MasterCard (NYSE: MA) reported Q2 EPS of $0.85, in-line with the analyst estimate of $0.85.

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $2.4 billion, a 1% increase versus the same period in 2014. (The Street was looking for revenue of $2.41 billion.) Adjusted for currency, net revenue increased 7%. Net revenue growth was driven by the impact of the following:

  • An increase in cross-border volumes of 17%;
  • A 13% increase in gross dollar volume, on a local currency basis, to $1.1 trillion; and
  • An increase in processed transactions of 13%, to 12.0 billion.

These factors were partially offset by an increase in rebates and incentives, primarily due to new and renewed agreements and increased volumes. Acquisitions contributed 2 percentage points to total net revenue growth.

Worldwide purchase volume during the quarter was up 12% on a local currency basis versus the second quarter of 2014, to $841 billion. As of June 30, 2015, the company’s customers had issued 2.2 billion MasterCard and Maestro-branded cards.
