Item 8.01 Other Events.

As a result of the escalating COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, CONMED Corporation is withdrawing its previously issued first quarter and full-year 2020 financial guidance.  The Company’s prior financial guidance was based on the estimated impact as of the date of issuance, March 10, 2020.  At that time, the impact of COVID-19 was principally confined to Asia and Europe.  In recent days, the pandemic has expanded further into Europe and the United States, limiting the Company’s ability to estimate the specific impact on its business operations or financial results for the first quarter and full-year 2020.  The Company anticipates that it may experience material disruption to its financial results for the first quarter and full-year 2020 as a result of the ongoing spread of COVID-19.
