PARK RIDGE, N.J., March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) (the "Company") announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation ("Hertz"), has entered into an agreement to sell $250 million aggregate principal amount of 4.250% Senior Notes due 2018 (the "Notes") in a private offering (the "Offering") exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Offering is expected to close on or about March 28, 2013, subject to customary closing conditions.
The Notes will pay interest semi-annually in arrears. The Notes will be guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by the domestic subsidiaries of Hertz that guarantee its senior credit facilities from time to time.
Hertz intends to use the net proceeds from the issuance of the Notes to replenish a portion of its liquidity after having dividended approximately $467.2 million in available liquidity to the Company, which the Company used to repurchase approximately 23 million of the approximately 60 million shares of the Company's common stock sold in an offering by certain of the Company's stockholders on March 12, 2013.This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Notes (and the guarantees of the Notes) or any other securities, nor will there be any sale of the Notes or any other securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state. The Notes (and the guarantees of the Notes) will be issued in reliance on the exemption from the registration requirements provided by Rule 144A under the Securities Act and, outside of the United States, only to non-U.S. investors pursuant to Regulation S under the Securities Act. None of the Notes and such guarantees have been registered under the Securities Act or any state securities laws, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws.
