UPDATE 1-Hertz to restate results for 2011-2013, shares slip

(Adds details, share move)

June 6 (Reuters) - Car rental company Hertz Global Holdings Inc said it would restate financial results for the past three years to correct accounting errors from 2011.

The company also said its quarterly results were likely to be below analysts' expectations due to costs associated with the accounting review.

Hertz shares fell nearly 10 percent in premarket trading.

The company's audit committee had concluded that financial statements for 2011 should no longer be relied upon, Hertz said in a regulatory filing on Friday. (http://r.reuters.com/has89v).

A committee review may require Hertz to make adjustments also to the financial statements for 2012 and 2013.

Hertz said it would not hold its conference call scheduled for June 9 to discuss first-quarter results.

The company's U.S. rental car revenue per day fell 1.6 percent in the qaurter ended March 31, hurt by excess fleet and the loss of the Easter holiday.

Easter fell on April 20 this year.

Hertz shares had closed at $30.49 on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday.
