"Our fiscal second quarter, similar to the prior-year period, presented a challenging operating environment as seasonally lower retail demand and cautious dealer sentiment impacted our results," said Bob Martin, President and CEO in a news release. "As macro conditions continue to pressure the top-line, our teams proactively navigated through the retail offseason to improve the competitive positioning of our operating companies and independent dealer partners.

"Notably, we continued to work with our North American independent dealer partners to closely match wholesale production with the pace of retail sales and we enacted promotional programs to assist independent dealers in moving prior-model-year units and stimulate retail demand. With the rapid increase in interest rates over the past year, dealers face elevated floorplan financing costs that have put substantial pressure on their operations.

"As a result, we currently believe that even though the levels and mix of channel inventory are well-positioned ahead of the retail selling season, dealers will remain focused on limiting inventory levels as they manage interest expense."
