|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
ompany has aggregated its operating segments into four reportable geographic segments: (1) the United States, (2) Latin America and Asia Pacific ("LAAP"), (3) Europe, Middle East and Africa ("EMEA"), and (4) Canada, which are reflective of the Company's internal organization, management and oversight structure. Each geographic segment operates predominantly in one industry: the design, development, marketing, and distribution of outdoor and active lifestyle apparel, footwear, accessories, and equipment. Intersegment net sales and intersegment profits, which are recorded at a negotiated mark-up and eliminated in consolidation, are not material. Unallocated corporate expenses consist of expenses incurred by centrally-managed departments, including global information systems, finance, human resources and legal, executive compensation, unallocated benefit program expense, and other miscellaneous costs.
The geographic distribution of the Company's Net sales and Income from operations in the Consolidated Statements of Operations, as well as depreciation and amortization expense, are summarized in the following tables for the years ended December 31, 2018, 2017 and 2016 as well as Accounts receivable, net, Inventories and Property, plant and equipment, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets at December 31, 2018 and 2017.
During the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company revised its methodology for allocating certain expenses to its reportable segments to better reflect how management reviews financial information and makes operating decisions. As a result, prior year balances for segment income from operations, and depreciation and amortization expenses for each reportable segment, and unallocated corporate expenses in the table above have been reclassified to conform with the current year's presentation.
In addition, during the fourth quarter of 2018, the Company determined it had incorrectly allocated certain amounts of operating income to its United States segment, resulting in the overstatement of both total segment income from operations and unallocated corporate expenses by approximately $13,300,000 and $9,300,000 for the years ended 2017 and 2016, respectively. The Company assessed the significance of the misclassifications and concluded that they were not material to any prior periods. As a result, the United States and total segment income from operations as well as unallocated corporate expenses for 2017 and 2016 in the table above have been revised from amounts previously reported to correct the misclassifications. These corrections had no effect on the Company's Consolidated Statements of Operations.
The entire disclosure for reporting segments including data and tables. Reportable segments include those that meet any of the following quantitative thresholds a) it's reported revenue, including sales to external customers and intersegment sales or transfers is 10 percent or more of the combined revenue, internal and external, of all operating segments b) the absolute amount of its reported profit or loss is 10 percent or more of the greater, in absolute amount of 1) the combined reported profit of all operating segments that did not report a loss or 2) the combined reported loss of all operating segments that did report a loss c) its assets are 10 percent or more of the combined assets of all operating segments.
