The law firm of Wohl & Fruchter LLP is investigating possible violations
of federal securities laws by officers and directors of Hertz Global
Holdings, Inc. (Hertz) (NYSE: HTZ).
On May 13, 2014, Hertz asked the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
(SEC) for additional time to file its quarterly report for the first
quarter ending March 31, 2014, after identifying certain errors that
might require Hertz to restate its financial statements for 2011.
On June 6, 2014, Hertz announced that its financial statements for 2011
would need to be restated and should no longer be relied upon. Hertz
further disclosed that the planned restatement is due to errors relating
to, among other items, the capitalization and timing of depreciation for
certain non-fleet assets, allowances for doubtful accounts in Brazil,
allowances for uncollectible amounts with respect to renter obligations
for damaged vehicles, and restoration obligations at the end of facility

review of its financial records for fiscal years 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Hertz warned that this review may require it to restate and withdraw

In the meantime, Hertz advised that, in light of the above errors, it
has determined that at least one material weakness existed in its
internal control over financial reporting and that disclosure controls
and procedures were ineffective as of December 31, 2013. As a result,
Hertz expects to receive an adverse opinion on its internal control over
financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, from its auditor,
