Collingwood, Ontario, October 19, 2022
The Limestone Boat Company (the “Company”) (TSXV: BOAT | OTCQB: LMSBF) – owner and builder of Aquasport Boats, Limestone® Boats and Boca Bay Boats – announces today that in response to economic conditions and ongoing supply chain challenges, it has made significant staffing realignment and cuts to its operational and management teams in both its Tennessee Manufacturing Facility and Ontario Head Office. Given the current market conditions, these changes will allow the Company to continue to focus on its production, engineering and marketing initiatives and delivering its higher demand, higher margin models to market in greater numbers while increasing the Company’s gross margin, and improving profitability in Q4 and beyond.
“With these changes, the Company is better positioned to weather the market uncertainty and ongoing supply chain challenges, while maximizing the strong demand for our higher margin products from both existing and prospective dealers evident by Company’s order backlog through the 2023 Model Year and beyond,” said Scott Hanson, CEO of the Limestone Boat Company.
