Marzocchi Mountain Bike Suspension Sold To Fox


After the failure of it's parent company, Marzocchi's mountain bike product line looked like it was going to be lost, despite it being profitable... however a press release has confirmed that Fox have stepped in and made a purchase.

But, don't get too excited, because while it's all official... it's also vague as fuck (that's a technical term)... specifically from the release "Fox Factory Holding Corp. today announced, that through certain of its subsidiaries, it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire certain specified assets of Marzocchi's mountain bike product lines"... err in English it means Marzocchi will live, but not as we know it today.

Media release begins...

Fox Factory Holding Corp. today announced, that through certain of its subsidiaries, it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire certain specified assets of Marzocchi's mountain bike product lines. The Marzocchi business designs and manufactures motor bike and mountain bike suspension products. FOX expects the transaction to close in Q4 2015 and it is subject to customary closing conditions and is not expected to have a material impact on its anticipated financial results in either fiscal 2015 or 2016.

"We are excited to announce the agreement to acquire certain assets of the Marzocchi mountain bike product lines, which we believe is a significant opportunity for FOX to further expand the penetration of our bike suspension products across more price points," stated Larry L. Enterline, FOX's Chief Executive Officer. "The Marzocchi team has a long history of performance suspension experience and we believe that this highly complementary transaction will allow for the increased growth of the Marzocchi brand worldwide. We expect this transaction will bring together and strengthen two highly complementary product lines and allow for FOX to leverage its marketing, engineering, distribution, and supply chain resources to drive increased top-line growth and profitability."

FOX expects to report fiscal third quarter 2015 earnings results in early November and plans to provide additional financial and transactional details at that time.
