If cat doesn't prove to be a seller and doesn't move the needle in the market, I could see Textron pulling the pin, as to guys that are saying that the Textron name doesn't mean anything, and or doesn't ring a bell, down south in the UTV market, everyone who rides down there knows who Textron is.
Textron has some huge contracts with the goverment and DOD as well, my father who works for the DOD has a sneeking suspicion that they as in Textron will be trying to get into the UTV game with the government for the special forces vehicles and other things that the government uses UTVS for. Polaris holds that contract currently, and is doing well with it, however with Textron holding other contracts they have the leg up on the table when push comes to shove.
I'd hate to see Cat go away in snowmobiles, but I have to be honest, I wouldn't be one bit shocked. It's all about the profit and the dollar.
