Item 3.01
Item 8.01
Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.
Other Events.
As previously disclosed, on December 13, 2022, HyreCar, Inc. (the “Company”) received a letter (the “Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department (the “Staff”) of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) notifying the Company that, based upon the Company’s non-compliance with the $35 million market value of listed securities (“MVLS”) requirement set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(2), the Company’s securities would be suspended from trading on and delisted from The Nasdaq Capital Market unless the Company requested a hearing before a Nasdaq Hearings Panel (the “Panel”) to appeal Nasdaq’s delisting determination.
Following receipt of the Notice, the Company timely requested a hearing before the Panel to appeal Nasdaq’s delisting determination, which stayed the Company’s suspension from trading on and delisting from The Nasdaq Capital Market pending the Company’s hearing with the panel, which was originally scheduled for February 2, 2023. 
As previously disclosed, the Company holds a 1% membership interest in HyreDrive, LLC (“HyreDrive”), which is a joint venture between the Company and AmerDrive Holdings, Inc., the managing member and holder of the remaining 99% membership interest in HyreDrive (“AmeriDrive”). Also as previously disclosed, the Company entered into a Performance Guaranty in favor of the Trustee (as defined below) under a Base Indenture, dated as of September 2, 2022 (the “Base Indenture”), by and between AmeriDrive Funding LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HyreDrive, as issuer, (the “JV Sub”) and Wilmington Trust, National Association, not in its individual capacity, but solely as trustee (the “Trustee”) and securities intermediary (the “Securities Intermediary”), as supplemented by a Series 2022-1 Supplement to Base Indenture, dated as of September 2, 2022 (the “Series Supplement”), by and among the Issuer, AmeriDrive, HyreDrive, the Company, Credit Suisse AG, New York Branch, certain noteholders, note purchasers, conduit investors and funding agents, and the Trustee and Securities Intermediary. As previously disclosed, proceeds from the financing obtained pursuant to the Series Supplement and the Base Indenture were intended to be used to purchase vehicles for the primary purpose of expanding the strategic relationship between AmeriDrive and the Company, intended to create a larger national network of vehicle supply for the Company’s technology platform. As of January 31, 2023, approximately $24 million of financing had been obtained pursuant to the Series Supplement and the Base Indenture.
By letter dated January 5, 2023, Credit Suisse AG, New York Branch, and Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch (collectively, the “CS Entities”), delivered to the JV Sub, HyreDrive, AmeriDrive, the Company and the Trustee reserving the ability of the CS Entities to exercise (directly or through the Trustee) any and all rights and remedies under the Series Supplement and related documents and/or applicable law as a result of the determination by the CS Entities that a breach of a financial covenant had occurred, which the CS Entities advised had resulted in the occurrence of a default under the Series Supplement (the “Specified Default”). The January 5, 2023 letter notified the recipients that the CS Entities would be monitoring the situation and would decide in their sole discretion whether or not to exercise rights and remedies they hold.
Subsequent to receipt of the January 5, 2023 letter, the Company was apprised by AmeriDrive that it was in active discussions with the CS Entities to obtain forbearance of the Specified Default, the amendment or waiver of the applicable financial covenant and/or replacement financing.
On January 12, 2023, a further notice was delivered to the JV Sub and the Trustee by Credit Suisse AG, Cayman Islands Branch, as Class A Noteholder (“CS”), declaring a liquidation event with respect to certain notes issued by the JV Sub pursuant to the Series Supplement. Also on that date, CS instructed the Trustee to commence to liquidate all vehicles previously purchased by the JV Sub. Again, the Company was apprised by AmeriDrive that it continued in active discussions with the CS Entities in an effort to find an alternative to liquidation. A letter dated January 27, 2023, effective as of January 30, 2023, to the JV Sub, HyreDrive, AmeriDrive and the Company was received from the Trustee directing the JV Sub to take various actions to facilitate such liquidation, and directing the Company to cause the JV Sub to take such actions. On February 1, 2023, the Company received confirmation from the CS Entities that no alternatives to liquidation had been identified and that the liquidation would be proceeding.
The liquidation of the vehicles purchased by the JV Sub with proceeds from the financing pursuant to the Series Supplement and the Base Indenture is expected to have an adverse impact on the Company’s ability to generate revenues and improve its overall financial condition. After careful consideration, the Company determined that, as a result of these additional challenges, it would not be able to regain compliance with the MVLS requirement for continued listing. Accordingly, the Company notified Nasdaq on February 1, 2023 of its intention to withdraw from the Nasdaq hearing process.

The Company’s common stock has been suspended from trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market and commenced trading on the OTC Pink Market as of February 3, 2023. The Company anticipates that its common stock will be delisted from The Nasdaq Capital Market on and effective 10 days after the filing of a Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Company has commenced active efforts to obtain additional financing and, on a parallel path, to explore a full range of strategic alternatives. The Company’s review of strategic options and alternatives could result in, among other things, a sale, merger, consolidation or business combination, asset divestiture, partnering, licensing or other collaboration agreements, or potential acquisitions, recapitalizations or restructurings, in one or more transactions, or continuing to operate with our current business plan and executing our strategic realignment plan discussed above. The Company may incur substantial expenses associated with identifying, evaluating and pursuing potential strategic alternatives. The Company’s board of directors has not set a timetable for the conclusion of its review of strategic alternatives, and there can be no assurance that this process will result in any financing or strategic transaction to maximize value for the Company’s stockholders.
