Financial Results for Second Quarter 2013 versus Second Quarter 2012
Net sales for the second quarter of 2013 decreased $12.1 million, or 7.7%, to $145.4 million. Wholesale segment net sales for the second quarter of 2013 decreased $11.6 million, or 8.2%, to $129.8 million. Retail segment net sales decreased $0.5 million, or 3.1%, to $15.6 million.
The Company's net sales performance by channel of distribution is highlighted in Exhibit 1 to this press release.
Department Stores and National Chain Stores
Net sales for the department stores and national chain stores channel decreased $7.9 million, or 11.2%, to $62.5 million for the second quarter of 2013 from softness in the bra and shapewear categories resulting from lower replenishment orders, increased shapewear competition at a chain customer as well as a decrease resulting from the initial shipments for the Jennifer Lopez brand which occurred in 2012. Somewhat offsetting this decline was improved replenishment at a mid-tier department store customer.
Mass merchant channel net sales decreased $0.5 million, or 1.0%, to $47.7 million for the second quarter of 2013 resulting from lower strapless bra replenishment orders and lower replenishment orders on new introductions. This decrease was predominately offset by increased sales in the bra and shapewear categories at our other mass customers, including shapewear rebranding initiatives at a warehouse club customer.
Net sales in the other channel decreased $3.2 million, or 14.0%, to $19.6 million for the second quarter of 2013 primarily from sales declines to a specialty retailer, decreased program sales to off-price retailers and lower liquidation sales.
Total international net sales, which are included in the wholesale segment, increased $0.5 million, or 3.4%, to $15.3 million with growth in significant markets, most notably Canada, Germany and Mexico. Partially offsetting this increase were sales decreases in other markets, such as the United Kingdom and Russia.
