GoPro CEO and Founder Nick Woodman said his company is open to a sale.

"It would be irresponsible not to," Woodman told CNNMoney. "If there was an opportunity to merge GoPro with a larger parent company that could help us scale our business and provide a better return on investment to our investors than we can alone as an independent company -- absolutely ... we would welcome the opportunity to explode such an opportunity."

Woodman, who made the comments at CES in Las Vegas, noted GoPro is not actively pursuing a sale at the moment or in active discussions.

A spokesperson said the company is working with JPMorgan to explore its options.

Earlier this week shares dropped 30%, hitting an all-time low when GoPro announced it was getting out of the drone business.

The company also announced it's cutting 20% of its staff including some executives.

Woodman is also cutting his annual pay to $1.

Dense fog has developed across parts of northern California Monday morning and the potential for light showers will return today. We'll dry out and warm up on Tuesday, but more cool and wet weather is expected mid week. A more substantial wet system is currently projected to move into our region this weekend.
