Dr. Markus Braun, CEO, Wirecard AG, said, “In the first half year our growth accelerated, hence we are looking extremely optimistically towards the second half of 2019. Accordingly we have increased our EBITDA forecast for 2019 as well as our Vision 2020.”

The Management Board of Wirecard AG raised its forecast for the fiscal year 2019 to an EBITDA of between EUR 765 million and EUR 815 million (before: EUR 760 million and EUR 810 million).

This forecast is based on, amongst other things, the continued dynamic growth of the global e-commerce market, the trend towards digitalization in the bricks and mortar trade, the acquisition of new customers, cross-selling effects with existing customers and the continuous expansion of the value chain to include valuable additional services such as data analytics, loyalty programs and financial services including loans.

Additionally the vision 2020 has been raised. A transaction volume higher than EUR 230 billion is expected. On consolidated revenue level more than EUR 3.2 billion are expected with an unchanged corridor of the EBITDA margin and an unchanged FCF conversion.
