Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) (with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "we") reported second quarter 2011 worldwide revenues of $2.1 billion, an increase of 10.3% year-over-year (a 5.8% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency).  Worldwide car rental revenues for the quarter increased 9.8% year-over-year (a 5.0% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) to $1.8 billion.  Revenues from worldwide equipment rental for the second quarter were $301.7 million, up 13.5% year-over-year (a 10.5% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency).    

Second quarter 2011 adjusted pre-tax income was $184.4 million, versus $95.8 million in the same period in 2010, and income before income taxes ("pre-tax income"), on a GAAP basis, was $94.6 million, versus a loss of $6.2 million in the second quarter of 2010.  Corporate EBITDA(1) for the second quarter of 2011 was $362.1 million, an increase of 28.7% from the same period in 2010.  

Second quarter 2011 adjusted net income(1) was $116.6 million, versus $58.5 million in the same period of 2010, resulting in adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter of $0.26, compared with $0.14 for the second quarter of 2010.  Second quarter 2011 net income attributable to Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. and Subsidiaries' common stockholders, or "net income," on a GAAP basis, was $55.0 million or $0.12 per share on a diluted basis, compared with a net loss of $25.1 million, or $0.06 loss per share on a diluted basis, for the second quarter of 2010.

Mark P. Frissora, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "It is especially gratifying to see our global team drive Hertz's profitability to levels we haven't seen before.  Second quarter 2011 adjusted pre-tax income beat our 2007 pre-recession second quarter by over $27 million, on $100 million lower revenues, with pre-tax margins which were 170 bps higher than 2007, and 380 bps above last year.  These excellent results were attributable to strong year-over-year profit improvement in U.S. rent-a-car and our equipment rental businesses, despite major investments in our strategic initiatives."

The Company ended the second quarter of 2011 with total debt of $11.69 billion and net corporate debt(1) of $4.0 billion, compared with total debt of $10.75 billion and net corporate debt of $3.76 billion as of March 31, 2011. Total debt increased in the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to the seasonally higher fleet levels, partly offset by the redemption of $480 million of our 8.875% Senior Notes in April 2011.  Net corporate debt increased primarily due to increased borrowings under our Senior ABL Facility and a decrease in cash and cash equivalents.  Net cash provided by operating activities was $521.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, compared to $731.6 million in the same period last year, a decrease of $210.3 million.  The decrease was primarily due to the timing of our equipment rental customer receivables and VAT receivables as a result of improvements in the operating performance of our business, as well as timing of our vendor and interest payments.  The decrease was partly offset by an increase in net income before non-cash expenses.

WORLDWIDE CAR RENTAL

Worldwide car rental revenues were $1.8 billion for the second quarter of 2011, an increase of 9.8% (a 5.0% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) from the prior year period. Transaction days for the quarter increased 8.2% over second quarter of 2010 [8.3% U.S.; 7.9% International]. U.S. off-airport total revenues for the second quarter increased 9.0% year-over-year, and transaction days increased 9.7% from the prior year period. Worldwide rental rate revenue per transaction day(1) ("RPD") for the quarter decreased 3.9% [(4.3)% U.S.; (3.2)% International] from the prior year period.  

Worldwide car rental adjusted pre-tax income for the second quarter of 2011 was $242.2 million, an increase of $67.3 million from $174.9 million in the prior year period.  The result was driven by increased volume, strong residual values and strong cost management performance. As a result, worldwide car rental achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin of 13.7% for the quarter, versus 10.9% in the prior year period.

The worldwide average number of Company-operated cars for the second quarter of 2011 was 487,600 an increase of 8.7% over the prior year period.   The Company noted that ongoing structural changes in U.S. rental car fleet management as well as a strong residual market helped improve net depreciation to historic levels.

WORLDWIDE EQUIPMENT RENTAL

Worldwide equipment rental revenues were $301.7 million for the second quarter of 2011, a 13.5% increase (an 10.5% increase excluding the effects of foreign currency) from the prior year period.

Adjusted pre-tax income for worldwide equipment rental for the second quarter of 2011 was $33.4 million, an improvement of $19.0 million from $14.4 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 11.1%, and a Corporate EBITDA margin of 37.4% for the quarter.

The average acquisition cost of rental equipment operated during the second quarter of 2011 increased by 2.8% year-over-year and net revenue earning equipment as of June 30, 2011 was $1,702.7 million, a 0.9% increase from March 31, 2011.

OUTLOOK    

Hertz has increased its full year 2011 guidance for revenues, Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share as follows:

Revised Guidance

Prior Guidance

Revenues

$8.15 to $8.25 billion

$8.1 to $8.2 billion

Corporate EBITDA(2)

$1.360 to $1.395 billion

$1.320 to $1.360 billion

Adjusted Pre-Tax Income(2)

$635 to $670 million

$595 to $625 million

Adjusted Net Income(2)

$401 to $424 million

$375 to $395 million

Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share(2)

$0.91 to $0.96

$0.85 to $0.90

The adjusted diluted number of shares outstanding is estimated to fluctuate within a range of 413 million to 450 million throughout the year.  For example, based on 440 million adjusted diluted shares outstanding, the Company's full year 2011 guidance for adjusted diluted earnings per share is $0.96, using the upper end of  the adjusted net income guidance range.  The Company will continue to provide an estimate of forecasted adjusted diluted shares outstanding on a quarterly basis.

The Company, noting that it has now increased full year guidance five times in the last eight quarters, commented that the current revision reflects better than forecasted performance in the recently completed second quarter of 2011, as well as fleet and other cost efficiencies forecasted to positively impact 2011 results. Additionally, the Company has assumed that macro-economic conditions remain unsettled in the U.S. in the second half of 2011.  

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION

The Company's operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation ("Hertz"), posted the same revenues for the second quarter of 2011 as the Company.  Hertz's second quarter 2011 pre-tax income was $107.0 million versus the Company's pre-tax income of $94.6 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 June 2009.

(1) Adjusted pre-tax income, Corporate EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, 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 indentified above.

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’ August 2, 2011 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, non-cash debt 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 (34% in 2011 and 2010) 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, non-cash debt 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 June 30, 2011, 450.0 million which represents the approximate number of shares outstanding at June 30, 2011, for the six months ended June 30, 2011, 431.5 million which represents the average for the period and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, 410.0 million which represents the approximate number of shares outstanding at December 31, 2009. 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, non-cash debt 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 Rate Revenue,  Rental Rate Revenue Per Transaction Day and Rental Rate Revenue Per Transaction

Car rental rate revenue consists of all revenue, net of discounts, associated with the rental of cars including charges for optional insurance products, but excluding revenue derived from fueling and concession and other expense pass-throughs, NeverLost units in the U.S. and certain ancillary revenue. Rental rate revenue per transaction day is calculated as total rental rate revenue, divided by the total number of transaction days, with all periods adjusted to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency. Rental rate revenue per transaction is calculated as total rental rate revenue, divided by the total number of transactions, with all periods adjusted to eliminate the effects 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.  These statistics are important to management and investors as they represent the best measurements of the changes in underlying pricing in the car rental business and encompass the elements in car rental pricing that management has the ability to control.  The optional insurance products are packaged within certain negotiated corporate, government and membership programs and within certain retail rates being charged.  Based upon these existing programs and rate packages, management believes that these optional insurance products should be consistently included in the daily pricing of car rental transactions.  On the other hand, non-rental rate revenue items such as refueling and concession pass-through expense items are driven by factors beyond the control of management (i.e. the price of fuel and the concession fees charged by airports).   Additionally, NeverLost units are an optional revenue product which management does not consider to be part of their daily pricing of car rental transactions.    

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. Unlevered Pre-Tax Cash Flow

Unlevered pre-tax cash flow is calculated as Corporate EBITDA less non-fleet capital expenditures, net of non-fleet disposals, plus changes in working capital (receivables, excluding car rental receivables, inventories, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued liabilities), cash used for acquisitions, cash used for / provided by other investing activities, cash used / provided by non-debt financing activities and the foreign exchange impact on cash and cash equivalents. Unlevered pre-tax cash flow is important to management and investors as it represents funds available to pay corporate interest and taxes and to grow our fleet or reduce debt.

10. Levered After-Tax Cash Flow Before Fleet Growth

Levered after-tax cash flow before fleet growth is calculated as Unlevered Pre-Tax Cash Flow less corporate net cash interest and corporate cash taxes. Levered after-tax cash flow before fleet growth is important to management and investors as it represents the funds available to grow our fleet or reduce our debt.

11. Corporate Net Cash Interest (used in the calculation of Levered After-Tax Cash Flow Before Fleet Growth)

Corporate net cash interest represents cash paid by the Company during the period for interest expense relating to Corporate Debt. Corporate net cash interest helps management and investors measure the ongoing costs of financing the business exclusive of the costs associated with the fleet financing.

12. Corporate Cash Taxes (used in the calculation of Levered After-Tax Cash Flow Before Fleet Growth)

Corporate cash taxes represents cash paid by the Company during the period for income taxes.

13. Corporate Cash Flow

Corporate cash flow is calculated as Levered After-Tax Cash Flow Before Fleet Growth less equipment rental fleet growth capital expenditures, net of disposal proceeds and less the car rental fleet equity requirement. Corporate cash flow is important to management and investors as it represents the cash available for the reduction of corporate debt.

14. 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.

15. 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.

16. Net Fleet Debt

Net fleet debt is calculated as total fleet debt less restricted cash associated with fleet debt.  As of June 30, 2011, fleet debt consists of U.S. Fleet Variable Funding Notes, U.S. Fleet Medium Term Notes, U.S. Fleet Financing Facility, European Revolving Credit Facility, European Seasonal Revolving Credit Facility, European Fleet Notes, European Securitization, Canadian Securitization, Australian Securitization,  Brazilian Fleet Financing Facility and Capitalized Leases relating to revenue earning equipment. This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure our leverage.

17. 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.

18. 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.
