On 25 May 2020 Wirecard postponed its presentation of the 2019 consolidated financial statement for the third time to 18 June 2020. This worry investors because Wirecard’s CEO – Dr Markus Braun – stated on 3 May that EY would have ‘no problem’ in signing off the 2019 accounts on 4 June 2020.
The reason now mentioned for the deferral; ‘not all audit procedures have yet been completed’, does not convince at all.
