That means DAX zombie.
For the first time, a DAX company, Wirecard, has gone broke but won’t be kicked out of the index until September.
Wirecard has filed for insolvency, just days after a $2 billion accounting scandal at the company burst into the open, crashing its stock and leading to the arrest of its former chief executive.
The digital payments company said in a statement Thursday it had opened legal proceedings in Munich “due to impending insolvency and over-indebtedness.” Share
