On November 12, 2012, the Board of Directors of Arctic Cat Inc. (the "Company") elected Stanley A. Askren and Joseph F.

He is also a director of Armstrong World Industries, Inc., a global leader in the design and manufacture of floors and ceilings. Mr. Askren has worked for HNI Corporation for 20 years and previously served as Vice President of Marketing and Executive Vice President and President of HNI Corporation's hearth products operating segment. He also worked in HNI Corporation's office furniture operating segment as a Group Vice President of The HON Company and President of Allsteel Inc., two of HNI Corporation's office furniture subsidiaries. Mr. Askren has also served as the Vice President of Human Resources and an Executive Vice President of HNI Corporation.

Mr. Puishys, 54, has served as the Chief Executive Officer and President and a director of Apogee Enterprises, Inc., a value-added glass products and services company, since August 2011. Prior to joining Apogee Enterprises, Mr. Puishys served in various leadership positions at Honeywell International, Inc., a Fortune 100 diversified technology and manufacturing company, for over 32 years. He served as President of Honeywell Environment & Combustion Controls from 2008 to 2011; President of Honeywell Building Solutions from 2004 to 2008; President of Bendix Friction Materials from 2002 to 2004; Vice President and General Manager of Garrett Engine Boosting Systems from 2000 to 2002; Vice President and General Manager, Aftermarket, Allied Signal Turbo Charging Systems from 1996 to 2000; Vice President, Logistics, Allied Signal Automotive Products Group from 1992 to 1996; and various accounting and financial positions from 1979 to 1992.
