Our Chief Operating Decision Maker and management evaluate performance and allocate resources based on profit or loss from operations before interest, income taxes and special charges ("segment operating earnings"). Our segment operating earnings may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. The accounting policies of our reportable segments are the same as those described in Note 2 in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2020, filed with the SEC. Intercompany transfers between operating segments are transacted at cost and have been eliminated within the segment amounts shown in the following table (in thousands).
(1) In fiscal 2021, the Delta Group operating earnings included $1.3 million of expense, reported within "Other loss (income), net", related to two catastrophic hurricanes that disrupted operations during the December 2020 quarter. For the three-months and nine-months ended June 2020, the Delta Group operating income (loss) included $23.1 million and $25.0 million, respectively, of expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the June 2020 quarter, these costs primarily related to the curtailment of manufacturing operations ($9.8 million), incremental costs to right size production to new forecasted demand ($2.6 million), increased accounts receivable and inventory reserves related to the heightened risks in the market as the U.S. continues its recovery ($6.6 million), and other expenses ($4.1 million). These costs are included within net sales ($0.5 million), cost of goods sold ($12.1 million), SG&A expenses ($2.4 million), and other loss (income), net ($8.1 million). The first nine months of fiscal 2020 includes an additional $1.9 million of costs related to the curtailment of manufacturing operations in cost of goods sold.
