DropCar Announces Financial Results for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019

Q3 Shows 133% Increase in Gross Profit and 83% Decrease in Net Loss Versus Prior Year as Company Continues Evaluating Strategic Opportunities

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--$DCAR #10Q--DropCar, Inc. (Nasdaq:DCAR) (“DropCar” or the “Company”), a provider of micro logistics technology, mobility services and cloud based software for both the automotive industry and consumers, today announced financial results and the filing of its Form 10-Q for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, including an update on the results of initiatives implemented to conserve cash on hand, while focusing on its most profitable business segments.


Spencer Richardson, DropCar’s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our plan is to continue to focus on our most profitable business segments which has translated into continued improvements to our gross margin. These improvements have also afforded the Company the opportunity to thoroughly explore the best options for strategic growth and alternatives.”

During the past few months, DropCar has taken the following actions to continue to reduce its cash burn and focus on the most profitable segments of its business:

(i) leverage improvements to its in-house technology and data analysis to refine labor scheduling and service pricing models, resulting in the Company transitioning from a gross loss of $399,887 for the quarter ended September 30, 2018 to a gross profit of $131,628, or 133% increase for the quarter ended September 30, 2019; and

(ii) improving efficiency of overall backend and driver field operations while reducing low margin services, resulting in the Company transitioning from a gross loss of $1,658,377 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 to a gross profit of $234,783, or 114% increase for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2019 versus Three Months Ended September 30, 2018

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2019 decreased $294,000, or 21%, to $1,095,000, as compared to $1,389,000 for the same period in 2018, as DropCar Operating revenue decreased by $329,000, or 29%, due to the discontinued “Steve” parking offering. This was partially offset by an increase in “Will” valet on-demand service and DropCar 360 service revenue of $25,000, or 54%, to $71,000, compared to $46,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2018 primarily due to the cancellation of the tip payment to NY valets, as well as an increase in B2B service revenue of $9,000, or 4%, to $234,000 as compared to $225,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2018.

Cost of revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2019 totaled $964,000, a decrease of $825,000, or 46%, compared to $1,789,000 recorded for the three months ended September 30, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease of $825,000 in the Company’s valet and field support workforce.

The Company's $750,000 net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was comprised of $753,000 operating loss from DropCar Operations and offset by $3,000 of interest income. This compared to a net loss of $4,348,000 for the same period in 2018, a reduction of 83%.

Financial Results for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 versus Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 decreased $1,514,000, or 31%, to $3,441,000, as compared to $4,955,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, as (i) DropCar Operating subscription service revenue decreased by $1,510,000, or 40% due to the discontinued “Steve” parking and valet on-demand service, and (ii) a decrease in “Will” valet on-demand service and DropCar 360 service revenue of $220,000, or 45%, to $267,000, compared to $487,000 for the nine months ended September 30th 2018. This decrease was offset by an increase in B2B revenue of $216,000, or 30%, to $926,000, compared to $710,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Cost of revenue during the nine months ended September 30, 2019 totaled $3,207,000, a decrease of $3,407,000, or 52% compared to $6,614,000 recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to $3,207,000 in wages and related expenses, $432,000 in repairs and damages, $197,000 in cost of gas, car wash and other service sold, partially offset by increase of $429,000 in parking garage fees and insurance costs.

The Company's $3,677,000 net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was comprised of $3,693,000 operating loss from DropCar Operations and offset by $16,000 of interest income. This compared to a net loss of $11,802,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, a reduction of 69%.
