Notes to UNAUDITED Financial Statements

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

HyreCar Inc. (which may be referred to as “HyreCar,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) was incorporated on November 24, 2014 (“Inception”) in the State of Delaware. The Company’s headquarters is located in Los Angeles, California.  The Company operates a web-based marketplace that allows car and fleet owners to rent their idle cars to Uber and Lyft drivers safely, securely and reliably. The financial statements of HyreCar Inc. are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Initial public offering

 

On June 29, 2018, the Company closed its initial public offering (“IPO”), in which the Company issued and sold 2,520,000 shares of common stock at $5.00 per share for gross proceeds of $12,600,000, net of underwriters’ discounts and commissions totaling $1,260,000. Accordingly, net proceeds from the IPO totaled $11,340,000, before deducting offering costs of $569,665.

 

In connection with the closing of the Company’s IPO, all outstanding shares of convertible preferred stock were converted into 2,429,638 shares of common stock.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation – Unaudited Interim Financial Information

 

The accompanying balance sheet as of September 30, 2018, the statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 are unaudited. The unaudited interim financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP for interim financial information, within the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information and disclosures normally included in the annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared on a basis consistent with the audited financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair statement of the Company’s financial position as of September 30, 2018 and results of operations and cash flows for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. The financial data and the other information disclosed in these notes to the interim financial statements related to the three and nine month periods are unaudited. Unaudited interim results are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full fiscal year. These unaudited interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2017 and notes thereto that are included in the prospectus, dated June 26, 2018, that formed a part of the registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-225157), which was declared effective by the SEC on June 26, 2018.

 

Management’s Plans

 

We have incurred operating losses since Inception and historically relied on debt and equity financing for working capital. Throughout the next 12 months, the Company intends to fund its operations through increased revenue from operations and the funds raised through the IPO. Based on our current capital and ability to reduce cash burn if needed, as well as the increasing revenues through normal course of business, we believe that substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern has been alleviated.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from these estimates. It is reasonably possible that changes in estimates will occur in the near term.

 

The Company’s most significant estimates and judgments involve recognition of revenue, calculating the reserves for insurance, the measurement of the Company’s stock-based compensation, including the estimation of the underlying deemed fair value of common stock in periods prior to the date of the Company’s IPO, the estimation of the fair value of market-based awards, the valuation of warrants, allowance for doubtful accounts, and the fair value of financial instruments

 

4

 

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date. Applicable accounting guidance provides an established hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the factors that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. There are three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

  Level 1  - Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

  Level 2  - Include other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.

 

  Level 3  - Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.

  

The fair value hierarchy also requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.

 

Fair-value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values. These financial instruments include cash, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, notes payable, convertible debt and settlement payable. Fair values for these items were assumed to approximate carrying values because of their short-term nature or they are payable on demand.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purpose of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Insurance Liability

 

The Company records a loss reserve for insurance deductible or damage that the Company pays to car owners based on the Company’s policy in relation to the insurance policy in effect at the time, as it may be amended. This reserve is based on changes to the Company’s insurance policy that occurred during the second quarter of 2018 in relation to the insurance policy in effect for car owners. This reserve represents an estimate for both reported accident claims not yet paid, and claims incurred but not yet reported and are recorded on a non-discounted basis. The lag time in reported claims is minimal and as such represents a low risk of unreported claims being excluded from the loss reserve assessment.  The adequacy of the reserve is monitored quarterly and is subject to adjustment in the future based upon changes in claims experience, including the number of incidents for which the Company is ultimately responsible and changes in the cost per claim, or changes to the Company’s policy as to what amounts of the deductible or claim will be paid by the Company.  As of September 30, 2018, $125,957 was included in accrued liabilities related to the loss reserve, where the expense is reflected in the general and administrative within the statements of operations.  No such liability was recorded as of December 31, 2017 as the Company’s policy was such that it was not responsible for any claims at the time.

Offering Costs

 

The Company accounts for offering costs in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 340, Other Assets and Deferred Costs. Prior to the completion of an offering, offering costs were capitalized as deferred offering costs on the balance sheet. The deferred offering costs are netted against the proceeds of the offering in stockholders’ deficit or the related debt, as applicable.

 

Internal Use Software

 

We incur software development costs to develop software programs to be used solely to meet our internal needs and cloud-based applications used to deliver our services. In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 350-40, Internal-Use Software, we capitalize development costs related to these software applications once a preliminary project stage is complete, funding has been committed, and it is probable that the project will be completed and the software will be used to perform the function intended. As of September 30, 2018, the Company has capitalized $67,689 of internal software related costs, which is included in intangible assets in the accompanying balance sheets.

 

Convertible Debt and Warrant

 

Convertible debt is accounted for under the guidelines established by ASC 470-20, Debt with Conversion and Other Options. ASC 470-20 governs the calculation of an embedded beneficial conversion and/or debt issued with warrants, which is treated as a discount to the instruments where derivative accounting does not apply. The discounts are accreted over the term of the debt.

 

The Company calculates the fair value of warrants and conversion features issued with convertible instruments using the Black-Scholes valuation method, using the same assumptions used for valuing employee options for purposes of ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation, except the contractual life of the warrant or conversion feature is used. Under these guidelines, the Company allocates the value of the proceeds received from a convertible debt transaction between the conversion feature and any other detachable instruments (such as warrants) on a relative fair value basis. The allocated fair value is recorded as a debt discount or premium and is amortized over the expected term of the convertible debt to interest expense.

 

Preferred Stock

 

ASC 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, includes standards for how an issuer of equity classifies and measures on its balance sheet certain financial instruments with characteristics of both liabilities and equity.

 

Management is required to determine the presentation for the preferred stock because of the redemption and conversion provisions, among other provisions. Specifically, management is required to determine whether the embedded conversion feature in the preferred stock is clearly and closely related to the host instrument, and whether the bifurcation of the conversion feature is required and whether the conversion feature should be accounted for as a derivative instrument. If the host instrument and conversion feature are determined to be clearly and closely related (both more akin to equity), derivative liability accounting under ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging, is not required. Management determined the host contract of the preferred stock is more akin to equity, and accordingly, derivative liability accounting is not required by the Company. The Company has presented preferred stock within stockholders’ equity (deficit) section of the balance sheet.

 

Costs incurred directly for the issuance of the preferred stock were recorded as a reduction of gross proceeds received by the Company, resulting in a discount to the preferred stock.

 

In connection with the closing of the Company’s IPO, all outstanding shares of convertible preferred stock were converted into 2,429,638 shares of common stock.

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue primarily from insurance and transaction fees when a car is rented on the Company’s platform when (a) persuasive evidence an agreement exists which occurs when the rental contract is signed electronically between the two parties involved; (b) the services have been delivered; (c) the prices are fixed and determinable and not subject to refund or adjustment; and (d) collection of the amounts due is reasonably assured which occurs simultaneously when the booking is accepted and the credit card or account on file is charged. The Company defers revenue where the earnings process is not yet complete.

 

The Company also recognizes revenue from other sources such as referrals, motor vehicle record fees (application fees), late rental fees, and other fees charged to drivers in specific situations.

 

In limited circumstances, the Company provides contingent consideration in the form of a rebate or refund that is redeemable only if the customer completes a specific level of transaction over a specific time period. In such cases, the rebate or refund obligation is recognized as a reduction of revenues. Measurement of the total rebate or refund obligation is based on management estimates using historical data.

 

The following is a breakout of revenue components by subcategory for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017:

Principal Agent Considerations

 

In accordance with ASC 605-45, Revenue Recognition: Principal Agent Considerations, we evaluate our service offerings to determine if we are acting as the principal or as an agent, which we consider in determining if revenue should be reported gross or net. Our primary revenue source is a transaction fee made from a confirmed booking of a vehicle on our platform. Key indicators that we evaluate to reach this determination include:

 

  the terms and conditions of our contracts;

 

  whether we are paid a fixed percentage of the arrangement’s consideration or a fixed fee for each transaction;

 

  the party which sets the pricing with the end-user, has the credit risk and provides customer support; and

 

  the party responsible for delivery/fulfillment of the product or service to the end consumer.

 

We have determined we act as the agent in the transaction for vehicle bookings, as we are not the primary obligor of the arrangement and receive a fixed percentage of the transaction. Therefore, revenue is recognized on a net basis.

 

For other fees such as insurance, referrals, and motor vehicle records (application fees) we have determined revenue should be recorded on a gross basis. In such arrangements, the Company sets pricing, has risk of economic loss, has certain credit risk, provides support services related to these transactions, and has decision making ability about service providers used.

Cost of Revenues

 

Cost of revenues primarily include direct fees paid for driver insurance, merchant processing fees, and motor vehicle record fees incurred for paid driver applications.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock options issued to employees under ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. Under ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost to employees is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award, and is recognized as expense over the employee’s requisite vesting period. The fair value of each stock option or warrant award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option valuation model.

 

The Company measures compensation expense for its non-employee stock-based compensation under ASC 505, Equity. The fair value of the option issued or committed to be issued is used to measure the transaction, as this is more reliable than the fair value of the services received. The fair value is measured at the value of the Company’s common stock or equity award on the date that the commitment for performance by the counterparty has been reached or the counterparty’s performance is complete.

 

Stock-based compensation is included in operating expenses in the statements of operations as follows: 

 

   Three months ended September 30, 2018   Three Months ended  September 30, 2017   Nine months ended September 30, 2018   Nine Months ended  September 30, 2017 
General and administrative   $60,861   $9,607   $1,951,849   $119,710 
Sales and marketing   $37,259   $21,108   $164,004   $92,038 
Research and development   $(11,397)  $11,164   $36,591   $26,011 

  

Loss per Common Share

 

The Company presents basic loss per share (“EPS”) and diluted EPS on the face of the statements of operations. Basic loss per share is computed as net loss divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. For periods in which we incur a net loss, the effects of potentially dilutive securities would be antidilutive and would be excluded from diluted EPS calculations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, there were 2,792,356 and 1,066,733 options or warrants excluded, respectively. As of September 30, 2018, and 2017, there were no debts convertible into common stock. As of September 30, 2018, there were 825,000 shares of restricted common stock (Note 5) that were excluded. 

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company maintains its cash with a major financial institution located in the United States of America which it believes to be credit worthy.  Balances are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000.  At times, the Company maintains balances in excess of the federally insured limits.

 

Other Concentrations

 

The Company relies on two insurance agencies to provide all insurance on vehicles in service. The loss of either of these insurance carriers would have a negative effect on our operations.

New Accounting Standards

 

In June 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2018-07, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting (“ASU 2018-07”). ASU 2018-07 eliminates the separate accounting model for nonemployee share-based payment awards and generally requires companies to account for share-based payment transactions with nonemployees in the same way as share-based payment transactions with employees. The accounting remains different for attribution, which represents how the equity-based payment cost is recognized over the vesting period, and a contractual term election for valuing nonemployee equity share options. ASU 2018-07 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018 with early adoption permitted. The Company is in process of assessing the impact of the adoption of ASU 2018-07 on the financial statements, but it is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU No. 2017-04, Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which simplifies the subsequent measurement of goodwill by eliminating Step 2 from the goodwill impairment test. The amendments also eliminate the requirements for any reporting unit with a zero or negative carrying amount to perform a qualitative assessment and, if it fails that qualitative test, to perform Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test. An entity still has the option to perform the qualitative assessment for a reporting unit to determine if the quantitative impairment test is necessary. This guidance is effective for the annual or any interim goodwill impairment tests in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted for interim or annual goodwill impairment tests performed on testing dates after January 1, 2017. The Company is currently reviewing the provisions of the new standard, but it is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), specifying the accounting for leases, which supersedes the leases requirements in Topic 840, Leases. The objective of Topic 842 is to establish the principles that lessees and lessors shall apply to report useful information to users of financial statements about the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from a lease. Lessees are permitted to make an accounting policy election to not recognize the asset and liability for leases with a term of twelve months or less. Lessors’ accounting is largely unchanged from the previous accounting standard. In addition, Topic 842 expands the disclosure requirements of lease arrangements. Lessees and lessors will use a modified retrospective transition approach, which includes several practical expedients. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently reviewing the provisions of the new standard, but it is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) and has issued subsequent amendments to this guidance. This new standard will replace all current guidance on this topic and eliminate all industry-specific guidance. The new revenue recognition standard provides a unified model to determine when and how revenue is recognized. The core principle is that a company should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration for which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017 for public business entities and December 31, 2018 for all other entities. The standard may be applied either retrospectively to each period presented or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption. The Company has elected the extended transition period for complying with any new or revised financial accounting standards afforded to emerging growth companies. As the Company continually considers and reviews the provisions of the new standard, Management does not foresee a material impact to the financial statements as a whole.

 

The FASB issues ASUs to amend the authoritative literature in ASC. There have been several ASUs to date, including those above, that amend the original text of ASC. Management believes that those issued to date either (i) provide supplemental guidance, (ii) are technical corrections, (iii) are not applicable to us or (iv) are not expected to have a significant impact our financial statements.

NOTE 3 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Settlement and Legal

 

In September 2015, a claim was made by certain former founders against the Company for violations of the founders’ agreement. The claimants and the Company entered into an arbitration agreement on April 25, 2016 to settle the claim. The settlement stated each of the claimants would maintain 190,177 shares of their common stock (post reverse split as described in Note 5) restricted per the founders’ agreement with the remaining being remitted back to the Company. However, the shares while not separate in class, would not have voting rights until such shares were sold to a non-affiliated third party. The claimants would be diluted upon subsequent money raises, stock option offerings and vesting, however, any dilution would remain consistent and proportional to the remaining founders’ dilution ratios and would not be diluted more than the founders’ ratios in any current or subsequent money raise. The claimants also received a total of $110,000 paid out over eighteen (18) months starting November 1, 2016. As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, $0 and $24,444 of the balance remained outstanding, all of which are considered short term, respectively.

 

In July 2017, an owner of several vehicles that he was renting through the Company’s platform filed arbitration seeking damages for losses associated with renting his vehicles, specifically losses associated with a claimed stolen vehicle, storage fees, damage/repair fees, an insurance deductible, and purported loss of income due to his inability to rent the stolen/damaged vehicles. In December 2017, the owner also filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court reasserting the same claims. The Company believes this action is without merit and is vigorously defending itself, while also exploring whether the dispute can be settled in an expeditious manner. The Company moved to compel the owner to arbitrate his claims and to stay his Superior Court case. That motion was heard on June 19, 2018 and the court granted the motion to compel arbitration.

 

The Company is involved in claims and litigation from time to time in the normal course of business. At September 30, 2018, the Company believes there are no pending matters, except as noted above, that are expected to have a material adverse effect on the business of the Company, its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

 

Agreements 

 

In November 2017, the Company entered into a 180-day agreement with a third-party broker/dealer to assist in raising funds under a private placement. For their services, they were to receive five percent (5%) of the gross proceeds under the placement as a success fee defined by the agreement, non-callable warrants equal to ten percent (10%) of the aggregate number of shares of common stock, or in the case of non-convertible securities, the aggregate number of shares of common stock issuable as if the non-convertible securities were convertible into common stock at the public stock price on the date of closing if the Company is public or valuation per share on the date of closing if the Company is private (excluding warrants) sold to potential investors in the placement. The warrants were to entitle the holder to purchase securities of the Company at the same terms as issued under the placement, except that the exercise price of the warrants would be 110% of the lesser of (a) the price at which securities (excluding the value of any warrants) are issued or (b) the exercise price of any warrants issued to entities funding the placement. The agreement also called for $20,000 due upon execution of the agreement and non-accountable expense cash fees equal to three percent (3%) of the gross proceeds due and payable immediately upon the closing of the placement. The compensation terms of this agreement were modified on June 22, 2018 prior to the IPO such that 15,445 warrants were issued with a five year term and exercise price of $2.80. The Company valued the warrants similar to stock options in Note 5 which was recorded as a discount on the related debt, Accordingly, the Company recorded $46,600 of interest expense related to the accretion of the discount upon conversion of the 2018 Convertible Notes. See Note 4 for 2018 Convertible Debt related to this agreement. 

 

Other

 

In November 2017, the Company entered into a lease in Los Angeles, California commencing April 1, 2018, with the ability to occupy the facility in January 2018. The lease term is 39 months from the commencement date. Annual base rent is as follows: 2018 - $249,381, 2019 - $342,480, 2020 - $356,145, 2021 - $183,489, respectively. The lease required a deposit of $90,000. Per the lease agreement, the monthly rate will range from $27,708 to $31,167 a month. The Company also rents office furniture and incurs ancillary fees for building services and shared expenses. Rent expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $251,894 and $120,859, respectively.

NOTE 4 – NOTES PAYABLE

 

2016 Convertible Notes Payable

 

From June 2016 to September 2016, the Company issued convertible promissory notes (the “2016 Convertible Notes”) to related parties and third parties with the same terms and conditions totaling indebtedness of $500,000 (the “2016 Convertible Debt”), $150,000 of which was borrowed from related parties. The 2016 Convertible Notes bore interest at 12%, with a default rate of 15% and were due three years from the issuance date. The 2016 Convertible Notes were automatically convertible  in shares of Series Seed 1 Convertible Preferred Stock upon 1) the consummation of an investment in the Company’s equity securities of over $250,000 through a single or series of transactions involving the same party or parties and 2) the occurrence of a liquidity event as defined by the 2016 Convertible Notes. The holders had the option to convert the entire unpaid and outstanding principal amount and any accrued interest thereon under the 2016 Convertible Notes on the maturity date. The conversion price was the lesser of 1) that price per share that was eighty percent (80%) of the purchase price per share of the same class and series of equity securities sold by the Company in a qualifying transaction or liquidity event or 2) an amount equal to $4,000,000 divided by the total number of outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock immediately prior to the transaction or liquidity event on a fully-diluted, as-converted basis.

 

In February 2017, the outstanding balance of the 2016 Convertible Notes was converted into Series Seed 1 Convertible Preferred Stock based on the conversion terms noted above due to the closing of a qualifying investment in equity securities. Accordingly, the 2016 Convertible Debt and accrued interest thereon totaling $36,434 was converted into 943,908 shares of Series Seed 1 Convertible Preferred Stock. Upon conversion, the contingent beneficial conversion feature was no longer contingent, and resulted in a discount and immediate accretion of such discount in the amount of $134,108, which was charged to interest expense in the accompanying statement of operations during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

Interest expense for the 2016 Convertible Debt, including the charge for the beneficial conversion feature, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017 $140,065. There were no such charges in the 2018 periods presented.

 

2017 Notes Payable

 

In April and May 2017, the Company issued promissory notes to related parties totaling $300,000 and a third party totaling $50,000 with the same terms and conditions (collectively, the “2017 Notes”) and issued five year warrants to purchase up to 200,000 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $2.10 per share. The Company calculated the relative fair value of the warrants using a Black-Scholes option pricing model with similar inputs as disclosed for stock options in Note 5, resulting in a discount of $84,031. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company accreted $0, $21,008, $25,025 and $35,216 of this discount to interest expense, respectively. The outstanding balance of the 2017 Notes has been repaid as of September 30, 2018.

 

2018 Convertible Notes and Warrants

 

During the first and second quarter of 2018, pursuant to a securities purchase agreement, the Company issued and sold senior secured convertible promissory notes (the “2018 Convertible Notes”) to accredited investors in the aggregate principal amount of $3,046,281. Gross principal amounts were net of $267,702 withheld for net proceeds of $2,778,579. The Company incurred additional offering costs of $67,882 for a total debt discount of $335,584, which was fully amortized by the IPO date. The 2018 Convertible Notes bore interest at the rate of 13% per annum and were due eight months from the original issue date, which ranged from September to December 2018 (the “Maturity Dates”). The 2018 Convertible Notes provided that the principal and all accrued and unpaid interest on the 2018 Convertible Notes were convertible into shares of common stock at a conversion rate equal to the lesser of $2.5480 per share or seventy percent (70%) of the IPO price per share. Upon pricing the IPO, at the option of the holders, all outstanding principal plus accrued interest underlying the 2018 Convertible Notes was converted into 1,231,165 shares of common stock at a conversion rate of $2.5480. Upon conversion, the contingent beneficial conversion feature was no longer contingent, and resulted in a discount and immediate accretion of such discount in the amount of $368,757 which was charged to interest expense in the accompanying statement of operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

In connection with the issuance of the 2018 Convertible Notes, each holder also received contingent five-year warrants to purchase common stock in an amount equal to 50% of the shares of common stock that the holder was entitled to in connection with the conversion of the holder’s 2018 Convertible Note when such note first became convertible, which was at the time the IPO was priced. Prior to the 2018 Convertible Note being convertible, the holder did not have a right to exercise these warrants. At the IPO pricing date, 615,585 warrants to purchase common stock became exercisable upon the conversion of the outstanding balance of the 2018 Convertible Notes, including accrued interest. The warrants have an exercise price of 125% of the conversion price, or $3.185. The Company calculated the fair value of the warrants at $1,741,334 using a Black-Scholes pricing model. The Company valued the warrants at $2.8288 per warrant using a common stock fair value of $5.00, a term of five years, a volatility of 45% and a risk free interest rate of 2.75%. The Company allocated the debt proceeds on a relative fair value basis between the note and warrant, in which the Company recognized a note discount for $1,107,982. This was immediately recognized in interest expense as of the note conversion date. As of September 30, 2018, all of the warrants were outstanding.

NOTE 5 – STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT

 

Reverse Stock Split

 

The Company effected a 1 for 1.8404 reverse stock split for each share of common stock outstanding on May 17, 2017. Unless otherwise stated, all share information herein has been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the reverse stock split.

 

Preferred Stock

 

The Company is authorized to issue 15,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.00001 par value per share, all of which shares of preferred stock are undesignated. As described in Note 1, on June 29, 2018, at the closing of the IPO, 2,429,638 shares of outstanding Series Seed 1 Convertible Preferred Stock automatically converted into 2,429,638 shares of common stock.

 

Common Stock

 

The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.00001 par value per share.

 

Private Placement

 

Starting in June 2017, the Company undertook a private placement for the sale of common stock for $1.75 per share. During the year ended December 31, 2017, 1,236,588 shares of common stock were sold for gross proceeds of $2,164,029. Relating to this offering, the Company was required to pay the placement agent for the private placement a cash commission equal to 13% of the gross proceeds and issue the placement agent, or its designees, warrant to purchase shares of common stock equal to 10% the amount of monies raised divided by $1.75. Accordingly, as of December 31, 2017, $281,324 in cash commissions have been paid or were payable along with $38,806 in related legal and other fees, both of which were netted against the gross proceeds of the offering. Based on the amounts raised through December 31, 2017, the Company issued the placement agent warrants to purchase 123,659, exercisable at $2.00 per share. The value of these placement agent warrants, for which similar inputs were used compared to stock options below, were both an increase and reduction to additional paid-in capital for a net zero effect on the gross proceeds of the offering.

  

On June 22, 2018, the placement agent warrants that were to be earned per the description in Note 3, were amended to (i) decrease the amount of shares that can be purchased at an exercise price of $2.00 per share to 60,392 shares of common stock and (ii) reduce the remaining 63,267 shares to 28,993 shares at a modified exercise price of $7.50 per share, due to the fact that such placement agent warrants were earned 180 days immediately preceding the filing date of the IPO registration statement.

 

Shares for Services

 

In December 2017, the Company issued 37,755 shares of common stock for payment of $66,070 in accounts payable related to legal services.

Collateralized Restricted Stock Purchases

 

In 2016, the Company issued 1,032,387 shares of restricted common stock to related parties that vest as follows: 33% upon a sale of securities for gross proceeds of at least $250,000 in one or more transactions and the remaining 67% vest monthly over three years, becoming fully vested in April 2019. For consideration of these shares, the related parties entered into note agreements totaling $138,700 that call for the principal and interest to be paid back in ten years from the date of the loan. The notes bear interest at 1%. The loans are secured by the related shares of common stock. On May 31, 2018, the board of directors determined that it was in the best interest of the Company, in order to comply with the requirements of Section 402 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 prior to filing the IPO registration statement with the SEC, to (i) issue a bonus to those related parties serving as an officer and/or director of the Company in the amount owed by each party. Each such related party bonus was used to repay and terminate the note agreements. An aggregate of $131,400 in principal was repaid and terminated along with accrued interest thereon. Remaining balance of $7,392 is outstanding to a related party that is not serving as an officer or director of the Company. As of September 30, 2018, 897,890 shares have vested.

 

Stock Options

 

A summary of our stock option activity for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, is as follows:

 

   Number of shares  

Weighted average exercise

price

   Weighted average remaining contractual life (years) 
             
Outstanding at December 31, 2017   1,021,171   $1.04    9.3 
Granted   557,500    4.11     
Exercised            
Forfeited or expired   (29,340)   1.42     
Outstanding at September 30, 2018   1,549,331   $2.14    9.1 

  

Stock-based compensation expense for stock options for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $86,722 and $41,951, respectively, and $318,018 and $182,307 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, and 2017, respectively.

 

As of September 30, 2018, the total estimated remaining stock-based compensation expense for unvested stock options is $1,395,906 which is expected to be recognized over a weighted average period of 2.41 years.

 

The Company estimates the fair value of stock options that contain service and/or performance conditions using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The range of input assumptions used by the Company were as follows:

 

    Three Months Ended   Nine Months Ended
    September 30,
2018
  September 30,
2017
  September 30,
2018
  September 30,

Expected volatility   45%   45%   45%   40% – 45%
Risk-free interest rate   2.47%   2.33%   2.60%   2.32%
Expected life in years   6.25   5.5   5.39 – 6.25   5.0 – 6.0
Expected dividend yield   0%   0%   0%   0%

 

The Company recognizes stock option forfeitures as they occur as there is insufficient historical data to accurately determine future forfeitures rates.

 

Management estimated the fair value of common stock prior to the IPO date by looking at a market approach which takes into consideration past sales of our common and preferred stock, as well Company developments to date.

 

Subsequent to the period ended September 30, 2018, the Company granted 140,000 stock options exercisable at $2.29 per share.

Restricted Shares

 

A summary of activity with our restricted shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, is as follows:

 

   Number of shares   Weighted average grant date fair value per share 
         
Unvested as of December 31, 2017        
Granted   1,099,285   $5.00 
Vested   (274,285)  $5.00 
Forfeited        
Unvested as of September 30, 2018   825,000   $5.00 

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company granted 264,285 shares of restricted common stock to three consultants for services. All shares of restricted common stock fully vested upon the IPO. Accordingly, stock-based compensation of $1,321,425 was recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company also granted 10,000 shares of restricted common stock to a consultant for services which fully vested upon the IPO. The Company recognized stock-based compensation expense of $50,000 during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 for the vesting of the 10,000 shares of restricted common stock. In addition, the Company also agreed to issue the consultant an aggregate of 825,000 shares of restricted common stock with the issuance of 275,000 shares of restricted common stock upon each of three milestones. Each of the three milestones has a specific target in which the Company must meet or exceed which include i) gross bookings of rentals, ii) average daily active rentals, or iii) market capitalization. As of September 30, 2018, it is not probable that the performance metrics will be met and therefore no compensation expense has been recognized and no shares of restricted common stock have been issued. Unrecognized compensation expense related to the unvested restricted stock is $2,103,750 as of September 30, 2018 based on the market value of the Company’s common stock at September 30, 2018. Actual future expense is dependent on the measurement date and when vesting becomes probable.

 

Warrants

 

Relating to the 2017 Notes as described in Note 4, the Company issued warrants to purchase up to 200,000 shares of common stock with a fixed exercise price of $2.10 per share.

 

Relating to the private placement described above, the Company agreed to issue warrants to the placement agent, equal to 10% the amount of monies raised divided by $1.75. The Company received $2,164,029 in gross funds from the private placement which has earned the placement agent warrants to purchase up to 123,659 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $2.00 per share. On June 22, 2018, such placement agent warrants were amended to (i) decrease the amount of shares that can be purchased at an exercise price of $2.00 per share to 60,392 shares of common stock and (ii) reduce the remaining 63,267 shares to 28,993 shares at a modified exercise price of $7.50 per share, due to the fact that such placement agent warrants were earned 180 days immediately preceding the filing date of the IPO registration statement.

  

Relating to the 2018 Convertible Notes, warrants to purchase up to 615,585 shares of our common stock at a price of $3.185 per share were issued to the holders of such notes, and 15,455 were issued to the broker/dealer.
 
Relating to the IPO, the Company agreed to issue warrants to purchase up to 75,600 shares of common stock to the underwriters in connection with this primary offering. The value of the warrants nets against the equity related funds raised but is added back to equity for a net zero effect on equity.

 

In June 2018, the Company entered into agreements with two service provider firms pursuant to which the Company agreed to pay cash compensation and issue warrants to purchase up to an aggregate amount of 250,000 shares of common stock. The warrants are fully vested and non-forfeitable. The warrants range from three (3) or five (5) years and are exercisable for $5.00. Accordingly, stock-based compensation of $463,000 was recognized in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying statements of operations.

 

The Company used the Black-Scholes pricing model to value the above warrants, which had similar inputs to stock options included in the stock option section above except for the expected life of the warrants, which was set to match the related term of the warrant.

 

As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, all warrants were vested.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our unaudited financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our audited financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2017 included in our final prospectus for our initial public offering of our common stock (the “IPO”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4) of the Securities Act on June 28, 2018, which we refer to as the Prospectus. In addition to historical information, this discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors. We discuss factors that we believe could cause or contribute to these differences below and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including those factors set forth in the section entitled “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Industry Data” and in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the Prospectus.

 

Our Company

 

We operate in the car sharing marketplace for ride sharing through our proprietary platform. The Company has established a leading presence in Mobility as a Service (MaaS) through vehicle owners and institutions, such as franchise car dealerships, independent car dealerships and rental car companies, who have been disrupted by automotive asset sharing. We are based in Los Angeles, California and car owners and drivers can currently use the platform in all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. We believe our unique revenue opportunity for both owners (“Owners”) and drivers (“Drivers”) is providing a safe, secure, and reliable marketplace.

 

We categorize our operations into one reportable business segment: Rental, consisting primarily of our vehicle rental operations in the United States.

 

Business and Trends

 

We primarily generate revenue by taking a fee from each rental processed on our platform and through insurance related fees. Each rental transaction represents a Driver renting a car from an Owner. Drivers pay a daily, weekly or monthly rental rate, plus direct insurance costs and a 10% HyreCar fee. Owners receive their rental rate minus a 15% HyreCar fee. For example if the average weekly rental rate during 2017 of a HyreCar vehicle was $200 (“Weekly Rental”), plus direct insurance costs, plus a 10% HyreCar fee ($20), the total gross billings would have been $290. This gross billing amount is charged to the Driver’s account in one lump sum. $170 or 85% of the weekly rental is subsequently transferred to the Owner. HyreCar earns revenues from the transaction fee of $50 and gross fees from the insurance of $70. Accordingly, the U.S. GAAP reportable revenue recognized by HyreCar is $120 in this transaction (as detailed in the table below).

 

Weekly rental  $200.00    
Direct insurance   70.00    
HyreCar driver fee   20.00   (10% of weekly rental)
HyreCar gross billings   290.00    
Owner payment   170.00   (85% of weekly rental)
HyreCar revenue  $120.00    

 

The revenue model changed with the re-negotiation of our insurance product and implementation of a fixed daily fee. For example, as of April 5, 2018, if the average weekly rental rate of a HyreCar vehicle is $200 (“Weekly Rental”), direct insurance costs are $61, 10% HyreCar variable fee is $20, plus an administration fee of $30, then the total gross billings is $311. This gross billing amount is charged to the Driver’s account in one lump sum. $170 or 85% of the weekly rental is subsequently transferred to the Owner. HyreCar earns revenues from the transaction fee of $50 and gross fees from insurance and administration fees of $91. Accordingly, the U.S. GAAP reportable revenue recognized by HyreCar is $141 in this transaction example (as detailed in the table below).

 

Weekly rental*  $200.00    
Direct insurance and administration fee  $91.00    
HyreCar Variable Driver Fee  $20.00   (10% of weekly rental)
HyreCar Gross Billings  $311.00    
Owner Payment  $170.00   (85% of weekly rental)
HyreCar Revenue*  $141.00    

 

*Rounded and approximate numbers for ease of example. Actuals vary across geography.

 

Gross billings are an important measure by which we evaluate and manage our business. We define gross billings as the amount billed to Drivers, without any adjustments for amounts paid to Owners, refunds or rebates. Gross billings include transactions from both our revenues recorded on a net and a gross basis. It is important to note that gross billings is a non-U.S. GAAP measure and as such, is not recorded in our financial statements as revenue. However, we use gross billings to asses our business growth, scale of operations and our ability to generate gross billings is strongly correlated to our ability to generate revenues. Gross billings may also be used to calculate net revenue margin, defined as the Company’s U.S. GAAP reportable revenue over gross billings. Using the definition of net revenue margin and the example above, HyreCar’s net revenue margin has increased to approximately 45% (Taking the example above: $141 HyreCar’s U.S. GAAP revenue over $311 Total Gross Billings). A breakout of revenue components is provided in MD&A and the financial footnotes.

Our operating results are subject to variability due to seasonality, macroeconomic conditions and other factors. Car rental volumes tend to be associated with driving holidays, where there is an influx of Uber/Lyft demand. Thus far in 2018, we have continued to operate in an uncertain and uneven economic environment marked by heightened geopolitical risks. Nonetheless, we continue to anticipate that demand for vehicle rental and car sharing services will increase in 2018, most likely against a backdrop of modest and uneven global economic growth.

 

Our objective is to focus on strategically accelerating our growth, strengthening our position as a leading provider of vehicle rental services to Uber and Lyft drivers, continuing to enhance our customers’ rental experience, and controlling costs and driving efficiency throughout the organization. We operate in a high growth industry and we expect to continue to face challenges and risks. We seek to mitigate our exposure to risks in numerous ways, including delivering upon our core strategic initiatives, continued growth of fleet levels to match changes in demand for vehicle rentals, and appropriate investments in technology.

 

During 2018:

 

  Our net revenues totaled approximately $6.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and increased 240% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2017 due to higher rental days and increased rental volumes.

 

  In the nine months ended September 30, 2018, our net loss was approximately $8.6 million, as compared to $2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, representing an increase in net loss of $5.7 million.

 

  Our net revenues totaled approximately $2.7 million in the three months ended September 30, 2018 and increased 224% compared to the three months ended September 30, 2017 due to higher rental days and increased rental volumes.

 

  In the three months ended September 30, 2018, our net loss was $1.8 million, as compared to $1.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, representing an increase in net loss of $0.5 million.

Management’s Plan

 

We have incurred operating losses since Inception and historically relied on debt and equity financing for working capital. Throughout the next 12 months, the Company intends to fund its operations through increased revenue from operations and the funds raised through the Company’s IPO. Based on our current capital and increasing revenues through the normal course of business, as well as our ability to reduce cash burn if needed, we believe that substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern has been alleviated.

 

Components of Our Results of Operations

 

The following describes the various components that make up our results of operations, discussed below.

 

Revenue is earned from fees associated with matching Drivers to Owners of idle cars that meet the strict requirements imposed by ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft with Drivers. A Driver will typically rent a car through one transaction via our on-line marketplace. We recognize U.S. GAAP reportable revenue primarily from a transaction fee and an insurance fee when a car is rented on our platform when (a) persuasive evidence that an agreement exists which occurs when the rental contract is signed electronically between the two parties involved; (b) the services have been delivered; (c) the prices are fixed and determinable and not subject to refund or adjustment; and (d) collection of the amounts due is reasonably assured which occurs simultaneously when the booking is accepted and the credit card or account on file is charged. The Company defers revenue where the earnings process is not yet complete. The Company also recognizes revenue from other sources such as referrals, motor vehicle record fees (application fees), late rental fees, and other fees charged to drivers in specific situations.

 

Cost of revenues primarily include direct fees paid for driver insurance, merchant processing fees, and motor vehicle record fees incurred for paid driver applications.

 

Sales and marketing costs include advertising (both on-line and off-line channels), brand awareness activities, conference attendance, conference sponsorship, business development, wages to sales and marketing staff.

 

General and administrative costs include all corporate and administrative functions that support our business. These costs also include stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs, and other costs that are not included in cost of revenues.

 

Research and development costs are related to activities such as user experience and user interphase development, database development and maintenance, App development and any technology related expense that improves and maintains the functionality of our existing platform.

 

Other income/expense includes non-operating income and expenses including interest expense.

Results of Operations

 

Three Months Ended September 30, 2018 compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2017

 

Revenues and Gross Profit. Gross profit of $1,450,250, or approximately 54%, was realized on revenues totaling $2,685,952 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to gross profit of $116,561, or approximately 14%, realized on revenues totaling $828,285 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in revenues of $1,857,667, or approximately 224%, was due to the growth of our business, which resulted from the expansion of our sales team, increased marketing and brand awareness. The implementation of late fees, which effected 2018 but not the comparable 2017 period, a fixed administrative fee component commencing in the second quarter of 2018 and increased fees from partner referrals also contributed to revenue and gross profit expansion.

 

Operating Expenses. Operating expenses, consisting of sales and marketing, general and administrative, and research and development expenses, increased by approximately $1,836,196, or approximately 133%, to $3,219,765 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to operating expenses of $1,383,569 for the three months September 30, 2017. The increase in operating expenses related to the expansion of our sales team which, in turn, resulted in higher revenue levels. Our sales and marketing expenses increased by $743,022 which is attributable to an increase in online advertising, increased sales contractors and compensation. Our general and administrative expenses increased by $730,951 representing an increase in office space, salaries, contractors, operations and support functions. The remaining difference is attributable to research and development, and specifically increased contractors and outside services expense related to maintenance of the technology platform.

The increase in revenues of $4,708,780, or approximately 240%, was due to the growth of our business, which resulted from the expansion of our sales team, increased marketing expenditures and brand awareness. The implementation of late fees, which effected 2018 but not the comparable 2017 period, a fixed administrative fee component commencing in the second quarter of 2018 and increased fees from partner referrals also attributed to revenue growth and gross profit.

 

Operating Expenses. Operating expenses, consisting of sales and marketing, general and administrative, and research and development expenses, increased by approximately $6,534,092, or approximately 223%, to $9,463,776 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to operating expenses of $2,929,674 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Our general and administrative expenses increased by $4,098,582 representing an increase in office space, salaries, contractors, and operations and support functions. Remaining difference is attributable to research and development and specifically increased contractors and outside services expense related to maintenance of the technology platform. Stock-based compensation included in the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 was $2,152,443 and $237,759, respectively, an increase of $1,914,684.

 

Loss from Operations. Our loss from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $6,513,253 as compared to a loss from operations of $2,704,022 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increased loss during 2018 is a direct result of the increased operating costs noted above.

 

Other (Income) Expense. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, interest expense totaled $2,039,719 as compared to interest expense of $175,615 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. The increase was a result of interest charges for beneficial conversion features on convertible debt and the amortization of debt discounts in 2018. In 2017, interest related to the recognition of a beneficial conversion feature totaling $134,108, stated rate of interest on convertible debt outstanding, along with other minor interest charges. Other income and expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 were minor.

 

19

 

 

Net Loss. Primarily as a result of the increased operating expenses noted above, together with the interest expense incurred during 2018, our net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 was $8,597,001 as compared to a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 of $2,881,165.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At September 30, 2018, our cash balance totaled $8,671,099 compared to $213,944 at December 31, 2017. This increase was a result of our IPO in which the Company issued and sold 2,520,000 shares of common stock at $5.00 per share for gross proceeds of $12,600,000, net of underwriters’ discounts and commissions totaling $1,260,000. Accordingly, net proceeds from the IPO totaled $11,340,000, before deducting offering costs of $569,665.

 

At September 30, 2018, our current assets totaled $8,953,338 and our current liabilities totaled $1,243,109 resulting in working capital of $7,710,229 compared to a working capital deficit of $1,337,331 at December 31, 2017. This deficit resulted primarily from a lack of operating capital. Throughout the next 12 months, the Company intends to fund its operations through increased revenue from operations and the funds raised through the IPO. Based on our current capital and ability to reduce cash burn if needed, as well as the increasing revenues through normal course of business, the Company believes it has sufficient capital to operate for the next twelve (12) months.

 

We do not have any contractual obligations for ongoing capital expenditures at this time.

 

Operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 resulted in cash outflows of $4,770,149 which were due primarily to the loss for the period of $8,597,001, partially offset by $4,037,014 non-cash charges.

 

Operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 resulted in cash outflows of $2,020,063, which was due primarily to the loss for the period, partially offset by $414,483 in non-cash charges.

 

Investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 resulted in cash outflows of $36,423 consisting of purchases of property and equipment and investment in internally developed software, reduced by the return of our prior lease deposit. 

 

Investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 resulted in cash outflows of $99,679 consisting of net outflows related to our insurance deposit and a deposit under our prior month-to-month lease.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 totaled $13,263,727 and primarily consisted of net proceeds of $11,340,000 related to the IPO, $2,778,579 in net proceeds from convertible debt, less offering costs of $569,665 and repayments on a note payable of $350,000.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 totaled $1,871,479 and primarily included $300,000 from the sale of preferred stock, $1,441,628 from the sale of common stock, $350,000 from notes payable, net of offering costs of $220,149.

 

Critical Accounting Policies, Judgments and Estimates

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from these estimates. It is reasonably possible that changes in estimates will occur in the near term.

 

20

 

 

Stock Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock options issued to employees under ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. Under ASC 718, share-based compensation cost to employees is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award, and is recognized as expense over the employee’s requisite vesting period. The fair value of each stock option or warrant award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option valuation model.

 

The Company measures compensation expense for its non-employee stock-based compensation under ASC 505, Equity. The fair value of the option issued or committed to be issued is used to measure the transaction, as this is more reliable than the fair value of the services received. The fair value is measured at the value of the Company’s common stock or equity award on the date that the commitment for performance by the counterparty has been reached or the counterparty’s performance is complete.

  

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue primarily from a transaction fee and an insurance fee when a car is rented on the Company’s platform when (a) persuasive evidence that an agreement exists which occurs when the rental contract is signed electronically between the two parties involved; (b) the services have been delivered; (c) the prices are fixed and determinable and not subject to refund or adjustment; and (d) collection of the amounts due is reasonably assured which occurs simultaneously when the booking is accepted and the credit card on file is charged. The Company defers revenue where the earnings process is not yet complete.

 

The Company also recognizes revenue from other sources such as referrals, motor vehicle record fees (application fees), late rental fees, and other fees charged to Drivers in specific situations.

 

In limited circumstances, the Company provides contingent consideration in the form of a rebate or refund that is redeemable only if the customer completes a specific level of transaction over a specific time period. In such cases, the rebate or refund obligation is recognized as a reduction of revenues. Measurement of the total rebate or refund obligation is based on management estimates using historical data.

Transaction fees and insurance fees are charged to a Driver in a single transaction. Drivers currently do not have an option to decline insurance at any point during the transaction. 

 

Principal Agent Considerations

 

In accordance with ASC 605-45, Revenue Recognition: Principal Agent Considerations, we evaluate our service offerings to determine if we are acting as the principal or as an agent, which we consider in determining if revenue should be reported gross or net. Our primary revenue source is a transaction fee made from a confirmed booking of a vehicle on our platform. Key indicators that we evaluate to reach this determination include:

 

  the terms and conditions of our contracts;

  

  whether we are paid a fixed percentage of the arrangement’s consideration or a fixed fee for each transaction;
     
  the party which sets the pricing with the end-user, has the credit risk and provides customer support; and
     
  the party responsible for delivery/fulfillment of the product or service to the end consumer.

 

21

 

 

We have determined that we act as the agent in the transaction for vehicle bookings, as we are not the primarily obligor of the arrangement and receive a fixed percentage of the transaction. Therefore, revenue is recognized on a net basis.

 

For other fees such as insurance fees and motor vehicle records (application fees) we have determined that revenue should be recorded on a gross basis. In such arrangements, the Company sets pricing, has risk of economic loss, has certain credit risk, provides support services related to these transactions, and has decision making ability about service providers used.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We did not have, during the periods presented, and we do not currently have, any off-balance sheet arrangements, as defined under applicable SEC rules.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

A description of recently issued accounting pronouncements that may potentially impact our financial position and results of operations is disclosed in Note 2 to our financial statements appearing in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Emerging Growth Company Status

 

Section 107 of the JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. In other words, an emerging growth company can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have elected to take advantage of the benefits of this extended transition period. Our financial statements may, therefore, not be comparable to those of companies that comply with such new or revised accounting standards.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

The Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Rule 229.10(f)(1).

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, refers to controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact there are resource constraints and management is required to apply judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, evaluated, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded our disclosure controls and procedures were effective, but that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

No change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) has occurred during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business.

 

Set forth below are material updates to pending litigation matters which are more fully disclosed in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

 

In July 2017, an owner of several vehicles that he was renting through the Company’s platform filed for arbitration seeking damages for losses associated with renting his vehicles, specifically losses associated with a claimed stolen vehicle, storage fees, damage/repair fees, an insurance deductible, and purported loss of income due to his inability to rent the stolen/damaged vehicles. In December 2017, the owner also filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court reasserting the same claims. The Company believes this action is without merit and is vigorously defending itself, while also exploring whether the dispute can be settled in an expeditious manner. The Company moved to compel the owner to arbitrate his claims and to stay his Superior Court case. That motion was heard on June 19, 2018 and the court granted the motion to compel arbitration.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

The Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Rule 229.10(f)(1).

 

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

 

Recent Sales of Unregistered Equity Securities

 

On June 1, 2018, the Company agreed to issue a warrant to purchase up to 100,000 shares of common stock to a consultant for services to be rendered. The warrant is exercisable for a period of five years at an exercise price per share equal to the offering price in the IPO, which was $5.00 per share.

 

On June 15, 2018, the Company agreed to issue a warrant to purchase up to 150,000 shares of common stock to a consultant for services to be rendered. The warrant is exercisable for a period of three years at an exercise price per share equal to the offering price in the IPO, which was $5.00 per share.

 

The securities described above were issued pursuant to the exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act.

 

Use of Proceeds from Initial Public Offering of Common Stock

 

On June 29, 2018, we closed our initial public offering of 2,520,000 shares of our common stock at a public offering price of $5.00 per share for an aggregate offering of $12.6 million. The offer and sale of all of the shares in the offering were registered under the Securities Act pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-225157), which was declared effective by the SEC on June 26, 2018. Network 1 Financial Securities, Inc. acted as the managing underwriter for the offering. We received aggregate net proceeds from the offering of $10,770,335, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by us. No offering expenses were paid directly or indirectly to any of our directors or officers (or their associates) or persons owning ten percent or more of any class of our equity securities or to any other affiliates.

 

Information related to use of proceeds from registered securities is incorporated herein by reference to the “Use of Proceeds” section of the Prospectus, which was filed with the SEC on June 28, 2018. There has been no material change in the planned use of proceeds from our offering as described in the Prospectus.
