UPDATE 1-Icahn seeks two Dynegy board seats - filing
NEW YORK, March 1
NEW YORK, March 1 (Reuters) - Billionaire activist investor Carl Icahn is in discussions with power company Dynegy Inc (DYN.N) about appointing two representatives to the company's board, according to a regulatory filing on Tuesday.
A $665 million deal to sell the company to Icahn fell through last month when the investor was unable to convince shareholders to agree to a $5.50 per share cash bid.
Dynegy's top management and board members announced their resignations last month, after failing to sell the company for the second time in a year. [ID:nN21241801]
Icahn remains Dynegy's largest shareholder, holding nearly 10 percent of the company's shares.
