On this news, Green Dot's share price dropped over 26%.

Then, on August 7, 2019, Green Dot Corporation released financial results for the second quarter of 2019, announcing another guidance reduction and disclosing "lower than anticipated prepaid unit sales that has caused a material reduction in active prepaid accounts".
