  • On August 17, 2012, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of Ready2Ride, Inc., the first-to-market and leading provider of aftermarket fitment data to the powersports industry. The Company leveraged this data in its February 2013 release of AccessorySmartâ„¢, a fitment driven parts lookup solution, which won a Nifty 50 Award at the powersports industry's largest trade show.  
  • On November 28, 2012, the Company acquired the assets of the retail division of 50 Below Sales & Marketing, Inc., a leading provider of eCommerce websites to the powersports, automotive tire and wheel and durable medical equipment industries.

  • On March 13, 2013, the Company announced that it entered into agreements with various accredited investors in a private placement of 3.2 million shares ($4.8 million) of its common stock at a purchase price of $1.50 per share. The Company also issued warrants to purchase 1.1 million shares, all but 214,000 of which have been exercised to date. The funds raised in the private placement were used to pay down a substantial portion of the Company's outstanding debt.  
  • On April 25, 2013, the Company announced that it closed new senior secured credit facilities with Silicon Valley Bank. The facilities include a $4.5 million term loan and a $3.0 million revolving credit facility. The proceeds from the transaction were used to pay down the remaining portion of the Company's outstanding debt with Fifth Third Bank and with a shareholder.
