Pursuant to the Plan, Hertz is issuing one preferred share purchase right for each current share of common stock outstanding at the close of business on January 9, 2014. Initially, these rights will not be exercisable and will trade with the shares of Hertz's common stock.Under the Rights Plan, the rights will generally become exercisable only if a person or group acquires beneficial ownership of 10 percent or more of the Company's common stock (15 percent or more in the case of passive institutional investors filing on Schedule 13G as described in the Rights Plan). In that situation, each holder of a right (other than such person or members of such group, whose rights will become void and will not be exercisable) will be entitled to purchase, at the then-current exercise price, additional shares of common stock having a value of twice the exercise price of the right.
