Ahern Rentals, Inc. ("Ahern or the Company"), a leader in the equipment rental
industry, today announced that on Monday, January 14, 2013, the United States
District Court Judge Larry R. Hicks dismissed Ahern`s appeal and vacated his
stay order entered on December 21, 2012, which stayed an order entered by
Bankruptcy Judge Bruce T. Beasley refusing to extend the Company`s exclusive
right to file a plan of reorganization. 

Howard Brown, Chief Financial Offer for Ahern, stated, "Needless to say, we are
very disappointed in the ruling by Judge Hicks and immediately filed an appeal
with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals."
