United Rentals Plans Missouri Grand Opening; Seeks Short-term Amendment to Credit Facility

The new United Rentals branch in Weldon Springs, Mo., will celebrate with a grand opening event on Wednesday, March 29, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. United Rentals experts will demonstrate new equipment technologies and safe operating techniques, and showcase the latest advances in construction productivity.

"While our services are most often associated with professional contractors, we also want to invite local business owners, plant managers and the general public to this event" said Nick Reitz, branch manager. "Our range of professional equipment and supplies gives our customers an advantage in everything from expanding an airport to building a deck."

Customers of United Rentals have access to more than 600 types of equipment and 9,000 contractor supplies. The Weldon Spring branch carries a range of equipment for commercial and industrial construction, renovation and maintenance, including the latest technologies in aerial work platforms. United Rentals also offers equipment delivery, certified safety and professional operator training, and 24-hour emergency response.

In other company news, United Rentals, as previously announced, has delayed reporting final results for 2004 and 2005 as well as for 2005 interim periods. The company is working diligently to accomplish the filing of its annual reports on Form 10-K and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, including these financial statements, by March 31.

As a precautionary measure, the company announced last week that it is seeking a short-term amendment from the lenders under its secured credit facility to allow the company until April 28, 2006, if necessary, to complete these statements and make these filings.

Greenwich, Conn.-based United Rentals is No. 1 on the RER 100.
