On the press release, Wirecard says due to approaching insolvency and over-indebtedness it has filed an application in the Munich district court to open the proceeding for insolvency.

    However, according to the rule of Germany, a company who has filed for insolvency can operate their business as long as they have the hope to find the investor that will acquire it. When the news surfaced, the share value has fallen by 90% which has been a huge blow to the company profile.
