Arctic Cat snowmobile sales, through the third quarter of 2006, are fairly level, totaling $238.0 million compared to $241.6 million during the same period last year.
“Snowmobile sales are tied to snow conditions,” stated Christopher A. Twomey, Arctic Cat’s chairman and chief executive officer. “When it snows, our customers buy sleds. While the market for snowmobiles remains strong among enthusiasts, this industry remains challenged by mild winter-weather conditions in key regions.”
Overall company-wide, net sales grew 9 percent year-to-date, with ATV sales up 20 percent, despite a â€œsoftâ€ ATV market.
