Ford Completes Tender Offer for Hertz Public Shares

DEARBORN, Mich., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F - news) today announced the successful completion of its tender offer for the publicly held shares of Class A common stock of The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HRZ - news) for $35.50 a share.

The offer expired at midnight EST on March 2. Based on preliminary information, 19,375,185 of the approximately 20 million publicly traded shares of Hertz Class A common stock were tendered by the expiration date. Ford FSG Inc., a Ford subsidiary through which the tender offer was made, has accepted for payment all validly tendered shares and expects to make payment to the depositary for the accepted shares on March 6.

The tendered shares, together with the Hertz Class A shares already owned by Ford, represent more than 90 percent of Hertz's outstanding Class A common stock.

Ford and Hertz will now complete the transaction by merging a subsidiary of Ford FSG with Hertz. Hertz will then become an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Company. As part of the merger, each of the remaining Hertz Class A shares, other than shares for which appraisal rights have been demanded, will be converted into $35.50 in cash, without interest. Completion of the merger is expected in about a week.
