Springleaf Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:LEAF) (“Springleaf”) and Springleaf Finance Corporation (“SFC”), each filed a Form 12b-25, Notification of Late Filing, with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with their Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 (the “Annual Reports”). Springleaf’s and SFC’s Annual Reports were due on March 31, 2013, and Springleaf and SFC extended the filing deadline 15 calendar days.
Springleaf and SFC have experienced a delay in completing the financial statements and related disclosures to be included in their Annual Reports. As a result of this delay, Springleaf and SFC are unable to file their Annual Reports by the prescribed filing date without unreasonable effort or expense.
Springleaf does not currently anticipate that its statements of operations, as will be reflected in its Annual Report when filed, will differ materially from its Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 statements of operations as disclosed in its press release dated March 11, 2014.
Springleaf’s and SFC’s inability to timely file their Annual Reports is a result of time needed to address certain accounting matters. We believe that these matters – accounting for structural attributes of certain securitizations and investment securities as embedded derivatives, and the accretion of the effective interest expense on certain indebtedness of the company – have been resolved. However, for the purposes of filing the Annual Reports, the recording of adjustments relating to these matters, together with recording to the appropriate periods certain previously recorded and disclosed out-of-period adjustments, are not yet complete.
In addition, Springleaf and SFC expect to report in the Form 10-K a material weakness in their internal control over financial reporting in connection with accounting for complex transactions. Springleaf and SFC are determining the steps necessary to remediate the material weakness.
Springleaf and SFC currently anticipate that they will be able to complete the work described above in time to file their Forms 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 within the 15 day extension provided by Rule 12b-25. However, there can be no assurance that Springleaf and SFC will be able to file their Forms 10-K within such 15 day period.
On January 3, 2014, Springleaf announced on Form 8-K that SFC intended to discontinue filing periodic reports. As a result of the above discussed matters, SFC currently intends to file an Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, and to discontinue filing periodic reports subsequent to the filing of such Form 10-K.
