Extracting further value from Talisman 'about as complicated as it gets': analyst

A TD Securities Inc. analyst doubts activist investors will make a public push for more aggressive asset sales or spinoffs at Talisman Energy Inc., despite speculation of such a move pushing up the stock.

With Talisman shares climbing, TD’s Menno Hulshof said a corporate split would be a complicated move for any activist shareholder, especially as the company’s management, led by Chief Executive Hal Kvisle, has already showed willingness to make major changes.
