On December 28, 2015, Icahn Enterprises was informed by the Issuer that, in accordance with Section 8.3 of the Bridgestone Agreement, (A) the Issuer's board of directors had determined that Icahn Enterprises' proposal (the "Proposal") to acquire all of the outstanding Shares for $18.50 per Share in cash in a negotiated transaction that would not be subject to any due diligence, financing or antitrust conditions constitutes a Superior Proposal (as defined in the Bridgestone Agreement) and (B) the Issuer had provided a Company Notice (as defined in the Bridgestone Agreement) to Bridgestone of the Issuer's intention to effect a Change of Recommendation (as defined in the Bridgestone Agreement) in response to the Proposal and terminate the Bridgestone Agreement to enter into a merger agreement with Icahn Enterprises.
The Reporting Persons believe that unless Bridgestone agrees to a transaction prior to 8:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 31, 2015 that is superior to the transaction contemplated by the Proposal, the Issuer will terminate the Bridgestone Agreement and execute a merger agreement with Icahn Enterprises to effectuate the transaction contemplated by the Proposal.
