|BUSINESS SEGMENT INFORMATION||BUSINESS SEGMENT INFORMATION
The Company has two reportable segments:
•Wrangler — Wrangler® branded denim, apparel and accessories.
•Lee — Lee® branded denim, apparel and accessories.
The chief operating decision maker allocates resources and assesses performance based on a global brand view which determines the Company's operating segments. Operating segments are the basis for the Company's reportable segments.
In addition, we report an "Other" category in order to reconcile segment revenues and segment profit to the Company's operating results, but the Other category is not considered a reportable segment based on evaluation of aggregation criteria. Other includes sales of third-party branded merchandise at VF Outlet™ stores, sales and licensing of Rock & Republic® branded apparel, and sales of products manufactured for third parties. Sales of Wrangler® and Lee® branded products at VF Outlet™ stores are not included in Other and are reported in the respective segments discussed above. Prior to 2020, the Other category also included transactions with VF for pre-Separation activities, none of which continued in 2020. These transactions included sales of VF-branded products at VF Outlet™ stores, as well as sales to VF for products manufactured in our plants, use of our transportation fleet and fulfillment of a transition services agreement related to VF’s sale of its Nautica® brand business in mid-2018.
Accounting policies utilized for internal management reporting at the individual segments are consistent with those included in Note 1 to the Company's financial statements included in the Company's 2019 Annual Report on Form 10-K, except as noted below.
After the Separation, as a standalone public company, the Company has allocated costs for certain centralized functions and programs to the Lee® and Wrangler® segments based on appropriate metrics such as usage or production of net revenues. These centralized functions and programs include, but are not limited to, information technology, human resources, supply chain, insurance and related benefit costs associated with those functions.
Through the Separation date, the Company's statement of operations included costs for certain centralized functions and programs provided and administered by VF that were charged directly to VF's businesses, including the Company. These centralized functions and programs included, but were not limited to, information technology, human resources, accounting shared services, supply chain, insurance and related benefits associated with those functions. These historical allocations were included in the measurement of segment profit below. In addition, for purposes of preparing these financial statements on a carve-out basis, a portion of VF's total corporate expenses were allocated to the Company. These expense allocations included the cost of corporate functions and resources provided by or administered by VF including, but not limited to, executive management, finance, accounting, legal, human resources and related benefit costs associated with such functions. Allocations also included the cost of operating VF's corporate headquarters located in Greensboro, North Carolina. These additional allocations were reported as "corporate and other expenses" in the table below.
Corporate and other expenses, impairment charges, and interest income and expense are not controlled by segment management and therefore are excluded from the measurement of segment profit.
The following table presents financial information for the Company's reportable segments and income before income taxes:
