Icahn talks Apple billions over casual dinner

23 sec read

When you’re rich, certain conversations can be nonchalant when they wouldn’t be for other people. Take, for example, the conversation between Carl Icahn and Tim Cook where billions of dollars were discussed over asparagus.

Activist investor Carl Icahn and Apple CEO Tim Cook met on Monday, as expected. And, to hear tell from Icahn, things went reasonably well.

In a post to Twitter, Icahn said he pressed Cook to raise Apple’s stock buyback well above the $60 billion to which it’s already committed. “Had a cordial dinner with Tim last night,” Icahn tweeted. “We pushed hard for a 150 billion buyback. We decided to continue dialogue in about three weeks.”
