Highlight of Business Operations:

We are one of the largest equipment rental providers in North America. We operate through a network of 454 rental locations across ten regions in 40 U.S. states and three Canadian provinces and service customers primarily in the industrial or non-construction, and non-residential construction markets. For 2010, we generated 85.9% of our revenues from equipment rentals, and we derived the remaining 14.1% of our revenues from sales of used rental equipment, merchandise and other related items. We believe our focus on high margin rental revenues, active fleet management and superior customer service has enabled us to achieve attractive returns on capital employed over a business cycle.

As of December 31, 2010 Oak Hill, Ripplewood and ACF own 33.6%, 4.3% and 7.3%, respectively of RSC Holdings issued and outstanding common stock.

Our operating regions typically have six to seven districts headed by a district manager overseeing six to seven rental locations and each location is managed by a location manager. As of December 31, 2010 our Canadian region, which is part of the Northern Division, has five districts and 19 rental locations. In 2010, 2009 and 2008, 6.4%, 5.2% and 5.5%, respectively, of our revenue was derived from Canada. As of December 31, 2010 and 2009, 6.2% and 5.4% of our long-lived assets, and 5.1% and 4.3% of our total assets were located in Canada. See Note 19 to our consolidated financial statements for further business segment and geographic information.

We have long and stable relationships with most of our customers, including the majority of our top 20 accounts. During 2010, we serviced approximately 224,000 customers, primarily in the industrial or non-construction, and non-residential construction markets. During 2010, no one customer accounted for more than 2% of our rental revenues, and our top 10 customers combined represented less than 15% of our rental revenues. We do not believe the loss of any one customer would have a material adverse effect on our business.

The industrys principal end-markets for rental equipment are industrial or non-construction, non-residential construction and residential construction markets. While the construction industry has to date been the principal user of rental equipment, industrial or non-construction companies, utilities and others are increasingly using rental equipment for plant maintenance, turnaround projects and other operations. According to U.S. Department of Commerce data (which is preliminary and has not been adjusted for inflation), the value of non-residential construction put in place in the United States increased approximately 10% in 2008 compared with 2007 and decreased 8% in 2009 compared to 2008, and decreased 14% in 2010 compared to 2009.
