VIRCO MFG. CORPORATION
Notes to unaudited Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
October 31, 2014
Note 1. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the nine months ended October 31, 2014, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2015. The balance sheet at January 31, 2014, has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date, but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for complete financial statements. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2014 (“Form 10-K”). Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior year cash flow statement to conform to the current year presentation. Reclassifications did not have a material impact to the cash flow statement. All references to the “Company” refer to Virco Mfg. Corporation and its subsidiaries.
Note 2. Correction of Immaterial Errors
Subsequent to the year ended January 31, 2014, the Company identified certain errors in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) for the quarters ended April 30, July 31 and October 31, 2013. The Company previously recorded its quarterly net periodic pension cost as an increase to accrued pension expenses, when a portion of the net periodic pension cost attributed to the recognized net actuarial loss or (gain) should have been recorded as a decrease in the Company’s accumulated other comprehensive loss. These errors have no impact on the amounts previously reported in the Company’s statements of operations or statements of cash flows. Further, these errors have no impact on its consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended January 31, 2014.
Management has evaluated the materiality of these errors quantitatively and qualitatively and has concluded that the corrections of these errors are immaterial to the condensed consolidated balance sheets, consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss), and the financial statements as a whole. Accordingly, the Company has corrected the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet and consolidated statement of comprehensive income (loss) for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2013. The effect of recording immaterial corrections in the condensed consolidated balance sheets and consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss) for the quarter ended October 31, 2013 is as follows:

Note 3. Seasonality
The market for educational furniture is marked by extreme seasonality, with approximately 50% of the Company’s total sales typically occurring from June to August each year, which is the Company’s peak season. Hence, the Company typically builds and carries significant amounts of inventory during and in anticipation of this peak summer season to facilitate the rapid delivery requirements of customers in the educational market. This requires a large up-front investment in inventory, labor, storage and related costs as inventory is built in anticipation of peak sales during the summer months. As the capital required for this build-up generally exceeds cash available from operations, the Company has historically relied on third-party bank

10


financing to meet cash flow requirements during the build-up period immediately preceding the peak season. In addition, the Company typically is faced with a large balance of accounts receivable during the peak season. This occurs for two primary reasons. First, accounts receivable balances typically increase during the peak season as shipments of products increase. Second, many customers during this period are government institutions, which tend to pay accounts receivable more slowly than commercial customers.
The Company’s working capital requirements during and in anticipation of the peak summer season require management to make estimates and judgments that affect assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates, including those related to market demand, labor costs, and stocking inventory.

Note 4. New Accounting Standards

In July 2013, the FASB issued accounting guidance on the financial statement presentation of an unrecognized tax benefit when a net operating loss carryforward, or similar tax loss, or a tax carryforward exists. The Company adopted the guidance effective February 1, 2014, the beginning of the Company's 2014 fiscal year. The guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's financial statements.

In April 2014, the FASB issued accounting guidance which changes the criteria for determining which disposals can be presented as discontinued operations and modifies related disclosure requirements. The guidance will be effective for fiscal years beginning on or after January 31, 2015 and interim periods within those annual periods with early adoption allowed. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a material impact on its financial statements.

In May 2014, the FASB issued a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard which will supersede previous existing revenue recognition guidance. The standard creates a five-step model for revenue recognition that requires companies to exercise judgment when considering contract terms and relevant facts and circumstances. The five-step model includes (1) identifying the contract, (2) identifying the separate performance obligations in the contract, (3) determining the transaction price, (4) allocating the transaction price to the separate performance obligations and (5) recognizing revenue when each performance obligation has been satisfied. The standard also requires expanded disclosures surrounding revenue recognition. The standard is effective for fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and allows for either full retrospective or modified retrospective adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on its consolidated financial statements.

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements-Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40), Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern. This standard sets forth management’s responsibility to evaluate, each reporting period, whether there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern, and if so, to provide related footnote disclosures. The standard is effective for annual and interim reporting periods ending after December 15, 2016. We are currently evaluating this new standard and expect it to have no impact on our financial position and results of operations.

Note 5. Inventories
Inventories primarily consist of raw materials, work in progress, and finished goods of manufactured products. In addition, the Company maintains an inventory of finished goods purchased for resale. Inventories are stated at lower of cost or market and consist of materials, labor, and overhead. The Company determines the cost of inventory by the first-in, first-out method. The value of inventory includes any related production overhead costs incurred in bringing the inventory to its present location and condition. The Company records the cost of excess capacity as a period expense, not as a component of capitalized inventory valuation.
Management continually monitors production costs, material costs and inventory levels to determine that interim inventories are fairly stated.

On December 22, 2011 (the Closing Date), the Company entered into a Revolving Credit and Security Agreement (the Credit Agreement) with PNC Bank, National Association, as administrative agent and lender (PNC). On June 15, 2012, the Company entered into Amendment No. 1 (Amendment No. 1) to the Credit Agreement which, among other things, increased the borrowing availability thereunder by $3,000,000 from $6,000,000 to $9,000,000 for the period from May 1 through July 14 of each year. On July 27, 2012, the Company entered into Amendment No. 2 (Amendment No. 2) to the Credit Agreement which, among other things, reduced the minimum EBITDA financial covenant contained therein for the five consecutive months ending June 2012 from $1,600,000 to $300,000. On September 12, 2012, the Company entered into Amendment No. 3 (Amendment No. 3) to the Credit Agreement which, among other things, modified the minimum EBITDA covenant for the balance of the fiscal year. On December 6, 2012, the Company entered into Amendment No. 4 (Amendment No. 4) to the Credit Agreement which, among other things, waived the violation of the minimum EBITDA and minimum tangible net worth covenants at October 31, 2012 and eliminated the minimum EBITDA covenant at November 30, 2012. On March 1, 2013, the Company entered into Amendment No. 5 (Amendment No. 5) to the Credit Agreement, which among other things modified the minimum tangible net worth covenant for the periods from January 31, 2013 to January 31, 2014, modified the minimum EBIDTA covenant for certain periods to January 31, 2014 and waived the violation of the minimum EBITDA covenant for the eleven consecutive fiscal month period ending December 31, 2012. On January 9, 2014, the Company entered into Amendment No. 6 (Amendment No. 6) to the Credit Agreement, which, among other things, amended the definition of “Peak Season” and increased the peak season borrowing capacity. On April 15, 2014, the Company entered into Amendment No. 7 (Amendment No. 7) to the Credit Agreement, which, among other things, extended the maturity date of the Credit Agreement for three years until December 22, 2017, reduced the maximum availability under the Credit Agreement by 10,000,000 from $60,000,000 to $50,000,000, waived the violation of the minimum EBITDA covenant at January 31, 2014, waived the violation of the fixed charge coverage ratio covenant at January 31, 2014, included levels for the minimum tangible net worth financial covenant and a minimum EBITDA financial covenant for fiscal year 2014 and the minimum fixed charge coverage ratio until the maturity date of the Credit Agreement. On August 18, 2014, the Company entered into Amendment No. 8 (Amendment No. 8) to the Credit Agreement which, among other things, extended the draw period under the temporary equipment line.
The Credit Agreement, as amended, provides the Company with a secured revolving line of credit (the Revolving Credit Facility) of up to $50,000,000, with seasonal adjustments to the credit limit and subject to borrowing base limitations, and includes a sub-limit of up to $3,000,000 for issuances of letters of credit. The Revolving Credit Facility is an asset-based line of credit that is subject to a borrowing base limitation and generally provides for advances of up to 85% of eligible accounts receivable, plus a percentage equal to the lesser of 60% of the value of eligible inventory or 85% of the liquidation value of eligible inventory, plus an amount ranging from $8,000,000 to $14,000,000 from January 1 through July 31 of each year, minus undrawn amounts of letters of credit and reserves. The Revolving Credit Facility is secured by substantially all of the Company's personal property and certain of the Company's real property. The principal amount outstanding under the Credit Agreement and any accrued and unpaid interest is due no later than December 22, 2017, and the Revolving Credit Facility is subject to certain prepayment penalties upon earlier termination of the Revolving Credit Facility. Prior to the maturity date, principal amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement may be repaid and reborrowed at the option of the Company without premium or penalty, subject to borrowing base limitations, seasonal adjustments and certain other conditions.
The Revolving Credit Facility bears interest, at the Company's option, at either the Alternate Base Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement) or the Eurodollar Currency Rate (as defined in the Credit Agreement), in each case plus an applicable margin. The applicable margin for Alternate Base Rate loans is a percentage within a range of 0.75% to 1.75%, and the applicable margin for Eurodollar Currency Rate loans is a percentage within a range of 1.75% to 2.75%, in each case based on the EBITDA of the Company at the end of each fiscal quarter, and may be increased at PNC's option by 2.0% during the continuance of an event of default. Accrued interest with respect to principal amounts outstanding under the Credit Agreement is payable in arrears on a monthly basis for Alternative Base Rate loans, and at the end of the applicable interest period but at most every three months for Eurodollar Currency Rate loans.
The Credit Agreement contains a covenant that forbids the Company from issuing dividends or making payments with respect to the Company's capital stock, and contains numerous other covenants that limit under certain circumstances the ability of the

12


Company and their subsidiaries to, among other things, merge with or acquire other entities, incur new liens, incur additional indebtedness, repurchase stock, sell assets outside of the ordinary course of business, enter into transactions with affiliates, or substantially change the general nature of the business of the Company, taken as a whole. The Credit Agreement also requires the Company to maintain the following financial maintenance covenants: (1) a minimum tangible net worth amount, (2) a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, and (3) a minimum EBITDA amount, in each case as of the end of the relevant monthly, quarterly or annual measurement period. As of October 31, 2014 the Credit Agreement required the Company to maintain: (1) a minimum tangible net worth of at least $30,579,000 for the fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2014, (2) a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio of at least 1.00 to 1.00 for the four consecutive fiscal quarters ending January 31, 2015, and (3) a minimum EBITDA amount of $9,818,000 for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 and $5,512,000 for the twelve consecutive fiscal months ending January 31, 2015.
In addition, the Credit Agreement contains a clean down provision that requires the Company to reduce borrowings under the line to less than $6,000,000 for a period of 60 consecutive days each fiscal year. The Company believes that normal operating cash flow will allow it to meet the clean down requirement with no adverse impact on the Company's liquidity. The Company was in compliance with its covenants at October 31, 2014.
Events of default (subject to certain cure periods and other limitations) under the Credit Agreement include, but are not limited to, (i) non-payment of principal, interest or other amounts due under the Credit Agreement, (ii) the violation of terms, covenants, representations or warranties in the Credit Agreement or related loan documents, (iii) any event of default under agreements governing certain indebtedness of the Company and certain defaults by the Company under other agreements that would materially adversely affect the Company, (iv) certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency or liquidation involving the Company, (v) judgments or judicial actions against the Company in excess of $250,000, subject to certain conditions, (vi) the failure of the Company to comply with Pension Benefit Plans (as defined in the Credit Agreement), (vii) the invalidity of loan documents pertaining to the Credit Agreement, (viii) a change of control of the Company and (ix) the interruption of operations of any of the Company' manufacturing facilities for five consecutive days during the peak season or fifteen consecutive days during any other time, subject to certain conditions.
Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, substantially all of the Company' accounts receivable are automatically and promptly swept to repay amounts outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility upon receipt by the Company. Due to this automatic liquidating nature of the Revolving Credit Facility, if the Company breach any covenant, violate any representation or warranty or suffer a deterioration in their ability to borrow pursuant to the borrowing base calculation, the Company may not have access to cash liquidity unless provided by PNC at its discretion. In addition, certain of the covenants and representations and warranties set forth in the Credit Agreement contain limited or no materiality thresholds, and many of the representations and warranties must be true and correct in all material respects upon each borrowing, which the Company expect to occur on an ongoing basis. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to comply with all such covenants and be able to continue to make such representations and warranties on an ongoing basis.
The Company's line of credit with PNC is structured to provide seasonal credit availability during the Company's peak summer season. The Company believes that the Revolving Credit Facility will provide sufficient liquidity to meet its capital requirements in the next 12 months. Approximately $6,285,000 was available for borrowing as of October 31, 2014.
The descriptions set forth herein of the Credit Agreement, Amendment No. 1, Amendment No. 2, Amendment No. 3, Amendment No. 4, Amendment No. 5, Amendment No. 6, Amendment No. 7 and Amendment No. 8 are qualified in their entirety by the terms of such agreements, each of which has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Management believes that the carrying value of debt approximated fair value at October 31, 2014 and 2013, as all of the long-term debt bears interest at variable rates based on prevailing market conditions.

Note 7. Income Taxes
The Company recognizes deferred income taxes under the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with the provisions of ASC No. 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” Deferred income taxes are recognized for differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities at enacted statutory tax rates in effect for the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. The effect on deferred taxes of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, the Company considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income or reversal of deferred tax liabilities during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. Based on this consideration, the Company determined the realization of a majority of the net deferred tax assets do not meet the more

13


likely than not criteria and a valuation allowance was recorded against the majority of the net deferred tax assets at October 31, 2014.
Ordinarily, interim tax provisions are calculated using the estimated effective tax rate (“ETR”) expected to be applicable for the full fiscal year. However, when a reliable estimate of the annual ETR cannot be made, the actual ETR for the year-to-date period may be the best estimate of the annual ETR. For the three and nine months ended October 31, 2014 the Company used the actual year-to-date ETR in computing our tax provision as a reliable estimate of the annual ETR cannot be made as relatively small changes in our projected income or loss produce a significant variation in our ETR. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended October 31, 2014 was impacted by the change in valuation allowance and a discrete item associated with uncertain tax positions.
The Company is currently under IRS examination for the year ended January 31, 2013. The years ended January 31, 2012 and January 31, 2014 remain open for examination by the IRS. The years ended January 31, 2010 through January 31, 2014 remain open for examination by state tax authorities. The Company is not currently under any state examinations.
The specific timing of when the resolution of each tax position will be reached is uncertain. As of October 31, 2014, we do not believe that there are any positions for which it is reasonably possible that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease within the next 12 months.

Note 9. Stock-Based Compensation and Stockholders’ Rights
Stock Incentive Plans
The Company's two stock plans are the 2011 Employee Stock Incentive Plan (the “2011 Plan”) and the 2007 Employee Incentive Stock Plan (the “2007 Plan”). Under the 2011 Plan, the Company may grant an aggregate of 2,000,000 shares to its employees and non-employee directors in the form of stock options or awards. Restricted stock or stock units awarded under the 2011 Plan are expensed ratably over the vesting period of the awards. The Company determines the fair value of its restricted stock unit awards and related compensation expense as the difference between the market value of the awards on the date of grant less the exercise price of the awards granted. The Company granted 0 awards under the 2011 Plan during the quarter ended October 31, 2014. As of October 31, 2014, there were approximately 830,694 shares available for future issuance under the 2011 Plan.
Under the 2007 Plan, the Company may grant an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares to its employees and non-employee directors in the form of stock options or awards. Restricted stock or stock units awarded under the 2007 Plan are expensed ratably over the vesting period of the awards. The Company determines the fair value of its restricted stock unit awards and related compensation expense as the difference between the market value of the awards on the date of grant less the exercise price of the awards granted. The Company granted 0 awards under the 2007 Plan during 2013 and 0 awards under the 2007 Plan during the quarter ended October 31, 2014. As of October 31, 2014, there were approximately 13,075 shares available for future issuance under the 2007 Plan.

Stockholders’ Rights

On October 15, 1996, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of one preferred stock purchase right (the "Rights") for each outstanding share of the Company's common Stock. The Rights were terminated on July 28, 2014 prior to becoming exercisable.

Note 10. Stockholders’ Equity
During the three months ended October 31, 2014, the Company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock. As of October 31, 2014, $1.1 million remained available for repurchases of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the Company’s repurchase program approved by the Board of Directors, subject to restriction under the Company's Credit Agreement with PNC. Pursuant to the Company’s Credit Agreement with PNC, the Company is prohibited from repurchasing any shares of its stock except in cases where a repurchase is financed by a substantially concurrent issuance of new shares of the Company’s common stock.


Note 11. Retirement Plans

The Company and its subsidiaries cover employees under a noncontributory defined benefit retirement plan, entitled the Virco Employees’ Retirement Plan (the “Pension Plan”). Benefits under the Employees Retirement Plan are based on years of service and career average earnings. As more fully described in the Form 10-K, benefit accruals under the Employees Retirement Plan were frozen effective December 31, 2003.

The Company also provides a supplementary retirement plan for certain key employees, the VIP Retirement Plan (the “VIP Plan”). The VIP Plan provides a benefit of up to 50% of average compensation for the last 5 years in the VIP Plan, offset by benefits earned under the Pension Plan. As more fully described in the Form 10-K, benefit accruals under this plan were frozen effective December 31, 2003.
The Company also provides a non-qualified plan for non-employee directors of the Company (the “Non-Employee Directors Retirement Plan”). The Non-Employee Directors Retirement Plan provides a lifetime annual retirement benefit equal to the director’s annual retainer fee for the fiscal year in which the director terminates his or her position with the Board, subject to the director providing 10 years of service to the Company. As more fully described in the Form 10-K, benefit accruals under this plan were frozen effective December 31, 2003.

Note 12. Warranty Accrual
The Company provides a warranty against all substantial defects in material and workmanship. In 2005 the Company extended its standard warranty from five years to 10 years. Effective February 1, 2014 the Company modified its warranty to a limited lifetime warranty. The new warranty effective February 1, 2014 is not anticipated to have a significant effect on warranty expense. The Company’s warranty is not a guarantee of service life, which depends upon events outside the Company’s control and may be different from the warranty period. The Company accrues an estimate of its exposure to warranty claims based upon both product sales data and an analysis of actual warranty claims incurred.
The following is a summary of the Company’s warranty-claim activity for the three months and nine months ended October 31, 2014 and 2013.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Results of Operations

The Company’s order rates and results of operations for the three and nine month periods ended October 31, 2014 are finally beginning to show a resurgence from the deep recessionary environment which began in 2008 and continued through 2013. For most states, tax revenues have recovered to levels enjoyed prior to the 2008 recession and the Company’s order rates are beginning to reflect this improvement. Bond funded new school construction and major renovations continue to remain at levels well below levels experienced prior to the recession.

The recent season marked a shift in the timing of both orders and deliveries in the Company's primary market. Orders, which normally peak in June, peaked in July 2014. This shifted more deliveries into the third quarter, which began August 1, 2014, compared to the prior year. This resulted in some revenues being shifted from the second quarter to the third. Therefore, quarterly comparisons from prior year may not present an accurate picture. However, since approximately 50% of the Company's revenues are generated between June and August, the nine months ended October 31, 2014 will be comparable to the prior years. Order rates for the three months ended October 31, 2014 increased by more than 13% compared to the same period last year. Because the third quarter is a relatively slow period for orders compared to our seasonally higher first and second quarters, and because order rates for six months ended July 31, 2014 were 5.5% greater compared to the same period last year, order rates for the first nine months of 2014 increased by 7.4% compared to the same period last year. This 7.4% improvement represents more than $9 million. About $3 million compensates for a reduced backlog at the beginning of the fiscal year, about $3 million of increased revenue for the first nine months, and about $3.5 million of increased backlog going into the fourth quarter. We are cautiously hopeful that the increase in third quarter order activity reflects a strengthening in our core market.

As discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2014 (the “Form 10-K") and in prior periodic reports, the Company executed a restructuring plan consisting of a voluntary early retirement plan in the third quarter of 2011, followed by more modest reductions in the fourth quarter of 2012 and second quarter of 2013. Headcount of full time employees has declined from 1,045 at February 1, 2011 to 695 at October 31, 2013. In the third quarter of 2013, the Company incurred an approximately $791,000 pension settlement charge. The charge was required due to the amount of lump sum pension benefit payments disbursed in 2013. As part of the restructuring the Company adopted a strategy of more aggressive utilization of temporary labor during the seasonally busy summer months supported by a smaller permanent workforce.
 
For the three months ended October 31, 2014, the Company earned a pre-tax profit of $4,400,000 on net sales of $62,652,000 compared to a pre-tax profit of $3,394,000 on net sales of $59,454,000 in the same period last year. The change in pre-tax profit is due to the increase in net sales and the related increase in gross margin combined with a slight decrease in variable selling, general and administrative expenses. As explained above, the prior year included a pension settlement charge of approximately $791,000.

Net sales for the three months ended October 31, 2014 increased to $62,652,000, an increase of $3,198,000, or 5.4%, compared to $59,454,000 during the same period last year. The increase was the result of unit volume increases, offset slightly by a reduction in net selling prices. Backlog at October 31, 2014 increased by $3.5 million compared to the prior year.

Gross margin as a percentage of sales was 33.6% for the three months ended October 31, 2014 compared to 35.6% in the same period last year. The reduction in gross margin as a percentage of sales was primarily attributable to a current year reduction in third quarter production levels. In order to facilitate timely delivery of product during the summer, production rates for the first six months increased by 13%. In effort to control inventory levels going into the fourth quarter of the current year, third quarter production rates declined by approximately 19%. Production rates for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 have increased by nearly 3%. Raw material costs were stable for the period.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended October 31, 2014, decreased by approximately $395,000 compared to the same period last year. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses was attributable to overall reductions in selling and administrative expenses. Interest expense increased due to increased levels of borrowing.

For the nine months ended October 31, 2014, the Company earned a pre-tax profit of $6,035,000 compared to a pre-tax profit of $5,195,000 in the same period last year. The increase in profit is due to an increase in net sales offset by a slight increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses. Additionally, the nine months ended October 31, 2013 reflected restructuring charges of $1,266,000, including the $791,000 pension settlement charge compared to $62,000 during the same period this year.

18



Net sales for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 were $139,374,000, an increase of $3,097,000 or 2.3% increase, compared to $136,277,000 in the same period last year. This increase was the result of an increase in unit volume, partially offset by a reduction in selling prices.

Gross margin as a percentage of sales declined to 35.9% for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 compared to 36.1% in the same period last year. The decline in gross margin % was attributable to a slight decrease in selling prices. Factory production rates for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 increased by nearly 3% compared to the prior year primarily due to the increase in order rates.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 increased by approximately $1,178,000 compared to the same period last year. This increase was the result of sales initiatives; increased legal expenses incurred in the first six months of fiscal 2014, and increased service costs.

During the fourth quarter of 2010 the Company established a valuation allowance on the majority of deferred tax assets. Because of this valuation allowance the effective income tax expense / (benefit)  is expected to be relatively low for fiscal 2014. Ordinarily, interim tax provisions are calculated using the estimated effective tax rate (“ETR”) expected to be applicable for the full fiscal year. However, when a reliable estimate of the annual ETR cannot be made, the actual ETR for the year-to-date period may be the best estimate of the annual ETR. For the three and nine months ended October 31, 2014 the Company used the actual year-to-date ETR in computing our tax provision as a reliable estimate of the annual ETR cannot be made as relatively small changes in our projected income or loss produce a significant variation in our ETR. The effective tax rate for the quarter ended October 31, 2014 was impacted by the change in valuation allowance and a discrete item associated with uncertain tax positions.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

Interest expense increased for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 compared to the same period last year. This is primarily due to higher average levels of borrowing under the Company's credit facility with PNC Bank to fund increased inventory levels. Borrowings under the Company's revolving line of credit with PNC Bank at October 31, 2014 increased by $4,190,000 compared to October 31, 2013 primarily due to increased levels of inventory.
Accounts receivable was lower at October 31, 2014 than at October 31, 2013, due to the timing of third quarter shipments. A larger portion of the current year third quarter revenue was shipped in August, which allowed the receivables to be collected prior to October 31, 2014. The Company traditionally builds large quantities of inventory during the first and second quarters of each fiscal year in anticipation of seasonally high summer shipments. At the end of the third quarter, inventory increased by approximately $646,000 compared to January 31, 2014 and by $3,951,000 compared to October 31, 2013 to support an increased backlog of orders at October 31, 2014. The seasonal fluctuation in inventory levels (including the typically large buildup in inventory during the first and second quarters) was financed through the Company's credit facility with PNC Bank.
For 2014 the Company adopted a goal of limiting capital spending to less than $3,000,000 for fiscal year 2014, which is less the Company's anticipated depreciation expense. Capital spending for the nine months ended October 31, 2014 was $2,584,000 compared to $2,740,000 for the same period last year. Capital expenditures are being financed through the Company's credit facility with PNC Bank and cash flow.
Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended October 31, 2014, was $2,954,000 compared to $3,442,000 for the same period last year. The Company has historically relied upon its cash flows from operations and unused borrowing capacity with PNC Bank (which was $6,285,000) as of October 31, 2014 to fund the Company's debt service requirements, capital expenditures and working capital needs.
The Company believes that cash flows from operations, together with the Company's unused borrowing capacity with PNC Bank will be sufficient to fund the Company's debt service requirements, capital expenditures and working capital needs for the next twelve months.

PART II — Other Information

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

The Company has various legal actions pending against it arising in the ordinary course of business, which in the opinion of the Company, are not material in that management either expects that the Company will be successful on the merits of the pending cases or that any liabilities resulting from such cases will be substantially covered by insurance. While it is impossible to estimate with certainty the ultimate legal and financial liability with respect to these suits and claims, management believes that the aggregate amount of such liabilities will not be material to the results of operations, financial position, or cash flows of the Company.
