FY24 Quarterly Outlook
The Company continues to expect another solid year, reaffirming its Normalized EBITDA [1] increase ranging from 9% to 13% compared to the previous year and anticipates that about 45% of the implied Normalized EBITDA [1] for the rest of the year will be generated in the third quarter.

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

Continued strong deliveries, aided by improvements in the supply chain and the inflationary environment, allowed the Company to further build on the momentum created in its first quarter. The demand for the Company’s products remained healthy, as evidenced by the increase of 41% in the Company’s North American retail sales for Powersports Products during the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to the same period last year.

The increase in revenues for the three- and six-month periods ended July 31, 2023 compared to the corresponding periods ended July 31, 2022 is mainly explained by high deliveries of units due to improvements in the supply chain and sustained demand, which is driven in part by strong SSV, ATV, Sea-Doo pontoon and Snowmobile retail sales. The supply chain has gradually stabilized, resulting in production efficiencies, a return to the Company’s normal wholesale delivery pattern and an increase in gross profit margin compared to the same period last year. However, these increases were partially offset by more costly sales programs, which are mostly due to rising interest rates.

Revenues
Revenues increased by $339.5 million, or 13.9%, to $2,778.0 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $2,438.5 million for the corresponding period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to a higher volume of SSV, ATV and Snowmobile sold, increased deliveries of Sea-Doo pontoon, as well as favourable pricing across all product lines, partially offset by higher sales programs, due to higher interest rates. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $81 million.

  • Year-Round Products [5] (53% of Q2-24 revenues): Revenues from Year-Round Products increased by $103.5 million, or 7.6%, to $1,461.6 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $1,358.1 million for the corresponding period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily attributable to a higher volume of SSV and ATV sold, as well as favourable pricing across all product lines, which was partially offset by higher sales programs. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $40 million.

  • Seasonal Products [5] (32% of Q2-24 revenues): Revenues from Seasonal Products increased by $206.3 million, or 29.8%, to $897.5 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $691.2 million for the corresponding period ended July 31, 2022. The increase is primarily attributable to a higher volume of Snowmobile sold due to a reduction in supply chain issues that impacted deliveries in the three-month period ended July 31, 2022, as well as increased deliveries of the Sea-Doo pontoon. The increase was also attributable to favourable pricing across all product lines, partially offset by higher sales programs. The increase also includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $27 million.

  • Powersports PA&A and OEM Engines [5] (11% of Q2-24 revenues): Revenues from Powersports PA&A and OEM Engines increased by $36.7 million, or 14.3%, to $294.2 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $257.5 million for the corresponding period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was mainly attributable to a higher volume of PA&A coming from strong unit retail sales and sales from businesses acquired in the second half of Fiscal 2023, combined with favourable pricing. The increase was partially offset by higher sales programs. The increase also includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $11 million.

  • Marine [5] (4% of Q2-24 revenues): Revenues from the Marine segment decreased by $12.6 million, or 9.0%, to $126.9 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $139.5 million for the corresponding period ended July 31, 2022. The decrease was mainly due to a lower volume of boats and PA&A sold as a result of longer production ramp-up related to the introduction of new products, which have experienced extended delays due to supply chain issues, unfavourable mix across most product lines and higher sales programs. The decrease was partially offset by higher pricing and a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $3 million.

[5] 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 41% for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023 compared to the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in the sales of SSV, ATV, PWC and Snowmobile, given the reduction in supply chain issues, which had impacted deliveries in the three-month period ended July 31, 2022.

  • Year-Round Products: retail sales increased on a percentage basis in the low-twenties range compared to the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. In comparison, the Year-Round Products industry increased on a percentage basis in the high-single digits over the same period.
  • Seasonal Products: retail sales increased on a percentage basis in the low-seventies range, low-sixties when excluding Sea-Doo pontoon, compared to the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. In comparison, the Seasonal Products industry increased on a percentage basis in the low-fifties range over the same period.

Marine Products retail sales decreased by 44% compared to the three-month period ended July 31, 2022 as a result of softening consumer demand for the boating industry and lower product availability of newly introduced products in comparison with the prior-year period.

Gross profit
Gross profit increased by $94.9 million, or 15.7%, to $697.6 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $602.7 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. Gross profit margin percentage increased by 40 basis points to 25.1% from 24.7% for the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was the result of a higher volume sold, as highlighted above, favourable pricing across all product lines, a decrease in logistics costs due to more efficiencies in the supply chain and a reduction in certain material costs. The increase was partially offset by higher labour costs due to inflation, as well as higher sales programs. The increase in gross profit margin percentage was the result of favourable pricing across all product lines and higher production efficiency coming from an improved supply chain, partially offset by higher sales programs. The increase in gross profit includes an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation of $11 million.

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


Operating expenses

Operating expenses increased by $61.9 million, or 24.1%, to $318.8 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $256.9 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was mainly attributable to higher selling and marketing expenses, which are mainly due to continued product investment and an increase in marketing projects, an increase in R&D expenses to support future growth and higher G&A expenses, mainly related to the modernization of the Company’s software infrastructure. The increase in operating expenses includes an unfavourable foreign exchange rate variation of $27 million.

Normalized EBITDA [1]
Normalized EBITDA [1] increased by $54.8 million, or 13.1%, to $473.1 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $418.3 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher gross profit, partially offset by higher operating expenses.

Net Income
Net income increased by $101.0 million, or 42.5%, to $338.7 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to the $237.7 million for the three-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to a higher operating income, lower income tax expense and a favourable impact of the foreign exchange rate variation on the U.S. denominated long-term debt, partially offset by an increase in financing costs.

SIX-MONTH PERIOD ENDED JULY 31, 2023

Revenues
Revenues increased by $959.6 million, or 22.6%, to $5,207.4 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $4,247.8 million for the corresponding period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to a higher volume of SSV, PWC, ATV and Snowmobile sold, increased deliveries of Sea-Doo pontoon, favourable product mix across all product lines except Snowmobile and SSV, as well as favourable pricing across all product lines. The increase was partially offset by higher sales programs. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $176 million.

Normalized EBITDA [1]
Normalized EBITDA [1] increased by $159.8 million, or 23.1%, to $850.2 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $690.4 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to higher gross profit, partially offset by higher operating expenses.

Net Income
Net income increased by $134.5 million, or 37.5%, to $493.2 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2023, compared to $358.7 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was primarily due to a higher operating income, lower income tax expense and a favourable impact of the foreign exchange rate variation on the U.S. denominated long-term debt, partially offset by an increase in financing costs.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company generated net cash flows from operating activities totaling $748.2 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2023 compared to a usage of $1.0 million for the six-month period ended July 31, 2022. The increase was mainly due to favourable changes in working capital and lower income taxes paid.

The Company invested $220.4 million of its liquidity in capital expenditures to add production capacity and modernize the Company’s software infrastructure to support future growth. Given the revised guidance for Marine, the Company decided to postpone the construction of its boat manufacturing plant in Chihuahua City, Mexico, by 12 months with an expected start of production in Spring of 2026.

During the six-month period ended July 31, 2023, the Company also returned $238.5 million to its shareholders through quarterly dividend payouts and its share repurchase programs for the six-month period ended July 31, 2023.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS 

The Company made a number of economic, market and operational assumptions in preparing and making certain forward-looking statements contained in this press release, including without limitation, the assumptions underlying the Company’s environmental, social and governance targets, goals and initiatives under its CSR25 program, which are set out in the “Forward-Looking Statements” section of its Corporate Social Responsibility report, as well as the following assumptions: reasonable industry growth ranging from slightly down to slightly up, that assumes an improved supply chain environment compared to last year; market share will remain constant or moderately increase; stable global and North American economic conditions, a limited impact from the military conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the COVID-19 pandemic; main currencies in which the Company operates will remain at near current levels inflation is expected to remain elevated, in-line with central banks projections; 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; 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. The Company cautions that its assumptions may not materialize and that global economic and political conditions, combined with one or more of the risks and uncertainties discussed herein, may render such assumptions, although believed reasonable at the time they were made, inaccurate. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results or performance of the Company or the industry to be materially different from the outlook or any future results or performance implied by such statements.

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 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 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 before normalized elements adjusted to reflect the tax effect on these elements

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 by dividing the Normalized net income by 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 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 tables below for the reconciliations of the non-IFRS measures presented by the Company to the most directly comparable IFRS measure.
