For the year, net sales in the North American Region decreased by 17 percent as reported and in constant currency, versus the prior year; gross sales in the North American Region also decreased by 17 percent as reported and in constant currency, primarily driven by lower sales as a result of tighter retailer inventory management, certain underperforming brands, and the Toys “R” Us bankruptcy filing.

For the year, net cash flows used for operating activities were approximately $28 million, compared to net cash flows in the prior year from operating activities of approximately $595 million, primarily driven by the net loss for the year, excluding the impact of the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, and other non-cash charges. Cash flows used for investing activities were approximately $236 million in 2017, a decrease of approximately $76 million versus the prior year, primarily driven by higher proceeds from foreign currency forward exchange contracts and 2016 payments related to the acquisitions of Fuhu and Sproutling, partially offset by higher capital spending. Cash flows provided by financing activities and other were approximately $473 million in 2017, compared to cash flows used for financing activities and other of approximately $306 million for the prior year, primarily driven by proceeds from the $1.0 billion issuance of senior notes in December 2017 and lower dividend payments, offset by higher net repayments of short-term borrowings.
