Revenues for the quarter increased $453 million, or 38%, compared to the prior year quarter due to the acquisition of Engility. Adjusting for the impact of acquired revenues, revenues contracted 1.5% due to acquisition related dis-synergies.
Operating income as a percentage of revenues of 5.8%, decreased from 6.2% in the comparable prior year period, due to increased intangible asset amortization, lower current quarter net profit write-ups and acquisition and integration costs, partially offset by cost synergies.
Net income attributable to common stockholders for the quarter increased $7 million as compared to the same period in the prior year primarily due to increased operating income ($17 million, net of tax), partially offset by higher interest expense and a higher effective tax rate.
Adjusted EBITDA(1) as a percentage of revenues for the quarter remained consistent with the prior year. Cost synergies related to the acquisition were offset by lower net profit write-ups.
Diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.94 compared to $1.11 in the prior year quarter. Adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) for the quarter was $1.39 compared to $1.47 in the prior year quarter. The weighted-average diluted shares outstanding during the quarter increased to 58.3 million from 43.2 million during the prior year quarter, primarily due to shares issued for the acquisition of Engility.

Cash Generation and Capital Deployment
Cash flows provided by operating activities for the third quarter were $116 million, an increase of $30 million compared to the same period in the prior year. The improvement is primarily due to cash provided from the operating activities of Engility.
During the quarter, SAIC deployed $24 million of capital, consisting of $21 million in cash dividends and $3 million of term loan repayment. There were no plan share repurchases in the third quarter. Not included in the third quarter capital deployment was the $100 million repayment of funds borrowed on our revolving credit facility during the second quarter to directly repurchase shares from a private equity shareholder.
