Additional First Quarter 2022 Highlights and Recent Developments

  • New driver signups to the platform in the first quarter of 2022 were up 10% quarter over quarter

  • Entering Q2, revenue growth has accelerated and is currently pacing towards $10.2 million to $10.7 million for the second quarter of 2022

  • Recurring operating expenses decreased by close to 20% compared to Q1 of 2021

  • Commercial bookings represented more than 70% of all cars rented on the platform

  • Utilization remained high for large commercial fleets listed on the platform, hovering between 80%-90% during Q1

"HyreCar’s first quarter revenue rose to $9.6 million in the quarter and our gross margins remained in excess of 30% even in a more seasonally challenged quarter with weather-related insurance claims. March was our strongest revenue month in the company’s history and that momentum has continued in the second quarter with similarly strong April and the first half of May. Based on quarter to date performance, we are forecasting Q2 revenue of $10.2 million to $10.7 million. We also expect continued gross margin growth and anticipate ending the year around 40%," said Joe Furnari, HyreCar’s Chief Executive Officer. "We anticipate macro tailwinds to continue to drive revenue and ADRs higher as used car prices level off, car supply is anticipated to be supported by our warehouse credit facility initiative, and demand continues to grow for gig services."

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. See the reconciliations of these measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP measure below in this press release.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Discussion

Total revenue in the first quarter of 2022, increased approximately 28% to $9.6 million, compared to $7.4 million, in the first quarter of 2021. Revenue growth over and above the 5% increase in rental days was driven by favorable pricing in the first quarter.

Gross profit totaled $2.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increase of $0.2 million or 3.4% from $2.7 million recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2021. On a sequential basis, gross margin experienced a slight seasonal decline to 31% from 34% in the December 31, 2021 quarter due to more accidents per rental day in the winter season as well as continued trends in inflation for car parts and vehicles.

Operating expenses, consisting of general and administrative, sales and marketing, and research and development expenses, totaled $8.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a decrease of approximately 17% compared to $9.9 million recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2021. On a cash basis, operating expenses were $7.1 million during the quarter, down $0.3 million from the December 31, 2021 quarter already close to the medium-term Company’s targeted recurring goal of $7 million cash operating expenditures per quarter. The first quarter savings were achieved through renegotiating agreements and a continued focus on reducing non-growth related expenses.

Net loss totaled $(5.3) million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, a favorable decrease of $1.9 million or approximately 26.1% over the $(7.2) million net loss recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The decrease in net loss was attributable to a slightly higher gross profit coupled with the aforementioned significant reduction in operating expenses realized in the first quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA (which is a non-GAAP financial measure as described above) totaled $(4.1) million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, an increased loss of $(0.7) million or 20.6% from $(3.4) million recognized for the prior year quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash totaled $11.0 million as of March 31, 2022.

Although the Company believes that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company cannot guarantee such outcomes. HyreCar may not realize its expectations, and its beliefs may not prove correct. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by these forward-looking statements as a result of various important factors, including, without limitation, market conditions and the factors described in the section entitled "Risk Factors" in HyreCar’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and HyreCar’s other filings made with the U.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement HYRE’s financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, HYRE presents certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, specifically adjusted EPS. These non-GAAP financial measures, which are defined below, should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

HYRE is presenting these non-GAAP financial measures to assist investors in seeing HYRE’s operating results through the eyes of management and because HYRE believes that these measures provide a useful tool for investors to use in assessing HYRE’s operating performance against prior period operating results and against business objectives. HYRE uses the non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

The accompanying tables provide more detail on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures described above and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. HYRE has not reconciled adjusted EPS guidance to GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share, respectively, because HYRE does not provide guidance for the reconciling items between these measures and GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share, respectively. As certain of the items that impact GAAP net income and/or GAAP net income per diluted share cannot be reasonably predicted at this time, HYRE is unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation to GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share is not available without unreasonable effort.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the years ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:
