Hertz Global Holdings Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

ESTERO, Fla., Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (OTCPK: HTZGQ) ("Hertz Global" or the "Company") today reported results for its third quarter 2020 with revenue of $1.3 billion, a net loss attributable to the Company of $222 million and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA loss of $26 million. Liquidity at the end of the third quarter was $1.1 billion.

"Our U.S. Chapter 11 process is progressing well. Recent, new funding and commitments of more than $6.0 billion allow us to continue taking steps to best position our business as a rental-car and fleet-leasing leader through the pandemic and for the future," said Paul Stone, Hertz Global's President and Chief Executive Officer.

In the third quarter, the Company made sequential progress as month-to-month revenue improvement, disciplined cost controls and prudent working capital management enabled it to maintain its liquidity position, despite the pandemic challenges impacting the travel sector. "Since Labor Day, U.S. rental volume has trended better, reflecting pent-up leisure demand and market-specific rate adjustments. As a result, our domestic revenue improved 14 points sequentially from July to September. And, October revenue has held steady at September's level," Stone said.

Throughout the third quarter, Hertz Global aggressively sold fleet into a record-high U.S. residual market, taking average operating fleet down 34% through its retail, wholesale and dealer-direct channels. As of the end of October, the Company's U.S. fleet level is well positioned to match current demand. Hertz Global's average international fleet, down 51% in the third quarter year over year, also is now sized appropriately for the current rental environment.

Based on the significant reduction in direct operating and selling, general and administrative expenses to date, the Company is increasing its annualized global cost savings target to $3.0 billion, up from $2.5 billion.

In addition to the $1.1 billion in liquidity at September 30, 2020, the Company recently closed on $1.65 billion of debtor-in-possession financing which provides support for ongoing operations, vehicle procurement and key investments in the business. The Company has also secured commitments for $4.0 billion of fleet financing which, if approved by the court, will enable the Company to meet its forecasted U.S. fleet needs through 2021. In October, the Company closed on a fleet financing facility of up to $400 million for its Donlen leasing and fleet management operations.

"The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been tough on everyone. But our employees have met the challenges head on, adapted processes and continued to put our customers' safety and satisfaction first," said Stone. "Last month, we couldn't have been prouder to have Hertz awarded No. 1 in Customer Satisfaction for Rental Cars by J.D. Power for a second consecutive year. It's a true testament to our preferred position among rental car customers and our team's commitment and dedication to our Company."

Total U.S. RAC revenues were down 56%. Intra-quarter, the Company saw steady year-over-year improving trends with July revenue down 61%, August down 58% and September down 47%.

Off-airport revenues comprised 48% of total revenue for the third quarter 2020 versus 32% in the prior year. Overall volume in the third quarter declined year over year due to the pandemic-related impact on travel, especially to corporate customers. However, on a sequential quarterly basis, off-airport volume improved 12 points compared with the 2020 second quarter as leisure travel picked up and delivery services rentals continued to grow. Sequential quarterly year-over-year airport revenue improved 16 points, reflecting some recovery in airline travel from the second-quarter 2020 trough and a higher mix of local rentals at the airport.

Depreciation Per Unit Per Month benefited from sales of used vehicles into a record-high residual market during the quarter. The Company disposed of 133,000 vehicles, 72% more than the third quarter 2019.

Direct operating and selling, general and administration expenses declined 43% year over year as the Company aggressively adjusted costs in response to pandemic-level demand.

On a sequential quarterly basis, the Company nearly recouped its second quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA loss in the third quarter through improved rental demand, lower vehicle depreciation and incremental cost savings.

Total International RAC revenues were down 64% year-over-year on a constant currency basis. Off airport revenues comprised 61% of total revenues for the segment versus 36% for the third quarter 2019. The mix shift in volume from airport rentals to longer-length, lower-priced off-airport rentals contributed to a 13% decrease in Total RPD versus third quarter 2019. While down, both airport and off airport volumes reflected sequential improvement compared to the year-over-year results reported for the second quarter 2020.

Depreciation Per Unit Per Month benefited from strong residual values across all key markets.

Direct operating and selling, general and administration expenses declined 47% year over year as the Company proactively reduced costs in response to pandemic-level demand.

Actions taken in the third quarter to reduce vehicle inventories and operating expenses helped to narrow the Adjusted EBITDA loss from the second quarter 2020.

RESULTS OF THE HERTZ CORPORATION
________________________________________________________________

The GAAP and  non-GAAP profitability metrics for Hertz Global's operating subsidiary, The Hertz Corporation ("Hertz"), are materially the same as those for Hertz Global for the third quarter 2020 and 2019, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020 Hertz, posted the same revenues as the Company, however its pre-tax loss was $1.8 billion versus the Company's pre-tax loss of $1.7 billion. The difference between Hertz's and the Company's GAAP results is primarily due to Hertz's write off in the second quarter of 2020 of $133 million due from the Company. The non-GAAP profitability metrics for Hertz are materially the same as those for Hertz Global.

FINANCIAL REORGANIZATION
_______________________________________________________

As previously announced, on May 22, 2020, Hertz Global and Hertz (together, the "Companies") and certain of their direct and indirect subsidiaries in the United States and Canada filed voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (the "Reorganization").

The Reorganization provides the time to put in place a new, stronger financial foundation to move successfully through the COVID-19 pandemic and to better position the Companies for the future. Throughout the Reorganization process, all of Hertz's businesses globally, including its Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty, Firefly, Hertz Car Sales, and Donlen subsidiaries, are open and serving customers. All reservations, promotional offers, vouchers, and customer and loyalty programs, including rewards points, are expected to continue as usual.

Information related to the Reorganization is included in the Hertz Global and Hertz Form 10-Qs for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2020 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and on the Hertz website, IR.Hertz.com.

NON-GAAP MEASURES AND KEY METRICS
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Hertz Global is the top-level holding company that indirectly wholly owns The Hertz Corporation (together, the "Company"). The term "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Adjusted EBITDA is the Company's segment measure of profitability and complies with GAAP when used in that context.

NON-GAAP MEASURES

Non-GAAP measures are not recognized measurements under GAAP. When evaluating the Company's operating performance or liquidity, investors should not consider non-GAAP measures in isolation of, superior to, or as a substitute for measures of the Company's financial performance as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share ("Adjusted Diluted EPS")

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) represents income or loss attributable to the Company as adjusted to eliminate the impact of GAAP income tax, debt-related charges and losses, restructuring and restructuring related charges, intangible and tangible asset impairments and write-downs, information technology and finance transformation costs, non-cash acquisition accounting charges, reorganization items, pre-reorganization and non-debtor financing charges and certain other miscellaneous items on a pre-tax basis. Adjusted Net Income (Loss) includes a provision (benefit) for income taxes derived utilizing a combined statutory rate. The combined statutory rate is management's estimate of the Company's long-term tax rate. Its most comparable GAAP measure is net income (loss) attributable to the Company.

Adjusted Diluted EPS represents Adjusted Net Income (Loss) on a per diluted share basis using the weighted-average number of diluted shares outstanding for the period. Its most comparable GAAP measure is diluted earnings (loss) per share.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) and Adjusted Diluted EPS are important to management because they allow management to assess operational performance of the Company's business, exclusive of the items mentioned above that are not operational in nature or comparable to those of the Company's competitors.

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA and Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA represents  income or loss attributable to the Company as adjusted to eliminate the impact of GAAP income tax, non-vehicle depreciation and amortization, net non-vehicle debt interest, vehicle debt-related charges and losses, restructuring and restructuring related charges, goodwill, intangible and tangible asset impairments and write-downs, information technology and finance transformation costs, reorganization items, pre-reorganization and non-debtor financing charges and certain other miscellaneous items. Adjusted Corporate EBITDA Margin is calculated as the ratio of Adjusted Corporate EBITDA to total revenues.

Management uses these measures as operating performance metrics for internal monitoring and planning purposes, including the preparation of the Company's annual operating budget and monthly operating reviews, and to facilitate analysis of investment decisions, profitability and performance trends. These measures enable management and investors to isolate the effects on profitability of operating metrics most meaningful to the business of renting and leasing vehicles. They also allow management to assess the performance of the entire business on the same basis as its reportable segments. Its most comparable GAAP measure is net income (loss) attributable to the Company.

KEY METRICS

Available Car Days

Available Car Days represents Average Vehicles multiplied by the number of days in a period.

Average Vehicles ("Fleet Capacity" or "Capacity")

Average Vehicles is determined using a simple average of the number of vehicles in the fleet whether owned or leased by the Company at the beginning and end of a given period.

Depreciation Per Unit Per Month

Depreciation Per Unit Per Month represents the amount of average depreciation expense and lease charges per vehicle per month, exclusive of the impacts of 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 management and investors as it is reflective of how the Company is managing the costs of its vehicles and facilitates in comparison with other participants in the vehicle rental industry.

Total Rental Revenues

Total Rental Revenues represents total revenues less ancillary retail vehicle sales revenues, 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 management and investors as it represents a measurement that excludes the impact of ancillary revenues resulting from vehicle sales and facilitates in comparisons with other participants in the vehicle rental industry.

Total Revenue Per Transaction Day ("Total RPD"or "RPD"; also referred to as "pricing")

Total RPD represents the ratio of Total Rental Revenues to Transaction Days. This metric is important to 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" or "Total RPU Per Month")

Total RPU Per Month represents the amount of average Total Rental Revenues per vehicle per month. This metric is important to management and investors as it provides a measure of revenue productivity relative to fleet capacity, or asset efficiency.

Transaction Days ("Days"; also referred to as "volume")

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. This metric is important to management and investors as it represents the number of revenue generating days.

Vehicle Utilization ("Utilization")

Vehicle Utilization represents the ratio of Transaction Days to Available Car Days. This metric is important to management and investors as it is the measurement of the proportion of vehicles that are being used to generate revenues relative to fleet capacity.
