"We are pleased to report solid quarterly results as compared to a strong Q3 2015," said Simon F. Nynens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We see opportunities for growth in the remainder of this year. We bought back a total of approximately 86,000 shares in the third quarter of 2016 and we still have approximately 278,000 shares of Common Stock available for future repurchase. We will continue to buy back shares according to our 10-b5 Stock Repurchase Plan."
Net sales for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 increased 2% or $1.9 million to $99.6 million compared to $97.7 million for the same period in 2015. Total sales for the third quarter of 2016 for our Lifeboat Distribution segment were $91.1 million compared to $86.1 million in the third quarter of 2015, representing an increase of $5.0 million or 6%. Total sales for the third quarter of 2016 for our TechXtend segment were $8.5 million compared to $11.6 million in the third quarter of 2015, representing a decrease of $3.1 million or 27%.
The 6% increase in net sales for the Lifeboat Distribution segment resulted mainly from the addition of several key product lines and our ongoing strategy of strengthening our account penetration. This was partially offset by lower sales to certain resellers, resulting from changes in product mix upon annual contract renewals. The 27% decrease in net sales in the TechXtend segment was primarily due variability in larger software sales transactions, including extended payment terms sales, when compared to the third quarter of the prior year.
Cash and long term receivables amounted to $27.8 million, representing 73% of equity as of September 30, 2016. Working capital amounted to $28.8 million, representing 76% of equity as of September 30, 2016.
Gross Profit for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 was $6.4 million, a 7% decrease compared to $6.9 million for the third quarter of 2015. Gross profit for our Lifeboat segment in the third quarter of 2016 was $5.4 million compared to $5.5 million for the third quarter of 2015, representing a 1% decrease. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment in the third quarter of 2016 was $0.9 million compared to $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2015, representing a 33% decrease.
Gross profit margin (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 was 6.4% compared to 7.0% for the third quarter of 2015. Gross profit margin for our Lifeboat Distribution segment for the third quarter of 2016 was 6.0% compared to 6.4% for the third quarter of 2015. The decrease in gross profit margin for the Lifeboat Distribution segment was largely the result of a program change by one of our main vendors, which caused gross margins to decline by 1.8% for that line. Gross profit margin for our TechXtend segment for the third quarter of 2016 was 11.0% compared to 12.0% for the third quarter of 2015. The decrease in gross profit margin for the TechXtend segment was primarily caused by variability in gross profit margins on larger sales transactions, when compared to those in the same quarter last year.
Total selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the third quarter of 2016 were $4.4 million compared to $4.6 million for the third quarter of 2015, representing a decrease of $0.3 million or 6%. This decrease was primarily the result of lower bonus expense, partially offset by increased stock compensation and occupancy costs in 2016, compared to 2015. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses for the third quarter of 2016 were 4.4% compared to 4.7% for the third quarter of 2015.
For the three months ended September 30, 2016, the Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $704,000 or 33.8% of income, compared to $805,000 or 34.1% of income for the same period in 2015.
Net income and diluted earnings per share for the third quarter of 2016 were $1.4 million and $0.31, respectively, compared to $1.6 million and $0.33, respectively, for the third quarter of 2015.
On October 25, 2016, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $.17 per share of common stock payable November 18, 2016 to shareholders of record on November 8, 2016.
