Net international sales increased $7.1 million, or 13.1%, to $61.2 million. Changes in foreign currency exchange rates in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 as compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013 negatively impacted consolidated net sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 by $2.9 million. On a constant currency basis, consolidated net sales increased 11.4% in the second quarter.
 
Operating income in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased $14.6 million, or 44.6%, to $47.3 million, compared to $32.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
 
Second quarter fiscal 2014 operating income includes expenses totaling $11.5 million related to the following: the amortization of acquired tradenames; the corporate office consolidation; the exit of retail operations in Japan; and the Hogansville, Georgia distribution center closure. Second quarter fiscal 2013 operating income included expenses totaling $12.1 million related to the following: the corporate office consolidation; the amortization of acquired tradenames; and the revaluation of the Bonnie Togs contingent consideration.
 
Excluding the expenses noted above in both periods, adjusted operating income in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased $14.0 million, or 31.1%, to $58.8 million, compared to $44.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
