TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 11, 2021-- Canada Goose Holdings Inc. (“Canada Goose” or the “Company”) (NYSE:GOOS, TSX:GOOS) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended June 27, 2021.

“Canada Goose is off to a great start in the first quarter,” said Dani Reiss, President & CEO. “Our digital business continued at a rapid pace of growth globally, alongside improving retail trends. With strong momentum in a less disrupted operating environment, and an exciting product pipeline - including our growing apparel business and footwear launch later this fall - we are well positioned for fiscal 2022.”

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Business Highlights (compared to First Quarter Fiscal 2021)

  • Global e-Commerce revenue increased by 80.8%.
  • Revenue increased significantly in all geographic regions. Despite elevated retail closures, Canada grew by 126.1%, excluding $7.0m of temporary PPE sales in the comparative quarter.
  • DTC revenue in Mainland China increased by 188.7%.

First Quarter Fiscal 2022 Results (compared to First Quarter Fiscal 2021)

  • Total revenue was $56.3m from $26.1m.
    • DTC revenue was $29.4m from $10.4m. The increase was driven by a lower level of COVID-19 disruptions, e-Commerce growth and new retail expansion, despite continued store traffic headwinds. Across our global store network, approximately 20% of total trading days were lost to temporary closures.
    • Wholesale revenue was $25.8m from $8.7m. The increase was a result of higher volume of shipments to wholesale and international distributor partners, driven by a lower level of COVID-19 disruptions.
    • Other revenue was $1.1m from $7.0m. The decrease was attributable to PPE sales in the comparative quarter, which were temporarily manufactured in support of COVID-19 response efforts.
  • Gross profit was $30.7m, a gross margin of 54.5%, compared to $4.8m and 18.4%.
    • DTC gross margin of 72.8%, compared to 66.3% (normalized from 82.7% as reported, adjusted for the impact of a $1.7m duty recovery related to shipments to Asia in the comparative quarter, which did not reoccur). The increase was driven by the favourable benefit of higher sales volumes from retail stores of $17.5m (+530 bps) and lower inventory provisions of $0.2m (+70 bps).
    • Wholesale gross margin of 35.3%, compared to 17.2%. The increase was driven by the favourable impact of a higher proportion of sales to our wholesale partners compared to international distributors of $10.6m (+1,470 bps).
    • Other segment gross profit was $0.2m from a gross loss of $(5.3)m.
  • Operating loss was $(60.7)m compared to $(59.3)m.
    • DTC operating loss of $(9.1)m, compared to $(12.2)m. The decrease in operating loss was attributable to a lower level of COVID-19 disruptions and the positive impact of e-Commerce growth.
    • Wholesale operating income of $0.2m, compared to operating loss of $(7.2)m. The increase in operating income was attributable to a higher segment revenue and gross profit.
    • Other operating loss was $(51.8)m from $(39.9)m. The increase in operating loss was attributable to $3.6m of incremental investment in marketing and strategic initiatives, $3.1m of higher performance-based compensation, and $3.7m of unfavourable foreign exchange fluctuations.
  • Net loss was $(56.7)m, or $(0.51) per diluted share, compared to $(50.1)m, or $(0.46) per diluted share.
  • Non-IFRS adjusted EBITwas $(60.2)m, compared to $(46.5)m.
  • Non-IFRS adjusted net loss was $(50.0)m, or $(0.45) per diluted share, compared to $(38.4)m, or $(0.35) per diluted share.
  • Cash was $305.9m as at quarter end, compared to $160.1m, alongside $313.7m of available borrowing capacity in the undrawn revolving facility.
  • Inventory was $404.5m as at quarter end, compared to $428.6m. The decrease was attributable to a reduction in finished goods of $22.4m, supported by sales growth and reduced production in fiscal 2021.

Fiscal 2022 Outlook

The Company reiterates the fiscal 2022 outlook which was issued on May 13, 2021, in the press release announcing results for fiscal 2021, on the basis of a gradual and progressive improvement in the COVID-19 landscape. For the second quarter of fiscal 2022, this outlook assumes low double digit Wholesale revenue growth, and DTC revenue at roughly one and a half times last year’s level. Within the meaning of applicable securities laws, this outlook constitutes forward looking information and financial outlook. Actual results could vary materially as a result of numerous factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. This includes risks and uncertainties relating to retail closures and disruptions to retail traffic as a result of COVID-19. See “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements”.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures

This press release includes references to certain non-IFRS financial measures such as adjusted EBIT, adjusted EBIT margin, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per basic and diluted share. These financial measures are employed by the Company to measure its operating and economic performance and to assist in business decision-making, as well as providing key performance information to senior management. The Company believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, certain investors and analysts use this information to evaluate the Company’s operating and financial performance. These financial measures are not defined under IFRS nor do they replace or supersede any standardized measure under IFRS. Other companies in our industry may calculate these measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Definitions and reconciliations of non-IFRS measures to the nearest IFRS measure can be found in our MD&A. Such reconciliations can also be found in this press release under “Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures”.

Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures

The tables below reconcile net loss to EBIT, adjusted EBIT, and adjusted net loss for the periods indicated. Adjusted EBIT margin is equal to adjusted EBIT for the period presented as a percentage of revenue for the same period.

  1. Unrealized gains and losses on the translation of the Term Loan Facility from USD to CAD, net of the effect of derivative transactions entered into to hedge a portion of the exposure to foreign currency exchange risk.
  2. Non-cash based compensation expense on stock options issued prior to the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”) under the Legacy Plan and cash payroll taxes paid of less than $0.1m (first quarter ended June 28, 2020 - $0.1m) on gains earned by option holders (compensation) when stock options are exercised.
  3. Net temporary store closure costs of $0.2m were incurred in the first quarter ended June 27, 2021. These were comprised of temporary store costs of $0.4m, partially offset by government subsidies of $0.2m in Europe. Globally, government subsidies of $8.7m were recognized in the first quarter ended June 28, 2020. Government subsidies were recorded as a reduction to excess overhead costs from temporary closure of manufacturing facilities ($1.3m), temporary store closure costs ($0.9m), and restructuring expense ($0.3m), for the first quarter ended June 28, 2020. The benefit of $6.2m of government subsidies therefore remained in adjusted EBIT as a reduction to the associated wage costs for the first quarter ended June 28, 2020.
  4. Costs incurred during pre-opening periods for new retail stores, including depreciation on right-of-use assets.
  5. Includes less than $0.1m of interest expense on lease liabilities for temporary store closures in the first quarter ended June 27, 2021 (first quarter ended June 28, 2020 - $1.2m).
  6. Pre-store opening costs incurred in (d) above plus $0.1m of interest expense on lease liabilities for new retail stores during pre-opening periods in the first quarter ended June 27, 2021 (first quarter ended June 28, 2020 - $0.2m).
  7. Costs incurred for the transition of logistics, warehousing, and freight forwarding agencies to enhance our global distribution structure.
  8. Costs in connection with the Baffin acquisition and the impact of gross margin that would otherwise have been recognized on inventory recorded at net realizable value less costs to sell.
  9. Non-cash unamortized costs accelerated in connection with the Term Loan Facility repricing amendment on April 9, 2021.
