Valcourt, Quebec, March 25, 2022 – BRP Inc. (TSX:DOO; NASDAQ:DOOO) today reported its financial results for the three- and twelve-month periods ended January 31, 2022. All financial information is in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted. The complete financial results are available on SEDAR and EDGAR as well as in the section Quarterly Reports of BRP’s website.

"We are extremely pleased with our fourth quarter performance which concluded an exceptional Fiscal 22. We delivered record annual results with revenues reaching over $7 billion for the first time in our history, despite operating in a volatile environment. We continued gaining market share in the powersports industry and attained record market share in the snowmobile, PWC, ATV and SSV segments. These results were driven by ongoing robust demand for our products and our team’s ability to navigate through supply chain disruptions,” said José Boisjoli, President and CEO.

"Looking ahead to Fiscal 23, we anticipate solid growth of 8% to 12% in diluted Normalized EPS. The first half of the year could prove to be more challenging given the global supply chain volatility. We are confident we can achieve our full year guidance based on sustained consumer interest in powersports, our strong product portfolio, including new product introductions, and the agility of our team,” added Mr. Boisjoli.

"Furthermore, we are very excited to announce today that our iconic Can-Am brand is returning to its motorcycle roots with a product line-up that will be completely electric, and the first models are expected to be available in mid-2024,” concluded Mr. Boisjoli.
