Revenue growth in Canada was largely driven by stores that were open in Q1 2023 which experienced closures due to COVID-19 restrictions in the comparative quarter. Q1 2023 revenue growth in the United States was largely driven by DTC comparable sales growth. EMEA revenue growth was largely driven by significant retail network expansion and stores that were open in Q1 2023 but had experienced closures due to COVID-19 restrictions in the comparative quarter. Asia Pacific revenue declined from Q1 2022 as eight out of 16 stores in Mainland China experienced closures due to COVID-19 restrictions in Q1 2023. All stores in the region had reopened as of the end of June 2022.

In addition, Q1 2023 revenue from Japan was minimal compared to Q1 2022 revenue of $9.3m as revenue recognition in this market will shift to later in the year due to the creation of Canada Goose Japan Joint Venture (“Japan Joint Venture”) with Sazaby League, Ltd. on April 4, 2022. The Japan Joint Venture agreement replaced an exclusive national distributor arrangement between Sazaby League, Ltd. and Canada Goose and sets the stage for the acceleration of growth in Japan, across both the DTC and Wholesale segments. As a result, revenue recognition for the Japan Joint Venture is expected to shift to later in the year which is more in line with the seasonality of the Wholesale and DTC segments for the rest of the Company. See “Joint Venture” in the Company’s Q1 2023 Management Discussion & Analysis for more detail.

6 EMEA comprises Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.

Gross profit and gross margin

The increase in gross profit was largely attributable to higher revenue as noted above and gross margin expansion. Q1 2023 gross margin was favourably impacted by pricing, and lower product costs due to increased production efficiencies. The gross margin in Wholesale also benefited from product mix driven by higher parka sales on customer requests for earlier shipments compared to Q1 2022. These benefits were partially offset by an unfavourable region mix with higher North American revenue and lower revenue in Asia Pacific as well as an unfavourable impact from the fair value inventory acquisition adjustment related to the Japan Joint Venture.

Operating loss and adjusted EBIT

Operating loss increased and adjusted EBIT decreased compared to Q1 2022 primarily due to the timing of $12.6m in marketing investments (which occurred earlier in the year compared to fiscal 2022) to drive brand salience ahead of our peak season, $6.9m in higher costs related to opening new stores and running stores at full capacity, $3.8m investment in strategic initiatives including digital, and $2.9m in costs to support the new Japan Joint Venture.

Net loss and adjusted net loss

Net loss and adjusted net loss was higher compared to Q1 2022 as a result of factors described above. In addition, net loss in Q1 2022 included a $9.5m charge for acceleration of amortization costs related to the refinancing of our term loan.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Cash was $81.8m as at Q1 ended July 3, 2022, compared to $305.9m as at Q1 ended June 27, 2021 largely due to share repurchases in fiscal 2022 for a total cash consideration of $253.2m, and a greater investment in working capital.

Inventory was $504.7m as at Q1 ended July 3, 2022, compared to $404.5m as at Q1 ended June 27, 2021. Of the increase, $27.3m was acquired upon entering the Japan Joint Venture. Inventory levels increased ahead of our peak selling season as domestic production gradually returns to pre-pandemic manufacturing levels and supply chain risks are mitigated by earlier acquisition of offshore production than in the comparative quarter. The Company is seeing significant growth in the proportion of non-parka inventory as nearly 59% of our inventory units comprises non-parka compared to nearly 44% as we broaden our collection. More inventory is being held in Asia Pacific in the current quarter as the size of that business grows in anticipation of peak season with more points of distribution across the region. The Company’s management is monitoring the levels of inventory in the sales channels and across geographic regions and aligning with the forecasted demand in each region.

Second Quarter and Full Year Fiscal 2023 Outlook

For fiscal 2023, the Company currently expects:

  • Total revenue $1.300Bn to $1.400Bn.
  • Non-IFRS adjusted EBIT $250m to $290m, representing a margin of 19.2% to 20.7%.
  • Non-IFRS adjusted net income per diluted share $1.60 to $1.90.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company currently expects:

  • Total revenue $255m to $275m.
  • Non-IFRS adjusted EBIT $8.0m to $18.0m.
  • Non-IFRS adjusted net income per diluted share $0.02 to $0.14.

This outlook is based on a number of assumptions for fiscal 2023, including the following:

  • Improved traffic and lower levels of operating disruptions globally, including mandatory closures, in both Company and partner operated retail stores, relative to fiscal 2022.
  • With respect to Mainland China’s contribution, the lower end of the Company’s full year guidance ranges for revenue and profitability assumes there will continue to be limited, periodic COVID-19 disruptions in the region during our peak season and the higher end of the ranges assumes a return to regular trading levels during our peak season in Mainland China.
  • The Company expects $60m to $65m in total revenue in fiscal 2023 from the Japan Joint Venture, which is roughly double the contribution from the Japanese market in fiscal 2022.
  • Approximate % of fiscal 2023 total revenue by quarter: Q2 20%, Q3 50%, Q4 25%
  • DTC % of total revenue 70% to 73%, driven by low to high teens comparable sales growth and continued channel expansion.
  • Wholesale revenue growth of 6%.
  • Gross margin in the high 60s as a % of total revenue, with expansion driven by DTC mix shift.
  • Effective tax rate in the low 20s as a % of income before taxes for fiscal 2023.
  • Weighted average diluted shares outstanding of 107.7m for fiscal 2023.

Within the meaning of applicable securities laws, this outlook constitutes forward-looking information. The purpose of this outlook is to provide a description of management's expectations regarding the Company's financial performance and may not be appropriate for other purposes. Actual results could vary materially as a result of numerous factors, including the extent and duration of operational disruptions that may affect our business as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and other risk factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s control. See “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements”.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Other Specified Financial Measures

This press release includes references to certain non-IFRS financial measures such as adjusted EBIT, adjusted net loss and constant currency revenue and certain non-IFRS ratios such as, adjusted EBIT margin, adjusted net loss attributable to shareholders of the Company and adjusted net loss per basic and diluted share attributable to the shareholders of the Company. 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” and, in the case of constant currency revenue, under “Revenue”.

This press release also includes DTC comparable sales growth which is a supplementary financial measure defined as sales on a constant currency basis from e-Commerce sites and stores which have been operating for one full year (12 successive fiscal months). The measure excludes store sales from both periods for the specific trading days when the stores were closed, whether those closures occurred in the current period or the comparative period.

Reconciliation of Non-IFRS Measures

The tables below reconcile net loss to adjusted EBIT and adjusted net loss attributable to shareholders of the Company 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.
