Hertz (HTZ) Completes Dollar Thrifty (DTG) Acquisition

November 20, 2012 7:06 AM EST
Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) announced today that it has successfully completed its previously announced acquisition of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE: DTG). As a result of the transaction, Dollar Thrifty has become a wholly owned subsidiary of Hertz.

Hertz completed a tender offer in which it purchased approximately 99.6% of the shares of Dollar Thrifty common stock then outstanding at $87.50 per share in cash.

Hertz subsequently acquired the remaining shares of Dollar Thrifty common stock by means of a short-form merger in which such shares were converted into the right to receive the same $87.50 per share in cash that will be paid in the tender offer. In order to accomplish the short-form merger, Hertz exercised its "top-up" option to purchase additional shares of Dollar Thrifty common stock directly from Dollar Thrifty. Dollar Thrifty's common stock will no longer be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.

On November 20, 2012, Hertz posted to its website a summary of the divestiture agreement that Hertz entered into with the Federal Trade Commission in connection with the acquisition of Dollar Thrifty, a list of related frequently asked questions and PowerPoint slides.
