Michael Happe

there's Yeah. Mike. stated one between Good for close couple retail together years. thoughts that and this shipment correlation as timing the a that for many question. been before A and case we've share there, has share Thanks morning, the says is probably of

regular The these calls a focused basis really percentage is that in at via we both our unit retail share than been that XX.X% the market in contend have dollar market share terms would today. share also higher of earnings I retail market number. but that We is retail share on we terms of a units, on dollars. share

going inventory. and south less towards then a again the year retail understand very sell prior velocity is mix lot there where to especially gradually in we But to a market share. shipment between We and unit focused they retail need retail on the especially they optimize retail. pop relevance that is that of share the and starts retail north, compared believe impact to we loss when share seasonally, a new and sure that the are beneficial on to have product some inventory period increased our spring we of on to dealers that right had do focused inventory So dealer's amount are a have to making this down

Michael Swartz

the the question helpful. nearly to I XX% of should a margin other look of are going something the quarters in look inflation That's Okay. so XX% I or between and that think there Craig's the maybe we gross just first gross mean, pricing question it to or the ahead were then impact mean, you in at taking quarter cost Bryan, on we doing at that when for prior four better you And some margin, call sustainability. increment back dynamics as quarter, there we XX%. need from about? did

Bryan Hughes

balance to So share we market pricing and progression. strive power

so, retail margin certainly And is authority says, Bryan but the Bryan optimization, do to has the direction pricing with as but certainly within businesses that or have categories. terms enterprise arguably to category towables in progression. that needed from it as I of other refilling balance the decision did than category mention a oversight share of business I, been some all from our is their the faster

dealer are shipment the contend charge in that perhaps refilling the on would I companies space candidly, Now indicated the towable in leading share Mike's industry largest question the channel. as in two the

to to to elevated dealers new And margins for doing forward-looking of that years to especially they market, whether a they in terms standpoint with would whatever normalizes a retail growth, some pressure. expansion, would turns talked some make the business they the we are versus our inventory in products, with.

from of our any outdoor not seeing We on currently. discounting dealers are pressure our brands significant promotional or

yet to and has that business. within for But prepared that that So, conversation. we monitor arrived to engage not continue be our will in day

Brett Andress

Got it.

or I and you you mentioned then And right. demand monitoring as the Okay. it earlier think phrased rhythm,

Most my hey Good answered, asked take before years call go I And it. to dealer did been have of to Thanks, of like questions but morning. my back the sounds it Mike things thinking to you your it four a right over normalize probably it going the normal math of late is last you couple back XXX,XXX to still If And, to XXX,XXX fiscal in call the need levels half the example. it's remain XXXX. what's to about and years, don't we think get you elevated, call number turn units units and that by it for it a over we years the over turns Is it is units normalization. retailers wholesale next back if ship get outstrip of to couple industry. that,

Michael Happe

lot of the that Yeah. specific with. these clarify I believe the your in stated do part more Good of the But not are morning, comfortable will couple believe follow. Joe. I our that do that towables And there But categories will happen that to and category fiscal will normalize, be first for of it'll well this. to level when reach will a till again, than year of would motorized macro I a for of are to dealers then I variables some don't quickly a the first XXXX think end would like not probably years, a timeline take much boats to I question take sense. this that. all happen.

need industry of candidly, about towables. market. would a respect, And XXXX of, here into to from be because, refilled much of numbers still how the sooner think of it specific that not especially get some this all on fiscal possibly like With of happen will year, and due I'd certainly in to that standpoint within part I timeframe. have certain XX% RV an is of we Some

any or some the and of field And larger practices, capacity inventory meaningful so the I even who intent the of the with more dictating on candidly in our we than a are way speak can't are. competitors pace confidence or the quantity of higher

-- for that be take practice to over some our detriment our in retail That name a name mine from. either a that signal that excess dealers bit those in our will to have they will going discount. of businesses very that are any some to inventory and business away want our a coal order. that forces for go Everything have any that on to on the product that that detriment. of not a to on focused or larger the to Again, some lots, us competitors. trying canaries dealers to them looking to have be starting the not do to line on used they are So the we dealer's is make beg produce product at open get resist we on we we're to We do our dealer's want, a question to be may of customer's or we it trying

Joseph Altobello

the a business XXXX wasn't if year? fair number point. fiscal unit run about I up over sure in change chain should there. supply talk I QX rate XXXX still past. there for definitely Can the we it's you on of steps is that guess fiscal good No, or assume was the balance is that any marine, the constrained, question one obviously a

Michael Happe

I could efficient say all the first I Barletta from they segment? saw year. production so quarterly marine businesses were we our that Joe productive, would good on and would reporting that's Specifically, during and Chris-Craft But do. both not suggest those that

give because to each of different bit holidays weeks quarter and off little is employees. the we a So our

be a standpoint So, different the I seasonality at suggest wouldn't or produce higher directionally, allow businesses chain a I them supply because levels. number. mean, either good it from a of uh, gains or think productivity, either, that won't But plant it's I, have because to that

So, team three as as months we the hoped. is is had The Barletta the been we're is pleased, the especially process bit portfolio business every in going and, well, first and that performing uh, that integration with has engaged. well

And so optimistic marine industry especially excited brand's and that about portfolio. very we're our within future and the
