Summary: Carl Icahn's two main partners for an attempted buyout of Reckson Associates backed out of the deal over the weekend -- Mack-Cali withdrew on Saturday and Harry Macklowe, who originally proposed the deal to Icahn, on Sunday. A Reckson spokesman claims that Mr. Icahn may pursue the $49-per-share cash bid on his own. Icahn and Macklowe had formed Rome Acquisition L.P. to buyout Reckson, and were to submit a formal bid today. Independent directors at Reckson previously accepted a cash/stock bid from SL Green that is currently worth $45.70 a share.
