GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2021--World Acceptance Corporation (NASDAQ: WRLD) today reported financial results for its fourth fiscal quarter and twelve months ended March 31, 2021.

Our fiscal fourth quarter and year ended March 31, 2021, was significantly impacted by the pandemic and resulting federal stimulus. The federal stimulus decreased demand for our loan product, driving lower originations as well as increased payments and payoffs from our existing customers. This resulted in a reduction in loans outstanding as well as historically low delinquency. In light of this, we focused on reducing our operating expenses during the year and expect this reduction in G&A expenses to continue into future periods.

This compares to a 7.3% increase for year ended March 31, 2020.
