HyreCar Inc. (HYRE), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing, has reported preliminary unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2018.
Q4 2018 and Full Year 2018 Preliminary Financial Results
Revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018 are expected to be approximately $3.3 million, an increase of approximately 162% when compared to revenues of $1.3 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.
Revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 are expected to be approximately $10.0 million, an increase of approximately 209% when compared to revenues of $3.2 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. The growth in revenue is a result of continued expansion of the Company’s scalable network business model, which now spans across all 50 states in America.
The company expects gross profit for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018 to be approximately $1.9 million, an increase of approximately 2,100% when compared to gross profit of approximately $86,000 in the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017. Gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of 2018 is anticipated to be approximately 58%, compared to 7% in the fourth quarter of 2017.
The company expects gross profit for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 to be approximately $4.9 million, an increase of approximately 1,500% when compared to gross profit of $0.3 million in the fiscal year ended December 31, 2017. Gross profit margin for fiscal 2018 is anticipated to be approximately 49%, compared to 10% in fiscal 2017. This increase was primarily due to greater operating efficiencies as the Company expands its platform.
HyreCar’s 2018 anticipated financial results are preliminary and based on the most current information available and are subject to the completion of the financial statements. The Company anticipates releasing its annual financial reporting at the end of March 2019.
“HyreCar had almost 400,000 rental days on its platform in 2018 as the expansion of dealer inventory drove record preliminary revenues of $3.3 million in the fourth quarter and $10.0 million for the full year 2018,” said Scott Brogi, Chief Financial Officer of HyreCar. “We are also realizing increased operating efficiencies as we scale, as shown by Gross Profit growing to $1.9 million, and as a result our cash burn was dramatically lower in the fourth quarter leaving us with $6.8 million in cash and short-term investments as of the fiscal year end. Now, with almost a year’s worth of growth capital currently in the bank, we are well positioned to reach our stated goal of positive operating cash flow by mid-2019.”
