Highlight of Business Operations:Net Sales. Net sales increased by $162.5 million during 2011 to $1,249.5 million from $1,087.0 million in 2010, an increase of 14.9%, primarily attributable to the CleanSource and NCP acquisitions. Organic sales were $1,105.8 million in 2011 and $1,087.0 million in 2010, a 1.7% increase primarily due to modest economic improvements across our end markets and incremental sales resulting from the addition of sales force personnel, offset somewhat by three fewer shipping days during the fiscal year ended December 30, 2011 compared to the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. Average organic daily sales increased 2.9% resulting from a 3.4% increase in sales to our facilities maintenance customers and a 3.2% increase in sales to our professional contractor customers partially offset by a 0.2% decrease in sales to our specialty distributor customers. We believe our average organic daily sales increase is associated with modest economic improvements throughout our end-markets and incremental sales resulting from the addition of sales force personnel.
Net Sales. Net sales increased by $27.7 million during 2010 to $1,087.0 million from $1,059.3 million in 2009, an increase of 2.6%, primarily attributable to the CleanSource acquisition. Organic sales were $1,068.3 million in 2010 and $1,059.3 million in 2009, a 0.9% increase primarily due to five additional shipping days during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 compared to the fiscal year ended December 25, 2009. Average organic daily sales decreased 1.1% resulting from a 1.7% decrease in sales to our facilities maintenance customers and a 0.2% decrease in sales to our professional contractor customers partially offset by a 1.3% increase in sales to our specialty distributor customers. We believe our average organic daily sales decrease is associated with the well-publicized general economic downturn over the last few years.
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. SG&A expenses increased by $2.7 million, or 0.8%, to $318.8 million in 2010 from $316.1 million in 2009. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A decreased 50 basis points to 29.3% for 2010 compared to 29.8% for 2009. The decrease in SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales is primarily due to lower salary and wages expense, lower bad debt expense, lower occupancy related expenses and the SG&A expense impact from our CleanSource acquisition, offset in part by higher fringe benefit and variable compensation expenses.
Net cash provided by operating activities of $72.9 million during the year ended December 30, 2011 primarily consisted of net income of $37.7 million, adjustments for non-cash items of $39.7 million and cash used by working capital items of $4.6 million. Adjustments for non-cash items primarily consisted of $23.7 million in depreciation and amortization of property, equipment and intangible assets, $7.7 million in deferred income taxes, $5.6 million in share-based compensation, net of excess tax benefits, $2.5 million in provisions for doubtful accounts, and $1.4 million in amortization of debt issuance costs. These amounts were partially offset by $0.8 million of amortization of lease incentive obligations, and $0.5 million of other items. The cash used by working capital items primarily consisted of $13.4 million in increased inventory primarily as a result of increased demand and opportunistic year-end purchases, and $4.3 million from trade receivables resulting from increased sales in the current year as compared to the prior year. The use of cash was partially offset by $9.5 million from increased trade payables balances as a result of the timing of purchases and related payments, $2.5 million in decreased prepaid expenses and other current assets primarily from higher rebates receivable, and $0.6 million from changes in income taxes.
