Icahn has been leading the charge against the Dell-Silver Lake proposal. He filed a lawsuit on Thursday against the PC maker to prevent the company from setting a new date for the meeting at which shareholder votes on the Dell-Silver Lake proposal are to be counted. The suit also demanded that if a new vote date is set, the company's annual meeting "be held on the same date and time, and with the same record date," according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
The new agreement reached on Friday also amends the breakup fee from $450 million to $180 million in case any merger agreement is terminated.
