Segment Results

During FY18, Canada Goose's Wholesale segment's revenues increased 16.5% to C$336.2 million compared to C$288.5 million in FY17, driven by an order book growth from existing accounts and higher re-order volumes late in the year.

The Wholesale segment's gross profit was C$157.8 million, with a gross margin of 46.9%, in FY18 compared to C$125.1 million and 43.3%, respectively, in FY17.

For FY18, Canada Goose's Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) segment's revenues soared 121.3% to C$255.0 million from C$115.2 million in FY17, driven by the strong performance of existing retail stores and ecommerce sites, including a full year of operations for Toronto and New York City retail stores, and incremental revenues from four new retail stores and eight national ecommerce sites opened during FY18.
