We’ve lost count of the rounds in the long-standing battle between billionaire takeover artist Carl Icahn and multimillionaire investor William Ackman.
The latest exchange of blows centers on the nutritional supplements company Herbalife.
Icahn has reportedly invested; Ackman has bet against the company.
In an interview on Bloomberg TV, Icahn didn’t pull punches: “It’s no secret I don’t like Ackman,” he said. “I don’t respect him, and I don’t like him.”
Ackman answered with a news release, noting that he had to sue Icahn for payment after selling him a stake in a company called Hallwood
“Carl Icahn is a great investor, but, in my experience, he does not keep his
word,” Ackman said.
