  14. Harley-Davidson - Lehman Trikes • 2008 – Three year exclusive supply agreement for the Tri Glide, prices renegotiated annually • Lehman must maintain capacity to supply Harley orders • Harley currently selling “all the Tri Glides they can get”

  15. Harley-Davidson’s Expectations • Low cost, low risk entry into a new market segment • Non-union production shop • Satisfied enough to launch Street Glide Trike for 2010 • Allows a ‘wait & see’ strategy for next move

  16. Lehman Trike’s Expectations • The Harley agreement will legitimize the trike segment • The agreement is providing the cash flow & critical mass for Lehman to grow even during the recession • Lehman continues to talk to other major motorcycle manufacturers but now with the Harley seal of approval • Lehman continues product development with the 2009 launch of the Victory Cross Bow

  17. The Future For Lehman • Lehman’s product sales mix now favors the ‘Harley side’ • Will that reverse or become more balanced as the recession ends? • Will the Harley agreement really legitimize and grow the three-wheel market? • Can Lehman capitalize on the Harley agreement to sign supply agreements with other manufacturers? • Has Lehman already become overly dependant on the Harley agreement?

  18. The Future For Harley • With Harley’s ongoing financial difficulties are they at all focused on the developments in the trike market? • Should Harley acquire Lehman to establish a non-union bridgehead? • Will Harley use the Lehman agreement with their unions to negotiate more favorable terms? • Will the new management’s new strategies include the trikes?

  19. Epilogue for Harley-Davidson • Q3 2009 sales down 21% net income down 84% • Announced “go forward” strategy • Discontinue Buell line, divest MV Augusta business • Announced “two path” study of York, PA factory • Major union concessions or relocate plant to Kentucky

  20. Epilogue for Harley-Davidson • Dec. 3, 2009 announced a new union agreement • Job cuts of 50% from 1950 hourly to 750 & 250 “casual” workers • Savings of $150 million per year • Allows York to resize & become more flexible • Job classifications cut from 60 down to 5 allowing workers to do more & significantly different tasks

  21. Epilogue for Lehman Trikes • Jan. 16, 2010 H-D announced Lehman will no longer assemble their trikes after 2010. • H-D announced moving trike assembly to York, PA plant. • Can Lehman effectively restructure to reflect loss of over half their volume? • Will economic recovery occur in time to revitalize sales on the “Lehman Side”?
