With a handshake and an assurance that if the conspirators can effectively show why Caesar had to die, Antony will support their actions.  What he doesn't say, though, is that he really doesn't mean it and he's only biding his time until he has substantial troops to force them out of power.

By appearing to be friendly to the conspirators, he is able to take some focus away from himself, providing him the necessary time to recruit Octavious in seeking for some revenge.
