Commenting on the first quarter results, Mike McConnell, EzFill’ s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our ability to successfully acquire new customers and execute our strategic plan in the first quarter is a key indicator of the growing recognition of the value of our on-demand mobile fueling business model and increasing demand for our services throughout Florida. We are delivering on our mission to build upon our leadership position in Miami and strategically enter new target markets throughout Florida. We are beginning to see the success of our increased marketing efforts, expanded salesforce and strengthened operational infrastructure as we add a record number of new fleet accounts.”
“As we continue to support a greater number of commercial fleets and build awareness of the convenience, safety and ease of on-demand mobile fueling from both the commercial and consumer side, we will not only see a steady top-line growth, but we expect to maintain our higher average fuel margins. In the coming months, we are focused on leveraging our newly acquired assets and logistical support from Palmdale Oil Company and our increased trucking fleet to support our customers as they expand into new markets, as well as develop our new customer base as interest continues to build from our aggressive marketing and sales efforts,” concluded Mr. McConnell.

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results
During the first quarter of 2022, the Company reported revenue of $2.3 million, up from $1.5 million in the same period of the prior year, representing an increase of 54%, due to higher average fuel prices per gallon and increased gallons delivered. Total gallons delivered in the first quarter of 2022 were 591,505 an increase of approximately 9% from the same period of the prior year. Average margin per gallon increased from $0.36 to $0.47, primarily reflecting the addition of new fleet customers at significantly higher average margins.
Cost of sales was $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $1.4 million in the same period of the prior year. The increase compared to the prior year reflects the increase in sales as well as the hiring of additional drivers to support the growing business.
Operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, were $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2022, as compared to $1.2 million in the same period of the prior year, a net increase of $1.7 million. The major increases were in payroll, sales and marketing, insurance and public company expenses.
Depreciation and amortization of $0.3 million in the first quarter of 2022 was more than double the same period of the prior year and reflects the increase in the truck fleet size and the licensing of technology.
Interest expense decreased year over year in the quarter due to the early repayment in September 2021 of pre-IPO debt, while other income reflects interest income on investments.
The net loss in the first quarter of 2022 was $(3.3) million, compared to $(1.3) million in the same period of the prior year.
Adjusted EBITDA loss in the first quarter 2022 was $(2.5) million as compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(0.7) million in the first quarter of 2021. The increase in first quarter 2022 reflects significant spending on infrastructure to grow the business.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which we use in our financial performance analyses. This measure should not be considered a substitute for GAAP-basis measures, nor should it be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of net interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation expense, provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of our financial results. Non-GAAP measures are not formally defined by GAAP, and other entities may use calculation methods that differ from ours for the purposes of calculating Adjusted EBITDA. As a complement to GAAP financial measures, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA assists investors who follow the practice of some investment analysts who adjust GAAP financial measures to exclude items that may obscure underlying performance and distort comparability.
The following is a reconciliation of net loss to the non-GAAP financial measure referred to as Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:
