LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HyreCar Inc. (Nasdaq: HYRE), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing, today reported preliminary financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2018.
Second Quarter 2018 Preliminary Financial Results
Estimated revenues for the quarterly period ending June 30, 2018 are expected to be approximately $2.1 million, an increase of 233% when compared to revenues of $0.6 million for the quarterly period ending June 30, 2017. This increase was primarily attributed to customer retention rate, expansion, and new unique users on the company’s site.
Estimated gross profit margin for the quarterly period ending June 30, 2018 is expected to be approximately 40%, an increase when compared to a gross profit margin of 11.4% for the quarterly period ending June 30, 2017. The margin expansion was primarily attributed to the renewal of the company’s insurance contract with AIG, which decreased insurance expenses in the second quarter of 2018.
In the second quarter of 2018, HyreCar had 90,559 rental days on its proprietary platform, an increase of 155% when compared to 35,473 daily active rentals in the second quarter of 2017.
HyreCar’s 2018 second quarter anticipated financial results are preliminary and based on the most current information available and are subject to the completion of the financial statements.
Full Year 2018 Revenue Guidance
For the full year ending December 31, 2018, HyreCar anticipates revenues of at least $10 million, an increase of at least 213% when compared to revenue of $3.2 million for the full year ending December 31, 2017.
“Our record preliminary revenues of approximately $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2018 was a direct result of an increased demand for carsharing services. As we reach critical mass, we are also starting to see some operating leverage in the business, as evidenced by our gross profit margin of 40% in the second quarter of 2018,” said Joe Furnari, Chief Executive Officer of HyreCar. “On the heels of our IPO in June—which provided us with gross proceeds of $12.6 million—we believe we now have the growth capital to aggressively invest in our platform and scale our business meaningfully to capture the market opportunity.”
