HPI Stops Selling to Horizon Hobby

Horizon Hobby announced to its dealers today that it would no longer be able to sell HPI Racing products. Horizon maintains this was an HPI descision, saying, "As a result of HPI’s revision of their distribution alignment, Horizon Hobby will no longer be distributing HPI products. On September 1st, HPI will stop shipping product to Horizon."

That's now three seperate companies (Team Associated and Axial being the other two) that have decided to discontinue their relationships with Horizon Hobby. Kinda hard to not wonder what's going on behind the scenes. No one is talking about the reasons behind the moves, and that has me worried. This doesn't look good for Horizon.
