BRPOn May 30th, 2019, BRP Inc. (TSX:DOO; NASDAQ:DOOO) reported its financial results for the three-month period ended April 30, 2019. All financial information is in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted. The complete financial results are available at Sedar, as well as in the Quarterly Reports section of BRP’s website.

“We have experienced strong retail momentum in North America and Europe with all our sectors trending positively, and we are very satisfied with our year-over-year revenue growth of 17%, even while operating in a dynamic environment. We have continued to outpace the competition, and are positive about the outlook for the rest of this year,” declared José Boisjoli, BRP’s President and CEO.

“Our quarter after quarter strong performance is testament to our ability to execute on our strategic priorities : growth, agility and Lean enterprise. With our industry leadership position and our quality of our execution, we are confident to deliver the guidance for the year”, concluded Boisjoli.

Highlights for the Three-Month Period Ended April 30, 2019
Revenues increased by $197.0 million, or 17.3%, to $1,333.7 million for the three-month period ended April 30, 2019, compared with $1,136.7 million for the corresponding period ended April 30, 2018. The revenue increase was primarily attributable to higher wholesale of Year-Round Products. The increase includes a favourable foreign exchange rate variation of $13 million.

The Company's North American retail sales for the three-month period ended April 30, 2019 increased by 10% compared with the three-month period ended April 30, 2018, mainly due to an increase in 3WV following the introduction of the Can-Am Ryker.

Gross profit increased by $19.0 million, or 6.7%, to $300.6 million for the three-month period ended April 30, 2019, compared with $281.6 million for the corresponding period ended April 30, 2018. Gross profit margin percentage decreased by 230 basis points to 22.5% from 24.8% for the three-month period ended April 30, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to higher commodity, production and distribution costs and an unfavourable product mix of 3WV sold, partially offset by higher volume of 3WV and PAC sold.

Operating expenses increased by $16.2 million, or 8.3%, to $211.6 million for the three-month period ended April 30, 2019, compared with $195.4 million for the three-month period ended April 30, 2018. The increase was mainly attributable to support for the launch of various products such as the Can-Am Ryker, continued product investments and costs related to the modernization of information systems, partially offset by lower variable employee compensation expenses.
