Carl Icahn: I've never seen a board as bad as Dell's

Billionaire activist Carl Icahn said in an interview with CNBC that he's never seen a board as bad as Dell's.

In fact, getting rid of the board would be an asset to the company, Icahn said.

He added that he definitely has a candidate in mind for CEO.

The comments came a day before a Dell shareholder vote on a buyout offer from founder Michael Dell.

Icahn has urged shareholders to vote against the $24.4 billion offer from Michael Dell and private-equity firm Silver Lake, saying at $13.65 a share, it "substantially" undervalues the company.

There has been buzz this week that Dell may postpone the vote in order to garner more support for the deal.
