NEW YORK, June 25, 2014
NEW YORK, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Pomerantz LLP announces that a class
action lawsuit has been filed against Hertz Global Holdings, Inc.("Hertz" or
the "Company") (NYSE: HTZ) and certain of its officers. The class action,
filed in United States District Court, District of New Jersey, is on behalf of
a class consisting of all persons or entities who purchased or otherwise
acquired Hertz securities between February 22, 2012 and June 6, 2014 both
dates inclusive (the "Class Period"). This class action seeks to recover
damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities
laws pursuant to Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.
If you are a shareholder who purchased Hertz securities during the Class
Period, you have until August 15, 2014 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Hertz and certain of
its officers violated the federal securities laws by disseminating false and
misleading statements to the investing public.
Specifically, Hertz issued financial statements that were not accurate, and
did not comply with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), which
artificially inflated the market price of Hertz's publicly traded securities.
Hertz announced on June 6 that its Audit Committee concluded that the
financial statements for 2011 would need to be restated, and that the
financial statements for 21012 and 2013 would have to be corrected.
On this news, shares of Hertz declined $2.76 per share, or nearly 9.05%, to
close on June 6, 2014, at $27.73 per share.
