Victory Motorcycle Important Announcement


Victory Motorcycle Important Announcement

Polaris Industries To Wind Down Victory Motorcycles Operations Strengthening Its Position In The Powersports Industry 


Press Release: Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII) today announced it will immediately begin winding down its Victory Motorcycles brand and related operations. Polaris will assist dealers in liquidating existing inventories while continuing to supply parts for a period of 10 years, along with providing service and warranty coverage to Victory dealers and owners. Today’s announcement does not affect any other Polaris business units.

“This was an incredibly difficult decision for me, my team and the Polaris Board of Directors,” said Polaris Industries Chairman and CEO Scott Wine. “Over the past 18 years, we have invested not only resources, but our hearts and souls, into forging the Victory Motorcycles brand, and we are exceptionally proud of what our team has accomplished. Since inception, our teams have designed and produced nearly 60 Victory models that have been honored with 25 of the industry’s top awards. The experience, knowledge, infrastructure and capability we’ve built in those 18 years gave us the confidence to acquire and develop the Indian Motorcycle brand, so I would like to express my gratitude to everyone associated with Victory Motorcycles and celebrate your many contributions.”

Several factors influenced today’s announcement. Victory has struggled to establish the market share needed to succeed and be profitable. The competitive pressures of a challenging motorcycle market have increased the headwinds for the brand. Given the significant additional investments required for Victory to launch new global platforms that meet changing consumer preferences, and considering the strong performance and growth potential of Indian Motorcycle, the decision to more narrowly focus Polaris’ energy and investments became quite clear.

“This decision will improve the profitability of Polaris and our global motorcycle business, and will materially improve our competitive stance in the industry,” said Scott Wine. “Our focus is on profitable growth, and in an environment of finite resources, this move allows us to optimize and align our resources behind both our premium, high performing Indian Motorcycle brand and our innovative Slingshot brand, enhancing our focus on accelerating the success of those brands. Ultimately this decision will propel the industry-leading product innovation that is core to our strategy while fostering long-term growth and increased shareholder value.”

Polaris will reduce the appropriate operating cost based on this decision, while continuing to support the future growth of the ongoing motorcycle business.  Polaris remains committed to maintaining its presence in the Spirit Lake, Iowa community with Indian Motorcycle production and in the Huntsville, Alabama community with its Slingshot production.
                                                     
Any one-time costs associated with supporting Victory dealers in selling their remaining inventory, the disposal of factory inventory, tooling, and other physical assets, and the cancellation of various supplier arrangements will be recorded in the 2017 income statement in respective sales, gross profit and operation expense. These costs will be excluded from Polaris’ provided 2017 sales and earnings guidance on a non-GAAP basis.

Polaris will release its fourth quarter and full-year 2016 financial results and provide 2017 guidance on Tuesday, January 24, 2017. A webcast and conference call will be held at 9:00 a.m. Central Time on January 24, 2017 to discuss the results. A slide presentation and link to the webcast will be posted on the Polaris Investor Relations website at  ir.polaris.com.  To listen to the conference call by phone, dial 877-706-7543 in the U.S. and Canada, or 478-219-0273 Internationally.  The Conference ID is #45015597.

Star Tron Helps NPA Get Top Dollar for Each Unit

Star Tron Helps NPA Get Top Dollar for Each Unit 

Press Release: Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment has a huge following among motorcycle riders seeking maximum performance, reliability and fuel economy, but it has commercial fans, too. National Powersport Auctions (NPA), the industry’s leading provider of auction and remarketing services in the powersports industry, relies on Star Tron.  For more than 20 years, NPA has been providing its services to lenders and dealers throughout the nation. Each year, the firm sells 60,000 motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATVs and scooters from its facilities in San Diego, Dallas, Cincinnati and Atlanta as well as via e-auctions that take place on a 24/7 basis.

NPA discovered Star Tron when it was seeking a solution to old, stale gas – a common problem when dealing with aged, unsold inventory or repossessed bikes. In order to get top dollar, engines need to start easily and run strong. Old fuel prevents engines from running smoothly and in some cases from even starting, both of which negatively impact the price attained on the auction block. To ensure engines that run well, NPA had been draining the fuel from each machine when it was inventoried, which resulted in large quantities of old fuel of unknown quality that continued to age and degrade. There were also two other related problems: the need to purchase fresh fuel when the machine was scheduled to be auctioned and how to dispose of the old fuel.  

“At National Powersport Auctions we process thousands of motorcycles, ATVs and side by sides each month. When vehicles need fuel added we rely on Star Tron additive to keep the fuel fresh. We have had instances where vehicles have sat in storage for over a year and the fuel that is treated with Star Tron is always good to go. Star Tron saves us time and money again and again.”  - Jeff Kinney, VP of Operations.

Star Tron products are manufactured at Star brite’s manufacturing and distribution facility located in Montgomery, Alabama, from which they are shipped worldwide. Like all Star brite products, Star Tron is sold via an established network of distributors. 
Star brite is a leading manufacturer of products for the household, marine, powersports, outdoor power equipment and RV markets. The company’s administrative offices are located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. For more information, visit www.starbrite.com or call (800) 327-8583.
