Management Commentary

"Fiscal 2014 was a year of significant transformation for our organization," said Kevin Davis, president and CEO of Performance Sports Group. "In addition to numerous successful product rollouts and strong growth in our hockey, lacrosse, and apparel businesses, we enhanced our leading performance sports platform with the acquisition of Easton Baseball/Softball. With the acquisition complete, we now hold the No. 1 North American market share in diamond sports and No. 1 worldwide market share in hockey."

"We are meeting or exceeding all of our integration milestones for the EASTON operations and I am very happy with the way our entire organization is working to ensure a smooth integration process," continued Davis. "Global demand for our platform of brands continues to accelerate. Hockey sales remained strong, led by the launch of several new products and apparel, including the NEXUS line of sticks which drove 41% growth in the fourth quarter in our largest dollar market share opportunity in hockey. Our hockey team apparel and uniform business also grew an impressive 37% in the fourth quarter as we continue to build momentum with this significant growth opportunity. Our lacrosse business also continues to grow at healthy double-digit rates with strong sales of the new CASCADE "R" helmet and various new Maverik products.

"PSG's expansion into new sports and apparel is a perfect example of our ability to enhance our performance sports platform. As we've proven with our hockey business, we expect to raise the bar of innovation across all of our brands with world class R&D, strong intellectual property and, most importantly, a dedication to connecting with our core consumers. Despite continued currency headwinds, our goal is to deliver another record year of top and bottom-line performance in fiscal 2015."

Fiscal Q4 2014 Financial Results

Revenues in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2014 increased 30% to $112.9 million compared to $86.7 million in the same year-ago quarter. On a constant currency basis, revenues were up 35%. The increase was due to strong growth in ice hockey equipment and lacrosse as well as the addition of the EASTON and COMBAT diamond sports businesses, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange.

Excluding the results of the Easton Baseball/Softball and Combat Sports acquisitions, as well as the impact from foreign exchange, revenues grew organically by 15%.

Adjusted Gross Profit (a non-IFRS measure) in the fourth quarter increased 22% to $43.8 million compared to $35.9 million in the year-ago quarter. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted Gross Profit was 38.8% compared to 41.4% in the same year-ago period. The decrease in Adjusted Gross Profit margin was primarily driven by an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange and Easton Baseball/Softball's lower gross margin during the six week period since the acquisition date. The Company's period of ownership during the fourth quarter is a seasonally low revenue period for the Easton Baseball/Softball business. These factors more than offset improvements in ice hockey gross margin (see "Non-IFRS Measures" below for further discussion).

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in the fourth quarter increased 17% to $27.4 million compared to $23.4 million in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to the addition of Easton Baseball/Softball as well as higher marketing and acquisition-related costs, partially offset by the gain from the intellectual property litigation settlement with BRG Sports. As a percentage of revenues and excluding acquisition-related charges, costs related to share offerings, share-based payment expenses, and the litigation settlement, SG&A expenses were 24.0% compared to 21.8% in the year-ago quarter.

R&D expenses in the fourth quarter increased 17% to $5.3 million compared to $4.6 million in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to continued focus on product development and the addition of EASTON and COMBAT. As a percentage of revenues, R&D expenses decreased to 4.7% compared to 5.3% in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-IFRS measure) increased 52% to $21.3 million compared to $14.0 million in the year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher Adjusted Gross Profit and a favorable realized gain on derivatives, as well as the favorable litigation settlement described above.

Adjusted Net Income (a non-IFRS measure) in the fourth quarter increased 12% to $10.8 million or $0.29 per diluted share, compared to $9.7 million or $0.26 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted Net Income in the fourth quarter includes the benefit of the aforementioned litigation settlement of $0.09 per diluted share, net of related expenses, and a $0.03 loss related to the acquisition of the Easton Baseball/Softball business. Adjusted EPS of $0.26 in the fourth quarter of Fiscal 2013 included a benefit of $0.05 per diluted share due to non-recurring tax-related items.

On May 31, 2014, working capital was $320.9 million compared to $200.9 million on May 31, 2013, primarily due to the acquisition of Easton Baseball/Softball. Excluding the acquisition, working capital was $225.3 million as of May 31, 2014, an increase of 12%. Total debt was $523.1 million compared to $171.7 million at May 31, 2013. The Company's leverage ratio, defined as average net indebtedness divided by trailing twelve months EBITDA (a non-IFRS measure), stood at 4.78x as of May 31, 2014 compared to 2.70x one year ago. The increase reflects the Company's financing of the Easton Baseball/Softball acquisition.

On June 25, 2014, the Company completed an underwritten public offering for total gross proceeds of approximately $126.5 million. PSG used the net proceeds of the offering to reduce leverage and repay approximately $119.5 million of the Company's term loan facility, which was used to finance the Easton Baseball/Softball acquisition. Following the pay down, the Company's leverage ratio stood at 3.66x.

Full Year Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

Revenues in fiscal 2014 increased 12% to $446.2 million compared to $399.6 million in fiscal 2013. On a constant currency basis, revenues were up 14%. Excluding the results of the EASTON, COMBAT, INARIA and CASCADE acquisitions, as well as the impact from foreign exchange and the Canadian tariff reduction, revenues grew organically by 6%.

Adjusted Gross Profit in fiscal 2014 increased 8% to $164.7 million compared to $153.0 million in fiscal 2013. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted Gross Profit was 36.9% compared to 38.3% last year.

SG&A expenses increased 16% to $105.2 million compared to $90.4 million in fiscal 2013. As a percentage of revenues and excluding acquisition-related charges, costs related to share offerings, share-based payment expenses, and the impact of the litigation settlements, SG&A expenses remained flat at 19.8% compared to fiscal 2013.

R&D expenses increased 15% to $18.5 million compared to $16.1 million in fiscal 2013. As a percentage of revenues, R&D was 4.1% compared to 4.0% in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-IFRS measure) in fiscal 2014 increased 11% to $69.0 million compared to $62.3 million in fiscal 2013.

Adjusted Net Income (a non-IFRS measure) in fiscal 2014 was $37.3 million or $1.00 per diluted share, compared to $35.7 million or $0.98 per diluted share in fiscal 2013. Adjusted EPS in 2014 includes an $0.08 benefit from the litigation settlement with BRG Sports as well as additional expenses related to litigation matters, and a $0.03 loss related to the acquisition of the Easton Baseball/Softball business. Adjusted EPS in 2013 included a benefit of approximately $0.05 due to non-recurring tax-related items.

Non-IFRS Measures

Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted Net Income/Loss are non-IFRS measures. These non-IFRS measures are not recognized measures under IFRS and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS, and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. When used, these measures are defined in such terms as to allow the reconciliation to the closest IFRS measure. 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 analyses of the Company's financial information reported under IFRS. The Company uses non-IFRS measures, such as Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted Net Income/Loss, to provide investors with a supplemental measure of its operating performance and thus highlight trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on IFRS financial measures. The Company also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-IFRS measures in the evaluation of issuers. The Company also uses non-IFRS measures in order to facilitate operating performance comparisons from period to period, prepare annual operating budgets, and to assess its ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditure, and working capital requirements.

Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS and Adjusted Net Income/Loss are non-IFRS measures. Adjusted Gross Profit is defined as gross profit plus the following expenses which are part of cost of goods sold: (i) amortization and depreciation of intangible assets, (ii) non-cash charges to cost of goods sold resulting from fair market value adjustments to inventory as a result of business acquisitions, (iii) reserves established to dispose of obsolete inventory acquired from acquisitions and (iv) other one-time or non-cash items. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA (net income adjusted for income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, losses related to amendments to the credit facility, gain or loss on disposal of fixed assets, net interest expense, deferred financing fees, unrealized gains/losses on derivative instruments, and realized and unrealized gains/losses related to foreign exchange revaluation) before restructuring and other one-time or non-cash charges associated with acquisitions, other one-time or non-cash items, pre-initial public offering sponsor fees, costs related to share offerings, as well as share-based payment expenses. Adjusted EPS is defined as Adjusted Net Income/Loss divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Adjusted Net Income/Loss is defined as net income adjusted for all unrealized gains/losses related to derivative instruments and unrealized gains/losses related to foreign exchange revaluation, non-cash or incremental charges associated with acquisitions, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets for acquisitions since the Company's initial public offering, costs related to share offerings, share-based compensation expense and other non-cash or one-time items.

Further discussion of these non-IFRS measures to the relevant reported results can be found in the tables at the end of this press release under "Non-IFRS Reconciliations" and in the Company's MD&A for the fourth quarter.

All references to "constant currency" reflect the impact of translating the current period results at the monthly foreign exchange rates from the prior year period. This translation impact does not include the impact of foreign exchange on the Company's direct material costs or gains/losses on derivatives. For more information, see "Factors Affecting our Performance - Impact of Foreign Exchange" in the Company's MD&A.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts...
One of the bewildering things about DevOps is integrating the massive toolchain including the dozens of new tools that seem to crop up every year. Part of DevOps is Continuous Delivery and having a complex toolchain can add additional integration and setup to your developer environment. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Miko Matsumura, Chief Marketing Officer of Gradle Inc., will discuss which tools to use in a developer stack, how to provision the toolchain to minimize onboa...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Heydt, founder of Seamless...
