NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (Unaudited)
June 30, 2007

Note 1 — General

American Real Estate Partners, L.P., or the Company or AREP, is a master limited partnership formed in Delaware on February 17, 1987. We are a diversified holding company owning subsidiaries engaged in the following continuing operating businesses: Real Estate and Home Fashion. Further information regarding our reportable segments is contained in Note 17.

As discussed in Note 3, in November 2006, we divested our Oil and Gas business and our Atlantic City gaming properties. On April 22, 2007, we entered into an agreement to sell all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of American Casino and Entertainment Properties LLC, or ACEP, our indirect wholly owned subsidiary, which comprises all of our remaining gaming properties. Accordingly, in the second quarter of the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007, or fiscal 2007, the financial position and the results of ACEP’s operations are presented as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations held for sale in the consolidated balance sheets and discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations for all periods in accordance with SFAS No. 144.

We own a 99% limited partnership interest in American Real Estate Holdings Limited Partnership, or AREH. AREH, the operating partnership, holds our investments and conducts our business operations. Substantially all of our assets and liabilities are owned by AREH and substantially all of our operations are conducted through AREH and its subsidiaries. American Property Investors, Inc., or API, owns a 1% general partnership interest in both us and AREH, representing an aggregate 1.99% general partnership interest in us and AREH. API is owned and controlled by Mr. Carl C. Icahn.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, or fiscal 2006. The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, related to interim financial statements. The financial information contained herein is unaudited; however, management believes all adjustments have been made that are necessary to present fairly the results for the interim periods. All such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature, except for the adoption of SFAS No. 159, as described below.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly and majority owned subsidiaries in which control can be exercised. The Company is considered to have control if it has a direct or indirect ability to make decisions about an entity’s activities through voting or similar rights. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Because of the diversified and seasonal nature of our business, the results of operations for quarterly and other interim periods are not indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Variations in the amount and timing of gains and losses on our investments can be significant. The results of our Real Estate and Home Fashion segments are seasonal.

Discontinued Operations

On November 17, 2006, our indirect majority owned subsidiary, Atlantic Coast Entertainment Holdings, Inc., or Atlantic Coast, completed the sale to Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., or Pinnacle, of the outstanding membership interests in ACE Gaming LLC, or ACE, the owner of The Sands Hotel and Casino, or The Sands, in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and 100% of the equity interests in certain subsidiaries of AREH that owned parcels of real estate adjacent to The Sands, including the Traymore site, to Pinnacle.

On November 21, 2006, our indirect wholly owned subsidiary, AREP O & G Holdings LLC, consummated the sale of all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of NEG Oil & Gas LLC, or NEG Oil & Gas, to SandRidge Energy, Inc. or SandRidge, formerly Riata Energy, Inc.

Note 1 — General  – (continued)

On April 22, 2007, American Entertainment Properties Corp, or AEP, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of AREP, entered into an agreement to sell all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of ACEP, which comprises our remaining gaming operations.

Operating properties of our real estate segment are reclassified to held for sale when subject to a contract or letter of intent. The operations of such properties are classified as discontinued operations. The properties classified as discontinued operations have changed during fiscal 2007 and, accordingly, certain amounts in the statement of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006 have been reclassified to conform to the current classification of properties. During the six months ended June 30, 2007, five properties were reclassified to held for sale.

The financial position and results of these operations are presented as assets and liabilities of discontinued operations held for sale in the consolidated balance sheets and discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations.

Filing Status of Subsidiaries

National Energy Group, Inc., or NEGI, and Atlantic Coast are reporting companies under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the ’34 Act. In addition, ACEP voluntarily files annual, quarterly and current reports under the ’34 Act.

Sales of Subsidiary Stock

SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 51, Accounting for Sales of Stock by a Subsidiary (“SAB 51”), provides guidance on accounting for the effect of issuances of a subsidiary’s stock on the parent’s investment in that subsidiary. SAB 51 allows registrants to elect an accounting policy of recording such increases or decreases in a parent’s investment (SAB 51 credits or charges, respectively) as either a gain or loss in the statement of operations or reflected as an equity transaction. In accordance with the election provided in SAB 51, we adopted a policy of recording such SAB 51 credits or charges directly to partners’ equity. As further discussed in Note 11, during the second quarter of fiscal 2007 we recognized certain SAB 51 charges to partners’ equity of approximately $6.1 million related to our investment in Atlantic Coast under our adopted policy.

New Accounting Pronouncements

SFAS No. 155.  On February 16, 2006, the FASB issued Statement No. 155, Accounting for Certain Hybrid Instruments — an Amendment of FASB Statements No. 133 and 140 (“SFAS 155”). The statement amends Statement 133 to permit fair value measurement for certain hybrid financial instruments that contain an embedded derivative, provides additional guidance on the applicability of SFAS 133 and 140 to certain financial instruments and subordinated concentrations of credit risk. The new standard is effective for the first fiscal year beginning after September 15, 2006. The adoption of SFAS 155 as of January 1, 2007 did not have any impact on our consolidated financial statements.

EITF 06-3.  In June 2006, the Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) issued EITF 06-3, “How Taxes Collected from Customers and Remitted to Governmental Authorities Should Be Presented in the Income Statement (That is, Gross versus Net Presentation)” to clarify diversity in practice on the presentation of different types of taxes in the financial statements. The EITF concluded that, for taxes within the scope of the issue, a company may adopt a policy of presenting taxes either gross within revenue or net. That is, it may include charges to customers for taxes within revenues and the charge for the taxes from the taxing authority within cost of sales, or, alternatively, it may net the charge to the customer and the charge from the taxing authority. If taxes are reported on a gross basis, and are significant, an entity should disclose the amounts of those taxes subject to EITF 06-3. The guidance is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2006. We present sales tax on a net basis in our consolidated financial statements, and the adoption of EITF 06-3 did not have any impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Note 1 — General  – (continued)

FIN No. 48.  In July 2006, the FASB issued FASB Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes — an Interpretation of FASB Statement 109 (“FIN 48”), which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return, including issues relating to financial statement recognition and measurement. FIN 48 provides that the tax effects from an uncertain tax position can be recognized in the financial statements only if the position is “more-likely-than-not” to be sustained if the position were to be challenged by a taxing authority. The assessment of the tax position is based solely on the technical merits of the position, without regard to the likelihood that the tax position may be challenged. If an uncertain tax position meets the “more-likely-than-not” threshold, the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely to be recognized upon ultimate settlement with the taxing authority is recorded. The provisions of FIN 48 are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006, with the cumulative effect of the change in accounting principle recorded as an adjustment to opening retained earnings. We adopted FIN 48 as of January 1, 2007. The adoption of FIN 48 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. See note 18 for additional information.

SFAS No. 157.  In September 2006, the FASB issued FASB Statement No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS 157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. This statement applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements and, accordingly, SFAS 157 does not require any new fair value measurements. We adopted SFAS 157 as of January 1, 2007, in conjunction with the adoption of SFAS No. 159, as required. The adoption of SFAS 157 did not have any impact on our consolidated financial statements.

SFAS No. 159.  In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities — Including an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 115 (“SFAS 159”), which gives entities the option to measure eligible financial assets, financial liabilities and firm commitments at fair value (i.e., the fair value option), on an instrument-by-instrument basis, that are otherwise not permitted to be accounted for at fair value under other accounting standards. The election to use the fair value option is available when an entity first recognizes a financial asset or financial liability or upon entering into a firm commitment. Subsequent changes in fair value must be recorded in earnings. Additionally, SFAS 159 allows for a one-time election for existing positions upon adoption, with the transition adjustment recorded to beginning partners’ equity.

We adopted SFAS 159 as of January 1, 2007 and elected to apply the fair value option to our investment in ImClone Systems Incorporated, or ImClone. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, we first applied the equity method of accounting to our investment in ImClone due to changes in ImClone’s board resulting in our having the ability to exercise significant influence over ImClone. We believe that the quality of the earnings and the value of the investment that we report over time relating to our investment in ImClone are more accurately reflected by the market value methodology of SFAS 159 rather than the equity method of accounting. The equity method of accounting would require an appraisal of the fair values of ImClone’s assets and liabilities at the dates that we acquired shares of common stock of ImClone as well as future appraisals should there be any material indications of impairment. We believe that such an appraisal would be subjective given the nature of ImClone’s pharmaceutical operations.

As of the date of adoption, the carrying value of our investment in ImClone was approximately $164.3 million and the fair value of our investment was approximately $122.2 million. In accordance with the transition requirements of SFAS 159, we recorded a cumulative effect adjustment to beginning partners’ equity for the difference between the fair value and carrying value on the date of adoption, which reduced partners’ equity by approximately $42.2 million.

As a result of the adoption of SFAS 159, we are required to record unrealized gains or losses for the change in fair value of our investment in ImClone. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2007, we

recorded approximately $24.7 million of unrealized losses and $39.2 million of unrealized gains, respectively, resulting from the change in the market value of ImClone’s stock which is recorded as a component of other income (expense), net in the consolidated statements of operations.

Reclassifications

Certain amounts in the consolidated financial statements of prior years have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

Note 2 — Operating Units

Through the second quarter of fiscal 2006, we had four principal operating businesses: Oil and Gas, Gaming, Real Estate and Home Fashion. As described in Note 3, in November 2006 we divested our Oil and Gas businesses and our Atlantic City Gaming properties. Additionally, as described in Note 3, on April 22, 2007, AEP, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of AREP, entered into an agreement to sell all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of ACEP, which comprises our remaining gaming operations. As a result, our Oil and Gas operations and all of our Gaming properties are now classified as discontinued operations and thus are not considered reportable segments of our continuing operations. We now have two principal operating businesses: Real Estate and Home Fashion.

a. Real Estate

Our real estate operations consist of three segments: rental real estate, property development and associated resort activities.

Note 2 — Operating Units  – (continued)

To improve WPI’s competitive position, we intend to continue to restructure its operations to significantly reduce its cost of goods sold by closing certain plants located in the United States, sourcing goods from lower cost overseas facilities and, potentially, acquiring manufacturing facilities outside of the United States. WPI has incurred impairment charges to write-down the value of WPI plants taken out of service to their estimated realizable value.

Included in restructuring expenses are cash charges associated with the ongoing costs of closed plants, employee severance, benefits and related costs. The amount of the accrued liability balance was $1.2 million as of December 31, 2006. During the six months ended June 30, 2007, we incurred additional restructuring costs of $9.3 million, and $9.5 million was paid during this period. As of June 30, 2007, the accrued liability balance was $1.0 million, which is included in other accrued liabilities in our consolidated balance sheet.

Total cumulative impairment and restructuring charges for the period from our acquisition of WPI on August 8, 2005 through June 30, 2007 were $72.0 million.

We expect that restructuring charges will continue to be incurred throughout fiscal 2007. As of June 30, 2007, WPI expects to incur additional restructuring costs over the next twelve months relating to the current restructuring plan in the range of $10.0 million and $17.5 million.

Ongoing litigation may result in our ownership of WPI being reduced to less than 50% as described in Part I, Item 3 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2006 filed with the SEC on March 6, 2007.

Note 3 — Discontinued Operations and Assets Held for Sale

The Sands and Related Assets

On November 17, 2006, Atlantic Coast, ACE, AREH, and certain other entities owned by or affiliated with AREH completed the sale to Pinnacle of the outstanding membership interests in ACE and 100% of the equity interests in certain subsidiaries of AREH that own parcels of real estate adjacent to The Sands, including 7.7 acres known as the Traymore site. We owned, through subsidiaries, approximately 67.6% of Atlantic Coast, which owned 100% of ACE. The aggregate price was approximately $274.8 million, of which approximately $200.6 million was paid to Atlantic Coast and approximately $74.2 million was paid to affiliates of AREH for subsidiaries that owned the Traymore site and the adjacent properties. Under the terms of the agreement, $51.8 million of the purchase price paid to Atlantic Coast was deposited into escrow to fund indemnification obligations with regard to the claims of creditors and stockholders of GB Holdings, Inc., or GB Holdings. On February 22, 2007 we resolved all outstanding litigation involving our interest in our Atlantic City gaming operations resulting in a release of all claims against us. As a result of the settlement, our ownership of Atlantic Coast increased from 67.6% to 96.9% and $50.0 million of the amount placed into escrow was released to us.

Oil and Gas Operations

On November 21, 2006, our indirect wholly owned subsidiary, AREP O & G Holdings, LLC, consummated the sale of all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of NEG Oil & Gas to SandRidge, for consideration consisting of $1.025 billion in cash, 12,842,000 shares of SandRidge’s common stock valued, at the date of closing, at $18 per share, and the repayment by SandRidge of $300.0 million of debt of NEG Oil & Gas. On April 4, 2007, we sold our entire position in SandRidge for cash consideration of approximately $243.2 million.

On November 21, 2006, pursuant to an agreement dated October 25, 2006 among AREH, NEG Oil & Gas and National Energy Group, Inc., or NEGI, NEGI sold its membership interest in NEG Holding LLC to NEG Oil & Gas for consideration of approximately $261.1 million paid in cash. Of that amount, $149.6 million was used to repay the principal of and accrued interest with respect to the NEGI 10.75% senior notes due 2007, all of which were held by us.

American Casino & Entertainment Properties LLC

On April 22, 2007, AEP, a wholly owned indirect subsidiary of AREP, entered into a Membership Interest Purchase Agreement with W2007/ACEP Holdings, LLC, an affiliate of Whitehall Street Real Estate Funds, a series of real estate investment funds affiliated with Goldman, Sachs & Co., to sell all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of ACEP, which comprises all of our remaining gaming operations, for $1.3 billion, plus or minus certain adjustments such as working capital, more fully described in the agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, AEP is required to cause ACEP to repay from funds provided by AEP, the principal, interest, prepayment penalty or premium due on ACEP’s 7.85% senior secured notes due 2012 and ACEP’s senior secured credit facility. With this transaction, we anticipate realizing a gain of approximately $0.57 billion on our investments in ACEP, after income taxes. ACEP’s casino assets are comprised of the Stratosphere Casino Hotel & Tower, the Arizona Charlie’s Decatur, the Arizona Charlie’s Boulder and the Aquarius Casino Resort. The transaction is subject to the approval of the Nevada Gaming Commission and the Nevada State Gaming Control Board, as well as customary conditions. The parties expect to close the transaction by the end of fiscal 2007; however, there can be no assurance that we will be able to consummate the transaction.

Real Estate

Operating properties are reclassified to held for sale when subject to a contract or letter of intent. The operations of such properties are classified as discontinued operations. The properties classified as discontinued operations have changed during fiscal 2007 and, accordingly, certain amounts in the statement of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006 have been reclassified to conform to the current classification of properties.

b. Noncurrent Investments

Investment in ImClone Systems Incorporated

As described in Note 1 above, we adopted SFAS 159 as of January 1, 2007 and elected to apply the fair value option to our investment in ImClone at the time of adoption. Previously, we accounted for our investment in ImClone under the equity method in accordance with APB 18, The Equity Method of Accounting for Investments in Common Stock. The transition adjustment to beginning partners’ equity as of January 1, 2007 related to the adoption of SFAS 159 was a charge of approximately $42.2 million. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2007, we recorded approximately $24.7 million of unrealized losses and $39.2 million of unrealized gains, respectively, resulting from the change in the market value of ImClone’s stock.

At June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, our carrying value of our equity investment in ImClone was $161.4 million based on the fair value method of accounting and $164.3 million based on the equity method of accounting, respectively. As of June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, the market value of our ImClone shares held was $161.4 million and $122.2 million, respectively, which we believe is not material to our total assets. As of June 30, 2007, the total shares of ImClone common stock held by us as a percentage of ImClone’s total outstanding shares was 5.3%. ImClone is a registered SEC filer and its consolidated financial statements are readily available at www.sec.gov.

Other Noncurrent Investments

The carrying value of other noncurrent investments was $16.1 million and $15.6 million as of June 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, respectively.

     $ 182,729     $ 292,221  

The minority interest in Atlantic Coast was reduced primarily as a result of the settlement of the litigation relating to GB Holdings, in February 2007. As a result, our ownership in Atlantic Coast increased from 67.6% to 96.9%. In the second quarter of fiscal 2007, we and several other investors exercised warrants to purchase shares of common stock of Atlantic Coast, resulting in an increase of the minority interest in Atlantic Coast, and a decrease in our ownership to 94.2%. Additionally, this resulted in a SAB 51 charge of $6.1 million to partners’ equity.

On February 15, 2007, NEGI paid a one-time cash dividend to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 1, 2007 in the amount of $3.31 per share, or $37.0 million in the aggregate. Of this amount, $18.5 million was paid to minority holders of NEGI stock.

Senior Unsecured Variable Rate Convertible Notes Due 2013

In April 2007, we issued an aggregate of $600.0 million of variable rate senior convertible notes due 2013, or the variable rate notes.

with respect to our depositary units in an amount in excess of $0.10 per depositary unit (as adjusted for splits, reverse splits, and/or stock dividends), the indenture requires that we simultaneously make such distribution to holders of the variable rate convertible notes in accordance with a formula set forth in the indenture.

The variable rate convertible notes have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act. In connection with the sale of the variable rate convertible notes, we and the initial buyers have entered into a registration rights agreement, pursuant to which we have agreed to file a shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with respect to resales of depositary units issuable upon conversion of the variable rate convertible notes. A preliminary registration statement on Form S-3 with respect thereto was filed on June 21, 2007.

Senior Unsecured 7.125% Notes Due 2013

On February 7, 2005, we issued $480.0 million aggregate principal amount of 7.125% senior unsecured notes due 2013, or the 7.125% notes, priced at 100% of principal amount. The 7.125% notes were issued pursuant to an indenture dated February 7, 2005 among us, as issuer, AREF as co-issuer, AREH, as guarantor, and Wilmington Trust Company, as trustee (referred to herein as the 2005 Indenture). Other than AREH, no other subsidiaries guarantee payment on the notes.

On January 16, 2007, we issued an additional $500.0 million aggregate principal amount of 7.125% notes, or the additional 7.125% notes (the 7.125% notes and the additional 7.125% notes being referred to herein as the notes), priced at 98.4% of par, or at a discount of 1.6%, pursuant to the 2005 Indenture. The notes have a fixed annual interest rate of 7.125%, which will be paid every six months on February 15 and August 15 and will mature on February 15, 2013. At the time we issued the additional 7.125% notes, we entered into a new registration rights agreement in which we agreed to permit noteholders to exchange the private notes for new notes which will be registered under the Securities Act. A preliminary registration statement on Form S-4 with respect thereto was filed on June 21, 2007.

As described below, the indenture governing the 7.125% notes restrict the ability of AREP and AREH, subject to certain exceptions, to, among other things: incur additional debt; pay dividends or make distributions; repurchase units; create liens; and enter into transactions with affiliates.

The 8.125% notes were priced at 99.266% of principal amount and have a fixed annual interest rate of 8.125%, which will be paid every six months on June 1 and December 1, commencing December 1, 2004.

The indentures also restrict the creation of liens, mergers, consolidations and sales of substantially all of our assets, and transactions with affiliates.

The indentures governing our senior unsecured notes require that on each quarterly determination date we and the guarantor maintain a minimum ratio of cash flow to fixed charges, each as defined, of 1.5 to 1.0, for the four consecutive fiscal quarters most recently completed prior to such quarterly determination date. For the four fiscal quarters ended June 30, 2007, the ratio of cash flow to fixed charges was greater than 1.5 to 1.0.

The indentures also require, on each quarterly determination date, that the ratio of total unencumbered assets, as defined, to the principal amount of unsecured indebtedness, as defined, be greater than 1.5 to 1.0 as of the last day of the most recently completed fiscal quarter. As of June 30, 2007, such ratio was in excess of 1.5 to 1.0. Based on this ratio, as of June 30, 2007, we and AREH could have incurred up to approximately $1.2 billion of additional indebtedness.

AREP Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility

On August 21, 2006, we and AREF, as the borrowers, and certain of our subsidiaries, as guarantors, entered into a credit agreement with Bear Stearns Corporate Lending Inc., as administrative agent, and certain other lender parties. Under the credit agreement, we are permitted to borrow up to $150.0 million, including a $50.0 million sublimit that may be used for letters of credit. Borrowings under the agreement, which are based on our credit rating, bear interest at LIBOR plus 1.0% to 2.0%. We pay an unused line fee of 0.25% to 0.5%. As of June 30, 2007, there were no borrowings under the facility.

Obligations under the credit agreement are guaranteed and secured by liens on substantially all of the assets of certain of our indirect wholly owned holding company subsidiaries. The credit agreement has a term of four years and all amounts are due and payable on August 21, 2010. The credit agreement includes covenants that, among other things, restrict the creation of liens and certain dispositions of property by holding company subsidiaries that are guarantors. Obligations under the credit agreement are immediately due and payable upon the occurrence of certain events of default.

As of June 30, 2007, such ratio was in excess of 2.0 to 1.0. The indenture also restricts the creation of liens, the sale of assets, mergers, consolidations or sales of substantially all of ACEP’s assets, the lease or grant of a license, concession, other agreements to occupy, manage or use ACEP’s assets, the issuance of capital stock of restricted subsidiaries and certain related party transactions. The indenture governing the ACEP notes allow ACEP and its restricted subsidiaries, to incur indebtedness, among other things, of up to $50.0 million under credit facilities, non-recourse financing of up to $15.0 million to finance the construction, purchase or lease of personal or real property used in its business, permitted affiliate subordinated indebtedness (as defined), the issuance of additional 7.85% senior secured notes due 2012 in an aggregate principal

amount not to exceed 2.0 times net cash proceeds received from equity offerings and permitted affiliate subordinated debt, and additional indebtedness of up to $10.0 million.

ACEP Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility

Effective May 11, 2006, ACEP, and certain of ACEP’s subsidiaries, as guarantors, entered into an amended and restated credit agreement with Wells Fargo Bank N.A., as syndication agent, Bear Stearns Corporate Lending Inc., as administrative agent, and certain other lender parties. As of June 30, 2007, the interest rate on the outstanding borrowings under the credit facility was 6.82% per annum. The credit agreement amends and restates, and is on substantially the same terms as, a credit agreement entered into as of January 29, 2004. Under the amended and restated credit agreement, ACEP will be permitted to borrow up to $60.0 million. Obligations under the credit agreement are secured by liens on substantially all of the assets of ACEP and its subsidiaries. The credit agreement has a term of four years and all amounts are due and payable on May 10, 2010. As of June 30, 2007, there were $40.0 million of borrowings under the credit agreement. The borrowings were incurred to finance a portion of the purchase price of the Aquarius.

The credit agreement includes covenants that, among other things, restrict the incurrence of additional indebtedness by ACEP and its subsidiaries, the issuance of disqualified or preferred stock, as defined, the creation of liens by ACEP or its subsidiaries, the sale of assets, mergers, consolidations or sales of substantially all of ACEP’s assets, the lease or grant of a license or concession, other agreements to occupy, manage or use ACEP’s assets, the issuance of capital stock of restricted subsidiaries and certain related party transactions. The credit agreement also requires that, as of the last date of each fiscal quarter, ACEP’s ratio of consolidated first lien debt to consolidated cash flow be not more than 1.0 to 1.0. As of June 30, 2007, such ratio was less than 1.0 to 1.0. As of June 30, 2007, ACEP was in compliance with each of the covenants.

The restrictions imposed by ACEP’s senior secured notes and the credit facility likely will limit our receiving payments from the operations of our hotel and gaming properties.

As described in Note 3, on April 22, 2007, AEP entered into an agreement to sell all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of ACEP. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, AEP is required to cause ACEP to repay from funds provided by AEP, the principal, interest, prepayment penalty or premiums due on ACEP’s 7.85% senior secured rates due 2012 and ACEP’s senior secured credit facility. Accordingly, pursuant to SFAS 144, these obligations are now classified as current liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets.

Mortgages Payable

Mortgages payable, all of which are non-recourse to us, bear interest at rates between 4.97% and 7.99% and have maturities between September 1, 2008 and July 1, 2016.

WestPoint Home Secured Revolving Credit Agreement

On June 16, 2006, WestPoint Home, Inc., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of WPI, entered into a $250.0 million loan and security agreement with Bank of America, N.A., as administrative agent and lender. On September 18, 2006, The CIT Group/Commercial Services, Inc., General Electric Capital Corporation and Wells Fargo Foothill, LLC were added as lenders under this credit agreement. Under the five-year agreement, borrowings are subject to a monthly borrowing base calculation and include a $75.0 million sub-limit that may be used for letters of credit. Borrowings under the agreement bear interest, at the election of WestPoint Home, either at the prime rate adjusted by an applicable margin ranging from minus 0.25% to plus 0.50% or LIBOR adjusted by an applicable margin ranging from plus 1.25% to 2.00%. WestPoint Home pays an unused line fee of 0.25% to 0.275%. Obligations under the agreement are secured by WestPoint Home’s receivables, inventory and certain machinery and equipment.

The agreement contains covenants including, among others, restrictions on the incurrence of indebtedness, investments, redemption payments, distributions, acquisition of stock, securities or assets of any other

entity and capital expenditures. However, WestPoint Home is not precluded from effecting any of these transactions if excess availability, after giving effect to such transaction, meets a minimum threshold.

As of June 30, 2007, there were no borrowings under the agreement, but there were outstanding letters of credit of approximately $26.8 million, the majority of which relate to trade obligations.

Note 13 — Other Income (Expense)

Unaudited Other Income (Expense), net, is comprised of the following (in $000s):

     $ (16,705 )    $ 44,840     $ 68,077     $ 66,151  

We recorded approximately $24.7 million of unrealized losses and $39.2 million of unrealized gains for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007, respectively, resulting from the change in the market price of ImClone’s stock.

Note 14 — Unit Options

On June 29, 2005, we granted 700,000 nonqualified unit options to our then chief executive officer to purchase up to 700,000 of our depositary units at an exercise price of $35 per unit which would vest over a period of eight years. On March 14, 2006, our chief executive officer resigned from that position, became a director and Vice Chairman of the Board of API, and was designated as API’s principal executive officer. These changes in status caused the options to be cancelled in accordance with their terms.

In accordance with SFAS No.123(R), Share Based Payment, the cancellation required that any previously unrecognized compensation cost be recognized at the date of cancellation and accordingly we recorded a compensation charge of $6.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2006 related to the previously unrecognized compensation cost.

Note 15 — Preferred Units

Pursuant to the terms of the preferred units, on February 27, 2007 we declared our scheduled annual preferred unit distribution payable in additional preferred units at the rate of 5% of the liquidation preference per preferred unit of $10. The distribution was paid on March 31, 2007 to holders of record as of March 15, 2007. A total of 566,830 additional preferred units were issued. As of June 30, 2007, 11,907,073 preferred units were issued and outstanding. As of June 30, 2007, the number of authorized preferred units was 12,100,000.

Note 16 — Earnings Per Limited Partnership Unit

Basic earnings per LP unit are based on earnings attributable to limited partners. Net earnings available for limited partners are divided by the weighted average number of limited partnership units outstanding.

Note 16 — Earnings Per Limited Partnership Unit  – (continued)

Diluted earnings per LP unit are based on earnings before the preferred unit distribution and interest on the convertible notes as the numerator with the denominator based on the weighted average number of limited partnership units and equivalent limited partnership units outstanding assuming conversion. The preferred units are considered to be equivalent units.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per LP unit for the periods indicated (in 000s, except per unit data) (unaudited):

Diluted (loss) earnings:   $ (0.40 )    $ 1.23     $ 1.13     $ 2.06  

For purposes of calculating earnings per LP unit, the income relating to our share of ImClone’s earnings per share is based on the earnings per share reported by ImClone for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006.

As their effect would have been anti-dilutive, 5,561,897 and 0 units for the three months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively, have been excluded from the weighted average LP units and equivalent partnership units outstanding.

As their effect would have been anti-dilutive, 3,326,940 and 2,761,572 units for the six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively, have been excluded from the weighted average LP units and equivalent partnership units outstanding.

Note 17 — Segment Reporting

Through the second quarter of fiscal 2006, we maintained the following six reportable segments: (1) Oil and Gas; (2) Gaming; (3) Rental Real Estate; (4) Property Development; (5) Resort Activities; and (6) Home Fashion. Our three real estate related operating and reportable segments are all individually immaterial and have been aggregated for purposes of the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations.

Note 17 — Segment Reporting  – (continued)

In November 2006, we divested our Oil and Gas and our Atlantic City gaming operating units. Additionally, as described in Note 3, on April 22, 2007, we entered into an agreement to sell all of the issued and outstanding membership interests of ACEP, which comprises the remainder of our gaming operations. As a result, our Oil and Gas and gaming operations are now classified as discontinued operations and thus are not considered reportable segments of our continuing operations. We now maintain the four remaining reportable segments.

We assess and measure segment operating results based on segment earnings from operations as disclosed below. Segment earnings from operations are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements nor synonymous with cash flow from operations. As discussed above, the terms of financings for Home Fashion and Resorts Activities segments impose restrictions on their ability to transfer funds to us, including restrictions on dividends, distributions, loans and other transactions.

The revenues and net segment operating loss and assets for each of the reportable segments of our continuing operations are summarized as follows for the periods indicated (in $000s) (unaudited):

     $ 1,155     $ 13     $ 1,891     $ (40 ) 

We recorded income tax provisions of $1.89 million and $(0.04) million on pre-tax loss of $21.0 million and $28.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively. Our effective income tax rate was (9.0)% and 0.14% for the respective periods. We recorded income tax provisions of $1.2 million and $0.01 million on pre-tax loss of $66.8 million and pre-tax income of $5.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2007 and 2006, respectively. Our effective tax rate was (1.7)% and 0.2% for the respective periods. The difference between the effective tax rate and the statutory federal rate of 35% is due principally to income or losses from partnership entities in which taxes are the responsibility of the partners, as well as changes in valuation allowances.

We adopted the provisions of FIN 48, on January 1, 2007. FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in accordance with SFAS No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes, and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. The adoption of FIN 48 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

As of the date of adoption, our unrecognized tax benefits totaled $5.0 million, all of which, if recognized, would affect the annual effective tax rate. During the six months ended June 30, 2007, there have been no changes to the amount of unrecognized tax benefits. We believe it is reasonably possible that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits could decrease by as much as $3.1 million prior to June 30, 2008 as a result of settlements due to audits and the expiration of statutes of limitations.

We recognize interest accrued related to uncertain tax positions in interest expense. Penalties are recognized as a component of income tax expense. The amount of accrued interest and penalties on uncertain tax positions was $1.4 million and $1.1 million as June 30, 2007 and January 1, 2007, respectively. The amount of interest and penalties accrued during the six months ended June 30, 2007 was approximately $0.3 million.

Note 18 — Income Taxes  – (continued)

We or certain of our subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, various state jurisdictions and various non-U.S. jurisdictions. We are no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and non-U.S. income tax examinations for fiscal years prior to 2002.

Note 19 — Commitments and Contingencies

We are from time to time parties to various legal proceedings arising out of our businesses. We believe however, that other than the proceedings described in Part I, Item 3 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2006, filed with the SEC on March 6, 2007, including that relating to WPI discussed below, there are no proceedings pending or threatened against us which, if determined adversely, would have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.

WPI Litigation

Federal Proceedings

In November and December 2005, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York rendered a decision in Contrarian Funds Inc. v. WestPoint Stevens, Inc. et al., and issued orders reversing certain provisions of the Bankruptcy Court order, or the Sale Order, pursuant to which we acquired our ownership of a majority of the common stock of WPI. WPI acquired substantially all of the assets of WestPoint Stevens, Inc. On April 13, 2006, the Bankruptcy Court entered a remand order, or the Remand Order, which provides, among other things, that all of the shares of common stock and rights to acquire shares of common stock of WPI issued to us and the other first lien lenders or held in escrow pursuant to the Sale Order constituted “replacement collateral”, other than 5,250,000 shares of common stock that we acquired for cash. The 5,250,000 shares represent approximately 27% of the 19,498,389 shares of common stock of WPI now outstanding. According to the Remand Order, we would share pro rata with the other first lien lenders in proceeds realized from the disposition of the replacement collateral and, to the extent there is remaining replacement collateral after satisfying first lien lender claims, we would share pro rata with the other second lien lenders in any further proceeds. We were holders of approximately 39.99% of the outstanding first lien debt and approximately 51.21% of the outstanding second lien debt. On April 13, 2006, the Bankruptcy Court also entered an order staying the Remand Order pending appeal. The parties filed cross-appeals of the Remand Order and Contrarian Funds and certain other first lien lenders, or the Contrarian Group, filed a motion to lift the stay of the Remand Order pending appeal. Oral argument was held in the District Court on October 19, 2006.

On May 9, 2007, the District Court issued an order conditioning the continuation of the Bankruptcy Court's stay on the posting of a bond. No bond was posted. On May 22, 2007, WPI, its subsidiary WestPoint Home, Inc., and we filed a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit requesting, among other relief, the reinstatement of the Sale Order. The Second Circuit held oral argument on June 26, 2007 and denied the Petition on June 28, 2007, instructing the District Court to set a new deadline for posting a bond. On July 3, 2007, the District Court issued an order setting July 11, 2007 as the deadline for posting a bond. No bond was posted. The District Court has not ruled on the parties’ cross-appeals of the Remand Order.

Delaware Proceedings

On December 18, 2006, the Contrarian Group filed an action in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, New Castle County, Contrarian Funds, LLC, et al v. WestPoint International Inc., et al., seeking, among other things, a temporary order restraining WPI from proceeding with a stockholders' meeting scheduled for December 20, 2006, which was to consider corporate actions relating to a proposed offering of $200 million of preferred stock of WPI and related relief. The application was denied by order dated December 19, 2006. The stockholders' meeting took place on December 20, 2006, the preferred stock offering was approved, and other corporate actions were taken. We purchased all of the $200.0 million of preferred stock.

Note 19 — Commitments and Contingencies  – (continued)

On January 19, 2007, Beal Bank and the Contrarian Group filed an Amended Complaint, captioned Beal Bank, S.S.B., et al. v. WestPoint International, Inc., et al. Plaintiffs seek, among other relief, an order declaring that WPI is obliged to register the common stock (other than the 5,250,000 shares purchased by us) in Beal Bank's name, an order declaring certain corporate governance changes implemented in 2005 invalid, an order declaring invalid the actions taken at the December 20, 2006 stockholders' meeting and an order to “unwind” the issuance of the preferred stock, or, alternatively, directing that such preferred stock be held in trust. On July 18, 2007, Plaintiffs filed a motion for leave to file a Second Amended Complaint asserting additional causes of action. The parties are in the initial stages of discovery. The Delaware action remains pending and we intend to vigorously defend against such claims.

We currently own approximately 67.7% of the outstanding shares of common stock and 100% of the preferred stock of WPI. As a result of the District Court’s November, 2005 order in the Bankruptcy case, the proceedings on remand, and the proceedings in the Delaware action, our percentage of the outstanding shares of common stock of WPI could be reduced to less than 50% and perhaps substantially less and our ownership of the preferred stock of WPI could also be affected. If we were to lose control of WPI, it could adversely affect the business and prospects of WPI and the value of our investment in it. In addition, we consolidated the balance sheet of WPI as of June 30, 2007 and WPI’s results of operations for the period from the date of acquisition through June 30, 2007. If we were to own less than 50% of the outstanding common stock or the challenge to our preferred stock ownership is successful, we would have to evaluate whether we should consolidate WPI and if so our financial statements could be materially different than as presented as of June 30, 2007, March 31, 2007, December 31, 2006 and December 31, 2005 and for the periods then ended.

We intend to vigorously defend against all claims asserted in these actions and believe that we have valid defenses. However, we cannot predict the outcome of these proceedings or the ultimate impact on our investment in WPI or the business prospects of WPI.

Name Changes

Each of AREP, AREH and API is in the process of effecting a name change. When effective, AREP, AREH and API will be known as Icahn Enterprises, L.P., Icahn Enterprises Holdings L.P. and Icahn Enterprises GP Inc., respectively.

Acquisition

On August 8, 2007, we entered into a Contribution and Exchange Agreement (the “Contribution Agreement”), among us, CCI Offshore Corp. (“CCI Offshore”), CCI Onshore Corp. (“CCI Onshore”), Icahn Management LP (“Icahn Management” and, together with CCI Offshore and CCI Onshore, the “Contributors”) and Carl C. Icahn, pursuant to which, as more fully described below, we simultaneously acquired the general partnership interests in the general partners of the private investment funds (which are referred to herein as the “Master Funds”) controlled by Mr. Icahn and in the management company that provides certain management and administrative services to the Master Funds and certain funds that invest in the Master Funds (the “Feeder Funds”). Mr. Icahn controlled the Contributors.

New Icahn Management and the General Partners (as such terms are defined below) of the Master Funds (collectively, the “Management Entities”) provide investment advisory and certain other management services to the Master Funds and the Feeder Funds (collectively, the “Funds”). The Management Entities do not provide investment advisory or other management services to any other entities, individuals or accounts, and

interests in the Funds are offered only to certain sophisticated and accredited investors on the basis of exemptions from the registration requirements of the federal securities laws and are not publicly available. The Management Entities generate income from amounts earned pursuant to contractual arrangements with the Funds. Such amounts typically include an annual management fee of 2.5% of assets under management and performance-based, or incentive, allocation of 25% of net realized and unrealized gains earned by the Funds subject to a “high water mark”, although such amounts have been (and may in the future be) modified or waived in certain circumstances. The Management Entities and their affiliates may also earn income through their principal investments in the Funds.

As of June 30, 2007, the Management Entities had approximately $7 billion of committed funds (including $1.8 billion from Mr. Icahn and affiliated entities on which no management fees or incentive allocations are applicable). For the 12-months ended June 30, 2007, there was an average of approximately $3.5 billion in third-party fee paying assets under management, which generated approximately $80 million of management fees and approximately $240 million in incentive allocations (a portion of which is accrued but not earned until the end of the year) for a total of approximately $320 million in fees. Today, there is approximately $5 billion of third-party fee paying assets under management. Mr. Icahn formed the Management Entities in November 2004 when certain of the Funds commenced investment operations with approximately $1 billion under management, of which $300 million was provided by Mr. Icahn and his affiliated entities. The investment strategy employed by the Management Entities for the Funds is set and led by Mr. Icahn. The Funds pursue a value-oriented activist investment philosophy. The Funds invest across a variety of industries and types of securities, including long and short equities, long and short bonds, bank debt and other corporate obligations, risk arbitrage and capital structure arbitrage and other special situations. The Funds invest a material portion of their capital in publicly traded equity and debt securities of companies that the Management Entities believe to be undervalued by the marketplace. The Funds sometimes take significant positions in the companies in which they invest.

We presently intend to purchase approximately $700 million of limited partnership interests in the Funds on which no management fees or incentive allocations would be applicable.

As consideration for the contribution to us of the Partnership Interests (as defined below), we delivered to the Contributors 8,632,679 AREP Units at the closing, representing $810 million of AREP Units based on the volume-weighted average price of the AREP Units on the NYSE for the 20-trading-day period ending on August 7, 2008 (the day before the closing). In addition, we have agreed to make certain contingent earn-out payments to the Contributors over a five-year period payable in additional AREP Units based on our after-tax earnings from the Fund management business we acquired, which includes both management fees and performance-based (incentive) allocations paid by the Funds to the Management Entities. The earn-out payments will be calculated as set forth in the Contribution Agreement, with the maximum earn-out payment equaling $120 million in 2007 (if such after tax earnings exceed $289 million, with after tax earnings for 2007 including the 2.5% annual management fee for only the fourth quarter of 2007), $165 million for 2008 (if such after tax earnings exceed $540 million), $223 million for 2009 (if such after tax earnings exceed $746 million), $279 million for 2010 (if such after tax earnings exceed $1.004 billion) and $334 million for 2011 (if such after tax earnings exceed $1.327 billion). There is a catch-up after 2011, based on total after tax earnings in the five-year earn-out period, with a maximum aggregate earn-out (including any catch-up) of $1.121 billion which is subject to achieving total after tax earnings in such period of at least $3.906 billion.

Simultaneously with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Contribution Agreement, we and Mr. Icahn entered into a non-compete agreement pursuant to which Mr. Icahn agreed, for a period of ten years, not to engage, directly or indirectly, in any other business that generates at least 25% of its revenue or income from investment management activities (a “Competing Business”). Mr. Icahn also agreed, for a period of ten years, not to solicit on behalf of a Competing Business any investor in any of the Funds or any employee of any general partner or manager of any of the Funds.

Note 21 — Subsequent Events  – (continued)

We have also entered into an employment agreement (the “Icahn Employment Agreement”) with Mr. Icahn pursuant to which, over a five-year term, Mr. Icahn will serve as our Chairman and as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Icahn Capital Management LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“New Icahn Management”). Mr. Icahn also serves as the Chief Executive Officer of the General Partners. During the employment term, Mr. Icahn has agreed to devote his substantial time and efforts to overseeing our strategic and business affairs and the asset management operations of New Icahn Management, subject in each case to his ability to continue to engage in certain permitted outside activities relating to his ongoing investment and business endeavors. During his period of employment, and for a period of two years following a termination of employment upon his resignation (other than for “Good Reason,” as such term is defined in the Icahn Employment Agreement), or a termination upon expiration of the employment term (or subsequent termination of employment if he remains employed following the expiration of the term), Mr. Icahn will be subject to non-competition restrictions that will prohibit him from engaging in business activities that generate in excess of 25% of their revenue or income from investment management activities and additional restrictions that will prohibit him from soliciting investors in funds under our management or soliciting or hiring investment professionals or executives of ours or New Icahn Management. In the event Mr. Icahn is terminated during the term by us without “Cause” or he resigns for “Good Reason” (other than in connection with a change in control) the period of non-competition will be one year following such termination. Mr. Icahn will not be subject to any such post-termination restrictions if his employment is terminated as a result of his death or disability or the termination by him for “Good Reason” or by us without “Cause,” in each case in connection with a change in control.

During the employment term, we will pay Mr. Icahn an annual base salary of $900,000 and an annual incentive bonus based on a bonus formula with two components. The first component is based on the annual return on assets under management by the Management Entities as follows: the amount of this bonus component is determined by applying a percentage payout rate (ranging from 0.30% to 1.10%, depending on the aggregate annual percentage returns realized for the year in question) to the annual realized and unrealized net profits (prior to reduction for management fees or incentive allocations) of managed funds on all fee-paying assets under management, provided that in calculating the annual return on all fee-paying assets and the appropriate percentage payout rate, the annual profits in any year shall be reduced to reflect previously incurred losses that have not already been offset against annual returns.

The second component of the annual bonus payable by us is tied to the growth in our annual net income (other than income or losses resulting from the operations of the Management Entities) (“Covered Net Income”) as compared to a fixed annual base amount of $400 million (pro-rated for 2007) (the “Base Amount”) as follows: no portion of this annual bonus shall be payable unless Covered Net Income for the bonus year under consideration equals or exceeds the Base Amount, in which case the annual bonus shall consist of an increasing percentage of the amount by which Covered Net Income exceeds the Base Amount (ranging generally from 8% to 20%). In determining Covered Net Income, certain adjustments are provided for, including the exclusion of expenses relating to bonus determination under the Icahn Employment Agreement and expenses relating to the acquisition described above. Further, in determining this bonus component, net losses (if any) from the prior calendar years are carried forward and applied to reduce the payout amount through the application of an adjustment factor, determined as follows: Covered Net Income for the bonus year in question will be multiplied by a fraction (no less than zero) where (x) the numerator is equal to current year Covered Net Income minus any carried forward net loss, and (y) the denominator is equal to the current year Covered Net Income.

Fifty percent of all bonus amounts payable by us and New Icahn Management shall be subject to mandatory deferral and treated as though invested in the funds and as though subject to a 2% annual management fee (but no incentive allocation). Such deferred amounts shall be subject to vesting in equal annual installments over a three-year period commencing from the last day of the year giving rise to the bonus. Amounts

deferred generally are not subject to acceleration and unvested deferred amounts shall be forfeited if Mr. Icahn ceases to be employed under his employment agreement, provided that all deferred amounts shall vest in full and be payable in a lump sum payment thereafter if either the employment of Mr. Icahn is terminated by us without “Cause,” Mr. Icahn terminates his employment for “Good Reason” or upon Mr. Icahn’s death or disability during the employment term. In addition, upon Mr. Icahn’s completion of service through the end of the employment term, Mr. Icahn will also vest in full in any mandatory deferrals. Vested deferred amounts (and all deferred returns, earnings and profits thereon) shall be paid to Mr. Icahn within sixty (60) days following the vesting date. Returns on amounts subject to deferral shall be subject to management fees charged by New Icahn Management, but not any incentive fees.

In the event that Mr. Icahn is terminated by us without “Cause” or he terminates his employment for “Good Reason,” he shall be entitled to a lump sum payment equal to one year of base salary, the average aggregate annual bonus paid to him by us during the three most recently completed years (or the average annualized bonus paid to him for any shorter period during which he has been employed) and a pro rata Annual Bonus for the year of termination. If, within twelve (12) months following the occurrence of a change in control of us, Mr. Icahn is terminated by us without “Cause” or he resigns for “Good Reason” (which is limited to defined events relating to a material adverse change in his position and responsibilities, our material breach of the Icahn Employment Agreement or the relocation of his principal place of work), Mr. Icahn shall be entitled to a payment equal to two times his base salary and two times the Average Bonus and a pro-rata Annual Bonus for the year of termination. If Mr. Icahn is terminated as a result of his death or disability, he (or his estate, if applicable) shall receive a lump sum payment equal to the remaining base salary payable through December 31 of the year of termination, any unpaid bonus relating to prior years and one-half of the pro rata Annual Bonus for the year of termination (based on actual results through the date of termination annualized for the year of termination). If Mr. Icahn resigns without “Good Reason,” he shall be entitled to certain accrued benefits, one-half of any unpaid bonus relating to prior years and one-half of the pro-rata Annual Bonus (as determined in the case of death or disability). All such payments shall be conditioned on Mr. Icahn (or his estate, if applicable) signing a general release in favor of us and our affiliates.

If at any time between the effective date of the Icahn Employment Agreement and the fifth anniversary of such date Mr. Icahn ceases to serve as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of New Icahn Management and as the individual primarily responsible for the management of the Funds’ investment portfolios for any reason, Mr. Icahn (directly or through his affiliates other than AREP) will be required to maintain investments in one or more of the Funds for a defined commitment period (the later of the fifth (5th) anniversary of the effective date of the Icahn Employment Agreement or the third anniversary of his cessation of management responsibility for the Funds) an aggregate amount equal to not less than $1 billion (along with any amounts earned thereon) (the “Committed Funds”), except that he shall not have any obligation regarding the Committed Funds if his employment has been terminated without “Cause” by the affirmative vote of a majority of the Board including a majority of the independent directors. During such period of time, the Committed Funds will be subject to a management fee of 2% and an incentive allocation of 20%. If at any time during this commitment period the value of the Committed Funds falls below $1 billion, the management fee and incentive allocation assessed against the Committed Funds will be equal to the fees applicable if the value of the Committed Funds were $1 billion.

During the employment term, Mr. Icahn shall also be entitled to participate in our benefit programs and receive the level of perquisites generally made available to our senior executives.

The Contribution Agreement and the transactions contemplated thereby and the Icahn Employment Agreement were approved by the Special Committee of the independent directors of our general partner, and by the full board of directors. The Special Committee was represented by Debevoise & Plimpton LLP as its independent counsel. In addition, Sandler O’Neill & Partners, L.P. was retained by the Special Committee as

its financial adviser. The Special Committee also retained Johnson & Associates, Inc. and BDO Seidman, LLP to advise on the terms of Mr. Icahn’s employment agreement.

CCI Offshore is the general partner of Icahn Offshore LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Offshore GP”), which, in turn, is the general partner of each of Icahn Partners Master Fund LP, a Cayman Islands exempted limited partnership (“Offshore Master Fund I”), Icahn Partners Master Fund II L.P., a Cayman Islands exempted limited partnership (“Master Fund II”), and Icahn Partners Master Fund III L.P., a Cayman Islands exempted limited partnership (“Master Fund III” and, collectively with Offshore Master Fund I and Master Fund II, the “Offshore Master Funds”).

CCI Onshore is the general partner of Icahn Onshore LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Onshore GP” and together with Offshore GP, the “General Partners”), which, in turn, is the general partner of Icahn Partners LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“Onshore Master Fund” and, collectively with the Offshore Master Funds, the “Master Funds”).

CCI Offshore contributed to us 100% of CCI Offshore’s general partnership interests in Offshore GP (the “Offshore Partnership Interests”) and CCI Onshore contributed to us 100% of CCI Onshore’s general partnership interests in Onshore GP (the “Onshore Partnership Interests”). The General Partners’ capital account with respect to the Offshore Partnership Interests and the Onshore Partnership Interests at the time of our acquisition aggregated $10 million.

Immediately prior to the execution and delivery of the Contribution Agreement, Icahn Management and New Icahn Management entered into an agreement pursuant to which Icahn Management contributed substantially all of its assets and liabilities, other than certain rights in respect of deferred management fees, to New Icahn Management in exchange for 100% of the general partnership interests in New Icahn Management. Such contribution included the assignment of the Management Agreements with the Funds. Pursuant to the Contribution Agreement, Icahn Management contributed to us 100% of Icahn Management’s general partnership interests in New Icahn Management (the “New Icahn Management Partnership Interests” and collectively with the Onshore Partnership Interests and the Offshore Partnership Interests, the “Partnership Interests”).

We and the Funds also entered into an agreement (the “Covered Affiliate Agreement”), simultaneously with the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Contribution Agreement, pursuant to which we (and certain of our subsidiaries) agreed, in general, to be bound by certain restrictions on our investments in any assets that the Offshore GP and the Onshore GP deem suitable for the Funds, other than government and agency bonds, cash equivalents and investments in non-public companies. We and our subsidiaries will not be restricted from making investments in the securities of certain companies in which Mr. Icahn or companies he controlled had an interest in as of the date the initial Funds launched, and companies in which we currently have an interest. We and our subsidiaries, either alone or acting together with a group, will not be restricted from (i) acquiring all or any portion of the assets of any public company in or in connection with a negotiated transaction or series of related negotiated transactions or (ii) engaging in a negotiated merger transaction with a public company and, pursuant thereto, conducting and completing a tender offer for securities of the company. The terms of the Covered Affiliate Agreement may be amended, modified or waived with the consent of AREP and each of the Funds, provided, however, that a majority of the members of an investor committee maintained for certain of the Funds (which includes the three largest investors of certain of the Funds not affiliated with Mr. Icahn and who wish to serve as members) may (with AREP’s consent) amend, modify or waive any provision of the Covered Affiliate Agreement with respect to any particular transaction or series of related transactions.

Potential Acquisitions

On February 9, 2007, we, through a wholly owned subsidiary, entered into an agreement and plan of merger, or the merger agreement, pursuant to which we would acquire Lear Corporation, or Lear, a publicly

traded company that provides automotive interior systems worldwide, for an aggregate consideration of approximately $5.2 billion, including the assumption by the surviving entity of certain outstanding indebtedness of Lear and refinancing of Lear's existing term loan and credit facility. The consummation of the transaction was subject to a shareholder vote.

On July 16, 2007, at Lear’s 2007 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, the merger did not receive the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Lear’s common stock. As a result, the merger agreement terminated in accordance with its terms. As required by the merger agreement, in connection with the termination, Lear (i) paid to our subsidiary $12.5 million, (ii) issued to the subsidiary 335,570 shares of Lear’s common stock and (iii) increased from 24% to 27% the share ownership limitation under the limited waiver of Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law granted by Lear to us along with affiliates of and funds managed by Carl C. Icahn. In addition, if (1) Lear stockholders enter into a definitive agreement with respect to an Acquisition Proposal, as defined in the merger agreement, within 12 months after the termination of the merger agreement and such transaction is completed and (2) such Acquisition Proposal has received approval, if required by applicable Law (as defined in the merger agreement), by the affirmative vote or consent of the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of Lear common stock within such 12 month period, Lear will be required to pay to our subsidiary an amount in cash equal to the Superior Fee, as defined in the merger agreement, less $12.5 million.

In connection with the termination of the merger agreement, the commitment letter, dated as of February 9, 2007, or the commitment letter, by and among our subsidiary, Bank of America, N.A. and Banc of America Securities LLC, also terminated pursuant to its terms. The commitment letter provided for certain credit facilities intended to refinance and replace Lear’s existing credit facilities and to fund the transactions contemplated by the merger agreement.

Mr. Icahn previously proposed that we acquire his interest in American Railcar, Inc., or American Railcar, and Philip Services Corporation, or Philip Services. American Railcar is a publicly traded company that is primarily engaged in the business of manufacturing covered hoppers and tank railcars. Philip Services is an industrial services company that provides industrial outsourcing, environmental services and metal services to major industry sectors throughout North America. A committee of independent directors of the board was formed to consider those proposals. Currently, at Mr. Icahn's request, only the proposal regarding the potential acquisition of the metal services business of Philip Services is being considered by the committee. Any acquisition would be subject to, among other things, the negotiation, execution and closing of a definitive agreement and the receipt of a fairness opinion. We continuously identify, evaluate and engage in discussions concerning potential investments and acquisitions, including potential investments in and acquisitions of affiliates of Mr. Icahn. There cannot be any assurance that any potential transactions that we consider will be completed.

Overview

We are a master limited partnership formed in Delaware on February 17, 1987. We are a diversified holding company owning subsidiaries engaged in the following operating businesses: Real Estate and Home Fashion. As noted, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, we divested our Oil and Gas operating unit and our Atlantic City gaming properties. On April 22, 2007, we entered into an agreement to sell our remaining gaming operations. In addition to our Real Estate and Home Fashion operating units, we discuss the Holding Company. The Holding Company includes the unconsolidated results of AREH and AREP, and investment activity and expenses associated with the activities of a holding company.

We own a 99% limited partnership interest in AREH. AREH and its subsidiaries hold our investments and substantially all of our operations are conducted through AREH and its subsidiaries. API, owns a 1% general partnership interest in both us and AREH, representing an aggregate 1.99% general partnership interest in us and AREH. API is owned and controlled by Mr. Carl C. Icahn. As of June 30, 2007, affiliates of Mr. Icahn beneficially owned approximately 90% of our outstanding depositary units and approximately 86.5% of our outstanding preferred units.

Our business strategy includes the following:

Enhance Value of Existing Businesses. We continually evaluate our operating businesses with a view to maximizing their value to us. In each of our businesses, we place senior management with the expertise to run their businesses and give them operating objectives that they must achieve. We may make additional investments in business segments to improve the performance of their operations.

Invest Capital to Grow Existing Operations or Add New Operating Platforms. Our management team has extensive experience in identifying, acquiring and developing undervalued businesses or assets. We may look to make acquisitions of assets or operations that complement our existing operations. We also may look to add new operating platforms by acquiring businesses or assets directly or establishing an ownership position through the purchase of debt or equity securities of troubled entities and may then negotiate for the ownership or effective control of their assets.

Enhance Returns on Assets.  We continually look for opportunities to enhance returns on both liquid and operating assets. We may seek to unlock value by selling all or a part of a business segment.

Results of Operations

Overview

The key factors affecting our financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2007 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2006 were:

Reduced revenues from WPI of $71.4 million due to its continuing efforts to reduce revenues from less profitable programs and a weaker retail sales environment, offset in part by reduced WPI operating expenses of $66.7 million;
Reduced revenues from our Real Estate operating unit of $22.7 million, primarily due to the current slow-down in residential property development;
Increase in net change in realized and unrealized loss on investments of $61.5 million;
Sale of our position in SandRidge common stock for total cash consideration of $243.2 million; and
Issuance of $600 million of variable rate senior convertible notes in April 2007.

The key factors affecting our financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2007 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2006 were:

Reduced revenues from WPI of $104.2 million due to its continuing efforts to reduce revenues from less profitable programs and a weaker retail sales environment, offset in part by reduced WPI operating expenses of $98.5 million;
Increased interest income of $49.6 million due to increases in Holding Company cash position resulting from the sales of our Oil and Gas and Atlantic City gaming operations in November 2006, proceeds from additional debt offerings as discussed below, and proceeds from the sale of SandRidge common stock as discussed below;
Issuance of $500 million of additional 7.125% senior unsecured notes in January 2007;
Issuance of $600 million of variable rate senior convertible notes in April 2007;
Sale of our position in SandRidge common stock for total cash consideration of $243.2 million; and
Settlement of litigation relating to GB Holdings.

Consolidated Financial Results

Three months ended June 30, 2007 compared to three months ended June 30, 2006

Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2007 decreased by $94.0 million, or 33.0%, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006. The decrease was due to reduced revenues from WPI of $71.4 million caused by its continuing efforts to reduce revenues from less profitable programs and a weaker retail sales environment coupled with reduced Real Estate operating unit revenues of $22.7 million due to the current residential slow-down of real estate development sales.

Operating loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2007 increased by $18.0 million, or 47.5%, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006. The increase results primarily from the decrease in the operating income of the Real Estate operating unit of $13.3 million, principally in the property development segment.

Interest expense for the second quarter of fiscal 2007 increased by $14.4 million, or 68.6%, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006. The increase includes interest on the $500 million of additional 7.125% senior unsecured notes issued in January 2007 as well as $600 million of variable senior convertible notes issued in April 2007. Interest income for the second quarter of fiscal 2007 increased by $29.3 million, or 243.8%, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006, primarily due to the increase in the Holding Company’s cash position resulting from the issuance of $500 million of additional 7.125% senior unsecured notes in January 2007, issuance of $600 million of variable rate senior convertible notes in April 2007, as well as

the proceeds received from the sales of our Oil and Gas and Atlantic City gaming operations in November 2006 and sale of our SandRidge common stock in April 2007. Other income (expense) for the second quarter of fiscal 2007, net decreased by $61.5 million, or 137.3%, as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006, resulting primarily from unrealized losses on our investment in ImClone Systems Incorporated as well as decreased gains on securities sold short. Equity in earnings of affiliate for the second quarter of fiscal 2007, which pertains to our investment in ImClone, decreased by 8.0 million, or 100%, compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2006. In fiscal 2006, we accounted for our investment in ImClone under the equity method. As of January 1, 2007 we adopted SFAS 159 and now account for our investment in ImClone at fair value, with subsequent changes in fair value reflected in Other income (expense), net.

Six months ended June 30, 2007 compared to six months ended June 30, 2006

Revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2007 decreased by $119.8 million, or 21.8%, as compared to the first six months of fiscal 2006. The decrease was due to reduced revenues from WPI of $104.2 million caused by its continuing efforts to reduce revenues from less profitable programs and weaker retail sales environment coupled with reduced Real Estate operating unit revenues of $15.5 million due to the current residential slow-down of real estate development sales.

Operating loss for the first six months of fiscal 2007 increased by $14.8 million, or 17.7%, as compared to the first six months of fiscal 2006. The increase results primarily from the decrease in the operating income of the Real Estate operating unit of $12.5 million, principally in the property development segment, offset in part by lower Holding Company general and administrative expenses.

Interest expense for the first six months of fiscal 2007 increased by $21.5 million, or 51.8%, as compared to the first six months of fiscal 2006. The increase includes interest on the $500 million of additional 7.125% senior unsecured notes issued in January 2007 as well as $600 million of variable senior convertible notes issued in April 2007. Interest income increased by $49.6 million, or 218.9%, as compared to the first six months of fiscal 2006, primarily due to the increase in the Holding Company’s cash position resulting from the issuance of $500 million of additional 7.125% senior unsecured notes, issuance of $600 million of variable rate senior convertible notes in April 2007, as well as the proceeds received from the sales of our Oil and Gas and Atlantic City gaming operations in November, 2006 and sale of SandRidge common stock in April 2007. Other income (expense), net remained relatively flat with a slight increase of $1.9 million, or 2.9% as compared to the first six months of fiscal 2006. Equity in earnings of affiliate for the first six months fiscal 2007, which pertains to our investment in ImClone, decreased by 8.0 million, or 100%, compared to the first six months of fiscal 2006. In fiscal 2006, we accounted for our investment in ImClone under the equity method. As of January 1, 2007 we adopted SFAS 159 and now account for our investment in ImClone at fair value, with subsequent changes in fair value reflected in Other income (expense), net.
