Arctic Cat Reports Fiscal 2012 Results

Business Line Results

“Snowmobile sales in fiscal 2012 benefitted from the tremendous enthusiasm generated by the largest introduction of new models in Arctic Cat’s history,” said Jordan. Arctic Cat had five of the top 10-selling snowmobile models for the 2012 model year. In addition, two of Arctic Cat’s 2012 sleds were named snowmobile of the year – the XF1100 Turbo Sno Pro ® and the F1100 Turbo Sno Pro.

In the 2012 fourth quarter, Arctic Cat’s snowmobile sales were a negative $6.8 million, primarily due to sales incentives, versus negative sales of $4.5 million in the prior-year quarter. Full-year snowmobile sales rose 38 percent to $250.4 million compared to $182.0 million last fiscal year. Sales for the full year were driven by Arctic Cat’s extensive new 2012 model line-up, with 23 all-new snowmobiles representing 75 percent of the company’s offerings. In addition to producing the world’s fastest snowmobiles, Arctic Cat’s 2012 models featured two new chassis – the ProCross™ performance and ProClimb™ mountain platforms – as well as new suspension, drive and braking technologies.

Added Jordan, “We are continuing to build on our new chassis platforms with exciting new sleds for the 2013 model year. Looking ahead, we also remain committed to investing in research and development, in order to remain an industry innovation leader and in anticipation of manufacturing our own snowmobile engines.”

Among the new 2013 model year snowmobiles introduced to dealers in March 2012 are the ProCross F Sno Pro RR (race replica) sled that features high-performance trail racing suspension and styling. Also new is the Procross XF CrossTour, a crossover model that combines the best of snowmobile touring, trail and deep-snow capabilities. The CrossTour, available in either the 800 2-stroke or the 1100 turbo and non-turbo 4-stroke engine, offers riders trail performance and touring comfort with its wide ski stance, ample storage and a heavy-duty rear bumper that easily accepts accessories, such as an optional passenger seat. Arctic Cat’s ProClimb M Series mountain snowmobiles also received further enhancements to performance and handling. The turbocharged M1100 four-stroke mountain model, with 177 horsepower, remains the industry’s most powerful production engine available to date.
