2 Fiscal Second Quarter 2018 — Financial Highlights GAAP net income in the fiscal second quarter was $2.6 billion or $1.11 per share, increases of 505% and 523%, respectively, over prior year’s results. Prior year’s results included two special items related to the legal entity reorganization of Visa Europe and the formation of the Visa Foundation. Excluding these special items, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share increased 26% and 30%, respectively, over prior year's adjusted results. Exchange rate shifts versus the prior year positively impacted earnings per share growth by approximately 2 percentage points. All references to earnings per share assume fully-diluted class A share count. Net operating revenues in the fiscal second quarter were $5.1 billion, an increase of 13%, driven by continued growth in payments volume, cross-border volume and processed transactions. Exchange rate shifts versus the prior year positively impacted reported net operating revenue growth by approximately 1.5 percentage points. Payments volume for the three months ended December 31, 2017, on which fiscal second quarter service revenue is recognized, grew 10% over the prior year on a constant-dollar basis. Payments volume for the three months ended March 31, 2018, grew 11% over the prior year on a constant-dollar basis. Cross-border volume growth, on a constant-dollar basis, was 11% for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Total processed transactions, which represent transactions processed by Visa, for the three months ended March 31, 2018, were 29.3 billion, a 12% increase over the prior year. Fiscal second quarter service revenues were $2.3 billion, an increase of 13% over the prior year, and are recognized based on payments volume in the prior quarter. All other revenue categories are recognized based on current quarter activity. Data processing revenues rose 15% over the prior year to $2.1 billion.

Operating expenses were $1.7 billion for the fiscal second quarter, a 4% increase over the prior year's results, including the special item related to the charitable donation to the Visa Foundation. Excluding the special item, operating expenses grew 18% over the prior year, primarily driven by personnel and marketing expenses.

Financial Outlook for Fiscal Full-Year 2018 Visa Inc. updates its financial outlook for fiscal full-year 2018:  Annual net revenue growth: Low double-digits on a nominal basis, with approximately 1 percentage point of positive foreign currency impact;  Client incentives as a percentage of gross revenues: 21.5% to 22.0% range;  Annual operating expense growth: Low double-digits adjusted for special items in fiscal 2017 (see note below);  Annual operating margin: High 60s;  GAAP and adjusted effective tax rate: 21% to 22% range, which includes a 6 percentage point reduction resulting from U.S. tax reform; and  Annual diluted class A common stock earnings per share growth including the impact of U.S. tax reform: Low-60's on a GAAP nominal dollar basis and high-20's on an adjusted, non-GAAP nominal dollar basis (see note below). Both include approximately 9 to 10 percentage points driven by U.S. tax reform and approximately 1.5 percentage points of positive foreign currency impact. Note: The financial outlook for fiscal full-year 2018 includes Visa Europe integration expenses of approximately $60 million for the full-year.

10 Visa Inc. Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Results Fiscal Second Quarter of 2018 (unaudited) Our financial results for the six months ended March 31, 2018 and the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 reflect the impact of certain significant items that we believe were not indicative of our operating performance in these or future periods, as they were either non-recurring or had no cash impact. As such, we believe the presentation of adjusted financial results excluding the following items provides a clearer understanding of our operating performance for the periods presented. There were no comparable adjustments recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2018. • Remeasurement of deferred tax balances. During the six months ended March 31, 2018, in connection with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act's reduction of the corporate income tax rate, we remeasured our net deferred tax liabilities as of the enactment date, resulting in the recognition of a non-recurring, non-cash income tax benefit estimated to be approximately $1.1 billion. • Transition tax on foreign earnings. During the six months ended March 31, 2018, in connection with the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act’s requirement that we include certain untaxed foreign earnings of non-U.S. subsidiaries in our fiscal 2018 taxable income, we recorded a one-time transition tax estimated to be approximately $1.1 billion. • Elimination of deferred tax balances. During the three and six months ended March 31, 2017, in connection with our legal entity reorganization, we eliminated deferred tax balances originally recognized upon the acquisition of Visa Europe, resulting in the recognition of a non-recurring, non-cash income tax provision of $1.5 billion. • Charitable contribution. During the three and six months ended March 31, 2017, associated with our legal entity reorganization, we recognized a non-recurring, non-cash general and administrative expense of $192 million, before tax, related to the charitable donation of Visa Inc. shares that were acquired as part of the Visa Europe acquisition and held as treasury stock. Net of the related cash tax benefit of $71 million, determined by applying applicable tax rates, adjusted net income increased by $121 million.

Several European Union countries in Central Europe, Israel and Turkey are not included in CEMEA. LAC is comprised of countries in Central and South America and the Caribbean. International includes Asia Pacific, Canada, CEMEA, Europe and LAC. Information denominated in U.S. dollars is calculated by applying an established U.S. dollar/local currency exchange rate for each local currency in which Visa Inc. volumes are reported (“Nominal USD”). These exchange rates are calculated on a quarterly basis using the established exchange rate for each quarter. To eliminate the impact of foreign currency fluctuations against the U.S. dollar in measuring performance, Visa Inc. also reports year-over-year growth in total volume, payments volume and cash volume on the basis of local currency information (“Constant USD”). This presentation represents Visa’s historical methodology which may be subject to review and refinement. Effective June 9, 2016, Article 8 of the EU Interchange Fee Regulation states that payment card networks cannot impose reporting requirements or the obligation to pay fees on payment transactions where their payment brand is present but their network is not used. Prior to this regulation, Visa collected a small service fee in a few countries, particularly France, on domestic payment transactions where Visa cards are co-badged with a domestic network. Clients in Europe continued to report co-badged volume through the quarter ended September 2016; however, Europe co-badged volume and transactions have been excluded from all periods.
