Carl Icahn Issues Statement Regarding Closing of the Taj Mahal

Today is a sad day for Atlantic City.  Despite our best efforts, which included losing almost $350 million over just a few short years, we were unable to save the Taj Mahal.  I am extremely grateful to all of the almost 3,000 employees for their hard work, especially those that stayed loyal to us during this trying period. After our last offer, which included medical, was rejected, it was simply impossible to find a workable path forward that would not have required funding additional investments and losses in excess of $100 million over the next year. Like many of the employees at the Taj Mahal, I wish things had turned out differently.
