As is typically the case during the first quarter of each year, the Tax Refund Solutions ("TRS") division of our Republic Processing Group ("RPG") made a proportionately significant contribution to net income for the quarter, as we completed the bulk of our tax season for 2017. In addition, the Republic Credit Solutions ("RCS") division of RPG had another strong quarter, as well, contributing $1.3 million to RPG’s net income for the quarter."
