Youngme Moon and Lance Uggla Proposed Additions

Mastercard Incorporated (NYSE:MA) today announced that its Board of
Directors has nominated 15 candidates for election as directors at the
company's June 25, 2019 annual meeting of stockholders. Lance Uggla and
Youngme Moon have been added to the slate as proposed directors.

"We continually seek directors who will continue to push the company to
think and act differently, while remaining consistent with our corporate
values," said Richard Haythornthwaite, chairman of the board,
Mastercard. "With Youngme and Lance, we gain deep experience across a
broad set of industries that complements our strategic vision and
increasingly diverse business."

Moon is the Donald K. David Professor of Business Administration at
Harvard Business School, where her research focuses on the intersection
of strategy, branding and innovation, with a particular focus on youth
and the digital economy. Moon also serves as the vice-chair and senior
independent director of Unilever. She has held various leadership
positions at Harvard Business School and was previously a professor at
Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Uggla is chairman and CEO of IHS Markit, positions he has held since
2018. Prior to the 2016 merger of IHS and Markit, he was the chief
executive officer of Markit, a company he founded in 2003 to deliver
transparency to the credit default swap market. The company launched the
first daily credit default swap pricing service that year. Earlier in
his career, Uggla held executive management roles at Toronto-Dominion
Securities, including vice chairman and head of Europe and Asia.

Mastercard also announced that, as part of a periodic board review and
refreshment, current directors Nancy Karch and Silvio Barzi will not
seek re-election. All other members of the current board will stand for
re-election.

"Nancy and Silvio have both had a significant impact on our evolution as
a public company over the past decade," said Ajay Banga, president and
CEO, Mastercard. "Their perspective and experience across the global
financial, retail and consumer marketing sectors have been important
contributions to the counsel and guidance the board has provided our
management team. On behalf of the entire board and management, I thank
Silvio and Nancy for their numerous contributions and wish them each the
best in their future pursuits."
