PARIS (Agefi-Dow Jones) – Worldline payments specialist plans to take over part of the assets of its German competitor Wirecard, entangled in a huge financial scandal, Fankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung reported Friday, without citing its sources. Private investors and private equity funds would also be interested in taking over some of Wirecard’s assets, the German daily added.
Contacted by the Agefi-Dow Jones agency, Worldline was not immediately available to react to this information.
Wirecard requested last week to open bankruptcy proceedings in a Munich court. The group had recognized a few days earlier that an amount of 1.9 billion euros supposed to be held by banks in the Philippines had probably never existed.
