Canada Goose Exceeds Expectations:  Sales at high-end coat maker Canada Goose Holdings Inc. soared, above projections, thanks to strong retail performance in the US and China. In early trading on the New York Stock Exchange, the company’s shares saw a substantial increase, gaining more than 12%.

 The Toronto-based firm reported C$358 million ($263 million) in sales for the fiscal fourth quarter ending March 31, which was higher than the average analyst expectation of C$316 million. With this outstanding result, sales are up 22% from the same period last year.

 Canada Goose has strategically bolstered its presence in the Asian market, where its premium parkas command prices as high as $2,000. Despite the region, home to over 40% of Canada Goose stores, still grappling with the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, the company’s initiatives in Asia have proven fruitful. The addition of three new permanent stores in the fourth quarter has significantly expanded the company’s footprint, a testament to our strategic foresight and adaptability.

 Canada Goose is strategically transitioning from wholesale to direct-to-consumer sales, a move that is expected to drive the company’s projected low single-digit revenue increase for fiscal year 2025 compared to 2024. The corporation also plans to implement price increases, a measure that is projected to boost profits. It anticipates a significant increase in adjusted profit per share compared to the prior year.

 Despite the global economic uncertainty, Canada Goose remains steadfast in its commitment to maintain operational discipline and implement cost-saving measures. The company is mindful of the potential impact of ongoing geopolitical tensions and high interest rates on consumer spending, and these factors are duly considered in its forecast. However, Canada Goose’s resolve to uphold operational discipline and implement cost-saving ideas remains unwavering.

 When comparing the fourth quarter of 2018 to the same period last year, sales in North America increased by around 25% and in greater China by about 30%.

 Canada Goose shares have rebounded after a minor dip earlier in the year, a testament to the faith our investors have in the firm’s solid results and promising future. We value our shareholders’ trust and remain committed to delivering strong financial performance and sustainable growth.
