ABSTRACT
AmeriCredit Corp.'s earnings-report postponement on Wednesday caused some investors to show some resentment from the stock when the market reopened Thursday. The auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, had raised doubts last week about the $7.5 billion-asset lender's method of accounting for certain interest rates that were used to minimize the interest rate risk of its loan securitizations. AmeriCredit cut its work force by 20% and its branch network by 60% in February, and in April it fired its chief executive officer and its chief operating officer.
