CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Certain statements contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus include “forward-looking statements.” Forward-looking statements include information concerning our liquidity and our possible or assumed future results of operations, including descriptions of our business strategies. These statements often include words such as “believe,” “expect,” “project,” “potential,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “seek,” “will,” “may,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “forecasts” or similar expressions. These statements are based on certain assumptions that we have made in light of our experience in the industry as well as our perceptions of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors we believe are appropriate in these circumstances. We believe these judgments are reasonable, but you should understand that these statements are not guarantees of performance or results and our actual results could differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements due to a variety of important factors, both positive and negative.

Our Business
We operate our vehicle rental business globally primarily through the Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty brands from company-owned, licensee and franchisee locations in the United States (“U.S.”), Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and New Zealand. We also sell vehicles through Hertz Car Sales and operate the Firefly vehicle rental brand and the Hertz 24/7 car sharing business in international markets. We offer multiple brands in order to provide customers a full range of rental services at different price points, levels of service, offerings and products. Each of our brands generally maintains separate airport counters, reservations, marketing and other customer contact activities. We achieve synergies across our brands by, among other things, utilizing a single fleet and fleet management team and combined vehicle maintenance, vehicle cleaning and back office functions, where applicable.
Our top-tier brand, Hertz, is one of the most recognized brands in the world offering premium services that define the industry. This is consistent with numerous published best-in-class vehicle rental awards that we have won both in the U.S. and internationally over many years, including our ranking in 2019 and 2020 of #1 in Customer Satisfaction by J.D. Power. Our go-to-market communications showcase our promise and reputation for quality and customer service. We have a number of innovative offerings, such as Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, Hertz Ultimate Choice and unique vehicles offered through our specialty collections. We continue to maintain our position as a premier provider of vehicle rental services through an intense focus on service, loyalty, quality and product innovation.
Our smart value brand, Dollar, is the choice for financially-focused travelers looking for a dependable car at a price they can afford. The Dollar brand’s main focus is serving the airport vehicle rental market, comprised of family, leisure and small business travelers. Dollar’s tagline of “We never forget whose dollar it is” indicates the brand’s mission to provide a reliable rental experience at a price that works. Dollar operates primarily through company-owned locations in the U.S. and Canada. We also globally license to independent franchisees which operate as a part of the Dollar brand system and have company-owned Dollar locations in certain countries.
Our deep value brand, Thrifty, is the brand for savvy travelers who enjoy the “thrill of the hunt” to find a good deal. The Thrifty brand’s main focus is serving the airport vehicle rental market, comprised of leisure travelers. Thrifty’s tagline “The Absolute Best Car for Your Money” indicates the brand’s focus on being the rental company that puts you in control of where you splurge and where you save. Thrifty operates primarily through company-owned locations in the U.S. and Canada. We also globally license to independent franchisees which operate as part of the Thrifty brand system and have company-owned Thrifty locations in certain countries.
Internationally, we also offer our Firefly brand which is a deep value brand for price conscious leisure travelers. We have Firefly locations servicing local area airports in select international leisure markets where other deep value brands have a significant presence.
Chapter 11 Emergence
On May 22, 2020, the Company, The Hertz Corporation, and certain of their direct and indirect subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada (collectively, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions for relief (collectively, the “Petitions”) under chapter 11 (“Chapter 11”) of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The Chapter 11

cases (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) were jointly administered for procedural purposes only under the caption In re The Hertz Corporation, et al., Case No. 20-11218 (MFW).
The Debtors filed with the Bankruptcy Court a proposed Third Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization, dated as of May 12, 2021 (the “Proposed Plan”), which embodied the plan proposal of the plan sponsor group comprised of, among others, (a) one or more funds associated with Knighthead Capital Management, LLC (“Knighthead”), (b) one or more funds associated with Certares Opportunities LLC (“Certares”) and (c) investment funds, separate accounts, and other entities owned (in whole or in part), controlled, or managed by Apollo Capital Management, L.P. or its affiliates (collectively, “Apollo” and, together with Knighthead and Certares, the “Plan Sponsors”). The Proposed Plan amended and superseded prior versions of the plan of reorganization filed by the Debtors in the Chapter 11 Cases. In connection with the Proposed Plan, the Debtors entered into a Plan Support Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2021 (the “PSA”), with the Plan Sponsors, pursuant to which the parties thereto agreed to take certain actions to support the prosecution and consummation of the Proposed Plan on the terms and conditions set forth in the PSA. The Debtors also entered into an Equity Purchase and Commitment Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2021 (the “EPCA”), with the Plan Sponsors, providing for the purchase or otherwise syndication of $1.5 billion in Preferred Stock (as defined below) by Apollo and certain syndicated investors and $2.781 billion in common stock by the Plan Sponsors. In addition, the Plan Sponsors and certain other parties (collectively, the “Backstop Parties”) agreed to backstop the rights offering contemplated by the Proposed Plan (the “Rights Offering”) totaling $1.635 billion of common stock which was offered first to eligible holders of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Old Common Stock”), existing prior to the Reorganization Effective Date (as defined below) and then, if not fully subscribed, to certain eligible holders of unsecured funded debt claims.
On June 10, 2021, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming the Second Modified Third Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization of the Debtors (the “Plan”), which incorporated the Proposed Plan as amended by the Debtors (with the consent of the Plan Sponsors). On June 30, 2021 (the “Reorganization Effective Date”), the Plan became effective in accordance with its terms and the Debtors emerged from the Chapter 11 Cases.
In accordance with the Plan, all of our equity interests existing as of the Reorganization Effective Date were cancelled on such date, with the holders of Old Common Stock receiving (1) cash in the amount of $1.53 per share and (2) their pro rata share of (a) common stock representing 3% of the common stock of the reorganized Company, subject to dilution on account of the Public Warrants (as defined below) and a new management equity incentive plan to be established, and (b) either (x) an aggregate of 89,049,029 Public Warrants or (y) for eligible stockholders, rights to subscribe for shares of common stock pursuant to the Rights Offering described below.
The 89,049,029 Public Warrants were issued pursuant to a warrant agreement (the “Warrant Agreement”), among the Company, Computershare Inc. and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., collectively as warrant agent. The Public Warrants are exercisable from the date of issuance until June 30, 2051, at which time all unexercised Public Warrants will expire and the rights of the holders of such expired Public Warrants will terminate. The Public Warrants have an initial exercise price of $13.80, which is subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of any payments of cash dividends and certain dilutive events.
Under the Rights Offering, eligible holders of Old Common Stock and certain eligible holders of our then-existing senior indebtedness could purchase up to $1.6 billion of shares of our common stock at a purchase price of $10.00 per share, with the Backstop Parties agreeing to purchase all unsubscribed shares. The final expiration date for the Rights Offering occurred on June 15, 2021, with eligible participants subscribing to purchase 127,362,114 shares, with the Backstop Parties to purchase the remaining 36,137,887 shares. We closed the Rights Offering on the Reorganization Effective Date. Pursuant to the terms of the EPCA, the Backstop Parties received a backstop fee equal in amount of $163.5 million, payable in shares of common stock valued at $10.00 per share, which resulted in the issuance of 16,350,000 shares of common stock.

As a result of these Plan transactions, on the Reorganization Effective Date, we issued 471,102,462 shares of our common stock as follows:

14,133,024 shares to existing stockholders;

277,119,438 shares to Plan Sponsors pursuant to the EPCA;

127,362,114 shares to eligible participants pursuant to the Rights Offering; and

52,487,886 shares to the Backstop Parties pursuant to the EPCA.
In addition, on the Reorganization Effective Date, in accordance with the Plan, we issued 1,500,000 shares of preferred stock of the Company, redeemable at the Company’s option (the “Preferred Stock”), to Apollo and certain syndicated investors and received gross proceeds of $1.5 billion, less a 2% upfront discount and stock issuance fees.
See “Capitalization,” “Description of Capital Stock” and “Shares Eligible for Future Sale” for additional information.

The reconciliations to net income (loss), the most comparable consolidated U.S. GAAP measure are presented below:

Adjusted Corporate EBITDA is an important non-GAAP measure to management because it allows management to assess the operational performance of our business, exclusive of certain items, and allows management to assess the performance of the entire business on the same basis as the segment measure of profitability. Management believes that it is important to investors for the same reasons it is important to management and because it allows them to assess our operational performance on the same basis that management uses internally. Adjusted EBITDA, the segment measure of profitability and accordingly a GAAP measure, is calculated exclusive of certain items which are largely consistent with those used in the calculation of Adjusted Corporate EBITDA. This information should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. There are limitations to these non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to the potential differences in methods of calculation and items or events being adjusted. In addition, other companies may use different measures to evaluated their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures as tools for comparison.

Transaction Days represents 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. It is therefore possible for a vehicle to attain more than one Transaction Day in a 24-hour period. Transaction Days is a measure of revenue generating days (“volume”) and is a component of Total RPD and Vehicle Utilization.
(6)
Total Revenue Per Transaction Day (“Total RPD” and also referred to as “pricing”) 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.

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 reflects how effectively the Company is managing the costs of its vehicles and facilitates comparisons with other participants in the vehicle rental industry.

RISK FACTORS
Investing in our common stock involves risk. If any of the risks described below or in any document incorporated by reference herein actually occurs, our business, financial condition and results of operations would likely suffer. In that event, the market price of our common stock could decline and an investor in our common stock could lose all or part of their investment. You should consider carefully all of the information set forth in this prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference herein, and, in particular, the risk factors described in the 2020 Form 10-K and the Q2 2021 Form 10-Q filed with the SEC, which is incorporated by reference in this prospectus. The risks described in any document incorporated by reference herein are not the only ones we face, but are considered to be the most material. There may be other unknown or unpredictable economic, business, competitive, regulatory or other factors that could have material adverse effects on our future results. Past financial performance may not be a reliable indicator of future performance and historical trends should not be used to anticipate results or trends in future periods.
Risks Related to Our Emergence from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
We recently emerged from bankruptcy, which could adversely affect our business and relationships.
Our having filed for bankruptcy, notwithstanding our recent emergence from the Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings, could adversely affect our business and relationships with customers, vendors, royalty or working interest owners, contractors, employees or suppliers. Due to uncertainties, many risks exist, including the following:

the ability to attract, motivate, and/or retain key executives and employees may be adversely affected;

employees may be more easily attracted to other employment opportunities; and

competitors may take business away from us, and our ability to retain customers may be negatively impacted.
The occurrence of one or more of these events could have a material and adverse effect on our operations, financial condition and reputation and we cannot assure you that having been subject to bankruptcy proceedings will not adversely affect our operations in the future.
Upon our emergence from bankruptcy, our Board of Directors was reconstituted and may implement changes in our business strategy that could affect the scope and results of our operations.
Our corporate business strategy is subject to continued development, evaluation and implementation by our management and Board of Directors. In connection with the effectiveness of the Plan in the Chapter 11 Cases, the Company’s Board of Directors was reconstituted, and the Board is now made up of nine directors, of which eight directors did not serve on the former Board. We may also add up to two additional members in the future. The new directors have different backgrounds, experiences and perspectives from those individuals who previously served on the board of directors of the Company at the time of the commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases and, thus, may have different views on the issues that will determine our future, including our strategic plans and priorities. The Board of Directors, as reconstituted, together with our interim CEO, may determine, from time to time, to implement changes in our business strategy which may affect our operations. There is, however, no guarantee that the strategic initiatives and plans, whether current or future, of the Board of Directors will be implemented in a timely manner or at all and, consequently, there is no guarantee that the operational and financial objectives of the reconstituted Board of Directors will be achieved in a timely manner or at all.
The ability to attract and retain key personnel is critical to the success of our business and may be affected by our emergence from bankruptcy.
The success of our business depends on key personnel. The ability to attract and retain these key personnel may be affected by our emergence from bankruptcy, the uncertainties currently facing the business and changes we may make to the organizational structure to adjust to changing circumstances. Any potential delays in adopting our management incentive plan and other executive benefits and compensation may make it difficult to retain key personnel and we may need to enter into retention or other arrangements
 
10

 
that could be costly to maintain. If executives, managers or other key personnel resign, retire or are terminated, or their service is otherwise interrupted, we may not be able to replace them in a timely manner and we could experience significant declines in productivity.
Our ability to utilize our net operating loss carryforwards (“NOLs”) may be limited as a result of our emergence from bankruptcy.
In general, Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “IRC”), provides an annual limitation with respect to the ability of a corporation to utilize its NOLs and other tax attributes, as well as certain built-in-losses (“BILs”), against future taxable income in the event of a change in ownership. Our emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings resulted in a change in ownership for purposes of the IRC Section 382. The Company is performing an analysis to determine the potential impact this ownership change may have on our future ability to utilize our NOLs, other tax attributes, and BILs. Limitations imposed on our ability to use NOLs, other attributes, and BILs to offset future taxable income may cause U.S. federal income taxes to be paid earlier than otherwise would be paid if such limitations were not in effect and could cause such NOLs and other attributes to expire unused. Similar rules and limitations apply for state income tax purposes.
We have a substantial amount of debt, which could impair our financial condition.
We have a significant amount of indebtedness. As of June 30, 2021, we had a total indebtedness of approximately $8,549 million, including $7,035 million of vehicle related debt and $1,514 million of non-vehicle debt. In addition, we would be able to incur an additional approximately $2,255 million of indebtedness under one or more incremental facilities, subject to certain thresholds as described in the Credit Agreement, including estimated available borrowing capacity of $1,255 million under the Revolving Loan Facility. Our substantial level of indebtedness increases the risk that we may be unable to generate cash sufficient to pay amounts due in respect of our indebtedness. Our substantial indebtedness could have other important consequences to you and significant effects on our business. For example, it could:

limit our ability to borrow additional amounts to fund working capital, capital expenditures, debt service requirements, execution of our business strategy or acquisitions and other purposes;

require us to dedicate a substantial portion of our cash flow from operations to pay principal and interest on our debt, which would reduce the funds available to us for other purposes;

make us more vulnerable to adverse changes in general economic, industry and competitive conditions, in government regulation and in our business;

expose us to risks inherent in interest rate fluctuations because some of our borrowings are at variable rates of interest, which could result in higher interest expenses in the event of increases in interest rates; and

make it more difficult to satisfy our obligations.
Our ability to satisfy and manage our debt obligations depends on our ability to generate cash flow and on overall financial market conditions. To some extent, this is subject to prevailing economic and competitive conditions and to certain financial, business and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. Our business may not generate sufficient cash flow from operations to permit us to pay principal, premium, if any, or interest on our debt obligations. If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow from operations to service our debt obligations and meet our other cash needs, we may be forced to reduce or delay capital expenditures, sell or curtail assets or operations, seek additional capital, or seek to restructure or refinance our indebtedness. If we must sell or curtail our assets or operations, it may negatively affect our ability to generate revenue.
Risks Related to Our Common Stock and This Offering
A significant portion of our total issued and outstanding common stock is eligible to be sold into the market in the near future, which could cause the market price of our common stock to drop significantly, even if our business is doing well.
Sales of a substantial number of shares of our common stock in the public market, or the perception in the market that the holders of a large number of shares of common stock intend to sell, could reduce the
 
11

 
market price of our common stock. On the Reorganization Effective Date, we issued 14,133,024 shares of common stock pro rata to the holders of Old Common Stock, which shares are freely tradable. In addition, we issued an aggregate of 456,969,438 shares pursuant to the EPCA and the Rights Offering that are “restricted securities” under Rule 144 and, assuming we remain current in our reporting obligations under the Exchange Act, may be sold under Rule 144 beginning on December 30, 2021, subject to lock-up restrictions and other limitations. Only those shares that are held by our directors and officers or the selling stockholders in this offering will be subject to the lock-up agreements described in “Underwriting.” Accordingly, an additional           shares of common stock held by non-affiliates and an additional           shares of common stock held by affiliates may be sold as soon as December 30, 2021, subject to restrictions on volume and manner of sale in the case of affiliates. See “Shares Eligible for Future Sale” for a more detailed description of the restrictions on selling our common stock after this offering.
In the future, we may also issue additional shares of common stock if we need to raise capital or make acquisitions, which could constitute a material portion of our then-issued and outstanding common stock. Any such issuances may dilute your ownership interest in the Company and have an adverse impact on the price of our common stock.
There has been a limited trading market for our common stock and the market price of our common stock may be volatile, which could cause the value of your investment to decline.
Since the Reorganization Effective Date, only the shares of common stock issued pro rata to the holders of Old Common Stock, which represent 3% of our outstanding common stock, have been available for trading on the OTC Bulletin Board and there has been a low volume of trading in our common stock. We cannot predict the extent to which investor interest in our Company will lead to the development of a more robust trading market on the Nasdaq Global Select Market (“Nasdaq”) or otherwise how active that market may become. The trading price on Nasdaq may bear no relation to the historical prices on the OTC Bulletin Board. There may not be greater liquidity in the trading market for our common stock in the future. If there is limited liquidity in the trading market for our common stock, a sale of a large number of shares of our common stock could adversely affect the market price of our common stock. Additionally, in the past, securities class action litigation has often been initiated against companies following periods of volatility in their stock price. This type of litigation could result in substantial costs and divert our management’s attention and resources, and could also require us to make substantial payments to satisfy judgments or to settle litigation.
Numerous factors, including many over which we have no control, may have a significant impact on the market price of our common stock. These risks include those described or referred to in this “Risk Factors” section and in the other documents incorporated herein by reference as well as, among other things:

our operating and financial performance and prospects;

our ability to repay our debt;

our access to financial and capital markets to refinance our debt or replace the existing credit facilities;

investor perceptions of us and the industry and markets in which we operate;

our dividend policy;

future sales of equity or equity-related securities;

announcements by third parties of significant claims or proceedings against us;

changes in, or results that vary from, earnings estimates or buy/sell recommendations by analysts; and

general financial, domestic, economic and other market conditions.
All of these factors could materially adversely affect the price of our common stock. The market price of our common stock may decline below the initial offer price, and you may not be able to sell your shares at or above the price you paid in this offering, or at all.
 
12

 
If securities or industry analysts do not publish or cease publishing research or reports about us, our business or our market, or if they change their recommendations regarding our common stock adversely, the price and trading volume of our common stock could decline.
The trading market for our common stock is influenced by the research and reports that industry or securities analysts publish about us, our business, our market or our competitors. If any of the securities or industry analysts who cover us or may cover us in the future change their recommendation regarding our common stock adversely, or provide more favorable relative recommendations about our competitors, the price of our common stock would likely decline. If any securities or industry analyst who covers us or may cover us in the future were to cease coverage of us or fail to regularly publish reports on us, we could lose visibility in the financial markets, which in turn could cause the price or trading volume of our common stock to decline.
Anti-takeover provisions in our charter documents and under Delaware law could make an acquisition of us more difficult, limit attempts by our stockholders to replace or remove our current management and may negatively affect the market price of our common stock.
Provisions in our Certificate of Incorporation (as defined herein) and Bylaws (as defined herein) may have the effect of delaying or preventing a change of control or changes in our management. Our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws include provisions that:

do not provide cumulative voting in the election of directors, which limits the ability of minority stockholders to elect director candidates;

provide for a classified board of directors with three-year staggered terms, which could delay the ability of stockholders to change the membership of a majority of the Board;

allow for removal of directors only for cause;

allow only the Board to fill a vacancy created by the expansion of the Board or the resignation, death, retirement, disqualification or removal of a director, which prevents stockholders from being able to fill vacancies on the Board, except that whenever the holders of one or more series of the Preferred Stock have the right, voting separately by class or series, to nominate or elect one or more directors, the removal of such directors is governed by the terms of such series of the Preferred Stock as set forth in our Certificate of Incorporation;

establish an advance notice procedure for stockholder proposals to be brought before a meeting of stockholders, including proposed nominations of persons for election to the board of directors;

prohibit stockholder action by written consent, which forces stockholder action to be taken at an annual or special meeting;

prohibit stockholders from calling a special meeting unless one or more stockholders holding at least 25% of the voting power of all our shares demand such special meeting by written consent, which may delay the ability of stockholders to force consideration of a proposal or to take action, including the removal of directors; and

allow for our authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock to be available for future issuance without stockholder approval, subject to the rules and regulations of any applicable stock exchange or similar rules.
These provisions may frustrate or prevent any attempts by our stockholders to replace or remove our current management by making it more difficult for stockholders to replace members of our board of directors, which is responsible for appointing the members of our management. In addition, we have elected not to be governed by Section 203 of the DGCL (as defined herein), which generally prohibits a Delaware corporation from engaging in any of a broad range of business combinations with a stockholder owning 15% or more of our outstanding voting stock, unless the stockholder has held the stock for a period of at least three years.
 
13

 
The choice of forum provision in our Certificate of Incorporation could limit our stockholders’ ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers or colleagues.
Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that, unless we consent in writing to an alternative forum, to the fullest extent permitted by law, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Court of Chancery”) is the sole and exclusive forum for any stockholder to bring any state law claim for (1) any derivative action or proceeding brought on our behalf, (2) any action asserting a claim of a breach of fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer, employee, or agent of the Company to us or to our stockholders, (3) any action asserting a claim against us arising pursuant to the DGCL, our Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, (4) any action or proceeding as to which the DGCL confers jurisdiction on the Court of Chancery, and (5) any action asserting a claim against us that is governed by the internal affairs doctrine. In addition, the choice of forum provision provides that, unless the Company consents in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, claims brought under the Securities Act must be brought exclusively in the federal district courts of the United States. The choice of forum provision may limit a stockholder’s ability to bring a claim in a judicial forum that it finds favorable for disputes with us or our directors, officers or other colleagues, which may discourage such lawsuits against us and our directors, officers and other colleagues. Alternatively, if a court were to find the choice of forum provision contained in our Certificate of Incorporation to be inapplicable or unenforceable in an action, we may incur additional costs associated with resolving such action in other jurisdictions, which could adversely affect our business and financial condition.

USE OF PROCEEDS
We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of our common stock by the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders will not be responsible for any offering expenses other than the underwriting discounts and commissions.
 
15

 
DIVIDEND POLICY
We do not expect to pay dividends on our common stock for the foreseeable future. After the completion of this offering, we anticipate that all of our earnings, if any, in the foreseeable future will be used in the operation and growth of our business. Any future determination to pay dividends will be at the discretion of our board of directors and will depend upon, among other factors, our results of operations, financial condition, limitations or restrictions pursuant to our outstanding shares of Preferred Stock, capital requirements and contractual restrictions.

On the Reorganization Effective Date and pursuant to the Plan, we entered into a credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”) providing for (i) a term loan “B” facility for term loans (the “Term B Loans”), (ii) a term loan “C” facility for term loans (the “Term C Loans” and, together with the Term B Loans, the “Term Loans”) to cash collateralize letters of and (iii) a revolving credit facility (“Revolving Loan Facility”) for revolving loans and letters of credit. In addition, we may request one or more incremental facilities up to an aggregate amount of the sum of (i) a fixed dollar basket equal to the greater of $635 million and 100% of LTM Consolidated EBITDA (as such term is defined in the Credit Agreement) plus (ii) a basket equal to the aggregate amount of voluntary prepayments and commitment reductions of certain indebtedness, in each case secured on a pari passu basis with the Term Loans and Revolving Loan Facility plus (iii) a leverage-based basket subject to compliance with leverage ratios set forth in the Credit Agreement.
(4)
As of June 30, 2021, we had no borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Loan Facility and we had estimated available borrowings of $1,255 million.
(5)
On the Reorganization Effective Date, in accordance with the Plan and the Warrant Agreement, we issued 89,049,029 Public Warrants with an initial exercise price of $13.80 per Public Warrant, subject to certain conditions. Each Public Warrant will entitle the holders to receive one share of common stock. The Public Warrants have a thirty-year term and are exercisable from the date of issuance until June 30, 2051, at which time any unexercised Public Warrants will expire, and the rights of the holders to purchase our common stock will terminate. The exercise price of the Public Warrants is subject to adjustment from time to time upon any payment of cash dividends relating to our common stock and the occurrence of certain dilutive events as described in the Warrant Agreement.
We account for the Public Warrants in accordance with the provisions of ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, under which the Public Warrants meet the definition of a freestanding financial instrument. Although these are publicly traded warrants, they are classified as liabilities due to certain settlement provisions that are only applicable in the event of change of control (as defined by the Warrant Agreement). The Public Warrants are recorded at fair value in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto in the Q2 2021 Form 10-Q, which are incorporated by reference herein.

The number of shares of common stock outstanding after this offering is based on 471,528,799 shares of our common stock outstanding as of October 7, 2021 and excludes:

88,891,915 shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of warrants outstanding as of October 7, 2021 to purchase shares of common stock at an exercise price of $13.80 per share that expire on June 30, 2051; and

shares that may be issued pursuant to the MEIP for 10% of the common stock of the reorganized Company that was approved by the Bankruptcy Court. We anticipate the approval and implementation of the MEIP, but as of the date of this prospectus, the MEIP has not been established.

PRINCIPAL STOCKHOLDERS
The following table sets forth information as of September 30, 2021 regarding the beneficial ownership of our common stock by:

each of our directors;

each of our named executive officers;

each holder of more than 5% of our outstanding shares of common stock; and

all of our directors and executive officers as a group.
Beneficial ownership for the purposes of this table is determined in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC. These rules generally provide that a person is the beneficial owner of securities if such person has or shares the power to vote or direct the voting thereof, or to dispose or direct the disposition thereof or has the right to acquire such powers within 60 days. Common stock issuable upon exercise of warrants that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of September 30, 2021 is deemed to be outstanding and beneficially owned by the person holding the warrants. These shares, however, are not deemed outstanding for the purposes of computing the percentage ownership of any other person. Percentage of beneficial ownership is based on the number of shares of common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2021. Except as disclosed in the footnotes to this table, we believe that each stockholder identified in the table possesses sole voting and investment power over all shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by the stockholder.
All percentages and share amounts are approximate based on current information available to us. The information available to us may be incomplete.
Unless otherwise noted, the address for each person listed on the table is c/o Hertz Global Holdings, Inc., 8501 Williams Road, Estero, Florida, 33928.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Registration Rights Agreement
Pursuant to a Registration Rights Agreement, dated as of June 30, 2021, among Hertz and the holders party thereto, after an initial public offering (which is described in the Registration Rights Agreement as an action pursuant to which shares of common stock are listed on a national securities exchange in the United States) and upon a request of any Demand Holder (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement), the Company is required to file a long-form registration statement on Form S-1 or, if available, a short-form registration statement on Form S-3, with respect to the Registrable Securities (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) owned by such Demand Holder. The Company is required to make such filing within 60 days in the case of a Form S-1 or 30 days in the case of a Form S-3, in each case after receiving a demand notice from such Demand Holder. This offering will constitute an initial public offering under the Registration Rights Agreement.
The Company is required to maintain the effectiveness of any such registration statement until the Registrable Securities covered by the registration statement are no longer Registrable Securities. Additionally, the Holders (as defined in the Registration Rights Agreement) have customary underwritten offering and piggyback registration rights, subject to the limitations set forth in the Registration Rights Agreement.
The foregoing registration rights are subject to certain conditions and limitations, including customary blackout periods, the Company’s right to delay or withdraw a registration statement under certain circumstances and, if an underwritten offering is contemplated, the number of such underwritten offerings to be initiated during a year and the right of underwriters to limit the number of shares to be included in a registration statement.
The Company will generally pay all registration expenses in connection with its obligations under the Registration Rights Agreement, regardless of whether a registration statement is filed or becomes effective. The registration rights granted in the Registration Rights Agreement are subject to customary indemnification and contribution provisions. The Registration Rights Agreement will terminate, with respect to each Holder, at such time as such Holder no longer owns any Registrable Securities, and in full and be of no further effect, at such time as there are no Registrable Securities held by any Holders.
The foregoing description of the Registration Rights Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Registration Rights Agreement, which is filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 7, 2021.
Equity Purchase and Commitment Agreement
The Debtors entered into the EPCA with the Plan Sponsors on May 14, 2021, which provided for the purchase or otherwise syndication of $1.5 billion in Preferred Stock by Apollo and certain syndicated investors and $2.781 billion in common stock by the Plan Sponsors. In addition, the Plan Sponsors and certain other parties (collectively, the “Backstop Parties”) agreed to backstop the rights offering contemplated by the Proposed Plan (the “Rights Offering”) totaling $1.635 billion of common stock which was offered first to eligible holders of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Old Common Stock”), existing prior to the Reorganization Effective Date (as defined below) and then, if not fully subscribed, to eligible holders of claims with respect to (i) the letter of credit facility provided pursuant to that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of December 13, 2019, by and among The Hertz Corporation (“THC”), the lenders party thereto, and Goldman Sachs Mortgage Company, as administrative agent and issuing lender, as amended, supplemented, or otherwise modified from time to time and (ii) (a) the 6.25% Senior Notes due 2022 issued pursuant to that certain indenture (as the same may have been amended, modified, or supplemented from time to time), dated as of October 16, 2012, by and among THC, as the issuer, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., in its capacity as trustee; (b) the 5.50% Senior Notes due 2024 issued pursuant to that certain indenture (as the same may have been amended, modified, or supplemented from time to time), dated as of September 22, 2016, by and among THC, as the issuer, the subsidiary guarantors party thereto, and Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., in its capacity as trustee; (c) the 7.125% Senior Notes due 2026 issued pursuant to that certain indenture (as the same may have been amended, modified, or supplemented from time to time), dated as of August 1, 2019, by and among

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK
The following summary of the terms of our capital stock is not meant to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to our second amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Certificate of Incorporation”), our second amended and restated bylaws (the “Bylaws”) and the provisions of applicable law.
Authorized Capital Stock
Hertz has the authority to issue a total of 1,100,000,000 shares of capital stock, consisting of:

1,000,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share; and

Common Stock
The rights, preferences and privileges of holders of our common stock are subject to, and may be adversely affected by, the rights of the holders of shares of any series of our preferred stock which we may designate and issue in the future.
Dividend Rights.   Subject to limitations under Delaware law, preferences that may apply to any outstanding shares of preferred stock, and contractual restrictions, holders of our common stock are entitled to receive ratably dividends or other distributions when and if declared by the board of directors. In addition to such restrictions, whether any future dividends are paid will depend on decisions that will be made by the board of directors and will depend on then existing conditions, including our financial condition, contractual restrictions, corporate law restrictions, capital requirements and business prospects. The ability of the board of directors to declare dividends also will be subject to the rights of any holders of outstanding shares of our preferred stock and the availability of sufficient funds under the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (“DGCL”) to pay dividends.

Voting Rights.   Subject to the rights of the holders of any series of our preferred stock, each outstanding share of our common stock is entitled to one vote on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders. The holders of our common stock will not have cumulative voting rights.
Public Warrants to Purchase Common Stock
On the Reorganization Effective Date pursuant to the Plan, the Company entered into a Warrant Agreement (the “Warrant Agreement”) with Computershare Inc. and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., collectively as warrant agent, pursuant to which the Company issued 89,049,029 warrants (the “Public Warrants”) to purchase common stock to the holders of Old Common Stock.
The Public Warrants are exercisable from the date of issuance until June 30, 2051, at which time all unexercised Public Warrants will expire and the rights of the holders of such expired Public Warrants to purchase common stock will terminate. Each Public Warrant is initially exercisable for one share of common stock per Public Warrant at an initial exercise price of $13.80 per Public Warrant (the “Exercise Price”), subject to the cashless exercise provisions contained in the Warrant Agreement. Any payment of dividends in cash will adjust the Exercise Price pursuant to the terms of the Warrant Agreement.
The Exercise Price is subject to adjustment from time to time upon the occurrence of certain dilutive events, including stock splits, reverse stock splits, recapitalizations, reclassifications of the common stock,
 
24

 
consolidations, mergers or combinations involving the Company, sales of all or substantially all of or substantially all of the assets of the Company, stock dividends to holders of common stock, the issuance of rights or warrants to holders of common stock, dividends or distributions to holders of common stock of shares of the Company’s capital stock, rights or warrants to purchase the Company’s securities or indebtedness, assets or property, or certain reclassification or reorganization events in respect of the common stock.

In connection with any consolidation, merger, sale, lease or other transfer of the Company, the successor to the Company will be required to assume all of the Company’s obligations under the Warrant Agreement and the Public Warrants.
Pursuant to the Warrant Agreement, no holder of a Public Warrant, by virtue of holding or having a beneficial interest in the Public Warrant, will have the right to vote, receive dividends, receive notice as stockholders with respect to any meeting of stockholders for the election of the Company’s directors or any other matter, or exercise any rights whatsoever as a stockholder of the Company unless, until and only to the extent such holders become holders of record of shares of common stock issued upon settlement of Public Warrants. Under the Warrant Agreement, the Company and its subsidiaries are not permitted to enter into or amend or modify any transaction with its affiliates (other than subsidiaries of the Company) unless such transaction (i) is on terms no less favorable to the Company or its applicable subsidiaries than terms that would be obtained by the Company or such subsidiary from a disinterested third party on an arm’s length basis, or (ii) has been approved by a majority of the Disinterested Directors (as defined in the Warrant Agreement), subject to certain permitted exceptions set forth in the Warrant Agreement.
The foregoing description of the Warrant Agreement does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of the Warrant Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on July 7, 2021 and incorporated by reference herein.
Our warrants are currently traded on the OTC Bulletin Board, under the trading symbol “HTZZW.”
Preferred Stock
In accordance with the Plan and the Certificate of Incorporation, as of the Reorganization Effective Date, the Company designated 1,500,000 shares of the preferred stock, $0.01 par value per share, of the Company, as “Series A Preferred Stock” ​(the “Preferred Stock”), by filing a certificate of designation (the “Preferred Stock Designation”) with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware. Pursuant to the EPCA, the Company issued all 1,500,000 shares of the Preferred Stock to Apollo and certain syndicated investors at the Reorganization Effective Date.
Pursuant to the Preferred Stock Designation, shares of Preferred Stock will accrue a dividend, payable semi-annually in arrears (with the first dividend paid on the six month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date), in an amount equal to the applicable dividend rate multiplied by the then-current stated value (which was initially set at $1,000 per share). Subject to the remedies of holders following the occurrence of “Non-Compliance Events” ​(as defined below), the applicable dividend rate is:

with respect to a dividend accrued prior to the second anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, 9.00% per annum;

with respect to a dividend accrued from and after the second anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date and prior to the third anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, 7.00% per annum for any portion paid in cash and 9.00% per annum for any portion paid as a compounded dividend;
 
25

 

with respect to a dividend accrued from and after the third anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date and prior to the 42-month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, 8.00% per annum for any portion paid in cash and 10.00% per annum for any portion paid as a compounded dividend;

with respect to a dividend accrued from and after the 42-month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date and prior to the fourth anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, 9.00% per annum;

with respect to a dividend accrued from and after the fourth anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date and prior to the 54-month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, 10.00% per annum;

with respect to a dividend accrued from and after the 54-month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date and prior to the fifth anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, 11.00% per annum; and

with respect to a dividend accrued from and after the fifth anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date, an amount equal to the sum of 13.00% per annum and the product of 2.00% per annum multiplied by the number of whole years elapsed since the fifth anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date through and including such dividend payment date;
provided that each of the foregoing rates will be increased by 6.00% per annum at any time that the funded corporate indebtedness (including certain preferred stock and undrawn letters of credit) of the Company, The Hertz Corporation and its restricted subsidiaries exceeds $3,300,000,000.
Pursuant to the Preferred Stock Designation, holders of the Preferred Stock will have no voting rights, except as required by law or as described below following the occurrence of Non-Compliance Events (as defined in the Preferred Stock Designation).
The Preferred Stock Designation contains provisions (the “Protective Provisions”) restricting, among other things, the amendment of the Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws in a manner that adversely affects the rights, preferences and privileges of the Preferred Stock; liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company or its business and affairs; the creation, authorization or issuance of any class or series of capital stock other than the common stock; issuance of additional shares of Preferred Stock; affiliate transactions, restricted payments; mergers or other business combinations; asset sales, indebtedness and investments, in each case, subject to the exceptions set forth in the Preferred Stock Designation. Holders of the Preferred Stock (including Apollo) are also entitled to certain information and inspection rights, in each case as set forth more specifically in the Preferred Stock Designation.
Non-compliance events (the “Non-Compliance Events”), including, among other things, the failure to pay a preferred dividend when due (including failure to pay dividends on the Preferred Stock in cash following the 42-month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date), breaches of the Protective Provisions, changes of control, insolvency events and other customary defaults, may, depending on the length of time for which such Non-Compliance Event is continuing, result in an increased accretion of stated value of the Preferred Stock, board reconstitution, a forced exit transaction to redeem the Preferred Stock, and/or a majority voting right being granted to holders of a majority of the outstanding Preferred Stock. These remedies are also available to holders of a majority of the outstanding Preferred Stock to the extent any shares of Preferred Stock remain outstanding on the 87-month anniversary of the Reorganization Effective Date.
Pursuant to the Preferred Stock Designation, the Company may redeem the Preferred Stock in whole or in part at any time and from time to time, in cash, at a redemption price (the “Redemption Price”) equal to the then current accrued stated value of the Preferred Stock being redeemed, subject to a multiple of invested capital floor price equal to 1.30 times the $1,000 per share liquidation preference. Any partial redemption of the Preferred Stock will be in amounts of shares with no less than $250,000,000 aggregate accrued stated value as of the time of such redemption (unless the then current aggregate accrued stated value of the Preferred Stock is equal to or less than $250,000,000, in which case any such redemption will redeem all of the then outstanding Preferred Stock). Holders of the Preferred Stock will not have the right to require the Company to offer to redeem all or a portion of the Preferred Stock.
 
26

 
The Preferred Stock will have a payment priority, including with respect to dividend rights, liquidation preference and ranking senior to any other class or series of equity securities of the Company currently issued or outstanding. In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding up of the Company, the Company will be required to offer to redeem all of the outstanding Preferred Stock in cash at the then-applicable Redemption Price, subject to the sufficiency of the Company’s assets. Further, unless dividends have been declared and paid, or set aside for payment, on all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock, no dividends may be declared or paid on the common stock.
For so long as Apollo and its affiliates collectively hold more than a majority of the outstanding shares of Preferred Stock, Apollo will have the right to designate one individual to serve on the Company’s board of directors (and any committee thereof to which the board of directors has delegated substantially all of its authority) and one observer to the board (but not to any committee).
Certain Anti-Takeover Effects of our Certificate of Incorporation, our Bylaws and Delaware Law
Delaware Business Combinations Statute.   We have elected not to be governed by Section 203 of the DGCL regulating corporate takeovers that, subject to certain exceptions, prohibits a Delaware corporation from engaging in any “business combination” ​(as defined below) with an “interested stockholder” ​(as defined below) for a period of three years following the time that such stockholder became an interested stockholder. Section 203 of the DGCL defines “business combination” to include: (1) any merger or consolidation involving the corporation and the interested stockholder; (2) any sale, transfer pledge or other disposition of 10% or more of the assets of the corporation in a transaction involving the interested stockholder; (3) subject to certain exceptions, any transaction that results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation of any stock of the corporation to the interested stockholder; (4) any transaction involving the corporation that has the effect of increasing the proportionate share of the stock of any class or series of the corporation beneficially owned by the interested stockholder; or (5) the receipt by the interested stockholder of the benefit of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation. In general, Section 203 defines an “interested stockholder” as any entity or person beneficially owning 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation and any entity or person affiliated with or controlling or controlled by such entity or person.
Board of Directors.   Our Certificate of Incorporation and our Bylaws provide that the number of directors will be fixed by the board of directors from time to time. The initial Board following consummation of the Plan may be up to 11 directors. Currently, the Board consists of nine members. Our board of directors is classified into three classes of directors and, as a result, in most circumstances, a person can gain control of our board by successfully engaging in a proxy contest at two or more annual meetings. Under our Bylaws, at all meetings of stockholders for the election of directors at which a quorum is present, a plurality of the votes cast will be sufficient to elect a director. Under our Certificate of Incorporation and our Bylaws, a vote of a majority of all then outstanding capital stock entitled to vote at an election of directors is required to remove a director but only for cause, and the Board may fill the resulting vacancy, except that whenever the holders of one or more series of the Preferred Stock have the right, voting separately by class or series, to nominate or elect one or more directors, the removal of such directors will be governed by the terms of such series of the Preferred Stock as set forth in our Certificate of Incorporation. Vacancies resulting from newly created directorships by reason of an increase in the size of the board of directors or from death, resignation, retirement, disqualification, removal or other cause will be filled by a majority vote of the board of directors, even if less than quorum, or by a sole remaining director (and not stockholders). These provisions may deter a stockholder from removing incumbent directors and simultaneously gaining control of the board of directors by filling the vacancies created by this removal with its own nominees.
Advance Notice Procedures.   Our Bylaws establish an advance notice procedure for stockholder proposals to be brought before a meeting of stockholders, including proposed nominations of persons for election to the board of directors. Stockholders at a meeting will only be able to consider proposals or nominations specified in the notice of meeting or brought before the meeting by or at the direction of the board of directors or by a stockholder who was a stockholder of record on the record date for the meeting, who is entitled to vote at the meeting and who has given our corporate secretary timely written notice, in proper form, of the stockholder’s intention to bring that business before the meeting. Although our Bylaws will not give the board of directors the power to approve or disapprove stockholder nominations of
 
27

 
candidates or proposals regarding other business to be conducted at a special or annual meeting, our Bylaws may have the effect of precluding the conduct of certain business at a meeting if the proper procedures are not followed or may discourage or deter a potential acquirer from conducting a solicitation of proxies to elect its own slate of directors or otherwise attempting to obtain control of the company.
Action by Written Consent; Special Meetings of Stockholders.   Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that stockholder action can be taken only at an annual or special meeting of stockholders and cannot be taken by written consent in lieu of a meeting. Our Certificate of Incorporation and our Bylaws provide that, except as otherwise required by law, special meetings of the stockholders may be called at any time only by or at the direction of our board of directors pursuant to a written resolution adopted by the affirmative vote of the majority of the total number of directors that the Company would have if there were no vacancies; or by one or more stockholders holding not less than 25% of the voting power of all shares of the Company entitled to vote (except that a special meeting for the purpose of considering any action to directly or indirectly facilitate or effect a business combination, including any action to change or otherwise affect the composition of our board of directors for that purpose, must be called by 50% or more of the voting power of all shares of the Company entitled to vote), who shall demand such special meeting by written notice given to our Board of directors specifying the purpose or purposes of such meeting.
Authorized but Unissued Shares.   Our authorized but unissued shares of common stock and preferred stock will be available for future issuance without stockholder approval, subject to the rules and regulations of any applicable stock exchange or similar rules. These additional shares may be utilized for a variety of corporate purposes, including future public offerings to raise additional capital, corporate acquisitions and employee benefit plans. The existence of authorized but unissued shares of common stock and preferred stock could render more difficult or discourage an attempt to obtain control of a majority of our common stock by means of a proxy contest, tender offer, merger or otherwise.
Limitations on Directors’ Liability.   Our Certificate of Incorporation contains a provision eliminating the personal liability of our directors to Hertz or any of its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
Indemnification of Officers and Directors.   Our Certificate of Incorporation and our Bylaws contain provisions generally providing for indemnification and prepayment of expenses to our directors and officers to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.
Business Opportunities.   In recognition that our investors and their officers, directors, agents, stockholders, members, partners, affiliates and subsidiaries may serve as our directors and/or officers and that our investors may engage in similar activities or lines of business that we do, our Certificate of Incorporation provides for the allocation of certain business opportunities between us and our investors. Specifically, none of our investors or any officer, director, agent, stockholder, member, partner or affiliate of an investor has any duty to refrain from engaging directly or indirectly in the same or similar business activities or lines of business that we do. In the event that any investor acquires knowledge of a potential transaction or matter which may be a business opportunity for itself and us, we will not have any expectancy in such business opportunity, and the investor will not have any duty to communicate or offer such business opportunity to us and may pursue or acquire such business opportunity for itself or direct such opportunity to another person. In addition, if a director or officer of us who is also an officer, director, agent, stockholder, member, partner or affiliate of any investor acquires knowledge of a potential transaction or matter which may be a business opportunity for us and an investor, we will not have any expectancy in such business opportunity unless such business opportunity is expressly offered to such person solely in his or her capacity as a director or officer of us.
No such person shall be liable to Hertz or any of its subsidiaries for breach of any fiduciary or other duty, as a director or officer or otherwise, by reason of the fact that such person pursues or acquires such business opportunity, directs such business opportunity to another person or fails to present such business opportunity, or information regarding such business opportunity, to Hertz or its subsidiaries.
These provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation are permitted by Section 122 of the DGCL, and, accordingly, we and all of our stockholders will be subject to them.
 
28

 
Transactions with Interested Directors or Officers.   The DGCL provides that a contract or transaction in which one or more of our directors or officers has a financial interest will not be void or voidable solely because a director or officer is interested, or solely because the director or officer is present at or participates in the meeting which authorizes the contract or transaction, or solely because such person’s votes are counted for such purpose if:

the material facts as to such person’s or persons’ relations or interest as to the contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the board of directors or the committee, and the board of directors or committee in good faith authorizes the contract or transaction by the affirmative vote of a majority of disinterested directors, even though the number of disinterested directors may be less than a quorum; or

the material facts as to such person’s or person’s relationship or interest as to the contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the stockholders entitled to vote thereon, and the contract or transaction is specifically approved in good faith by vote of the stockholders; or

the contract or transaction is fair as to us as of the time it is authorized, approved or ratified by the board of directors, a committee thereof or the stockholders.
Exclusive Forum.   Our Certificate of Incorporation provides that, unless we consent in writing to an alternative forum, the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware (the “Court of Chancery”) (or, if the Court of Chancery lacks subject matter jurisdiction, any state court located within the State of Delaware or, if and only if all such state courts lack subject matter jurisdiction, the federal district court for the District of Delaware (together with the Court of Chancery, the “Delaware Courts” and, individually, a “Delaware Court”)) will be the sole and exclusive forum for any stockholder (including a beneficial owner) to bring (a) any derivative action or proceeding brought on behalf of the Company, (b) any action asserting a claim of breach of a fiduciary duty owed by any director, officer, employee, or agent of the Company to the Company or the Company’s stockholders, (c) any action asserting a claim arising pursuant to any provision of the DGCL or our Certificate of Incorporation or Bylaws, (d) any action or proceeding as to which the DGCL confers jurisdiction to the Court of Chancery, or (e) any action asserting a claim governed by the internal affairs doctrine, except for, as to each of (a) through (e) above, any claim (i) as to which such Delaware Court determines that there is an indispensable party not subject to the jurisdiction of such Delaware Court (and the indispensable party does not consent to the personal jurisdiction of such Delaware Court within ten days following such determination), (ii) which is vested in the exclusive jurisdiction of a court or forum other than the Delaware Courts, or (iii) for which the Delaware Courts do not have subject matter jurisdiction.
Our Certificate of Incorporation further provides that, unless we consent in writing to the selection of an alternative forum, the federal district courts of the United States will be the sole and exclusive forum for resolving any complaint asserting a cause of action arising under the Securities Act. In addition, our Certificate of Incorporation provides that any person or entity purchasing or otherwise acquiring any interest in shares of our common stock is deemed to have notice of and consented to the foregoing provisions. The enforceability of similar choice of forum provisions in other companies’ certificates of incorporation and bylaws has been challenged in legal proceedings, and it is possible that a court could find these types of provisions to be inapplicable or unenforceable.

SHARES ELIGIBLE FOR FUTURE SALE
Future sales of substantial amounts of our common stock in the public market, or the perception that such sales may occur, could adversely affect the prevailing market price of our common stock. No prediction can be made as to the effect, if any, future sales of shares, or the availability of shares for future sales, will have on the market price of our common stock prevailing from time to time.
Sale of Restricted Shares
As of October 7, 2021, we had 471,528,799 shares of common stock outstanding, 457,304,657 shares of which constitute “restricted securities” as defined by Rule 144 under the Securities Act (“Rule 144”) and, as a result, cannot be sold or transferred except in a transaction registered under the Securities Act or pursuant to an exemption from such registration requirements. All shares of our common stock sold pursuant to this offering will be freely tradable without restriction or further registration under the Securities Act unless purchased by one of our “affiliates,” as that term is defined in Rule 144. Unless otherwise registered under the Securities Act, sales of shares of our common stock by affiliates will be subject to the volume limitations and other restrictions set forth in Rule 144.
Common Stock and Warrants Issued in Reliance on Section 1145 of the Bankruptcy Code
We relied on section 1145(a)(1) and (2) of the Bankruptcy Code to exempt from the registration requirements of the Securities Act the offer and sale of a portion of our common stock, as well as the Public Warrants, upon our emergence from Chapter 11. Section 1145(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code exempts the offer and sale of securities under the Plan from registration under Section 5 of the Securities Act and state laws if certain requirements are satisfied. Section 1145(a)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code exempts the offer of securities through and the sale of any securities upon the exercise of any warrant, option, right to subscribe or conversion privilege issued under 1145(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code, such as the shares of our common stock issuable upon exercise of the Public Warrants, from registration under Section 5 of the Securities Act and state laws if certain requirements are satisfied. Accordingly, the 14,133,024 shares of our common stock issued to existing stockholders of the Company pursuant to the Plan, the Public Warrants and the 89,049,029 shares of our common stock issuable upon exercise of such Public Warrants may be resold without registration unless the seller is an “underwriter” with respect to those securities.
Section 1145(b)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code defines an “underwriter” as any person who:

purchases a claim against, an interest in, or a claim for an administrative expense against the debtor, if that purchase is with a view to distributing any security received or to be received in exchange for such a claim or interest;

offers to sell securities offered under the plan for the holders of those securities;

offers to buy those securities from the holders of the securities, if the offer to buy is (i) with a view to distributing those securities; and (ii) under an agreement made in connection with the Plan, the completion of the plan, or with the offer or sale of securities under the plan; or

is an issuer, as used in section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act, with respect to such securities.
To the extent a person is deemed to be an “underwriter,” resales by such person would not be exempted by section 1145 of the Bankruptcy Code from registration under the Securities Act or other applicable law. Those persons would, however, be permitted to sell our common stock or other securities without registration if they are able to comply with the provisions of Rule 144, as described further below.
Common Stock Issued Under the Plan Pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Exchange Act
Pursuant to the Plan, on the Reorganization Effective Date, the Company issued 456,969,438 shares of common stock as follows:

277,119,438 shares of common stock were issued to the Plan Sponsors pursuant to the EPCA;

127,362,114 shares of common stock were issued to eligible participants in the Rights Offering; and
 
30

 

52,487,886 shares of common stock were issued to the Backstop Parties in the Rights Offering pursuant to the EPCA.
The offer and sale of such shares of common stock was exempt from the registration requirements of Section 5 of the Securities Act pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) thereof, and such shares of common stock are deemed “restricted securities” within the meaning of Rule 144 and may not be sold unless registered under the Securities Act or in compliance with an applicable exemption therefrom.
Rule 144
The shares described above under “Common Stock Issued Under the Plan Pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Exchange Act” constitute “restricted securities” under Rule 144. Commencing December 30, 2021, assuming we remain current in our reporting obligations under the Exchange Act, and commencing on June 30, 2022, if we do not, such shares of common stock may also be sold under Rule 144 of the Securities Act, subject in the case of holders that are affiliates to restrictions on volume and manner of sale. As of October 7, 2021, 202,630,559 shares of common stock constituting “restricted securities” were held by affiliates and an additional 49,032 were “control securities”, and in each case will be subject to such restrictions on volume and manner of sale following the expiration of the applicable restricted period.
Lock-Up Restrictions
We expect that our directors, executive officers, and certain holders of our common stock and securities convertible into or exchangeable for our common stock (including the selling stockholders) will enter into lock-up agreements with the underwriters through the date that is     days after the date of this prospectus. See the section titled “Underwriting” for additional information regarding our lock-up agreement with the underwriters.
Stock Options and Other Stock Awards
The Plan contemplates the adoption of a new management incentive plan under which shares of our common stock, or options or other awards to purchase shares of common stock, can be issued to our directors, management and other employees. As of the date of this prospectus, the management incentive plan has not been established.

UNDERWRITING
The selling stockholders are offering the shares of common stock described in this prospectus through a number of underwriters. Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC are acting as joint book-running managers and as representatives of the underwriters. We and the selling stockholders have entered into an underwriting agreement with the underwriters. Subject to the terms and conditions of the underwriting agreement, the selling stockholders have agreed to sell to the underwriters, and each underwriter has severally agreed to purchase, at the public offering price less the underwriting discounts and commissions set forth on the cover page of this prospectus, the number of shares of common stock listed next to its name in the following table:
Name
Number of Shares
Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC
Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC
Barclays Capital Inc.
Deutsche Bank Securities Inc.
Total
       
The underwriters are committed to purchase all the shares of common stock offered by the selling stockholders if they purchase any shares. The underwriting agreement also provides that if an underwriter defaults, the purchase commitments of non-defaulting underwriters may also be increased or the offering may be terminated. The offering of the shares by the underwriters is subject to receipt and acceptance and subject to the underwriters’ right to reject any order in whole or in part.
The underwriters propose to offer the shares of common stock directly to the public at the initial public offering price set forth on the cover page of this prospectus and to certain dealers at that price less a concession not in excess of $      per share. Any such dealers may resell shares to certain other brokers or dealers at a discount of up to $      per share from the initial public offering price. After the initial offering of the shares to the public, if all of the shares of common stock are not sold at the initial public offering price, the underwriters may change the offering price and the other selling terms. Sales of any shares made outside of the United States may be made by affiliates of the underwriters.
The underwriters have an option to buy up to           additional shares of common stock from the selling stockholders to cover sales of shares by the underwriters which exceed the number of shares specified in the table above. The underwriters have 30 days from the date of this prospectus to exercise this option to purchase additional shares. If any shares are purchased with this option to purchase additional shares, the underwriters will purchase shares in approximately the same proportion as shown in the table above. If any additional shares of common stock are purchased, the underwriters will offer the additional shares on the same terms as those on which the shares are being offered.
We have agreed to pay certain expenses in connection with this offering, excluding any underwriting discounts and commissions, which will be paid by the selling stockholders. The underwriting fee is equal to the public offering price per share of common stock less the amount paid by the underwriters to the selling stockholders per share of common stock. The underwriting fee is $      per share. The following table shows the per share and total underwriting discounts and commissions to be paid to the underwriters assuming both no exercise and full exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares.

We estimate that the total expenses of this offering payable by us, including registration, filing and listing fees, printing fees and legal and accounting expenses, but excluding the underwriting discounts and commissions, will be approximately $      . We have agreed to reimburse the underwriters for certain of their expenses in connection with this offering.

A prospectus in electronic format may be made available on the websites maintained by one or more underwriters, or selling group members, if any, participating in the offering. The underwriters may agree to allocate a number of shares to underwriters and selling group members for sale to their online brokerage account holders. Internet distributions will be allocated by the representatives to underwriters and selling group members that may make Internet distributions on the same basis as other allocations.
We have agreed to indemnify the underwriters against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act.
We intend to apply to list our common stock on Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “HTZ.”
Lock-Up Agreements
We, our executive officers, directors and certain holders of our common stock, including the selling stockholders, prior to this offering have agreed with the underwriters, subject to certain exceptions, not to dispose of or hedge any shares of our common stock or securities convertible into or exchangeable for shares of common stock during the period from the date of this prospectus continuing through the date that is    days after the date of this prospectus, except with the prior written consent of Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC, J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC.
Stabilization and Short Positions
In connection with this offering, the underwriters may engage in stabilizing transactions, which involves making bids for, purchasing and selling shares of common stock in the open market for the purpose of preventing or retarding a decline in the market price of the common stock while this offering is in progress. These stabilizing transactions may include making short sales of common stock, which involves the sale by the underwriters of a greater number of shares of common stock than they are required to purchase in this offering, and purchasing shares of common stock on the open market to cover positions created by short sales. Short sales may be “covered” shorts, which are short positions in an amount not greater than the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares referred to above, or may be “naked” shorts, which are short positions in excess of that amount. The underwriters may close out any covered short position either by exercising their option to purchase additional shares, in whole or in part, or by purchasing shares in the open market. In making this determination, the underwriters will consider, among other things, the price of shares available for purchase in the open market compared to the price at which the underwriters may purchase shares through the option to purchase additional shares. A naked short position is more likely to be created if the underwriters are concerned that there may be downward pressure on the price of the common stock in the open market that could adversely affect investors who purchase in this offering. To the extent that the underwriters create a naked short position, they will purchase shares in the open market to cover the position.
The underwriters have advised us that, pursuant to Regulation M of the Securities Act, they may also engage in other activities that stabilize, maintain or otherwise affect the price of the common stock, including the imposition of penalty bids. This means that if the representatives of the underwriters purchase common stock in the open market in stabilizing transactions or to cover short sales, the representatives can require the underwriters that sold those shares as part of this offering to repay the underwriting discount received by them.
These activities may have the effect of raising or maintaining the market price of the common stock or preventing or retarding a decline in the market price of the common stock, and, as a result, the price of the common stock may be higher than the price that otherwise might exist in the open market. If the underwriters commence these activities, they may discontinue them at any time. The underwriters may carry out these transactions on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, in the over-the-counter market or otherwise.
Determination of Offering Price
Prior to this offering, there has been no public market for our common stock prior to this offering, although our common shares have been quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board since July 1, 2021 under the
 
33

 
trading symbol “HTZZ.” The initial public offering price will be determined by negotiations between us, the selling stockholders and the representatives of the underwriters. In determining the initial public offering price, we, the selling stockholders and the representatives of the underwriters expect to consider a number of factors including:

the information set forth in this prospectus and otherwise available to the representatives;

our prospects and the history and prospects for the industry in which we compete;

an assessment of our management;

our present operations;

our historical results of operations;

our prospects for future earnings;

the general condition of the securities markets at the time of this offering;

the recent market prices of, and demand for, publicly traded common stock of generally comparable companies; and

other factors deemed relevant by the underwriters, the selling stockholders and us.
We, the selling stockholders and the representatives of the underwriters considered these and other relevant factors in relation to the price of similar securities of generally comparable companies. Neither we, the selling stockholders nor the underwriters can assure investors that an active trading market will develop for our shares of common stock, or that the shares of our common stock will trade in the public market at or above the initial public offering price.
Other than in the United States, no action has been taken by us or the underwriters that would permit a public offering of the securities offered by this prospectus in any jurisdiction where action for that purpose is required. The securities offered by this prospectus may not be offered or sold, directly or indirectly, nor may this prospectus or any other offering material or advertisements in connection with the offer and sale of any such securities be distributed or published in any jurisdiction, except under circumstances that will result in compliance with the applicable rules and regulations of that jurisdiction. Persons into whose possession this prospectus comes are advised to inform themselves about and to observe any restrictions relating to the offering and the distribution of this prospectus. This prospectus does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities offered by this prospectus in any jurisdiction in which such an offer or a solicitation is unlawful.

LLC, an underwriter in this offering, purchased 10,000,000 shares of our common stock and 100,000 shares of our Preferred Stock on the Reorganization Effective Date, and beneficially owned such shares as of the date of this prospectus.

MATERIAL U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSIDERATIONS
The following discussion is a summary of the material U.S. federal income tax consequences to Non-U.S. Holders (as defined below) of the purchase, ownership, and disposition of our common stock. The effects of other U.S. federal tax laws, such as estate and gift tax laws, and any applicable state, local or non-U.S. tax laws are not discussed. This discussion is based on the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), Treasury Regulations promulgated thereunder, judicial decisions, and published rulings and administrative pronouncements of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”), in each case in effect as of the date hereof. These authorities may change or be subject to differing interpretations. Any such change or differing interpretation may be applied retroactively in a manner that could adversely affect a Non-U.S. Holder of our common stock. We have not sought and will not seek any rulings from the IRS regarding the matters discussed below. There can be no assurance the IRS or a court will not take a contrary position to those discussed below regarding the tax consequences of the purchase, ownership and disposition of our common stock.
This discussion is limited to Non-U.S. Holders that hold our common stock as a “capital asset” within the meaning of Section 1221 of the Code. This discussion does not address all U.S. federal income tax consequences relevant to a Non-U.S. Holder’s particular circumstances, including the impact of the Medicare contribution tax on net investment income. In addition, it does not address consequences relevant to Non-U.S. Holders subject to special rules, including, without limitation:

U.S. expatriates and former citizens or long-term residents of the United States;

persons subject to the alternative minimum tax;

persons holding our common stock as part of a hedge, straddle or other risk reduction strategy or as part of a conversion transaction or other integrated investment;

banks, insurance companies, and other financial institutions;

brokers, dealers or traders in securities;

“controlled foreign corporations,” “passive foreign investment companies,” and corporations that accumulate earnings to avoid U.S. federal income tax;

partnerships, or other entities or arrangements treated as partnerships for U.S. federal income tax purposes (and investors therein);

tax-exempt organizations or governmental organizations;

persons deemed to sell our common stock under the constructive sale provisions of the Code;

persons who hold or receive our common stock pursuant to the exercise of any employee stock option or otherwise as compensation;

persons that actually or constructively own more than 5% (by value) of our common stock; and

tax-exempt retirement plans.
If an entity or arrangement taxed as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes holds our common stock, the tax treatment of a partner in the partnership will depend on the status of the partner, the activities of the partnership and certain determinations made at the partner level. Accordingly, partnerships holding our common stock and the partners in such partnerships should consult their tax advisors regarding the U.S. federal income tax consequences to them.
THIS DISCUSSION IS ONLY A SUMMARY OF CERTAIN U.S. FEDERAL INCOME TAX CONSIDERATIONS ASSOCIATED WITH THE ACQUISITION, OWNERSHIP AND DISPOSITION OF OUR COMMON STOCK. EACH PROSPECTIVE INVESTOR IN OUR COMMON STOCK IS URGED TO CONSULT ITS OWN TAX ADVISOR WITH RESPECT TO THE PARTICULAR TAX CONSEQUENCES TO SUCH INVESTOR OF THE ACQUISITION, OWNERSHIP AND DISPOSITION OF OUR COMMON STOCK, INCLUDING THE APPLICABILITY AND EFFECT OF ANY U.S. FEDERAL NON-INCOME, STATE, LOCAL, AND NON-U.S. TAX LAWS.

Definition of a Non-U.S. Holder
For purposes of this discussion, a “Non-U.S. Holder” is any beneficial owner of our common stock that is neither a “U.S. person” nor an entity treated as a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. A U.S. person is any person that, for U.S. federal income tax purposes, is or is treated as any of the following:

an individual who is a citizen or resident of the United States;

a corporation (or other entity taxable as a corporation) created or organized under the laws of the United States, any state thereof, or the District of Columbia;

an estate, the income of which is subject to U.S. federal income tax regardless of its source; or

a trust if (i) a court within the United States is able to exercise primary supervision over the administration of the trust and one or more United States persons (as defined in the Code) have authority to control all substantial decisions of the trust or (ii) it has a valid election in effect under Treasury Regulations to be treated as a United States person.
Distributions
If we make distributions of cash or property on our common stock, such distributions will constitute dividends for U.S. federal income tax purposes to the extent paid from our current or accumulated earnings and profits, as determined under U.S. federal income tax principles. Amounts not treated as dividends for U.S. federal income tax purposes will constitute a return of capital and first be applied against and reduce a Non-U.S. Holder’s adjusted tax basis in its common stock, but not below zero. Distributions in excess of our current and accumulated earnings and profits and in excess of a Non-U.S. Holder’s tax basis in its common stock will be treated as capital gain and will be treated as described below under “— Sale or Other Taxable Disposition.”
Subject to the discussion below on effectively connected income, dividends paid to a Non-U.S. Holder of our common stock will be subject to U.S. federal withholding tax at a rate of 30% of the gross amount of the dividends (or such lower rate specified by an applicable income tax treaty, provided the Non-U.S. Holder furnishes a valid IRS Form W-8BEN or W-8BEN-E (or other applicable documentation) certifying qualification for the lower treaty rate). Non-U.S. Holders should consult their tax advisors regarding their entitlement to benefits under any applicable income tax treaty. A Non-U.S. Holder eligible for a reduced rate of U.S. federal withholding tax pursuant to an applicable income tax treaty may obtain a refund of any excess amounts withheld by timely filing an appropriate claim for refund with the IRS.
If dividends paid to a Non-U.S. Holder are effectively connected with the Non-U.S. Holder’s conduct of a trade or business within the United States (and, if required by an applicable income tax treaty, the Non-U.S. Holder maintains a permanent establishment in the United States to which such dividends are attributable), the Non-U.S. Holder will be exempt from the U.S. federal withholding tax described above. To claim the exemption, the Non-U.S. Holder must furnish to the applicable withholding agent a valid IRS Form W-8ECI, certifying that the dividends are effectively connected with the Non-U.S. Holder’s conduct of a trade or business within the United States. Any such effectively connected dividends will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on a net income basis as if the Non-U.S. Holder were a U.S. resident. A Non-U.S. Holder that is a corporation also may be subject to a branch profits tax at a rate of 30% (or such lower rate specified by an applicable income tax treaty) on such effectively connected dividends, as adjusted for certain items. Non-U.S. Holders should consult their tax advisors regarding any applicable tax treaties that may provide for different rules.
Sale or Other Taxable Disposition
A Non-U.S. Holder will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on any gain realized upon the sale or other taxable disposition of our common stock unless:

the gain is effectively connected with the Non-U.S. Holder’s conduct of a trade or business within the United States (and, if required by an applicable income tax treaty, the Non-U.S. Holder maintains a permanent establishment in the United States to which such gain is attributable);
 
40

 

the Non-U.S. Holder is a nonresident alien individual present in the United States for 183 days or more during the taxable year of the disposition and certain other requirements are met; or

our common stock constitutes a United States real property interest (“USRPI”) by reason of our status (at any time during the shorter of the five-year period preceding the date of disposition or the Non-U.S. Holder’s holding period) as a United States real property holding corporation (“USRPHC”), within the meaning of the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act (“FIRPTA”), for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Generally, a domestic corporation is a USRPHC if the fair market value of its USRPIs equals or exceeds 50% of the sum of the fair market value of its worldwide real property interests plus its other assets used or held for use in its trade or business.
Gain described in the first bullet point above generally will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on a net income basis as if the Non-U.S. Holder were a U.S. resident. A Non-U.S. Holder that is a corporation also may be subject to a branch profits tax at a rate of 30% (or such lower rate specified by an applicable income tax treaty) on such effectively connected gain, as adjusted for certain items.
A Non-U.S. Holder described in the second bullet point above will be subject to U.S. federal income tax at a rate of 30% (or such lower rate specified by an applicable income tax treaty) on any gain derived from the sale or other taxable disposition, which may be offset by U.S.-source capital losses of the Non-U.S. Holder (even though the individual is not considered a resident of the United States).
With respect to the third bullet point above, we have not determined whether we are a USRPHC. While it is unlikely that we are currently a USRPHC, no assurance can be given that we are not one or will not become one in the future. If we are or become a USRPHC, so long as our common stock is “regularly traded on an established securities market,” a Non-U.S. Holder will be subject to U.S. federal net income tax on gain from a disposition of our common stock only if the Non-U.S. Holder actually or constructively holds or held (at any time during the shorter of the five-year period preceding the date of disposition or the Non-U.S. Holder’s holding period) more than 5% (by value) of our common stock. If our common stock constitutes a USRPI by reason of our status as a USRPHC and our common stock is not “regularly traded on an established securities market,”  a buyer of a Non-U.S. Holder’s common stock might be required to withhold U.S. federal income tax at a rate of 15% of the amount realized upon the disposition.
Non-U.S. Holders should also consult their tax advisors regarding potentially applicable income tax treaties that may provide for different rules.
Information Reporting and Backup Withholding
Information returns will be filed with the IRS in connection with payments of dividends. A Non-U.S. Holder may have to comply with certification procedures to establish that it is not a United States person in order to avoid additional information reporting and backup withholding requirements with respect to payments of dividends and the proceeds of a sale or other disposition of our common stock. The certification procedures required to claim a reduced rate of withholding under a treaty generally will satisfy the certification requirements necessary to avoid the additional information reporting and backup withholding as well. Backup withholding is not an additional tax. The amount of any backup withholding from a payment to a Non-U.S. Holder will be allowed as a credit against such holder’s U.S. federal income tax liability and may entitle such holder to a refund, provided that the required information is timely furnished to the IRS.
FATCA Withholding Taxes
Provisions commonly referred to as “FATCA” impose withholding of 30% on payments of dividends (including constructive dividends) on our common stock to “foreign financial institutions” ​(which is broadly defined for this purpose and in general includes investment vehicles) and certain other non-U.S. entities unless various U.S. information reporting and due diligence requirements (generally relating to ownership by United States persons of interests in or accounts with those entities) have been satisfied by, or an exemption applies to, the payee (typically certified as to by the delivery of a properly completed IRS Form W-8BEN-E). Foreign financial institutions located in jurisdictions that have an intergovernmental agreement with the United States governing FATCA may be subject to different rules. Under certain circumstances, a Non-U.S. Holder might be eligible for refunds or credits of such withholding taxes, and a Non-U.S. Holder might be
 
41

 
required to file a U.S. federal income tax return to claim such refunds or credits. Thirty percent withholding under FATCA was scheduled to apply to payments of gross proceeds from the sale or other disposition of property that produces U.S.-source interest or dividends beginning on January 1, 2019, but on December 13, 2018, the IRS released proposed regulations that, if finalized in their proposed form, would eliminate the obligation to withhold on gross proceeds. Such proposed regulations also delayed withholding on certain other payments received from other foreign financial institutions that are allocable, as provided for under Treasury Regulations to be issued, to payments of U.S.-source dividends and other fixed or determinable annual or periodic income. Although these proposed Treasury Regulations are not final, taxpayers generally may rely on them until final Treasury Regulations are issued. However, there can be no assurance that final Treasury Regulations will provide the same exceptions from FATCA withholding as the proposed Treasury Regulations. Prospective investors should consult their tax advisors regarding the effects of FATCA on their investment in our common stock.

Item 14.
Indemnification of Directors and Officers.
Hertz is incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware. Section 145 (“Section 145”) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended (the “DGCL”), provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify any persons who were, are or are threatened to be made, parties to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (other than an action by or in the right of such corporation), by reason of the fact that such person is or was an officer, director, employee or agent of such corporation, or is or was serving at the request of such corporation as a director, officer, employee or agent of another corporation or enterprise. The indemnity may include expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with such action, suit or proceeding, provided such person acted in good faith and in a manner he reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the corporation’s best interests and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was illegal. Section 145(b) of the DGCL provides that a Delaware corporation may indemnify officers and directors in an action by or in the right of the corporation under the same conditions, except that no indemnification is permitted without judicial approval if the officer or director is adjudged to be liable to the corporation. Where an officer, director, employee or agent is successful on the merits or otherwise in the defense of any action referred to above, the corporation must indemnify him against the expenses which such officer or director has actually and reasonably incurred.
Section 145(g) of the DGCL provides that a corporation shall have the power to purchase and maintain insurance on behalf of any person who is or was a director or officer of the corporation against any liability asserted against the person in any such capacity, or arising out of the person’s status as such, whether or not the corporation would have the power to indemnify the person against such liability under the provisions of the DGCL.
Article VIII of Hertz’s Certificate of Incorporation provides that a director of Hertz shall not be personally liable to Hertz or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except to the extent such exemption from liability or limitation thereof is not permitted under Delaware law. Article VIII of Hertz’s Certificate of Incorporation and Article VIII of Hertz’s Bylaws provide for indemnification of the officers and directors of Hertz to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL.
The foregoing is only a general summary of certain aspects of Delaware law and the registrant’s organizational documents dealing with indemnification of directors and officers and does not purport to be
 
II-1

 
complete. It is qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable provisions of the DGCL and of the registrant’s Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws.
Hertz has obtained directors’ and officers’ liability insurance, which insures against liabilities that its directors or officers may incur in such capacities.
Item 15.
Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities.
As previously disclosed, on May 22, 2020, Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (the “Company” or “we”), The Hertz Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, (“THC”) and certain of their direct and indirect subsidiaries in the U.S. and Canada (collectively, the “Debtors”) filed voluntary petitions for relief (collectively, the “Petitions”) under chapter 11 (“Chapter 11”) of the United States Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The Chapter 11 cases (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) are jointly administered for procedural purposes only under the caption In re The Hertz Corporation, et al., Case No. 20-11218 (MFW).
The Debtors filed with the Bankruptcy Court a proposed Third Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization, dated as of May 12, 2021 (the “Proposed Plan”), which embodied the plan proposal of the plan sponsor group comprised of, among others, (a) one or more funds associated with Knighthead Capital Management, LLC (“Knighthead”), (b) one or more funds associated with Certares Opportunities LLC (“Certares”) and (c) investment funds, separate accounts, and other entities owned (in whole or in part), controlled, or managed by Apollo Capital Management, L.P. or its affiliates (collectively, “Apollo” and, together with Knighthead and Certares, the “Plan Sponsors”). The Proposed Plan amended and superseded prior versions of the plan of reorganization filed by the Debtors in the Chapter 11 Cases. In connection with the Proposed Plan, the Debtors entered into a Plan Support Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2021 (the “PSA”), with the Plan Sponsors, pursuant to which the parties thereto agreed to take certain actions to support the prosecution and consummation of the Proposed Plan on the terms and conditions set forth in the PSA. The Debtors also entered into an Equity Purchase and Commitment Agreement, dated as of May 14, 2021 (the “EPCA”), with the Plan Sponsors, providing for the purchase or otherwise syndication of $1.5 billion in Preferred Stock (as defined below) by Apollo and $2.781 billion in common stock by the Plan Sponsors. In addition, the Plan Sponsors and certain other parties agreed to backstop the rights offering contemplated by the Proposed Plan (the “Rights Offering”) totaling $1.635 billion of common stock which was offered first to eligible holders of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Old Common Stock”) existing prior to the Reorganization Effective Date (as defined below) and then, if not fully subscribed, to certain eligible holders of unsecured funded debt claims.
On June 10, 2021, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming the Second Modified Third Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization of the Debtors (the “Plan”), which incorporated the Proposed Plan as amended by the Debtors (with the consent of the Plan Sponsors). On June 30, 2021 (the “Reorganization Effective Date”), the Plan became effective in accordance with its terms and the Debtors emerged from the Chapter 11 Cases.
On the Reorganization Effective Date, all shares of Old Common Stock were cancelled pursuant to the Plan.
As a result of these Plan transactions, on the Reorganization Effective Date, the Company issued the following in accordance with the Plan:

14,133,024 shares of common stock to existing stockholders;

89,049,029 Public Warrants to existing stockholders;

277,119,438 shares of common stock to the Plan Sponsors pursuant to the EPCA and 1,500,000 shares of Preferred Stock to Apollo and certain syndicated investors;

127,362,114 shares of common stock to eligible participants pursuant to the Rights Offering; and

52,487,886 shares of common stock to the Backstop Parties in the Rights Offering.
With the exception of shares of common stock issued on account of the backstop obligation under the EPCA, the direct investment commitment under the EPCA and the Rights Offering, the shares of common
 
II-2

 
stock and the warrants issued pursuant to the Plan were issued pursuant to the exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act, under Section 1145 of the Bankruptcy Code, which generally exempts from such registration requirements the issuance of certain securities under a plan of reorganization. Shares of common stock and shares of Preferred Stock issued on account of the backstop obligation under the EPCA, the direct investment commitment under the EPCA and the Rights Offering were issued under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

Undertakings
(a)   The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that:
(1)   Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
(b)   The undersigned registrant hereby undertakes that:
(1)   For purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, the information omitted from the form of prospectus filed as part of this registration statement in reliance upon Rule 430A and contained in a form of prospectus filed by the registrant pursuant to Rule 424(b)(1) or (4) or 497(h) under the Securities Act shall be deemed to be part of this registration statement as of the time it was declared effective.
(2)   For the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each post-effective amendment that contains a form of prospectus shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.
(c)   The undersigned hereby undertakes to deliver or cause to be delivered with the prospectus, to each person to whom the prospectus is sent or given, the latest annual report, to security holders that is incorporated by reference in the prospectus and furnished pursuant to and meeting the requirements of Rule 14a-3 or Rule 14c-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; and, where interim financial information required to be presented by Article 3 of Regulation S-X is not set forth in the prospectus, to deliver, or cause to be delivered to each person to whom the prospectus is sent or given, the latest quarterly report that is specifically incorporated by reference in the prospectus to provide such interim financial information.
