Longtime Minnesota snowmobile maker Arctic Cat sold for $247 million


January 26, 2017

Long-struggling Minneapolis-based Arctic Cat is being purchased by Textron Inc. for $247 million in cash, a consolidation coming at a time when sales of all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles have been under pressure, company officials announced Wednesday.

The sale to Rhode Island-based Textron, a conglomerate whose products include helicopters and golf carts, follows extended turnaround efforts by the Minnesota company that failed to yield consistent profits or greatly excite consumers with new models.
