However, with the recent influx of transportation funding and new additions to our product portfolio, we experienced strong revenue growth and are off to a solid start to 2016."
Mr. Pritchett went on to say, "The focus on our complete security network portfolio has allowed us to diversify our customer base and add several new retail accounts. We look to drive revenue by continuing this strategy, which provides sustained growth in our security network product sales, along with the increasing adoption of our CohuHD RISE product line."
Financial Results, First Quarter of 2016 Compared to First Quarter of 2015
Revenue for the first quarter of 2016 totaled $10,130, as compared to revenue of $8,099 for the first quarter of the prior year, an increase of approximately 25%. The Company's subsidiary, CohuHD, generated approximately $4,544 and $3,353 in revenue during these periods, respectively.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2016 totaled $3,864. This compares to gross profit of $3,219 for the first quarter of 2015, an increase of 20%. The increase was attributable to Company-wide revenue growth.
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2016 totaled $3,326. This compares to operating expenses of $3,129 for the first quarter of 2015, an increase of 6%. The majority of the increase was related to higher incentive expenses due to larger revenue volumes in the first quarter of 2016.

The income tax provision for the first quarter of 2016 was $196, $178 higher than the first quarter of 2015. This is largely due to higher projected taxable income for the quarter ended March 31, 2016 as compared to March 31, 2015.
