As a result of the integration of Internet technologies into all sales channels, whether online, mobile or point-of-sale, there has been an increasingly strong changeover to real time payment solutions. Wirecard is driving this development forward with its innovations in all areas of payment processing and card issuing. Wirecard benefits disproportionately from this development thanks to its many years of experience as a supplier of finance technology.
Wirecard is continuing its strategy based principally on organic growth in combination with acquisitions – increasingly on a global level.
The Management Board expects a positive business performance in the second half of 2015 and has confirmed its most recent forecast for the fiscal year issued in July 2015 for EBITDA of between EUR 220 million and EUR 232 million.
