#NewYork (CNN Business) #Hertz filed for #bankruptcy Friday night, the latest victim of the sudden #economic downturn sparked by the #Covid-19 pandemic.
The #company has been renting cars since 1918, when it set up shop with a dozen Ford Model Ts, and has survived the Great Depression, the virtual halt of US auto production during World War II and numerous oil price shocks. By declaring bankruptcy, Hertz says it intends to stay in business while restructuring its debts and emerging a #financially healthier company.
