CARMEL, Ind., March 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Conseco, Inc. (NYSE: CNO) today announced that it is declining a request from Steel Partners II, L.P. to nominate two of its representatives to Conseco's board of directors. Conseco also announced that it has been reviewing strategic alternatives and has engaged the investment banking firm of Morgan Stanley as its strategic advisor.

Conseco CEO Jim Prieur said, "We share with Steel Partners, as well as our other shareholders, a common interest in taking actions that will increase the value of the company for shareholders.
