May 4, 2023 at 4:25 PM EDT

SUNNY ISLES BEACH, Fla., May 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Icahn Enterprises L.P. (Nasdaq: IEP) ("IEP" or the "Company") today issued the following statement:

"We would like to reassure our long-term unitholders that the market disruption caused by the self-serving Hindenburg report does not affect IEP's liquidity. We would normally wait for the earnings call but, due to the many inquiries we have received, we are announcing now our intention to declare a distribution in the amount of $2.00 per depositary unit for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, with the election to receive either cash or additional depositary units. I as usual will elect to take the distribution in units. The fundamentals of our business, and our belief in the activist paradigm that has served us well for decades, remain unchanged. We obviously disagree with the inflammatory assertions in the Hindenburg report and intend to respond at length – and to vigorously defend IEP and its unitholders. As we stated previously, we believe that IEP's performance will speak for itself over the long term as it always has," stated Carl Icahn, Chairman of the Board of Icahn Enterprises.

To receive accurate information about the Company, all investors are encouraged to review materials filed by IEP with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available on its investor relations website.

Icahn Enterprises L.P., a master limited partnership, is a diversified holding company engaged in seven primary business segments: Investment, Energy, Automotive, Food Packaging, Real Estate, Home Fashion and Pharma.
