As detailed below, the lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (I) that FirstCash had made more than 3,600 loans to over 1,000 active-duty members of the military and their families at usurious interest rates above 36% – and often exceeding 200% – in violation of the MLA and the Order; (II) that FirstCash had failed to implement the remedial measures imposed by the Order; (III) that FirstCash’s financial results were, in substantial part, the product of the Company’s violations of the MLA and the Order; and (IV) that as a result of the foregoing, FirstCash was exposed to a material undisclosed risk of legal, reputational and financial harm if the Company’s violations of the MLA and the Order were ever publicly disclosed.
On November 12, 2021, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas against FirstCash and Cash America West, Inc.
The CFPB alleged that the two companies violated the Military Lending Act ("MLA") by charging higher than the allowable 36% annual percentage rate on pawn loans to active-duty service members and their dependents. The CFPB also alleged that FirstCash violated a 2013 CFPB order against its predecessor company prohibiting MLA violations. The CFPB is seeking an injunction, redress for affected borrowers, and a civil money penalty.
On this news, shares of FirstCash stock fell 8%, on November 12, 2021 and closed at $78.64.
