At the same time, we continue to generate cash and strengthen our balance sheet. In particular, our new credit facility maintains our low cost of capital, while providing capacity to complement our organic growth with incremental EBITDA through acquisitions." He further added, "We are quite excited about the progress we have made with our holistic solutions approach. The recent additions of plastic injection molding, tooling, and magnesium injection molding have shown signs of compelling cross-selling opportunities. Our 3D printing and imaging business segment, 3D Material Technologies ("3DMT"), has also been of keen interest to our existing and new customer base. We remain committed to being a holistic solution provider, helping our customers improve speed-to-market, and further developing our online instant quoting service."

Fiscal Year Third Quarter Operating Results

For the three months ended March 30, 2014, the Company's total sales were $20.9 million, an increase of $2.7 million, or 14.7%, from $18.2 million in the comparable third quarter prior fiscal year period. Record sales results during the quarter were driven by continued robust demand across the high growth markets we serve, including the medical/dental, aerospace, automotive, and defense industries.

Quarterly results demonstrated continued gross profit margin improvement, increasing to 30.7%, from 26.1%, during the comparable prior year period. The increase is attributed to a combination of top line sales growth, improved operational efficiencies, and the financial benefits realized from intensive integration and cost reduction efforts company-wide.

Adjusted Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("Adjusted EBITDA") for the third quarter fiscal 2014 was a record $4.3 million. Adjusted EPS (pre-stock dividend) of $0.30 for the third quarter reflected an increase of 128.5% from $0.13 the prior year quarter. After giving effect to the 1.5:1 stock dividend paid on May 1, 2014, Adjusted EPS was $0.12.
