About the Lawsuit

World Acceptance and certain of its executives are charged with issuing a series of materially false and misleading statements during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.

These false statements and omissions included, in part, that: (i) the Company's loan practices do not abide by the Consumer Financial Protection Act and/or the Truth in Lending Act; and (ii) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls.

On March 13, 2013, the Company disclosed that it is the target of an investigation by the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau concerning potential "unlawful acts or practices in connection with the marketing, offering, or extension of credit" in violation of federal law, causing the price of the Company's stock to plummet by almost 20%.
