Hertz Global Holdings received a revised proposal from affiliates of Knighthead Capital Management, Certares Opportunities and Apollo Capital Management to provide equity capital required to fund Hertz’s exit from Chapter 11.
The revised proposal contemplates funding Hertz’s plan of reorganization through direct common stock investments aggregating $2.9 billion, direct preferred stock investments aggregating $1.5 billion and a rights offering to raise $1.36 billion. The revised proposal includes an amended plan of reorganization that contemplates payment in full of all secured and unsecured funded debt and provides holders of common stock with $0.50 per share in cash and either 10-year warrants for an aggregate of 10% of the reorganized company or, for eligible stockholders, the possibility of subscribing for shares of common stock in the rights offering. The revised proposal is subject to a number of conditions, including approval by the bankruptcy court.
Hertz’s board of directors has not yet made any determination regarding the revised proposal and will evaluate it in accordance with the procedures established by the bankruptcy court.
