Hertz Global Holdings affirms full-year 2016 adjusted corporate EBITDA guidance between $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion

ESTERO, Fla., May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) ("Hertz Global" or the "Company") today reported a first quarter 2016 net loss of $51 million, or $0.12 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $70 million, or $0.15 loss per share, during the same period last year. On an adjusted basis, the Company reported a net loss for the first quarter of 2016 of $52 million, or $0.12 loss per share, compared with net income of $2 million, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2015. Total revenues for the first quarter of 2016 were $2.3 billion, a 6% decline versus the first quarter of 2015.  Adjusted corporate EBITDA for the first quarter was $155 million versus $226 million in the same period last year, a decline of $71 million.  Excluding the impact of favorable non-recurring items recorded in the first quarter of 2015, adjusted corporate EBITDA for the first quarter of 2016 declined $55 million year-over-year.

Worldwide car rental revenues of $1.8 billion declined approximately 6% versus first quarter 2015.  Excluding the impact of foreign currency, revenues declined 5% resulting from a 7% decrease in total revenue per day (RPD) partially offset by a 2% increase in transaction days. Unit revenues, as defined by revenue per available car day (RACD), declined 2% versus first quarter 2015 primarily as a result of a 3.3% decline in the U.S. Car Rental segment due to weak industry pricing.  The 3.3% decline in U.S. Car Rental RACD was in line with the range the Company provided in its April 11, 2016, business update.

Worldwide car rental average fleet declined 4% versus the first quarter of 2015 while fleet efficiency rose to 77%, a 400 basis point increase versus the first quarter of 2015.  The improvement in fleet efficiency was the result of actions the Company took to reduce capacity and improve efficiency in the U.S. market.

Continuing the improvement trend from 2015, worldwide customer satisfaction, as measured by Net Promoter Score®, rose for the Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty brands in the first quarter of 2016, up more than 5 points year-over-year. The Hertz brand reached a record-level customer satisfaction score on a worldwide basis in the first quarter.

Worldwide cost savings of approximately $70 million were achieved in the first quarter, reflecting continued progress as part of the Company's three-to-five year margin improvement plan.  Unit costs for the Company's worldwide rental car business, defined as direct operating and selling, general and administrative expenses per transaction day, declined 5% versus the first quarter of 2015. The Company expects cost savings to accelerate in the second half of 2016 due to the timing of cost-reduction initiatives and is on pace to achieve its previously announced target of $350 million of full-year 2016 cost savings.

"During the first quarter, we followed through on our plans to bring fleet levels in line with expected demand in the U.S. market and saw a significant improvement in our fleet efficiency as a result. Though industry pricing decreased more than we anticipated, we mitigated the impact on our performance by continuing to lower our costs, which resulted in a 5% reduction in unit cost in our worldwide rental car business in the quarter," said John Tague, president and chief executive officer. "We are encouraged by recent pricing trends as we move into the peak season as well as by rising customer satisfaction across the Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty brands year-over-year. The improvement was led by the Hertz brand, which reached a record for customer satisfaction on a worldwide basis.

"By continuing to lower our costs and improve overall quality in our business as part of our three-to-five year margin improvement plan, we remain on track to deliver on our adjusted corporate EBITDA target for 2016 despite the first-quarter pricing decline."

NM - Not Meaningful

Total U.S. Car Rental segment revenues were $1.4 billion in the first quarter of 2016, a decrease of 8%, versus the same period last year.  The decline in total revenue was driven primarily by a 10% decline in pricing, which the company defines as Total Revenue Per Day (Total RPD), partially offset by a 2% increase in transaction days. Total RPD declined by 7% year-over-year excluding the impact of the transaction days-counting methodology related to the integration of Dollar and Thrifty to the Hertz counter system, fuel-related ancillary revenue, and fleet mix.  First-quarter adjusted corporate EBITDA for the U.S. Car Rental segment was $26 million, or a margin of 2%, which reflects a $74 million decline versus the same period last year.

First-quarter 2016 Worldwide Equipment Rental segment revenues totaled $328 million, a decrease of 8% from the first quarter of 2015. Revenues were negatively affected by continuing weakness in upstream oil and gas markets and the sale of equipment rental operations in France and Spain in October 2015.  Excluding those factors, on a constant currency basis, revenues increased 12% primarily due to new account growth while pricing increased 1% in non-oil and gas markets. Revenue in upstream oil and gas markets represented approximately 18% of total revenues for the Worldwide Equipment Rental segment, on a constant currency basis, in the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted corporate EBITDA for the Worldwide Equipment Rental segment for the first quarter of 2016 was $122 million, a $10 million decrease versus the first quarter of 2015. Half of the adjusted corporate EBITDA decline is attributable to foreign exchange and the impact of the sale of operations in France and Spain. The remainder reflects declines in major upstream oil and gas markets.

The separation of HERC from Hertz Global remains on track for mid-2016, and the Company affirmed its Worldwide Equipment Rental segment full-year 2016 Adjusted Corporate EBITDA guidance between $600 million and $650 million.

OTHER ACTIONS

In March 2016, Hertz Global Holdings reached an agreement to sell a portion of its shares of CAR Inc. stock to UCAR Technology and extend an existing commercial agreement between CAR Inc. and Hertz Global to 2023 in exchange for cash proceeds of $240 million. The sale substantially reduced the Company's equity position in CAR Inc., China's largest rental car company, to 1.7% of CAR Inc.'s total shares. The agreement extension between Hertz and CAR Inc. will enable Hertz Global to continue to participate in the anticipated growth in the China car rental market as well as provide Hertz customers with access to car rental and chauffeur services through CAR Inc.'s more than 700 locations across China.

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION

The GAAP and Non-GAAP profitability metrics for Hertz Global Holdings' operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation, are materially the same as those for Hertz Global Holdings.

(1) Adjusted pre-tax income, Adjusted pre-tax margin, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income margin, adjusted diluted earnings per share, total revenue per transaction day, revenue per available car day and net depreciation per unit per month are non-GAAP measures. See the accompanying Supplemental Schedules and Definitions 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.

(2) Because of the forward-looking nature of the Company's Adjusted Corporate EBITDA forecast, specific quantifications of the amounts that would be required to reconcile a pre-tax income forecast 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 forecast of 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 Adjusted Corporate EBITDA would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors for the reasons identified above.

Under recent accounting guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board, effective January 1, 2016 and applied retrospectively, certain debt issue costs are required to be reported as a deduction from the carrying amount of the related debt obligation.  Previously these costs were reported as an asset.  Management believes that eliminating the effects that these costs have on debt will more accurately reflect our net debt position.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND KEY METRICS - DEFINITIONS AND USE

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

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

Adjusted Pre-Tax Income (Loss) and Adjusted Pre-tax Margin

Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is calculated as income before income taxes plus certain non-cash acquisition accounting charges, debt-related charges relating to the amortization and write-off of debt financing costs and debt discounts and certain one-time charges and non-operational items. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) 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 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. When evaluating the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider adjusted pre-tax income (loss) in isolation of, or as a substitute for, measures of the Company's financial performance, such as net income (loss) or income (loss) before income taxes. Adjusted pre-tax margin is adjusted pre-tax income (loss) divided by total revenues.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income Margin

Adjusted net income is calculated as adjusted pre-tax income less a provision for income taxes derived utilizing a  combined statutory rate of 37%. The combined statutory 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. Adjusted net income margin is adjusted net income divided by total revenues.

Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share

Adjusted net income per diluted share is calculated as adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period.  Adjusted net income per diluted 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.

Available Car Days is calculated as average fleet multiplied by the number of days in a period. Average fleet used to calculate available car days in our U.S. Car Rental segment excludes Advantage sublease and Hertz 24/7 vehicles as these vehicles do not have associated transaction days.

Average Fleet

Average Fleet is determined using a simple average of the number of vehicles owned by the Company at the beginning and end of a given period. Among other things, average fleet is used to calculate our fleet efficiency which represents the portion of the Company's fleet that is being utilized to generate revenue.

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.

Dollar Utilization

Dollar utilization means revenue derived from the rental of equipment divided by the original cost of the equipment including additional capitalized refurbishment costs (with the basis of refurbished assets at the refurbishment date).

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("Gross EBITDA"), Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin

Gross 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 Gross EBITDA as adjusted for car rental fleet interest, car rental fleet depreciation and car rental debt-related charges. Adjusted Corporate EBITDA, as presented herein, represents Corporate EBITDA as adjusted for certain other items, as described in more detail in the accompanying schedules.

Management uses Gross EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted 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, Gross 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 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 Adjusted Corporate EBITDA as a supplemental measure because such information is utilized in the calculation of financial covenants under the Company's senior credit facilities and in the determination of certain executive compensation.

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin is calculated as the ratio of Adjusted Corporate EBITDA to total revenues and is used by the Compensation Committee to determine certain executive compensation, primarily in the form of PSUs.

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

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 reflects time and mileage and ancillary charges for equipment on rent and is comparable with the reporting of other industry participants.

Fleet Efficiency

Fleet efficiency is calculated by dividing total transaction days by the available car days.

Fleet Growth

U.S. and International car rental fleet growth is defined as car rental fleet capital expenditures, net of proceeds from disposals, plus car rental fleet depreciation and net car rental fleet financing which includes borrowings, repayments and the change in fleet restricted cash.  Worldwide equipment rental fleet growth is defined as worldwide equipment rental fleet expenditures, net of proceeds from disposals, plus depreciation.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities, excluding depreciation of revenue earning equipment, net of car rental and equipment rental fleet growth and property and equipment net expenditures.  Free cash flow is important to management and investors as it represents the cash available for acquisitions and the reduction of corporate debt.

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; Promissory Notes; Convertible Senior Notes; and certain other indebtedness of our domestic and foreign subsidiaries.

Net Corporate Debt is important to management and investors 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 collateralized by assets not available to lenders under the non-fleet debt facilities.

Net Depreciation Per Unit Per Month

Net depreciation per unit per month is calculated by dividing depreciation of revenue earning equipment and lease charges, net by the average fleet in each period and then dividing by the number of months in the period reported 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 useful in analyzing underlying trends. Average fleet used to calculate net depreciation per unit per month in our U.S. Car Rental segment includes Advantage sublease and Hertz 24/7 vehicles as these vehicles have associated lease charges. Net depreciation per unit per month represents the amount of average depreciation expense and lease charges, net per vehicle per month.

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.

Revenue Per Available Car Day ("RACD")

Revenue per available car day is calculated as total revenues less ancillary revenue associated with retail car sales, divided by available car 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 metric is important to our management and investors as it represents a measurement of the changes in underlying pricing in the car rental business and provides a measure of revenue production relative to overall capacity.

Same Store Revenue Growth/Decline

Same store revenue growth 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.

Time Utilization

Time utilization means the percentage of time an equipment unit is on-rent during a given period.

Total Net Debt

Total net debt is calculated as total debt less total cash and cash equivalents and total restricted cash. This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure our gross leverage.

Total RPD

Total RPD is calculated as total revenue less ancillary revenue associated with retail car sales, 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 metric is important to our management and investors as it represents a 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.

Transaction Days

Transaction days represent the total number of 24-hour periods, with any partial period counted as one transaction day, that vehicles were on rent (the period between when a rental contract is opened and closed) in a given period. Thus, it is possible for a vehicle to attain more than one transaction day in a 24-hour period. Late in the third quarter of 2015 the Company fully integrated the Dollar Thrifty and Hertz counter systems and as a result aligned the transaction day calculation in the Hertz system.  As a result of this alignment, Hertz determined that there was an impact to the calculation.  Hertz expects that transaction days for the U.S. Car Rental segment will increase by approximately 1% prospectively relative to the historic calculations through the third quarter of 2016.
