Exclusive: Carl Icahn On Motorola Breakup


Don't miss Friday's Fast Money - we're talking with billionaire investor Carl Ichan about the potential Mortorola break up.

In response to Thursday's announcement Carl Icahn stated in a press release, "For many months I have been publicly advocating the separation of Mobile Devices from Motorola's other business and I am pleased to see that Motorola is finally exploring that proposal. However, we have previously informed Motorola that we expect to run a slate of directors for the upcoming annual meeting and this announcement by Motorola will not deter us from that effort -- we believe Motorola is finally moving in the right direction but certainly still has a long way to go."
