Key Factors to Note

Canada Goose has been gaining from strong wholesale demand internationally, with Japan acting as a major growth driver in Asia. Further, the company remains focused on building production capacity. In this regard, its Montreal facility, which has been opened recently, is likely to have aided wholesale order shipments in the fiscal second quarter.

The company has been boosting traffic and expanding the base. Moreover, solid performance for the direct-to-consumer (“DTC”) channel is likely to have contributed to its top line in the fiscal second quarter. On its first earnings call, management had projected continuation of the positive momentum in non-parka categories in the fiscal second quarter.

However, the company has been witnessing elevated SG&A costs for the past few quarters due to increased investments in marketing and store openings. This might have affected the bottom line in the quarter under review.
