Factors at Play

BRP’s sales in the fiscal second quarter are expected to have been affected by the global semiconductor chip dearth grappling the auto sector. Amid the global semiconductor chip shortage, BRP is likely to have witnessed limited retail growth during the quarter under review. Tight availability for certain materials and parts, particularly semiconductors, is forcing the company to retrofit some products before being shipped out. This might have delayed the timing of certain deliveries during the fiscal second quarter, thus negatively impacting the company’s quarterly performance.

BRP’s Powersports retail sales in North America are expected to have witnessed a significant decline during the fiscal second quarter, mainly due to low network inventory and the impact of supply-chain constraints. This is likely to have eroded the company’s top line during the quarter.

The recreational vehicle maker’s elevated capex and research and development (R&D) expenses on advanced technologies for the development of new vehicle models might have further dented its fiscal second-quarter margins. Also, the increase in prices of commodities like aluminum and wood is expected to have further hurt the company’s quarterly performance.
