CNH Global N.V. announces that the credit, insurance and financial service offerings of its Case Credit and New Holland Credit brands have been combined and re-branded as "CNH Capital" effective May 1, 2005, in the U.S. and Canada.

The North American re-branding effort reinforces with dealers and customers the ties to CNH Global, the financial and industrial resources and expertise behind the Case and New Holland brands of agriculture and construction equipment. The company's financial services business already operates as CNH Capital in Europe, Latin America and Australia. In the U.S. and Canada, the transition to CNH Capital will be gradual and ongoing as the Case Credit and New Holland Credit names are phased out of company materials.

"Even though our name has changed, our commitment to our dealers and customers has not," said Mario R. Ferla, president of CNH Capital. "We will continue to deliver financial products that lead the industry. And, our equipment lending experts will continue to service our customers' needs, to ensure that our financial solutions work for them."
