Winnebago Acquiring Newmar Winnebago Industries has entered into a defini- tive agreement to acquire Newmar Corp. for approx- imately $344 million. The privately-owned Newmar manufactures pre- mium Class A luxury, diesel and gas, and Super C motorhomes. It generated revenues of $661 million as of June 2019. "Newmar's dedication to manufacturing pre- mium, high-end motorhomes makes it a natural fit with our portfolio of leading out- door lifestyle brands and we look forward to welcoming Newmar to the Winnebago Industries family," said Winnebago Industries President and CEO Michael Happe. "The acquisition of Newmar aligns with our strategy to strengthen and reenergize our motorized business by enhancing our position and capabilities in the motorhome market and building on the progress we have made driving growth and innovation across our offerings." Newmar President Matthew Miller said, "Winnebago Industries has a deep heritage in the RV industry, and we are excited about the opportunity to join its portfolio of premium outdoor lifestyle brands. We look forward to working with the Winnebago Industries team to further enhance our growth trajectory, share best practices across our business, and continue delivering an incomparable product experience for our dealers and customers." Following the close of the transaction, Newmar will operate as a distinct business unit within Winnebago Industries with its headquarters and manufacturing facilities remaining in Nappanee, Ind. Miller will continue to lead the Newmar business post- closing as its president. Lerman Enterprises Acquires Majority Stake in NeXus RV A & F Realty, a subsidiary of Lerman Enterprises, has acquired a majority share interest in NeXus RV. A purchase price was not disclosed. "We are excited to increase our investment with NeXus RV," said Ted Lerman, CEO of Lerman Enterprises. "Our research showed the NeXus RV products are well-received by the dealer network and retail customers. … When a company grows as fast as NeXus RV it requires capital. Now NeXus RV is well funded and can continue their trajectory to be a top-tier manufacturer." Lerman Enterprises has been a shareholder since 2010. "It is great to have the financial support to grow the com- pany," said Dave Middleton, president and co-founder of NeXus RV. "We have doubled our business in 2018 and we now have become the fastest-growing motorhome company in the RV industry. Having Lerman Enterprises believe in the company and our plan will allow us to get to the next level." NeXus RV produces a full range of motorhomes, including Super C's. NeXus RV was started in 2010 by co-owners Claude Donati and Dave Middleton as a factory-direct RV manufacturer, which at the Open House in 2017, switched the business model to sell to the dealer network. Founded in 1947, Lerman Enterprises is a steel processor and distributor in the U.S. with more than 20 facilities in Brazil, Mexico, and the U.S. with annual net revenue more than $1.5 billion.
