Sales productivity in both the Large Account and Public Sector segments increased by 16% in the first quarter of 2011 compared to the prior year period. This growth was due to year-over-year increases in sales as sales representative headcount in each segment was largely level compared to the prior year quarter. Productivity for the SMB segment was unchanged year over year, despite its revenue increase, due to the addition of 42 sales representatives compared to the prior year quarter. On a consolidated basis, the total number of sales representatives was 634 at March 31, 2011, compared to 583 at March 31, 2010, and 615 at December 31, 2010.Total selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter increased year over year by $6.8 million, or 15%, and increased as a percentage of net sales to 11.1% for the first quarter of 2011 from 10.9% for the first quarter of 2010. The year-over-year dollar increase was attributable to increased variable compensation associated with increased gross profits, investments in sales and support personnel, and acquisition related costs. SG&A expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2011 included $0.5 million in costs related to the ValCom acquisition.
