20-14 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”
20-15 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
20-16 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
20-17 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?
20-18 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?
20-19 Epilogue for Harley-Davidson Q 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
20-20 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
20-21 Epilogue for Lehman Trikes Jan. 16, 2010 H-D announced Lehman will no longer assemble their trikes after 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”?
