Issue Open Letter to Stockholders Detailing Concerns With Company’s Poor Shareholder Return and Highly Deficient Governance
IRVING, TX – March 15, 2023 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – William Coulter and Mark Tkach, who together own approximately 32.5% of the outstanding Class B shares of common stock of RumbleOn, Inc. (“RumbleOn” or the “Company”), today issued an open letter to the Company’s stockholders. Mr. Coulter and Mr. Tkach announced that they have nominated five highly qualified candidates for three Board seats that will be up for election to the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”) at its 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

Over the summer and fall of 2022, the Company’s inventory level and its SG&A/revenue ratio each rose sharply.
