Canada Goose Planning for IPO & Seeking Valuation of about $2 billion


Canada Goose Inc. is planning to go public as soon as next month, people with knowledge of the matter said, in an initial public offering that could value the company at about $2 billion.

The Toronto-based retailer, backed by Bain Capital and known for its trademark $900 parkas with coyote fur-lined hoods, is aiming to go public in February or March, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.

Canada Goose is planning on selling 10 percent to 15 percent of the company to the public in both the U.S. and in its home country, said one of the people, implying an IPO size of $200 million to $300 million.

In 2013, when Bain acquired a majority stake in Canada Goose, the company was valued at about $250 million, the person said. Terms weren’t disclosed at the time.
