Yesterday, an article from a free-lance journalist was published on an online portal of a German news magazine. The article addresses positions in Wirecard’s balance sheet, especially well-known acquiring receivable positions. Not only are these positions well-known, they relate to a business Wirecard has been active in for over ten years in a very successful way.
In all of its "suggestions" and "assumptions" this article lacks any substance and is completely meaningless.
For your information:
The “acquiring receivables” and “acquiring liabilities” are explained in detail on pages 210f and 245f of the 2015 annual report.
Please contact the Wirecard IR team with any further questions.
