Outdoor apparel specialist Canada Goose is looking to take the company public later this year, with dual listings planned for both New York and Canada.

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission last week, the company said it has applied for listing of its subordinate voting shares on the New York Stock Exchange in the US and on the Toronto Stock Exchange in Canada under the symbol 'GOOS'.

Following the offering, Canada Goose says it will have two classes of shares: multiple voting shares; and subordinate voting shares. The latter will have one vote per share and the multiple ten votes per share. 

The subordinate voting shares are not convertible into any other class of shares, while the multiple voting shares are convertible into subordinate voting shares on a one-for-one basis at the option of the holder and under certain conditions.

In its last fiscal year, ended 31 March 2016, the company achieved a profit of CAD26.5m (US$20.1m) from earnings of CAD14.4m a year earlier. Sales were up 33.1% to CAD290.8m, while gross profit stood at 49.9% for the period.
