NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- MasterCard (MA) - Get Report stock is tumbling 2.42% to $92.86 in Wednesday's pre-market trading after the company reported its fiscal 2015 second quarter earnings results before the market open today. 

For the recent quarter, the credit card company earned 85 cents per share on revenue of $2.39 billion.

Analysts had expected the company to earn 85 cents per share on revenue of $2.41 billion for the quarter ended June 30.

In the same period the previous year, the company earned 80 cents per share on revenue of $2.37 billion.

"Our business continues to perform well with good transaction and volume growth, particularly in cross-border, despite the mixed global economic environment and foreign exchange headwinds," CEO Ajay Banga stated. 

Net revenue growth was driven by an increase in cross-border volumes of 17%, an rise in gross dollar volume of 13%, and a growth of processed transactions of 13%. However, these factors were partially offset by a rise in rebates and incentives, the company said.

On Tuesday, shares closed up 0.82% to $95.16.
