Net revenue growth of nine to 10 percent with two percentage point negative impact from foreign currency.
Diluted class A common EPS growth of 17.5 - 18.5 percent.
CEO Charlie Scharf said: “As expected, revenue growth was affected by a strong U.S. dollar and tepid growth from cross-border transactions. More importantly, global payments volume and processed transactions remained healthy and strong. While some of the headwinds will likely continue in the short-term, we are confident our investments in products such as Visa Checkout, new technologies like tokenization, and new relationships with financial institutions and merchants will continue to drive double-digit revenue growth over the long-term.”
