To prevent a third proxy battle with Carl Icahn in three years, biotechnology company Biogen Idec has agreed to give the activist hedge fund manager a third seat on its board of directors.
Under the deal with Icahn, cancer specialist Eric Rowinsky will join Biogen’s board, alongside Alexander Denner, managing director of Icahn Partners, and Harvard Medical School genetics professor Richard Mulligan, Icahn nominees elected to the board last year.
