"We are pleased with the increase in our store footprint this month and our processing volume growth. It is important to note in April there are 12 public national and state holidays during which banks are closed and processing volumes are generally lower. Therefore, we expect the April processing volumes to be affected due to this seasonality," added Harold Montgomery, Calpian's Chief Executive Officer.
