HyreCar Announces $12.25 Million in Financing to Further Accelerate Growth and Terminates “At-the-Market” Offering

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HyreCar Inc. (NASDAQ: HYRE), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and food and package delivery services, today announced that it had raised $12.25 million in financing. The financing includes an initial tranche of $4.25 million that has been funded and a second tranche of $8 million that is subject to shareholder approval which is anticipated in the first quarter 2023. Less than $1 million in securities issued from the initial tranche will be registered securities and issued off of an S-3 registration statement. The remaining securities from both the initial and second tranches will be issued in a private placement that will be registered with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission in an S-1 registration statement at a later date.

The Company simultaneously terminated the balance of its “at-the-market” equity offering program with D.A. Davidson & Co. (the “ATM Offering”) of $6.2 million from the $7.9 million facility.

The additional capital will accelerate ongoing growth initiatives, including the Company’s joint venture with AmeriDrive to purchase cars through a $100 million revolving line of credit with Credit Suisse and Medalist Partners. To date, the joint venture company has drawn $25 million on the line for the purchase of over 1,300 vehicles, with 1,000 vehicles already acquired for exclusive listing on the HyreCar platform.

The Company’s Interim CEO and CFO, Eduardo Iniguez, arranged the financing. With respect to the registered portion of this offering, Northland Securities, Inc. served as sole Placement Agent and D.A. Davidson & Co. served as Financial Advisor.

The securities were offered in a private placement under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), and/or Rule 506(b) of Regulation D and/or Regulation S promulgated thereunder and have not been registered under the Act, or applicable state securities laws. Accordingly, the securities may not be reoffered or resold in the United States except pursuant to an effective registration statement or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Act and such applicable state securities laws.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the securities, nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state.
