Dollar Thrifty sent both companies a letter, asking for a final proposal by early October.

Dollar Thrifty’s board believes that at this point, both Hertz and Avis have the information they need to put forward their best and final offers.
JPMorgan (NYSE:JPM) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) are financial advisors to Dollar Thrifty.
