Dell, the biggest PC maker by revenue, is expected to slash its financial partners by 50 percent.
The layoffs are part of a restructuring plan announced in October that includes cutting about $1.4 billion from its financials.
Dell’s chief financial officer, John Koval, said on a call with analysts Wednesday that he expects to announce more details of the plan in the coming weeks.
The company said it will invest about $250 million in new technology and R&D.
The move will also allow Dell to reduce its debt by $500 million.
Dell said it would cut about 6,000 jobs by the end of the year, a drop of about 25 percent from last year’s total cut of more than 20,000.
