Speaking on the results, Philip W. Tomlinson, chairman and chief executive officer stated “This trimester is the first time when the income of NetSpend has been included to our total financial account as a forth operating business. The income was excellent and the rise of 22.2% over what we earned last year in the same period makes it very important for us.” He added further, “ the total cash in our hand remaining is very good and we have used over $60 million to reduce our loans as we go towards our objective of cutting down our debt to EBITDA ratio. We shall continue to use the income to reduce our loans so that we can use the money to buy other companies and buy back our shares.” The company will host a trimester conference call on Tuesday.
