Carl Icahn owns 100% of Icahn Enterprises GP, the general partner of Icahn Enterprises and Icahn Enterprises Holdings, and approximately 89% of Icahn Enterprises’ outstanding shares.

On May 10th, 2023, Icahn Enterprises reported its Q1 results for the period ending March 31st, 2023. For the quarter, revenues came in at $2.64 billion, 35.5% lower year-over-year, while the loss per unit was $0.77, versus an income per unit of 1.08 in Q1-2022. Lower revenues were due to Icahn’s investments recording weaker results compared to last year.

Units of IEP have been under pressure lately, as a short report published by Hindenburg argued that the stock is trading at an “inflated” valuation against NAV. Carl Icahn responded to a Hindenburg, criticizing the report and reassuring unitholders of the partnership’s financial health by declaring its regular $2.00 quarterly dividend.

For Q1, the company reported nnet income of $195 million, or $1.94 per diluted share, on net sales of $2.3 billion for the first quarter of 2023, compared to a net income of $94 million, or 93 cents per diluted share, on net sales of $2.4 billion for the first quarter of 2022. Adjusted earnings for the first quarter of 2023 was $1.44 per diluted share compared to adjusted earnings of 2 cents per diluted share in the first quarter of 2022, primarily driven by improved crack spreads.

#3: FirstEnergy Corp. (FE)

Dividend Yield: 4.1%
Percent of Carl Icahn’s Portfolio: 4.9%

FirstEnergy Corp, through its subsidiaries, generates, transmits, and distributes electricity in the United States. The company operates through Regulated Distribution and Regulated Transmission segments. It owns and manages hydroelectric, coal-fired, nuclear, and natural gas, as well as renewable power generating facilities.

Its 10 electric distribution companies form one of the nation’s largest investor-owned electric systems, serving customers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Maryland, and New York. The $23.0 billion company serves approximately six million customers.

On April 27th, 2023, FirstEnergy announced its Q1 results for the period ending March 31st, 2023. For the quarter, revenues came in at $3.2 billion, 7.0% higher year-over-year, while adjusted EPS totaled $0.60, stable year-over-year.

Significant earnings drivers in the quarter include the company’s long-term regulated investment strategies, lower operating expenses, and higher investment income. These were primarily offset by the impact of mild winter temperatures, which negatively impacted usage.

Specifically, total distribution deliveries fell by 5.3% compared to last year due to lower weather-related usage in the residential and commercial sectors and nearly flat industrial sales. Residential and commercial sales fell by 8.4% and by 7.1% year-over-year, respectively, while sales to industrial customers fell by less than 1% over the same period.

Management reaffirmed its FY2023 outlook, which projects adjusted EPS between $2.44 and $2.64.

#5: Xerox Holdings (XRX)

Dividend Yield: 5.8%
Percent of Carl Icahn’s Portfolio: 3.3%

Xerox Corporation traces its lineage back to 1906 when The Haloid Photographic Company began manufacturing photographic paper and equipment. Through a series of mergers and spinoffs, the Xerox we know today was formed.

Xerox spun off its business processing unit in 2017 (now called Conduent) and now focuses on design, development, and sales of document management systems. The company produces about $7 billion in annual revenue.

Xerox reported first-quarter earnings on April 25th, 2023, and results were mixed. Revenue was up 3% year-over-year to $1.72 billion, which missed estimates by $10 million. However, adjusted earnings-per-share came to 49 cents, which was 32 cents better than expected.

Source: Investor Presentation

The company posted an adjusted operating margin of 6.9% of revenue, which was a staggering 710 basis points better than the same period a year ago.

Xerox guided for revenue for 2023 to be flat to down low-single digits in constant currency, which implies revenue of about $7 billion. In addition, the adjusted operating margin is expected to be 5.0% to 5.5% of revenue, which would be well down on Q1 results. Free cash flow is expected to be $500+ million, which, if achieved, would be a staggering 20% of the company’s market cap.

#6: Newell Brands (NWL)

Dividend Yield: 3.1%
Percent of Carl Icahn’s Portfolio: 1.8%

Newell has transformed itself into a consumer brands powerhouse with large acquisitions, such as its merger with Jarden as well as its purchase of Sistema. The company’s annual revenue is over $8 billion, and it has a diversified product portfolio.

Source: Investor Presentation

Newell posted first quarter earnings on April 28th, 2023, and results were mixed, and guidance was weak. The company noted an adjusted loss of six cents per share, which was three cents worse than expected.

Revenue plummeted 25% year-over-year to $1.8 billion but did fractionally beat estimates. Management noted it is making progress in its operational improvement plans and that the current economic environment for consumers is tough. Despite this, management maintained their longer-term bullishness on the company’s prospects.

Core sales are expected to fall between 14% and 10% for Q2, while normalized earnings should be somewhere between 10 cents and 18 cents. The consensus among analysts prior to this update was for 38 cents in earnings-per-share, so the guide for Q2 was extremely weak.

#7: Bausch Health Companies (BHC)

Dividend Yield: N/A (Bausch Health does not currently pay a quarterly dividend)
Percent of Carl Icahn’s Portfolio: 1.4%

#8: Dana Inc. (DAN)

Percent of Carl Icahn’s Portfolio: 1.3%

Dana Incorporated provides power-conveyance and energy-management solutions for vehicles and machinery in North America, Europe, South America, and the Asia Pacific. It operates in four segments: Light Vehicle Drive Systems, Commercial Vehicle Drive and Motion Systems, Off-Highway Drive and Motion Systems, and Power Technologies.

Sales for the first quarter of 2023 totaled $2.64 billion, compared with $2.48 billion in the same period of 2022, representing a $164 million increase driven by improved demand, cost-recovery actions, and conversion of the sales backlog, partially offset by the translation of foreign currencies.

Source: Investor Presentation

In the first quarter of 2023, Adjusted EBITDA reached $204 million, marking a significant increase from $170 million during the corresponding period in 2022. The noteworthy margin improvement of 80 basis points during this quarter was mainly attributed to several factors: a surge in sales volume, favorable adjustments in customer pricing, successful recovery measures, and reduced spending on the development of electric-vehicle products.

However, there were certain challenges that partially offset this progress, such as production inefficiencies caused by unpredictable customer demand schedules and negative impacts from exchange-rate fluctuations.

#9: Cheniere Energy (LNG)

Dividend Yield: 1.1%
Percent of Carl Icahn’s Portfolio: 1.0%

As anticipated, the sales figure of $922 million for the first quarter experienced a decline of 4.7% compared to the previous year. This decrease can be attributed to the presence of significant deals that are poised to materialize in the second quarter and beyond, notably in the public sector, where substantial contracts are involved. It is worth noting that the company’s overall prospects remain robust across all three business segments, instilling a sense of optimism among management regarding the sales performance for the entirety of 2023.
