The Company’s re-entry into the market for portable generators four years ago has also contributed to significant growth and has positioned the Generac brand as the market leader today. Furthermore, the Magnum Products acquisition in the fourth quarter of 2011 has expanded the Company’s share of its commercial and industrial markets as well as diversified the end markets it serves. Although early in its efforts, the Company has made significant investments in distribution and product development to support growth in Latin America and other international markets which is expected to position Generac for future growth.
Generac expects to release its full third-quarter financial results before the market opens on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, and management will hold its customary call that morning to discuss further details on financial results for third quarter and the outlook for full-year 2012. The Company will also be hosting an Investor Day on November 8, 2012.
