HENDERSON, Nev.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 3Pea International, Inc. (OTCBB:TPNL), a payment solutions company focused on prepaid debit card program management and processing services, today announced record financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

First Quarter 2013 Highlights:

  • Revenues increased 42% to $2,111,037 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 up from $1,484,592 for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013 were $2,111,037, an increase of $626,445 compared to the same period in the prior year, when revenues were $1,484,592. The increase in revenue is due to the following factors: the first factor being the launch of several new card programs during the latter part of 2012; and the second factor due to an increase in processing, program management, development, fulfillment and customer service fees compared to the prior year. We expect our revenues to continue to trend upward as the economy improves and as we roll out additional debit card programs utilizing our newest processing platform, diversify our product line and increase the number of support services offered to our customers.

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $519,566, an increase of $256,779 compared to the same period in the prior year, when gross profit was $262,787. Our overall gross profit percentage approximated 25% and 18% during the fiscal years 2013 and 2012 which is consistent with our overall expectations.

Our net income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $226,398, an increase of $150,013 compared to the same period in the prior year, when we recorded net income of $76,385. The increase in our net income is attributable to the aforementioned factors.

"We are pleased with our first quarter performance as revenues, operating margins, and net income improved as compared to the first quarter of 2012," commented Arthur De Joya, Chief Financial Officer, 3Pea International. "We look forward to the remainder of 2013 as we continue to diversify our product line and introduce new value added services to our product mix."
