Hertz engages in the car and equipment rental businesses worldwide. Its rental car segment primarily appeals to higher-margin corporate clientele. Following the December 2012 divestiture of the U.S. operations of Advantage Rent A Car ("Advantage"), Hertz has increasingly relied upon increased sales in the so-called "opaque" market, where online customers are able to bid for travel-related products or services without knowing the brand. The Complaint alleges that the Company and certain of its executive officers misrepresented or failed to disclose that:

  • Hertz was losing sales in the important airport market, which offers higher rental prices and margins than off-airport, longer-term "replacement car" locations.
     
  • Hertz had significant undisclosed exposure to Advantage subsidiary Simply Wheelz's insolvency resulting from its having transferred much of its older, less-valuable fleet to Advantage in the divestiture and valuing the transferred fleet at improperly high prices.
     
  • Hertz and Advantage were engaged in a disagreement over the value of the Advantage fleet assets.
     
  • Hertz was carrying the value of its fleet transferred to Advantage and its subsidiary Simply Wheelz on its books at an artificially inflated level.
