NEW YORK, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Pomerantz Grossman Hufford Dahlstrom & Gross LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of World Acceptance Corp. ("World Acceptance" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: WRLD) (CUSIP: 981419104) who purchased World Acceptance common stock between January 30, 2013 and July 3, 2013 (the "Class Period"). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 237.
The investigation concerns whether World Acceptance and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On July 3, 2013, World Acceptance issued a press release stating that it was not able to complete its latest annual report for fiscal year ended March 31 because of problems related to its allowance loan losses.
