FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS & ANSWERS ABOUT THE STOCK SPLIT

Q1. Can you explain how the stock split that MasterCard announced is going to work? MasterCard’s Board of Directors declared a 10-for-1 stock split, expected to be effective January 21, 2014, for shareholders of record on January 9, 2014.
In a 10-for-1 stock split, each shareholder receives nine (9) additional shares for each share that he or she holds as of a certain date, known as the “record date”. As a result, the number of issued shares is multiplied by 10, and the price at which the stock trades initially on the date following the distribution date (the ex-split date) will be correspondingly reduced by a factor of 10.

Q2. What is the record date for the stock split? The record date is January 9, 2014. If you are a shareholder as of the market close on the record date, you are entitled to receive the additional shares.

Q3. What is the distribution date for the stock split? The distribution date for the additional shares is expected to be January 21, 2014. If shares are registered in your name as of the market close on the record date, and you retain the shares until the distribution date, you will receive the additional shares on the distribution date.

Q4. What is the ex-split date? The ex-split date is expected to be January 22, 2014. When the market opens on January 22, 2014, one trading day after the distribution date, shares of MasterCard will begin trading on the NYSE at the new split-adjusted price.

Q5. What happens if I sell some of my shares before the record date? If you sell your shares before the record date, you are not entitled to receive the additional split shares.

Q6. If I sell my shares between the record date and the distribution date, am I entitled to split shares? From the record date of January 9, 2014 to the expected distribution date of January 21, 2014, shares of MasterCard Class A common stock will continue to trade at the pre-split price under the Company’s ticker symbol “MA”. Because in this situation sellers receive full value of the shares they sell, they are not entitled to the split shares.

Q7. How will my additional shares of MasterCard stock be issued? No stock certificates will be issued. The additional shares you will receive as a result of the stock split will be distributed through the Direct Registration System (DRS).
• If you hold shares in a registered account with our transfer agent, Computershare, a DRS Transaction Statement, along with a Q&A and Terms and Conditions Sheet providing information about DRS, will be mailed to you at the address on file at Computershare. The DRS Transaction Statement is your confirmation; it indicates the number of additional split shares you received based on your share balance as of the record date. Keep it with your other important documents as a record of your ownership.

• If you hold shares in a brokerage account, the additional shares will automatically be deposited to your brokerage account. Please contact your broker with any questions you may have.

271584.3
Q8. Do the shares I receive from the MasterCard stock split result in taxable income? It is the Company’s understanding that, under the current laws for United States federal income tax purposes:
• the receipt of additional shares of Class A common stock as a result of this stock split will not result in any taxable income, gain or loss to stockholders;
• immediately after the stock split, the tax basis of the shares of Class A common stock held by a stockholder prior to the stock split will be divided equally between such original shares and the new shares issues with respect to the original shares; and
• the new shares will be deemed to have been acquired at the same time as the original shares.
The laws of jurisdictions other than the United States may impose income taxes on the receipt of additional shares. The Company does not provide tax advice, and we strongly recommend that you consult your tax advisor.

Q9. When is the stock expected to begin trading at its split price? The stock will begin trading at its split price beginning at the market open on January 22, 2014.

Q10. Has MasterCard ever previously split its stock?
This is the first time that the Company is splitting the stock.

Q11. What if I have more questions? For more information about DRS, the stock split or your MasterCard shareholder account, please call Computershare at (800) 837-7579. If you hold shares in a brokerage account, please contact your broker directly with any question you may have.

Nieuws

Mastercard stapt uit de 500-dollarclub
11-12-2013 22:12:16
De Dow Jones eindigde met 0,8 procent verlies.

Nu er in de VS een begrotingsdeal in de maak is tussen Democraten en Republikeinen, verliest de Federal Reserve nog een excuus om zijn stimulus verder te zetten. Beleggers reageerden negatief. De Dow Jones eindigde 0,8 procent lager.

Mastercard won wel 3,5 procent. Het bedrijf kondigde aan het dividend met 83 procent te verhogen en voor 3,5 miljard dollar eigen aandelen in te kopen. Bovendien wordt het aandeel, dat op 797 dollar noteert, binnenkort gesplitst in 10. Dat moet de verhandelbaarheid van het aandeel vergroten.

Dat betekent meteen ook dat binnen de S&P500 slechts vijf bedrijven overblijven die boven 500 dollar noteren, zijnde Apple, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Graham Holdings, Google en Priceline.com. Die laatste twee hebben ook al de drempel van 1.000 dollar genomen.

Wie bij de beursgang in mei 2006 aandelen Mastercard kocht, heeft momenteel al een rendement van 1.600 procent, inclusief dividenden. Daarmee deed het aandeel stukken beter dan de S&P500 die tijdens die periode slechts 66 procent rendement opleverde.

Ha, De Wereld.
Ik ben blij dat je hier reclame maakt voor 1 v mijn favoriete aandelen vd laatste jaren :)
Ik verschiet er wel van dat je erover een topic opent, daar je via pm vorige maand nog vond dat Mastercard veel te duur geprijsd staat en dat je het daarom niet zult kopen.
Die dure waardering, dat klopt wel, maar the trend is your friend, en the trend is al jaren onze friend bij MA.
Bovendien gaat MA de komende jaren blijven groeien (ook Visa is een goede investering), en bovendien heeft Mastercard niets v schulden op de balans staan.

Ik heb wel een strakke S/L staan, want de software die ik gebruik heeft sinds woensdag een verkoopsignaal gegeven voor de Amerikaanse beurzen.

Ja, inderdaad, ik heb half november nog zo een 120.000 € vervallen kasbons kunnen cashen. Dit was het moment om MA aan te kopen ondanks de reeds hoge koers momenteel.
Goed mogelijk dat je software momenteel een verkoopadvies geeft. Ik denk echter dat dit maar tijdelijk fenomeen is en hoofdzakelijk te maken heeft met de onzekerheid over de tapering. Eens die onzekerheid weggenomen wordt, staat de weg open om terug hoger te gaan.

(Off topic: ik heb ook enkele dagen geleden VJET en TWTR gekocht, misschien maar voor een zeer korte termijn, wat niet echt mijn gewoonte is. TWTR doet het schitterend, Vjet, daarentegen is daarentegen het meest volatiel. We zullen zien hoe dit verhaal zal eindigen. In ieder geval de winst van TWTR is wel mooi meegenomen.)

Shares of MasterCard Inc. fell as much as 6.5% in premarket trading Friday after the payment network's results missed analysts' expectations despite an increase in cardholder spending.

The miss was largely driven by a jump in payments it makes to clients for agreement renewals and meeting volume goals.

The Purchase, N.Y., company posted a profit of $623 million, or 52 cents a share, up from $605 million, or 49 cents a share, a year earlier.

Both periods reflect the company's 10-for-1 stock split, which MasterCard announced late last year.

Revenue climbed 12% to $2.13 billion, boosted by a 13% increase in processed transactions and a 18% jump in cross- border volume, which measures payments made in one country with a card issued by a bank in another country.

The results fell short of analyst estimates, who were expecting the company to earn 60 cents a share on $2.14 billion in revenue.

MasterCard's shares were down 5.3% at $75.50 in recent premarket trading. Visa Inc. and American Express Co. shares were also down in premarket trading.

MasterCard, the world's second-largest payment network after Visa, operates a network that helps process transactions for banks that issue its credit and debit cards and those that handle transactions for merchants.

The results come a day after Visa reported an 11% jump in payments volume, lifting net income by 8.8%. Visa's results topped Wall Street expectations.

Cardholders made $1.1 trillion in purchases on MasterCard cards, up 14% on a local-currency basis from a year earlier.

The increased spending was offset by higher rebates and incentives, which MasterCard pays to banks and merchants when it signs new and renewal agreements. The payments increased 23% in the quarter to $925 million, the company said.

MasterCard also recorded a $61 million charge related to litigation filed by merchants over transaction fees that retailers pay each time a customer pays with a credit card. A federal judge in December said he was granting final approval to a settlement of the litigation, a deal valued at $5.7 billion.

Stripping out the charge, the company would have earned 57 cents a share.

The settlement aims to put to bed lawsuits filed in 2005 accusing Visa and MasterCard of conspiring with banks to set the transaction fees--also known as swipe fees--at arbitrarily high levels. Several merchants and retail trade groups have opposed the settlement, and are appealing final approval of the deal.

Moscow - International payment systems Visa and MasterCard have resumed services for transactions for clients at Russia's SMP Bank and Investcapitalbank. Boris and Arkady Rotenberg who control both SMP Bank and Investcapitalbank were both on the sanctions list.
Following Obama's executive order to impose the sanctions the two credit card companies ceased to serve seven different Russian lenders according to Timur Batryev who heads the national payment system department at the Central Bank of Russia.
Rossiya Bank and Sobinbank controlled by Yury Kovalchuk also on the sanctions list were also denied service. Rossiya Bank says there was no official warning.
CEO of the SMP bank Dmitry Kalantyrsky said :"We are glad that the two biggest international payment systems have heard our arguments and reversed their decision to block (SMP bank transactions on Sunday)," The bank also released a statement: "The decision was taken by MasterCard last night and Visa - in the morning. Currently MasterCard’s service is completely restored, Visa transactions will be restored in a few hours as communication channels are being debugged and equipment settings updated," Investcapitalbank has also reported that MasterCard and Visa have resumed their services.
A spokesperson for Visa said: "The US government has informed the company Visa Inc to lift economic sanctions on SMP Bank, and Investcapitalbank due to the fact that these organizations do not meet the criteria on which sanctions are imposed,” However Visa was unable to say when or if they would return to normal operations with Rossiya Bank and Sorbinbank. Rossiya bank has already provided the answer in their case.
Rossiya based in St. Petersburg is the 15th largest bank in Russia and closely connected to members of the Russian elite and oligarch Yury Kovalchuk. The bank has announced that it will no longer carry out any foreign currency operations but will deal only with the Russian rouble. Clients have been asked to cease payments in foreign currencies.
Putin has announced that he will move forward with a nationally based system of payments such as that in Japan and China. The Japanese payment system that was first used just domestically is now used in 200 countries. Putin said: "These systems work in countries like Japan and China, and they work very well. At first they worked nationally, circulating in their own market in their own territory, for their citizens, and now they are becoming very popular,Why don't we do that? We have to do this and we will do this," There is already a system developed to make payments to the government . Russia's biggest bank said that a system being developed for several years can be launched within months on a massive scale.
Putin noted that Visa and MasterCard together control about 85 per cent of all Russian card transactions. The sanctions are bound to hurt the companies even though the present sanctions effect a very small percentage of their Russian market.

Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA) released the results from its most recently completed quarter, reporting earnings of 73 cents per share—an 18% increase—on $2.2 billion in revenue—a 14% increase. Analysts had been expecting earnings of 72 cents per share on $2.14 billion in revenue for the first quarter.



Breaking down MasterCard’s earnings results
Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA) reported that gross dollar volume rose 14%, while purchase volume increased 13% during the quarter. The payments processing company said customers issued a little more than 2 billion MasterCard and Maestro-branded cards as of the end of March. MasterCard said the three key drivers for its net revenue growth the increase in gross dollar volume, which rose to $1 trillion, the increase in processed transactions, which rose to $9.8 billion, and a 17% increase in cross-border volumes. Rebates and incentives partially offset those factors.



“We kicked off the year with a strong quarter, despite a mixed global economy,” said Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA) President and CEO Ajay Banga in a statement. “We secured several new agreements, including three of the largest retailers. Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club will flip their co-brand portfolios to MasterCard. Target will also shift its co-brand to MasterCard and use our chip and PIN technology across all of its card products as part of a commitment to provide its customers with the most secure payment product. At the same time, we continue to invest in technology and acquisitions that will speed our development of mobile and online solutions.”

Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA)’s total operating expenses rose 12% or 11% on an adjusted currency basis, rising to $892 million during the quarter, year over year. The company said the main driver of that increase was higher investments, including acquisitions.

MasterCard buys back shares
During the first three months of the year, Mastercard Inc (NYSE:MA) bought back about 21.3 million Class A common shares for about $1.7 billion. So far this quarter through April 24, Mastercard bought back 6.2 million more shares for a total of $453 million. The company has $1.5 billion left on its current repurchase authorization.
