Diebold Nixdorf, a North Canton, Ohio-based maker and servicer of automated teller machines, has hired Credit Suisse and Evercore to explore a possible sale, according to CNBC's Alex Sherman.

Why it's a big deal: Diebold is the world's largest ATM maker, with a reported 32% share.

  • Those expressing interest include rival NCR and private equity firm Bain Capital.
  • Diebold no longer makes voting machines. It sold off that business in 2009.

More from CNBC's Sherman:

"Diebold shares have been in a freefall since forecasting lower-than-expected EBITDA earlier this month and revealing it would use cash on hand and tap its revolving credit line to buy $160 million of Wincor Nixdorf shares, the German company Diebold [mostly] bought in 2016."

  • And yet these workers, with loved ones of their own, keep showing up at hospitals across the country, knowing that more Americans than they can possibly care for are depending on them.

The Fed's massive injections of liquidity have reopened much of the bond market, and after back-to-back weeks in which more than $100 billion flowed out of bond funds, investors have regained their bearings and now see opportunity.

What's happening: But after the hemorrhaging outflows relented last week, bulls may now be sticking their heads out a bit too far. Junk bond funds took in more than $7 billion for the week ended April 1, according to Refinitiv Lipper, setting a new weekly record.

Top CEOs, in private conversations and pleas to President Trump, are warning of economic catastrophe if America doesn't begin planning for a phased return to work as soon as May, corporate leaders tell Axios.

Why it matters: The CEOs say massive numbers of companies, big and small, could go under if business and government don't start urgent talks about ways groups of workers can return.
