Hertz Global And Dollar Thrifty's Management Host Joint Conference Call (Transcript)

The tender offer has not yet commenced, and this call is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of Dollar Thrifty's common stock. At the time of the tender offer is commenced, Hertz will file a tender offer statement and Dollar Thrifty will file a solicitation recommendation statement on Schedule 14D-9 with the SEC. Investors and stockholders of Dollar Thrifty are urged to read all documents carefully and in their entirety when they become available because they will contain important information about the proposed transaction. These documents will be available for free at the SEC's website, sec.gov. Copies of Hertz's filings with the SEC may be obtained from Hertz's website at hertz.com/investorrelations or by directing a request to Hertz at (201) 307-2100. Copies of Dollar Thrifty's filings with the SEC will be available free of charge on Dollar Thrifty's website at dtag.com or by contacting Dollar Thrifty's Investor Relations Department at (918) 669-2119. Additional information concerning these statements is contained in the company's joint press release regarding the acquisition issued yesterday and in the Risk Factors and Forward-Looking Statements section of the companies' respective 2011 Form 10-K and 2012 quarterly report. Copies of these filings are available from the SEC, the Hertz's and Dollar Thrifty's websites or the companies' respective Investor Relations departments.

I would like to remind you that today's call is being recorded and is also being made available for replay starting at 12:30 p.m. Eastern today, running through September 10, 2012.

I would now like to turn the call over to our host, Leslie Hunziker. Please go ahead.
