Icahn Increases Stake in Chesapeake Energy

Monday, 20 December 2010 10:11 AM

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn has increased his stake in Chesapeake Energy Corp., the second-biggest U.S. natural-gas producer, and wants to make the company more profitable, according to a regulatory filing.

Icahn increased his ownership to about 5 percent from 2.5 percent, according to the filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. He has already had discussions with company officials about Chesapeake’s operations and “the maximization of shareholder value,” according to the filing, which was released after the close of trading Friday.

On Dec. 15, Icahn agreed to buy Dynegy Inc., the third- biggest U.S. independent power producer, for $665 million, outbidding Blackstone Group LP.

Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake’s stock has fallen 10 percent this year as gas prices have declined. The company announced plans this year to shift its production away from gas and into crude oil.
