Green Dot Corporation (NYSE:GDOT), today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

For the first quarter of 2014, Green Dot reported $159.3 million in GAAP total operating revenues and $0.33 in GAAP diluted earnings per share. On a non-GAAP basis, Green Dot reported growth of 4% year-over-year in non-GAAP total operating revenues 1 to $161.7 million and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share 1 of $0.42.

"Green Dot generated solid top line and bottom line results in Q1. In addition to posting our third sequential quarterly uptick in active cards, we also benefited from increasing operating efficiencies and an increasing mix of higher margin revenue generated from better customer usage behavior on our products. Despite a highly competitive market for prepaid cards, we believe the Green Dot brand and the overwhelming preference for our products continues to help drive our business forward,” said Steve Streit, Green Dot Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
