     On July 27, 2005, Aaron Rents, Inc. (the "Company") issued a press release
to announce its financial results for the second quarter of 2005. A copy of the
press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1.

     The press release presents certain revenue and earnings information
excluding the Company's revenues and profit on the dispositions of its
investments in Rainbow Rentals, Inc. stock in the second quarter of 2004 and in
Rent-Way, Inc. stock in the second quarter of 2005.

     Because the Company is not primarily engaged in the business of buying and
selling securities for trading purposes, management believes that presentation
of non-GAAP financial measures such as its revenues and earnings excluding the
effect of these stock transactions is useful because it allows investors and
management to evaluate and compare the core operations of the Company from
period to period in a more meaningful manner than relying exclusively on GAAP
financial measures. Non-GAAP financial measures, however, should not be
considered in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures calculated
and presented in accordance with GAAP.

     As used herein, "GAAP" refers to accounting principles generally accepted
in the United States.
