    Wirecard teams up with India to issue PAN cards

    German payments company Wirecard said on Wednesday it would work with India to simplify the process of issuing tax identity cards required to open bank accounts, transfer money or complete business transactions. The deal, with state company UTI Infrastructure Technology and Financial Services, seeks to widen the distribution of so-called PAN cards in the country of 1.3 billion where most people still live and work in the informal economy. Wirecard, which is already present in India, said its network of 15,000 retail agents in 350 cities would help collect and scan in the documents that people need to apply for a PAN card.

    Wirecard document points to reliance on 3 partners

    An internal Wirecard spreadsheet shows that three partner companies contributed half the sales and more than 90 per cent of the profits to the scandal-hit German payments group in 2016 and early 2017. The properties of that document indicated it was created and updated by Kai Oliver Zitzmann, Wirecard’s head of corporate accounting and international reporting. Titled an “overview” (“übersicht”), Mr Zitzmann’s spreadsheet recorded payment volumes, revenues, costs and profits routed through Wirecard‘s operations in Dubai, Dublin, and Munich from companies known as “acquirers” — industry jargon meaning financial institutions that enable merchants to accept credit card payments.

    Wirecard sees profit potential of Softbank alliance at up to 273 million euros

    Wirecard sees the total five-year profit potential from its alliance with Japan's Softbank Group Corp at between 209 million euros and 273 million euros ($235-$307 million), the German payments company said on Friday. Wirecard struck the partnership last month with Softbank, to which it is issuing 900 million euros in convertible bonds, and gave a first estimate of its profit potential in an invitation to its annual general meeting on June 18. The present value of the estimated profit gains, after applying an 8.5 percent discount rate to reflect Wirecard's cost of capital, was betweeen 152 million and 199 million euros, the company said.

    Wirecard eyes share buybacks, sales leads from Softbank alliance

    German payments firm Wirecard is considering buying back shares following its partnership with Japan's Softbank Group which it said on Wednesday had already created leads for potential cooperation in digital payments. Wirecard will pay out to shareholders "a substantial portion" of the proceeds of a 900 million euro ($1 billion) convertible bond issue that Softbank will buy as part of the alliance struck last month, CEO Markus Braun said. "We have already started very quickly to make this partnership happen," Braun told analysts on a conference call after Wirecard reported a 41 percent increase in first-quarter core profits, helping to lift its shares price.

    Trade concerns keep a lid on Europe's rise, upbeat earnings boost Germany

    German shares led gains in Europe on Wednesday as robust earnings from the country's Siemens and Wirecard overshadowed mounting worries over a U.S.-China trade deal. Chinese Vice Premier Liu He will travel to Washington on Thursday for two days of trade talks, in a bid to avoid a sharp increase in tariffs on Chinese goods that U.S. President Donald Trump had threatened to impose over the weekend. "The fact that Chinese Vice-Premier Liu He is still expected to arrive in Washington to keep the talks going is probably the reason why this has not turned into an absolute meltdown," Elwin de Groot, head of macro strategy at Rabobank, said.

    Wirecard Boosts Profit Forecast After Payment Growth Jumps

    Wirecard AG raised its earnings forecast for the year after first-quarter profit jumped on growing transactions, suggesting allegations of accounting irregularities aren’t affecting the German payments company’s business. Increasing its 2019 profit guidance to as much as 810 million euros ($908 million) is good news for Chief Executive Officer Markus Braun, who has battled the allegations since January. Combining emerging digital financial services on a single platform “will drive the formation of one of the world’s largest growth markets,” Braun -- also Wirecard’s biggest shareholder -- said in a statement Wednesday.

    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 ($18.3 billion) 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".
