900 coat maker Canada Goose to sell shares

The company issued a $100m (80m) placeholder filing, but could raise as much as $300m, valuing the company at $2bn, according to Bloomberg news.

Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and RBC Capital Markets will organise the share sale, according to the filing.

The company has seen rapid growth of late. It booked 291 million Canadian dollars in sales in the year to the end of March 2016, up from 218 million a year earlier.

In December 2013, Bain Capital bought 70% in the business to accelerate its growth. It charges the company a management fee for its expertise.

While using fur and down in its coats, the company says “down only comes as a by product from the poultry industry and has not come from live plucked or force fed birds”. Its fur comes from regulated trappers and not fur farms, it says. The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites. Read about our approach to external linking.
