November 6, 2022
World Acceptance Corporation (WRLD), a subprime installment lender, revealed that on October 25, 2022 it “became aware” it was no longer in compliance with its revolving credit agreement for the quarter ending September 30, 2022.

“On October 26, 2022, the Company entered into a waiver letter with its lenders named in the revolving credit agreement, pursuant to which its lenders agreed to waive the Existing Non-Compliance. The Company has not received a notice of default, a notice of termination or declaration of acceleration of amounts due with respect to the outstanding balance of the loan from the lenders.”
