Canada Goose Holdings Inc. (GOOS) reported a 64% jump in earnings for the third quarter helped by higher order values, shipment timing, favorable forex, incremental revenue, and strong retail stores performance. The results exceeded analysts’ expectations. The premium outdoor apparel maker lifted its guidance for fiscal 2019.
Net income climbed 64.1% to C$103.4 million and earnings jumped 66.1% to C$0.93 per share. Adjusted earnings surged 65.5% to C$0.96 per share.
Revenue inched up 50.2% to C$399.3 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue grew by 49%. The results were positively impacted by the higher proportion of customers purchased product earlier in the second half of fiscal 2019 relative to the same period last year.
Wholesale revenue increased 22.2% on higher order values from existing partners, earlier shipment timing relative to last year, favorable foreign exchange fluctuations, and incremental revenue from the acquisition of the business of Baffin Inc. DTC revenue soared 78.7% on incremental revenue from five new retail stores and one new e-commerce site, as well as strong performance of existing retail stores and e-commerce sites.
Looking ahead into fiscal 2019, the company now expects revenue growth in the mid-to-high thirties on a percentage basis compared to the prior forecast of at least 30%. Adjusted EPS growth is now predicted to be in the mid-to-high forties on a percentage basis compared to at least 40% earlier expected.

Capital expenditures are anticipated to be about C$70 million including investments in new retail stores, IT and manufacturing capacity. Wholesale revenue growth is predicted to be in the mid-to-high teens on a percentage basis, compared to high-single-digits, due to sales outperformance in the channel year-to-date.
