Illumina (NASDAQ:ILMN) stock is a hot topic among traders on Monday as reports claim Carl Icahn is gearing up for a proxy fight.

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Icahn has issues with recent moves made by Illumina. That includes claims that the company wasted $50 million of investors’ money with its acquisition of cancer-test maker Grail. It should be noted Illumina spent $7.1 billion to acquire this company.

Icahn points out that the acquisition was already facing pushback from regulators in both the U.S. and Europe. He claims that Illumina is moving forward with the deal despite this being a sign that changes need to come to the company.

The reports claim Icahn is getting ready to send a letter to shareholders of ILMN outlining his plans for change. That includes his alleged decision to nominate three members to the company’s board of directors.

What This Means for ILMN Stock

If Icahn has his way, the changes he brings to Illumina could be good news for shareholders. That’s something they would likely welcome, as shares of ILMN stock are down 27.6% over the last year. In fact, we’re already seeing positive movement connected to today’s reports, with shares of the stock climbing 14.9% higher on Monday morning.
