Canada Goose, a Toronto-based company known for outerwear that can stand up to Arctic winters, said Tuesday that it has agreed to sell a majority stake in the company to Bain Capital, a global private investment firm with offices in Boston.
Terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
Dani Reiss will remain president and chief executive and continue to own a “significant minority stake” in Canada Goose, the company said in a press release.
