LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2020-- HyreCar Inc. (NASDAQ: HYRE), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and delivery, today reported financial results and provided a corporate update for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

“HyreCar’s first quarter revenues grew 20% sequentially to $5.8 million and through the first two and a half months of the first quarter we were on pace to exceed $6.0 million in quarterly revenue, exhibiting the leverage and growth capabilities of HyreCar’s platform,” said Joe Furnari, Chief Executive Officer of HyreCar. “We are very happy that our weekly rental days are back to over 17,000 - within 5% of our first quarter average of 17,800 and we continue to see acceleration in the month of May. We believe that the combination of states reopening for ride-share and the increase in demand for delivery services, reflected in our weekly rental numbers, should allow us to continue to see steady revenue growth in the coming quarters.”

First Quarter 2020 Financial Discussion

Total revenue in the first quarter of 2020 increased 65%, to a record $5.8 million, compared to $3.5 million, in the first quarter of 2019. Revenue growth in the first quarter was primarily driven by increased booking revenue that rose 16% during the quarter as net rental days increased from approximately 197,000 in the fourth quarter 2019 to approximately 229,000 in the first quarter. Revenues were also impacted by a reduction in new driver incentives, seasonality and timing of commercial car supply onto the platform.

Total operating expenses, consisting of sales and marketing, general and administrative, and research and development expenses, were $6.3 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $3.2 million in the same year-ago quarter.

Net loss in the first quarter of 2020 totaled $4.1 million, or ($0.25) per share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $(0.14) per share, in the prior year’s quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter was ($3.3) million, or $(0.20) per share, after excluding other income and non-cash stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, and changes to accrued liabilities. A reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income per share is included within this press release.

Cash at March 31, 2020 totaled $7.8 million, an increase of $1.5 million from $6.3 million on March 31, 2019, and following the receipt of the approximately $2 million PPP Loan from our primary banking partner JPMorgan Chase on April 13, 2020, cash on hand as of May 14, 2020 is in excess of $8 million.

You should not place reliance on these forward-looking statements, which include words such as “could,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “expect,” “may,” “continue,” “predict,” “potential,” “project” or similar terms, variations of such terms or the negative of those terms. 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. S. Securities and Exchange Commission. All such statements speak only as of the date made. Consequently, forward-looking statements should be regarded solely as HyreCar’s current plans, estimates, and beliefs. Investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

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 EBITDA. 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.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with GAAP measures as part of our overall assessment of our performance, including the preparation of our annual operating budget and quarterly forecasts, to evaluate the effectiveness of our business strategies, and to communicate with our board of directors concerning our financial performance. Our definitions may differ from the definitions used by other companies and therefore comparability may be limited. In addition, other companies may not publish these or similar metrics. Furthermore, these measures have certain limitations in that they do not include the impact of certain expenses that are reflected in our consolidated statements of operations that are necessary to run our business. Thus, our Adjusted EBITDA should be considered in addition to, not as substitutes for, or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We compensate for these limitations by providing a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the related GAAP financial measures, revenue and net loss, respectively. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure and to view Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with their respective related GAAP financial measures.

The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss to Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019:
