Hertz Global Holdings Reports Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

ESTERO, Fla., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) ("Hertz Global" or the "Company") today reported a second quarter 2017 net loss from continuing operations of $158 million, or $1.90 per diluted share, including $54 million of impairment charges, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $28 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, during the second quarter 2016. On an adjusted basis, the Company reported a net loss for the second quarter 2017 of $52 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, compared with net income of $35 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the same period last year.

Total revenues for the second quarter 2017 were $2.2 billion, a 2% decline versus the second quarter 2016. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes for second quarter 2017 was $245 million, including $86 million of impairment charges, versus $35 million in the same period last year. Adjusted Corporate EBITDA for the second quarter 2017 was $35 million, compared to $184 million in the same period last year.

"We have made significant progress in the first half of the year, executing on our operating turnaround plan. Of course, the hard work always comes before the pay off as reflected in our second quarter results, where increased spending to fix areas of weakness and invest in areas of opportunity were exacerbated by a challenging vehicle residual environment in the U.S.," said Kathryn V. Marinello, president and chief executive officer of Hertz. "On the upside, we have now completed our U.S. fleet transformation, redesigned 37 Hertz airport locations for Ultimate Choice, updated our financial and revenue management systems, and introduced new management tools and resources to drive service excellence. Admittedly, we still have a lot of work to do, but these early wins are evidence that we have the right plan in place to ultimately achieve best-in-class outcomes."

NM - Not Meaningful

Total U.S. RAC revenues were $1.5 billion in the second quarter 2017, a decrease of 4%, versus the same period last year. Transaction days decreased by 3% year-over-year as compared to a strong second quarter 2016, which was driven by replacement rentals from unusually high customer vehicle recall activity. Pricing, as measured by Total RPD, decreased by 2% in the quarter, driven by a change in customer mix year-over-year and weaker ancillary revenues.

Second quarter U.S. RAC net vehicle depreciation per month increased 27% versus the same period last year to $353 per unit primarily driven by declining residual values, accelerated vehicle disposition timing and fleet quality and mix investments. Despite the decrease in industry residual values, the Company stayed on course with its fleet optimization plan, selling 35% more vehicles year-over-year and onboarding a richer mix of model year 2017 vehicles.  As planned, the Company reduced its total average fleet by 1% in the second quarter compared with a year earlier, as the number of core rental vehicles declined by 3%, partially offset by an increase in the vehicles dedicated to the ride hailing fleet. While utilization declined by 130 basis points in the quarter, the Company has made early progress toward driving customer satisfaction and improving profitability longer term.  Its goal of reducing its mix of compact cars to 16% of the total U.S. fleet from 21% a year ago was met at quarter end, better reflecting customer preference.  Also, the Company continued to roll out its Ultimate Choice program, where customers are able to choose their preferred vehicle, on site, with no wait.

Second quarter 2017 Adjusted Corporate EBITDA for U.S. RAC was a negative $22 million, a $190 million decline versus the same period last year. In addition to revenue pressure and increased fleet costs, the reduction was impacted by investments related to service-level improvements, systems enhancements and brand development initiatives.

The Company's International RAC segment revenues were $543 million in the second quarter 2017, an increase of 1% from the second quarter 2016. Excluding an $18 million unfavorable impact of foreign currency exchange rates, revenues increased 4% driven by a 6% increase in transaction days, partially offset by a 1% decrease in Total RPD.

Second quarter 2017 Adjusted Corporate EBITDA for International RAC was $63 million, a 50% increase from the same period last year. The year-over-year increase reflects a $20 million charge taken in the second quarter of 2016 related to adverse public liability and property damage claims experience and case development that did not reoccur this year as a result of actions taken by management to improve claims handling and changes in business practices.

All Other Operations, which is primarily comprised of the Company's Donlen leasing operations, reported an 11% increase in total revenues for the second quarter 2017. Adjusted Corporate EBITDA for the All Other Operations segment was $17 million for the second quarter 2017, which is an increase of 6% versus second quarter last year.

OUTLOOK
In the U.S. rental car segment, the Company is encouraged by preliminary third quarter 2017 total revenue per day trends. In July, total revenue per day is expected to have increased by approximately 3% compared with July 2016. July transaction days are estimated to have declined by about 4% as the Company targets higher-quality revenue. With only approximately 55% of reservations booked, August is less clear, but early indications suggest trends similar to July. September is expected to be seasonally weaker, but the Company will continue to focus on fleet capacity discipline and revenue quality.

In the International rental car segment, the terrorist event in early June does not seem to have impacted reservation trends for Europe in the third quarter 2017 peak summer season.

(1) Adjusted pre-tax income (loss), adjusted pre-tax margin, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA margin, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted diluted earnings per share are non-GAAP measures. Average vehicles, transaction days, Total RPD, Total RPU and net depreciation per unit per month are key metrics. See the accompanying Supplemental Schedules and Definitions for the reconciliations and definitions for each of these non-GAAP measures and key metrics and the reason the Company's management believes that this information is useful to investors.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND KEY METRICS - DEFINITIONS AND USE

Hertz Global is the top-level holding company and The Hertz Corporation is Hertz Global's primary operating 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 Earnings 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 (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes plus non-cash acquisition accounting charges, debt-related charges relating to the amortization and write-off of debt financing costs and debt discounts, goodwill, intangible and tangible asset impairments and write-downs and certain one-time charges and non-operational items. Adjusted pre-tax income (loss) is important because it allows management to assess operational performance of the Company's 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) from continuing operations or income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes. Adjusted pre-tax margin is adjusted pre-tax income (loss) divided by total revenues.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss)

Adjusted net income (loss) is calculated as adjusted pre-tax income (loss) less a provision for income taxes derived utilizing a combined statutory rate of 37%. The combined statutory rate is management's estimate of the Company's long-term tax rate. Adjusted net income (loss) is important to management and investors because it represents the Company's 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 the Company's competitors.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Diluted Share ("Adjusted EPS")

Adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted share is calculated as adjusted net income divided by the weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period.  Adjusted earnings (loss) per diluted share is important to management and investors because it represents a measure of the Company's 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 the Company's competitors.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow

Adjusted free cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations, including the change in restricted cash and cash equivalents related to vehicles, net revenue earning vehicle and capital asset expenditures and the net impact of vehicle financing activities. Adjusted free cash flow is important to management and investors as it provides useful information about the amount of cash available for acquisitions and the reduction of non-vehicle debt. When evaluating the Company's liquidity, investors should not consider Adjusted free cash flow in isolation of, or as a substitute for, a measure of the Company's liquidity as determined in accordance with GAAP, such as net cash provided by operating activities.

Available Car Days

Available Car Days is calculated as average vehicles multiplied by the number of days in a period.

Average Vehicles

Average Vehicles, also known as "fleet capacity", is determined using a simple average of the number of vehicles in our fleet whether owned or leased by the Company at the beginning and end of a given period. Among other things, average vehicles is used to calculate Vehicle Utilization which represents the portion of the Company's vehicles that are being utilized to generate revenue.

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 (loss) from continuing operations before net interest expense, income taxes and depreciation (which includes lease charges on revenue earning vehicles) and amortization. Corporate EBITDA, as presented herein, represents Gross EBITDA as adjusted for vehicle debt interest, vehicle depreciation and vehicle 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 metrics for internal monitoring and planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company's 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, direct vehicle and operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, which enables management and investors to evaluate the Company's business segments that are financed differently and have different depreciation characteristics and compare the Company's 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 determination of certain executive compensation.

Gross EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA, Adjusted Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin are not recognized measurements under U.S. GAAP. When evaluating the Company's operating performance, investors should not consider Gross EBITDA, Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA in isolation of, or as a substitute for, measures of the Company's financial performance as determined in accordance with GAAP, such as net income (loss) from continuing operations or income (loss) from continuing operations before income taxes.

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.

Fleet Growth

U.S. and International Rental Car segments fleet growth is defined as revenue earning vehicles expenditures, net of proceeds from disposals, plus vehicle depreciation and net vehicle financing which includes borrowings, repayments and the change in restricted cash associated with vehicles.

Net Non-Vehicle Debt

Net non-vehicle debt is calculated as non-vehicle debt as reported on the Company's balance sheet, excluding the impact of unamortized debt issue costs associated with non-vehicle debt, less cash and equivalents and restricted cash associated with the issuance of the Senior Second Priority Secured Notes. Non-vehicle debt consists of the Company's Senior Term Loan, Senior RCF, Senior Notes, Senior Second Priority Secured Notes, Promissory Notes and certain other non-vehicle indebtedness of its domestic and foreign subsidiaries.

Net non-vehicle debt is important to management and investors as it helps measure the Company's leverage. Net non-vehicle debt also assists in the evaluation of the Company's ability to service its non-vehicle debt without reference to the expense associated with the vehicle debt, which is collateralized by assets not available to lenders under the non-vehicle debt facilities.

Net Vehicle Debt

Net vehicle debt is calculated as vehicle debt as reported on the Company's balance sheet, excluding the impact of unamortized debt issue costs associated with vehicle debt, less cash and equivalents and restricted cash associated with vehicles. This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure the Company's leverage with respect to its vehicle debt.

Net Depreciation Per Unit Per Month

Net depreciation per unit per month is calculated by dividing depreciation of revenue earning vehicles and lease charges, net by the average vehicles 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 exchange rates. Management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends. 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 Vehicle Debt (used in the calculation of Net Vehicle Debt)

Restricted cash associated with vehicle debt is restricted for the purchase of revenue earning vehicles and other specified uses under the Company's vehicle debt facilities and its vehicle rental like-kind exchange program.

Total Net Debt

Total net debt is calculated as total debt less total cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash associated with vehicle debt. This measure is important to management, investors and ratings agencies as it helps measure the Company's gross leverage.

Total RPD (also referred to as "pricing")

Total RPD is calculated as total revenue less ancillary revenue associated with retail vehicle sales, divided by the total number of transaction days, with all periods adjusted to eliminate the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company's management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends. This metric is important to the Company's management and investors as it represents a measurement of the changes in underlying pricing in the vehicle rental business and encompasses the elements in vehicle rental pricing that management has the ability to control.

Total Revenue Per Unit Per Month ("Total RPU")

Total revenue per unit per month is calculated as total revenues less ancillary revenue associated with retail vehicle sales divided by the average vehicles 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 exchange rates. Management believes eliminating the effect of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates is appropriate so as not to affect the comparability of underlying trends.  This metric is important to the Company's management and investors as it provides a measure of revenue productivity relative to fleet capacity.

Transaction Days

Transaction days, also known as volume, 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.

Vehicle Utilization

Vehicle utilization is calculated by dividing total transaction days by the available car days.
