Texas-based powersports and watercraft manufacturer plans to fund further growth through an IPO.

The Massimo Group, a manufacturer, importer, and distributor of powersports and marine products, has filed with the SEC to raise up to $25 million through an initial public offering. Massimo plans to list on the NASDAQ under the symbol MAMO. Pricing terms and start date for the IPO have not been disclosed.

Founded in 2009, Massimo is based in Garland, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. The company’s lineups include a wide variety of machinery, from side-by-sides, motorcycles, ATVs, and golf carts to Jeep-like youth vehicles and pontoon boats. Massimo’s powersports products are assembled and tested in America, in a 325,000-square-foot facility in Garland, through a partnership with Chinese manufacturer Linhai. Its American distribution network encompasses more than 600 dealers, and the company logged $86 million in revenue for a 12-month period ending on December 31, 2022. (For perspective, consider that industry giant Polaris had revenue of nearly $8.6 billion in the same period.)

What does this mean for the red-hot side-by-side market? Our knee-jerk guess concerns growth: Massimo products are budget-oriented, sold through traditional powersports stores but also vendors like Walmart and Tractor Supply. Finding a Massimo machine to purchase isn’t a problem for much of the country; the company’s side-by-sides are also known for being a durable and reliable value. Vehicle manufacturers in similar positions have traditionally sought extra funding in order to improve customer service and after-sales support—forums indicate Massimo could do better there—and to fund forward-looking R&D.

Long story short: If we’re lucky, your average $8,000 Tractor Supply side-by-side is on its way to being a little better engineered and a little better supported. Fingers crossed.
