“During the past year we have continued to enhance our strategy and technology stack, paving the road for RumbleOn to participate in a tremendous share of powersport transactions, with improved unit economics. Our ‘buy direct from consumers’ strategy and our new B2B redistribution capabilities through DealerDirect means supply imbalances that would be headwinds for other business models, are tailwinds for RumbleOn,” said Marshall Chesrown, Chief Executive Offer. “With our pending business combination with RideNow, we are creating the only omnichannel solution in the powersports industry - offering an unparalleled customer experience for outdoor enthusiasts across the country. RideNow's significant physical retail platform provides another piece of a 'bricks and clicks' strategy for RumbleOn, enabling us to reach consumers wherever and most important however they want to shop, whether online, offline, or both.”

“RumbleOn is making powersport ownership accessible to everyone - from the first time rider to the life-long enthusiast - and we are thrilled to give consumers the easiest and most transparent process to Buy, Sell, Trade or Finance available in Powersports today. We have high ambitions and are excited about the next chapter for RumbleOn,” concluded Chesrown.
