Billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn pulled his offer to buy oil refiner CVR Energy (CVI) on Tuesday after earlier winning a $2.6 billion takeover battle for the company.

In a letter to CVR Energy Icahn Enterprises said it does not think the proposed transaction is feasible any longer, citing market conditions.
