Dollar Thrifty's Shareholders Reject Hertz's $1.46 Billion Takeover Offer

Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. shareholders today rejected Hertz Global Holdings Inc.’s $1.46 billion takeover offer.

The vote, at a special shareholders meeting in Chicago, was 11.8 million shares for the Hertz offer compared with 13.8 million shares against it, according to Bloomberg News.

Hertz stated yesterday it would immediately terminate the merger agreement with Dollar Thrifty if shareholders voted against the proposal.

Avis Budget said yesterday if the Hertz deal does not go through it “will continue to actively pursue the acquisition of Dollar Thrifty, including commencing an exchange offer at our recent offer price no later than 10 business days after the meeting.”

Avis Budget said it “will continue to actively pursue antitrust clearance. As previously disclosed, Avis Budget has committed to sell assets representing $325 million of revenues (of which not more than $250 million are U.S.), demonstrating our commitment to attaining antitrust approval.”

Additionally, Avis Budget said it would add a $20 million breakup fee to its Dollar Thrifty merger deal if the proposal does not win regulatory approval.

Dollar Thrifty released this statement:
