ITEM 1.01 ENTRY INTO A MATERIAL DEFINITIVE AGREEMENT.

 

On May 4, 2020, Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. and The Hertz Corporation (collectively, “Hertz” or the “Company”) entered into forbearances and limited waivers with certain of the Company’s corporate lenders and holders of the Company’s asset-backed vehicle debt. The forbearances and waivers, described below, provide Hertz with additional time through May 22, 2020 to engage in discussions with its key stakeholders with the goal to develop a financing strategy and structure that better reflects the economic impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic and Hertz’ ongoing operating and financing requirements.

 

As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Hertz and its subsidiaries have experienced a rapid, sudden and dramatic negative impact on their businesses. While Hertz has taken aggressive action to eliminate costs, it faces significant ongoing operating expenses, including monthly payments under its Amended and Restated Master Motor Vehicle Operating Lease and Servicing Agreement (Series 2013-G1) with Hertz Vehicle Financing LLC (the “Operating Lease”), pursuant to which Hertz leases vehicles used in its United States rental car operations. As previously reported, on April 27, 2020, Hertz did not make certain payments in accordance with the Operating Lease. This caused the occurrence of an amortization event on May 1, 2020 under the terms of a series of debt instruments pursuant to which Hertz and its vehicle finance subsidiaries acquire the leased vehicles.

 

On May 4, 2020, Hertz, Hertz Vehicle Financing LLC (“HVF”), Hertz Vehicle Financing II LP (“HVF II”) and DTG Operations, Inc. entered into a forbearance agreement (the “Forbearance Agreement”). HVF II is a special purpose financing subsidiary that issues asset-backed notes to finance the acquisition of vehicles, which HVF then leases to Hertz pursuant to the Operating Lease. Hertz entered into the Forbearance Agreement with holders (the “VFN Noteholders”) of notes (the “Series 2013-A Notes”) issued by HVF II representing approximately 60% in aggregate principal amount of the Series 2013-A Notes. Pursuant to the Forbearance Agreement, the VFN Noteholders agreed to forbear from exercising rights to direct a liquidation of vehicles which serve as collateral supporting the Series 2013-A Notes. The agreement with the VFN Noteholders will expire on May 22, 2020 or, if sooner, the date on which Hertz fails to comply with certain agreements contained in the forbearance agreement or another amortization event occurs. As a result of the amortization event that occurred on May 1, 2020, and notwithstanding the Forbearance Agreement, proceeds of the sales of vehicles that collateralize the Series 2013-A Notes must be applied to the payment of principal and interest and will not be available to finance new vehicle acquisitions for Hertz. However, in light of the impact of the COVID-19 global pandemic on the travel industry, Hertz believes it will not need to acquire new vehicles for its fleet through the remainder of 2020.

 

Concurrently with entering into the Forbearance Agreement, on May 4, 2020, Hertz entered into limited waiver agreements (collectively, the “Waiver Agreements”) with certain of the lenders (the “Senior Lenders”) under its (i) senior term loan facility, (ii) letter of credit facility, (iii) alternate letter of credit facility and (iv) U.S. vehicle revolving credit facility (collectively, the “Senior Facilities”), pursuant to which the Senior Lenders agreed to (a) waive any default or event of default that could have resulted from the above referenced missed payment under the Operating Lease, (b) waive any default or event of default that has arisen as a result of Hertz’s failure to deliver its 2020 operating budget on a timely basis in accordance with the Senior Facilities and (c) extend the grace period to cure a default with respect to Hertz’s obligation to reimburse drawings that occur under letters of credit during the waiver period. The Waiver Agreements are effective across the Senior Facilities and will expire on May 22, 2020 or, if sooner, the date on which Hertz fails to comply with certain agreements contained in the Waiver Agreements, which include certain limitations on the company’s ability to make certain restricted payments, investments and prepayments of indebtedness during the waiver period and a requirement to deliver certain financial information to the Senior Lenders during the waiver period. There can be no assurances that Hertz will be able to successfully negotiate any further forbearance or waivers extending relief past May 22, 2020.

 

The foregoing descriptions of the Forbearance Agreement and Waiver Agreements do not purport to be complete and are subject to, and qualified in their entirety by reference to, the full text of the Forbearance Agreement or Waiver Agreements, as applicable, copies of which are filed in Exhibits 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5 to this current report on Form 8-K and are incorporated by reference herein.

ITEM 2.03 CREATION OF A DIRECT FINANCIAL OBLIGATION OR AN OBLIGATION UNDER AN OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENT OF A REGISTRANT.

 

The information contained in Item 1.01 regarding the Forbearance Agreement and Waiver Agreements is incorporated by reference herein.

 

ITEM 7.01 REGULATION FD DISCLOSURE.

 

In light of the magnitude of the effort that has already been undertaken and will continue to be necessary from critical employees to operate with reduced resources, the Company restored the base salaries of those employees who had voluntarily reduced their salaries as a proactive measure to reduce costs in response to COVID-19’s impact on travel demand, as initially reported in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K furnished on March 26, 2020. Effective May 11, 2020, the base salaries of senior leaders will be restored to pre-voluntary reduction levels except that the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Kathryn V. Marinello, who had previously voluntarily forgone her entire base salary, has voluntarily agreed to a 10% salary reduction going forward.

 

The information contained in this Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and shall not be incorporated by reference into any filings under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as may be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
