    Reading Time: 4 minutes

    STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–United Rentals, Inc. (NYSE: URI) (“URI”) today announced that its
    subsidiary, United Rentals (North America), Inc. (“URNA”), has priced an
    offering of $750 million principal amount of 5.25% Senior Notes due 2030
    (the “Notes”) in a registered public offering.

    The Notes offered by URNA will rank:

    • equally in right of payment with all of URNA’s existing and future
      senior indebtedness,
    • effectively junior to any of URNA’s existing and future secured
      indebtedness to the extent of the value of the assets securing such
      indebtedness, and
    • senior in right of payment to any of URNA’s existing and future
      subordinated indebtedness.

    URNA’s obligations under the Notes will be guaranteed on a senior
    unsecured basis by URI and certain of URNA’s domestic subsidiaries.

    Aggregate net proceeds from the sale of the Notes are expected to be
    approximately $741 million after underwriting discounts and commissions
    and payments of estimated fees and expenses. URNA intends to use the net
    proceeds from its offering of the Notes and additional borrowings of
    $133 million under its senior secured asset-based revolving credit
    facility to redeem all $850 million principal amount of its 5.75% Senior
    Notes due 2024 at a redemption price of 102.875% plus interest accrued
    to, but excluding, the date of redemption, and to pay related expenses.
    Pending the payment of the redemption price for the 5.75% Senior Notes
    due 2024, the net proceeds from the offering of the Notes will be
    applied to reduce borrowings under URNA’s senior secured asset-based
    revolving credit facility (the “ABL Facility”). URNA expects to then
    borrow under the ABL Facility to fund the redemption.

    Morgan Stanley, BofA Merrill Lynch, Wells Fargo Securities, Citigroup,
    Scotiabank, MUFG, Barclays, Deutsche Bank Securities and J.P. Morgan are
    the joint book-running managers for the offering, with Morgan Stanley
    serving as the lead book-running manager.
