NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements which are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). These statements may be identified by such forward-looking terminology as “may,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential,” “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. Our forward-looking statements are based on a series of expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections about our company, are not guarantees of future results or performance and involve substantial risks and uncertainty. We may not actually achieve the plans, intentions or expectations disclosed in these forward-looking statements. Actual results or events could differ materially from the plans, intentions and expectations disclosed in these forward-looking statements. Our business and our forward-looking statements involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties, including the risks and uncertainties inherent in our statements regarding:

 

 

the impacts of COVID-19, or other future pandemics on our business, results of operations, financial position and cash flows;

 

 

our ability to effectively manage our growth and maintain and improve our corporate culture;

 

 

the potential benefits of and our ability to maintain, our relationships with ridesharing companies, and to establish or maintain future collaborations or strategic relationships, and from time to time to obtain additional funding;

 

 

our marketing capabilities and strategy;

 

 

our ability to maintain a cost-effective insurance program;

 

 

our industry being in the early stages of growth;

 

 

our history of operating losses, and the accuracy of our estimates regarding expenses, future revenue, capital requirements and needs for additional financing;

 

 

our investments in new and enhanced products and offerings, and the effect of these investments on our results of operations;

 

 

our ability to retain the continued service of our key professionals and to identify, hire and retain additional qualified professionals;

 

 

our competitive position, and developments and projections relating to our competitors and our industry;

 

 

our ability to manage risks related to technology systems and security breaches;

 

 

the outcome of pending, threatened or future litigation;

 

 

our ability to comply with existing, modified, or new laws and regulations applying to our business;

 

 

those factors discussed in “Part I, Item IA. Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

All of our forward-looking statements are as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q only. In each case, actual results may differ materially from such forward-looking information. We can give no assurance that such expectations or forward-looking statements will prove to be correct. The outcome of the events described in these forward-looking statements is subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, including those described in the section titled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. An occurrence of, or any material adverse change in, one or more of the risk factors or risks and uncertainties referred to in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 or this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or included in our other public disclosures or our other periodic reports or other documents or filings filed with or furnished to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") could materially and adversely affect our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risks and uncertainties that could have an impact on the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Except as required by law, we do not undertake or plan to update or revise any such forward-looking statements to reflect actual results, changes in plans, assumptions, estimates or projections or other circumstances affecting such forward-looking statements occurring after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, even if such results, changes or circumstances make it clear that any forward-looking information will not be realized. Any public statements or disclosures by us following this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that modify or impact any of the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q will be deemed to modify or supersede such statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q may include market data and certain industry data and forecasts, which we may obtain from internal company surveys, market research, consultant surveys, publicly available information, reports of governmental agencies and industry publications, articles and surveys. Industry surveys, publications, consultant surveys and forecasts generally state that the information contained therein has been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, but the accuracy and completeness of such information is not guaranteed.

HYRECAR INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

 

NOTE 1 DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Organization and Description of Business

 

HyreCar Inc. (which may be referred to herein as “HyreCar,” the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our”) was incorporated on November 24, 2014 (“Inception”) in the State of Delaware. The Company's headquarter is located in Los Angeles, California. The Company operates a web-based marketplace that allows car and fleet owners to rent their cars to Uber, Lyft and other gig economy service drivers safely, securely and reliably. The condensed consolidated financial statements of HyreCar Inc. are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

Automobile Liability Insurance Program, Uber Agreement, At-The-Market Offering and Equity Line of Credit

 

On May 20, 2021, the Company renewed its Automobile Liability Insurance Program with Apollo 1969 of Lloyd’s until 2023 at our current rates, providing stable predictable insurance pricing for the next two years. Further, the Company has completed integration with Sedgwick, a leading insurance claim processing partner for many companies in rideshare transportation and food delivery.

 

On July 26, 2021, the Company entered into a certain Vehicle Rental Strategic Relationship Agreement with Uber Technologies, Inc. to become an official vehicle solution provider on the Uber platform for both electric vehicles and internal combustion engine vehicles. We are currently piloting the vehicle solutions program with Uber and refining the terms of the program as we gather additional performance data.

 

On November 9, 2021, the Company entered into an Equity Offering Sales Agreement (the “ATM Agreement”), with D.A. Davidson & Co. and Northland Securities, Inc. (collectively, the “Agents"), pursuant to which each Agent acts as the Company’s sales agents with respect to the offer and sale from time to time of shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.00001 (the “Common Stock”), having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $50.0 million in “at-the market-offerings”, as defined in Rule 415(a)(4) under the Securities Act, and pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 (the “Form S-3”) that was previously declared effective by the SEC. Under the Form S-3 based upon our public float at the time we filed our Annual Report on Form 10-K, our public float fell below certain minimum levels and as such, we are subject to, among other requirements applicable to our continuing eligibility to offer and sell securities, the “baby shelf” registration requirements which limits the amounts available under Form S-3, including amounts available under the ATM Agreement. On August 15, 2022, the Company amended the ATM Agreement and filed Supplement No. 1 to the Prospectus Supplement dated November 9, 2021, reducing the aggregate shares to be sold under the ATM program from $50,000,000 to $7,900,000. As of November 14, 2022, we have sold 1,346,265 shares pursuant to the ATM Agreement for total net proceeds of $1,734,502.

 

On August 15, 2022, the Company entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “ELOC Agreement”) with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“Lincoln Park”), pursuant to which the Company has the right to sell up to $15,000,000 in shares of the Company’s Common Stock to Lincoln Park over the thirty-six month term of the ELOC Agreement, subject to certain limitations and conditions as set forth in the ELOC Agreement (such transactions, the “Equity Line of Credit”). In consideration for entering in the ELOC Agreement, the Company issued a one-time commitment fee of 539,633 shares of the Common Stock to Lincoln Park. These amounts will be capitalized as deferred offering costs and will be offset against future proceeds at the end of the term.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with “U.S. GAAP” and include the accounts of the Company. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated.

 

The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2021 included herein was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual consolidated financial statements and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to state fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the periods presented, but are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be anticipated for any future annual or interim period. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of the Company for the year ended December 31, 2021 and notes thereto that are included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Management's Plans

 

We have incurred operating losses since inception and historically relied on equity financing for working capital. Throughout the next 12 months, the Company intends to fund its operations through revenue from operations, current cash reserves and through equity/debt financial instruments including the available ATM Agreement and the Equity Line of Credit. The estimated cash flows combined with opportunities to access capital lead us to believe the Company will have sufficient resources to operate its business for the next twelve months.

 

 

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and the reported amount of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from these estimates. It is reasonably possible that changes in estimates will occur in the near term. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated upon consolidation.

 

 

Joint Venture/Investments

 

The Company elected the measurement alternative to account for the Joint Venture (defined below) and investments. Under the measurement alternative, the carrying value of the non-marketable equity securities are adjusted based on price changes from observable transactions of identical or similar securities of the same issuer or for impairment. Any changes in carrying value are recorded within other income (expense), net in the Company's condensed consolidated statement of operations.

HYRECAR INC.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

The Company’s most significant estimates and judgments involve recognition of revenue and estimates for insurance reserves, and the measurement of the Company’s stock-based compensation.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants as of the measurement date. Applicable accounting guidance provides an established hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company's assumptions about the factors that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. There are three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 

Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

Level 2 - Include other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.

 

The fair value hierarchy also requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.

 

Fair-value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values. These financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable, and accrued liabilities. Fair values for these items were assumed to approximate carrying values because of their short-term nature or they are payable on demand.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purpose of the condensed consolidated statement of cash flows, the Company considers institutional money market funds and all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Restricted Cash

 

Restricted cash consist primarily of amounts held in a restricted bank account at Cogent Bank as collateral for the amount pledged by the Company to secure a revolving line of credit made by Cogent Bank to AmeriDrive, as well as escrow accounts held for our insurance claims processing partner to pay out claims in a timely fashion. Amounts held in escrow for insurance claims payments are netted against claims payable and not included within restricted cash.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are reported net of allowance for expected losses. It represents the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Differences between the amount due and the amount management expects to collect are charged to operations in the year in which those differences are determined, with an offsetting entry to a valuation allowance. As of September 30, 2022 and  December 31, 2021, the Company has a reserve allowance of $50,079 and $50,079, respectively. The Company has a diverse customer base and as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021 the Company had no customers who individually accounted for more than 10% of accounts receivable.

This reserve represents an estimate for both reported accidents, claims not yet paid, and claims incurred but not yet reported and are recorded on a non-discounted basis. The lag time in reported claims for physical damage is minimal and as such represents a low risk of unreported claims being excluded from the loss reserve assessment. The adequacy of the reserve is monitored quarterly and is subject to adjustment in the future based upon changes in claims experience, including the number of incidents for which the Company is ultimately responsible and changes in the cost per claim, or changes to the Company’s insurance policy which dictates what amounts of a claim will be paid by the Company. Effective March 1, 2021, the Company entered into a two-year claim adjusting agreement with Sedgwick which included an escrow account requirement of $1,750,000 to be held by Sedgwick for claim payments. This escrow account is replenished by the Company on a quarterly basis or more frequently dependent on the actual claims paid during that quarter. Separate from the escrow account, as of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, $3,527,923 and $2,330,190, respectively, were included in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets, related to the estimated loss reserve, where the expense is included in costs of revenue. For financial presentation purposes, the amount of escrow balance at quarter end is netted against claims payable to our TPA.

 

 

Effective May 15, 2021, the Company entered into a new policy term for its automobile liability insurance program. As part of this program the Company has paid deposit premiums of $1,500,000 and $250,000 for the primary and excess, respectively which will be available to offset premiums due during the final quarter or offset past due premiums during the policy period.

 

While certain liability claims may take several years to completely settle, the Company's liability exposure limit is generally met in the near term. Due to our limited operational history, the Company makes certain assumptions based on both currently available information to estimate the insurance reserves as well as third party claims adjuster data provided on existing claims. A number of factors can affect the actual cost of a claim, including the length of time the claim remains open, economic and healthcare cost trends, venue, and the results of similar litigation. Furthermore, claims may emerge in future periods for events that occurred in a prior period that differs from expectations. Accordingly, actual losses may vary significantly from the estimated amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements. Reserves are reviewed quarterly and adjusted as necessary as experience develops or new information becomes known. However, ultimate results may differ from the Company’s estimates, which could result in losses over the Company’s reserved amounts. Such adjustments are recorded in costs of revenue.

 

Leases

 

Lease right-of-use assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term, and lease liabilities represent the Company’s obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. Operating lease right-of-use assets and liabilities are recognized when the Company takes possession of the leased property (“Commencement Date”) based on the present value of lease payments over the lease term. The Company estimates the incremental borrowing rate based upon the cost of its own debt financing, current market interest rates and quoted offerings or the rate implicit in the lease. Operating lease right-of-use assets also include any lease payments made at or before lease commencement and exclude any lease incentives received. The lease terms used to calculate the right-of-use asset and related lease liability include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that the Company will exercise that option. Leases with an initial term of 12 months or less are expensed as incurred and are not recorded as right-of-use assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company generates the majority of its revenue from its car sharing marketplace platform that connects vehicle owners and drivers and the related insurance issued for each rental. Vehicle owners and drivers agree to terms of service with the Company in order to use the HyreCar platform and enter into a rental contract that governs each rental. In entering into a rental agreement, the driver is charged in a single transaction: the base rental fee as agreed upon between the driver and vehicle owner, a 15% HyreCar fee on the base rental fee, and a daily insurance charge (“Insurance and administrative fees”), all based on the number of days the vehicle is to be rented within the contract. HyreCar retains 15%-30% of the base rental fee by offering physical damage protection plans and remits the remaining portion to the vehicle owner. The 15% fee collected from the driver and 15-30% retained from the owner are considered “Transaction Fees” and recorded on a net basis as described below. The Company recognizes revenue daily during the rental periods as the Company is required to maintain insurance underlying the transaction and as a customary business practice, a driver can return a vehicle early for a refund of the unused rental period. Drivers currently do not have an option to decline insurance at any point during the transaction.

 

The Company also recognizes revenue from other sources such as referrals, motor vehicle record fees (application fees), late rental fees, and other fees charged to drivers in specific situations.

 

In applying the guidance of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 606, the Company (i) identifies the contract with the customer, (ii) identifies the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determines the transaction price, (iv) determines if an allocation of that transaction price is required to the performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognizes revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

 

Refunds may occur when the driver returns the owner vehicle early based on the terms of the original contract or cancels the rental prior to completing the exchange. In limited circumstances, the Company provides contingent consideration in the form of a rebate that is redeemable only if the customer completes a specific level of transaction over a specific time period. In such cases, the rebate or refund obligation is recognized as a reduction of revenue. The Company defers revenue in all instances when the earnings process is not yet complete.

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2021, the Company had no customers who individually accounted for more than 10% of revenue.

Principal Agent Considerations

 

The Company evaluates our service offerings to determine if we are acting as the principal or as an agent, which we consider in determining if revenue should be reported gross or net. One of our primary revenue sources is a transaction fee made from a confirmed booking of a vehicle on our platform. Key indicators that we evaluate to reach this determination include:

 

 

● 

the terms and conditions of our contracts;

 

 

● 

whether we are paid a fixed percentage of the arrangement's consideration or a fixed fee for each transaction;

 

 

● 

the party which sets the pricing with the end-user, has the credit risk and provides customer support; and

 

 

● 

the party responsible for delivery/fulfillment of the product or service to the end consumer.

 

We have determined we act as the agent in the transaction for vehicle bookings (Transaction Fees), as we are not the primary obligor of the arrangement and receive a fixed percentage of the transaction. Therefore, revenue is recognized on a net basis.

 

For other fees such as insurance, referrals, and motor vehicle records (application fees) we have determined revenue should be recorded on a gross basis. In such arrangements, the Company sets pricing, has risk of economic loss, has certain credit risk, provides support services related to these transactions, and has decision making ability about service providers used.

 

Cost of Revenue

 

Cost of revenue primarily include direct fees paid for insurance to cover the vehicle driver and owner, insurance claim payments and estimated liabilities based on the policy in effect at the time of loss, merchant processing fees, technology and hosting costs, and motor vehicle record fees incurred for paid driver applications. General liability insurance that covers corporate risk from activity on our platform is included in general and administrative costs.

 

Advertising

 

The Company expenses the cost of advertising and marketing as incurred. Advertising and marketing expenses were $1,940,161 and $2,598,370 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

 

Research and Development

 

We incur research and development costs during the process of researching and developing our technologies and future offerings. Our research and development costs consist primarily of non-capitalized development and maintenance costs. We expense these costs as incurred unless such costs qualify for capitalization under applicable guidance.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock awards issued under ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. Under ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the estimated fair value of the award. Stock-based compensation is recognized as expense over the employee’s requisite vesting period and over the nonemployee’s period of providing goods or services. The fair value of each stock option or warrant award is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option valuation model. Restricted shares are measured based on the fair market value of the underlying stock on the grant date.

Net Loss per Common Share

 

The Company presents basic net loss per share (“EPS”) and diluted EPS on the face of the condensed consolidated statements of operations. Basic loss per share is computed as net loss divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. For periods in which we incur a net loss, the effects of potentially dilutive securities would be antidilutive and would be excluded from diluted EPS calculations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, there were 3,850,199 and 691,255 options and warrants excluded, and 1,006,761 and 803,360 restricted stock units excluded, respectively.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company maintains its cash with a major financial institution located in the United States of America which it believes to be credit worthy. Balances are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation up to $250,000. At times, the Company maintains balances in excess of the federally insured limits.

 

Other Concentrations

 

The Company has historically relied on a single insurance broker and one to two underwriters at any given time to provide all automobile insurance on vehicles rentals on the HyreCar platform. There are multiple brokers and carriers who issue this type of insurance coverage, and the Company is regularly reviewing leading insurers in the transportation and mobility sectors as this is an important part of our operations. The Company does not believe the loss of our current broker or underwriters would have a material effect on our operations.

 

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), specifying the accounting for leases, which supersedes the leases requirements in Topic 840, Leases. The objective of Topic 842 is to establish the principles that lessees and lessors shall apply to report useful information to users of condensed consolidated financial statements about the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from a lease. Lessees are permitted to make an accounting policy election to not recognize the asset and liability for leases with a term of twelve months or less. Lessors' accounting is largely unchanged from the previous accounting standard. In addition, Topic 842 expands the disclosure requirements of lease arrangements. Lessees and lessors will use a modified retrospective transition approach, which includes several practical expedients. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2021 for emerging growth companies, with early adoption permitted.

 

The Company has reviewed and adopted the provisions of the new standard starting January 1, 2022 under retrospective modified method. The standard requires all lease to be reported on a company's balance sheets as assets and liabilities. See Other section of Note 5 - Leases for breakdown of lease Liability for the term of the lease.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued guidance that simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions in existing guidance and improves consistency in application by clarifying and amending existing guidance. This guidance is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2021, and interim periods within those annual periods, where the transition method varies depending upon the specific amendment. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in any interim period. An entity that elects to early adopt the amendments in an interim period should reflect any adjustments as of the beginning of the annual period that includes that interim period, and all amendments must be adopted in the same period. The Company has adopted the provisions of the new standard as of January 1, 2022 and it did not have a significant impact on the Company.

 

In January 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-01 which clarifies the interaction of rules for equity securities, the equity method of accounting, and forward contracts and purchase options on certain types of securities. The guidance clarifies how to account for the transition into and out of the equity method of accounting when considering observable transactions under the measurement alternative. The ASU is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim reporting periods within those annual periods, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of this standard did not have a material impact to our consolidated financial statements.

 

Emerging Growth Company Status

 

The Company is an emerging growth company, as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, or the JOBS Act. Under the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies can delay adopting new or revised accounting standards issued subsequent to the enactment of the JOBS Act until such time as those standards apply to private companies. The Company has irrevocably elected to not take this exemption and, as a result, will adopt new or revised accounting standards on the relevant effective dates on which adoption of such standards is required for other public companies that are not emerging growth companies.

The FASB issues ASUs to amend the authoritative literature in ASC. There have been several ASUs to date, including those above, that amend the original text of ASC. Management believes that those issued to date either (i) provide supplemental guidance, (ii) are technical corrections, (iii) are not applicable to us or (iv) are not expected to have a significant impact our condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

 

NOTE 3 COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Settlement and Legal

 

On August 27, 2021, a putative securities class action complaint captioned Baron v. Hyrecar Inc. et al., Case No. 21-cv-06918, was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against the Company; its Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Furnari; and its former Chief Financial Officer, Robert Scott Brogi. This action asserts claims and seeks damages for alleged violations of sections 10(b) and 20(a) of securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The alleged class period is May 14, 2021 to August 10, 2021, inclusive. Pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act, on November 19, 2021, the Court appointed Turton Inc. to serve as Lead Plaintiff. Lead Plaintiff then filed an amended complaint (the “First Amended Complaint”). The First Amended Complaint alleged that defendants made material misrepresentations or failed to disclose material facts that, among other things, the Company had materially understated its expenses and insurance reserves in coordination with a third-party adjuster which Lead Plaintiff alleged was conflicted. On December 27, 2021, the Company and the individual defendants moved to dismiss the First Amended Complaint, arguing that Lead Plaintiff failed to adequately plead that any of the Company’s public statements were materially false or misleading, or that defendants acted with scienter– meaning defendants either knew those statements were false or were deliberately reckless to their truth or falsity at the time they were made. On February 16, 2022, the Court (Hon. Percy Anderson) granted defendants’ motion to dismiss on the basis that Lead Plaintiff failed to adequately plead any of defendants’ statements were materially false or misleading. Because the Court ruled that Lead Plaintiff did not sufficiently plead falsity, the Court did not address the additional arguments regarding scienter at the time. The Court permitted Lead Plaintiff leave to amend its complaint. Plaintiff filed its Second Amended Complaint on March 21, 2022. The Second Amended Complaint asserts the same violations of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5, again alleging, among other things, HyreCar made materially false or misleading statements related to its first quarter 2021 reserves, and by extension misstated expenses and revenues. On April 4, 2022, the Company and individual defendants moved to dismiss the Second Amended Complaint on the basis that Plaintiff failed to plead sufficient facts that would cure the deficiencies identified in the Court’s order on the first motion to dismiss—i.e., that Plaintiff again failed to plead that any statements were materially false or misleading when made—and Plaintiff failed to plead that defendants acted with scienter. On April 21, 2022, the case was transferred to a new judge, and on April 27, 2022, the Court issued a Reassignment Order that, among other things, vacated all hearing dates. The Court subsequently set the hearing for the Motion to Dismiss the Second Amended Complaint for October 20, 2022, and also set a Scheduling Conference for December 8, 2022.  On October 18, 2022, the Court issued an order that the Court found the Motion to Dismiss appropriate for decision without oral argument, and thereby vacated the hearing and took the Motion to Dismiss under submission. As of the date of the preparation of this filing, the Motion to Dismiss remains under submission.   The Company believes that the allegations in this lawsuit are without merit and will continue to vigorously defend against them. The Company’s chances of success on the merits are still uncertain and any possible loss or range of loss cannot be reasonably estimated.

 

Other

 

From time to time, we are a party to various claims and litigation in the normal course of business. As of December 31, 2021 and September 30, 2022, the amounts are immaterial and does not have material impact on consolidated financial statements.

 

We connect drivers and vehicle owners in many tax jurisdictions throughout the United States. After the Supreme Court of the United States decision in South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. (Wayfair) in June 2018, states commenced enacting laws that would require certain online sellers to collect sales and use tax despite not having a physical presence in the buyer’s state. In response to Wayfair, or otherwise, states or local governments may adopt, or begin to enforce, laws requiring us to calculate, collect, and remit taxes on sales in their jurisdictions. A successful assertion by one or more states requiring us to collect taxes could result in tax liabilities, including taxes on past sales, as well as penalties and interest. Based on our analysis of certain state regulations on peer-to-peer activities, we do not believe risk of loss is probable on historical revenue activities. We continuously monitor state regulations as it relates to peer-to-peer vehicle rental activities and will implement required collection and remittance procedures if and when we believe we would become subject to such regulations.

NOTE 7  INVESTMENT

 

On January 28, 2021, the Company announced a new and expanded strategic partnership with AmeriDrive Holdings (“AmeriDrive”) intended to create a national network of vehicle supply and fleet maintenance operations. In connection therewith, the Company entered into a Collateral Pledge Agreement (“Agreement”) with Cogent Bank assigning all right, title and interest in a Company deposit account of $750,000 plus 5% fees to secure a revolving line of credit made by the bank to AmeriDrive. The restricted deposit account was gradually expanded to a $1,500,000 pledge during the quarter ended September 30, 2021 resulting from a greater revolving line of credit for AmeriDrive under the same terms. Further on November 4, 2021, the Company expanded its partnership with Cogent and AmeriDrive in an effort to help drive additional car supply to the Company’s platform. As part of the agreement, the Company agreed to increase the collateral held by Cogent bank by $1,500,000 (now $3,000,000 in total) in exchange for a credit line increase to expand AmeriDrive's vehicle fleet contributed exclusively to the Company platform.

 

In addition, the Company and AmeriDrive formed a joint venture HyreDrive, LLC (“HyreDrive”) that was established for the primary purpose of expanding the parties’ strategic relationship intended to create a larger national network of vehicle supply for the Company’s technology platform. The Company holds a 1% membership in HyreDrive, and AmeriDrive holds a 99% membership interest therein. HyreDrive is a special purpose entity, and, pursuant to generally accepted accounting principles, its assets, liabilities and results of operations will not be consolidated with those of the Company.  HyreDrive has established a bankruptcy remote, wholly owned subsidiary of HyreDrive (the “HyreDrive SPV”) and a titling trust to facilitate the acquisition and financing of vehicles.

 

HyreDrive SPV may from time to time issue series of secured asset-backed notes pursuant to the terms of a base indenture between it and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee and securities intermediary. Proceeds from any asset-backed notes issued will be used to fund all or part of the purchase price of vehicles allocated to a special unit of beneficial interest in a titling trust or to finance the purchase of new vehicles from third parties that will be similarly allocated to such special unit of beneficial interest. 

 

In Q3 of 2022, Hyredrive has begun to fund the purchase of vehicles utilizing the a portion of the warehouse line of credit and such vehicles will be deployed on the HyreCar platform

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2021 included in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. In addition to historical information, this discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors. We discuss certain factors that we believe could cause or contribute to these differences below and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, particularly in the sections entitled Risk Factors and Note About Forward-Looking Statements.

 

Our Company

 

We operate in the car sharing marketplace for ride sharing through our proprietary marketplace platform. The Company has established a leading presence in Transportation-as-a-Service (“TaaS”) through vehicle owners and institutions, such as franchise car dealerships, independent car dealerships and rental car companies, who have been disrupted by automotive asset sharing. We are based in Los Angeles, California and car owners and drivers currently use the platform nationwide. Our unique revenue opportunity for both owners and drivers are providing a safe, secure, and reliable marketplace. We categorize our operations into one reportable business segment: Rental, consisting primarily of our vehicle rental operations in the United States.

 

Business and Trends

 

We generate revenue by taking a fee out of each rental processed on our platform. Each rental transaction represents a ride-sharing service driver (each, a “Driver”) renting a car from a participating car owner (each, an “Owner”). Drivers pay a daily rental rate set by the Owner, plus a 15% HyreCar Driver fee and direct daily insurance costs. Owners receive their daily rental rate minus a 15%-30% HyreCar Owner fee. For example, as of September 30, 2022, the average daily rental rate of a HyreCar vehicle nationally is approximately $$ 39 (“Daily Rental Rate”), plus a 15% HyreCar Driver fee ($$ 6) and daily direct insurance fee of $$ 17 on average, totaling $$ 62 in total daily gross billings paid by the Driver via a payment card transaction. On average approximately 77% of the daily rental is transferred to the Owner via our merchant processing partner. HyreCar earns revenue from the revenue share fees and insurance totaling approximately $$ 32 per day. Accordingly, the GAAP reportable revenue recognized by HyreCar is $$ 32 in this example transaction as detailed in the following table:

  $ 32  

 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2022, the Company monitored the market's competitive prices to maintain good performance levels. The dynamic pricing of the daily gross and net rental rates were adjusted depending on the variations in demand and competition. The daily average gross rental rate for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $$ 62, an increase of $3 or 5% from the $59 daily average gross rental rate recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021.

 

Gross billings is an important measure by which we evaluate and manage our business. We define gross billings as the amount billed to Drivers, without any adjustments for amounts paid to Owners or refunds. It is important to note that gross billing is a non-GAAP measure and as such, is not recorded in our condensed consolidated financial statements as revenue. However, we use gross billings to assess our business growth, scale of operations and our ability to generate gross billings is strongly correlated to our ability to generate revenue. Gross billings may also be used to calculate net revenue margin, defined as the company's GAAP reportable revenue over gross billings. Using the definition of net revenue margin and the example above, HyreCar's net revenue margin is equal to approximately 51% ($30,330,491 HyreCar's GAAP revenue over $59,331,768 Total Gross Billings) for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. A breakout of revenue components is provided in the section of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q titled “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and the notes to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

 

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

 

Gross Billings

 

We define gross billings as the amount billed to Drivers, without any adjustments for amounts paid to Owners or refunds. Gross billings include transactions from both our revenues recorded on a net and a gross basis. It is important to note that gross billing is a non-GAAP measure and as such, is not recorded in our condensed consolidated financial statements as revenue. Management believes gross billings provides useful information to investors and others in understanding our ability to generate revenue since our ability to generate gross billings is correlated to our ability to generate revenue. In addition, management uses gross billings to assess our business growth and ability to scale operations. Gross billings may also be used to calculate net revenue margin, defined as the Company's GAAP reportable revenue over gross billings. The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

 

Adjusted EBITDA

 

Adjusted EBITDA is a key performance measure that our management uses to assess our operating performance and the operating leverage in our business, 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. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management team. Because Adjusted EBITDA facilitate internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis, we use these measures for business planning purposes. We expect Adjusted EBITDA will increase over the long term as we continue to scale our business and achieve greater efficiencies in our operating expenses.

 

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net loss, adjusted to exclude:

 

 

● 

other income (expense), net;

 

 

● 

provision for income taxes;

 

 

● 

depreciation and amortization;

 

 

● 

stock-based compensation expense; and

 

 

● 

prior expenses expected to be settled in stock included in liabilities.

 

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 condensed 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, net loss. 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.

Our operating results are subject to variability due to seasonality, macroeconomic conditions such as the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and other factors. Car rental volumes tend to be associated with travel and driving holidays, where there is an influx of Uber and Lyft demand. Thus far in 2022.

 

Our objective is to focus on strategically accelerating our growth, strengthening our position as a leading provider of vehicle rental services to ridesharing (Lyft and Uber) and delivery (Door Dash, Instacart, Postmates) drivers, continuing to enhance our customers' rental experience, and controlling costs and driving efficiency throughout the organization. We operate in a high growth industry and we expect to continue to face challenges and risks. We seek to mitigate our exposure to risks in numerous ways, including delivering upon our core strategic initiatives, continued growth of fleet levels to match changes in demand for vehicle rentals, and appropriate investments in technology.

 

Significant changes in our results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2022 include:

 

 

● 

Net rental days totaled approximately 313,100 rental days for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a decrease of approximately 16,000 rental days or 4.8% compared to 329,000 rental days recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021, the dip in rental days can be partially attributed to implementing more stringent car eligibility requirements based on risk analyses; these further constrained car supply, impacting rental days in the short term.

 

 

● 

Revenue totaled $10.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $0.6 million or 6.4% from $9.7 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021 primarily as a result of price optimization and differentiation. The daily average net rental rate for the three months ended September 30, 2022 was $33, an increase of approximately $4 or 13.8% from the $29 daily average net rental rate recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021. Price enhancements were derived leveraging our dynamic pricing model with appropriate risk pricing for insurance and higher rental rates due to the tight car market supply. 

 

 

● 

Cost of revenue totaled $6.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a decrease of $0.3 million or 4.0% from $6.7 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021. While revenue increased, the decrease was primarily a factor of operational improvements despite inflationary pressures on car prices, repairs, and claims.

 

 

● 

Gross profit totaled $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $0.8 million or 27% over the $3.0 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in gross profit was primarily attributed to optimized pricing and operational improvements partially offset by higher insurance and claims-related costs.

 

 

● 

Operating expenses, consisting of general and administrative, sales and marketing, and research and development expenses, totaled $9.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $0.1 million or 1% over $9.1 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase was primarily due to increase legal fees, Stock-based compensation expense and prior year insurance claims processing fees true-up.

 

 

● 

Net loss totaled $(5.4) million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a decrease of $0.8 million or approximately 12% compared to $(6.1) million net loss recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021. The decrease in net loss was primarily driven by the substantial improvement in gross profit. 

 

 

● 

Adjusted EBITDA (which is a non-GAAP financial measure as described above) totaled $(4.1) million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, a decrease of $1.0 million or 19% from $(5.1) million recognized for the prior year quarter ended September 30, 2021. The decrease was primarily driven by the substantial improvement in gross profit described above.

 

 

Management's Plan 

 

We have incurred operating losses since Inception and historically relied on debt and equity financing for working capital. Going forward, the Company intends to fund its operations through increased revenue from operations and the funds raised through sales of its securities, including through the ATM Agreement and the Equity Line of Credit. We completed an underwritten public equity offering on February 9, 2021, consisting of an aggregate of 2,530,000 million shares of our common stock at a public offering price of $11.75 per share, which included the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option. This provided approximately $29.7 million in gross proceeds to the Company, before underwriting expenses and other costs.

 

With approximately 313,100 quarterly rental days in the third quarter of 2022, our annualized rental day run rate is close to 1.3M per year. Our business model and platform allow us to potentially leverage new opportunities and create a larger market with ridesharing, food and package delivery services. Two thirds of the Drivers on our platform are now predominantly delivery oriented and the opportunity is accelerating in the local delivery as a service environment. We continue to expect revenue growth during the remainder of 2022 and beyond as we continue to focus on increasing our car supply to meet the driver demand and other promotional efforts related to our car sharing marketplace platform.

 

As part of our focus to increase car supply, the Company's strategic partnership with AmeriDrive Holdings is intended to create a national network of vehicle supply and fleet maintenance operations and is expanding our operations in the Southeast United States. On February 10, 2021, TrueCar announced a partnership with HyreCar to provide its car sharing marketplace with a modern digital car buying and trade-in solution. The TrueCar partnership offers a potential way to address the automobile trade-in market in a relevant and effective manner for dealers and customers. TrueCar helps create awareness that vehicle dealers can benefit from serving the TaaS industry via the Company's platform. We believe both the AmeriDrive and TrueCar relationships enhance our ability to increase revenue.

 

Throughout the next 12 months, the Company intends to fund its operations through revenue from operations, current cash reserves and through equity/debt financial instruments including the available ATM Agreement, and the Equity Line of Credit. The estimated cash flows combined with opportunities to access capital lead us to believe the Company will have sufficient resources to operate its business. The current top 10 U.S. state markets in our geographic footprint, and our volumes of quarterly rental days and net revenue from the quarters ended September 30, 2020 through September 30, 2022, is detailed below.

 

hyrecarquarterlyrentaldaysan.jpg
 

As used vehicles prices continue to slightly ease down from the unprecedented peak tied to supply chain constraints, our  confidence in using the warehouse line to supply vehicles on a timely basis into the platform to satisfy driver demand has increased. In addition to pursuing traditional organic car listings, we have been exploring partnerships and investments to continue expanding exclusive commercial car supply to the platform from strategic partners, such as our agreement with AmeriDrive and Cogent Bank. Management is focused on driving scale through those partnerships to accelerate cash flow breakeven for HyreCar.

 

Components of Our Results of Operations 

 

The following describes the various components that make up our results of operations, discussed below: 

 

Revenue is earned from fees associated with matching Owners of cars that meet the strict requirements imposed by ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft with Drivers. A Driver will typically rent a car through one transaction via our on-line marketplace. We recognize GAAP reportable revenue primarily from a transaction fee and an insurance fee when a car is rented on our platform when the Company, 1) identifies the contract with the customer, 2) identifies the performance obligations in the contract, 3) determines the transaction price, 4) determines if an allocation of that transaction price is required to the performance obligations in the contract, and 5) recognizes revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation. 

 

Cost of revenue primarily include direct fees paid for driver insurance, insurance claim payments based on the policy in effect at the time of loss, merchant processing fees, technology and hosting costs, and motor vehicle record fees incurred for paid driver applications. 

 

General and administrative costs include all corporate and administrative functions that support our business. These costs also include payroll for officers and operational staff, stock-based compensation expense, consulting costs, professional fees, and other costs that are not included in cost of revenue. Research and development costs are related to activities such as user experience and user interface development, database development and maintenance, and technology related expenses to research, improve, implement, or maintain technology and systems utilized throughout our enterprise. Research and development costs are expensed as incurred. Sales and marketing expenses primarily consist of personnel-related compensation costs, commissions expenses, advertising expenses, and marketing partnerships with third parties. Sales and marketing costs are expensed as incurred.

 

Other income/expense includes non-operating income and expenses including interest income and expense.

The decrease in loss from operations was primarily driven by the substantial improvement in gross profit partially offset by the operating expense savings described above.

 

Other (Income) Expense. Other (Income) Expense totaled ($10,354) for the three months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $8,214 in other income compared to ($2,140) for the three months ended September 30, 2021

Rental days totaled approximately 952,100, a decrease of 11,000 rental days or 1.1% compared to the prior year period. The daily average net rental rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $32, an increase of $5 or 24% from $27 daily average net rental rate recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2021. Gross profit totaled $10.5 million for nine months ended September 30, 2022, an improvement of $4.0 million or 62% over the $6.5 million gross profit recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2022, our principal sources of liquidity were cash and cash equivalents of $9,109,046 compared to $11,499,136 as of December 31, 2021. Cash and cash equivalents include money market deposit accounts denominated in U.S. dollars. We also had additional Restricted Cash balances of $3,018,632 as September 30, 2022 which relates to amounts held in a restricted bank account at Cogent Bank as collateral for the amount pledged by the Company to secure a revolving line of credit made by Cogent Bank to AmeriDrive, as well as escrow accounts held for our insurance claims processing partner to pay out claims. Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash altogether totaled $ 12,127,678 as of September 30, 2022.

 

On November 9, 2021, the Company entered into the ATM Agreement, pursuant to which the Agents act as the Company’s sales agent with respect to the offer and sale from time to time of shares of the Company’s Common Stock having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $50 million in “at-the market-offerings.” Under the Form S-3 based upon our public float at the time we filed our Annual Report on Form 10-K, our public float fell below certain minimum levels and as such, we are subject to, among other requirements applicable to our continuing eligibility to offer and sell securities, the “baby shelf” registration requirements which limits the amounts available under Form S-3, including amounts available under the ATM Agreement, which is currently limited to $7.9 million. As of November 14, 2022, we have sold 1,346,265 shares pursuant to the ATM Agreement for total net proceeds of $1,734,502. 

 

On August 15, 2022, the Company entered into the ELOC Agreement, pursuant to which the Company has the right to sell up to $15,000,000 in shares of the Company’s Common Stock to Lincoln Park over the thirty-six month term of the ELOC Agreement, subject to certain limitations and conditions as set forth in the ELOC Agreement. As of November 14, 2022, we have sold 100,000 shares pursuant to the Equity Line of Credit for total net proceeds of $67,430.

 

We believe our existing cash and cash equivalent assets, together with proceeds from revenue generating activities and access to liquidity through our ATM Agreement, Equity Line of Credit and other equity/debt offerings will be sufficient to meet our working capital and capital expenditures needs over the next 12 months more fully described in “Management's Plan” above.

 

Our future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including, but not limited to our growth, our ability to attract and retain drivers and car owners on our platform, the continuing market acceptance of our offerings, the timing and extent of spending to support our efforts to improve our customer experience, actual insurance payments for which we have made reserves, the timing and extent of investment we are making in policy, government relations, and the expansion of sales and marketing activities. Further, we may in the future enter into arrangements to acquire or invest in businesses, products, services and technologies. We may decide to, or be required to, seek additional equity or debt financing for any of these reasons, or others that may arise. If we are unable to raise additional capital in the future, we may need to curtail expenditures by scaling back certain sales, marketing and development expenses.

 

 

Cash Flows

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $8,582,982 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. This consisted primarily of a net loss of $ (15,095,038) offset by non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $3,337,918 largely driven by the recognition of costs related to restricted stock unit grants. Additionally, there were material increases in accounts payable of $1,411,801, increase in insurance reserve of $1,197,733 and increase in other current assets of $ 511,005 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022.

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $14,472,228 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. This consisted primarily of a net loss of $(22,690,342) offset by non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $6,989,942 largely driven by the recognition of costs related to annual restricted stock unit grants. Additionally, there were increases in insurance deposits of $1,462,171 and accounts payable of $1,420,333 through insurance premium deposits and claims paid as well as accrued liabilities of $1,918,592 primarily driven by the insurance premiums accrual for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 compared to the year ended December 31, 2020 wherein the revised contract allowed deferral of payment for approximately six months. These cash flow increases were partially offset by increase in other current assets of $477,574 and decrease in insurance reserves of $149,430.

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $273,462 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. This reflects the investment in software capitalized as intangible asset during the first two quarters of the year. 

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $6,236,715 for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 which primarily consists of gross proceeds from the sale of common stock of $6,571,232, proceeds from the exercise of stock options of $36,698 and loans from related party of $500,000, partially offset by offering costs of $871,215.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $27,885,256 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, which primarily consists of gross proceeds from the sale of common stock in our February 2021 public offering of $29,727,500, proceeds from the exercise of warrants of $124,540 and stock options of $159,521, partially offset by offering costs of $2,126,305.

 

Capital Management

 

We aim to manage capital so that we will maintain optimal returns to shareholders and benefits for other stakeholders. We also aim to maintain a capital structure that ensures the lowest cost of capital available to the Company. We regularly review the Company’s capital structure and seek to take advantage of available opportunities including financial equity financing and debt leverage to accelerate growth opportunities.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, there were no dividends paid and we have no plans to commence the payment of dividends. We have no current plans to raise capital through the sale of shares of our common stock, but we continue to assess market conditions and the Company’s cash flow requirements to ensure the Company is appropriately funded.

 

There is no significant external borrowing as of September 30, 2022. Neither the Company nor any of the subsidiaries are subject to externally imposed capital requirement.

 

Critical Accounting Policies, Judgments, and Estimates

 

Our condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto are prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements also requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, costs and expenses and related disclosures. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ significantly from our estimates. To the extent that there are differences between our estimates and actual results, our future financial statement presentation, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows will be affected. There have been no material changes to our critical accounting policies and estimates as of September 30, 2022.

 

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

A description of recently issued accounting pronouncements that may potentially impact our financial position and results of operations is disclosed in Note 2 to our financial statements appearing in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Emerging Growth Company Status

 

The Company is an emerging growth company, as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, or the JOBS Act. Under the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies can delay adopting new or revised accounting standards issued subsequent to the enactment of the JOBS Act until such time as those standards apply to private companies. The Company has irrevocably elected to not take this exemption and, as a result, will adopt new or revised accounting standards on the relevant effective dates on which adoption of such standards is required for other public companies that are not emerging growth companies.

 

We will remain an emerging growth company until the earlier of: (1) the last day of the fiscal year (a) ending December 31, 2023, (b) in which we have total annual gross revenue of at least $1.235 billion, or (c) in which we are deemed to be a large accelerated filer, which means the market value of our Common Stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the end of the prior fiscal year’s second fiscal quarter; and (2) the date on which we have issued more than $1.0 billion in non-convertible debt during the prior three-year period.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

The Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item as it is a “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Rule 229.10(f)(1).

 

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, refers to controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact there are resource constraints and management are required to apply judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, evaluated, as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act of 1934). Based on that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2022, due to the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting as described below

 

Material weakness in internal control over financial reporting

 

In preparing our financial statements, our auditors identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2022. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The material weakness identified is as follows:

 

 

● 

Lack of controls to ensure equity-based transactions are identified, accounted for and disclosed.

 

Remediation plan for identified material

 

 

We have implemented or are in the process of implementing measures designed to improve our internal control over financial reporting and remediate the control deficiencies that led to the material weaknesses. Specifically, we have undertaken the following remedial actions:

 

 

● 

We hired new accounting and finance personnel with the appropriate level of public accounting knowledge and experience to oversee financial reporting process.

 

● 

We engaged a nationally recognized public accounting firm to assist use with equity valuations and complex equity transaction.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

Other than the material weaknesses noted above, there was no change in our internal controls over financial reporting, as defined under Rule 13a-af(f) under the Exchange Act, that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

 

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

On August 27, 2021, a putative securities class action complaint captioned Baron v. Hyrecar Inc. et al., Case No. 21-cv-06918, was filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against the Company; its Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Furnari; and its former Chief Financial Officer, Robert Scott Brogi. This action asserts claims and seeks damages for alleged violations of sections 10(b) and 20(a) of securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder. The alleged class period is May 14, 2021 to August 10, 2021, inclusive. Pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act, on November 19, 2021, the Court appointed Turton Inc. to serve as Lead Plaintiff. Lead Plaintiff then filed an amended complaint (the “First Amended Complaint”). The First Amended Complaint alleged that defendants made material misrepresentations or failed to disclose material facts that, among other things, the Company had materially understated its expenses and insurance reserves in coordination with a third-party adjuster which Lead Plaintiff alleged was conflicted. On December 27, 2021, the Company and the individual defendants moved to dismiss the First Amended Complaint, arguing that Lead Plaintiff failed to adequately plead that any of the Company’s public statements were materially false or misleading, or that defendants acted with scienter– meaning defendants either knew those statements were false or were deliberately reckless to their truth or falsity at the time they were made. On February 16, 2022, the Court (Hon. Percy Anderson) granted defendants’ motion to dismiss on the basis that Lead Plaintiff failed to adequately plead any of defendants’ statements were materially false or misleading. Because the Court ruled that Lead Plaintiff did not sufficiently plead falsity, the Court did not address the additional arguments regarding scienter at the time. The Court permitted Lead Plaintiff leave to amend its complaint. Plaintiff filed its Second Amended Complaint on March 21, 2022. The Second Amended Complaint asserts the same violations of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5, again alleging, among other things, HyreCar made materially false or misleading statements related to its first quarter 2021 reserves, and by extension misstated expenses and revenues. On April 4, 2022, the Company and individual defendants moved to dismiss the Second Amended Complaint on the basis that Plaintiff failed to plead sufficient facts that would cure the deficiencies identified in the Court’s order on the first motion to dismiss—i.e., that Plaintiff again failed to plead that any statements were materially false or misleading when made—and Plaintiff failed to plead that defendants acted with scienter. On April 21, 2022, the case was transferred to a new judge, and on April 27, 2022, the Court issued a Reassignment Order that, among other things, vacated all hearing dates. The Court subsequently set the hearing for the Motion to Dismiss the Second Amended Complaint for October 20, 2022, and also set a Scheduling Conference for December 8, 2022.  On October 18, 2022, the Court issued an order that the Court found the Motion to Dismiss appropriate for decision without oral argument, and thereby vacated the hearing and took the Motion to Dismiss under submission.  As of the date of the preparation of this filing, the Motion to Dismiss remains under submission.  The Company believes that the allegations in this lawsuit are without merit and will continue to vigorously defend against them. The Company’s chances of success on the merits are still uncertain and any possible loss or range of loss cannot be reasonably estimated.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

Our business, financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows may be impacted by a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control, including those set forth in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, the occurrence of any one of which could have a material adverse effect on our actual results.

 

There have been no material changes to the Risk Factors previously disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.
