Curo Canada Corp. and LendDirect Corp.

On March 25, 2024 (the "Petition Date"), CURO Group Holdings Corp. ("CURO") and certain of its affiliates (collectively, the "Debtors"), including CURO Canada Corp. and LendDirect Corp. (together, the "Canadian Debtors") commenced proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the "U.S. Court") by filing voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code (the "Chapter 11 Cases").

Among other things, the Initial Recognition Order granted an interim stay of proceedings in favour of the Canadian Debtors and each of their respective property, business and directors and officers.

iii. recognized certain orders granted by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the Chapter 11 Cases; and
iv. appointed FTI Consulting Canada Inc. as the Information Officer with respect to the CCAA Recognition Proceedings (in such capacity, the "Information Officer").
