When questions are asked, Wirecard’s story changes. The amount and location of their supposed MCA lending has changed regularly since it was first announced late last year. Our previous letters to the supervisory board drove Wirecard to bring in an independent auditor. Today we are updating our work on MCA with new audited filings showing how Wirecard is misleading investors.
Wirecard first announced the MCA product in November 2018 as mainly Brazil, and at the time the size and growth of MCA in Brazil didn’t make sense to us given our understanding of the size of Wirecard Brazil. We subsequently found the financials that showed no MCA lending in Brazil or Turkey, but some concerning transactions in Singapore. We have also posed questions for management at the recent innovation day, all of which remain unanswered. We have also published our previous letters to Wirecard’s Supervisory Board, highlighting our concerns.
