By Jason Carr

“Motorcycle portion disappoints due to elevated termination rates, but sales margin expands less than we would expect even after normalizing for various moving parts… …Combined with much higher opex & significantly lowered midterm outlook, we value motorcycle portion at a fraction of what we previously did. We expect Wholesale acquisition to be accretive to RMBL shareholders, but on a much longer timeframe than what management has communicated. Downgrading shares to Hold, from Buy.”
