Visa Inc. Reports Fiscal Second Quarter 2013 Net Income of $1.3 billion or $1.92 per diluted share - Broad-based net revenue growth of 15%

- Company repurchased 12 million shares during the quarter, leaving $1.0 billion in remaining authorization

FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) today announced financial results for the Company's fiscal second quarter 2013 ended March 31, 2013.

Net income for the quarter was $1.3 billion or $1.92 per share, an increase of 17% and 20%, respectively, over the prior year adjusted results. The prior year results were adjusted to exclude a one-time non-cash benefit of $208 million related to the remeasurement of net deferred tax liabilities taken in the fiscal second quarter of 2012.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the quarter decreased 2% and diluted earnings per share increased 1% over the prior year.  All references to earnings per share assume fully-diluted class A share count unless otherwise noted. The Company's adjusted quarterly net income per share of class A common stock is a non-GAAP financial measure that is reconciled to its most directly comparable GAAP measure in the accompanying financial tables.

Net operating revenue in the fiscal second quarter of 2013 was $3.0 billion, an increase of 15% over the prior year, driven by strong growth in service revenues, data processing revenues and international transaction revenues. There was no significant impact on current quarter results related to the strengthening or weakening of the U.S. dollar over the prior year.

"Visa's strong financial and operational performance reflects continued momentum across our core business during the fiscal second quarter," said Charlie Scharf, Chief Executive Officer. "To drive future transaction growth, we continue to invest in new technologies, channels and capabilities to make Visa transactions more valuable, accessible and secure. Looking ahead, we will continue to evolve our business practices to better support clients of all sizes."

Fiscal Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights:

Payments volume growth, on a constant dollar basis, for the three months December 31, 2012, on which fiscal second quarter service revenue is recognized, was 9% over the prior year at $1.1 trillion.

Payments volume growth, on a constant dollar basis, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, was 9% over the prior year at $1.0 trillion.

Cross-border volume growth, on a constant dollar basis, was 10% for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Total processed transactions, which represent transactions processed by VisaNet, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, were 13.9 billion, a 6% increase over the prior year.

Fiscal second quarter 2013 service revenues were $1.4 billion, an increase of 10% versus the prior year, and are recognized based on payments volume in the prior quarter. All other revenue categories are recognized based on current quarter activity. Data processing revenues rose 25% over the prior year to $1.2 billion. International transaction revenues, which are driven by cross-border activity, grew 13% over the prior year to $831 million. Other revenues, which include the Visa Europe licensing fee, were $175 million, a 2% decrease over the prior year. Client incentives, which are a contra revenue item, were $567 million and represent 16% of gross revenues.

Total operating expenses were $1.1 billion for the quarter, a 13% increase over the prior year, primarily due to personnel, marketing and network and processing fees associated with investments in technology projects to support our global growth initiatives.

The effective tax rate was 32% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale investment securities were $5.6 billion at March 31, 2013.

The weighted-average number of diluted class A common stock outstanding was 660 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

Notable Events:

During the three months ended March 31, 2013, the Company repurchased 12 million shares of class A common stock, at an average price of $157.24 per share, using $1.8 billion of cash on hand. The Company has $1.0 billion of remaining funds authorized by the board of directors available for share repurchase.

As announced on April 24, 2013 the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend in the aggregate amount of $0.33 per share of class A common stock (determined in the case of class B and class C common stock on an as-converted basis) payable on June 4, 2013, to all holders of record of the Company's class A, class B and class C common stock as of May 17, 2013.

Forward-Looking Statements:

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements can be identified by the terms "outlook," "will," and similar references to the future. Examples of such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements we make about our revenue, earnings per share, incentive payments, expenses, operating margin, tax rate, capital expenditures, free cash flow, consumer credit and debit volume and the growth of those items.

By their nature, forward-looking statements: (i) speak only as of the date they are made, (ii) are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees of future performance and (iii) are subject to risks, uncertainties, assumptions and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict or quantify.  Therefore, actual results could differ materially and adversely from those forward-looking statements because of a variety of factors, including the following:

  • the impact of laws, regulations and marketplace barriers, including:
    • rules capping debit interchange reimbursement fees promulgated under the U.S. Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, or the Dodd-Frank Act;
    • rules under the Dodd-Frank Act expanding issuers' and merchants' choice among debit payment networks;
    • increased regulation outside the United States and in other product categories;
    • increased government support of national payment networks outside the United States; and
    • rules about consumer privacy and data use and security;
  • developments in litigation and government enforcement, including:
    • those affecting interchange reimbursement fees, antitrust and tax disputes; and
    • our failure to satisfy the conditions necessary to make the multidistrict litigation settlement effective;
  • economic factors, such as:
    • an increase or spread of the current European crisis involving sovereign debt and the euro;
    • the failure to raise the "debt ceiling" or to resolve the current sequestration in the United States;
    • cross-border activity and currency exchange rates;
    • material changes in our clients' performance compared to our estimates; and
    • other global economic, political and health conditions;
  • industry developments, such as competitive pressure, rapid technological developments, and disintermediation from the payments value stream;
  • system developments, such as:
    • disruption of our transaction processing systems or the inability to process transactions efficiently;
    • account data compromises or increased fraudulent or other illegal activities involving our cards; and
    • issues arising at Visa Europe, including failure to maintain interoperability between our systems;
  • costs and liquidity needs arising if Visa Europe were to exercise its right to require us to acquire all of its outstanding stock;
  • loss of organizational effectiveness or key employees;
  • failure to integrate acquisitions successfully or to effectively launch new products and businesses; and

the other factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10−K on file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. You should not place undue reliance on such statements. Unless required to do so by law, we do not intend to update or revise any forward–looking statement, because of new information or future developments or otherwise.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Results

US$ in millions, except percentages and per share data

Our reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 benefited from a one-time non-cash adjustment of $208 million related to the remeasurement of our net deferred tax liabilities ("deferred tax adjustment"), which was recorded in our income tax provision during that period. We believe the presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012, excluding the $208 million benefit, provides a clearer understanding of our operating performance in that period. The following table presents our financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to our adjusted financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

Footnote

The preceding tables present regional total volume, payments volume and cash volume, and the number of payments transactions, cash transactions, accounts and cards for cards carrying the Visa, Visa Electron and Interlink brands. Card counts include PLUS proprietary cards. Nominal and constant dollar growth rates over prior years are provided for volume-based data.

Payments volume represents the aggregate dollar amount of purchases made with cards carrying the Visa, Visa Electron and Interlink brands for the relevant period; and cash volume represents the aggregate dollar amount of cash disbursements obtained with these cards for the relevant period and includes the impact of balance transfers and convenience checks; but excludes proprietary PLUS volume.  Total volume represents payments volume plus cash volume.

Visa payment products are comprised of credit and debit programs, and data relating to each program is included in the tables. Debit programs include Visa's signature based and Interlink (PIN) debit programs.

The data presented is reported quarterly by Visa's members on their operating certificates and is subject to verification by Visa.  On occasion, members may update previously submitted information.

Visa's CEMEA region is comprised of countries in Central Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Several European Union countries in Central Europe, Israel and Turkey are not included in CEMEA. LAC is comprised of countries in Central and South America and the Caribbean. Rest of World includes Asia Pacific, Canada, CEMEA and LAC.

Information denominated in U.S. dollars is calculated by applying an established U.S. dollar/local currency exchange rate for each local currency in which Visa Inc. volumes are reported ("Nominal USD").  These exchange rates are calculated on a quarterly basis using the established exchange rate for each quarter.  To eliminate the impact of foreign currency fluctuations against the U.S. dollar in measuring performance, Visa Inc. also reports year-over-year growth in total volume, payments volume and cash volume on the basis of local currency information ("Constant USD"). This presentation represents Visa's historical methodology which may be subject to review and refinement.
