Lieff Cabraser Announces Class Action Litigation Against Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. - HTZ

The law firm of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP announces that class action litigation has been brought on behalf of those who purchased or acquired the securities of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (“Hertz” or the “Company”) (NYSE:HTZ) between February 22, 2012 and June 6, 2014, inclusive (the “Class Period”).

If you purchased or acquired Hertz securities during the Class Period, you may move the Court for appointment as lead plaintiff by no later than August 15, 2014. A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Your share of any recovery in the action will not be affected by your decision of whether to seek appointment as lead plaintiff. You may retain Lieff Cabraser, or other attorneys, as your counsel in the action.

Background on the Hertz Securities Class Litigation

The action charges Hertz and certain of its officers with violations of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Hertz is one of the largest automobile and equipment rental companies in the United States.

The complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose: (i) that Hertz had accounting errors; (ii) that, consequently, the Company’s revenue and financial results were overstated; (iii) that the Company’s financial statements were not prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (iv) that the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (v) that, due to the foregoing, the Company’s financial statements from 2011 through June 6, 2014 were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On June 6, 2014, Hertz announced that the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors had determined that Hertz’s financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 should no longer be relied upon. According to Hertz, during the preparation of the First Quarter 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2014, “errors were identified relating to Hertz’s conclusions regarding the capitalization and timing of depreciation of certain non-fleet assets, allowances for doubtful accounts in Brazil, as well as other items.” Subsequently, Hertz identified additional errors related to allowances for uncollectible amounts with respect to renter obligations for damaged vehicles and restoration obligations at the end of facility leases.
