Reuters: ConMed exploring a sale of the company

Surgical device maker ConMed (CNMD) is exploring a sale of the company, Reuters reported earlier today, after activist investors late last year took issue with its performance and corporate governance.

The company's advisers, BoA Merrill Lynch and Greenhill, reportedly have contacted orthopedic device makers in recent weeks to gauge interest.

CNMD has an attractive orthopedics and sports medicine business that could appeal to companies such as Zimmer Holdings (ZMH), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Stryker (SYK), Covidien (COV) and Medtronic (MDT).

CNMD shares gained 7.2%, rallying from a loss before the report late in the session.
