支付宝意欲投资德国银行软件公司Wirecard

据《德国周日画报》(Bild am Sonntag)报道,德国银行软件公司Wirecard AG目前正与支付宝方面进行洽谈,后者意欲收购Wirecard最高25%的股份。

《德国周日画报(Bild am Sonntag)》没有指明消息来源,但暗示未来这一股权收购比例有可能会进一步增加。

Wirecard发言人拒绝就此进行评论,但却简要证实该公司确实正与多家公司开展战略合作洽谈。

知情人士称,支付宝母公司蚂蚁金服与Wirecard协商的并不是一项投资。

2015年12月,两家公司已经建立合作关系,为前往欧洲 旅游 的中国游客提供手机支付服务。

报道称双方都有意达成协议。支付宝希望吸取到德国的技术,而Wirecard因公司股价一直承受做空者压力而希望招揽到重磅股东。

不久前,美的刚刚向德国工业机器人制造商Kuka提交收购要约,出价高达45亿欧元。若支付宝与Wirecard协议成行,该交易将成为中国投资德企的最新举动。

目前,支付宝在中国这个一世界第二大经济体中共拥有4亿活跃用户,占据中国手机支付市场的80%及在线市场的50%,其电子钱包系统广泛应用于零售业与在线交易。

Wirecard AG is negotiating with representatives of Alipay, a unit of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, about it taking a stake of up to 25 percent in the German banking software company, a newspaper reported on Sunday.

Without citing its sources, the Bild am Sonntag weekly said Wirecard was in confidential talks withAlipay about it taking a stake of up to 25 percent, and possibly more later.

A Wirecard spokeswoman declined to comment on the specifics of the report but confirmed that the company was in strategic talks with various partners, without elaborating.

A source familiar with the matter said Ant Financial, which operates the Alipay platform, was not talking to Wirecard about an investment.

In December, the two companies agreed to a deal to provide mobile phone payment services for Chinese tourists visiting Europe.

The newspaper said both sides had an interest in the deal: The Chinese want access to German expertise, while Wirecard would like to have a large shareholder, because its share price has come under pressure from short-sellers.

A deal would mark the latest Chinese investment in a German firm after a 4.5 billion euro takeover bid by China’s Midea for German industrial robot maker Kuka.

Alipay counts more than 400 million active users of its payment systems in China, representing an estimated 80 percent of the mobile payments market and 50 percent of the online market in the world’s second-largest economy.

Its electronic wallet system is widely used in both retail shops and for online transactions.
