10:34 EDTIDSY, CAR, HTZ, ZIPZipcar, Avis Budget both surge following agreement to merge
Shares of car sharing service operator Zipcar (ZIP) are soaring after it agreed to be acquired by car rental company Avis Budget (CAR) for $12.25 per share in cash, or approximately $500M. Avis Budget's shares also rose after it announced the deal, which it said would be accretive to EPS in the second year. On the companies' conference call related to the deal, Avis Budget said it now sees car sharing as complementary to its traditional business and Zipcar said it expects the deal will "dramatically" reduce its costs associated with buying cars. Avis said it expects the deal will help it reach its growth and profitability targets more quickly and confirmed its guidance for FY12 EPS of $2.35-$2.45 and FY12 revenue of $7.3B. In mid-morning trading, Zipcar surged 48.67% to $12.25, Avis Budget advanced 5.10% to $20.83, and shares of Hertz (HTZ), Avis' primary rival, rose 3.07% to $16.77. Meanwhile, shares of I.D. Systems (IDSY), which struck a partnership agreement with Avis Budget during early 2012 to deploy a new generation of wireless vehicle rental technology, slid 38c, or 6.44% to $5.45, though Avis did state during its conference call that its merger with Zipcar is not expected to impact its existing agreement with I.D. Systems.

16:47 EDTHTZHertz receives NYSE notice of non-compliance
Hertz Global Holdings announced that on March 18, it received a notice from the New York Stock Exchange notifying the company of its failure to meet a NYSE listing standard resulting from the company's failure to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014. As previously disclosed, the company was unable to timely file its 2014 Form 10-K with the SEC because of the ongoing nature of the company's previously announced thorough review and investigation of its internal financial records for fiscal years 2011, 2012 and 2013. As a result of the ongoing nature of this review and its potential impact on the company's 2014 financial results, the company was unable to file the 2014 Form 10-K by the extended due date of March 17, 2015. The financial review and investigation by the company is ongoing. Hertz continues to expect that it will not be able to file updated financial statements, including the 2014 Form 10-K, before mid-2015, and there can be no assurance that the process will be completed by that time.
