Management Commentary

"We reported another record quarter due to the continued strong performance of EASTON and 16% organic sales growth," said Kevin Davis, president and CEO of Performance Sports Group. "EASTON continued to experience solid demand for its MAKO family of products, including the revolutionary TORQ bat. Our hockey business had its fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth, up 16% on a constant currency basis and driven by the successful launch of our VAPOR 1X stick, underscoring our well-defined strategy to grow our stick business -- the largest hockey category. With this launch, our stick category grew 26% in constant currency year-to-date and 92% in Q3.

"Our third quarter results also benefited from the resurgence in our lacrosse business, with revenues up 19%. After completing a simple modification to the CASCADE R helmet early in the second quarter, the brand experienced a strong uptick in both January and February, and delivered 11% helmet sales growth for the quarter. We also continued to see growth in every equipment category of our MAVERIK line due to continued strength in our OPTIK and TANK heads, as well as our new line of shafts and gloves.

"Our consolidated business continues to perform well despite currency headwinds that have had, and will continue to have, a significant impact -- particularly on our hockey business. For perspective, changes in foreign currency have reduced our year-to-date Adjusted EPS by approximately $0.17 compared to the same period last year. The U.S. dollar has strengthened even further as we head into two very significant quarters for our hockey business. This $0.17 decline is a clear example of how foreign currency markets continue to impact our reported results, but it also reflects the strength of our business and our ability to generate strong results despite these volatile currency markets."

Fiscal Q3 2015 Financial Results

Revenues in the fiscal third quarter of 2015 increased 121% to $137.7 million compared to $62.2 million in the same year-ago quarter. On a constant currency basis, revenues were up 127%. The increase 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 16%.

Adjusted Gross Profit (a non-IFRS measure) in the third quarter increased 134% to $46.3 million compared to $19.8 million in the year-ago quarter. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted Gross Profit increased 180 basis points to 33.6% compared to 31.8% in the year-ago quarter. The increase in Adjusted Gross Profit margin was primarily driven by the addition of EASTON, partially offset by the unfavorable impact from foreign exchange (see "Non-IFRS Measures" below for further discussion).

SG&A expenses in the third quarter increased 37% to $33.7 million compared to $24.5 million in the year-ago quarter, primarily due to the addition of EASTON and higher sales and marketing costs. As a percentage of revenues and excluding acquisition-related charges, share-based payment expenses and costs related to a lacrosse helmet decertification, SG&A expenses decreased significantly to 21.0% compared to 32.8% in the year-ago quarter.

R&D expenses in the third quarter increased 28% to $6.1 million compared to $4.7 million in the year-ago quarter due to continued focus on product development and the addition of EASTON. As a percentage of revenues, R&D expenses decreased 320 basis points to 4.4% compared to 7.6% in the year-ago quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA (a non-IFRS measure) increased significantly to $14.4 million compared to a loss of $3.0 million in the year-ago quarter. This increase was due to the addition of EASTON, partially offset by the unfavorable impact from foreign exchange. On a constant currency basis, Adjusted EBITDA was $17.5 million.

Adjusted Net Income (a non-IFRS measure) in the third quarter increased significantly to $6.2 million or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $4.2 million or $(0.11) per diluted share in the year-ago quarter. The impact of foreign exchange reduced Adjusted Net Income by approximately $0.05 per diluted share compared to the third quarter last year.

On February 28, 2015, working capital was $338.6 million compared to $179.9 million on February 28, 2014, primarily due to the acquisition of EASTON and investment in the Company's apparel business. Excluding the acquisition, working capital was $230.6 million as of February 28, 2015, an increase of 28% versus the prior year.

Total debt was $431.2 million at February 28, 2015 compared to $130.8 million at February 28, 2014. Performance Sport Group's leverage ratio, as defined in the Company's credit agreements, stood at 3.87x as of February 28, 2015 compared to 2.51x one year ago. The increase reflects the Company's financing of the EASTON acquisition.

Nine Month Fiscal 2015 Financial Results

Revenues in the first nine months of fiscal 2015 increased 52% to $507.1 million compared to $333.3 million in the same year-ago period. On a constant currency basis, revenues were up 56%. Excluding the results of EASTON, as well as the impact from foreign exchange, revenues grew organically by 11%.

Adjusted Gross Profit in the first nine months increased 50% to $181.9 million compared to $120.9 million in the year-ago period. As a percentage of revenues, Adjusted Gross Profit was 35.9% compared to 36.3% in the same year-ago period.

SG&A expenses increased 40% to $109.0 million compared to $77.8 million in the same period a year ago. As a percentage of revenues and excluding acquisition-related charges, share-based payment expenses and costs related to the lacrosse helmet decertification, SG&A expenses decreased 150 basis points to 18.8% compared to 20.3% in the first nine months of fiscal 2014.

R&D expenses increased 37% to $18.0 million compared to $13.1 million in the year-ago period. As a percentage of revenues, R&D expenses decreased 30 basis points to 3.6% compared to 3.9% in the first nine months of fiscal 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 65% to $78.5 million compared to $47.7 million in the year-ago period. Without the impact of currency fluctuations, Adjusted EBITDA increased 84% to $87.8 million.

Adjusted Net Income in the first nine months of fiscal 2015 increased 51% to $40.0 million or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to $26.5 million or $0.71 per diluted share in the year-ago period. The impact of foreign exchange reduced Adjusted Net Income by approximately $0.17 per diluted share compared to the same period last year.

Segment Review

Hockey revenues in the third quarter increased 9% to $53.9 million, driven by the new VAPOR 1X stick launch, partially offset by the shift in timing of certain orders to earlier this year and an unfavorable impact from foreign exchange. Excluding currency impacts, hockey revenues increased 16% in the quarter due to composite stick sales growth of 92%.

Hockey EBITDA was a loss of $4.0 million in the third quarter compared to a loss of $3.2 million in the year-ago period. The slight decrease was due to the impact of foreign exchange, which more than offset higher revenues in the quarter. Excluding foreign exchange, Hockey EBITDA increased $2.5 million or 78%.

Baseball/Softball revenues in the third quarter increased significantly to $71.9 million from $2.9 million in the year-ago period due to the addition of EASTON.

Baseball/Softball EBITDA in the third quarter increased substantially to $18.9 million from a loss of $0.1 million in the year-ago period.

Revenues in the Other Sports segment, which comprises lacrosse and soccer, increased 19% to $11.9 million. This was driven by 19% growth in lacrosse, including an 11% increase from CASCADE and growth in every equipment category of the MAVERIK brand. CASCADE benefited from the resumption of helmet shipments following the recertification of the R helmet and all other current models. MAVERIK continued to see strong demand for its new line of heads and shafts, as well as its new protective equipment and team gloves.

Other Sports EBITDA in the third quarter increased 11% to $2.1 million from $1.9 million in the year-ago period. This was driven by growth in lacrosse revenues, partially offset by lower gross margins in lacrosse due to higher inventory reserves and lower margins on lacrosse helmets as a result of changes required for the recertification of the CASCADE R helmet.

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-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.

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 and in the Company's MD&A for the third quarter under "Non-IFRS Reconciliations."

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.
