    Wirecard Still Raises Plenty of Questions

    It is publicly listed, has a place in the prized Dax index of blue-chip German companies, and has a bigger market value than Deutsche Bank AG. When the Financial Times’s allegations of dodgy accounting pummeled the stock earlier this year, Wirecard wasn’t alone in rebuffing the reports: German regulators swooped in to protect the company by banning hedge funds from betting against it. Since the short-selling ban was lifted last week, more financial support has emerged for Wirecard, which is fighting new FT allegations about its dealings with partner companies.

    Wirecard seeks to refocus on growth after audit approval

    German payments company Wirecard sought on Thursday to refocus on growth after securing audit approval of annual results which had been delayed by allegations of fraud and false accounting at its Singapore office. Germany's leading fintech company has been shaken by a string of reports in the Financial Times, which it has denied, citing a whistleblower's allegations that local staff padded revenues through sham transactions. Wirecard said auditor EY had found "no objections against the accounting treatment of the facts that were the subject of various allegation made by a purported whistleblower in Singapore".

    The engineering behind SoftBank’s Wirecard bet
