Tague as Chief Executive Officer of HGH and The Hertz Corporation (“THC” and together with HGH, “Hertz” or the “Company”) and a director of Hertz.  A copy of the press release issued by HGH is attached as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.  Mr. Tague commenced employment with Hertz on November 21, 2014, succeeding interim Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Brian MacDonald, who was reappointed to his role as Chief Executive Officer of Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation.
Prior to joining Hertz, Mr. Tague, age 52, served as Chief Executive Officer of Greatwide Logistics Services, LLC, where he oversaw the merger between Greatwide Logistics Services and Cardinal Logistics Management, Inc. in 2013, creating one of the largest U.S. providers of dedicated transportation.  Mr. Tague has since served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the combined company, Cardinal Logistics Holdings.  Mr. Tague previously spent eight years at United Airlines, Inc. and UAL Corporation, where he served in a number of leadership roles, including President and Chief Operating Officer.  He served as President of United Airlines and Executive Vice President of UAL Corporation until the closing of Uniteds merger with Continental Airlines in 2010.  In that role, Mr. Tague was responsible for all airline management functions, including actions to modernize the fleet.
In connection with Mr. Tague’s appointment as Chief Executive Officer, the Company and Mr. Tague executed a term sheet, which is summarized below, setting forth the material terms of an employment agreement, equity award agreements and a change in control agreement.  These employment arrangements, which contemplate a significant equity investment by Mr. Tague and provide a substantial amount of Mr. Tague’s compensation in the form of equity-based awards that vest subject to the satisfaction of both service and performance goals, are designed to align Mr. Tague’s interests with those of the Company’s stockholders.  The Board currently anticipates that Mr. Tague will receive no further grants of equity awards through the end of 2017.

November 21, 2014 through December 31, 2017
Equity Investment
Mr. Tague has offered to invest $2,000,000 of his own funds in shares of HGH common stock, which he has committed to hold at least through December 31, 2017 or an earlier termination of employment.  The Board endorses Mr. Tague’s investment as demonstrative of his commitment to the Company.

· 50% of the option grant (the “performance options”) will vest on December 31, 2017, subject to the satisfaction of revenue efficiency metrics in respect of the period from 2015-2017 to be developed by the Compensation Committee of the Board with input from Mr. Tague, and Mr. Tague’s continued employment through the vesting date.   The performance options will expire no later than June 30, 2020.

Qualifying Termination
In the event that Mr. Tague’s employment were terminated by the Company without cause, by Mr. Tague for good reason or due to death or disability, Mr. Tague would be entitled to vesting of the stock options and performance stock units described above, prorated based on the portion of the Employment Period elapsed as of the date of termination, and with performance metrics deemed satisfied (in the case of the transition options) or satisfied at target levels (in the case of the performance options or performance stock units).  These vesting terms shall apply to the transition options only in the event of a qualifying termination (i) prior to a determination by the Board that Mr. Tague has not attained the business plan goal or (ii) if the business plan goal has been attained, prior to January 1, 2016.  Any vested options shall remain exercisable for 90 days following the date of such termination.  If Mr. Tague were to remain employed through the end of the Employment Period, his vested options would remain exercisable until the expiration of the applicable term on any termination other than for cause.
Mr. Tague is not entitled to participate in any of the Company’s severance policies, and will not be entitled to any cash severance benefits on account of a termination of employment other than in connection with a change in control pursuant to the change in control agreement referenced immediately below, other than accrued amounts and certain relocation benefits.
