PARK RIDGE, N.J., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) (with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "we") reported third quarter 2012 worldwide revenues of $2.5 billion, an increase of 3.4% year-over-year (a 6.4% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency, primarily in Europe).  Worldwide car rental revenues for the quarter increased 2.1% year-over-year (a 5.3% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) to a record $2,152.6 million.  Revenues from worldwide equipment rental for the third quarter were $363.0 million, up 12.8% year-over-year (a 14.2% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency), driven by an 18.6% revenue increase in the U.S. and 17.1% in North America. 

Third quarter 2012 adjusted pre-tax income was a record $424.8 million increasing 22.5% over the same period in 2011, and income before income taxes ("pre-tax income"), on a GAAP basis, was $368.9 million, an increase of 24.8% over the third quarter of 2011.  Corporate EBITDA(1) for the third quarter of 2012 was a record $607.0 million, an increase of 15.5% from the same period in 2011.

Third quarter 2012 adjusted net income(1) was a record $280.3 million, versus $223.2 million in the same period of 2011, resulting in adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter of $0.63, compared with $0.51 for the third quarter of 2011.  Third quarter 2012 net income attributable to Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. and subsidiaries' common stockholders, or "net income," on a GAAP basis, was $242.9 million or a record $0.55 per share on a diluted basis, compared with $206.7 million, or $0.47 per share on a diluted basis, for the third quarter of 2011.

Mark P. Frissora, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, " I am especially pleased with our ability to improve the consolidated adjusted operating margin 260 bps in the third quarter despite soft global macro economic conditions.   Margin improvement was driven by a 220 bp decline in consolidated adjusted direct operating and selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales, and $145 million of incremental efficiency savings.   Additionally, HERC's 18.6% U.S. revenue growth in the third quarter easily outpaced the competition as we gained momentum in new markets and with new fleet," he noted.

Corporate cash flow(1) in the quarter, and year to date, improved by $308.2 million and $489.5 million respectively.  The year to date improvement was due primarily to higher earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization, improved working capital, and reduced interest expense.  The Company ended the third quarter of 2012 with total debt of $12.7 billion and net corporate debt(1) of $4.3 billion, compared with total debt of $12.5 billion and net corporate debt of $4.4 billion as of September 30, 2011. Net corporate debt decreased since September 30, 2011 by $183 million, as cash flow was used to fund $238 million in acquisitions and to reduce corporate debt balances.

WORLDWIDE CAR RENTAL

Worldwide car rental revenues were a record $2,152.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 2.1% (a 5.3% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) from the prior year period. The Company achieved record transaction days for the quarter which increased 3.4% over the third quarter of 2011 [6.1% U.S.; (1.8)% International]. U.S. off-airport total revenues for the third quarter increased 4.1% year-over-year, and transaction days increased 6.3% from the prior year period. Worldwide rental rate revenue per transaction day(1) ("RPD") for the quarter decreased 2.6% [(2.8)% U.S.; (2.0)% International] from the prior year period.  RPD continues to be impacted by the shift in the mix between airport and off-airport rentals.  When adjusted for mix, third quarter U.S. RPD decreased only 2.1%.  The Company noted that it managed fleets tighter in the third quarter due to the negative pricing environment.  While volume growth was tempered as a result, U.S. fleet efficiency reached an all-time high of 82.8%. 

Growth in off-airport rentals, and specifically growth in replacement rentals, which have longer rental lengths, has a negative impact on RPD. However, it is important to note that off-airport's profit contribution is growing significantly. There is continued pressure on commercial pricing as well as in the deep value segment, where new competitors are aggressively discounting rentals in an attempt to gain market share.  In Europe, improved pricing in commercial rentals is being more than offset by negative pricing for leisure rentals, where demand is softest.

Worldwide car rental adjusted pre-tax income for the third quarter of 2012 was a record $428.7 million, an increase of $53.4 million from $375.3 million in the prior year period.  The result was driven primarily by increased volume, strong cost management performance and lower net depreciation per vehicle, partially offset by a decrease in RPD. As a result, worldwide car rental achieved a record adjusted pre-tax margin(1) of 19.9% for the quarter, versus 17.8% in the prior year period.

The worldwide average number of Company-operated cars for the third quarter of 2012 was 703,200, an increase of 5.3% over the prior year period, and a 2.2% increase year-over-year excluding the effects of the Donlen acquisition.

WORLDWIDE EQUIPMENT RENTAL

Worldwide equipment rental revenues were $363.0 million for the third quarter of 2012, a 12.8% increase (a 14.2% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) from the prior year period, driven by an 18.6% revenue increase in the U.S. and 17.1% in North America. 

Adjusted pre-tax income for worldwide equipment rental for the third quarter of 2012 was $76.2 million, an improvement of $20.3 million from $55.9 million in the prior year period, primarily attributable to the effects of increased volume and pricing and cost management initiatives.  Worldwide equipment rental achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin of 21.0% and a Corporate EBITDA margin(1) of 45.6% for the quarter. 

The average acquisition cost of rental equipment operated during the third quarter of 2012 increased by 11.0% year-over-year and net revenue earning equipment as of September 30, 2012 was $2,184.8 million, compared to $2,030.0 million as of June 30, 2012.

OUTLOOK   

The Company reaffirms its full year 2012 revenues, Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share guidance provided on May 2, 2012.  The Company expects to generate worldwide revenues in the range of $8.9 billion to $9.0 billion, Corporate EBITDA in the range of $1.60 billion to $1.66 billion, adjusted pre-tax income in the range of $870 million to $940 million, adjusted net income in the range of $570 million to $620 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of $1.28 to $1.38 (based on 450 million shares).(2)

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION

The Company's operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation ("Hertz"), posted the same revenues for the third quarter of 2012 as the Company.  Hertz's third quarter 2012 pre-tax income was $382.1 million versus the Company's pre-tax income of $368.9 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, corporate cash flow, net corporate debt and rental rate revenue per transaction day 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.
