NEW YORK, NY – February 1, 2019 – Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer LLP (www.kaplanfox.com) is investigating Wirecard AG (“Wirecard” or the “Company”) (OTC: WCAGY, WRCDF), an online payment processing company based in Europe, concerning potential securities law violations.  Investors who purchased Wirecard securities may be affected.

On January 30, 2019, The Financial Times reported that a senior executive at Wirecard was suspected of using forged contracts in connection with several suspicious transactions.  The article refers to an internal presentation that described potentially fraudulent money flows at Wirecard relating to transactions ordered by Edo Kurniawan, who is responsible for the payment group's accounting in the Asia-Pacific region. Following this news, Wirecard's American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) fell by 9% on January 30, 2019.

On February 1, 2018, The Financial Times reported that an external law firm commissioned by Wirecard found evidence indicating “serious offenses of forgery and/or falsification of accounts.”  Following this news, Wirecard’s ADRs and other securities fell sharply in midday trading.
