LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–HyreCar Inc. (NASDAQ: HYRE), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and delivery, today reported financial results and provided a corporate update for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.
“HyreCar’s second quarter revenues grew 47%, year-over-year, and down modestly sequentially, to $5.6 million. For a quarter that included our lowest rental weeks, and the full effect of the nation’s COVID shutdown, we believe that this shows 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 approximately 22,000 – and have exceeded the pre-COVID highs in March. 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 sequential revenue growth in the coming quarters.”
Second Quarter 2020 Highlights
- Revenue was $5.6 million, compared to $3.8 million in 2019, an increase of 47%. This was down a modest 3% sequentially from $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2020.
- Adjusted EBITDA of ($1.7 million) or ($0.10) per share, compared to ($1.4 million) or ($0.12) per share in the second quarter of 2019 and a sequential improvement of $1.6 million over the ($3.3 million) or ($0.20) per share in the first quarter of 2020.
- Rental days improved modestly to over 230,000 in Q2 2020 from 229,000 in Q1 2020, despite containing our lowest rental weeks of the year.
- Weekly rental days have rebounded from a floor of 14,000 in early April to now almost 22,000 in early August (see table below).
- 60% of HyreCar Drivers rely on Delivery Services as the main source of income.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Discussion
Total revenue in the second quarter of 2020 increased 47%, to a record $5.6 million, compared to $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2019. Revenue growth in the second quarter was primarily driven by increased numbers of weekly rentals and the expansion to delivery in the quarter that helped weekly rental numbers rebound to pre-COVID levels.
Total operating expenses, consisting of sales and marketing, general and administrative, and research and development expenses, were $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $3.8 million in the second quarter of 2019. This was primarily due to increased Marketing and Sales expenses, as well as General and Administrative expenses, to support higher levels of revenue. Approximately $2.1 Million of this quarterly operating expense was due to Non-Cash Stock-Based Compensation which was mostly one-time in nature to settle prior legal and other expenses in lieu of cash and to increase option pool availability for employees, so cash operating expenses for the quarter were approximately $4.3 Million.
Net loss in the second quarter of 2020 totaled $3.9 million or ($0.22) per share, compared to a net loss of $2.0 million or ($0.17) per share in the same period the prior year.
Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter was ($1.7 Million) or ($0.10) per share after adding back Stock-Based Compensation, although this was a decrease from ($1.4 Million) or ($0.12) per share the prior year, it was a significant sequential improvement from ($3.3 Million) in the prior quarter ended March 31, 2020.
Cash on the balance sheet at June 30, 2020 totaled $7.2 million, a decrease of less than $700,000 from the $7.8 Million on the balance sheet at March 31, 2020 following the receipt of the $2 million PPP Loan from our primary banking partner JPMorgan Chase on April 13, 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement HYRE’s financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“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.
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We use Adjusted EBITDA in conjunction with GAAP financial 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.
