Note 1.     The Company
Organization
Canada Goose Holdings Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) design, manufacture, and sell performance luxury apparel for men, women, youth, children, and babies. The Company’s product offerings include various styles of parkas, lightweight down jackets, rainwear, windwear, apparel, fleece, footwear, and accessories for the fall, winter, and spring seasons. The Company’s head office is located at 250 Bowie Avenue, Toronto, Canada M6E 4Y2. The use of the terms “Canada Goose”, “we”, and “our” throughout these notes to the condensed consolidated interim financial statements ("Interim Financial Statements") refer to the Company.
Canada Goose is a public company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange under the trading symbol “GOOS”. The principal shareholders of the Company are investment funds advised by Bain Capital LP and its affiliates (“Bain Capital”), and DTR LLC ("DTR"), an entity indirectly controlled by the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company. The principal shareholders hold multiple voting shares representing 48.4% of the total shares outstanding as at October 2, 2022, or 90.4% of the combined voting power of the total voting shares outstanding. Subordinate voting shares that trade on public markets represent 51.6% of the total shares outstanding as at October 2, 2022, or 9.6% of the combined voting power of the total voting shares outstanding.
Statement of compliance
The Interim Financial Statements are prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard (“IAS”) 34, Interim Financial Reporting, as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”). Certain information, which is considered material to the understanding of the Interim Financial Statements and is normally included in the annual financial statements prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the IASB, is not provided in these notes. These Interim Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Financial Statements for the year ended April 3, 2022.
The Interim Financial Statements were authorized for issuance in accordance with a resolution of the Company’s Board of Directors on November 1, 2022.
Seasonality
Our business is seasonal, and we have historically realized a significant portion of our Wholesale revenue and operating income in the second and third quarters of the fiscal year and Direct-to-Consumer ("DTC") revenue and operating income in the third and fourth quarters of the fiscal year. Thus, lower-than-expected revenue in these periods could have an adverse impact on our annual operating results.
Cash flows from operating activities are typically highest in the third and fourth quarters of the fiscal year due to revenue from the DTC segment and the collection of trade receivables from Wholesale revenue earlier in the year. Working capital requirements typically increase as inventory builds.

Note 2.    Significant accounting policies and critical accounting estimates and judgments
Basis of presentation
The significant accounting policies and critical accounting estimates and judgments as disclosed in the Company's Annual Financial Statements for the year ended April 3, 2022 have been applied consistently in the preparation of these Interim Financial Statements except as noted below. The Interim Financial Statements are presented in Canadian dollars, the Company’s functional and presentation currency.
The Company's fiscal year is a 52 or 53-week reporting cycle with the fiscal year ending on the Sunday closest to March 31. Each fiscal quarter is 13 weeks for a 52-week fiscal year. The additional week in a 53-week fiscal year is added to the third quarter.
Certain comparative figures have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation. Depreciation and amortization for amounts not included in costs of goods sold, which were previously presented in a separate line item, are reflected in the presentation of selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses.
COVID-19 pandemic
Globally, public health officials have imposed restrictions and recommended precautions to mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic ("COVID-19"). While restrictions have been lifted to varying degrees in markets around the world, we continue to be impacted to some extent. In the second quarter of fiscal 2023, store operations have largely resumed with the exception of the Asia Pacific region. In the second quarter of fiscal 2023, four out of 23 retail stores in Asia Pacific experienced store closures related to COVID-19. Trading days lost due to temporary closures of our retail locations as well as reduced traffic and store productivity did not materially impact results for the second quarter of fiscal 2023.
As a result of the temporary store closures, net costs of $0.3m and $2.5m were recognized in SG&A expenses and net interest, finance and other costs during the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, respectively (second and two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - less than $0.1m and $0.2m, respectively).
Management assessed whether indicators of impairment existed as at October 2, 2022 in accordance with IAS 36, Impairment of Assets, and no indicators were identified.
Principles of consolidation
The Interim Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries and those investments over which the Company has control. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.
Operating segments
The Company classifies its business in three operating and reportable segments: DTC, Wholesale, and Other. The DTC segment comprises sales through country-specific e-Commerce platforms and our Company-operated retail stores located in luxury shopping locations.
The Wholesale segment comprises sales made to a mix of retailers and international distributors, who are partners that have exclusive rights to an entire market.

Canada Goose Holdings Inc.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements
(unaudited)
The Other segment comprises sales and costs not directly allocated to the DTC or Wholesale channels, such as sales to employees and SG&A expenses. The Other segment includes the cost of marketing expenditures to build brand awareness across all segments, corporate costs in support of manufacturing operations, other corporate costs, and foreign exchange gains and losses not specifically associated with DTC or Wholesale segment operations.
Summary of accounting policies adopted
Non-controlling interest
In connection with the Japan Joint Venture (refer to note 3), a non-controlling interest accounting policy was adopted. At the date of acquisition, the Company elected to measure the non-controlling interest for the Japan Joint Venture based on the proportionate share of the acquiree's identifiable net assets. Transactions with non-controlling interests are treated as transactions with equity owners of the Company. Changes in the Company's ownership interest of CG Japan (refer to note 3) are accounted for as equity transactions.
Financial instruments
In connection with the Japan Joint Venture (refer to note 3), the Company established a financial liability for the put option in respect of non-controlling interests based on the present value of the amount expected to be paid to the non-controlling shareholder if exercised. Subsequently, the put option liability is adjusted to reflect changes in the present value of the amount that could be required to be paid at each reporting date, with fluctuations being recorded within the interim statements of income (loss), until it is exercised or expires. The put option is measured at fair value through profit or loss and the fair value of the put option is classified as Level 3 in accordance with IFRS 13, Fair value measurement.
Standards issued and not yet adopted
Certain new standards, amendments, and interpretations to existing IFRS standards have been published but are not yet effective and have not been adopted early by the Company. Management anticipates that pronouncements will be adopted in the Company’s accounting policies for the first period beginning after the effective date of the pronouncement. Information on new standards, amendments, and interpretations is provided below.
In January 2020, the IASB issued an amendment to IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements to clarify its requirements for the presentation of liabilities in the statement of financial position. The limited scope amendment affected only the presentation of liabilities in the statement of financial position and not the amount or timing of its recognition. The amendment clarified that the classification of liabilities as current or non-current is based on rights that are in existence at the end of the reporting period and specified that classification is unaffected by expectations about whether an entity will exercise its right to defer settlement of a liability. It also introduced a definition of ‘settlement’ to make clear that settlement refers to the transfer to the counterparty of cash, equity instruments, other assets or services. The amendment is effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2024. Earlier application is permitted. The Company is assessing the potential impact of the amendment.
Standards issued and adopted
Configuration or Customization Costs in a Cloud Computing Arrangement
In April 2021, the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee (“IFRIC”) finalized an agenda decision within the scope of IAS 38, Intangible Assets which clarified the accounting of configuration and customization costs in cloud computing arrangements often referred to as

Canada Goose Holdings Inc.
Page 8 of 35


Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements
(unaudited)
Software as a Service ("SaaS") arrangements. As a result of the decision, costs that do not meet the capitalization criteria for intangible assets are expensed as incurred.
The adoption of the agenda decision was recognized as a change in accounting policy in accordance with IAS 8, Accounting Policies, Changes in Accounting Estimates and Errors ("IAS 8"). The Company amended the existing accounting policies related to implementation costs on SaaS arrangements as at April 1, 2019. The Company assessed the impact of the interpretation and identified $25.4m of costs recognized as intangible assets within ERP and computer software related to SaaS arrangements that were no longer eligible for capitalization and amortization in accordance with the agenda decision. As a result, these costs were written off as at April 1, 2019 as these costs would have been required to be expensed in the period incurred.
In accordance with IAS 8, retrospective application is required for accounting policy changes and comparative financial information was restated in these interim financial statements. Refer to the Company's Annual Financial Statements for the year ended April 3, 2022 for information on the opening balance sheet as a result of the retrospective application. The following tables outline the impacts of the restatements on the comparative periods:

Interest Rate Benchmark Reform
In August 2020, the IASB issued “Interest Rate Benchmark Reform – Phase II (amendments to IFRS 9, Financial Instruments; IFRS 7, Financial Instruments: Disclosures; IAS 39, Financial Instruments: Recognition and Measurement; IFRS 4, Insurance Contracts and IFRS 16, Leases)”, which addresses issues that affect financial reporting once an existing benchmark rate is replaced with an alternative rate and provides specific disclosure requirements. The amendments introduce a practical expedient for modifications required by the Interbank Offer Rate (“IBOR”) reform. The amendments relate to the modification of financial instruments where the basis for determining the contractual cash flows changes as a result of the IBOR reform, allowing for prospective application of the alternative rate. A similar practical expedient exists for lessee accounting under IFRS 16. It also relates to the application of hedge accounting, which is not discontinued solely because of the IBOR reform. Hedging relationships, including formal designation and documentation, must be amended to reflect modifications to the hedged item, however, the practical expedient allows the hedge relationship to continue, although additional ineffectiveness may be required. The amendments are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2021. A broader market-wide initiative is underway to transition the various IBOR based on rates in use to alternative reference rates. The Company’s term loan facility at a net book value of $406.8m, is impacted by the IBOR reform. As such, the reformed IFRS guidance has been adopted, however, accounting under the adopted standard will take place once IBOR related arrangements are modified, which constitutes as an accounting event. As no accounting events have occurred to date, the Company has determined there is no financial reporting impact as of October 2, 2022. The Company is in discussions with its lenders and is currently determining if any modifications will meet the requirements for the application of the practical expedient.

Note 3.    Business combination
The Company and a former distributor of the Company's products in Japan, Sazaby League, Ltd. ("Sazaby League"), entered into an agreement (the "Joint Venture Agreement") to form a joint venture (the “Japan Joint Venture”) pursuant to which the Company acquired 50% of the issued and outstanding voting shares of the legal entity comprising the joint venture, Canada Goose Japan, K.K. (“CG Japan”), on April 4, 2022. CG Japan was established to market, distribute and sell Canada Goose products, and to operate retail stores and e-Commerce in Japan.
Prior to the establishment of CG Japan, the Company sold its products to the former distributor. The majority of sales historically occurred in the first and second quarters and were recorded in the Wholesale operating segment. Subsequent to the transaction, the Company will consolidate the results of CG Japan and revenue and results of operations will be aligned to the respective operating segments and are expected to occur more in line with the seasonality of the Company's Wholesale and DTC segments.
Management performed an analysis under IFRS 10, Consolidated Financial Statements and since the Company has the power to direct the relevant activities of CG Japan, is exposed to variable returns, and can use its power to influence those returns, management determined that the Company has control over CG Japan for accounting purposes. In addition, management performed an analysis under IFRS 3, Business Combinations and has determined that the Company is the acquirer of CG Japan. Management determined that the assets and processes acquired comprised a business and therefore, accounted for the transaction as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting. Under the acquisition method, assets and liabilities of the acquiree are recorded at their fair values.
The Company paid cash consideration to CG Japan of JPY250.0m ($2.6m) plus deferred contingent consideration to the non-controlling shareholder with an estimated fair value of JPY1,958.9m ($20.0m) resulting in total consideration of JPY2,208.9m ($22.6m). The deferred contingent consideration is payable if an agreed cumulative adjusted EBIT target is not reached through the period ended June 30, 2026. The fair value of the applicable contingent consideration is determined based on the estimated financial outcome and the resulting expected contingent consideration to be paid, discounted using an appropriate rate. As at April 4, 2022, the contingent consideration amount has been recorded in other long-term liabilities. The amount of contingent consideration is remeasured at its fair value each reporting period, with changes in fair value recorded in the consolidated statement of income and comprehensive income (loss). The Company recorded a decrease of JPY388.2m ($3.7m, excluding translation losses of $1.3m) on the remeasurement of the contingent consideration during the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, resulting in the fair value of the contingent consideration of JPY1,570.7m ($15.0m). The gain on the fair value remeasurement was recorded within net interest, finance and other costs in the consolidated interim statements of income (loss).
The Company incurred $0.2m and $1.0m, in transaction related costs which are included in SG&A expenses in the consolidated interim statements of income (loss) and consolidated interim statements of comprehensive income (loss) for the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, respectively. For the year ended April 3, 2022, the Company incurred $0.7m in transaction related costs.

The determination of the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed is based on preliminary estimates and certain assumptions with respect to the fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed and are expected to be finalized within one year of the acquisition.
Goodwill is calculated as the difference between total consideration and the fair value of the net assets acquired and is attributable to expected synergies between CG Japan and the Company’s existing operations. Goodwill of $11.8m was recognized as the excess of the acquisition cost over the fair value of net identifiable assets at the date of acquisition. Goodwill recognized is not expected to be deductible for income tax purposes. Intangible assets of $12.1m relate to the fair value of the customer list and reacquired distribution rights of the Japan market, which will be amortized over a 10-year period.

The fair value of property, plant and equipment and right-of-use assets was based on management’s assessment of the acquired assets’ condition, as well as an evaluation of the current market value for such assets. In addition, the Company considered the length of time over which the economic benefit of these assets is expected to be realized and estimated the useful life of such assets as of the acquisition date. The fair value of inventories has been measured at net realizable value, less cost to sell. Final valuations of certain assets and liabilities including inventory, property, plant and equipment, intangible assets, right-of-use assets, other assets and warranty provisions are not yet complete due to the inherent complexity associated with valuations. Therefore, the purchase price allocation is preliminary and is subject to adjustment upon completion of the valuation process.
CG Japan’s results are consolidated into the Company’s financial results effective April 4, 2022. For the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, CG Japan contributed approximately $13.8m and $14.3m to the Company’s consolidated revenue, respectively, and $(0.9)m and $(3.5)m to the Company’s operating loss, respectively.
In connection with the business combination, the Joint Venture Agreement includes a put option that allows the non-controlling shareholder to sell its 50% interest to the Company within six months after certain circumstances constituting a "put option trigger" event occurs. If the put option is not exercised during such six-month period the put option will expire. The Company established a financial liability for the put option in respect of non-controlling interests. The fair value of the put option is classified as Level 3 within IFRS 13, Fair value measurement. As at April 4, 2022, the fair value of the put option held in Japanese yen by the non-controlling shareholder is recorded in other long-term liabilities in the amount of JPY2,076.4m ($21.2m).
The Company recorded the put option liability based on the present value of the amount expected to be paid to the non-controlling shareholder if exercised. Subsequently, the put option liability is adjusted to reflect changes in the present value of the amount that could be required to be paid at each reporting date, with fluctuations being recorded within the Company's consolidated interim statements of income (loss), until it is exercised or expires. The Company recorded an increase of JPY174.9m ($1.7m, excluding translation losses of $1.4m) on the remeasurement of the put option liability during the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, resulting in a balance of JPY2,251.3m ($21.5m). The loss on the fair value remeasurement was recorded within net interest, finance and other costs in the interim statements of income (loss).

Share capital transactions for the two quarters ended September 26, 2021
Normal course issuer bid
The Board of Directors of the Company has authorized the Company to initiate a normal course issuer bid ("NCIB"), in accordance with the requirements of the Toronto Stock Exchange, to purchase up to 5,943,239 subordinate voting shares over the 12-month period from August 20, 2021 to August 19, 2022. Purchased subordinate voting shares were subsequently cancelled.
Further, the Board of Directors had authorized the Company to initiate an automatic share purchase plan ("ASPP") under which a designated broker could purchase subordinate voting shares under the NCIB during the regularly scheduled quarterly trading blackout period. The repurchases made under the ASPP were made in accordance with certain purchasing parameters. The ASPP ended August 19, 2022 upon the date of expiry of the NCIB.
During the two quarters ended September 26, 2021, the Company purchased 3,802,436 subordinate voting shares for cancellation for total cash consideration of $179.6m and a payable to the designated broker of $4.6m. The amount to purchase the subordinate voting shares was charged to share capital, with the remaining $176.3m charged to retained earnings. Of the 3,802,436 subordinate voting shares purchased, 987,088 were purchased under the ASPP for total cash consideration of $42.1m.
A liability representing the maximum amount that the Company could be required to pay the designated broker under the ASPP was $3.3m as at September 26, 2021. The amount was charged to contributed surplus. Subsequent to the two quarters ended September 26, 2021, the Company purchased an additional 62,700 subordinate voting shares for cancellation for total cash consideration of $3.0m under the ASPP. The ASPP has concluded and the remaining liability to the designated broker is $nil.

Restricted share units
Under the Omnibus Plan, the Company has granted RSUs to employees of the Company. The RSUs are treated as equity instruments for accounting purposes. We expect that vested RSUs will be paid at settlement through the issuance of one subordinate voting share per RSU. The RSUs vest over a period of three years, a third on each anniversary of the date of grant.

During the second quarter ended October 2, 2022, the Company amended the Omnibus Plan to replenish and increase the number of shares reserved for issuance under the plan by the addition of 5,266,699 subordinate voting shares of the Company.
As at October 2, 2022, subordinate voting shares, to a maximum of 6,575,650 shares, have been reserved for issuance under equity incentive plans to select employees of the Company, with vesting contingent upon meeting the service, performance goals and other conditions of the Omnibus Plan.
Accounting for share-based awards
For the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, the Company recorded $4.3m and $7.0m, respectively, as contributed surplus and compensation expense for the vesting of stock options and RSUs (second and two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - $4.2m and $6.9m, respectively). Share-based compensation expense is included in SG&A expenses.
The assumptions used to measure the fair value of options granted under the Black-Scholes option pricing model at the grant date were as follows:

Note 14.    Related party transactions
The Company enters into transactions from time to time with its principal shareholders and organizations affiliated with members of the Board of Directors by incurring expenses for business services. During the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, the Company incurred expenses with related parties of $0.2m and $0.5m, respectively (second and two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - $0.4m and $0.6m, respectively) from companies related to certain shareholders.

Note 16.    Financial risk management objectives and policies
The Company’s primary risk management objective is to protect the Company’s assets and cash flow, in order to increase the Company’s enterprise value.
The Company is exposed to capital management risk, liquidity risk, credit risk, market risk, foreign exchange risk, and interest rate risk. The Company’s senior management and Board of Directors oversee the management of these risks. The Board of Directors reviews and agrees upon policies for managing each of these risks which are summarized below.
Capital management
The Company manages its capital and capital structure with the objectives of safeguarding sufficient net working capital over the annual operating cycle and providing sufficient financial resources to grow operations to meet long-term consumer demand. The Board of Directors of the Company monitors the Company’s capital management on a regular basis. The Company will continually assess the adequacy of the Company’s capital structure and capacity and make adjustments within the context of the Company’s strategy, economic conditions, and risk characteristics of the business.
Liquidity risk
Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they fall due. The Company’s approach to managing liquidity is to ensure, as far as possible, that it will always have sufficient liquidity to satisfy the requirements for business operations, capital expenditures, debt service and general corporate purposes, under normal and stressed conditions. The primary source of liquidity is funds generated by operating activities; the Company also relies on the revolving facility, the Mainland China Facilities, and the Japan Facility as sources of funds for short term working capital needs. The Company continuously reviews both actual and forecasted cash flows to ensure that the Company has appropriate capital capacity.

As at October 2, 2022, we had additional liabilities which included provisions for warranty, sales returns, asset retirement obligations, deferred income tax liabilities, as well as the put option liability and the contingent consideration on the Japan Joint Venture. These liabilities have not been included in the table above as the timing and amount of future payments are uncertain.
Letter of guarantee facility
On April 14, 2020, Canada Goose Inc. entered into a letter of guarantee facility in the amount of $10.0m. Letters of guarantee are available for terms of up to twelve months and will be charged a fee equal to 1.2% per annum calculated against the face amount and over the term of the guarantee. Amounts issued on the facility will be used to finance working capital requirements of Canada Goose Inc. through letters of guarantee, standby letters of credit, performance bonds, counter guarantees, counter standby letters of credit, or similar credits. The Company immediately reimburses the issuing bank for amounts drawn on issued letters of guarantees. At October 2, 2022, the Company had $6.3m outstanding.
In addition, a subsidiary of the Company in Mainland China entered into letters of guarantee and as at October 2, 2022 the amount outstanding was $5.4m. Amounts will be used to support retail operations of such subsidiaries through letters of guarantee, standby letters of credit, performance bonds, counter guarantees, counter standby letters of credit, or similar credits.
Credit risk
Credit risk is the risk that a counterparty will not meet its obligations under a financial instrument or customer contract, leading to a financial loss.
Credit risk arises from the possibility that certain parties will be unable to discharge their obligations. The Company manages its credit risk through a combination of third party credit insurance and internal house risk. Credit insurance is provided by a third party for customers and is subject to continuous monitoring of the credit worthiness of the Company's customers. Insurance covers a specific amount of revenue, which may be less than the Company's total revenue with a specific customer. The Company has an agreement with a third party who has insured the risk of loss for up to 90% of accounts receivable from certain designated customers

subject to a total deductible of $0.1m, to a maximum of $30.0m per year. As at October 2, 2022, accounts receivable totaling approximately $93.3m (September 26, 2021 - $52.9m, April 3, 2022 - $8.1m) were insured subject to the policy cap. Complementary to the third party insurance, the Company establishes payment terms with customers to mitigate credit risk and continues to closely monitor its accounts receivable credit risk exposure.
Within CG Japan, the Company has an agreement with a third party who has insured the risk of loss for up to 45% of accounts receivable for a maximum of JPY450.0m per annum subject to a deductible of 10%. As at October 2, 2022, accounts receivable totaling approximately $4.3m (JPY450.0m) were insured subject to the policy cap.
Trade accounts receivable factoring program
A subsidiary of the Company in Europe has an agreement to factor, on a limited recourse basis, certain of its trade accounts receivable up to a limit of €20.0m in exchange for advanced funding equal to 100% of the principal value of the invoice.
For the two quarters ended October 2, 2022, the Company received cash proceeds from the sale of trade accounts receivable with carrying values of $20.0m which were derecognized from the Company's statement of financial position (two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - $7.8m). Fees of $0.1m were incurred during the two quarters ended October 2, 2022 (two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - less than $0.1m) and included in net interest, finance and other costs in the interim statements of income (loss). As at October 2, 2022, the outstanding amount of trade accounts receivable derecognized from the Company’s statement of financial position, but which the Company continued to service, was $13.5m (September 26, 2021 - $5.7m, April 3, 2022 - $2.0m).
Market risk
Market risk is the risk that the fair value of future cash flows of a financial instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Market prices comprise foreign exchange risk and interest rate risk.
Foreign exchange risk
Foreign exchange risk in operating cash flows
The Company’s Interim Financial Statements are expressed in Canadian dollars, but a substantial portion of the Company’s revenues, purchases, and expenses are denominated in other currencies, principally U.S. dollars, euros, British pounds sterling, Swiss francs, Chinese yuan, Hong Kong dollars and since the formation of the Japan Joint Venture, Japanese yen. The Company has entered into forward foreign exchange contracts to reduce the foreign exchange risk associated with revenues, purchases, and expenses denominated in these currencies. Certain forward foreign exchange contracts were designated at inception and accounted for as cash flow hedges. During the second quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company initiated the operating hedge program for the fiscal year ending April 2, 2023.
Revenues and expenses of all foreign operations are translated into Canadian dollars at the foreign currency exchange rates that approximate the rates in effect at the dates when such items are recognized. As a result, we are exposed to foreign currency translation gains and losses. Appreciating foreign currencies relative to the Canadian dollar, to the extent they are not hedged, will positively impact operating income and net income by increasing our revenue, while depreciating foreign currencies relative to the Canadian dollar will have the opposite impact.

For the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022, unrealized gains of $11.0m and $23.4m, respectively (second and two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - unrealized gains of $7.6m and $0.1m, respectively) in the fair value of the long-dated forward exchange contract related to a portion of the term loan balance were recognized in SG&A expenses in the interim statements of income (loss).
Interest rate risk
The Company is exposed to interest rate risk related to the effect of interest rate changes on the borrowings outstanding under the Mainland China Facilities, Japan Facility, the revolving facility, and the term loan, which currently bear interest rates at 3.85%, 0.37%, 4.98%, and 7.14%, respectively.
Based on the weighted average amount of outstanding borrowings, a 1.00% increase in the average interest rate during the two quarters ended October 2, 2022 would have increased interest expense on the Mainland China Facilities, the revolving facility, and the term loan by less than $0.1m, $0.1m, and $1.9m, respectively (two quarters ended September 26, 2021 - less than $0.1m, less than $0.1m, and $1.9m, respectively). Correspondingly, a 1.00% increase in the average interest rate would have increased interest expense on our Japan Facility by $0.1m.
The Company entered into five-year interest rate swaps by fixing the LIBOR component of its interest rate at 0.95% on notional debt of US$270.0m. The swaps terminate on December 31, 2025. The applicable interest rate on the interest rate swaps is 4.45%. The interest rate swaps were designated at inception and accounted for as cash flow hedges.
Interest rate risk on the term loan is partially mitigated by interest rate swap hedges. The impact on future interest expense as a result of future changes in interest rates will depend largely on the gross amount of borrowings at that time.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
For the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022
The following Management’s Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) for Canada Goose Holdings Inc. (“us,” “we,” “our,” “Canada Goose” or the “Company”) is dated November 1, 2022 and provides information concerning our results of operations and financial condition for the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022. All figures are presented in Canadian (“CAD”) dollars, unless otherwise noted. You should read this MD&A together with our unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements as at and for the second and two quarters ended October 2, 2022 (“Interim Financial Statements”) and our audited consolidated financial statements and the related notes for the fiscal year ended April 3, 2022 (“Annual Financial Statements”). Additional information about Canada Goose is available on our website at www.canadagoose.com, on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com, and on the EDGAR section of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) website at www.sec.gov, including our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended April 3, 2022 (“Annual Report”).
CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD‑LOOKING STATEMENTS
This MD&A contains forward-looking statements. These statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, and other future conditions. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “should,” “will,” “would,” and other similar expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These forward-looking statements include all matters that are not historical facts. They appear in many places throughout this MD&A and include statements regarding our intentions, beliefs, or current expectations concerning, among other things, our results of operations, financial condition, liquidity, business prospects, growth, strategies, expectations regarding industry trends and the size and growth rates of addressable markets, our business plan, and our growth strategies, including plans for expansion to new markets and new products, expectations for seasonal trends, and the industry in which we operate.
Certain assumptions made in preparing the forward-looking statements contained in this MD&A include:
our ability to continue operating our business amid the societal, political, and economic disruption caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic (“COVID-19”) and recent and ongoing geopolitical events;
limited disruption to our DTC channel, including store closures, whether caused by COVID-19 and recent and ongoing geopolitical events or other events;
our ability to implement our growth strategies;
our ability to maintain strong business relationships with our customers, suppliers, wholesalers, and distributors;

our ability to keep pace with changing consumer preferences;
our ability to protect our intellectual property;
the continued absence of material global supply chain disruptions to our business and ability to fulfill demand and maintain sufficient inventory levels, which we continue to monitor; and
the absence of material adverse changes in our industry or the global economy.
By their nature, forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future. We believe that these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those described in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report and other risk factors described herein, which include, but are not limited to, the following risks:
risks and global disruptions associated with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and geopolitical events, which may further affect general economic and operating conditions;
additional potential closures or retail traffic disruptions impacting our retail stores and the retail stores of our wholesale partners as a result of COVID-19;
we may not open new retail stores or expand e-Commerce access on our planned timelines;
we may be unable to maintain the strength of our brand or to expand our brand to new products and geographies;
unanticipated changes in the effective tax rate or adverse outcomes from audit examinations of corporate income or other tax returns;
our indebtedness may adversely affect our financial condition, and we may not be able to refinance or renegotiate such indebtedness on favourable or satisfactory terms;
an economic downturn and general economic conditions (for example, inflation and rising interest rates) may further affect discretionary consumer spending;
we may not be able to satisfy changing consumer preferences;
global political events, including the impact of political disruptions and protests, which may cause business interruptions;
our ability to procure high quality raw materials and certain finished goods globally;
our ability to manage inventory and forecast our inventory need and to manage our production distribution networks. In anticipation of our expected growth and as an important hedge against inflation, we have built up our inventory to elevated levels. If our supply exceeds demand, we may be required to take certain actions to reduce inventory which could damage our brand;
we may not be able to protect or preserve our brand image and proprietary rights;
the success of our business strategy;
our ability to manage our exposure to data security and cyber security events;

disruptions to manufacturing and distribution activities due to such factors as operational issues, disruptions in transportation logistic functions or labour shortages or disruptions;
fluctuations in raw material costs, interest rates and currency exchange rates; and
we may be unable to maintain effective internal controls over financial reporting.
Although we base the forward-looking statements contained in this MD&A on assumptions that we believe are reasonable, we caution you that actual results and developments (including our results of operations, financial condition and liquidity, and the development of the industry in which we operate) may differ materially from those made in or suggested by the forward-looking statements contained in this MD&A. Additional impacts may arise that we are not aware of currently. The potential of such additional impacts intensifies the business and operating risks which we face, and these should be considered when reading the forward-looking statements contained in this MD&A. In addition, even if results and developments are consistent with the forward-looking statements contained in this MD&A, those results and developments may not be indicative of results or developments in subsequent periods. As a result, any or all of our forward-looking statements in this MD&A may prove to be inaccurate. No forward-looking statement is a guarantee of future results. Moreover, we operate in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment in which new risks often emerge. It is not possible for our management to predict all risks, nor can we assess the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements we may make.
You should read this MD&A and the documents that we reference herein completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. The forward-looking statements contained herein are made as of the date of this MD&A, and we do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements except as required by applicable laws.

Segments
Our reporting segments align with our sales channels: Direct-to-Consumer (“DTC”), Wholesale, and Other. We measure each reportable operating segment’s performance based on revenue and operating income. As at October 2, 2022, our DTC segment included sales to customers through our 56 national e-Commerce markets and 45 directly operated permanent retail stores across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Through our Wholesale segment, we sell to a mix of retailers and international distributors, who are partners that have partial or full exclusive territory rights to sell our products to a particular market through their own DTC channels or local wholesalers. The Other segment comprises sales and costs not directly allocated to the DTC or Wholesale segments, such as sales to employees and SG&A expenses.
Factors Affecting our Performance
We believe that our performance depends on many factors including those discussed below.
Growth in our DTC Channel. We plan to continue executing our global strategy through expansion in our DTC segment, though the scale of such expansion may be delayed due to current global conditions.
COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 continues to impact the global economy and public health officials have imposed restrictions and recommended precautions to mitigate the spread of the virus. While restrictions have been lifted to varying degrees in markets around the world, we continue to be impacted to some extent. Store operations have largely resumed across our global store network with the exception of the Asia Pacific region, which was negatively impacted by COVID-19 related restrictions resulting in store closures, reduced hours, and significantly lower retail traffic.
Global supply chain disruptions continue from the ongoing challenges related to COVID-19 and global political events, however these disruptions have not materially impacted our ability to fulfill demand and maintain sufficient inventory levels. We continue to anticipate and monitor escalating costs based both on freight constraints and required speed to stage inventory or deliver to consumers.
Future developments relating to COVID-19 are highly uncertain and out of our control. Prolonged disruptions due to the pandemic, including the emergence of the new COVID-19 variants and mutations, may negatively impact our operations and result in temporary closures of our retail stores and manufacturing facilities, as well as our wholesale partners, lower retail store traffic, and impacts on our supply chain.
New Products. We intend to continue investing in innovation and the development and introduction of new products across styles, uses, and climates. This includes Canada Goose footwear and Baffin branded footwear through Baffin’s own distinct sales channels.

Global political events and other disruptions. We are conscious of risks related to social, economic, and political instability, including geopolitical tensions, regulatory matters, market volatility, inflation and social unrest that are affecting consumer spending, interest rates, credit markets, and foreign exchange in certain countries and travel corridors.
We remain concerned about the conflict in Ukraine and impact on human life for those affected. We continue to suspend all wholesale and e-Commerce sales to Russia, which represented less than 1% of total annual revenue in fiscal 2022. We have been, and may in the future be, impacted by widespread protests and other disruptions. To the extent that such disruptions persist, we expect that operations and traffic at our retail stores may be impacted.
Inflationary pressures may persist in future fiscal periods. Such pressures may have an adverse effect on our ability to maintain current gross margin and SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenue. We continue to monitor the current macroeconomic conditions; however to date these pressures have not materially impacted our operations.
Seasonality. We experience seasonal fluctuations in our revenue and operating results and have historically realized a significant portion of our annual wholesale revenue during our second and third fiscal quarters, and our annual DTC revenue in our third and fourth fiscal quarters. We generated 82.4% and 86.8% of our annual wholesale revenue in the combined second and third fiscal quarters of fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021, respectively. Additionally, we generated 85.0% and 89.3% of our annual DTC revenue in the combined third and fourth fiscal quarters of fiscal 2022 and fiscal 2021, respectively. Because of seasonal fluctuations in revenue and fixed costs associated with our business, particularly the headcount growth and premises costs associated with our expanding DTC channel, we typically experience negative and substantially reduced net income and adjusted EBIT1 in the first and fourth quarters, respectively. As a result of our seasonality, changes that impact gross margin and adjusted EBIT1 among others can have a disproportionate impact on the quarterly results when they are recorded in our off-peak revenue periods.
1    Adjusted EBIT is a non-IFRS measure. See “Non-IFRS Financial Measures and Other Specified Financial Measures” for a description of these measures.
Guided by expected demand and wholesale orders, we typically manufacture on a linear basis throughout the fiscal year. Net working capital requirements typically increase as inventory builds. We finance these needs through a combination of cash on hand and borrowings on the Revolving Facility (as defined below), the Mainland China Facilities (as defined below), and the Japan Facility (as defined below). Historically, cash flows from operations have been highest in the third and fourth fiscal quarters of the fiscal year due to revenue from the DTC channel and the collection of receivables from wholesale revenue earlier in the year.
Foreign Exchange. We sell a significant portion of our products to customers outside of Canada, which exposes us to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. In fiscal years 2022, 2021, and 2020, we generated 72.5%, 67.9%, and 62.3%, respectively, of our revenue in currencies other than Canadian dollars. Accordingly, we are exposed to the effect of translating the results of our foreign operations into Canadian dollars. Most of our raw materials are sourced outside of Canada, primarily in U.S. dollars, and SG&A expenses are typically denominated in the currency of the country in which they are incurred. As a result, we are exposed to foreign currency exchange fluctuations on multiple currencies. As part of
Canada Goose Holdings Inc.
Page 7 of 54


our risk management program, we have entered into foreign exchange derivative contracts to manage certain of our exposures to exchange rate fluctuations for future foreign currency transactions, which is intended to reduce the variability of our operating costs and future cash flows denominated in local currencies.
We are further exposed to translation and transaction risks associated with foreign currency exchange fluctuations on foreign currencies denominated principal and interest amounts payable on the Mainland China Facilities, the Japan Facility, the Revolving Facility, and the Term Loan Facility (as defined below). The Company has entered into foreign exchange forward contracts to hedge a portion of the exposure to foreign currency exchange on the principal amount of the Term Loan Facility.
See “Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk - Foreign Exchange Risk” below.
