Arctic Cat Industry News - migsy - 04-23-2017

Quote:Minnesota's ATV and snowmobile maker Arctic Cat will become part of the Textron empire.

Textron agreed to buy snowmobile maker Arctic Cat in an all-cash deal. Here are the details owners of the two companies need to consider.

Betting on outdoor recreational vehicles Textron's offer values Arctic Cat at $247 million plus the assumption of all the company's debt.


Quote:What this means if you own an Arctic Cat quad? Probably nothing. Arctic Cat snowmobile and ATV sales have been flat just like all the other major manufacturers and they were forced to sell out. There hasn't been any discussion that I'm aware of where they would cease to make ATV's and snowmobiles.

This is a sign of the times, we just have to hope that Textron bought Arctic Cat to make money from that product line and the popular name.

I haven't been watching the Arctic Cat ATV product line for many years, I didn't even realize they were still pushing traditional ATV's. Maybe they should advertise the ATV lineup better.
