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.
