Visa Inc. to Host Investor Conference Call to Discuss Changes to its Income Statement Presentations and Other Pending Financial Impacts

Oct 26, 2010, 16:05 ET from Visa Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) announced today that it will host an informational investor call to communicate the following changes that affect the presentation of Visa's financial results:  

  • Incorporating CyberSource results;
  • Reporting of Non-Visa transaction pass-through revenue and expense;
  • Adjusting for Visa Extras revenue and expense; and
  • Revaluing the Visa Europe Put option.

The call will take place today, October 26, 2010 at 5:00pm Eastern Time, hosted by Byron Pollitt, Chief Financial Officer, with the goal of clarifying these matters before the Company's fiscal fourth quarter and full-year 2010 financial results are released on Wednesday, October 27, 2010.

The revaluation of the Visa Europe Put option will have a positive non-cash impact on our fiscal fourth quarter and full-year earnings and does not reflect any change in Visa Europe's intent to exercise. The changes in Visa Extras and non-Visa transaction pass-through revenue and expense will have no affect on net income and will be incorporated into fiscal 2011 guidance.

The dial-in information for this call is 888-790-4410 (within the US) or +1-773-756-0127 (outside the US) and the passcode is 9888542. A replay of the call will be available for one week. The replay can be accessed by dialing 800-879-5513 (within the US) and +1-402-220-4734 (outside the US).  All interested parties are invited to listen to the live webcast at http://investor.visa.com. A PowerPoint presentation will be available shortly before the call and a replay of the webcast will be available on Visa's Investor Relations website for 30 days.

The Company's self imposed "quiet period", continues to be in effect, during which time company executives will not be interacting with the investment community. This quiet period will extend until our fiscal fourth quarter and full-year 2010 financial results are released on October 27, 2010.
