    FT calls in law firm to review reporting on Wirecard

    The Financial Times has hired a law firm to review its investigations into German payments company Wirecard, which has sued the newspaper over a series of reports alleging accounting irregularities. Editor Lionel Barber called in London-based law firm RPC after the Handelsblatt daily reported at the weekend that Wirecard had given evidence to German prosecutors alleging collusion between short sellers and employees of the Financial Times. The FT, in a statement on Tuesday, rejected these allegations which it said it considered a diversionary tactic aimed at stifling further reporting on Wirecard.

    Wirecard to handle card payments for ALDI supermarket chains

    Wirecard, the German payments company, said on Friday it had signed an agreement with supermarket chains ALDI Nord and ALDI Sued to process card payments at all their stores in the country. The two retailers, founded by brothers Karl and Theo Albrecht after World War Two and run separately today, own 10,000 stores in 20 countries with combined sales estimated at 50 billion euros ($56 billion). Munich-based Wirecard said on Thursday it was teaming up with car-dealing platform AUTO1 Group to offer digital financial services to consumers, in its first deal with a company backed by SoftBank Group since it struck an alliance with the Japanese investor earlier this year.

    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 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.

    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.
