Carl Icahn is continuing to pressurize Apple for $150 billion buyback

Carl Icahn, the American business magnet, is found to raise his Apple investment by 22%, taking his share value to 4.73 million, and trying to push Apple for a massive $150 million buyback.

According to Apple Balla, a letter posted by Carl Icahn to Tim Cooper, reveals that the tycoon desires Apple to use a self-tender method, with a view to buying back the stocks. However, he refuses to sell his shares.

He said, “There is nothing short term about my intentions here.”

He reveals that a buyback of $525 each share will dramatically increase Apple’s share value after 3 years. According to him, the enhanced value will be a massive $1,250!

Mr. Icahn wrote in the letter, “As we proposed at our dinner, if the company decided to borrow the full $150 billion at a 3% interest rate to commence a tender at $525 per share, the result would be an immediate 33% boost to earnings per share.”

He added that the amount is “not simply large enough given that Apple currently holds $147 billion of cash on its balance sheet.”

Mr. Icahn’s statement has been criticized by a lot of people. Bill Gross, the founder and managing director of Pacific Investment Management Co. LLC, tweeted “leave Apple alone & spend more time like Bill Gates. If Icahn’s so smart, use it to help people not yourself.”

Mr. Icahn hit back all the critics by saying:”A lot of critics just keep saying why doesn’t Icahn just leave our companies alone. To me that is like saying: Why didn’t Teddy Roosevelt leave the monopolies alone when they were strangling our economy.”  

However, Apple hasn’t been found to take any decision.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
