    From the press release E-Trade put out:

     

    "However, in response to Citadel’s request, E*TRADE has formed a special committee of the Board, comprised entirely of independent directors, which has directed the company to retain Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC (“Morgan Stanley”) to conduct another broad review of strategic alternatives."

     

    SO they refuse to call a special meeting, but give in to exploring a sale? A little odd but its a positive for shareholders.
