Peloton Interactive Inc (PTON.O) has drawn interest from potential buyers including e-commerce giant Amazon.com Inc , according to a person familiar with the matter, as the exercise bike maker struggles to maintain pandemic-fueled growth.

Shares of Peloton surged 30% in extended trading on the news, which comes days after activist investor Blackwells Capital urged the company’s board to put it up for sale. Reuters
