Mastercard profit rises 27 percent as it processes more payments

April 30 (Reuters) - Mastercard Inc reported a 26.7 percent rise in quarterly profit on Tuesday, as a strong U.S. job market and a boom in online shopping boosted transaction volumes on the company’s payment network.

Net income rose to $1.9 billion, or $1.80 per share, in the first quarter ended March 31 from $1.5 billion, or $1.41 per share, a year earlier. bit.ly/2vv9PfA
