Operating Expenses. Operating expenses were $77.9 million in the Current Quarter, 10.6% higher than the Prior Quarter, but relatively unchanged as a percent of sales at 27.0% in the Current Quarter versus 27.1% for the Prior Quarter. The flat expense rate reflects the benefit of improved operating leverage and cost containment efforts offset by the negative impact of higher commission expense resulting from the Company's margin based commission programs.
