Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC -- Moody's assigns B1 to Avis' new senior unsecured notes

Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") assigned a B1 rating to Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC's ("Avis") $400 million senior unsecured notes. The issuance does not impact other ratings of Avis, including the Ba3 Corporate Family Rating. Favorable market conditions, rational fleeting and pricing strategies across the industry and Avis' own approach to cost management and customer service should result in an improving credit profile for the company.
