Philippines Confirms Death of Ex-Wirecard Executive Bauer

The Philippines confirmed a former Asian executive of disgraced German payments firm Wirecard AG, who is part of an ongoing investigation, has died.

German businessman Christopher Reinhard Bauer died on July 27 in a hospital in the Philippine capital region due to natural causes, Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra said in a mobile-phone message. He was the same person summoned by the National Bureau of Investigation in connection with the Wirecard probe, he said.

The Department of Justice has been looking at an inward remittance to Bauer’s account from Wirecard Asia in 2015, Guevarra said on Aug. 7.

Philippine investigators early Thursday recommended that two immigration officers be charged for allegedly falsifying travel records of former Wirecard executive Jan Marsalek, who went missing after the company was implicated in an accounting scandal. He was added to Interpol’s most wanted list.

Hit by coronavirus, Thyssenkrupp sees early signs of stabilization

  • Some of the conglomerate's businesses seen stabilizing in the fourth quarter.
  • Steel division to post 1 billion euro loss this year.

Ailing conglomerate Thyssenkrupp on Thursday said some businesses were stabilizing in the current quarter after suffering a heavy blow due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group said its fiscal third-quarter adjusted operating loss from continuing operations, which strips out the elevator business it recently sold, came in at 679 million euros ($800 million), less than the up to 1 billion it had flagged in May.

"We have worked hard to keep our costs under control and secure liquidity," Chief Executive Martina Merz said. "As a result we came through the crisis slightly better than initially feared in the third quarter overall."

The company, which sold its elevator unit to a private equity consortium for 17.2 billion euros, said most businesses were stabilizing or even improving quarter-on-quarter, with the exception of its struggling steel division.

Thyssenkrupp Steel Europe, the continent's second-largest player after ArcelorMittal, is expected to rack up a 1 billion euro adjusted operating loss in the fiscal year to September, the company said.
