BENSALEM, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces an investigation on behalf of investors of Polaris Industries, Inc. (“Polaris” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PII) concerning the Company and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.
Polaris, together with its subsidiaries, designs, engineers, manufactures, and markets off-road vehicles, snowmobiles, motorcycles, and on-road vehicles in the United States, Canada, Western Europe, Australia, and Mexico. On July 23, 2015, Polaris issued a recall for the Company’s model-year 2016 Youth RZR off-highway vehicle, citing fire hazards. Three other recalls of the Company’s RZR vehicles followed—in October 2015, December 2015, and April 2016—affecting more than 160,000 RZR vehicles of various model years.
The investigation concerns whether the Company misled investors concerning the impact of the recalls on the Company’s future revenues and profitability. And, on September 12, 2016, pre-market, Polaris issued a press release announcing that the Company was lowering its full-year 2016 earnings guidance to the range of $3.30 to $3.80 per diluted share. The Company attributed the lowered guidance to the impact of RZR thermal-related problems, citing, in part, the Company’s inability “to sufficiently validate the initially identified RZR Turbo recall repair, necessitating a more complex and expensive repair solution.” On this news, Polaris stock fell $4.05, or 5.01%, to close at $76.79 on September 12, 2016.
