NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Icahn Enterprises L.P. (NASDAQ: IEP) ("Icahn Enterprises") announced today an increase in the purchase price to be paid in its cash tender offer (the "Offer"), through its indirect wholly owned subsidiary, IEH FM Holdings LLC ("IEH"), to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock (the "Shares") of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML) ("Federal-Mogul") not already owned by IEH or its affiliates, to $10.00 per Share. Icahn Enterprises and IEH are extending the Offer to 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on January 17, 2017 (one minute after 11:59 P.M., New York City time, on January 17, 2017). All other terms and conditions of the Offer remain unchanged.

Icahn Enterprises and IEH confirm that the increased offer price is their best and final offer price and that no further increase to the offer price or extension to the Offer will be made.

The best and final offer price of $10.00 per Share represents a premium of 8.1% over the previous offer price of $9.25 per Share and a premium of 101% over the closing price of the Shares on February 26, 2016 (the last trading day prior to Icahn Enterprises' initial offer).

The depositary and paying agent for the Offer has informed Icahn Enterprises and Federal-Mogul that, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on December 30, 2016 (one minute after 11:59 P.M., New York City time, on December 30, 2016), 3,252,371 Shares have been validly tendered and not properly withdrawn. The tendered Shares represent approximately 10.7% of the outstanding Shares, excluding Shares owned by Icahn Enterprises, IEH, American Entertainment Properties Corp., Federal-Mogul or any of their respective affiliates (the "Affiliated Shareholders"), and, together with the Shares already owned by IEH, represent approximately 83.9% of the outstanding Shares. Consummation of the Offer is subject to certain conditions, including the tender of such number of Shares that (1) represent at least a majority of the issued and outstanding Shares, excluding Shares owned by the Affiliated Shareholders and (2) together with the Shares already owned by IEH, represent at least one Share more than 90% of the issued and outstanding Shares (the "Minimum Tender Condition").

The final expiration date of the Offer is 12:00 midnight, New York City time, on January 17, 2017 (one minute after 11:59 P.M., New York City time, on January 17, 2017). In the event that a majority of the unaffiliated stockholders of Federal-Mogul do not validly tender sufficient Shares to satisfy the Minimum Tender Condition prior to the final expiration date of the Offer, Icahn Enterprises will terminate the Merger Agreement and its proposed acquisition of Federal-Mogul.
