Carl Icahn prepares for a blogging debut
The shareholder activist likely to use his Icahn Report blog to present his and his associates views on corporate governance issues.
Carl Icahn has been called many things: corporate raider, shareholder activist, private equity investor, according to Wikipedia.
And, maybe soon, we may add billionaire blogger to the list.
Icahn, who is making a second run at Motorola's board, is considering using the blog to highlight reports that either he or his associates pen on a range of corporate governance topics, from excessive pay at underperforming companies to moves that fall short of being favorable to shareholders, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.
Icahn apparently also plans to use the forum to highlight sticky issues at companies where he is not an investor, unless they involve a company he has already publicly indicated he is interested in targeting, according to The Journal.
