Green Dot Corporation (NYSE: GDOT) today reported financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2020.

“The past year has been focused on preserving, stabilizing and invigorating growth across each of our business lines, and we are pleased to report continued growth in the fourth quarter, as well as progress in setting a stronger foundation for the company,” said Dan Henry, CEO of Green Dot. “Moving into 2021, we anticipate steady gains as we invest considerably in driving operational efficiencies and improvements, primarily in core banking and card management, and our customer experience. We believe this will serve as a springboard for accelerated growth and expanded margins in 2022.”

GAAP financial results for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the fourth quarter of 2019:

  • Total operating revenues on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis were $284.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from $249.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, representing a year-over-year increase of 14%.

  • GAAP net loss was $24.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to net income of $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

    Green Dot recorded an impairment charge of approximately $21 million related to facilities and internal-use software. As Green Dot adopts a work-from-anywhere corporate policy to take advantage of the many benefits of such a policy, Green Dot has commenced closure of most it's leased office locations in the U.S. beginning in 2021. While Green Dot will be required to continue making its contractual payments until its operating leases are formally terminated or expire, Green Dot recorded impairment charges to its operating lease right-of-use assets and related property and equipment located at its office facilities during the period. In addition, Green Dot recorded an impairment charge in connection with internal-use software related to legacy platforms that have been replaced by new technology platforms expected to better scale with its operations. Green Dot has excluded these impairment charges from its non-GAAP measures.1
  • GAAP diluted loss per common share was $0.45 for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to a diluted earnings per share of $0.03 for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Non-GAAP financial results for the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the fourth quarter of 2019:1

  • Non-GAAP total operating revenues1 were $274.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from $238.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, representing a year-over-year increase of 15%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $34.8 million, or 12.7% of non-GAAP total operating revenues1 for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from $21.8 million, or 9.2% of non-GAAP total operating revenues1 for the fourth quarter of 2019, representing a year-over-year increase of 59%.
  • Non-GAAP net income1 was $17.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from $7.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, representing a year-over-year increase of 141%.
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share1 was $0.31 for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from $0.14 for the fourth quarter of 2019, representing a year-over-year increase of 121%.

Reconciliations of total operating revenues to non-GAAP total operating revenues, net income to adjusted EBITDA, net income to non-GAAP net income, and diluted earnings per share to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, respectively, are provided in the tables immediately following the consolidated financial statements.

In 2020, purchase volume excludes volume generated by certain BaaS programs where the BaaS partner earns interchange and Green Dot earns a platform fee.

“Green Dot delivered another solid quarter with strong year-over-year growth, as COVID accelerated the demand for digital payments, and we capitalized on our unique collection of assets, including our infrastructure and omni-channel distribution network to deliver seamless payment and banking solutions to low to moderate-income consumers,” said Jess Unruh, interim CFO. "We intend to continue investing in 2021 with a focus on optimization and growth, which will accelerate revenue growth and allow margins to expand in 2022 and beyond. Notwithstanding this investment, we are maintaining steady margins in 2021 and expect to grow adjusted EBITDA at a rate that is inline or slightly above our forecasted revenue growth."

2021 Financial Guidance

Green Dot has provided its outlook for 2021. Green Dot’s outlook is based on a number of assumptions that management believes are reasonable at the time of this earnings release. Information regarding potential risks that could cause the actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements is set forth below and in Green Dot's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Green Dot's guidance only incorporates the late December relief package that included stimulus funds in late December and early January as well as supplemental federal unemployment benefits at $300 per week through March 2021. Green Dot's guidance does not consider any future federal stimulus or supplemental unemployment benefits, including the COVID relief bill that Congress is expected to finalize in early to mid-March. As a result, the federal relief programs that helped Green Dot deliver better than expected results in 2020 have created a headwind for its revenue and earnings in 2021. Should the federal government’s current negotiations result in another relief program, Green Dot will update its guidance accordingly.

Additionally, Green Dot intends to continue to make growth-oriented investments in 2021 that it expects will accelerate revenue growth and allow margins to expand in 2022 and beyond. Notwithstanding this investment, Green Dot is guiding steady margins in 2021 and expect to grow adjusted EBITDA at a rate that is inline or slightly above its forecasted revenue growth.

Total Non-GAAP Operating Revenues2

  • Green Dot expects its full year non-GAAP total operating revenues2 to be between $1.230 billion to $1.250 billion, or up 3% year-over-year at the mid-point.

Adjusted EBITDA2

  • Green Dot expects its full year adjusted EBITDA2 to be between $210 million to $217 million, or up 4% year-over-year at the mid-point.

Non-GAAP EPS2

  • Green Dot expects its full year non-GAAP EPS2 to be between $2.06 and $2.15, or flat year-over-year.

The components of Green Dot's non-GAAP EPS2 guidance range are as follows:

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Green Dot's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), Green Dot uses measures of operating results that are adjusted to exclude, among other things, non-operating net interest income and expense; income tax benefit and expense; depreciation and amortization, including amortization of acquired intangibles; certain legal settlement charges; stock-based compensation and related employer payroll taxes; change in the fair value of contingent consideration; impairment charges; extraordinary severance; gains or losses from equity method investments; realized gains or losses on the sale of investment securities; commissions and certain processing-related costs associated with BaaS products and services where Green Dot does not control customer acquisition; other charges and income; and income tax effects. This earnings release includes non-GAAP total operating revenues, adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated or presented in accordance with, and are not alternatives or substitutes for, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with Green Dot's financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Green Dot's non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly-titled non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Green Dot believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to management and investors regarding underlying trends in its consolidated financial condition and results of operations. Green Dot's management regularly uses these supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate Green Dot's business and make operating decisions. For additional information regarding Green Dot's use of non-GAAP financial measures and the items excluded by Green Dot from one or more of its historic and projected non-GAAP financial measures, investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of Green Dot's historic and projected non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which are attached to this earnings release, and which can be found by clicking on “Financial Information” in the Investor Relations section of Green Dot's website at http://ir.greendot.com/.

Green Dot's operations are comprised of two reportable segments: 1) Account Services and 2) Processing and Settlement Services. The Account Services segment consists of revenues and expenses derived from Green Dot's deposit account programs, such as prepaid cards, debit cards, consumer and small business checking accounts, secured credit cards, payroll debit cards and gift cards. These deposit account programs are marketed under several of Green Dot's leading consumer brand names and under the brand names of Green Dot's Banking as a Service, or "BaaS," partners. The Processing and Settlement Services segment consists of revenues and expenses derived from Green Dot's products and services that specialize in facilitating the movement of cash on behalf of consumers and businesses, such as consumer cash processing services, wage disbursements and tax refund processing services. The Corporate and Other segment primarily consists of eliminations of intersegment revenues and expenses, unallocated corporate expenses, depreciation and amortization, and other costs that are not considered when management evaluates segment performance.

To supplement Green Dot’s consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, Green Dot uses measures of operating results that are adjusted to exclude various, primarily non-cash, expenses and charges. These financial measures are not calculated or presented in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to or substitutes for operating revenues, operating income, net income or any other measure of financial performance calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. These financial measures may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures of other organizations because other organizations may not calculate their measures in the same manner as Green Dot does. These financial measures are adjusted to eliminate the impact of items that Green Dot does not consider indicative of its core operating performance. You are encouraged to evaluate these adjustments and the reasons Green Dot considers them appropriate.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Dot believes that the non-GAAP financial measures it presents are useful to investors in evaluating Green Dot’s operating performance for the following reasons:

 

 

  • Green Dot records stock-based compensation from period to period, and recorded stock-based compensation expenses and related employer payroll taxes, net of forfeitures, of approximately $18.6 million and $(0.4) million for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. By comparing Green Dot’s adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share in different historical periods, investors can evaluate Green Dot’s operating results without the additional variations caused by stock-based compensation expense and related employer payroll taxes, which may not be comparable from period to period due to changes in the fair market value of Green Dot’s Class A common stock (which is influenced by external factors like the volatility of public markets and the financial performance of Green Dot’s peers) and is not a key measure of Green Dot’s operations;

 

 

  • adjusted EBITDA is widely used by investors to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items, such as non-operating net interest income and expense, income tax benefit and expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation and related employer payroll taxes, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, impairment charges, severance costs related to extraordinary personnel reductions, certain legal settlement charges, gains or losses from equity method investments, realized gains or losses on the sale of investment securities, and other charges and income that can vary substantially from company to company depending upon their respective financing structures and accounting policies, the book values of their assets, their capital structures and the methods by which their assets were acquired; and

 

 

  • securities analysts use adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to evaluate the overall operating performance of companies.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Dot’s management uses the non-GAAP financial measures:

 

 

  • as measures of operating performance, because they exclude the impact of items not directly resulting from Green Dot’s core operations;

 

 

  • for planning purposes, including the preparation of Green Dot’s annual operating budget;

 

 

  • to allocate resources to enhance the financial performance of Green Dot’s business;

 

 

  • to evaluate the effectiveness of Green Dot’s business strategies;

 

 

  • to establish metrics for variable compensation; and

 

 

  • in communications with Green Dot’s board of directors concerning Green Dot’s financial performance.

 

 

 

 

 

Green Dot understands that, although adjusted EBITDA and other non-GAAP financial measures are frequently used by investors and securities analysts in their evaluations of companies, these measures have limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of Green Dot’s results of operations as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

 

 

  • that these measures do not reflect Green Dot’s capital expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or other contractual commitments;

 

 

  • that these measures do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, Green Dot’s working capital needs;

 

 

  • that these measures do not reflect non-operating interest expense or interest income;

 

 

  • that these measures do not reflect cash requirements for income taxes;

 

 

  • that, although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated or amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and these measures do not reflect any cash requirements for these replacements; and

 

 

  • that other companies in Green Dot’s industry may calculate these measures differently than Green Dot does, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

 

 

 

(2)

 

Green Dot does not include any income tax impact of the associated non-GAAP adjustment to adjusted EBITDA, as the case may be, because each of these non-GAAP financial measures is provided before income tax expense.

This expense consists primarily of expenses for restricted stock units (including performance-based restricted stock units), performance-based stock options and related employer payroll taxes. Stock-based compensation expense is not comparable from period to period due to changes in the fair market value of Green Dot’s Class A common stock (which is influenced by external factors like the volatility of public markets and the financial performance of Green Dot’s peers) and is not a key measure of Green Dot’s operations. Green Dot excludes stock-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP financial measures primarily because it consists of non-cash expenses that Green Dot does not believe are reflective of ongoing operating results. Green Dot also believes that it is not useful to investors to understand the impact of stock-based compensation to its results of operations. Further, the related employer payroll taxes are dependent upon volatility in Green Dot's stock price, as well as the timing and size of option exercises and vesting of restricted stock units, over which Green Dot has limited to no control. This expense is included as a component of compensation and benefits expenses on Green Dot's consolidated statements of operations.

Green Dot excludes certain income and expenses that are the result of acquisitions. These acquisition-related adjustments include items such as the amortization of acquired intangible assets, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, settlements of contingencies established at time of acquisition and other acquisition related charges, such as integration charges and professional and legal fees, which result in Green Dot recording expenses or fair value adjustments in its GAAP financial statements. Green Dot analyzes the performance of its operations without regard to these adjustments. In determining whether any acquisition-related adjustment is appropriate, Green Dot takes into consideration, among other things, how such adjustments would or would not aid in the understanding of the performance of its operations. These items are included as a component of other general and administrative expenses on Green Dot's consolidated statements of operations, as applicable for the periods presented.

Green Dot excludes certain income and expenses that are not reflective of ongoing operating results. It is difficult to estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Although these events are reflected in Green Dot's GAAP financial statements, Green Dot excludes them in its non-GAAP financial measures because Green Dot believes these items may limit the comparability of ongoing operations with prior and future periods. These adjustments include items such as amortization attributable to deferred financing costs, impairment charges related to long-lived assets, gains or losses from equity method investments, credit-related impairment and/or realized gains or losses on the sale of investment securities, legal settlement expenses and other income and expenses, as applicable for the periods presented. In determining whether any such adjustment is appropriate, Green Dot takes into consideration, among other things, how such adjustments would or would not aid in the understanding of the performance of its operations. Each of these adjustments, except for amortization of deferred financing costs, gains and losses from equity method investments and credit-related impairment and/or realized gains and losses on the sale of investment securities, which are all included below operating income, are included within other general and administrative expenses on Green Dot's consolidated statements of operations.

During the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020, Green Dot recorded charges of $3.8 million and $10.9 million, respectively, principally related to compensation in connection with transition and employment agreements of certain former executives. Green Dot records charges for severance costs related to extraordinary personnel reductions. Although severance expenses are an ordinary part of its operations, the magnitude and scale of this ongoing reduction in workforce for redundancies is not expected to be repeated. This expense is included as a component of compensation and benefits expenses on Green Dot's consolidated statements of operations.

Represents the tax effect for the related non-GAAP measure adjustments using Green Dot's year to date non-GAAP effective tax rate. It also excludes both the impact of excess tax benefits related to stock-based compensation and the IRC §162(m) limitation that applies to performance-based restricted stock units expense as of December 31, 2020.

Represents commissions and certain processing-related costs associated with Banking as a Service ("BaaS") products and services where Green Dot does not control customer acquisition.

These amounts represent estimated adjustments for non-operating net interest income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, employee stock-based compensation and related employer taxes, contingent consideration, impairment charges, severance costs related to extraordinary personnel reductions, earnings and losses from equity method investments, realized gains and losses from investment securities, legal settlement gains and expenses and other income and expenses. Employee stock-based compensation expense includes assumptions about the future fair value of the Company’s Class A common stock (which is influenced by external factors like the volatility of public markets and the financial performance of the Company’s peers).
