Canada Goose Said to File Confidentially for Dual-Listed IPOBy
Canada Goose Inc. has filed plans confidentially with U.S. regulators for a dual-listing in New York and Toronto, people with knowledge of the matter said.
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 the first quarter, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private.
A representative for Bain and Canada Goose didn’t immediately respond to calls and e-mails seeking comment.
Canada Goose is still determining how much it will raise in the initial public offering, one of the people said. It is aiming to sell somewhere between 10 percent to 15 percent of the company to the public, people familiar with the matter said. That would raise $200 million to $300 million at a value of about $2 billion, they said.
