Item 7.01.                                          Regulation FD Disclosure.


Proposed Offering of Senior Notes


In a preliminary offering memorandum to be distributed to prospective investors in connection with the proposed private offering described under Item 8.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, Generac Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) intends to disclose certain information to such prospective investors. Pursuant to Regulation FD, the Company is furnishing such information attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1. This information supplements previously reported information.


The information included under this Item, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


Some of the statements contained in this information are forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, including, in particular, statements about the Company’s plans, strategies, prospects, estimated results and industry estimates. These statements identify prospective information and may include words such as such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “plan,” “intend,” “believe,” “confident,” “may,” “should,” “can have,” “likely,” “future” and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of the timing or nature of future operating or financial performance or other events.


Forward-looking statements give the Company’s current expectations and projections relating to the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, plans, objectives, future performance and business. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict.


Any forward-looking statement made by the Company speaks only as of the date of such statement. Factors or events that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company to predict all of them. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
