Management
Carl Icahn is an American billionaire financier, corporate raider and private equity investor. In 2009, Forbes estimated his net worth to be $9 billion and is in an eight way tie for the 43rd richest man in the world. Icahn obtained an A.B. in Philosophy from Princeton University in 1957 and dropped out of the New York University School of Medicine. His career on Wall Street began in 1961 and in 1968 he formed Icahn & Co., a securities firm that focused on risk arbitrage and options trading. In 1978 he began seizing control of positions in individual companies including: RJR Nabisco, TWA, Texaco, Phillips Petroleum, Western Union, Gulf & Western, Vicacom, Uniroyal, Dan River, Marshall Field, E-II (Culligan and Samsonite), American Can, USX, Marvel Comics, Revlon, Imclone, Federal-Mogul, Fairmont Hotels, Kerr-McGee, Time Warner and Motorola.

Commentary
Carl Icahn is the quintessential activist and has been extremely successful in both his return on investment and attaining his activist goals. He is very passionate about shareholder rights and good corporate governance and will go to extreme lengths to fight incompetent boards and over compensated managers. He has even formed the United Shareholders of America to assist in this battle. However, his most successful activist maneuvers have been orchestrating acquisitions or joint ventures in some of his larger positions, such as BEA Systems, ImClone and Medimmune. In March of 2011 he returned all outside money to investors and now manages only his own capital, in excess of $5 billion.

The information contained herein is based on public filings, public data and, in some cases, information provided by third parties that may not be publicly available. The information is based upon sources we believe to be reliable, but is not guaranteed by us and does not surport to be a complete or error-free statement or summary of the available data. In certain situations, such as bankruptcy exits and acquisitions, the returns may not reflect proceeds received by the filer after the 13D exit due to a restructuring investment made pursuant to a bankruptcy or an investment made by the filer as part of the acquisition group. The filer’s return on its 13D investment is based on the filer’s average cost and if not available, the closing price on the date of the 13D filing. When a filer exits its 13D investment pursuant to a 13G filing or 13D amendment reporting less than 5% ownership, the exit price assumes that the filer disposed of its remaining shares at the closing price on the date of exit. In certain situations, the filer may own less than 5% of the company and still have a live filing, as it may be part of a group.
