For the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company reported revenue of $56.2 million, a 24.4% increase compared to $45.2 million for the comparable period in fiscal 2015; and an 8.0% increase compared sequentially to revenue of $52.0 million for the second fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2015. Year-over-year quarterly revenue reflects an increase of 33.8% in the Americas and a decrease in the Asia/Pacific & Europe region of 0.9%.

Commissions and incentives expense for the third fiscal quarter of 2016 was $28.2 million, or 50.2% of revenue, compared to $21.6 million, or 47.9% of revenue, for the same period last year. Selling, general and administrative expense (SG&A) for the third fiscal quarter of 2016 was $14.6 million, or 26.1% of revenue, compared to $14.5 million, or 32.1% of revenue, in the same period last year.

Operating income for the third fiscal quarter of 2016 was $3.6 million, compared to $1.5 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA was $5.1 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2016, compared to $4.5 million for the second fiscal quarter of 2016 and $3.3 million for the prior year period.

Net income for the third fiscal quarter of 2016 was $1.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, calculated on 14.1 million fully diluted shares. This compares to net income for the third fiscal quarter of 2015 of $0.6 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, calculated on 14.0 million fully diluted shares. Adjusted for a write-off of deferred debt transaction costs of $1.0 million, net of tax, associated with refinancing the Company’s term loan and $0.1 million, net of tax, for executive team transition expenses, adjusted Non-GAAP net income was $2.0 million for the third fiscal quarter of 2016, or $0.14 per diluted share; compared to $1.1 million, or $0.08 per diluted share for the comparable period last year.

Fiscal 2016 First Nine Months Results
For the nine months ended March 31, 2016, the Company reported net revenue of $153.5 million, an increase of 5.8% compared to $145.0 million in the prior year period. Revenue in the Americas increased 13.8%, while revenue in Asia/Pacific & Europe decreased 14.6% due predominantly to lower sales in Japan that occurred primarily during the first quarter of fiscal 2016. Revenue for the nine months of fiscal 2016 was negatively impacted $2.7 million, or 1.9%, by foreign currency fluctuation.

Operating income for the first nine months of fiscal 2016 was $9.3 million, compared to $12.3 million for the prior year period. Operating income for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 includes $1.7 million of the previously announced executive transition and one-time expenses. Adjusted EBITDA was $14.1 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2016, compared to $14.3 million for the prior year period. Operating income and Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 includes the benefit of approximately $2.0 million from proceeds recovered and related to the Company's December 2012 product recall, partially offset by severance and executive team transition costs of $0.7 million.

Net income for the first nine months of fiscal 2016 was $3.7 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $6.8 million, or $0.47 per diluted share for the prior year period. On a tax adjusted basis, adjusting for the previously mentioned executive transition and one-time charges during the first nine months of 2016 of $1.1 million and the $1.0 write-off of deferred debt transactions costs for the first nine months of fiscal 2016, adjusted Non-GAAP net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 was $5.7 million or $0.41 per diluted share. On a tax adjusted basis, and adjusting for the one-time insurance benefit for the nine months of fiscal 2015 of $1.4 million partially offset by $0.5 million of severance and executive transition costs, adjusted Non-GAAP net income for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 was $5.9 million or $0.41 per diluted share.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We define Non-GAAP EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, other income, net, and certain other adjustments. Non-GAAP EBITDA and Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We define Non-GAAP Net Income and Earnings Per Share as GAAP net income less certain tax adjusted non-recurring one-time expenses incurred during the period.

We are presenting Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share because management believes that they provide additional ways to view our operations when considered with both our GAAP results and the reconciliation to net income, which we believe provides a more complete understanding of our business than could be obtained absent this disclosure. Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share are presented solely as supplemental disclosure because: (i) we believe these measures are a useful tool for investors to assess the operating performance of the business without the effect of these items; (ii) we believe that investors will find this data useful in assessing shareholder value; and (iii) we use Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share internally as a benchmark to evaluate our operating performance or compare our performance to that of our competitors. The use of Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share has limitations and you should not consider these measures in isolation from or as an alternative to the relevant GAAP measure of net income prepared in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.

The tables set forth below present Non-GAAP EBITDA, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share which are non-GAAP financial measures to Net Income and Earnings Per Share, our most directly comparable financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP.
