BERLIN (Reuters) – Germany’s Wirecard <WDIG.DE> rejected allegations of impropriety on Tuesday after the Financial Times newspaper published documents on the company’s accounting practices alleging an effort to inflate sales and profits.

“Today’s article by the Financial Times is a compilation of a number of false and misleading allegations… and which were already fully refuted before,” Wirecard said in a statement.

Shares in Wirecard sank more than 20% on Tuesday on the Financial Times’ report and bond prices slumped.
