Wirecard: too many unanswered questions -

German law firm Schirp & Partner Rechtsanwälte demands the appointment of

special auditor under section 142 of the German Stock Corporation Act

German fintech group Wirecard has failed to answer urgent questions raised

by the Financial Times, especially in recent articles published on Tuesday

and Wednesday last week. The Financial Times has unearthed documents that

seem to show 34 key clients of Wirecard's Dubai subsidiary, equivalent to

one quarter of Wirecard group's reported turnover and half its EBITDA for

fiscal year 2016, who as per the Financial Times' reporting have in part

ceased operations and in part could not confirm a business relationship with

the company. Wirecard has responded rather lamely to these allegations,

denying all impropriety but refusing to go into the details and state

specifically which particular allegation it considers untrue. Most

astonishingly, Wirecard has claimed that the 34 companies mentioned by the

Financial Times were "labels of customer clusters", each cluster aggregating

hundreds of individual genuine clients. This explanation has in itself

raised eyebrows around the globe and does not seem to satisfy common

financial reporting standards.

Wirecard has since then named KPMG as its own auditor to look into the

matter. Leading German lawyers feel that this is not nearly enough. Dr.

Wolfgang Schirp from Schirp & Partner Rechtsanwälte mbB in Berlin: "In the

current situation, an independent auditor is needed. Investors cannot

confide in someone who reports to the Wirecard board. Therefore, we are

assembling a group of investors to force the appointment of a special

auditor under section 142 of the German Stock Corporation Act. This special

auditor will independently examine the matter and report to shareholders. To

reach the quorum of 1/20 of Wirecard's capital needed under section 122 of

the German Stock Corporation Act, we welcome participation by as many

shareholders as possible".
