Wirecard lands $1 billion investment from Japan’s Softbank

BERLIN (Reuters) – Japan’s Softbank Group Corp will invest around 900 million euros ($1 billion) in Wirecard in a convertible bond deal that could give it a 5.6 percent stake in the German digital payments company.

The investment by the world’s biggest private technology company is a vote of confidence in Wirecard’s business as it defends itself against allegations of fraud, and will allow the Munich-based firm to expand its operations in Asia.
