|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
|Segment Information||SEGMENT INFORMATION
The Company sells products to a member network that operates in a seamless manner from market to market, except for the Chinese market where it sells to consumers through an e-commerce retail platform. Outside of the China e-commerce retail platform, the Company believes that all of its other operating segments have similar economic characteristics, except for its operations located within the Commonwealth of Independent States (“CIS”). In making this determination, the Company believes that its operating segments are similar in the nature of the products sold, the product acquisition process, the types of customers products are sold to, the methods used to distribute the products, and the nature of the regulatory environment. The Company’s engagement of a third-party service provider in the CIS market results in a different economic structure than its other markets.
However, there is no separate segment manager who is held accountable by the Company’s chief operating decision-makers, or anyone else, for operations, operating results and planning for the either Chinese or the CIS markets on a stand-alone basis, and neither market is material for the two years presented. As such, the Company believes that all operating segments should be aggregated into a single reportable segment for disclosure purposes.
The Company’s net sales by geographic area are as follows (in thousands):
1 The Company discontinued its Ukraine operations during the second quarter of 2015.
The Company’s net sales by product and service are as follows (in thousands):
