So the baby Carl (Brett and his buddy) get 30K free shares (at 0 cost) just for getting daddy to buy the shares and being able to join the BOD...what a slap in the face to real shareholders...daddy buys a stake and the silver spoon baby Carl, Brett, gets the free shares at current shareholder expense...ever wonder how the 1% super wealthy "game" the system?
The wealthy always take care of friends, family, and the politically connected. It is the way the game has always been played. Brett is so wealthy that the 30K "free shares" is just a pitance by Icahn standards. Besides, if daddy doesn't step up soon, those shares may not be worth very much!
