"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.
