"Considering the overall environment, we are pleased to report solid quarterly results as compared to an exceptionally strong Q1 2015. Our investments in Lifeboat Distribution segment delivered solid results as it continued to execute on its strategic plan. Our TechXtend segments revenues were down compared to an exceptionally strong Q1 last year, which benefited from a strong level of extended payment term sales transaction business," said Simon F. Nynens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We see opportunities for growth in the remainder of this year. We bought back a total of approximately 53,000 shares in the first quarter of 2016 and we still have approximately 415,000 shares of Common Stock available for future repurchase. We will continue to buy back shares according to our 10-b5 Stock Repurchase Plan."
Net sales for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 increased 1% or $0.6 million to $93.3 million compared to $92.7 million for the same period in 2015. Total sales for the first quarter of 2016 for our Lifeboat Distribution segment were $86.3 million compared to $82.9 million in the first quarter of 2015, representing an increase of $3.4 million or 4%. Total sales for the first quarter of 2016 for our TechXtend segment were $7.0 million compared to $9.7 million in the first quarter of 2015, representing a decrease of $2.8 million or 28%.
The 4% increase in net sales for the Lifeboat Distribution segment was mainly a result of the addition of several key product lines and our ongoing strategy of strengthening of our account penetration. This was offset in part by lower sales to one of our key accounts. The 28% decrease in net sales in the TechXtend segment was primarily due to a $2.2 million decrease in extended payment terms sales transactions and lower hardware sales of $0.4 million as compared to the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.
Gross Profit for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 was $6.0 million, a 6% decrease as compared to $6.4 million for the first quarter of 2015. Gross profit for our Lifeboat segment in the first quarter of 2016 was slightly lower at $5.1 million compared to $5.2 million for the first quarter of 2015, representing a 2% decrease. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment in the first quarter of 2016 was $0.8 million compared to $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2015, representing a 29% decrease. This decrease for the TechXtend segment was primarily due to the decreased sales volume in the current year.
Gross profit margin (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016 was 6.4% compared to 6.9% for the first quarter of 2015. Gross profit margin for our Lifeboat Distribution segment for the first quarter of 2016 was 6.0% compared to 6.3% for the first quarter of 2015. The decrease in gross profit margin for the Lifeboat Distribution segment was primarily caused by a program change by one of our main vendors, causing gross margins to decline by 2.7% for that line. Gross profit margin for our TechXtend segment for the first quarter of 2016 was essentially flat at 11.5% compared to the first quarter of 2015.
Total selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the first quarter of 2016 was essentially flat at $4.5 million compared to the first quarter of 2015. As a percentage of net sales, SG&A expenses for first quarter of 2016 were 4.8% compared to 4.9% for the first quarter of 2015.
For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $528,000 or 33.9% of income, compared to $684,000 or 34.5% of income for the same period in 2015.
