It took less than two months, but Carl Icahn has another activist victory.
Talisman Energy, the Canadian oil and gas company that Icahn bought in October, said it would name two Icahn nominees to its board of directors. In exchange, Icahn has agreed to vote for Talisman's slate of nominees next year.
"I strongly believe in the potential of Talisman and I'm pleased to have reached this constructive outcome," Icahn said.

Icahn Enterprises owns about 7% of Talisman's shares.
