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.

North American Retail Sales

The Company's North American retail sales for powersports products increased by 43% [7] for the threemonth 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 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.

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 includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $34 million.

Normalized EBITDA[9]

Normalized EBITDA 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 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.
