MasterCard Inc reported a better-than-expected 15.5 percent jump in quarterly profit as efforts to expand its international business pay off, with more people willing to use cards instead of cash. China's decision to open up its $1 trillion a year domestic bank card market to foreign companies should further benefit the company and its larger rival Visa Inc.

France's No 1 bank BNP Paribas returned to net profit in the third quarter, recovering from a costly US legal settlement to publish what it called a "rock solid" balance sheet, sending its shares up over 4 percent. BNP - battling to restore investor and client confidence after a $8.9 billion fine from US authorities - reshuffled its top ranks in the quarter to tighten controls. It said veteran adviser and trouble-shooter Jean Lemierre would become chairman in December.
Finnish airline Finnair blamed the strength of the euro against Asian currencies for a fall in quarterly net profit and sales, in results on Friday. The company, which turned in a net profit for the third quarter of 17 million euros ($21.4 million), marking a 38-percent fall from the equivalent figure last year, was also gloomy about the outlook.
Russian energy giant Rosneft on Wednesday announced its third-quarter profits crashed as it operates under Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis and the ruble plunges. Net profit fell by 99.3 percent to 18.3 million euros ($23.4 million). The fall in profits year-on-year from 143 billion rubles to one billion (18.3 million euros) came after Rosneft asked the Russian government for massive financial support to help it survive US and EU sanctions imposed this summer.
Abu Dhabi-listed Etisalat reported a 22 percent rise in third-quarter net profit on Wednesday, missing analyst estimates despite rising domestic income, lower taxes and the firm's take-over of Maroc Telecom bolstering its bottom line.
New York Times Co reported lower-than-expected quarterly revenue and projected a further decline in advertising sales in the current quarter, sending its shares down about 7 percent.
Samsung reported its smallest quarterly profit in nearly three years Thursday as its key smartphone business faltered under competition from Apple's iPhone6 and Chinese handset makers in an increasingly saturated market.
