Baden-Baden, September 17, 2020: GRENKE AG, a global financing partner for small and medium-sized enterprises, has convened a task force to deal with the detailed rebuttal of the accusations made against the Company by Viceroy Research.

On the basis of this work, Antje Leminsky, Chair of the Board of Directors of GRENKE AG, and Sebastian Hirsch, member of the Board of Directors, together with the company founder and Deputy Chair of the Supervisory Board, Wolfgang Grenke, and the Chair of the Supervisory Board, Prof. Dr. Ernst-Moritz Lipp, will comment on all of the topics in writing and in the context of an investor and analyst call tomorrow, Friday afternoon: accusations of fraud, falsification of financial statements and money laundering as well as criticism of the business model and governance.
