Highlight of Business Operations:For the three months ended September 30, 2010, we reported an operating profit of $5.4 million, as compared to $4.2 million for the comparable prior year period. We realized this $1.2 million year over year increase in operating profit despite a 4% decrease in total revenue. This improved profitability was driven primarily by a $2.4 million improvement in gross profit as a result of product mix and operational efficiencies. The gross profit improvement was partially offset by a $1.2 million increase in research and development (R&D) expenses in support of new product introductions.
Revenues for the Security division for the three months ended September 30, 2010, increased $3.8 million, or 8%, to $51.1 million, from $47.3 million for the comparable prior year period. The increase was attributable to: (i) a $2.8 million or 8% increase in equipment sales mainly driven by a $8.1 million increase in people screening equipment as a result of wider adoption of body scanners partially offset by a $4.6 million decrease in sales of cargo and vehicle inspection systems; and (ii) a $1.0 million or 8% increase in service revenue. .
Working Capital. The increase in working capital is primarily due to: (i) increases in inventory of $21.0 million, primarily in our Security division, to support anticipated growth in shipments, (ii) decreases in accrued payroll and employee benefits of $8.1 million, (iii) a decrease in current portion of long term debt of $4.1 million, (iv) a $3.6 million increase in cash and cash equivalents and (v) decreases in advances from customers of $2.5 million, primarily in our Security division. These decreases were partially offset by a $32.8 million reduction in accounts receivables, reflecting strong collections and the seasonality of sales.
Cash Used in Operating Activities. Cash flows from operating activities can fluctuate significantly from period to period, as net income, tax timing differences, and other items can significantly impact cash flows. Net cash provided by operations for the three months ended September 30, 2010, was $9.6 million, a $0.9 million reduction as compared to the $10.5 million generated in the comparable prior year period. The reduction was primarily due to the changes in working capital management in the current-year period versus the prior year period resulting in: (i) a $28.1 million increase in the change in inventory, reflecting the building of inventory primarily in our Security division to support growth as well as due to improvements realized in the prior fiscal year due to inventory reduction initiatives, (ii) a $8.3 million decrease in cash received as advances from customers and (iii) a $5.5 million decrease in the change in accrued payroll and related expenses. These unfavorable changes in cash flow were partially offset by the following favorable changes in working capital management: (i) $35.6 million increase in cash from accounts receivables reflecting the high level of sales in the forth quarter of fiscal 2010 and strong receivables collections and (ii) a $1.6 million reduction in the change in prepaid expenses and other current assets. In addition, the unfavorable changes in cash flow provided by operating activities was partially offset by an increase in our net income of $2.2 million, after giving consideration to various adjustments to net income for non-operating cash items, including depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, deferred taxes and provision for losses on accounts receivable, among others, for both periods.
Cash Used in Investing Activities.
