North America net sales decreased 39.1% to $39.0 million from $64.1 million in the same quarter of the prior year. The Company experienced lower sell-in at a key customer and a decline in sales to several of its specialty retailers. Consistent with its strategy, the Company purposefully scaled back its sales to the off-price channel which were down approximately 52% compared with the second quarter of 2012. In addition, the second quarter of 2012 included increased sales from a significant packaging change. International net sales increased 40.6% to $11.8 million from $8.4 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Included in the North America segment in second quarter 2013 and second quarter 2012 are net sales of $1.8 million and $7.8 million, respectively, of products that were sold from the United States to customers with a "ship to" location outside of the United States. Including these sales in the international segment, international net sales decreased 15.9%, and North America net sales decreased 33.9%, compared to the same quarter in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted international net sales is primarily due to a $2.4 million negative impact of winding down the Company's relationship with its former Canadian distributor in anticipation of going to a direct model in that country.
