TULSA, Oklahoma -- Rental car company Hertz Global Holdings says it will acquire a Illinois based fleet leasing firm Donlen Corporation for $250 million.

On July 11, 2011, Hertz extended its $70.97 a share offer for Dollar Thrifty to August 5, 2011.

The Hertz offer is valued at $2.05 billion.

Dollar Thrifty is scheduled to announce second quarter 2011 financial results prior to the markets opening on August 8, 2011.
