupled with a shift in mix towards CSG, partially offset by an increase in services gross margin percentage for CSG. The declines for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 were driven by a shift in mix towards CSG coupled with decreases in services gross margin percentage for CSG, VMware, and ISG.

Vendor Programs and Settlements

Our gross margin is affected by our ability to achieve competitive pricing with our vendors and contract manufacturers, including through our negotiation of a variety of vendor rebate programs to achieve lower net costs for the various components we include in our products. Under these programs, vendors provide us with rebates or other discounts from the list prices for the components, which are generally elements of their pricing strategy. We account for vendor rebates and other discounts as a reduction in cost of net revenue. We manage our costs on a total net cost basis, which includes supplier list prices reduced by vendor rebates and other discounts.

The terms and conditions of our vendor rebate programs are largely based on product volumes and are generally negotiated either at the beginning of the annual or quarterly period, depending on the program. The timing and amount of vendor rebates and other discounts we receive under the programs may vary from period to period, reflecting changes in the competitive environment. We monitor our component costs and seek to address the effects of any changes to terms that might arise under our vendor rebate programs. Our gross margins for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021 were not materially affected by any changes to the terms of our vendor rebate programs, as the amounts we received under these programs were generally stable relative to our total net cost. We are not aware of any significant changes to vendor pricing or rebate programs that may impact our results in the near term.

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, operating expenses increased 9% and 7%, respectively. Non-GAAP operating expenses increased 10% and 8% for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. These increases were primarily driven by employee-related expenses as a result of performance-based compensation associated with strong operating results, coupled with the reintroduction of expenses that were temporarily reduced during Fiscal 2021 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Selling, General, and Administrative- Selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased 11% and 7%, respectively, during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022. The increases were primarily due to an increase in employee-related compensation and benefits expense as well as an increase in outside services expense incurred in connection with our transformational initiatives, primarily the VMware Spin-off.

Research and Development- Research and development ("R&D") expenses are primarily composed of personnel-related expenses incurred to develop the software that powers our solutions. R&D expenses grew 4% and 8% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. As a percentage of net revenue, R&D expenses were approximately 5.0% and 5.8% for the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, respectively, and 5.3% and 5.7% for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, respectively. The decreases in R&D expenses as a percentage of net revenue were attributable to revenue growth that outpaced the scale of R&D investments. We intend to continue to support R&D initiatives to innovate and introduce new and enhanced solutions into the market.

We continue to make targeted investments designed to enable growth, marketing, and R&D, while balancing these investments with our efforts to drive cost efficiencies in the business. We also expect to continue to make investments in support of our own digital transformation to modernize and streamline our IT operations.

Operating Income

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, our operating income increased 19% and 38% to $1.3 billion and $4.1 billion, respectively, and our non-GAAP operating income increased 5% and 12% to $2.9 billion and $8.4 billion, respectively. The increases were primarily due to growth in operating income for CSG, driven primarily by our commercial offerings and, to a lesser extent, our consumer offerings. Operating income during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 also benefited from a decrease in amortization of intangible assets.

Our operating income as a percentage of net revenue remained flat at 4.8% and increased 80 basis points to 5.2% for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022. The increase in our operating income as a percentage of net revenue for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was driven primarily by a decrease in amortization of intangible assets. Our non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of net revenue decreased 150 basis points to 10.1% and 40 basis points to 10.6% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. The decreases in our non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of net revenue were driven primarily by declines in gross margin as a percentage of net revenue, principally due to supply chain challenges and the inflationary cost environment coupled with a shift in mix towards CSG offerings.

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, the change in interest and other, net was favorable by $3.2 billion and $3.6 billion, respectively. The favorability in both periods was primarily driven by the pre-tax gain of $4.0 billion on the sale of Boomi and, to a lesser extent, a decrease in interest expense due to debt paydowns. The favorability was partially offset by a decrease in net gains on our strategic investments portfolio. For further details on the Boomi divestiture, see Note 1 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

Income tax expense (benefit) $ 897 $ 521 $ 1,079 $ (124)
Effective income tax rate 18.7 % 37.2 % 15.9 % -6.1 %

For the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, our effective income tax rate was 18.7% and 37.2%, respectively. For the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, our effective income tax rate was 15.9% and -6.1%, respectively. For the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, our effective income tax rate includes tax expense of $1.0 billion related to the divestiture of Boomi during the third quarter of Fiscal 2022. In comparison, for the first nine months of Fiscal 2021, our effective income tax rate included discrete tax benefits of $746 million related to an audit settlement that was recorded in the second quarter of Fiscal 2021 and tax expense of $359 millionrelated to the divestiture of RSA Security during the third quarter of Fiscal 2021. Our effective income tax rates are also impacted by a change in our jurisdictional mix of income and lower overall taxes on foreign operations.

Our effective income tax rate can fluctuate depending on the geographic distribution of our worldwide earnings, as our foreign earnings are generally taxed at lower rates than in the United States. The differences between our effective income tax rate and the U.S. federal statutory rate of 21% principally result from the geographical distribution of income, differences between the book and tax treatment of certain items, and the discrete tax items discussed above. In certain jurisdictions, our tax rate is significantly less than the applicable statutory rate as a result of tax holidays. The majority of our foreign income that is subject to these tax holidays and lower tax rates is attributable to Singapore and China. A significant portion of these income tax benefits relates to a tax holiday that will be effective until January 31, 2029. Our other tax holidays will expire in whole or in part during Fiscal 2022 through Fiscal 2030. Many of these tax holidays and reduced tax rates may be extended when certain conditions are met or may be terminated early if certain conditions are not met. As of October 29, 2021, we were not aware of any matters of non-compliance related to these tax holidays.

For further discussion regarding tax matters, including the status of income tax audits, see Note 10 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

Net Income

During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, net income increased 341% to $3.9 billion and 164% to $5.7 billion, respectively.The increases for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 were primarily attributable to a favorable change in interest and other, net, as result of the gain on sale of Boomi and, to a lesser extent, an increase in operating income. Non-GAAP net income increased 18% to $2.0 billion and 28% to $5.7 billion during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. The increases in non-GAAP net income during both the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 were primarily attributable to an increase in non-GAAP operating income and a reduction in interest expense during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, partially offset by an increase in tax expense.

Non-controlling Interests

Net income attributable to non-controlling interests consists of net income or loss attributable to our non-controlling interests in VMware, Inc. and Secureworks. During the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, net income attributable to non-controlling interests was $45 million and $49 million, respectively. The decrease in net income attributable to non-controlling interests during the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 was primarily due to a decrease in net income attributable to our non-controlling interest in VMware, Inc.

During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, net income attributable to non-controlling interests was $145 million and $139 million, respectively. The increase in net income attributable to non-controlling interests during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was primarily due to an increase in net income attributable to our non-controlling interest in VMware, Inc. For more information about our non-controlling interests, see Note 12 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report.

Net Income Attributable to Dell Technologies Inc.

Net income attributable to Dell Technologies Inc. represents net income and an adjustment for non-controlling interests. During the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, net income attributable to Dell Technologies Inc. was $3.8 billion and $0.8 billion, respectively. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, net income attributable to Dell Technologies Inc. was $5.6 billion and $2.0 billion, respectively. The increase in net income attributable to Dell Technologies Inc. during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was primarily attributable to increases in net income for both periods.

% of segment net revenue 10.6 % 11.0 % 10.7 % 10.9 %

Net Revenue - During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, ISG net revenue increased 5% and 4%, respectively. These increases were primarily driven by sales of servers and networking attributable to improvements in the macroeconomic environment and a shift towards investment in IT infrastructure. In comparison, net revenue during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2021 was affected by a weaker demand environment as a result of COVID-19, when customers shifted their investments toward remote work and business continuity solutions.

Net revenue from sales of servers and networking increased 9% and 8% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively, as a result of an increase in units sold due to continued demand for our PowerEdge servers. During the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, the increase in net revenue was further driven by an increase in average selling price for our PowerEdge servers as we managed pricing in response to the cost environment.

Storage revenue increased 1% and remained flat during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively. We benefited from growth within hyper-converged infrastructure which was offset by a decline in other storage offerings. To a lesser extent, during the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, we also benefited from growth within our data protection offerings. Overall, we have experienced growth in demand for the majority of our storage offerings, most notably within midrange storage, that we expect will benefit net revenue in future periods.

ISG customers are seeking new and innovative models that address how they consume our solutions. We offer options including as-a-service, utility, leases, and immediate pay models, all designed to match customers' consumption and financing preferences. Our multiyear agreements typically result in recurring revenue streams over the term of the arrangement. We expect that our flexible consumption models and as-a-service offerings through APEX will further strengthen our customer relationships and provide a foundation for growth in recurring revenue.

From a geographical perspective, net revenue attributable to ISG increased in all regions during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022.

Operating Income - During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, ISG operating income as a percentage of net revenue decreased 40 basis points to 10.6% and 20 basis points to 10.7%, respectively. The declines in operating income as a percentage of net revenue during both Fiscal 2022 periods were driven by declines in ISG gross margin percentage. ISG gross margin percentage decreased as a result of a shift in mix within ISG towards servers and networking coupled with a decline in gross margin percentage for storage, in part due to a shift in mix of storage offerings sold. The decrease in gross margin percentage was partially offset by a decrease in operating expense as a percentage of net revenue.

Net Revenue - During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, CSG net revenue increased 35% and 28%, respectively, driven primarily by increases in units sold across the majority of product offerings as a result of continued strong demand. Increases in average selling price, principally within our commercial offerings, also contributed to revenue growth.

Commercial revenue increased 40% and 28% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively, primarily due to an increase in sales of commercial desktops and notebooks driven by continued strong demand as customers invest in in-office, remote, and hybrid workforce environments. Increases in average selling price also contributed to revenue growth, most notably in the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, as we continue to navigate through supply chain shortages and managed pricing in response to the current inflationary cost environment.

Consumer revenue increased 21% and 25% during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, respectively, primarily due to an increase in units sold as a result of strong demand across the majority of consumer product offerings.

From a geographical perspective, net revenue attributable to CSG increased across all regions during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022.

Operating Income -During the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, CSG operating income as a percentage of net revenue decreased 130 basis points to 6.9%. The decrease was primarily attributable to declines in both commercial and consumer gross margin percentages which were impacted by heightened supply chain challenges, logistics costs, and the inflationary component cost environment. The gross margin percentage decreases were partially offset by a shift in mix towards commercial product offerings and a decrease in operating expenses as a percentage of net revenue.

During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, CSG operating income as a percentage of net revenue increased 60 basis points to 7.3%. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in gross margin percentage, principally within our consumer offerings, coupled with a decrease in operating expenses as a percentage of net revenue. The increase in gross margin percentage was primarily driven by disciplined pricing as we managed through both cost and supply chain challenges discussed above. These challenges were more unfavorable to the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 as compared to the first half of Fiscal 2022.

Net Revenue -VMware net revenue primarily consists of revenue from the sale of software licenses under perpetual licenses and subscription and SaaS offerings, as well as related software maintenance services, support, training, consulting services, and hosted services. VMware net revenue for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 increased 10% and 9%, respectively, primarily due to growth in sales of subscription and SaaS offerings, driven by increased demand for cloud offerings. Both license revenue and software maintenance revenue also increased to a lesser extent, with the latter continuing to benefit from maintenance contracts sold in previous periods.

VMware net revenue for the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 increased in both the United States and internationally.

Operating Income - During the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022, VMware operating income as a percentage of net revenue decreased 260 basis points to 26.3% and 220 basis points to 27.1%, respectively. These decreases were due to a decline in VMware gross margin percentage and an increase in operating expense as a percentage of net revenue. VMware gross margin percentage declined in part due to a transition towards subscription and SaaS offerings. Operating expenses increased as a result of higher employee compensation expense primarily attributable to investments in key R&D initiatives, coupled with the reintroduction of expenses that were temporarily reduced in Fiscal 2021.

Our accounts receivable, net, was $14.2 billion and $12.8 billion as of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, respectively. We maintain an allowance for expected credit losses to cover receivables that may be deemed uncollectible. The allowance for expected credit losses is an estimate based on an analysis of historical loss experience, current receivables aging, management's assessment of current conditions and reasonable and supportable expectation of future conditions, and specific identifiable customer accounts that are deemed at risk. Given this uncertainty, our allowance for expected credit losses in future periods may vary from our current estimates. As of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, the allowance for expected credit losses was $100 million and $104 million, respectively. Based on our assessment, we believe that we are adequately reserved for expected credit losses. We will continue to monitor the aging of our accounts receivable and take actions, where necessary, to reduce our exposure to credit losses.

Dell Financial Services

DFS supports Dell Technologies by offering and arranging various financing options and services for our customers globally, including through captive financing operations in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. DFS originates, collects, and services customer receivables primarily related to the purchase of our product, software, and service solutions. DFS further strengthens our customer relationships through its flexible consumption models, provided through APEX, which enable us to offer our customers the option to pay over time and, in certain cases, based on utilization, to provide them with financial flexibility to meet their changing technological requirements. New financing originations were $2.0 billion and $2.1 billion for the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, respectively, and $5.8 billion and $6.5 billion for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, respectively. We experienced a decline in new financing originations during Fiscal 2022 as more customers leveraged financing during Fiscal 2021 in the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.

DFS leases are classified as sales-type leases, direct financing leases, or operating leases. Amounts due from lessees under sales-type leases or direct financing leases are recorded as part of financing receivables, with interest income recognized over the contract term. On commencement of sales-type leases, we typically qualify for up-front revenue recognition. On originations of operating leases, we record equipment under operating leases, classified as property, plant, and equipment, and recognize rental revenue and depreciation expense, classified as cost of net revenue, over the contract term. Direct financing leases are immaterial. Leases that commenced prior to the effective date of the current lease accounting standard continue to be accounted for under previous lease accounting guidance.

As of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, our financing receivables, net were $10.2 billion and $10.5 billion, respectively. We maintain an allowance to cover expected financing receivable credit losses and evaluate credit loss expectations based on our total portfolio. Our allowance for expected credit losses in future periods may vary from our current estimates. For the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, the principal charge-off rate for our financing receivables portfolio was 1.1% and 0.7%, respectively. For the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, the principal charge-off rate for our total portfolio was 0.7% and 0.9%, respectively. The credit quality of our financing receivables has improved in recent years due to an overall improvement in the credit environment and as the mix of high-quality commercial accounts in our portfolio has continued to increase. We continue to monitor broader economic indicators and their potential impact on future loss performance. We have an extensive process to manage our exposure to customer credit risk, including active management of credit lines and our collection activities. We also sell selected fixed-term financing receivables without recourse to unrelated third parties on a periodic basis, primarily to manage certain concentrations of customer credit exposure. Based on our assessment of the customer financing receivables, we believe that we are adequately reserved.

We retain a residual interest in equipment leased under our fixed-term lease programs. As of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, the residual interest recorded as part of financing receivables was $265 million and $424 million, respectively. The amount of the residual interest is established at the inception of the lease based upon estimates of the value of the equipment at the end of the lease term using historical studies, industry data, and future value-at-risk demand valuation methods. We assess the carrying amount of our recorded residual values for expected losses. Generally, expected losses as a result of residual value risk on equipment under lease are not considered to be significant primarily because of the existence of a secondary market with respect to the equipment. The lease agreement also clearly defines applicable return conditions and remedies for non-compliance to ensure that the leased equipment will be in good operating condition upon return. Model changes and updates, as well as market strength and product acceptance, are monitored, and adjustments are made to residual values in accordance with the significance of any such changes. To mitigate our exposure, we work closely with customers and dealers to manage the sale of returned assets. No material expected losses were recorded related to residual assets during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021.

As of October 29, 2021 and January 29, 2021, equipment under operating leases, net was $1.6 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively. Based on triggering events, we assess the carrying amount of the equipment under operating leases recorded for impairment. No material impairment losses were recorded related to such equipment during the third quarter and first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021.

DFS offerings are initially funded through cash on hand at the time of origination, most of which is subsequently replaced with third-party financing. For DFS offerings which qualify as sales-type leases, the initial funding of financing receivables is reflected as an impact to cash flows from operations, and is largely subsequently offset by cash proceeds from financing. For DFS operating leases, which have increased under the current lease standard, the initial funding is classified as a capital expenditure and reflected as an impact to cash flows used in investing activities.

See Note 3 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for additional information about our financing receivables and the associated allowances, and the equipment under operating leases.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of October 29, 2021, we had no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

MARKET CONDITIONS, LIQUIDITY, AND CAPITAL COMMITMENTS

Market Conditions

We regularly monitor economic conditions and associated impacts on the financial markets and our business. We consistently evaluate the financial health of our supplier base, carefully manage customer credit, diversify counterparty risk, and monitor the concentration risk of our cash and cash equivalents balances globally. We routinely monitor our financial exposure to borrowers and counterparties.

We monitor credit risk associated with our financial counterparties using various market credit risk indicators such as credit ratings issued by nationally recognized credit rating agencies and changes in market credit default swap levels. We perform periodic evaluations of our positions with these counterparties and may limit exposure to any one counterparty in accordance with our policies. We monitor and manage these activities depending on current and expected market developments.

We use derivative instruments to hedge certain foreign currency exposures. We use forward contracts and purchased options designated as cash flow hedges to protect against the foreign currency exchange rate risks inherent in our forecasted transactions denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar. In addition, we primarily use forward contracts and may use purchased options to hedge monetary assets and liabilities denominated in a foreign currency. See Note 6 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information about our use of derivative instruments.

We are exposed to interest rate risk related to our variable-rate debt portfolio. In the normal course of business, we follow established policies and procedures to manage this risk, including monitoring of our asset and liability mix. As a result, we do not anticipate any material losses from interest rate risk.

The impact of any credit adjustments related to our use of counterparties on our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report has been immaterial.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

To support our ongoing business operations, we rely on operating cash flows as our primary source of liquidity. We monitor the efficiency of our balance sheet to ensure that we have adequate liquidity to support our business and strategic initiatives. In addition to internally generated cash, we have access to other capital sources to finance our strategic initiatives and fund growth in our financing operations. Our strategy is to deploy capital from any potential source, whether internally generated cash or debt, depending on the adequacy and availability of that source of capital and whether it can be accessed in a cost-effective manner.

The following table presents our cash and cash equivalents as well as our available borrowings as of the dates indicated:
October 29, 2021 January 29, 2021
(in millions)
Cash and cash equivalents, and available borrowings:
Cash and cash equivalents (a) $ 22,406 $ 14,201
Remaining available borrowings under revolving credit facilities (b) 5,969 5,467
Total cash, cash equivalents, and available borrowings $ 28,375 $ 19,668
____________________
(a) Of the $22.4 billion of cash and cash equivalents as of October 29, 2021, $12.5 billion was held by VMware, Inc.
(b) Of the $6.0 billion of remaining available borrowings under revolving credit facilities, $1.5 billion was attributable to the VMware Revolving Credit Facility.

Our revolving credit facilities as of October 29, 2021 consist of the Revolving Credit Facility and the VMware Revolving Credit Facility. The Revolving Credit Facility has a maximum aggregate borrowing capacity of $4.5 billion, and available borrowings under this facility are reduced by draws on the facility and outstanding letters of credit. As of October 29, 2021, there were no borrowings outstanding under the facility. Borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility are used for general corporate purposes on a short-term basis.

Table of Contents
On November 1, 2021, we entered into a new senior secured Revolving Credit Facility (the "2021 Revolving Credit Facility") to replace the old senior secured Revolving Credit Facility under the Existing Credit Agreement. The 2021 Revolving Credit Facility, which matures on November 1, 2026, provides us with revolving commitments in an aggregate principal amount of $5.0 billion for general corporate purposes and includes a letter of credit sub-facility of up to $500 million and a swing-line loan sub-facility of up to $500 million. See Note 18 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information.

The VMware Revolving Credit Facility has a maximum capacity of $1.5 billion. As of October 29, 2021, there were no outstanding borrowings under the facility. None of the net proceeds of borrowings under the VMware Revolving Credit Facility will be made available to support the operations or satisfy any corporate purposes of Dell Technologies, other than the operations and corporate purposes of VMware, Inc. and VMware, Inc.'s subsidiaries.

See Note 5 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for additional information about each of the foregoing revolving credit facilities.

We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents, together with cash that will be provided by future operations and borrowings expected to be available under our revolving credit facilities, will be sufficient over at least the next twelve months and for the foreseeable future thereafter to fund our operations, debt service requirements and maturities, capital expenditures, share repurchases, dividend payments, and other corporate needs.

Debt

The following table summarizes our outstanding debt as of the dates indicated:
October 29, 2021 Increase (decrease) January 29, 2021

Total debt, carrying value $ 47,979 $ (5) $ 47,984

During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, the outstanding principal amount of our debtremained relatively flat, primarily as a result of principal repayments of $6.5 billion offset by the issuance of $6.0 billion of VMware Notes and $0.4 billion of net DFS debt activity.


87

Table of Contents
We define core debt as the total principal amount of our debt, less DFS related debt, our Margin Loan Facility and other debt, and public subsidiary debt. Our core debt was $27.0 billion as of October 29, 2021. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, the decrease in our core debt was driven by principal repayments, including $1.1 billion principal amount of our 5.875% Senior Notes due June 2021, $1.0 billion principal amount of our 3.375% EMC Notes due June 2023, and $0.4 billion principal amount of our 4.625% Unsecured Notes due April 2021.

In connection with the VMware Spin-off executed on November 1, 2021, VMware, Inc. paid a cash dividend, pro rata, to each of the holders of VMware, Inc. common stock in an aggregate amount equal to $11.5 billion, of which Dell Technologies received $9.3 billion. Subsequent to October 29, 2021 and the completion of the transaction, the Company utilized the net proceeds from its pro rata share, as well as cash on hand, to repay $9.4 billion in outstanding principal amount of core debt. Further, in connection with the termination of the Existing Credit Agreement, which governed the Senior Secured Credit Facilities, the tangible and intangible assets that secured the First Lien Notes were released as collateral and, as such, our remaining core debt became unsecured. Additionally, on November 19, 2021, the Company issued a partial redemption notice of $1.25 billion principal amount of the 5.45% First Lien Notes due June 2023 with the repayment expected to occur on December 6, 2021.

See Note 18of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information about VMware Spin-off and debt-related activity subsequent to October 29, 2021.

As of October 29, 2021, our Margin Loan Facility and other debt was $0.4 billion and consisted only of other debt. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, we fully repaid the Margin Loan Facility in the principal amount of $4.0 billion.

DFS related debt primarily represents debt from our securitization and structured financing programs. The majority of DFS debt is non-recourse to Dell Technologies and represents borrowings under securitization programs and structured financing programs, for which our risk of loss is limited to transferred lease and loan payments and associated equipment, and under which the credit holders have no recourse to Dell Technologies.

To fund expansion of the DFS business, we balance the use of the securitization and structured financing programs with other sources of liquidity. We approximate the amount of our debt used to fund the DFS business by applying a 7:1 debt to equity ratio to the sum of our financing receivables balance and equipment under our DFS operating leases, net. The debt to equity ratio used is based on the underlying credit quality of the assets. See Note 3 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information about our DFS debt.

Public subsidiary debt represents VMware, Inc. indebtedness. VMware, Inc. and its respective subsidiaries are unrestricted subsidiaries for purposes of the core debt of Dell Technologies. Neither Dell Technologies nor any of its subsidiaries, other than VMware, Inc., is obligated to make payment on the VMware Notes. None of the net proceeds of the VMware Notes will be made available to support the operations or satisfy any corporate purposes of Dell Technologies, other than the operations and corporate purposes of VMware, Inc. and its subsidiaries.

See Note 5 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report for more information about our debt and VMware, Inc. debt.

We have made steady progress in paying down debt and we will continue to include deleveraging as an important component of our overall strategy. We have achieved an investment grade corporate family rating from three major credit rating agencies, with the final upgrade occurring subsequent to October 29, 2021.

We believe we will continue to be able to make our debt principal and interest payments, including the short-term maturities, from existing and expected sources of cash, primarily from operating cash flows. Cash used for debt principal and interest payments may also include short-term borrowings under our revolving credit facilities. Under our variable-rate debt, we could experience variations in our future interest expense from potential fluctuations in applicable reference rates, or from possible fluctuations in the level of DFS debt required to meet future demand for customer financing. We or our affiliates or their related persons, at our or their sole discretion and without public announcement, may purchase, redeem, prepay, refinance, or otherwise retire any amount of our outstanding indebtedness under the terms of such indebtedness at any time and from time to time, in open market or negotiated transactions with the holders of such indebtedness or otherwise, as appropriate market conditions exist.

Cash Flows

The following table presents a summary of our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flowsfor the periods indicated:
Nine Months Ended
October 29, 2021 October 30, 2020
(in millions)
Net change in cash from:
Operating activities $ 7,214 $ 5,530
Investing activities 2,053 26
Financing activities (1,028) (3,483)
Effect of exchange rate changes on cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash (54) (67)
Change in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash $ 8,185 $ 2,006

Operating Activities- Cash provided by operating activities was $7.2 billion for the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 compared to cash provided by operating activities of $5.5 billion for the first nine months of Fiscal 2021. The increase in operating cash flows during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 was primarily driven by strong growth. Additionally, working capital dynamics were favorable for the period primarily due to timing of purchases and payments to vendors, partially offset by higher end of quarter shipments and increased inventory as we continue to navigate the current supply chain environment. In comparison, during the first nine months of Fiscal 2021 we experienced unfavorable working capital impacts.

DFS offerings are initially funded through cash on hand at the time of origination, most of which is subsequently replaced with third-party financing. For DFS offerings which qualify as sales-type leases, the initial funding of financing receivables is reflected as an impact to cash flows from operations, and is largely subsequently offset by cash proceeds from financing activities. For DFS operating leases, which have increased under the current leasing standard, the initial funding is classified as a capital expenditure and reflected as cash flows used in investing activities. DFS new financing originations were $5.8 billion and $6.5 billion during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, respectively. As of October 29, 2021, DFS had $10.2 billion of financing receivables, net and $1.6 billion of equipment under operating leases, net.

Investing Activities-Investing activities primarily consist of cash used to fund capital expenditures for property, plant, and equipment, which includes equipment under operating leases, as well as capitalized software development costs, acquisitions and divestitures, strategic investments, and the maturities, sales, and purchases of investments. During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022, cash provided by investing activities was $2.1 billion and was primarily driven by net cash proceeds related to the divestiture of Boomi, partially offset by capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs. In comparison, cash provided by investing activities was $26 million during the first nine months of Fiscal 2021, which was primarily attributable to net cash proceeds from the divestiture of RSA Security during the the third quarter of Fiscal 2021, largely offset by capital expenditures and acquisitions of businesses.

Financing Activities- Financing activities primarily consist of the proceeds and repayments of debt, cash used to repurchase common stock, and proceeds from the issuance of common stock. Cash used in financing activities was $1.0 billion during the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and primarily consisted of debt repayments and repurchases of common stock by our public subsidiaries, partially offset by net cash proceeds from the issuance of VMware Notes and DFS debt. In comparison, cash used in financing activities of $3.5 billion during the first nine months of Fiscal 2021 primarily consisted of debt repayments and repurchases of common stock by our public subsidiaries, partially offset by cash proceeds from the issuances of multiple series of First Lien Notes and VMware Notes.

Capital Commitments

Capital Expenditures - During the first nine months of Fiscal 2022 and Fiscal 2021, we spent $2.1 billion and $1.6 billion, respectively, on property, plant, and equipment and capitalized software development costs. Product demand, product mix, and the use of contract manufacturers, as well as ongoing investments in operating and IT infrastructure and software development, influence the level and prioritization of our capital expenditures. Aggregate capital expenditures for Fiscal 2022 are currently expected to total $2.9 billion, of which approximately $1.0 billion is expected to be expended for equipment under operating leases and approximately $0.3 billion for capitalized software development costs.

Table of Contents
Repurchases of Common Stock-Effective as of September 23, 2021, our board of directors approved a stock repurchase program (the "2021 Stock Repurchase Program") under which we are authorized to use assets to repurchase up to $5 billion of shares of our Class C Common Stock with no established expiration date. As of October 29, 2021, the cumulative authorized amount remaining for stock repurchases was $5 billion. Subsequent to the third quarter of Fiscal 2022 through November 30, 2021, we repurchased approximately 3.1 million shares for approximately $173 million.

Purchase Obligations- Purchase obligations are defined as contractual obligations to purchase goods or services that are enforceable and legally binding on us. These obligations specify all significant terms, including fixed or minimum quantities to be purchased; fixed, minimum, or variable price provisions; and the approximate timing of the transaction. Purchase obligations do not include contracts that may be canceled without penalty.

We utilize several suppliers to manufacture sub-assemblies for our products. Our efficient supply chain management allows us to enter into flexible and mutually beneficial purchase arrangements with our suppliers in order to minimize inventory risk. Consistent with industry practice, we acquire raw materials or other goods and services, including product components, by issuing to suppliers authorizations to purchase based on our projected demand and manufacturing needs. These purchase orders are typically fulfilled within 30 days and are entered into during the ordinary course of business in order to establish best pricing and continuity of supply for our production.

As of October 29, 2021, purchase obligations were $5.2 billion, $0.7 billion, and $0.8 billion for the remaining three months of Fiscal 2022, and for Fiscal 2023 and Fiscal 2024 and thereafter, respectively.

Summarized Guarantor Financial Information

As discussed in Note 5 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in this report, Dell International L.L.C. and EMC Corporation (the "Issuers"), both of which are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Dell Technologies, completed private offerings of multiple series of senior secured notes issued on June 1, 2016, March 20, 2019, and April 9, 2020 (collectively, the "First Lien Notes"). On May 17, 2021, the Issuers launched an exchange offer of the outstanding First Lien Notes for registered senior secured notes with substantially similar terms (the "Exchange Notes"). In June 2021, the Issuers completed the exchange offer and issued an aggregate of $18.4 billion principal amount of Exchange Notes in exchange for the same principal amount of First Lien Notes. As of October 29, 2021, the aggregate principal amount of unregistered First Lien Notes remaining outstanding following the settlement of the exchange offer was approximately $0.1 billion.

Guarantees- The Exchange Notes are guaranteed on a joint and several unsecured basis by Dell Technologies and on a joint and several secured basis by Denali Intermediate, Inc. ("Denali Intermediate"), Dell and each of Denali Intermediate's wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries that guarantees the Issuers' Senior Credit Facility obligations (collectively, the "Guarantors"). Not all of Denali Intermediate's subsidiaries guarantee the Exchange Notes, including none of Denali Intermediate's non-wholly-owned subsidiaries, foreign subsidiaries, receivables subsidiaries and subsidiaries designated as unrestricted subsidiaries under the Senior Credit Facility (such non-guarantor subsidiaries, collectively, the "Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries"). SecureWorks Corp., Virtustream, Inc., VMware, Inc., EMC Equity Assets LLC and VMW Holdco L.L.C. (collectively, the "Unrestricted Subsidiaries") have been designated as unrestricted subsidiaries under the Senior Credit Facility and therefore do not guarantee the Exchange Notes or the Senior Credit Facility obligations. See Exhibit 22.1 filed with this report for a list of subsidiary guarantors and issuers of guaranteed securities.

The guarantees are full and unconditional, subject to certain customary release provisions. The indentures that govern the Exchange Notes provide that guarantees by subsidiaries of Denali Intermediate may be released in the event, among other things, (1) such Guarantor is sold or sells all of its assets in compliance with the applicable provisions of the indentures; (2) such Guarantor is released from its guaranty under the Senior Credit Facility, including the declaration of such subsidiary as "unrestricted" under the Senior Credit Facility; (3) the merger, amalgamation or consolidation, or liquidation, of such Guarantor; or (4) the achievement of investment grade ratings with respect to the Issuers and the Exchange Notes. In addition, all Guarantors will be released from their guarantees if the requirements for legal defeasance or covenant defeasance or to discharge the indentures have been satisfied.

Basis of Preparation of the Summarized Financial Information- The tables below are summarized financial information provided in conformity with Rule 13-01 of the SEC's Regulation S-X. The summarized financial information of the Issuers and Guarantors (collectively, the "Obligor Group") is presented on a combined basis, excluding intercompany balances and transactions between entities in the Obligor Group. To the extent material, the Obligor Group's amounts due from, amounts due to and transactions with Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries have been presented separately.

Summarized Affiliate Financial Information

The equity interests of various affiliates within Dell Technologies' consolidated group have been pledged as collateral for the Exchange Notes. Dell Technologies is therefore subject to Rule 13-02 of the SEC's Regulation S-X, which requires that summarized financial information for the affiliates whose securities are pledged as collateral (collectively, the "Affiliate Group") be provided on a combined basis to the extent such information is material and materially different than the corresponding amounts presented in the Consolidated Financial Statements of Dell Technologies. The summarized financial information for the Affiliate Group would produce results materially consistent with information presented in Dell Technologies' Consolidated Financial Statements and we have therefore not included such information in this report. In particular, the assets, liabilities, and results of operations of the Affiliate Group are not materially different than the corresponding amounts presented in the Consolidated Financial Statements of Dell Technologies, except with respect to the redeemable shares as of January 29, 2021. The redeemable shares balance was $472 million as reflected on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Financial Position included in this report, as compared to no redeemable shares reflected on the Affiliate Group balance sheet as of the respective dates.

Collateral Arrangement- The collateral ("Collateral") securing the Exchange Notes generally consists of the following, whether now owned or hereafter acquired:

100% of the equity interests of the Issuers, Dell and each Material Subsidiary (as defined in the applicable indenture) that is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Issuers and the Guarantors (which pledge, in the case of capital stock of any Foreign Subsidiary or FSHCO (each as defined in the applicable indenture), is limited to 65% of the voting capital stock and 100% of the non-voting capital stock of such Foreign Subsidiary or FSHCO); and

substantially all tangible and intangible personal property and material fee-owned real property of the Issuers and Guarantors (other than Dell Technologies) including but not limited to, accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, general intangibles (including contract rights), investment property, intellectual property, real property, intercompany notes, instruments, chattel paper and documents, letter of credit rights, commercial tort claims, and proceeds of the foregoing.

See Exhibit 22.1 filed with this report for a list of each affiliate of Dell Technologies whose security is pledged as collateral to secure the Exchange Notes. There is no trading market for the applicable affiliates' securities pledged as collateral.

92

Table of Contents

Delivery of the Collateral securing the Exchange Notes would be required in certain customary events of default, including failure to make required payments, failure to comply with covenants, and the occurrence of certain events of bankruptcy and insolvency.

The Collateral may be released in certain circumstances, including, (1) to enable the sale, transfer or other disposition of such property or assets, (2) upon the release of the guarantee of a Guarantor, (3) upon such property or asset becoming an "excluded asset" as defined in the indentures governing the Exchange Notes, (4) upon the achievement of investment grade ratings with respect to the Issuers and the Exchange Notes, and (5) to the extent the liens on the Collateral securing the Senior Credit Facility obligations are released (other than in connection with the payment in full of the Senior Credit Facility).

The Collateral does not include, and will not include, among other things, (1) a pledge of the assets or equity interests of certain subsidiaries, including the Unrestricted Subsidiaries and their respective subsidiaries, (2) any fee-owned real property with a book value of less than $150 million, (3) any commercial tort claims or letter of credit rights with an individual value of less than $50 million, (4) any "principal property" as defined in the indentures governing the Unsecured Notes and Debentures of Dell and the EMC Notes, and capital stock of any subsidiary holding "principal property" as defined in the indenture governing the Unsecured Notes and Debentures of Dell, or (5) certain excluded assets.

For quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk affecting us, see "Part II - Item 7A - Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2021.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

In connection with the preparation of this report, our management, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of October 29, 2021. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level as of October 29, 2021.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1 - LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

The information required by this item is incorporated herein by reference to the information set forth under the caption "Legal Matters" in Note 9 of the Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statementsincluded in Part I of this report.

ITEM 1A - RISK FACTORS

In addition to the other information set forth in this report, the risks discussed in "Part I - Item 1A - Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 29, 2021 could materially affect our business, operating results, financial condition, or prospects. Further, as a result of the completion of the VMware Spin-off on November 1, 2021, we are subject to the following additional risks:

Risks Related to the Spin-Off of VMware, Inc.

Our spin-off of VMware, Inc. may not achieve the intended benefits.

On November 1, 2021, as described in this report, VMware, Inc. distributed to its stockholders, including us, a special one-time cash dividend, and we distributed all of the issued and outstanding shares of VMware common stock then owned by us to the holders of record of shares of Dell Technologies as of the distribution record date (the "VMware Spin-off"). Upon completion of the VMware Spin-off, the businesses of VMware, Inc. were separated from our remaining businesses, and we and VMware, Inc. entered into various agreements that will govern our future relationship. Among those agreements, a commercial framework agreement provides a framework under which we and VMware, Inc. will continue our strategic relationship, particularly with respect to projects we and VMware, Inc. believe have the potential to accelerate the growth of the industry, product, service, or platform that may provide one or both of our companies with a strategic market opportunity. The VMware Spin-off may not provide the benefits that we intend, including the benefits we seek from a continuation of our strategic relationship with VMware, Inc. under the commercial framework and other arrangements.

There is the potential for business disruption and significant separation costs. Planning and executing the VMware Spin-off has required significant additional time, effort, and expense. The VMware Spin-off could cause our customers to delay or defer decisions to purchase products or renew contracts, or to end their relationships. Any of these factors could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or the price of our Class C Common Stock. In addition, the combined value of the common stock of the two companies held by our stockholders may not be equal to or greater than what the value of our common stock alone would have been had the proposed VMware Spin-off not occurred.

The risks described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, our subsequent SEC reports, and other risks described above are not the only risks facing us. There are additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we currently deem to be immaterial that also may materially adversely affect our business, operating results, financial condition, or prospects.

ITEM 2 - UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS

Sales of Unregistered Securities

During the third quarter of Fiscal 2022, we issued to employees an aggregate of 2,019 shares of the Class C Common Stock for an immaterial amount pursuant to exercises of stock options granted under the Dell Inc. Amended and Restated 2002 Long-Term Incentive Plan. The foregoing transactions were affected without registration in reliance on the exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 afforded by Rule 701 thereunder as transactions pursuant to compensatory benefit plans or contracts relating to compensation as provided under such rule.

During October 2021, we issued 363,636 shares of Class C Common Stock to a stockholder upon the conversion of the same number of shares of our Class A Common Stock held by such stockholder. The issuance of the Class C Common Stock in this transaction was made in reliance on the exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 afforded by Section 3(a)(9) thereof. No commission or other remuneration was paid or given directly or indirectly for soliciting the exchange of these securities.

ITEM 5 - OTHER INFORMATION

Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012

Set forth below is a description of matters reported by us pursuant to Section 219 of the Iran Threat Reduction and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 and Section 13(r) of the Exchange Act. Concurrently with the filing of this quarterly report, we are filing a notice pursuant to Section 13(r) of the Exchange Act that such matters have been disclosed in this quarterly report.

On March 2, 2021, the U.S. government designated the Russian Federal Security Service (the "FSB") as a blocked party under Executive Order 13382. On the same day, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control issued General License No. 1B (the "OFAC General License"), which generally authorizes U.S. companies to engage in certain licensing, permitting, certification, notification and related transactions with the FSB to the extent such activities are required for the importation, distribution, or use of information technology products in the Russian Federation.

As permitted under the OFAC General License, our subsidiary Dell LLC and other subsidiaries periodically file notifications with the FSB in connection with the importation and distribution of our products in the Russian Federation. During our fiscal quarter ended October 29, 2021, Dell LLC filed notifications with the FSB. No payments were issued or received, and no gross revenue or net profits were generated, in connection with these filing activities. Dell Technologies and its subsidiaries do not sell products or provide services to the FSB. To the extent permitted by applicable law, including by the OFAC General License, we expect to continue to file notifications with the FSB to qualify our products for importation and distribution in the Russian Federation.
