Hertz Posts Record Revenue for Q4 and 2012


Hertz Global Holdings broke records in its just-reported Q4 and 2012 results. For the quarter, the company's revenue totaled $2.3 billion, a new all-time high. That was also 15% higher than the $2.0 billion of the same period the previous year. Non-GAAP net income was $141 million ($0.33 per diluted share), a 35% improvement over Q4 2011's $104 million ($0.24).
