Erwin Hymer Group (EHG) is currently reviewing the business of Erwin Hymer Group North America (EHG NA). An initial investigation has shown irregularities in the company’s reporting. EHG has initiated a detailed audit procedure involving external auditors. EHG is acting in accordance with its zero tolerance policy and is committed to a full and complete investigation. As the investigation is ongoing EHG will not comment further on the details.

While the matter is investigated, several managers of EHG NA have been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. As an immediate measure Erwin Hymer Group deployed management to support the ongoing operations of EHG NA and the external investigation. EHG NA’s focus on its products, business partners and customers remains unchanged.

Thor Industries has announced that it has received all requisite regulatory approvals for its purchase of EHG. Thor Industries expects that the purchase will be completed within the company's fiscal third quarter ending April 30, 2019. Due to the ongoing investigation, Thor Industries and EHG’s selling shareholders are finalizing discussions to exclude EHG's North American operations from Thor's purchase of EHG.
