The company’s board of directors today announced that they approved an agreement with Carl Icahn. The agreement says “Mr. Icahn and affiliated entities have agreed not to make purchases that would cause them to own more than 10% of Dell’s shares or enter into agreements with other shareholders who, together with the Icahn entities, would collectively own in excess of 15% of Dell’s shares.”
