10:08 EDTHTZ, BAC, BCSHertz rises after FT says company close to unit spin-off
Shares of Hertz Global Holdings (HTZ) are higher this morning following a Financial Times report that said the company is close to a spin-off of its construction equipment rental business. Hertz operates in two segments: Rental and leasing of cars and trucks and equipment rental. WHAT'S NEW: The Financial Times reported on Friday evening that Hertz is getting ready to spin-off the construction equipment rental business in a deal that could value the unit at about $4.5B. The company has been exploring a spin-off to shareholders or a reverse Morris trust, which combines a spin-off with a merger, and was under pressure last year by activist investors like Carl Icahn and Corvex. The company has also been rumored to have been talking with potential merger targets. In December, Hertz announced a one-year shareholder rights plan following evaluation and consultation with its outside advisers. The company hired Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAC) and Barclays (BCS) in January for advice on defending itself against an investor attack and improving investor returns. Details of the potential spin-off could be announced next week, the report said, citing sources familiar with the matter. WHAT'S NOTABLE: The construction equipment rental business, or HERC, accounted for $1.1B of Hertz's revenue in the first nine months of 2013, the FT noted. PRICE ACTION: Hertz shares are up $1.47, or 5.65%, to $27.45 in mid-morning trading.

16:18 EDTHTZHertz reaches agreement-in-principle with Carl Icahn to add three directors
Hertz announced that it has reached an agreement-in-principle with Carl C. Icahn and affiliated entities to appoint Vincent J. Intrieri, Samuel Merksamer and Daniel A. Ninivaggi to the company's board as new independent directors. In connection with the anticipated director appointments, three existing directors will retire from the board, effective upon the appointments of the new directors to the board. In this connection, Icahn has agreed not to run a proxy contest at the company's 2015 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and to vote in favor of the company's nominees at the Annual Meeting. Two of the new directors will be part of the five-person search committee leading the process to find a permanent CEO of Hertz. Following the contemplated appointments and retirements, Hertz will have a nine-person Board, with the Board expanded to 10 directors upon the appointment of a permanent CEO. Under the agreement-in-principle, the company's shareholder rights plan will be amended to increase the triggering percentage to 20% and to implement other changes. The agreement-in-principle remains subject to negotiation and execution of definitive documentation.
