NAPLES, Fla., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) (with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "we") reported record fourth quarter 2013 worldwide revenues of $2.6 billion, an increase of 10.2% year-over-year.  U.S. car rental revenues for the quarter increased 14.1% year-over-year to $1,476.3 million, primarily due to Dollar Thrifty, which was acquired on November 19, 2012, partially offset by the December 2012 divestiture of Advantage.  International car rental revenues for the quarter increased 5.8% year-over-year to $544.2 million.  Revenues from worldwide equipment rental for the fourth quarter were $400.9 million, up 4.0% year-over-year. All other operations revenues for the quarter increased 6.8% year-over-year to $134.9 million

Worldwide adjusted pre-tax income(1) was $186.3 million, versus adjusted pre-tax income of $210.7 million in the same period in 2012, and pre-tax income, on a GAAP basis, was $62.3 million versus a pre-tax loss of $43.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Fourth quarter 2013 adjusted net income(1) was $121.1 million, versus $139.1 million in the same period of 2012, resulting in adjusted diluted earnings per share(1) for the quarter of 2013 of $0.26, compared to $0.33 for the fourth quarter of 2012.  On a GAAP basis, fourth quarter 2013 net loss attributable to Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. and Subsidiaries' common stockholders was $0.6 million or $0.00 per share on a diluted basis, compared to a loss of $36.8 million or $0.09 per share on a diluted basis for the fourth quarter of 2012.

"In a difficult fourth quarter, we achieved an adjusted earnings per share of $0.26 despite an estimated $0.12 impact of lower than expected pricing and higher expenses related to carrying extra fleet," said Mark P. Frissora, the Company's chairman and chief executive officer. "However, 2013 was another record-setting year for Hertz on both revenues and profits.  We achieved a fourth consecutive year of 20%+ adjusted pre-tax income and EPS growth in 2013, on revenues which increased 19.4%," Frissora added.

(a) We had a change in policy in Q1 2013 with respect to settling the conversion of our 5.25% Convertible Senior Notes due June 2014. For 2013, this policy change results in an adjustment to the numerator (net income) of our earnings per share computation. The numerator is adjusted to add back the after-tax amount of interest recognized in the period associated with the Convertible Senior Notes on the same pro rata basis.


(b) During the fourth quarter of 2013, management identified errors and revised previously issued financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and the related interim periods. We have concluded that these out of period errors to previously issued financial statements are not material. These out of period errors and revised financial statements will be more fully described in our Form 10-K.


(c) In 2012, primarily represents expenses related to the withdrawal from a multiemployer pension plan of $23.2 million, litigation accrual of $14.0 million and expenses associated with the impact of Hurricane Sandy of $7.9 million.


Net cash provided by operating activities in 2013 was $3,589.7 million, compared to $2,709.8 million in 2012, an increase of $879.9 million.  Free cash flow(1) for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $448.7 million an increase of $293.6 million compared to the same period last year. The year-over-year improvement in free cash flow was primarily driven by earnings growth and improved working capital that more than offset a $60.2 million increase in net investments. The increase in year-over-year net investments related to car rental fleet growth and non-fleet capital expenditures offset by a reduction in equipment rental fleet growth. The Company ended the fourth quarter of 2013 with total debt of $16.3 billion and net corporate debt(1) of $6.0 billion, compared with total debt of $15.4 billion and net corporate debt of $5.9 billion as of December 31, 2012.

In November 2013, we issued 4.375% Senior Notes due 2019 in an aggregate original principal amount of €425.0 million (the equivalent of $584.3 million as of December 31, 2013).  We paid premiums of $28.7 million to redeem all of the then-outstanding 8.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2015 with an aggregate original principal amount of €400.0 million (the equivalent of $550.0 million as of December 31, 2013). 

Effective in the third quarter of 2013, we changed our segment reporting to the following new segments: U.S. car rental (which includes our U.S. airport and off-airport businesses), international car rental (which includes Canada, Europe, Latin and South America, Caribbean, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand), worldwide equipment rental and all other operations (which includes Donlen together with other business activities, such as our third party claim management services).  Previously, U.S. car rental, international car rental and Donlen were included in our worldwide car rental segment. Our fourth quarter results present our new segments with the comparable 2012 period revised as well.

U.S. CAR RENTAL

U.S. car rental revenues were $1,476.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 14.1% from the prior year period. The Company's transaction days for the quarter increased 16.1% over the fourth quarter of 2012 largely due to the acquisition of Dollar Thrifty, partially offset by the Advantage divestiture. U.S. off-airport total revenues for the fourth quarter increased 9.8% year-over-year.  

U.S. car rental adjusted pre-tax income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $169.7 million, a decrease of $47.9 million from $217.6 million in the prior year period.  U.S. car rental achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin(1) of 11.5% for the quarter, versus 16.8% in the prior year period. On a GAAP basis, U.S. car rental pre-tax income was $144.2 million, an increase of $45.3 million from $98.9 million in the prior year period.

The U.S. average number of Company-operated vehicles for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 472,200, an increase of 22.4% over the prior year period, largely due to the acquisition of Dollar Thrifty.

INTERNATIONAL CAR RENTAL

International car rental revenues were $544.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 5.8% from the prior year period. Transaction days for the quarter increased 5.5% over the fourth quarter of 2012 largely due to strong performance across Europe.

International car rental adjusted pre-tax income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $15.2 million, an improvement of $26.2 million from a loss of $11.0 million in the prior year period, and Corporate EBITDA(1) for the period was $30.7, an increase of $31.1 million from the prior year period.  The result was driven by stronger volumes and pricing, lower net depreciation per vehicle and lower interest expense as part of refinancing the 8.50% Senior Secured Notes.  On a GAAP basis, the international car rental pre-tax loss was $34.5 million compared to $26.6 million in the prior year period.

The average number of Company-operated vehicles in the international car rental segment for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 154,300, an increase of 3.6% over the prior year period.

WORLDWIDE EQUIPMENT RENTAL

Worldwide equipment rental revenues were $400.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, a 4.0% increase from the prior year period. The primary drivers of the increase were stronger equipment rental volumes, up 9.8%, and a 2.4% increase in pricing. Volume increased as the industry continued its recovery in North America. The recovery has been led by continued strength in oil and gas, industrial and specialty markets, and the early beginnings of the construction recovery.

Adjusted pre-tax income for worldwide equipment rental for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $85.4 million, an improvement of $3.0 million from $82.4 million in the prior year period, primarily attributable to the effects of increased volume, improved pricing and cost management initiatives including improved time and dollar utilization.  Worldwide equipment rental achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin of 21.3% and a Corporate EBITDA margin(1) of 44.8% for the quarter.  On a GAAP basis, worldwide equipment rental achieved pre-tax income of $63.7 million and pre-tax margin of 15.9% for the quarter compared to pre-tax income of $51.5 million and pre-tax margin of 13.4% in the prior year period.

ALL OTHER OPERATIONS

Our all other operations segment revenues were $134.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2013, an increase of 6.8% from the prior year period, primarily due to increased volumes in our Donlen operations.

Adjusted pre-tax income for our all other operations segment for the fourth quarter 2013 was $14.8 million which achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin of 11.0%.  On a GAAP basis, pre-tax income was $8.8 million for the fourth quarter 2013 compared to $8.5 million in the prior year period, and pre-tax margin was 6.5% for the fourth quarter 2013 compared to 6.7% in the prior year period.

FULL YEAR RESULTS

Worldwide revenue for the full year 2013 was $10.8 billion, an increase of 19.4% over the prior year.  U.S. car rental revenues for the year increased 29.2% to $6.3 billion.  International car rental revenues for the year increased 5.0% (a 4.7% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) to $2.4 billion.  Revenues for worldwide equipment rental for the year increased 11.0% (an 11.5% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) to $1.5 billion

Adjusted pre-tax income for the year was $1,153.2 million, an increase of 29.2% from prior year amount of $892.3 million and pre-tax income, on a GAAP basis, was $663.1 million, an increase of 50.2%, versus $441.4 million in 2012.  Corporate EBITDA for the year was $2,043.7 million, an increase of 25.6% from prior year amount of $1,626.6 million.

Full year 2013 adjusted net income was $749.6 million, an increase of 27.3% from 2012, resulting in adjusted diluted earnings per share for the year of $1.63, compared to $1.31 in the prior year.  Full year 2013 net income, on a GAAP basis, was $346.2 million or $0.76 per share on a diluted basis, compared with $238.6 million, or $0.53 per share on a diluted basis, for 2012.

Hertz forecasts full year 2014 revenues in the range of $11,400 million - $11,700 million based on U.S. and International RAC revenue growth forecasted between 6% and 8% and 5% to 7%, respectively.  Dollar Thrifty revenue and cost synergies for 2014 are estimated at $120 million and $100 million, respectively.  The Company forecasts a diluted share count of 465 million shares in 2014.

Mark Frissora, commenting on the Company's outlook, said, "We believe Hertz will achieve its fifth consecutive year of double-digit adjusted pre-tax income and EPS growth in 2014.   We are forecasting Q1 adjusted earnings per share of between $0.07 and $0.09, reflecting the impact, estimated at $0.07 to $0.08 adjusted earnings per share this quarter, of excess U.S. rental car fleet, although we expect fleet levels to be aligned with transaction day growth by the end of this quarter.  In January and February, we were pleased with higher-than-anticipated Hertz U.S. RAC airport demand and pricing, attributable to two increases we instituted early last December, despite carrying extra fleet. Our 2014 guidance range reflects a balanced, current assessment of residual value risks, pricing and demand sensitivities.  We intend to close the guidance range as the year unfolds," Frissora concluded.

In a separate press release issued today, the Company announced that its Board of Directors has approved plans to separate the Hertz car and equipment rental businesses into two independent, publicly traded companies.  Additionally, the Board approved a new share repurchase program totaling $1 billion which replaces the existing program.

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION

The Company's operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation ("Hertz"), posted the same revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 as the Company.  Hertz's fourth quarter 2013 pre-tax income was $65.2 million versus the Company's pre-tax income of $62.3 million.  The difference between Hertz's and the Company's results is primarily due to additional interest expense recognized by the Company on its 5.25% Convertible Senior Notes issued in May and September 2009.



(1)

Adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted pre-tax margin, Corporate EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, free cash flow and net corporate debt are non-GAAP measures.  See the accompanying Tables and Exhibit 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 regarding the Company's financial condition and results of operations.



(2)

Management believes that Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are useful in measuring the comparable results of the Company period-over-period.  The GAAP measures most directly comparable to Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share are (i) pre-tax income and cash flows from operating activities, (ii) pre-tax income, (iii) net income, and (iv) diluted earnings per share, respectively.  Because of the forward-looking nature of the Company's forecasted Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile forecasted cash flows from operating activities, pre-tax income and net income 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 forecasted 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 Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share to forecasted cash flows from operating activities, pre-tax income, net income and diluted earnings per share would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors for the reasons identified above.

These statements are based on certain assumptions that the Companies have made in light of industry experience as well as perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors that the Companies believe are appropriate in these circumstances. We believe these judgments are reasonable, but you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results, and our actual results could differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements due to a variety of important factors, both positive and negative.

(a)  We had a change in policy in Q1 2013 with respect to settling the conversion of our 5.25% Convertible Senior Notes due June 2014.  For 2013, this policy change results in an adjustment to the numerator (net income) of our earnings per share computation.  The numerator is adjusted to add back the after-tax amount of interest recognized in the period associated with the Convertible Senior Notes on the same pro rata basis.











Note: During the fourth quarter of 2013, management identified certain errors and revised previously issued financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and the related interim periods. These out of period errors totaling $47.9 million, of which $34.7 million ($21.0 million, net of tax) related to vendor incentives (reduced pre-tax income by $12.9 million in 2011 and $2.4 million in 2012) which had been accounted for as a reduction of marketing expenses instead of reducing the cost of revenue earning equipment, charges related to certain assets and allowances for doubtful accounts in Brazil (reduced pre-tax income by $4.4 million in 2010, $6.2 million in 2011 and $3.6 million in 2012), as well as other immaterial errors (decreased pre-tax income by $2.4 million in 2010 and $3.2 million in 2012, and  increased pre-tax income by $ 0.4 million in 2011). We have concluded that these errors to previously issued financial statements are not material. These errors and revised financial statements will be more fully described in our Form 10-K.

Exhibit 1

Non-GAAP Measures: Definitions and Use/Importance

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

Definitions of non-GAAP measures utilized in Hertz Holdings' March 18, 2014 Press Release are set forth below. Also set forth below is a summary of the reasons why management of Hertz Holdings and Hertz believes that the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in the Press Release provide useful information regarding Hertz Holdings' and Hertz's financial condition and results of operations and additional purposes, if any, for which management of Hertz Holdings and Hertz utilize the non-GAAP measures.

1. Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA") and Corporate EBITDA

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 EBITDA as adjusted for car rental fleet interest, car rental fleet depreciation and certain other items, as described in more detail in the accompanying tables.

Management uses EBITDA and 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, 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 two 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 Corporate EBITDA as a supplemental measure because such information is utilized in the calculation of financial covenants under Hertz's senior credit facilities.

EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA are not recognized measurements under GAAP. When evaluating our operating performance or liquidity, investors should not consider EBITDA and 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.

2. Adjusted Pre-Tax Income

Adjusted pre-tax income is calculated as income before income taxes plus non-cash purchase accounting charges, debt-related charges relating to the amortization of debt financing costs and debt discounts and certain one-time charges and non-operational items. Adjusted pre-tax income 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 that 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.

3. Adjusted Net Income

Adjusted net income is calculated as adjusted pre-tax income less a provision for income taxes derived utilizing a normalized income tax rate (35% in 2013 and 34% in 2012) and noncontrolling interest. The normalized income tax 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.

4. Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share

Adjusted diluted earnings per share is calculated as adjusted net income divided by, for the three months ended December 31, 2013, 464.3 million which represents the weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the period, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, 463.9 million which represents the weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the period and for the three months ended December 31, 2012, 421.1 million which represents the weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the period, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012, 448.2 million represents the weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the period. Adjusted diluted earnings per 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.

5. Transaction Days

Transaction days represent the total number of days that vehicles were on rent in a given period.

6. Car Rental Revenue, Total RPD and Total Rental Revenue Per Transaction

Car rental revenue consists of all revenue (including U.S. and International), net of discounts, associated with the rental of cars including charges for optional insurance products, revenue from fleet subleases, and licensee transactions.  But for purposes of calculating total revenue per transaction day, or "Total RPD," we exclude revenue from fleet subleases. Total RPD is calculated as total revenue less revenue from fleet subleases, 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 statistic is important to our management and investors as it represents the best 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.   

7. 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 is utilized in the measurement of rental revenue generated per dollar invested in fleet on an annualized basis and is comparable with the reporting of other industry participants.

8. Same Store Revenue Growth/Decline

Same store revenue growth or decline 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.

9. Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is calculated as Net cash provided by operating activities less revenue earning equipment expenditures, net of disposal proceeds and car rental fleet financing, less non-fleet capital expenditures, net of non-fleet disposals. Free cash flow is important to management and investors as it represents the cash available for acquisitions and the reduction of corporate debt.

10. 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; Senior Subordinated Notes, Convertible Senior Notes; and certain other indebtedness of our domestic and foreign subsidiaries. Net Corporate Debt is important to management, investors and ratings agencies 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 fully collateralized by assets not available to lenders under the non-fleet debt facilities.

11. 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.

12. Net Fleet Debt

Net fleet debt is calculated as total fleet debt less restricted cash associated with fleet debt.  As of December 31, 2013, fleet debt consists of HVF U.S. Fleet Variable Funding Notes, HVF U.S. Fleet Medium Term Notes, RCFC U.S. Fleet Medium Term Notes, HVF II U.S. Fleet Variable Funding Notes, HFLF Variable Funding Notes, HFLF Medium Term Notes, U.S. Fleet Financing Facility, European Revolving Credit Facility, European Fleet Notes, European Securitization, Hertz-Sponsored Canadian Securitization, Dollar Thrifty-Sponsored Canadian Securitization, Australian Securitization, Brazilian Fleet Financing and Capitalized Leases relating to revenue earning equipment. This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure our leverage.

13. 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.

14. Total Net Debt

Total net debt is calculated as net corporate debt plus net fleet debt.  This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure our leverage.
