From what I read on the web:

Book value per share = Stockholders' Equity - Preferred Stock Equity/Average number of Common Shares Number

So if we look into the Visa balance sheet:

Visa Balance sheet

That means:

Book Value Per Share = Common Stock Equity/Ordinary Shares Number

So 34,509,000/2,182,915 = 15.81, but when I go to statistics Book Value Per Share for the quarter which I calculated was 16.23.

So my question is what I'm missing, is my formula not correct?
