Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) (with its subsidiaries, the "Company" or "we") reported fourth quarter 2009 worldwide revenues of $1.7 billion, a decrease of 2.7% year-over-year (a 6.5% decrease in constant currency). Worldwide car rental revenues for the quarter increased 3.4% (a 0.6% decrease in constant currency) to $1.5 billion. Revenues from worldwide equipment rental for the fourth quarter were $274.0 million, down 26.1% (a 28.9% decrease in constant currency) over the prior year period.

Fourth quarter 2009 adjusted pre-tax income was $39.2 million, versus adjusted pre-tax loss of $103.7 million in the same period in 2008, and loss before income taxes ("pre-tax loss"), on a GAAP basis, was $67.4 million, versus $1,446.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The fourth quarter of 2008 included a non-cash impairment charge of $1,168.9 million relating to our goodwill, other intangible assets and property and equipment. Corporate EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $221.0 million, an increase of 89.1% from the same period in 2008.

Fourth quarter 2009 adjusted net income(1) was $22.5 million, versus a loss of $73.0 million in the same period of 2008, resulting in adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter of $0.06, compared with adjusted diluted loss per share of $0.22 for the fourth quarter of 2008. Fourth quarter 2009 net loss, on a GAAP basis, was $30.9 million or $0.08 per share on a diluted basis, compared with a net loss of $1,218.0 million, or $3.77 per share on a diluted basis, for the fourth quarter of 2008.

Mark P. Frissora, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Our strong performance in the fourth quarter of 2009 was based on continued improvement in the U.S. car rental business, our largest market, and sustained progress throughout the year to develop new revenue sources and further reduce overall costs. For the full year 2009, we cut costs by $760 million, and by over $1.2 billion from 2007 through 2009. We also generated over $170 million of incremental revenues last year from new products and services, which helped offset recession-related pressure on our core businesses. In 2010, we expect to take more costs out of our business processes, further develop new revenue sources, and open over 150 new rental locations in the U.S. and internationally."

The Company took $34.5 million in restructuring and related charges in the fourth quarter of 2009, primarily attributable to costs associated with job reductions, the closure of rental locations and process reengineering. The Company said it expects restructuring and related charges to diminish significantly throughout 2010.

The Company ended the fourth quarter of 2009 with total debt of $10.4 billion and net corporate debt(1) of $3.6 billion, both similar to September 30, 2009. Net cash provided by operating activities was $516.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to $614.3 million last year.

WORLDWIDE CAR RENTAL

Worldwide car rental revenues were $1.5 billion for the fourth quarter of 2009, an increase of 3.4% (a 0.6% decrease in constant currency) from the prior year period. Transaction days for the quarter decreased 1.9% [0.7% U.S.; (7.1)% International]. U.S. off-airport revenues for the fourth quarter increased 6.2% year-over-year, and transaction days increased 8.0%. Rental rate revenue per transaction day(1) ("RPD") for the quarter increased 1.4% from the prior year period [1.8% U.S.; 0.8% International].

Worldwide car rental adjusted pre-tax income for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $96.9 million, versus an adjusted pre-tax loss of $66.7 million in the prior year period. The result was driven by higher RPD and strong cost management performance, including lower overall fleet costs and staffing/wage levels commensurate with rental volumes, as well as a value added tax reclaim. As a result, worldwide car rental achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin, based on revenues, of 6.6% for the quarter, versus a negative margin of 4.7% in the prior year period.

The worldwide average number of Company-operated cars for the fourth quarter of 2009 was 412,000, a decrease of 1.3% over the prior year period.

Additionally, the U.S. car rental business made year-over-year progress in the fourth quarter, due to further productivity and revenue generation improvements, year-over-year. A couple key metrics include:

--  Revenue per transaction, a good measure of pricing and transaction
    length mix, increased 1.6% year-over-year.
--  Revenue per vehicle, a good measure of fleet productivity, increased
    1.1% year-over-year.

WORLDWIDE EQUIPMENT RENTAL

Worldwide equipment rental revenues were $274.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, a 26.1% decrease (a 28.9% decrease in constant currency) from the prior year period.

Adjusted pre-tax income for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $25.8 million, a 43.9% decrease from the prior year period, primarily attributable to the effects of reduced volume and pricing, partially offset by cost management initiatives. HERC achieved an adjusted pre-tax margin, based on revenues, of 9.4%, and a Corporate EBITDA margin, based on revenues, of 40.5% for the quarter.

The average acquisition cost of rental equipment operated during the fourth quarter of 2009 decreased by 10.0% year-over-year -- compared with a 10.8% decrease in the fourth quarter of 2008 over the fourth quarter of 2007 -- to $2.8 billion, and net revenue earning equipment as of December 31, 2009 was $1.8 billion, a 16.3% decrease from the amount as of December 31, 2008.

FULL YEAR RESULTS

Worldwide revenues for the full year 2009 were $7.1 billion, a decrease of 16.7% over the prior year (a 14.5% decrease in constant currency). Worldwide car rental revenues for the year decreased 12.8% (a 10.5% decrease in constant currency) to $6.0 billion. Revenues from worldwide equipment rental for the year were $1,110.9 million, down 33.0% (a 31.4% decrease in constant currency) over the prior year.

Adjusted pre-tax income for the year was $198.9 million, a 16.1% decrease from 2008 and pre-tax loss, on a GAAP basis, was $171.0 million, versus $1,382.8 million in 2008. Corporate EBITDA for the year was $979.9 million, a 10.9% decrease from 2008.

Adjusted net income was $116.6 million, a 14.1% decrease from 2008, resulting in adjusted diluted earnings per share for the year of $0.29, compared $0.42 in the prior year. Net loss, on a GAAP basis, was $126.0 million or $0.34 per share on a diluted basis, compared with a net loss of $1,206.7 million, or $3.74 per share on a diluted basis, for 2008.

OUTLOOK

The Company will outline its full year 2010 guidance for revenues, Corporate EBITDA, adjusted pre-tax income and adjusted diluted earnings per share during the earnings conference call on Wednesday, February 24, 2010.

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION

The Company's operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation ("Hertz"), posted the same revenues for the fourth quarter and full year 2009 as the Company. Hertz's fourth quarter and full year 2009 pre-tax loss was, however, $11.3 million and $26.8 million, respectively, lower than that of the Company primarily because of 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.

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' February 23, 2010 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

We present EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA to provide investors with supplemental measures of our operating performance and liquidity and, in the case of Corporate EBITDA, information utilized in the calculation of the financial covenants under Hertz's senior credit facilities. EBITDA is defined as consolidated net income before net interest expense, consolidated income taxes and consolidated depreciation and amortization. Corporate EBITDA differs from the term "EBITDA" as it is commonly used. Corporate EBITDA means "EBITDA" as that term is defined under Hertz's senior credit facilities, which is generally consolidated net income before net interest expense (other than interest expense relating to certain car rental fleet financing), consolidated income taxes, consolidated depreciation (other than depreciation related to the car rental fleet) and amortization and before certain other items, in each case as more fully defined in the agreements governing Hertz's senior credit facilities. The other items excluded in this calculation include, but are not limited to: non-cash expenses and charges; extraordinary, unusual or non-recurring gains or losses; gains or losses associated with the sale or write-down of assets not in the ordinary course of business; and earnings to the extent of cash dividends or distributions paid from non-controlled affiliates. Further, the covenants in Hertz's senior credit facilities are calculated using Corporate EBITDA for the most recent four fiscal quarters as a whole. As a result, the measure can be disproportionately affected by a particularly strong or weak quarter. Further, it may not be comparable to the measure for any subsequent four-quarter period or for any complete fiscal year.

Management uses EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA as performance and cash flow 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. In addition, both metrics are important to allow us to evaluate profitability and make performance trend comparisons between us and our competitors. Further, we believe EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in our industries.

EBITDA is also used by management and investors to evaluate our operating performance exclusive of financing costs and depreciation policies. Further, because we have two business segments that are financed differently and have different underlying depreciation characteristics, EBITDA enables investors to isolate the effects on profitability of operating metrics such as revenue, operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses. In addition to its use to monitor performance trends, EBITDA provides a comparative metric to management and investors that is consistent across companies with different capital structures and depreciation policies. This enables management and investors to compare our performance on a consolidated basis and on a segment basis to that of our peers. In addition, our management uses consolidated EBITDA as a proxy for cash flow available to finance fleet expenditures and the costs of our capital structure on a day-to-day basis so that we can more easily monitor our cash flows when a full statement of cash flows is not available.

Corporate EBITDA also serves as an important measure of our performance. Corporate EBITDA for our car rental segment enables us to assess our operating performance inclusive of fleet management performance, depreciation assumptions and the cost of financing our fleet. In addition, Corporate EBITDA for our car rental segment allows us to compare our performance, inclusive of fleet mix and financing decisions, to the performance of our competitors. Since most of our competitors utilize asset-backed fleet debt to finance fleet acquisitions, this measure is relevant for evaluating our operating efficiency inclusive of our fleet acquisition and utilization. For our equipment rental segment, Corporate EBITDA provides an appropriate measure of performance because the investment in our equipment fleet is longer-term in nature than for our car rental segment and therefore Corporate EBITDA allows management to assess operating performance exclusive of interim changes in depreciation assumptions. Further, unlike our car rental segment, our equipment rental fleet is not financed through separate securitization-based fleet financing facilities, but rather through our corporate debt. Corporate EBITDA for our equipment rental segment is a key measure used to make investment decisions because it enables us to evaluate return on investments. For both segments, Corporate EBITDA provides a relevant profitability metric for use in comparison of our performance against our public peers, many of whom publicly disclose a comparable metric. In addition, we believe that investors, analysts and rating agencies consider EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA useful in measuring our ability to meet our debt service obligations and make capital expenditures. Several of Hertz's material debt covenants are based on financial ratios utilizing Corporate EBITDA and non-compliance with those covenants could result in the requirement to immediately repay all amounts outstanding under those agreements, which could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position and cash flows.

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. EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA may have material limitations as performance measures because they exclude items that are necessary elements of our costs and operations. Because other companies may calculate EBITDA and Corporate EBITDA differently than we do, EBITDA may not be, and Corporate EBITDA as presented is not, comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Borrowings under Hertz's senior credit facilities are a key source of our liquidity. Hertz's ability to borrow under these senior credit facilities depends upon, among other things, the maintenance of a sufficient borrowing base and compliance with the financial ratio covenants based on Corporate EBITDA set forth in the credit agreements for Hertz's senior credit facilities. Hertz's senior term loan facility requires the maintenance of a specified consolidated leverage ratio and a consolidated interest expense coverage ratio based on Corporate EBITDA, while its senior asset-based loan facility requires that a specified consolidated leverage ratio and consolidated fixed charge coverage ratio be maintained for periods during which there is less than $200 million of available borrowing capacity under the senior asset-based loan facility. These financial covenants became applicable to Hertz beginning September 30, 2006, reflecting the four quarter period ending thereon. Failure to comply with these financial ratio covenants would result in a default under the credit agreements for Hertz's senior credit facilities and, absent a waiver or an amendment from the lenders, permit the acceleration of all outstanding borrowings under the senior credit facilities. As of December 31, 2009, we performed the calculations associated with the above noted financial covenants and determined that Hertz is in compliance with such covenants.

2. Adjusted Pre-Tax Income

Adjusted pre-tax income is calculated as income before income taxes and noncontrolling interest 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 2009 and 2008) 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 2009, 407.7 million which represents the actual diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding for the year ended December 31, 2008 plus 85 million shares offered in the 2009 common stock offerings and for 2008, the actual diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding for the year ended December 31, 2007 of 325.5 million. 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 represents the best measurements 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. 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

Same store revenue growth represents the change in the current period total same store revenue over the prior period total same store revenue as a percentage of the prior period. 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 equipment rental fleet depreciation including gain (loss) on sale, non-fleet capital expenditures, net of non-fleet disposals, plus changes in working capital (accounts receivable, inventories, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued liabilities), and changes in other assets and liabilities (including public liability and property damage, U.S. pension liability, other assets and liabilities, equity and noncontrolling interest). 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 total interest expense, net of total interest income, less car rental fleet interest expense, net of car rental fleet interest income, and non-cash corporate interest charges. Non-cash corporate interest charges represent the amortization of corporate debt financing costs and corporate debt discounts. 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. Levered After-Tax Cash Flow After Fleet Growth

Levered after-tax cash flow after fleet growth is calculated as Levered After-Tax Cash Flow Before Fleet Growth less equipment rental fleet growth capital expenditures and less gross car rental fleet growth capital expenditures plus car rental fleet financing. Levered after-tax cash flow after fleet growth is important to management and investors as it represents the funds 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 senior notes issued prior to the acquisition of all of Hertz's common stock on December 21, 2005; borrowings under our Senior Term Facility; borrowings under our Senior ABL Facility; our Senior Notes; our Senior Subordinated Notes; our 5.25% 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. Fleet debt consists of our U.S. ABS Fleet Debt, the Fleet Financing Facility, obligations incurred under our International Fleet Debt Facilities, Capital Leases relating to revenue earning equipment that are outside the International Fleet Debt Facilities, the International ABS Fleet Financing Facility, the Belgian Fleet Financing Facility, the Brazilian Fleet Financing Facility, the Canadian Fleet Financing Facility and the pre-Acquisition ABS Notes. 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.

19. Total Net Cash Flow

Total net cash flow is calculated as the change in the debt balances less the change in cash and equivalents and restricted cash, adjusted for the effects of foreign currency. Total net cash flow is important to management, investors and rating agencies as it represents funds available to grow our fleet or reduce our debt.
