ITEM 5.03 AMENDMENTS TO ARTICLES OF INCORPORATION OR BYLAWS; CHANGE IN FISCAL YEAR.

 

On November 3, 2021 (the “Effective Date”), with the consent of the holders of a majority of the 1,500,000 shares outstanding of Series A preferred stock of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (“we”, “us” or the “Company”), redeemable at the Company’s option (the “Preferred Stock”), we entered into an amendment to the certificate of designations (the “Preferred Stock Designation” and such amendment, the “Amendment”) governing the Preferred Stock. Pursuant to the Amendment, the Preferred Stock Designation was amended to permit us at the time of the listing of our common stock on a national securities exchange and until November 3, 2022 to repurchase for cash shares of common stock for aggregate consideration not to exceed $500 million. In connection with the Amendment, we agreed to pay (i) each consenting holder of Preferred Stock and (ii) any holder of Preferred Stock that delivers a consent on or prior to November 12, 2021 a non-refundable consent fee equal to 0.50% of the aggregate liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock held by such holder.

 

Under the Amendment, on the date that is 50 days following the Effective Date, we must pay each holder of the Preferred Stock a cash fee equal to 2.00% of the liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock held by such holder as of the payment date (the “50-Day Fee”), unless on or prior to such date we have commenced a Qualifying Offer to Purchase (as defined below). On the date that is 90 days following the Effective Date, we must pay each holder of the Preferred Stock a fee in cash in an additional amount equal to 5.00% of the liquidation preference of the Preferred Stock held by such holder as of the payment date (the “90-Day Fee” and, together with the 50-Day Fee, the “Amendment Fee”), unless on or prior to such date we have consummated a Qualifying Offer to Purchase (as defined below) (including the payment of all required amounts in connection therewith).

 

“Qualifying Offer to Purchase” means an unconditional offer to purchase, for cash, all outstanding shares of Preferred Stock in accordance with the requirements of the Preferred Stock Designation, and the following additional requirements: (a) a Qualifying Offer to Purchase shall be open to holders of Preferred Stock for at least 20 business days and no more than 30 business days, and following the expiration thereof, we must promptly (and, in any event, within two business days) consummate the Qualifying Offer to Purchase (including the payment of all required amounts in connection therewith) in accordance with applicable securities laws and regulations; (b) the purchase price per share of Preferred Stock in a Qualifying Offer to Purchase must be an mount in cash equal to 125.0% of the liquidation preference of such share (the “Qualifying Offer Purchase Price”); (c) we must not condition participation by any holder of Preferred Stock in a Qualifying Offer to Purchase on any action other than the tender by such holder of its shares of Preferred Stock (other than the consent by any tendering holder to delete Section 8(b)(viii) of the Preferred Stock Designation, which provides for limitations on certain restricted payments or payments in respect of junior stock, including our common stock), and we must not condition a Qualifying Offer to Purchase on the participation of a minimum number of shares of Preferred Stock; and (d) following the consummation of a Qualifying Offer to Purchase, all shares of Preferred Stock purchased in accordance therewith shall return to the status of and constitute authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock, without classification as to series until such shares are once more classified as a particular series by the board of directors of the Company pursuant to the provisions of the Preferred Stock Designation.

 

The foregoing description of the Amendment is qualified in its entirety by the text of the Amendment, which is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
