Icahn Enterprises Official Statement

Carl Icahn

Icahn Enterprises Official Statement 10/5/23 – Icahn Enterprises L.P. (Nasdaq: IEP) (“IEP” or the “Company”) today issued the following statement in response to a short seller’s misleading and self-serving report published on May 2, 2023:

Chairman of the Board, Carl C. Icahn, stated: “Hindenburg Research, founded by Nathan Anderson, would be more aptly named Blitzkrieg Research given its tactics of wantonly destroying property and harming innocent civilians. Mr. Anderson’s modus operandi is to launch disinformation campaigns to distort companies’ images, damage their reputations and bleed the hard-earned savings of individual investors. But, unlike many of its victims, we will not stand by idly. We intend to take all appropriate steps to protect our unitholders and fight back.

“We believe that the greatest paradigm for investment success is activism. We have a long-held belief that at far too many companies today there is no real corporate governance and therefore no accountability and, as a result, companies are not nearly as productive as they should be. The failure of our system presents an opportunity for activists, like us, who are willing to spend the energy, the time and the money to breach the walls that far too many corporations have built to entrench themselves. Over the years, we have generated hundreds of billions of dollars of value for stockholders through activist campaigns where we were able to guide boards and CEOs to take the steps necessary to enhance the value of their companies. Examples of these, to name a few, are Texaco, Reynolds, Netflix, Forest Labs, Apple, CVR Energy, Herbalife, eBay, Tropicana, Cheniere, and Occidental.

“In more recent years the performance of our investment segment has been lower than our historical averages. A key detractor has been our bearish view of the market, causing us to have a large net short position. We recently have taken steps to reduce the short positions in our hedge book and concentrate for the most part on activism, which has served us so well in the past. We believe our existing portfolio has considerable upside potential over the coming years.

“We expect that, over time, IEP’s performance will speak for itself. We have a strong balance sheet, with $1.9 billion of cash and $4 billion of additional liquidity, and stand ready to take advantage of all opportunities. As we consider recent events, we are left asking why Mr. Anderson issued this inflammatory report, doing great harm to retail investors. He has admitted to shorting stock before issuing his report, believing that the stock price would temporarily decline. Was that his only goal? Whatever the motive, IEP intends to vigorously defend itself and its unitholders.”

Mr. Icahn and his affiliates own approximately 84% of the Company’s outstanding units. As a publicly traded limited partnership, IEP offers its unitholders the ability to invest alongside Mr. Icahn as co-owners of IEP and, in so doing, to participate in the Company’s activist strategy. To be clear, Mr. Icahn receives no fees, salary or any other compensation from IEP.

The day after the report was published, IEP’s market capitalization fell by $6.6 billion for our unitholders. As recently as May 4, 2023, the American Bankers Association said that “the harm caused by short selling that runs counter to economic fundamentals ultimately falls on small investors, who see value destroyed by others’ predatory behavior.” The good news for IEP’s investors is that we have Carl, the liquidity, the strategy and the know-how to fight back.

 

 

Billionaire Carl Icahn Company $18 Billion Icahn Enterprises Investigated by Federal Prosectors, Current Market Value of $11.2 Billion & Decreased 38% Since Report by Short-Seller Hindenburg Research & Latest Federal Investigation

12th May 2023 – Billionaire Carl Icahn company $18 billion Icahn Enterprises is being investigated by United States Federal prosectors (Filing).  Icahn Enterprises current market value is around $11.2 billion and had decreased around 38% since the research report on  Icahn Enterprises had been released by short-seller Hindenburg Research and the latest federal investigation.  Earlier in May 2023, Icahn Enterprises (Market value 1/5/23: $18 billion) was targeted by short-seller Hindenburg Research releasing a negative report on the company on 1st May 2023.  More info below.

 

 

Billionaire Carl Icahn Company $18 Billion Icahn Enterprises Targeted by Short-Seller Hindenburg Research, Share Price Decreases by 25% with Current Market Value of $13.4 Billion

6th May 2023 – Billionaire Carl Icahn company Icahn Enterprises (Market value 1/5/23: $18 billion) has been targeted by short-seller Hindenburg Research releasing a negative report on the company on 1st May 2023, with share price decreasing by 25% (6/5/23) and current market value of $13.4 billion. Icahn Enterprises is a diversified holding company engaged in seven primary business segments: Investment, Energy, Automotive, Food Packaging, Real Estate, Home Fashion and Pharma. Carl Icahn & family owns around 85% of Icahn Enterprises. Hindenburg Research: “In brief, Icahn has been using money taken in from new investors to pay out dividends to old investors. Such ponzi-like economic structures are sustainable only to the extent that new money is willing to risk being the last one “holding the bag”. Supporting this structure is Jefferies, the only large investment bank with research coverage on IEP. It has continuously placed a “buy” rating on IEP units. In one of the worst cases of sell-side research malpractice we’ve seen, Jefferies’ research assumes in all cases, even in its bear case, that IEP’s dividend will be safe “into perpetuity”, despite providing no support for that assumption.” Carl Icahn, Chairman of the Board of Icahn Enterprises statement 4/5/23: “We would like to reassure our long-term unitholders that the market disruption caused by the self-serving Hindenburg report does not affect IEP’s liquidity. We would normally wait for the earnings call but, due to the many inquiries we have received, we are announcing now our intention to declare a distribution in the amount of $2.00 per depositary unit for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, with the election to receive either cash or additional depositary units. I as usual will elect to take the distribution in units. The fundamentals of our business, and our belief in the activist paradigm that has served us well for decades, remain unchanged. We obviously disagree with the inflammatory assertions in the Hindenburg report and intend to respond at length – and to vigorously defend IEP and its unitholders. As we stated previously, we believe that IEP’s performance will speak for itself over the long term as it always has … … To receive accurate information about the Company, all investors are encouraged to review materials filed by IEP with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available on its investor relations website.”
