"Our operational turnaround continues to move forward as reflected by our fourth consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue and adjusted earnings growth," said Kathryn V. Marinello, president and CEO of Hertz Global. "We are balancing our priorities of targeting a higher-quality revenue mix, while making investments in our operations, brands, and technologies to optimally position the company for long-term, sustainable growth."

Adjusted corporate EBITDA for international RAC decreased 11% compared with a year ago driven by increased direct vehicle operating expenses and vehicle depreciation.
