This put the end to a month’s long war where Icahn had accused eBay Chief Executive Officer John Donahoe of "inexcusable incompetence" and attacked the company's board repeatedly for shoddy governance. In an interview with Reuters, Icahn said he might add to his eBay holdings. He said while he supported a PayPal split in the near future, now was not the time.
