Race Winning Brands Acquires CV4

March 05, 2019

MENTOR, Ohio (March 5, 2019) – Race Winning Brands, Inc. acquired the assets of CV4 which will
become a part of its Wiseco Performance Products division, a cornerstone of Race Winning Brands’
portfolio of companies.

CV4 is a prominent brand in the powersports market, supplying thermal management products such as
high-temperature precision-fit silicone radiator hose kits, high pressure radiator caps, fuel tank heat
shields, and components to race teams and enthusiasts worldwide.

With over 75 years in the powersports business, Wiseco is the world leader in manufacturing high
performance forged pistons and engine components for the motorcycle, automotive performance, ATV,
snowmobile, personal watercraft, and outboard marine markets.

“CV4 is an excellent fit for the Wiseco product line and we’re proud to make their products available to our
customers,” explained Wiseco Director of Powersports Scott Highland. “CV4’s quality and performance
has made them the top choice for professional teams and weekend racers, the same group we aim to
serve every day at Wiseco.”

“We’re excited for the future of CV4,” said Xceldyne Group President Corey Smith. “As we shift our focus
and engineering strategy to titanium valves and valvetrain components, this becomes a win-win for both
companies. It’s our position that CV4 will be best served by a company with a long-established presence
in the powersports market. We believe that Wiseco Performance Products will represent the brand with
the same passion and level of service that it was built upon.”
