Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Discussion

Total revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2019, increased 50%, to a record $4.8 million, compared to $3.2 million, in the fourth quarter of 2018. Revenue growth in the fourth quarter was primarily driven by rental days increasing 35% from approximately 145,738 in the third quarter to approximately 197,243 in the fourth quarter. Revenues were also impacted by a reduction in new driver incentives, seasonality and timing of commercial car supply onto the platform versus the same quarter in 2018.

Total operating expenses, consisting of sales and marketing, general and administrative, and research and development expenses, were $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $3.6 million in the same year-ago quarter. Operating expenses declined 28% from $6.0 million in the prior quarter. The increase in operating expenses for the year does include $0.4 million in non-cash stock-based compensation costs.

Net loss in the fourth quarter of 2019 totaled $4.9 million, or ($0.31) per share, compared to a net loss of $2.6 million, or $(0.30) per share, in the prior year’s quarter.

A reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income per share is included within this press release.

Cash on December 31, 2019, totaled $10.6 million. This was primarily the result of the completion of a secondary offering in July 2019 so we believe that we have sufficient cash resources to continue operations indefinitely.
