Visa Q1 profit jumps 18%, tops estimates

Visa Inc. (V) reported an 18% growth in earnings for the first quarter of fiscal 2019 as the continued growth in payments volume, cross-border volume, and processed transactions drove the revenues higher. The results exceeded analysts’ expectations. The company reaffirmed its full-year 2019 guidance. Following this, the stock inched up over 1% in the after-market session.

Net income increased 18% to $3 billion and earnings soared 21% to $1.30 per share. Adjusted earnings grew 21% to $1.30 per share. The company delivered strong results against the backdrop of an uncertain geopolitical environment.

Net revenues rose 13% to $5.5 billion driven by continued growth in payments volume, cross-border volume, and processed transactions. Exchange rate shifts versus the prior year negatively impacted reported net revenues growth by about 0.5 percentage points. New revenue accounting standard positively impacted revenue growth by about 1 percentage point.
