Carl Icahn Issues Letter To Howard Solomon Of Forest Laboratories
Date:7/2/2012

Those sales now look to me like a savvy bet against the prospects of a company that was not prepared to meet the calamitous events that would befall it several years in the future when Lexapro went off patent.  However, unfortunate loyal shareholders that were not privy to your knowledge and t
