“As we close out another year navigating global challenges, we are grateful for the significant growth achieved by our dedicated management team and expanding dealership network. Last year at this time, we began to prove the thesis that motorcycle dealership consolidation would result in the same benefits of scale realized in similar automotive dealer consolidations. We believed that we would see better-operating results driven by professional management, branding and marketing opportunities, and volume purchasing. With 8 dealerships now acquired, Motos America is emerging as a trusted name in the luxury European motorcycle market. We will continue to execute our disruptive consolidation model throughout the coming years, a significant milestone in our pursuit of building long-term shareholder value,” stated Motos America CEO, Vance Harrison.
In the first quarter of 2022, the Company completed its initial capital raise through 29 private investors to launch its consolidation strategy, commencing with the acquisition of Bloodworth Motorsports in Nashville TN, as well as three dealerships in Oregon, BMW Motorcycles of Portland, BMW Motorcycles of Eugene and Triumph Portland.
In January, the Company announced the appointment of Kris Odwarka as President, a seasoned executive with over 29 years experience in European motorcycle and automotive manufacturing.

In July, the Company announced the official award of an open-point BMW motorcycle dealership to be located in Roswell, Ga., a suburb of Atlanta.

Additionally, on July 15, 2022, the Company announced its effective ticker change to MTAM in conjunction with a 1:300 reverse split of Common Voting Shares.

The Company will continue to execute its consolidation strategy with additional acquisition targets currently in various stages of negotiation. The Company expects its dealership network to continue to grow significantly in 2023.
“I would like to express my deep appreciation for all our valued stockholders.
