A day after Dynegy Inc. announced it found no other bidders during its "go-shop" period, investor Carl Icahn extended his offer to buy the company, the company said Wednesday.

Icahn's $665 million bid to buy the struggling power plant operator was set to expire Jan. 25. It is now extended to Feb. 9 to allow time for approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

Houston-based Dynegy (NYSE: DYN) said Jan. 25 that it had contacted more than 50 potential buyers, but found none willing to make an competing offer.
