Aschheim (Munich) (ots) - The Management Board and the Supervisory
Board of Wirecard AG has decided to commission the audit firm KPMG to
conduct an additional independent audit to clarify fully and
independently all accusations raised by the British newspaper
"Financial Times".

The audit will begin immediately. KPMG is obliged only to the
Supervisory Board and will present the audit report in due course.
KPMG will receive unrestricted access to all information on all
levels of the Group. The results of the report will be published.
Thomas Eichelmann, Chairman of the audit committee of the Supervisory
Board, and former CFO of Deutsche Börse AG, will support the audit on
Wirecard's side.

Wulf Matthias, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Wirecard AG,
said, "We have complete confidence in the audit procedures performed
to date and their results. We assume this renewed independent review
will lead to a final end to all further speculation."

Markus Braun, CEO of Wirecard AG, said, "I am convinced that
confidence in our successful and strongly growing business will be
strengthened as a result of this independent audit."
