After the tragic death of the company’s founding partners, US Highland, a promising new US motorcycle company, was going nowhere. In January, it was announced the plant was closing while the search went on for funding to continue operations. There are some new developments.
It seems US Highland had an IPO, (UHLN.PK) on the OTC. Another hot penny stock.
A new Director has been appointed, Robert Harris, who has a varied background in both the automotive and financial fields, most recently with St. James International, an independent investment consultancy firm headquartered in Malaga Spain. Prior to that, he was a fight promoter, which appears to be a relevant detail.
From 2005 to 2007, Mr. Harris founded, established and created a sports entertainment organization called Elite Fighting Federation Ltd. where he served as president. Focusing on the promotion of the mixed martial arts, he built and maintained the sports entertainment company. Mr. Harris has extensive experience building relationships with competitors, managers, corporate partners and provincial Athletic Commissions. Since its inception, Mr. Harris has succeeded in creating strong brand awareness for Elite and has produced multiple sold-out events, all of which have accomplished PPV broadcasts throughout Canada and the USA.
More interesting than Harris is the name of the new CEO/CFO, it’s John R. Fitzpatrick, III. If the name doesn’t immediately ring a bell, he is the former President and CEO of the Gilroy Indian Motorcycle Company, one of several ill-fated attempts to bring back the Indian brand.
Mr. Fitzpatrick left Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) to become the Vice President of Strategy at the reformation of Indian Motorcycles in Gilroy, California and was promoted to president and chief executive officer shortly after joining the company.
Both of these appointments took place on September 20, 2011. Just a few weeks later, they sponsored a UFC fight on October 8th in Houston, Texas. Did any of you see that fight? If so, do you remember any reference to US Highland?
UHLN – US Highland Inc.
UHLN is a premier developer and manufacturer of high performance single cylinder and V-twin powertrains and motorcycles. US Highlands are built from the bottom up with the best parts to deliver the most powerful, dependable and breathtaking power sports experience possible.
UHLN is a US based designer and manufacturer of high performance, premium quality powertrains and motorcycles. Vroom Vroom!!! Hopefully this little beauty will crank the engine on the profit machine as well.
Pro Motocross, bike enthusiasts, and adrenaline junkies alike will be fully “gaga” for UHLN‘s line of custom-built bikes. UHLN combines Swedish engineering with American power and production.
The performance motorsports is a billion dollar industry.
UHLN has remarkable V twin engines as well as single piston engines ranging from 350 cc to 950 cc and have a 1050 cc in development. That’s some fast stuff, but there’s a lot more.
UHLN is making sure that their bikes come packed with the most technologically advanced specs with an electric-start motor and engine controlled by a very elaborate brain with a large memory. From the first time this bike is started, it remembers everything it does: rpm, temperature, and even G-Forces created by hard landings. Company engineers will be able to download this info right from the bike itself and get detailed history. Eventually, this bike may be able to connect to the Internet!
Now that’s really incredible technology that could deliver an adrenaline-producing, and even potentially life-saving, truly personalized custom biking experience.
UHLN power plants provide unparalleled power for the weight. When it comes to more speed, engineers are always trying to reduce weight and increase power. UHLN engineers have also developed the most versatile transmission in the field. This transmission is adjustable to the riders style and the conditions of the day.
These are amazing features! I spoke with a sponsored motocross guy to see what he thought, and he said “it was a huge deal and sales should be massive for UHLN’s products!”
Given the profitability of the motorcycle industry, UHLN’s major “made in the USA” competitive advantage, AND their one of a kind cutting-edge technologies. UHLN is going to be a HUGE seller and could turn into a very profitable company. At the very least, a Hot short-term trading opportunity.
UHLN announced just last week that they have appointed a major asset to their company by the addition of Steve “Posie” Pfaff. The Pfaff-man has over thirty-five years of experience dealing with companies such as Harley-Davidson Motorcycles and other top names.
Chuck Sun, a former professional Motocross racing Champion and current AMA Hall of Famer tested one these bad boys out and stated “it was almost TOO FAST to fit on a motocross track!” You can read about that, and a great article that really shows you what UHLN is all about right here: http://www.ushighland.com/2010MarchDirtBike.pdf
Dirt Bike Magazine says: “UHLN‘s single-cylinder engines are unlike anything else out there!”
Check out UHLN‘s detailed product offering here: http://www.ushighland.com/2010USHighlandBrochure.pdf
UHLN‘s new OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) program makes these world class powertrains, with their HUGE competitive advantage of being US Built available for the first time EVER!
When you think of real bikers, one of the first things you think of (besides violence, chains, beers and hot chicks) is patriotism. You’d be hard pressed to find a more patriotic group than bikers, and UHLN’s status of being “Made in the USA” offers a tremendous competitive advantage!
As UHLN begins to ramp up operations at the start of 2012 with the “Who’s Who” in the motorcycle industry on their team, this is literally only the beginning for UHLN. In addition to engineering expertise it also takes the right CEO to lead a company forward. UHLN‘s new CEO looks like he may be the guy to get this done.
With this all-star behind the wheel, it is highly possible UHLN could be headed for huge things. But why now? Because UHLN announced Monday that they may be landing a $30 MILLION client!
You’ve got to read this news:
UHLN said that it is in the final design stages on an engine for a customer that represents an estimated $30 million sales contract over the next three years. John R. Fitzpatrick, President and CEO of US Highland, described it as an exciting development opportunity for UHLN and its shareholders.
Fitzpatrick said that for UHLN to be able to come out of the starting gates with this sizeable business opportunity is very unique and this is a testament to the vast amount of development work that has gone on before its arrival. Fitzpatrick also said that the company is just executing on a relationship that was well established and underway for over a year.
The opportunity will allow UHLN to enter 2012 well positioned to deliver game changing technology to an industry starving for advanced technology. Robert Harris, Chairman of US Highland, said that this is the first of the several sales contract opportunities that are imminent and UHLN is placing a great deal of its top resources and priorities on the project and the results reflect the company’s ability to deliver on promises.
Recently, UHLN also boosted its management by appointing Posie Pfaff as Director of PowerTrain Development. Pfaff has more than three decades of practical, hands on field experience in machining, fabrication and design with Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Chairman Harris said that if you want a world class powertrain, you need world class talent to make it happen and Pfaff is a virtual complete team of experience and capability. Harris added that Pfaff’s rare talent set adds to UHLN’s growing dream team of expert management. The appointment of Pfaff comes as UHLN looks to build its operations.
Donald Trump said he never knew anyone who was really good at something, who did not have a big ego. With the background of UHLN’s management, it’s not surprising to see the confidence.
According to a recent filing made by UHLN, the company did not generate any revenue for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011. The company’s net loss for the three-month period was $193,477, down from $447,711 reported for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011.
UHLN is a tiny company, under 50 cents with a market valuation of under $10 million.
Do you know what a $30 million contract could do for the share price of a company that is currently valued so low? It could cause an incredible price explosion!
It’s obvious some traders found out about the news from the huge increase in volume. There was some profit taking as sellers likely booked profits since UHLN has been climbing for a little while now. However, UHLN held strong Monday, outperformed the market, and closed at the high of the day! There is a TON of buzz for UHLN on-line, traders are talking about them in a big way. I think Monday’s volume explosion is going to put UHLN and their big news announcement on a lot of radars tonight, and we may see a bigger day tomorrow than we saw Monday for UHLN!
There is NO Hotter penny stock trade for tomorrow in the Penny markets than UHLN.
UHLN just had incredibly positive news. $30 million contract potential from an under $10 million company!! I mean that is HUGE. We had a volume explosion that ended with a close at the high of the day. Nothing is more bullish for the next day, than a close at the high. Plus UHLN has the X-Factor which is a ton of buzz. Search around the internet yourself and you’ll hear an insane amount of chatter for UHLN.
This stock is heating up, and should be at the top of your watch list for tomorrow’s trading action. Every situation is different, but this is certainly an interesting way to get the company back in the motorcycle business. This could be a story worth watching.
