Harwood Feffer LLP Announces Investigation of World Acceptance Corporation

17:38 EDT Wednesday, March 26, 2014

NEW YORK, March 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of World Acceptance Corporation ("World Acceptance" or the "Company") (WRLD), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.

On March 13, 2013, the Company disclosed that it is the target of an investigation by the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (the "Bureau").  The investigation by the Bureau concerns potential "unlawful acts or practices in connection with the marketing, offering, or extension of credit" in violation of federal law.  On this news, the price of Company stock plummeted nearly 20% to close at $78.25. 

Our investigation concerns whether the Company board of directors has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders, grossly mismanaged the Company, and/or committed abuses of control in connection with the foregoing.
