Hertz Drops Deutsche

Hertz Global Holdings has dropped Deutsche Bank Securities as an underwriter of Hertz’s upcoming $1.6 billion IPO. The move came after Hertz discovered that a Deutsche employee had forwarded an apparently-improper email to around 175 institutional clients. Hertz was bought out from Ford Motor Co. last year for around $15 billion by Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, Carlyle Group and Merrill Lynch Global Private Equity. www.hertz.com< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
