Wirecard AG shares soared higher Monday after the company said Saturday that its business activities are continuing despite its having filed for insolvency in a court in Munich, Germany.

At 0820 GMT, Wirecard shares traded 170% higher at EUR3.45, although shares are down 97% in the year to date.

The German fintech company said the decision of whether to open insolvency proceedings is still under review, adding that a provisional insolvency administrator should be appointed in due course.

Wirecard filed for insolvency on June 25, days after revealing that more than $2 billion in cash missing from its balance sheet probably doesn't exist.

Wirecard is the first company to file for insolvency in the DAX 30, Germany's premier stock-market index.

The company said it has discussed measures with authorities in the U.K. after the Financial Conduct Authority froze the operations of Wirecard Card Solutions, Wirecard's U.K. operation.
