During the three months ended March 27, 2010, we generated $6.8 million of funds through operating activities and $210 thousand from checks issued in excess of cash. These funds were used primarily to invest $91 thousand in capital assets and reduce debt by $6.8 million.
Working capital was reduced $6.0 million in the first three months of 2010, principally as a result of lower levels of receivables and an increase in accounts payables and accrued expenses. Trade accounts receivable increased $2.2 million primarily due to an increase in sales and seasonably low accounts receivable at the end of 2009, while income tax receivables decreased $6.1 million primarily due to tax refunds of $6.7 million received in the first quarter of 2010. Accounts payable and accrued expenses increased $2.9 million principally to support a higher level of sales and production. Inventory turns have improved due to higher levels of sales while inventory dollars have remained relatively the same.
Capital expenditures for the three months ended March 27, 2010 were $91 thousand, while depreciation and amortization was $3.0 million. We expect capital expenditures to be approximately $3.0 million for fiscal 2010, while depreciation and amortization is expected to be approximately $11.7 million. Planned capital expenditures in 2010 will be primarily for enhancements to existing equipment and facilities.
