CARL ICAHN ISSUES LETTER TO TWITTER FOLLOWERS REGARDING APPLE

Dear Twitter Followers:

We were pleased to hear Tim Cook yesterday state publicly: “By and large, my view is, for cash that we don’t need – with some level of buffer – we want to give it back [to shareholders]. It may come across that we are, but we’re not hoarders.”  This position with respect to excess cash is great news for shareholders, and we look forward to the capital return program update in April, anticipating it will include a large increase to share repurchases.

The Shareholders’ Square Table (SST) is a platform from which we can unite and fight for our rights as shareholders and steer towards the goal of real corporate democracy.

When you sign up and become a member of SST, you’ll receive emails with timely information on the movement, and have full access to our website containing:

  • In depth reports about activism and various companies we are involved in
  • Insights on business
  • Commentary and criticism of certain actions by boards and CEOs
  • ‘No-brainers’ and ‘Absurdities’

Most importantly, our periodic posts will discuss what can be done to change our current, dysfunctional system of corporate governance.

While there are many good CEOs and boards there are far too many ineffectual ones that are strangling shareholders and the economy.
