Highlights for the Three- and Twelve-Month Periods Ended January 31, 2020

Revenues increased by $110.0 million, or 7.3%, to $1,615.9 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $1,505.9 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The revenue increase was mainly due to higher wholesale of Year-Round Products, partially offset by an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation of $27 million.

The Company's North American retail sales for powersports vehicles and outboard engines increased by 12% for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020 compared with the three-month period ended January 31, 2019. The increase was driven by Year-Round Products and snowmobile.

Gross profit increased by $48.8 million, or 14.6%, to $383.7 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $334.9 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The gross profit increase includes an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation of $26 million. Gross profit margin percentage increased by 150 basis points to 23.7% from 22.2% for the three-month period ended January 31, 2019. The increase of 150 basis points was primarily due to favourable pricing and sales programs variation, lower warranty costs and a higher volume of products sold, partially offset by an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation.

Operating expenses decreased by $22.1 million, or 10.6%, to $186.3 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $208.4 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2019. This decrease was mainly attributable to the reversal of expenses related a favourable litigation decision, partially offset by higher general and administrative expenses for continued product investments.

Revenues increased by $808.9 million, or 15.4%, to $6,052.7 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $5,243.8 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The revenue increase was primarily attributable to higher wholesale of Year-Round Products.
           
The Company's North American retail sales for powersports vehicles and outboard engines increased by 12% for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2020 compared with the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2019, mainly due to an increase in Year-Round Products.

Gross profit margin percentage increased by 10 basis points to 24.0% from 23.9% for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2019. The increase was primarily due to higher volume of Year-Round Products sold and favourable pricing and sales programs variation, partially offset by higher commodity, production and distribution costs.

Operating expenses increased by $68.9 million, or 8.8%, to $849.7 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $780.8 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2019.

QUARTERLY REVIEW BY SEGMENT

Powersports

Year-Round Products

Revenues from Year-Round Products increased by $107.5 million, or 18.0%, to $705.1 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $597.6 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The increase resulted mainly from a higher volume of SSV sold, partially offset by an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation of $11 million.

Seasonal Products

Revenues from Seasonal Products decreased by $34.9 million, or 6.0%, to $542.7 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $577.6 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The decrease was driven by a lower volume of PWC sold and an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation of $10 million, partially offset by a favourable product mix and price increase in snowmobile and PWC.

North American Seasonal Products retail sales increased on a percentage basis by high-single digits compared with the three-month period ended January 31, 2019.

Powersports PA&A and OEM Engines
     
Revenues from Powersports PA&A and OEM Engines increased by $11.4 million, or 5.6%, to $215.6 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $204.2 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The increase was mainly attributable to a higher volume of Year-Round Products parts and accessories.

Marine

Revenues from the Marine segment increased by $23.8 million, or 17.8%, to $157.4 million for the three-month period ended January 31, 2020, compared with $133.6 million for the corresponding period ended January 31, 2019. The increase was mainly due to the additional revenues following the acquisition of Telwater and a higher volume of outboard engines sold.

North American outboard engine retail sales decreased on a percentage basis by low-single digits compared with the three-month period ended January 31, 2019.

Cash flows

A summary of net cash flows by activities is presented below for the twelve-month periods ended January 31, 2020 and 2019:

Cash at end of period $42.5   $100.0  

Net Cash Flows Generated from Operating Activities

Net cash flows generated from operating activities totalled $555.5 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2020 compared with $561.2 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2019. The $5.7 million decrease in net cash flows generated was mainly due to higher income taxes paid and by unfavourable changes in working capital of $130.5 million, partially offset by a higher operating income when excluding the depreciation expense. The unfavourable changes in working capital were primarily driven by higher Inventory and a lower variance in Trade payables and accruals compared to Fiscal 2019.

Net Cash Flows Used in Investing Activities

Net cash flows used in investing activities totalled $443.3 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2020 compared with $470.5 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2019. The $27.2 million decrease was mainly attributable to a lower amount invested in business combinations in Fiscal 2020, partially offset by investments related to the modernization of information systems.

Net Cash Flows Used in Financing Activities

Net cash flows used in financing activities totalled $177.7 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2020 compared with $213.2 million for the twelve-month period ended January 31, 2019. The $35.5 million decrease in net cash flows used was mainly attributable to the new U.S. $335.0 million tranche of the Term Facility, partially offset by a higher amount invested to repurchase shares and stock options, the repayment of lease liabilities due to IFRS 16 – Leases adoption and a higher interest paid.

As of March 18, 2020, BRP drew on its revolving credit facility to reach the amount of $700 million as a precautionary measure to increase liquidity and preserve financial flexibility in light of the COVID-19 situation.

SUSPENSION OF DIVIDEND

As part of BRP’s measures to preserve its financial flexilibility, the Board of Directors has decided to suspend the Company’s quarterly cash dividend until further notice.

Key assumptions in determining forward-looking information are set forth below. In addition, many factors could cause the Company’s actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements or future events or developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation following risk factors: the impact of adverse economic conditions such as those resulting from the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis (including on consumer spending, the Company’s operations and supply and distribution chains, the availability of credit and the Company’s workforce); any decline in social acceptability of the Company’s products; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; high levels of indebtedness; unavailability of additional capital; unfavourable weather conditions; seasonal sales fluctuations; inability to comply with product safety, health, environmental and noise pollution laws; large fixed cost base; inability of dealers and distributors to secure adequate access to capital; supply problems, termination or interruption of supply arrangements or increases in the cost of materials; competition in product lines; inability to successfully execute growth strategy; international sales and operations; failure of information technology systems or security breach; failure to maintain an effective system of internal control over financial reporting and to produce accurate and timely financial statements; loss of members of management team or employees who possess specialized market knowledge and technical skills; inability to maintain and enhance reputation and brands; significant product liability claim; significant product repair and/or replacement due to product warranty claims or product recalls; reliance on a network of independent dealers and distributors; inability to successfully manage inventory levels; intellectual property infringement and litigation; inability to successfully execute manufacturing strategy; increase freight and shipping costs or disruptions; covenants in financing and other material agreements; changes in tax laws and unanticipated tax liabilities; deterioration in relationships with employees; pension plan liabilities; natural disasters; failure to carry proper insurance coverage; volatile market price for BRP’s subordinate voting shares; conduct of business through subsidiaries; significant influence by Beaudier Inc. and 4338618 Canada Inc. (together the “Beaudier Group”) and Bain Capital Luxembourg Investments S. à r. l. (“Bain Capital”); and future sales of BRP’s shares by Beaudier Group, Bain Capital, directors, officers or senior management of the Company. These factors are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect the Company; however, these factors should be considered carefully. This press release should be read in conjunction with our annual management’s discussion and analysis and our audited consolidated financial statements for Fiscal 2019, our management’s discussion and analysis and interim financial statements for the first three quarters of Fiscal 2020 and our other recent  and future filings with applicable Canadian and U.S. securities regulatory authorities, available on SEDAR at sedar.com or EDGAR at sec.gov, respectively. The forward-looking statements contained in the press release are made as of the date of the 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.

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 Normalized EBITDA, Normalized net income, Normalized income tax expense, Normalized effective tax rate, Normalized basic earnings per share and Normalized diluted earnings per share.

Normalized EBITDA is provided to assist 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 costs, loss on litigation and acquisition related-costs, may also 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, Normalized income tax expense, Normalized effective tax rate, Normalized basic earnings per share and Normalized diluted earnings per share, in addition to the financial performance of operating activities, take into account the impact of investing activities, financing activities and income taxes on the Company’s financial results.

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 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.

Normalized EBITDA is defined as net income before financing costs, financing income, income tax expense (recovery), depreciation expense and normalized elements. Normalized net income is defined as net income before normalized elements adjusted to reflect the tax effect on these elements. Normalized income tax expense is defined as income tax expense adjusted to reflect the tax effect on normalized elements and to normalize specific tax elements. Normalized effective tax rate is based on Normalized net income before Normalized income tax expense. Normalized earnings per share - basic and Normalized earnings per share – diluted are 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 refers the reader to the table below for the reconciliations of Normalized EBITDA and Normalized net income presented by the Company to the most directly comparable IFRS measure.
