Hertz Files Registration Statement as Next Step to Acquire Dollar Thrifty

Hertz Global Holdings Inc. announced Wednesday that it filed a registration statement on Form S-4 with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to its previously announced merger agreement with Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc.

The registration statement includes a preliminary prospectus covering shares of Hertz's common stock to be issued to Dollar Thrifty stockholders under the terms of the merger agreement and also includes Dollar Thrifty's preliminary proxy statement, seeking the adoption of the merger agreement by Dollar Thrifty's stockholders.

"The filing of the S-4 registration statement represents the next step in achieving the agreed upon merger of Hertz and Dollar Thrifty which we look forward to completing in the near future," Hertz Chairman and CEO Mark P. Frissora said.

"Dollar Thrifty's well-established presence in the value leisure segment of the U.S. airport car rental market, as well as other key international markets, complements Hertz's global presence in the business and premium leisure car rental segments," he added.
