Strengthened the leadership team with hiring of General Manager of Global Retail and President of Wholesale to help execute its global retail and wholesale turnaround strategies.

Operating Results - Second Quarter 2015
Net sales for the second quarter of 2015 decreased 17.2% to $134.4 million from $162.4 million for the same period in 2014. Excluding the year over year impact from foreign exchange and stores closed in 2014, net sales decreased 14% from the same period in 2014. The decline in comparable sales was attributable to the lack of new style introduction for the spring and summer selling season. Net sales also decreased approximately $3 million due to the store closures. In addition, the unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rate changes contributed to the sales decrease of approximately 4% or $6.2 million.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2015 decreased 25.3% to $61.5 million from $82.4 million for the same period in 2014. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2015 was 45.8% compared to 50.7% for the same period in 2014. The decrease was primarily related to lower retail sales coupled with the negative effects of foreign currency exchange rate changes and an increase in workers compensation and health benefit costs.
Operating expense for the second quarter of 2015 decreased 10.2% to $71.4 million from $79.6 million for the same period in 2014 due primarily to lower payroll and reduced shipping, rent, supplies and miscellaneous activities, all primarily as a result of our cost reduction efforts. Excluding the effects of the significant charges described below, operating expenses decreased 12.8% to $65.1 million from the same period in 2014.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2015 was $19.4 million or $0.11 per share, compared to net loss of $16.2 million, or $0.09 per share for the second quarter of 2014. Results for the second quarter of 2015 include $8.3 million, or $0.05 per share, related to significant charges.
