American Suzuki Motor Corporation Announces December 2012 Automobile Sales Of 1,946 Units

Year-over-year decline of 620 units driven by decrease in total inventory as company's remaining U.S. automobiles are allocated to auto dealers

BREA, Calif., Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) reported today December 2012 automobile sales of 1,946 units, a 620 unit decline compared to the same period last year. The results were attributed to a decrease in available inventory as the company allocates its remaining automobiles in the U.S. to retail auto dealerships.

"Now is a great time to purchase a Suzuki: 98% of Suzuki auto dealers have confirmed they will remain parts and continued service locations, and many are offering attractive financing options and incentives," said M. Freddie Reiss, Chief Restructuring Officer for American Suzuki Motor Corporation.

A final shipment of 2,500 vehicles is being shipped from Japan this month and will be distributed to auto dealers around the country.

Full-year 2012 auto sales declined 5% compared with 2011, with total vehicle sales of 25,358 units.

ASMC announced plans on November 5, 2012 to realign its business to focus on the long-term growth of its Motorcycles/ATV and Marine divisions and to wind down and discontinue new automobile sales in the continental U.S. ASMC will, however, continue to honor all automobile warranties according to their terms, including the warranties of newly purchased vehicles.

In fact, 215 of ASMC's 219 U.S. automotive dealers have agreed to the terms of the company's Dealer Settlement Agreement to help provide automobile parts and service without interruption after the company's restructuring. This number includes all of the top 50 U.S. dealers and represents more than 98% of the total volume of ASMC's continental U.S. automobile market.

Additional information regarding ASMC's business realignment under Chapter 11 can be found at the Company's website, www.suzuki.com or via an information hotline at 1-877-465-4819.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
