Feb 14 (Reuters) - Apax Partners-owned shoemaker Cole Haan Inc, formerly a part of Nike Inc NKE.N, on Friday made its U.S. listing application public, after confidentially filing it with the regulators in October.

The IPO is part of a broader wave of U.S. retail listings in 2020 by companies including Casper Sleep CSPR.N, Madewell, and MyTheresa.

Cole Haan posted revenue of $686.6 million for the year ended June 1, 2019, up 14.1% from a year earlier, and reported a 43.4% rise in profit to $33.1 million.

The company said it would not receive any proceeds from the offering as all the shares to be sold will come from stockholders.

Cole Haan intends to list its shares on the Nasdaq under the symbol "CLHN".

BofA Securities, Morgan Stanley, J.P.Morgan and Goldman Sachs are the lead underwriters to the IPO.
