BRP TO DONATE WARM CLOTHING TO JAPAN

VALCOURT, QC, April 14 /CNW Telbec/ - BRP will donate warm clothing to relief efforts in Japan. The clothing was distributed to its subsidiary, BRP Japan, who will redirect it to people most in need.

"The Japan earthquake and tsunami has left so many homeless during such a cold time of the year," said José Boisjoli, president and CEO. "We hope that by providing direct relief, we can ease some of the hardships felt by survivors. On behalf of all BRP employees, our thoughts are with them."

BRP has operated a direct distribution network in Kanagawa prefecture, Japan since February 2000, which was not affected by the March 11 event.

Transport of the clothing to Narita airport from Europe was partially sponsored by FedEx, and from Australia by Trade Logistics.
