A 17-YEAR-OLD whizzkid forecast Spain’s largest ever bankruptcy after the world’s second biggest auditors had given the business the all-clear.
Spanish schoolboy Pepe Balta, now 18, predicted energy giant Abengoa’s collapse in his 18-page economics paper.
Auditors Deloitte & Touche spent €20 million over three years auditing Abengoa’s books, but Pepe accessed the company’s 2012 and 2013 accounts on their website.
“If it doesn’t act quickly, Abengoa has a strong risk of going into suspension of payments,” Pepe’s report read.
Pepe scored full marks for his school paper and is now studying at Barcelona’s University of Medicine.
