Wirecard: Scandal-hit firm files for insolvency

Troubled fintech company Wirecard, which powers numerous crypto debit cards on the market, has reportedly filed to open insolvency proceedings.

Guevarra said he has instructed the National Bureau of Investigation to work with the anti-money laundering council to investigate the case.

He said he had no information on whether Wirecard was operating in the Philippines, but said authorities "found something curious" about Marsalek in the immigration database.

Dierlamm said he and Braun were not commenting on the prosecutor's accusations.

During Braun's 18 years as CEO, Wirecard grew into a $28 billion "fintech" firm that won a spot in 2018 in Germany's DAX blue-chip index.

- Wirecard's expansion was driven by its long-serving chief executive and leading shareholder Markus Braun, an Austrian who led the company since 2002 until he resigned last Friday.

During insolvency procedures, companies will generally enact drastic measures to stay afloat, such as cutting staff and expenses, restructuring debt, selling a portion of its assets and others. Germany has no extradition treaty with the Philippines.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch slashed its share-price target to 1 euro from 14 euros on Wednesday, saying customers may be starting to abandon Wirecard, while banks it owes 1.75 billion euros to may be weighing the closure of credit lines.
