NEW YORK, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Harwood Feffer LLP (www.hfesq.com) is investigating potential claims against the board of directors of World Acceptance Corporation ("World Acceptance Corporation" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: WRLD), concerning whether the board has breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders.
On June 14, 2017, World Acceptance Corporation disclosed that it would not be able to timely file its Form 10-K due to an internal investigation related to its Mexico operations and "the legality under the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and certain local laws of certain payments related to loans, the maintenance of the Company's books and records associated with such payments, and the treatment of compensation matters for certain employees." According to the Company, it started the internal investigation in response to an anonymous letter from a whistleblower.
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.
