29 Feb, 2016, 17:36 ET from Hertz Global Holdings, Inc.

ESTERO, Fla., Feb. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) ("HGH" or the "Company") today reported fourth quarter 2015 GAAP net income of $70 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $234 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, during the fourth quarter of 2014. The Company also reported adjusted net income for the fourth quarter 2015 of $22 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with an adjusted net loss of $101 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the same period last year. Total revenues for the fourth quarter 2015 were $2.41 billion, a 6% decline versus the fourth quarter of 2014. Adjusted corporate EBITDA for the 2015 fourth quarter was $266 million, compared to $76 million in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Foreign currency exchange rates had an unfavorable impact on Hertz Global Holdings' fourth quarter 2015 results as compared to the prior year period. The unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rates to total revenue in the quarter was approximately $75 million and the unfavorable impact to net income for the period was approximately $6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share.

For the full-year 2015, Hertz Global Holdings reported GAAP net income of $273 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, versus a loss of $82 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the full year 2014. Adjusted net income for 2015 was $360 million, or $0.79 per diluted share, compared with an adjusted net loss of $254 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, for 2014. Total revenues for 2015 of $10.5 billion represent a 5% year over year decline. Full year 2015 adjusted corporate EBITDA of $1,493 million represents a 12% improvement versus full year 2014.

Hertz Global Holdings ended 2015 with approximately $2.2 billion of corporate liquidity, which is its highest level since 2011.  As a result, the company reduced its year-end leverage ratio, which is defined as net corporate debt to adjusted corporate EBITDA, to 3.7 times at Dec. 31, 2015 versus 4.4 times at Sept. 30, 2015.

"By fundamentally improving our fleet management and reducing costs throughout the business, we delivered on our expected outcome for the fourth quarter and the full year, despite a highly competitive pricing environment," said John Tague, president and chief executive officer. "We are encouraged by rising customer satisfaction across our major brands, which reached record levels in the third and fourth quarters of 2015, as well as the pace of improvement in our cost structure. 

"Looking ahead, we continue to see soft pricing in the U.S. rental car market in the first quarter 2016 as well as continued weakness in upstream oil and gas markets affecting equipment rental, both of which are reflected in our outlook for 2016," Tague added.  "In this environment, we will continue to focus internally on improving cost and quality as part of our commitment to our three-to-five year margin improvement plan."

In the fourth quarter, effective fleet management and a focus and investment in customer service programs resulted in improvements in worldwide customer satisfaction for Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty.  Customer satisfaction levels reached record levels for these brands in the fourth quarter. For Hertz Global Holdings overall, customer satisfaction in the fourth quarter rose 4 points and 5 points in the U.S. and International segments, respectively.

Effective fleet management also drove a 3 percentage point year-over-year increase in Worldwide Car Rental fleet efficiency to 78%. In the U.S., Car Rental fleet efficiency rose to 79%, an increase of 4 percentage points versus the fourth quarter of 2014, driven by reduced out-of-service levels and better utilization or matching of demand to cars available to rent.  In the International segment, Car Rental fleet efficiency was 73%, a decrease of 1 percentage point from the fourth quarter of 2014.

Worldwide Revenue per Available Car Day (RACD) increased by 1%, as the improvement in fleet efficiency mitigated a 3% decrease in Total Revenue per Transaction Day (RPD) versus the fourth quarter of 2014.  In the U.S., RACD was unchanged as higher fleet efficiency offset a 5% decrease in RPD. The International region RACD increased 2%, as a 3% increase in Total RPD was slightly offset by a reduction in fleet efficiency.

Effective fleet management resulted in improved fleet condition, which contributed to the Company's lower out-of-service levels and lower maintenance costs during the fourth quarter versus the prior year.  This was accomplished while keeping 2015 fleet cost slightly below 2014 levels.

As part of its ongoing cost reduction program, Hertz Global Holdings achieved savings of approximately $75 million in the fourth quarter. For the full-year, the Company realized cost savings of approximately $230 million, exceeding its 2015 goal. In 2016, the Company expects to achieve an additional $350 million in cost savings.

Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation (HERC) continued to diversify its business, achieving a 42% increase in revenue from new accounts in North America on a constant currency basis in the fourth quarter. Hertz Global Holdings continues to expect that the planned separation of HERC as a public company is on track for mid-2016.

Fourth-quarter 2015 U.S. Car Rental revenues totaled $1,413 million, a decrease of 5% from the fourth quarter of 2014. For the quarter, the Company reported flat transaction days and a 5% decline in Total RPD.  The decline in pricing was the result of competitive pricing in airport rentals and negative off airport mix shift. Growth in leisure rental transaction days was offset by softness in corporate volumes and off airport location closures. Adjusted corporate EBITDA for the fourth quarter was $72 million, a $166 million improvement versus the same period last year, primarily driven by effective fleet management, improved productivity and strong cost controls.

Fourth-quarter 2015 Worldwide Equipment Rental revenues totaled $386 million, a decrease of 7% from the fourth quarter of 2014. Excluding the unfavorable foreign currency impact of $10 million, revenue decreased 5% driven by continued pressure in upstream oil and gas related markets and the Oct. 30, 2015, sale of Hertz Equipment Rental operations in France and Spain. Adjusted corporate EBITDA for the Worldwide Equipment Rental segment for the fourth quarter of 2015 was $166 million, a $12 million decrease versus the fourth quarter of 2014.

(China Auto Rental) and proceeds from the sale of HERC's businesses in France and Spain. For the full year, under the Company's previously announced $1 billion authorized share repurchase program, Hertz Global Holdings repurchased approximately 37 million shares at a total cost of approximately $605 million, including commissions.

For the full-year 2016, the Company has revised its previously issued preliminary 2016 adjusted corporate EBITDA guidance for both Consolidated Hertz Global Holdings and the Worldwide Equipment Rental segment. For Hertz Global Holdings, the guidance has been revised from a range of $1.7 billion to $1.8 billion to a range of $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion, reflecting lower U.S. RAC Total Revenue growth in the second half of the fourth quarter 2015 and the resulting impact to the first quarter of 2016, as well as continued pressure in the upstream oil and gas business in the Worldwide Equipment Rental segment. As a result, Worldwide Equipment Rental segment preliminary 2016 adjusted corporate EBITDA guidance has been revised from a range of $625 million to $675 million to a range of $600 million to $650 million.  In addition, the Company lowered its U.S. RAC revenue guidance from a range of 2.5% to 3.5% to a range of 1.5% to 2.5%.  Guidance for U.S. RAC capacity growth has been revised from a range of (0.5%) to 0.5% to a range of (3.0%) to (2.0%).  Non-fleet capex spending guidance has also been revised from a range of $250 million to $275 million to a range of $200 million to $225 million.  The guidance for U.S. RAC net depreciation per unit per month is unchanged.

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION

The GAAP and Non-GAAP profitability metrics for Hertz Global Holdings' operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation, are materially the same as those for Hertz Global Holdings.

(1) Adjusted pre-tax income, Adjusted pre-tax margin, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share, total revenue per transaction day, revenue per available car day and net depreciation per unit per month are non-GAAP measures. See the accompanying Supplemental Schedules and Definitions for the reconciliations and definitions for each of these non-GAAP measures and the reason the Company's management believes that these measures provide useful information to investors.

(2) Because of the forward-looking nature of the Company's Adjusted Corporate EBITDA forecast, specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile a pre-tax income forecast are not available. The Company believes that there is a degree of volatility with respect to certain of the Company's GAAP measures, primarily related to fair value accounting for its financial assets (which includes the Company's derivative financial instruments), its income tax reporting and certain adjustments made to arrive at the relevant non-GAAP measures, which preclude the Company from providing accurate forecast of GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations. Based on the above, the Company believes that providing estimates of the amounts that would be required to reconcile the range of the non-GAAP Adjusted Corporate EBITDA would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors for the reasons identified above.

EARNINGS WEBCAST INFORMATION

Hertz Global Holdings' fourth-quarter 2015 earnings webcast will be held on March 1, 2016, at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Eastern. The press release and related supplemental schedules containing the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures will be available on our website, IR.Hertz.com.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND KEY METRICS - DEFINITIONS AND USE

Hertz Global Holdings is the top-level holding company and The Hertz Corporation is Hertz Global Holding's primary operating company (together, the Company). The term "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Definitions of non-GAAP measures are set forth below. Also set forth below is a summary of the reasons why management of the Company believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in the press release provide useful information regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations and additional purposes, if any, for which management of the Company utilizes the non-GAAP measures.

Adjusted Pre-Tax Income (Loss) and Adjusted Pre-tax Margin

Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is calculated as income before income taxes plus certain non-cash acquisition accounting charges, debt-related charges relating to the amortization and write-off of debt financing costs and debt discounts and certain one-time charges and non-operational items. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is important to management because it allows management to assess operational performance of our business, exclusive of the items mentioned above. It also allows management to assess the performance of the entire business on the same basis as the segment measure of profitability. Management believes it is important to investors for the same reasons it is important to management and because it allows them to assess the operational performance of the Company on the same basis that management uses internally. When evaluating the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider adjusted pre-tax income (loss) in isolation of, or as a substitute for, measures of the Company's financial performance, such as net income (loss) or income (loss) before income taxes. Adjusted pre-tax margin is adjusted pre-tax income (loss) divided by total revenues.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Margin

Adjusted net income is calculated as adjusted pre-tax income less a provision for income taxes derived utilizing a combined statutory rate of 37%. The combined statutory rate is management's estimate of our long-term tax rate. Adjusted net income is important to management and investors because it represents our operational performance exclusive of the effects of purchase accounting, debt-related charges, one-time charges and items that are not operational in nature or comparable to those of our competitors. Adjusted net income margin is adjusted net income divided by total revenues.

Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share

Adjusted net income per diluted share is calculated as adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Adjusted net income per diluted share is important to management and investors because it represents a measure of our operational performance exclusive of the effects of purchase accounting adjustments, debt-related charges, one-time charges and items that are not operational in nature or comparable to those of our competitors.

Available Car Days

Available Car Days is calculated as average fleet multiplied by the number of days in a period. Average fleet used to calculate available car days in our U.S. Car Rental segment excludes Advantage sublease and Hertz 24/7 vehicles as these vehicles do not have associated transaction days.

Average Fleet

Average Fleet is determined using a simple average of the number of vehicles owned by the Company at the beginning and end of a given period. Among other things, average fleet is used to calculate our fleet efficiency which represents the portion of the Company's fleet that is being utilized to generate revenue.

Corporate Restricted Cash (used in the calculation of Net Corporate Debt)

Total restricted cash includes cash and cash equivalents that are not readily available for our normal disbursements. Total restricted cash and equivalents are restricted for the purchase of revenue earning vehicles and other specified uses under our Fleet Debt facilities, our like-kind exchange programs and to satisfy certain of our self-insurance regulatory reserve requirements. Corporate restricted cash is calculated as total restricted cash less restricted cash associated with fleet debt.

Dollar Utilization

Dollar utilization means revenue derived from the rental of equipment divided by the original cost of the equipment including additional capitalized refurbishment costs (with the basis of refurbished assets at the refurbishment date).

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Gross EBITDA"), Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin

Gross EBITDA is defined as net income before net interest expense, income taxes and depreciation (which includes revenue earning equipment lease charges) and amortization. Corporate EBITDA, as presented herein, represents Gross EBITDA as adjusted for car rental fleet interest, car rental fleet depreciation and car rental debt-related charges. Adjusted Corporate EBITDA, as presented herein, represents Corporate EBITDA as adjusted for certain other items, as described in more detail in the accompanying schedules.

Management uses Gross EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA as operating performance and liquidity metrics for internal monitoring and planning purposes, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and monthly operating reviews, as well as to facilitate analysis of investment decisions, profitability and performance trends. Further, Gross EBITDA enables management and investors to isolate the effects on profitability of operating metrics such as revenue, operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, which enables management and investors to evaluate our business segments that are financed differently and have different depreciation characteristics and compare our performance against companies with different capital structures and depreciation policies. We also present Adjusted Corporate EBITDA as a supplemental measure because such information is utilized in the calculation of financial covenants under the Company's senior credit facilities and in the determination of certain executive compensation.

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin is calculated as the ratio of Adjusted Corporate EBITDA to total revenues and is used by the Compensation Committee to determine certain executive compensation, primarily in the form of PSUs.

Gross EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin are not recognized measurements under U.S. GAAP. When evaluating our operating performance or liquidity, investors should not consider Gross EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA  in isolation of, or as a substitute for, measures of our financial performance and liquidity as determined in accordance with GAAP, such as net income, operating income or net cash provided by operating activities.

Equipment Rental and Rental Related Revenue

Equipment rental and rental related revenue consists of all revenue, net of discounts, associated with the rental of equipment including charges for delivery, loss damage waivers and fueling, but excluding revenue arising from the sale of equipment, parts and supplies and certain other ancillary revenue. Rental and rental related revenue is adjusted in all periods to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency. Our management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends. This statistic is important to our management and to investors as it reflects time and mileage, ancillary charges for equipment on rent, and is comparable with the reporting of other industry participants.

Fleet Efficiency

Fleet efficiency is calculated by dividing total transaction days by the available car days. Average fleet used to calculate fleet efficiency in our U.S. Car Rental segment excludes Advantage sublease and Hertz 24/7 vehicles as these vehicles do not have associated transaction days.

Fleet Growth

U.S. and International car rental fleet growth is defined as car rental fleet capital expenditures, net of proceeds from disposals, plus car rental fleet depreciation and net car rental fleet financing which includes borrowings, repayments and the change in fleet restricted cash. Worldwide equipment rental fleet growth is defined as worldwide equipment rental fleet expenditures, net of proceeds from disposals, plus depreciation.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities, excluding depreciation of revenue earning equipment, net of car rental and equipment rental fleet growth and property and equipment net expenditures. Free cash flow is important to management and investors as it represents the cash available for acquisitions and the reduction of corporate debt.

Net Corporate Debt

Net corporate debt is calculated as total debt excluding fleet debt less cash and equivalents and corporate restricted cash. Corporate debt consists of our Senior Term Facility; Senior ABL Facility; Senior Notes; Promissory Notes; Convertible Senior Notes; and certain other indebtedness of our domestic and foreign subsidiaries.

Net corporate debt is important to management and investors as it helps measure our leverage. Net corporate debt also assists in the evaluation of our ability to service our non-fleet-related debt without reference to the expense associated with the fleet debt, which is collateralized by assets not available to lenders under the non-fleet debt facilities.

Net Depreciation Per Unit Per Month

Net depreciation per unit per month is calculated by dividing depreciation of revenue earning equipment and lease charges, net by the average fleet in each period and then dividing by the number of months in the period reported with all periods adjusted to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency. Our management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency is useful in analyzing underlying trends. Average fleet used to calculate net depreciation per unit per month in our U.S. Car Rental segment includes Advantage sublease and Hertz 24/7 vehicles as these vehicles have associated lease charges. Net depreciation per unit per month represents the amount of average depreciation expense and lease charges, net per vehicle per month.

Restricted Cash Associated with Fleet Debt (used in the calculation of Net Fleet Debt and Corporate Restricted Cash)

Restricted cash associated with fleet debt is restricted for the purchase of revenue earning vehicles and other specified uses under our Fleet Debt facilities and our car rental like-kind exchange program.

Revenue Per Available Car Day ("RACD")

Revenue per available car day is calculated as total revenues less revenue from fleet subleases and ancillary revenue associated with retail car sales divided by available car days, with all periods adjusted to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency. Our management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends. This metric is important to our management and investors as it represents a measurement of the changes in underlying pricing in the car rental business and encompasses the elements in car rental pricing that management has the ability to control and provides a measure of revenue production relative to overall capacity.

Same Store Revenue Growth/Decline

Same store revenue growth is calculated as the year-over-year change in revenue for locations that are open at the end of the period reported and have been operating under our direction for more than twelve months. The same-store revenue amounts are adjusted in all periods to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency.

Our management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends.

Time Utilization

Time utilization means the percentage of time an equipment unit is on-rent during a given period.

Total Net Debt

Total net debt is calculated as total debt less total cash and cash equivalents and total restricted cash. This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure our gross leverage.

Total RPD

Total RPD is calculated as total revenue less ancillary revenue associated with retail car sales, divided by the total number of transaction days, with all periods adjusted to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency. Our management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends. This metric is important to our management and investors as it represents a measurement of the changes in underlying pricing in the car rental business and encompasses the elements in car rental pricing that management has the ability to control.

Transaction Days

Transaction days represent the total number of 24-hour periods, with any partial period counted as one transaction day, that vehicles were on rent (the period between when a rental contract is opened and closed) in a given period. Thus, it is possible for a vehicle to attain more than one transaction day in a 24-hour period. Late in the third quarter of 2015, the Company fully integrated the Dollar Thrifty and Hertz counter systems and, as a result, aligned the transaction day calculation in the Hertz system. As a result of this alignment, Hertz determined that there was an impact to the calculation. Hertz expects that transaction days for the U.S. Car Rental segment will increase by approximately 1%, prospectively relative to the historic calculation.
