"Performance improved in many parts of our business during the quarter, particularly within our international and PG&A busi- nesses," said Scott Wine, chairman and chief executive officer of Polaris Industries. "The powersports industry remained very com- petitive, and headwinds persist, but we were encouraged by the return to growth in our side-by-side business and continued strength and aggressive share gains for Indian Motor- cycles. In a weak motorcycle industry, Indian continues to demonstrate how a complemen- tary combination of exciting new bikes, strong dealer execution and overall brand momentum can prevail. Dealer engagement is a corporate priority and from profitability to delivery and communications, the consistent progress we are making is augmenting our retail results. 10 • August 14, 2017 • Powersports Business www.PowersportsBusiness.com Wine: 'Performance improved' in Polaris Q2 STOCK MARKET WATCH DEALER FINANCIAL SNAPSHOT JUNE 2017 Same Store Sales for 1,644 CDK Global Recreation dealers were down 1 percent overall in June, in comparison to the same period in 2016.
