Management Commentary

"Our fourth quarter and full year revenue results were record-setting and contributed to market share gains in all of the sports we serve," said Kevin Davis, CEO of Performance Sports Group. "In fact, currency neutral hockey revenues grew 13% for the year, improving our estimated global equipment market share from 54% to 56%. Our Maverik Lacrosse revenues grew 28% in fiscal 2015, improving our estimated total equipment market share from 26% to 28%. Our baseball business, led by EASTON, had a record-setting year driven by solid demand for the MAKO family of products.

"These results reinforce that the fundamental building blocks of our shareholder value are continuing to perform quite strongly. Our Company continues to outpace the growth of the markets in which we participate by growing market share and profitability. We also continue to leverage our performance sports platform, which is driving cost efficiencies and, on a currency neutral basis, profit growth rates that exceed our revenue growth. We remain very well positioned to continue our momentum into fiscal 2016 and beyond.

"The strengthening U.S. dollar continues to impact the reported results of companies with meaningful business outside the U.S. For our Company, the impact is experienced most particularly in our hockey business, which represents nearly all of our revenues generated outside of the U.S. At today's foreign exchange rates, we currently expect Adjusted Net Income in fiscal 2016 to fall in a range between $0.70 to $0.73 per share, primarily due to the impact of foreign exchange on our reported results in the first quarter. Absent the year-over-year impact of foreign exchange, we currently expect our Adjusted Net Income per share for fiscal 2016 to be roughly flat compared to the $1.02 per share reported in fiscal 2015.

"In recognition of today's severely volatile foreign currency market and given the continued U.S. dollar strength since our July 7th pre-earnings release, we are also providing incremental detail regarding our expectations for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, where at today's foreign exchange rates, we currently expect Adjusted Net Income to fall in a range between $0.10 and $0.12 per share. Absent the year-over-year impact of foreign exchange, we currently expect Adjusted Net Income per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 to decrease by approximately 45% as a result of new hockey products launching earlier in the season (Q4 of fiscal 2015) compared to last year and the launch of only one bat family for EASTON compared to last year's launch of both the MAKO and MAKO TORQ families. These disclosures are being provided as an exception to our policy of not providing earnings guidance and we currently do not expect to provide further earnings guidance for other quarters in fiscal 2016 or beyond."

Fiscal Q4 2015 Financial Results

Revenues in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2015 increased 38% to a record $156.1 million compared to $112.9 million in the same year-ago quarter. Including the impact of foreign currency, revenues were a record $147.6 million, up 31%. The increase in reported revenues was primarily due to the addition of revenues generated by EASTON and solid growth in ice hockey equipment, partially offset by an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange. Excluding the results of EASTON, as well as the impact from foreign exchange, revenues grew organically by 14%.

Adjusted Gross Profit in the fourth quarter increased 31% to $57.3 million compared to $43.8 million in the year-ago quarter. Including the impact of foreign currency, Adjusted Gross Profit was $47.5 million, up 8%. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted Gross Profit decreased 210 basis points to 36.7% compared to 38.8% in the year-ago quarter. Including the impact of foreign currency, Adjusted Gross Profit margin was 32.2%, down 660 basis points. The decrease in reported Adjusted Gross Profit margin was primarily driven by the impact from foreign exchange and lower margins in Baseball/Softball due in part to higher freight and distribution costs as a result of the west coast port strike.

SG&A expenses in the fourth quarter increased 17% to $32.2 million compared to $27.5 million in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to the addition of EASTON and higher sales and marketing costs. Including the impact of foreign currency, SG&A expenses increased 13% to $30.9 million. As a percentage of revenues and excluding acquisition-related charges, share-based payment expenses, costs related to a lacrosse helmet decertification and the impact of the BRG Sports intellectual property litigation settlement, reported SG&A expenses decreased 590 basis points to 17.0% compared to 22.9% in the year-ago quarter.

R&D expenses in the fourth quarter increased 22% to $6.6 million compared to $5.4 million in the year-ago quarter due to the continued focus on product development and the addition of EASTON. Including the impact of foreign currency, R&D expenses increased 16% to $6.3 million. As a percentage of revenues, reported R&D expenses decreased 50 basis points to 4.3% compared to 4.8% in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 34% to $28.7 million compared to $21.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Including the impact of foreign currency, Adjusted EBITDA was $19.8 million, down 7%.

Adjusted Net Income in the fourth quarter increased 46% to $15.0 million or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to $10.3 million or $0.27 per diluted share in the year-ago quarter. Excluding the $0.09 per diluted share gain from the BRG Sports intellectual property litigation settlement in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, Adjusted Net Income increased 114%, while Adjusted EPS increased 78%, demonstrating the continued power of the PSG brands and strong performance of the Company's operations teams. The impact of foreign exchange reduced Adjusted Net Income by approximately $0.13 per diluted share compared to the fourth quarter last year, resulting in reported Adjusted Net Income of $8.8 million or $0.19 per diluted share.

On May 31, 2015, reported working capital was $332.4 million compared to $324.8 million on May 31, 2014. Total debt was reduced by 21% to $410.8 million at May 31, 2015 compared to $522.8 million at May 31, 2014. The decrease reflects the approximate $119.5 million reduction of the Company's term loan facility in June 2014. Performance Sport Group's leverage ratio, as defined in the Company's credit agreements, stood at 4.29x as of May 31, 2015 compared to 4.78x one year ago. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange on the Company's fiscal 2015 EBITDA, the leverage ratio was 3.62.

Segment Review

Hockey revenues in the fourth quarter increased 17% (up 7% on a reported basis) to $98.4 million compared to the year-ago quarter, driven by the new VAPOR 1X skate, the new RE-AKT 100 helmet and strong under-protective sales due to the SUPREME launch and back-to-hockey 2015 orders. Hockey revenues in fiscal 2015 increased 13% (up 8% on a reported basis) to $437.6 million compared to fiscal 2014, driven by growth in all equipment categories and strong growth in apparel.

Hockey EBITDA in the fourth quarter increased 75% (up 18% on a reported basis) to $27.6 million compared to the year-ago quarter. Hockey EBITDA in fiscal 2015 increased 27% (virtually unchanged on a reported basis) to $85.1 million compared to fiscal 2014.

Baseball/Softball revenues in the fourth quarter increased substantially to $46.2 million from $17.8 million in the year-ago quarter due to the addition of EASTON. Baseball/Softball revenues in fiscal 2015 increased significantly to $200.1 million compared to $24.5 million in fiscal 2014.

Revenues in the Other Sports segment, which comprises lacrosse and soccer, increased 7% in the fourth quarter to $11.5 million. This was driven by a 9% increase in lacrosse, including growth in every equipment category of the MAVERIK brand, as well as growth from the CASCADE brand. Revenues in the Other Sports segment in fiscal 2015 increased 6% to $37.5 million compared to $35.5 million in fiscal 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Net Income/Loss and constant currency are non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not recognized measures under GAAP and do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP, 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 GAAP measure. These measures are provided as additional information to complement those GAAP 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 analysis of the Company's financial information reported under GAAP. The Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as Adjusted Gross Profit, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EPS, Adjusted Net Income/Loss and constant currency metrics, 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 GAAP financial measures. The Company also believes that securities analysts, investors and other interested parties frequently use non-GAAP financial measures in the evaluation of issuers. The Company also uses non-GAAP financial 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, Adjusted Net Income/Loss and constant currency metrics are non-GAAP financial 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-Canadian 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 in Canada, costs related to share offerings, share-based compensation expense and other non-cash or one-time items.

All references to "constant currency," a non-GAAP financial measure, reflect the impact of translating the current period results at the monthly foreign exchange rates of the prior year period, the effect of changes in the value of the Canadian dollar against the U.S. dollar on our cost of goods purchased for sale outside of the United States, including the related realized gains/losses on derivatives and the realized gains/losses generated from revaluing non-functional currency assets and liabilities. The reported foreign exchange impact does not include the impact of fluctuations in Asian currencies against the U.S. dollar and their related effect on our Asian-sourced finished goods. For more information, see "Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Factors Affecting our Performance - Impact of Foreign Exchange and Hedging Practices" in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K.

A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the relevant GAAP measure can be found in the tables at the end of this press release and in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K under "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."
