FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


ICAHN COMMENTS ON LATEST DELL MACHINATIONS
 
 
 
 
New York, New York, August 2, 2013 – Carl C. Icahn today issued the following statement regarding Dell Inc.:

In every war there are many battles. We are pleased today to have won yet another battle, but the war regarding Dell is far from over. Through its actions today, the Special Committee has finally acknowledged publicly what we have been saying all along – that Michael Dell’s offer substantially undervalues the company. Obviously Mr. Dell’s previous characterization of his offer as “best and final” was neither. However, we are not satisfied – we believe that an increase of a mere 13 cents is an insult to shareholders. And promising shareholders an additional 8-cent dividend that we were already entitled to, and pretending that it is some sort of gift, is a further slap in the face. We also continue to believe that the Special Committee is improperly putting its thumb on the scales in favor of Mr. Dell’s offer by changing the voting rules midstream and by refusing to hold the Special Meeting and the Annual Meeting on the same date and time – the only mechanism that would give shareholders a true choice. As such, we will continue to vigorously pursue our lawsuit in the Delaware Court of Chancery.

We believe this lawsuit has now become of paramount importance. It is crucial that the Special Meeting and the Annual Meeting be held on the same date and time and that the same record date be used for both meetings. This is particularly significant due to the large number of shares that are now in the hands of arbitrageurs.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

Certain statements contained in this letter, and the documents referred to in this letter, are forward-looking statements including, but not limited to, statements that are predications of or indicate future events, trends, plans or objectives. Undue reliance should not be placed on such statements because, by their nature, they are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or activities and are subject to many risks and uncertainties. Due to such risks and uncertainties, actual events or results or actual performance may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated in such forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of the future tense or other forward-looking words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “should,” “may,” “will,” “objective,” “projection,” “forecast,” “management believes,” “continue,” “strategy,” “position” or the negative of those terms or other variations of them or by comparable terminology.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the expectations set forth in this letter include, among other things, the factors identified under the section entitled “Risk Factors” in Dell’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 1, 2013 and under the section entitled “Cautionary Statement Concerning Forward-Looking Information” in Dell’s Definitive Proxy Statement filed with the SEC on May 31, 2013. Such forward-looking statements should therefore be construed in light of such factors, and Icahn and Southeastern are under no obligation, and expressly disclaim any intention or obligation, to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
