THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
Despite the pressure on the global supply chain network, and the recent cybersecurity incident, the Company increased revenues during the third quarter of Fiscal 2023, notably by increasing its production output and the conversion rate of substantially completed units available for retail. The increase in revenues for the three and nine-month periods this fiscal year compared to Fiscal 2022 is explained by the strong consumer demand and supported by the additional available capacity, such as the new Juarez 3 facility dedicated to SSV production. However, the deliveries of PWC and 3WV in the quarter occurred after the peak in the retail season and drove an increase in the dealer network inventory at the end of the third quarter.

Revenues
Revenues increased by $1,121.3 million, or 70.6%, to $2,709.3 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $1,588.0 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily due to a higher wholesale volume of SSV, PWC, 3WV and snowmobile sold and the introduction of the Sea-Doo pontoon. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $51 million.

  • Year-Round Products [6] (47% of Q3-23 revenues): Revenues from Year-Round Products increased by $543.5 million, or 73.8%, to $1,279.8 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $736.3 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in revenues was due to a high volume of SSV and 3WV sold. The higher volume of SSV sold was due to added capacity and improved supply chain. The increase in 3WV volume was the result of the late shipment of model year 2022 which are usually delivered during the second quarter. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $47 million.

  • Seasonal Products [6] (38% of Q3-23 revenues): Revenues from Seasonal Products increased by $583.6 million, or 133.5%, to $1,020.9 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $437.3 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in revenues was primarily attributable to a higher volume of PWC sold due to late shipment of model year 2022 which are usually delivered during the second quarter. The increase was also attributable to a higher volume of snowmobiles sold and the introduction of the Sea-Doo pontoon.

  • Powersports PA&A and OEM Engines [6] (11% of Q3-23 revenues): Revenues from Powersports PA&A and OEM Engines increased by $14.1 million, or 5.0%, to $298.0 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $283.9 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in revenues was driven by favourable pricing and the introduction of the Sea-Doo pontoon.

  • Marine [6] (4% of Q3-23 revenues): Revenues from the Marine segment decreased by $17.5 million, or 12.8%, to $118.8 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $136.3 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to a lower volume of boats sold due to supply chain disruptions and the cybersecurity incident which delayed the new product introductions, partially offset by favourable pricing and a favourable mix of boats sold. The decrease includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $2 million.

[6] The inter-segment transactions are included in the analysis.

North American Retail Sales
The Company's North American retail sales for powersports products increased by 43% [7] for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022 compared to the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase was mainly attributable to PWC and SSV.

  • Year-Round Products: retail sales increased on a percentage basis in the high-twenties range compared to the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. In comparison, the Year-Round Products industry recorded an increase on a percentage basis in the low single-digits over the same period.

  • Seasonal Products: retail sales increased on a percentage basis in the high-seventies range compared to the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. In comparison, the Seasonal Products industry increased on a percentage basis in the low-teens range over the same period while the Company increased on a percentage basis in the low-sixties range when excluding pontoons.

  • Marine: retail sales for Marine products decreased by 47% compared to the three-month period ended October 31, 2021 as a result of lower product availability.

Gross profit 
Gross profit increased by $244.1 million, or 59.4%, to $654.7 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $410.6 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. Gross profit margin percentage decreased by 170 basis points to 24.2% from 25.9% for the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to the favourable volume of SSV and PWC sold and a favourable pricing across all product lines. The decrease in gross profit margin percentage was attributable to higher logistics, commodities and labour costs due to inefficiencies related to supply chain disruptions, idle costs related to the cybersecurity incident and higher sales programs resulting from historical low levels in Fiscal 2022. The decrease was partially offset by higher volume and favourable pricing. The increase in gross profit includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $29 million.

Operating expenses 
Operating expenses increased by $44.8 million, or 19.9%, to $269.9 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $225.1 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in operating expenses was mainly attributable to an increase in selling and marketing and research & development expenses to support future growth and also from continued product investments and higher general and administrative expenses mainly for the modernization of the Company's software infrastructure to support future growth.

Normalized EBITDA [8] 
Normalized EBITDA [8] increased by $236.2 million, or 93.8%, to $487.9 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $251.7 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to higher gross profit partially offset by higher operating expenses.

Net Income
Net income increased by $13.9 million to $141.6 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to the $127.7 million for the three-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to a higher operating income, partially offset by an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation impact on the U.S. denominated long-term debt.

[7] Including Sea-Doo pontoons.

NINE-MONTH PERIOD ENDED OCTOBER 31, 2022

Revenues
Revenues increased by $1,656.7 million, or 31.3%, to $6,957.1 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $5,300.4 million for the corresponding period ended October 31, 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily due to a higher volume of SSV, snowmobile, 3WV and PWC sold, the introduction of Sea-Doo pontoons and favourable pricing across all product lines. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $34 million.

Normalized EBITDA [9] 
Normalized EBITDA [9] increased by $132.6 million, or 12.7%, to $1,178.3 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $1,045.7 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to higher gross profit, partially offset by higher operating expenses.

Net Income
Net income decreased by $84.7 million to $500.3 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2022, compared to $585.0 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2021. The decrease in net income was primarily due to the unfavourable impact of the foreign exchange rate variation on the U.S. denominated long-term debt, partially offset by a higher operating income and lower net financing costs.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
The Company generated net cash flows from operating activities totaling $342.3 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2022 compared to $61.2 million for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2021. The increase was mainly due to favourable changes in working capital, primarily driven by higher provisions.

The Company invested $397 million of its liquidity in capital expenditures to add production capacity and modernize the Company's software infrastructure to support future growth and $209 million in business combinations. The Company also returned $344 million to its shareholders through quarterly dividend payouts and its share repurchase programs.

Dividend
On November 29, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.16 per share for holders of its multiple voting shares and subordinate voting shares. The dividend will be paid on January 13, 2023 to shareholders of record at the close of business on December 30, 2022.

Unless otherwise stated, the forward-looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date of this press release and the Company has no intention and undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect future events, changes in circumstances, or changes in beliefs, unless required by applicable securities regulations. In the event that the Company does update any forward-looking statements contained in this press release, no inference should be made that the Company will make additional updates with respect to that statement, related matters or any other forward-looking statement. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are expressly qualified by this cautionary statement.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS  
The Company made a number of economic, market and operational assumptions in preparing and making certain forward-looking statements contained in this MD&A, including the following: reasonable industry growth ranging from slightly down to up high-single digits, that is based on the assumption that the supply chain disruptions do not worsen; market share that will remain constant or moderately increase; stable global and North American economic conditions, a limited impact from the military hostilities in Ukraine and the ongoing global health crisis; main currencies in which the Company operates will remain at near current levels; inflation is expected to remain elevated from strong demand, supply shortages and high energy prices, and is expected to gradually decline as central banks gradually increase interest rates; there will be no significant changes in tax laws or free trade arrangements or treaties applicable to the Company; the Company's margins, will remain at current levels; the supply base will remain able to support product development and planned production rates on commercially acceptable terms in a timely manner; the cybersecurity incident and its consequences will be adequately contained and will have limited impact on the planned wholesale; no new trade barriers will be imposed amongst jurisdictions in which the Company carries operations; the absence of unusually adverse weather conditions, especially in peak seasons. BRP cautions that its assumptions may not materialize and current economic conditions may render such assumptions, although believed reasonable at the time they were made, subject to greater uncertainty.

NON-IFRS MEASURES
This press release makes reference to certain non-IFRS measures. These measures are not recognized measures under IFRS, do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Rather, these measures are provided as additional information to complement those IFRS measures by providing further understanding of the Company's results of operations from management's perspective. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for analysis of the Company's financial information reported under IFRS. The Company uses non-IFRS measures including the following:

Non-IFRS measures

Definition

Reason for use


Normalized EBITDA

Net income before financing costs, financing
income, income tax expense (recovery),
depreciation expense and normalized elements

Assist management and investors in determining the financial performance of the Company's operating activities on a consistent basis by excluding certain non-cash elements such as depreciation expense, impairment charge, foreign exchange gain or loss on the Company's long-term debt denominated in U.S. dollars and foreign exchange gain or loss on certain of the Company's lease liabilities.

Other elements, such as restructuring, cybersecurity incident and wind-down costs, non-recurring gain or loss and acquisition-related costs, may be excluded from net income in the determination of Normalized EBITDA as they are considered not being reflective of the operational performance of the Company



Normalized net income

Net income adjusted of normalized elements
and related tax effect

In addition to the financial performance of operating activities, these measures consider the impact of investing activities, financing activities and income taxes on the Company's financial results



Normalized income tax expense

Income tax expense adjusted to reflect the tax
effect on normalized elements and to
normalize specific tax elements



Normalized effective tax rate

Based on Normalized net income before
Normalized income tax expense



Normalized earnings per share – basic & diluted

Calculated respectively by dividing the
Normalized net income by the weighted average
number of shares – basic and the weighted average number of shares – diluted



The Company believes non-IFRS measures are important supplemental measures of financial performance because they eliminate items that have less bearing on the Company's financial performance and thus highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS measures. The Company also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of companies, many of which present similar metrics when reporting their results. Management also uses the aforementioned non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate financial performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets, assess the Company's ability to meet its future debt service, capital expenditure and working capital requirements and also as a component in the determination of the short-term incentive compensation for the Company's employees. Because other companies may calculate these non-IFRS measures differently than the Company does, these metrics are not comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The Company refers the reader to the table below for the reconciliations of the non-IFRS measures presented by the Company to the most directly comparable IFRS measure.
