08:21 EDTEBAYeBay, Carl Icahn settle proxy contest, PayPal spin-off proposal withdrawn
eBay announced that it has reached an agreement with investor Carl Icahn, ending the proxy contest before the company’s upcoming annual meeting of stockholders. Icahn is withdrawing both his proposal to separate the company’s PayPal business and his two nominees to the company’s Board of Directors. The company said it has agreed to Icahn’s suggestion to appoint business executive David Dorman as an independent director to its Board of Directors. This will expand the number of independent directors to 10 on the 12-member board. The other two directors are eBay Founder and Chairman Pierre Omidyar, the company’s largest shareholder, and company President and CEO John Donahoe. Dorman is a Founding Partner of Centerview Capital Technology. “We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with Carl, settling proxy issues and enabling our board and management team to focus our full attention on a goal every shareholder agrees on – growing PayPal and eBay, and delivering sustainable shareholder value,” said eBay President and CEO John Donahoe. “As a result of our conversations, it became clear that Carl and I strongly agree on the potential of PayPal and our company,” Donahoe said. “I respect Carl’s willingness to work together to drive sustainable shareholder value today and into the future. His record shows that he has done this with many other companies in the past. Icahn has signed a confidentiality agreement covering any non-public information that directors and certain officers of the company may share with him. In addition, the company agreed not to adopt a policy precluding such persons from speaking to Icahn, and that it would advise them that they may speak to Icahn if they are willing to do so.

07:20 EDTGMGM fights against judge's request for 'park-it' order, Bloomberg says
U.S. District Judge Nelva Gonzales Ramos asked GM to explain why she shouldn’t order the automaker to recommend that drivers of the recalled cars should cease driving them, according to Bloomberg, citing a statement from the automotive company. GM feels it shouldn’t be obligated to tell vehicle owners to park the recalled models until they are fixed, because they’re safe to use if government-approved recall instructions are followed.
