The reorganization of UDI has failed: the district court sends “fixed-​rate” companies into bankruptcy, 02.09.2021 | zur Website 

The Leipzig Dis­trict Court opened in­solv­ency pro­ceed­ings on Tues­day for five “fixed-​rate” com­pan­ies in the UDI Group. As the court an­nounced to the Han­dels­blatt, three sim­ilar de­cisions for other com­pan­ies should also be made in the course of Wed­nes­day. The court had opened the pro­ceed­ings for the Barleben-​Ebendorf bio­gas plant in Saxony-​Anhalt, which also be­longs to the group, at the end of July. This makes it of­fi­cial: The UDI group, which fin­anced bio­mass and solar sys­tems with the money from private in­vestors, is not be­ing re­struc­tured un­der its own management.”

Nuremberg-​based in­vest­ment com­pany UDI has re­cently run afoul of BaFin, Germany’s fed­eral fin­an­cial reg­u­lator.

“Millions in damage for EY”: The Wirecard scandal is already costing the auditing company important orders. Now the legal risks are also growing due to lawsuits and investigations, 16.06.2021 | Read more

In­vestor law­yers sus­pect that EY Ger­many will try to shake off pos­sible li­ab­il­ity claims by re­struc­tur­ing the or­gan­iz­a­tion. In fact, EY is cur­rently ex­pand­ing the higher-​level West­ern Europe unit, pro­cesses are be­ing stand­ard­ized, ser­vices are be­ing bundled. In­vestor law­yer Wolfgang Schirp from Ber­lin sus­pects that EY is pur­su­ing a plan B: In the next few years, all im­port­ant EY cus­tom­ers could be trans­ferred to the European unity and the Ger­man sub­si­di­ary could be “emp­tied” from an eco­nomic point of view. Plaintiffs could be left empty-handed.

As early as mid-​March, fash­ion re­tailer Ronny Rühle sub­mit­ted the ur­gent ap­plic­a­tion to the Higher Ad­min­is­trat­ive Court in Bautzen,” writes the Säch­s­is­che Zei­tung. “That has now been de­cided in fa­vor of rapid tests for em­ploy­ees.” The de­cision took 4 weeks to com­plete. Rühle wanted to sus­pend the ob­lig­a­tion to test for a pos­sible corona in­fec­tion of his em­ploy­ees. He ar­gued, among other things, with pos­sible “in­ter­fer­ence with the phys­ical in­teg­rity of many people” and the costs that would have to be borne by the com­pan­ies, “which have been bear­ing the brunt of the clos­ings ordered ac­cord­ing to the Corona Pro­tec­tion Or­din­ance for months”. The court dis­agreed here and jus­ti­fied this in over 60 in­di­vidual points.

Union Investment plans to take action against auditor EY The Wirecard accounting scandal draws wider circles, 01. Oktober 2020, Nr. 189, Seite 3

Cru / sck Frank­furt / Mu­nich – New find­ings from the ex­am­in­a­tion of Wirecard’s books by EY (Ernst & Young) could cre­ate a tail­wind for law­suits against the former aud­itor of the pay­ment ser­vice pro­vider in­volved in an ac­count­ing scan­dal.

They should have closed alone to avoid crowds and thus re­lieve the health sys­tem. […] In legal terms, the law­yers ar­gue primar­ily with the pro­tec­tion of prop­erty in the Ba­sic Law. The massive en­croach­ments on fun­da­mental rights may have been jus­ti­fied. How­ever, they are only con­sti­tu­tional if the le­gis­lature provides for fin­an­cial com­pens­a­tion for those af­fected at the same time. The law­yers have also asked Health Min­is­ter Jens Spahn (CDU) by let­ter. This com­pens­a­tion could not com­pensate any­one for the full dam­age, but from the point of view of the law­yers would at least have to cover the op­er­at­ing costs of those af­fected. It is not over­looked that this “will en­tail con­sid­er­able bur­dens on the fed­eral budget”, ac­cord­ing to an ana­lysis sent to the min­is­ter.

It makes no sense to sue someone who is already broken and from whom noth­ing can be ob­tained,” says the Ber­lin law­yer Wolfgang Schirp. In­stead, in co­oper­a­tion with his col­league Marc Lieb­scher, Schirp is sub­mit­ting class ac­tion law­suits by ag­grieved in­vestors against the EY aud­it­ors. 4,000 plaintiffs have already re­por­ted and the first dozen com­plaints have already been filed with the Stut­tgart Re­gional Court. The law­suits are dir­ec­ted against the Ger­man branch of EY, Ernst Young GmbH Wirtschaft­s­prü­fungs­gesell­schaft based in Stut­tgart. Schirp hopes to be able to as­sert claims amount­ing to over 500 mil­lion euros. He re­lies on the global size of EY. The li­ab­il­ity claim is lim­ited to the Ger­man EY sub­si­di­ary and not to the en­tire group. “I think that EY is let­ting its im­port­ant Ger­man sub­si­di­ary go bank­rupt is un­think­able,” says Schirp. Such a scen­ario, said the law­yer, would her­ald the end of the en­tire EY net­work. […] Can one speak of in­tent in such cir­cum­stances? Law­yer Schirp thinks that. It is aimed at the pre­vi­ous busi­ness re­ports, in which “the aud­it­ors have not even re­ques­ted a bal­ance con­firm­a­tion from the bank,” as Schirp says.

We have ap­plied to the fed­eral states to re­cog­nize an ob­lig­a­tion to provide ad­equate com­pens­a­tion in prin­ciple,” ex­plains law­yer Wolfgang Schirp as a rep­res­ent­at­ive of the ini­ti­at­ive. “The ap­plic­a­tions were un­an­im­ously re­jec­ted by all fed­eral states be­cause neither the In­fec­tion Pro­tec­tion Act nor the po­lice and reg­u­lat­ory law or state li­ab­il­ity law grants a claim to com­pens­a­tion.” Be­cause this is ac­tu­ally a stick­ing point of the IfSG: Ac­cord­ing to this law, only busi­ness own­ers who have to close their com­pany due to their own in­fec­tion are com­pensated. Schirp: “The mem­bers of our ini­ti­at­ive were not and are not in­fec­ted them­selves. They did not spread the corona virus. They are com­pletely to blame for the situ­ation. The clos­ure of their busi­ness premises was jus­ti­fied by re­du­cing the at­tract­ive­ness of the in­ner cit­ies and avoid­ing crowds and sup­port the health sys­tem. ” Emer­gency aid – in­so­far as it was paid – could in part mit­ig­ate massive eco­nomic con­sequences, but by no means avert it; in ad­di­tion, many of the re­stric­tions still ap­ply. Re­stric­tions that con­tinue to stand in the way of eco­nomic op­er­a­tion in the cinema sec­tor, for ex­ample. In the opin­ion of those in­volved in the ini­ti­at­ive and their legal ad­visers, cur­rent prac­tice is not in ac­cord­ance with the Ba­sic Law. At­tor­ney Siegfried de Witt, ex­pert on state li­ab­il­ity law: “The com­pany clos­ings rep­res­ent a dir­ect en­croach­ment on the owner’s prop­erty pro­tec­ted by Art. 14 GG. In ad­di­tion, they en­croach on the ba­sic right of free­dom of oc­cu­pa­tion, de­pend­ing on the case up to com­plete oc­cu­pa­tional bans In­ter­fer­ences with fun­da­mental rights may in them­selves be jus­ti­fied be­cause the au­thor­it­ies be­lieve they were ne­ces­sary to pro­tect the health of the pop­u­la­tion and the health sys­tem. How­ever, they are only con­sti­tu­tional if those af­fected are gran­ted fin­an­cial com­pens­a­tion The amount to be de­cided by the le­gis­lature.

800 traders are pushing for financial compensation, 14. August 2020 | read more

For many res­taur­at­eurs, disco op­er­at­ors and hoteliers, the tem­por­ary eco­nomic stand­still is life-​threatening. The state aid pro­grams do noth­ing to change that. The Ber­lin ad­min­is­trat­ive law­yer Siegfried de Witt speaks of the most ser­i­ous en­croach­ments on fun­da­mental rights since the ex­ist­ence of the Fed­eral Re­pub­lic. That is why he and his law­yer col­league Wolfgang Schirp rep­res­ent an ini­ti­at­ive of 800 trades­people who have now lodged con­sti­tu­tional com­plaints. This also in­cludes cinema op­er­ator Flebbe. Al­though the state has ini­ti­ated aid pro­grams, the eco­nomic situ­ation re­mains threat­en­ing for many com­pan­ies. As a rep­res­ent­at­ive of the ini­ti­at­ive of more than 800 traders, Schirp ap­plied to the 16 fed­eral states to re­cog­nize reas­on­able com­pens­a­tion on the mer­its. “The ap­plic­a­tions were un­an­im­ously re­jec­ted by all fed­eral states be­cause neither the In­fec­tion Pro­tec­tion Act nor the po­lice and reg­u­lat­ory law or state li­ab­il­ity law grants a claim to com­pens­a­tion,” he said at a press con­fer­ence in Ber­lin. There is also no sup­port from the courts. This is in­dic­ated by the first judg­ments of the Heil­bronn and Han­over re­gional courts. But Schirp is un­deterred. “’Let­ter justice’ is prac­ticed in the civil courts. The claims are re­jec­ted be­cause the law says noth­ing about it. ”But the ques­tion is not asked, adds Schirps com­rade de Witt, whether a lack of com­pens­a­tion for com­pany clos­ings and pro­fes­sional bans is con­sti­tu­tional. That lies bey­ond the ho­ri­zon of civil law. At the same time as the con­sti­tu­tional com­plaint, the ini­ti­at­ors asked Fed­eral Health Min­is­ter Jens Spahn and nu­mer­ous health politi­cians to change the In­fec­tion Pro­tec­tion Act. Com­pens­a­tion is to be ex­pressly anchored there if busi­ness clos­ings and pro­fes­sional bans are imposed.

As the “Fo­cus” re­ports, the law­yers Wolfgang Schirp and Marc Lieb­scher want to bring a class ac­tion law­suit from 7,000 to 10,000 cli­ents who have suffered dam­age total­ing 1.5 bil­lion euros as a res­ult of Wirecard’s busi­ness con­duct. […] At­tor­ney Schirp as­sumes that EY would have re­cog­nized the im­pon­der­ables at an earlier point in time and could have pre­ven­ted greater dam­age by re­fus­ing the at­test­a­tion. For ex­ample, in the an­nual fin­an­cial state­ments between 2016 and 2018, trust bal­ances in Dubai, Singa­pore and the Phil­ip­pines amount­ing to more than one bil­lion euros were cer­ti­fied without hav­ing to ob­tain con­firm­a­tions from the account-​holding banks. This dis­reg­arded the “ba­sics of the audit­ing busi­ness”. The 2018 con­sol­id­ated fin­an­cial state­ments were ap­proved des­pite a sig­ni­fic­antly ex­ag­ger­ated present­a­tion of the cash bal­ance. […] In the most ex­treme case, one wants to hold the state ac­count­able, ex­plains Schirp. Fed­eral Fin­ance Min­is­ter Olaf Scholz and Bafin boss Fe­lix Hufeld have already ad­mit­ted a fail­ure of state supervision.

Al­most a month ago, Bloomberg re­por­ted that Berlin-​based law­yer Wolfgang Schirp had filed suit on be­half of Wir­e­card in­vestors against EY Ger­many after Wirecard’s headquar­ters were raided as part of a mar­ket ma­nip­u­la­tion probe. After the search on June 7, Schirp told Ger­man pa­per Han­dels­blatt that he also had ques­tions about de­tails con­tained in the KPMG spe­cial audit and in par­tic­u­lar, EY’s in­ab­il­ity to con­firm €1bn in trust as­sets in the 2018 accounts.”

Wirecard’s long-​time aud­itor, EY, faces mount­ing legal ac­tion as well. One class-​action law­suit, filed by the law firm of Wolfgang Schirp, took is­sue with EY audit­ing Wirecard’s al­leged equity cap­ital of €1.9 bil­lion (U.S. $2.1 bil­lion) “without ob­jec­tion, al­though no suf­fi­cient evid­ence was avail­able. This pro­ced­ure is very pe­cu­liar and, ac­cord­ing to our ana­lysis, does not cor­res­pond to the du­ti­ful pro­ced­ure of an aud­itor,” Wolfgang Schirp stated.

BaFin has come un­der dir­ect fire in con­nec­tion with the bank­ruptcy of P&R. The Ber­lin law firm Schirp & Part­ner is of the opin­ion that BaFin vi­ol­ated its of­fi­cial duty in con­nec­tion with the in­solv­ency of P&R and should com­pensate in­vestors. The claim for dam­ages has been run­ning since the end of last year. The ap­prox­im­ately 3.5 bil­lion euro bank­ruptcy of P&R is about the fact that BaFin hasn’t re­ques­ted any fur­ther in­form­a­tion bey­ond the purely formal ex­am­in­a­tion, such as the age of the con­tain­ers that the com­pany passed on to investors.

Ger­man law firm, Schirp & Part­ner, has said it will file class ac­tions against EY on be­half of both share­hold­ers and bond­hold­ers. Their ques­tions be­ing how EY was able to is­sue the last audit cer­ti­fic­ates for Wir­e­card without lim­it­a­tions and how the de­fi­cien­cies iden­ti­fied by KPMG re­mained hid­den from EY in the years prior. Schirp & Partner’s po­s­i­tion is that the audit cer­ti­fic­ates could prob­ably not have been is­sued without a breach of EY’s audit­ing ob­lig­a­tions and that EY has cer­ti­fied bank bal­ances of up to $EUR1.9 bil­lion without suf­fi­cient audit evid­ence, as the banks con­cerned deny the ex­ist­ence of the accounts.

In­vestor pro­tec­tion as­so­ci­ations and sev­eral large law firms an­nounced in the past few days that they would also want to ex­am­ine claims for dam­ages against EY. The ac­cus­a­tion: EY did not check Wirecard’s fig­ures and bal­ance sheets with suf­fi­cient ac­cur­acy and did not in­vest­ig­ate pub­lic doubts. The Ber­lin law firm Schirp & amp; Part­ner claims to have already filed a first law­suit against EY. The aud­it­ors had audited credit bal­ances in trust ac­counts of up to 1.9 bil­lion euros without any com­plaints, al­though there was in­suf­fi­cient evid­ence for this, the law firm ex­plained as jus­ti­fic­a­tion: “Ac­cord­ing to our ana­lysis, this does not cor­res­pond to the du­ti­ful ap­proach of an aud­itor.” With the law­suit In­vestors are to be com­pensated for pos­sible losses from trans­ac­tions with shares and bonds from Wir­e­card and cor­res­pond­ing de­riv­at­ives. A law­suit against the aud­itor also has a greater chance of suc­cess than against the ail­ing pay­ment ser­vice pro­vider him­self, ar­gued the law­yers at the be­gin­ning of last week.

Wirecard state liability? DPR flies – admission of guilt?, 28. Juni 2020 | read more

It’s lo­gical that (sic) here sev­eral law­yers sus­pect ap­proaches for a pos­sible state li­ab­il­ity. It looks like a lot of “time” with the ser­i­ous al­leg­a­tions in the room – and by sum­mer 2019 at the latest, these were un­mis­tak­able. We quote from a pub­lic­a­tion by Schirp und Part­ner, who an­nounced today that they were pre­par­ing class ac­tion law­suits for state li­ab­il­ity: “The me­dia re­ports are un­dis­puted: the Fed­eral Fin­an­cial Su­per­vis­ory Au­thor­ity (BaFin) saw an oc­ca­sion to in­vest­ig­ate Wir­e­card AG for bal­ance sheet ma­nip­u­la­tion since Feb­ru­ary 2019. In ac­cord­ance with the two-​tier Ger­man su­per­vis­ory law in this area, it passed the in­vest­ig­a­tion on to the Ger­man Audit Of­fice for Ac­count­ing (DPR). The DPR is an as­so­ci­ation un­der private law that is en­trus­ted with sov­er­eign tasks in this area. The DPR provided a single em­ployee for the Wir­e­card audit. This em­ployee did not suc­ceed in sub­mit­ting an audit re­port un­til the col­lapse of the Wir­e­card Group in June 2020, i.e. within a period of one and a half years. BaFin, for its part, pro­hib­ited Wir­e­card for a long time in 2019 by pro­hib­it­ing the Short selling of stocks (Short Selli ng) pro­tec­ted. This was des­pite the fact that very sub­stan­ti­ated al­leg­a­tions were made against the company’s ac­count­ing, es­pe­cially by the Fin­an­cial Times, but also by other me­dia. These al­leg­a­tions poin­ted to a fraud­u­lent in­fla­tion of the bal­ance sheet. Over­all, there was a blatant fail­ure of the su­per­vis­ory au­thor­ity. Fed­eral Fin­ance Min­is­ter Scholz ex­pressly ad­mit­ted this. BaFin boss Fe­lix Hufeld has already ad­mit­ted mis­takes. It is there­fore not un­ex­pec­ted that to­mor­row, Monday, the re­spons­ible min­is­tries will ter­min­ate the con­tract between the Fed­eral Re­pub­lic of Ger­many and the FREP, ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports. EU Vice Com­mis­sioner Valdis Dom­brovs­kis has also an­nounced an in­vest­ig­a­tion. It should be checked whether Ger­many has vi­ol­ated EU law be­cause of in­ad­equate su­per­vi­sion. Above all, the strange di­vi­sion of tasks between BaFin and FREP is at the cen­ter of cri­ti­cism from the EU.”

Berlin-​based law firm Schirp & Part­ner is tak­ing legal ac­tion against aud­itor EY be­cause it be­lieves it has more chance of re­cov­er­ing money lost by in­vestors via that route. “I am a little pess­im­istic about Wirecard’s fu­ture so if we sue them for three-​digit mil­lions of euros, we need some­body who is still strong and able to pay in two or three years from now when the legal cases are hope­fully won,” Schirp & Part­ner found­ing part­ner Wolfgang Schirp told S&P Global Mar­ket In­tel­li­gence. EY should have been able to read the “red flags” and look be­hind fig­ures presen­ted by Wir­e­card, he said.

After Wirecard’s headquar­ters was searched for evid­ence by pro­sec­utors on 7 June, Schirp told the Ger­man pa­per Handles­blatt that EY had not ques­tioned the lack of bal­ance con­firm­a­tions for €1bn in trust as­sets in its auditor’s re­port on the 2018 ac­counts. “EY’s at­test­a­tion should either have been re­stric­ted or at least sup­ple­men­ted,” he said.

P&R bank­ruptcy puts Bafin in a mess. The col­lapse of the P&R Group is one of the biggest in­vestor dis­asters in Ger­many. From the per­spect­ive of fed­eral polit­ics, the mat­ter re­mains a private matter.


KMI attorney Breier-​Struss on the topic of Publity, 20/2018 Seite 2

Some of pub­lity AG’s bond­hold­ers have can­celed their bonds. If the ter­min­a­tions are ef­fect­ive – which seems en­tirely plaus­ible – pub­lity AG would now be ob­liged to pay these bond­hold­ers the full nom­inal amount of their bonds.”

Handelsblatt about P&R, 22. Mai 2018

At P & amp; R there was un­for­tu­nately no real mon­it­or­ing un­til 2016 by law. For a long time, dir­ect in­vest­ment pro­viders did not even have to sub­mit a pro­spectus or is­sue warn­ings. In this way, P&R was able to op­er­ate for dec­ades without an au­thor­ity hav­ing to deal with the busi­ness model in more detail.”
