Sequoia Fund's Discussion of MasterCard

March 07, 2014 | About:

MasterCard’s 2013 earnings per share increased nearly 20%, driven by the continued trend toward electronic payments globally. As we believe this trend should continue for years to come, MasterCard’s long-term prospects strike us as excellent. The company’s business model is essentially a royalty on global consumption growth, supplemented by the transition away from cash as a payment medium. MasterCard is set up to produce natural expense leverage over time and requires little capital. Processing costs are highly fixed, making for high incremental margins and high returns on capital.
