“I am very pleased to report a strong finish to a year that included outstanding growth and significant accomplishments as we continue to build an enduring legacy,” said Dani Reiss, president and CEO of Canada Goose. “The year marked several milestones for us: we continued our rapid top and bottom line growth, opened our first two flagship retail stores – both of which far surpassed our expectations — and solidified our position as a three-season brand by introducing our strongest spring collection yet, and began our journey as a public company.”
Looking ahead, Canada Goose expects the execution of its growth strategies to continue to drive increases in revenue in the mid-to-high teens, along with growth in adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per share over the next three fiscal years.
“I believe our strong performance in fiscal 2017 clearly demonstrates the tremendous power of the Canada Goose brand and continued demand for our best-in-class products around the globe, as well as our ability to deliver products of the highest quality, craftsmanship and functionality,” added Reiss.
