as amended, and in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, known as the PSLRA. These statements, as they relate
to United Rentals or RSC Holdings, the management of either such company or the transaction, involve risks and uncertainties
that may cause results to differ materially from those set forth in the statements. These statements are based on current plans,

“guidance” and similar expressions to identify these forward-looking statements that are intended to be covered by the safe harbor
provisions of the PSLRA. Actual results could differ materially from the results contemplated by these forward-looking statements

United Rentals and RSC Holdings. United Rentals and RSC Holdings give no assurance that it will achieve its expectations and
does not assume any responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of the forward-looking statements.
The foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. You should carefully consider the foregoing factors and the other risks and
uncertainties that affect the businesses of United Rentals and RSC Holdings described in the “Risk Factors” section of their
