- Winter jacket maker Canada Goose sold off a majority of its share to Bain Capital for an undisclosed amount.
- The development follows a move by higher-end rival Moncler to list shares on the Milan stock exchange.
- What to watch: Bain isn't the only P-E firm taking an interest in specialty apparel retail as a number of other companies have been snapped up. The prospect of building global lifestyle companies off of strong brands is starting to draw even more interest. The trend could set up well for some beat-up names such as Lands' End (SHLD), L.L. Bean, Eddie Bauer, and Coldwater Creek (CWTR).
