Icahn Enterprises May 2016 Investor Presentation

Updated on

Icahn Enterprises investor presentation for the month ended May 31, 2016.

Investment Highlights

  • I Mr. Icahn believes that the current environment continues to be conducive to activism
    • Several factors are responsible for this:
      1) low interest rates, which make acquisitions much less costly and therefore much more attractive,
      2) abundance oi cash rich companies that would benefit from making synergistic acquisitions, and
      3) the current awareness by many institutional investors that the prevalence of mediocre top management and non-caring boards at many of America’s companies must be dealt with
    • But an activist catalyst is often needed to make an acquisition happen
    • We, at IEP, have spent years engaging in the activist model and believe it is the catalyst needed to drive highly accretive M&A and consolidation activity
    • As a corollary, low interest rates will greatly increase the ability oi the companies IEP controls to make judicious, friendly or not so friendly, acquisitions using our activist expertise
  • Recent Financial Results
    • Net loss attributable to Icahn Enterprises oi approximately $837 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016
