World Acceptance Is Under Investigation by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

Shares of World Acceptance fell $19.07, or nearly 20%, to close at $78.25 on March 13, 2014, following a disclosure by the company that it is the target of an investigation by the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (the "Agency").  According the disclosure, World Acceptance received a Civil Investigative Demand from the Agency related to potential "unlawful acts or practices in connection with the marketing, offering, or extension of credit" in violation of federal law.  

In light of this news, Robbins Arroyo LLP is investigating whether World Acceptance's board of directors breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by failing to implement adequate internal controls to ensure that World Acceptance complied with federal lending requirements.
