DropCar Announces Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019


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 period ended March 31, 2019 and provided an update on the results of initiatives implemented to conserve cash on hand while focusing the business on its most profitable clients and segments.

Spencer Richardson (News - Alert), DropCar's Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We remain focused on accelerating our business towards profitability, as evidenced by the last two quarters. These quarters have seen the streamlining of our back end operations, coupled with major gains to our overall field driver efficiency lead to significant improvement in gross margins compared to prior quarters."

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

(i) completed the conversion of its B2C business to a self-park model, which has shifted from a significant driver of losses to now a growing positive gross margin business for the quarter ended ending March 31, 2019, compared to the prior quarter ended March 31; and

(ii) increased growth in B2B managed services revenues by 44% for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2018, which was primarily a result of the expansion of existing contracts and changes to the Company's B2B pricing model.

"For the second quarter of 2019, we are continuing our efforts to focus our resources on reducing expenses while shepherding strategic growth to enable the company to help maximize opportunities for enhancing shareholder value," added Mr. Richardson.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 versus Three Months Ended March 31, 2018

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2019 decreased $593,000, or 35%, to $1,099,000, as compared to $1,692,000 for the same period in 2018, as DropCar Operating revenue decreased by $695,000, or 51%, due to the discontinued "Steve" parking and valet on-demand service. This was partially offset by an increase in B2B revenue of $101,915, or 44%, to $335,000, as compared to $234,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, and an increase in "Will" valet on-demand service revenue of $35,000, or 52%, to $102,000, compared to $67,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

Cost of revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2019 totaled $1,127,000, a decrease of $1,169,000, or 51%, compared to $2,296,000 recorded for the three months ended March 31, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in the Company's valet workforce and attributable to decreases of $1,011,000 in wages and related expenses, $123,000 in repairs and damages, $75,000 in travel and $51,000 in cost of gas and other service sold, partially offset by an increase of $98,000 in parking garage fees and insurance costs.

The Company's $1,976,000 net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2019 was comprised of $1,977,000 operating loss from DropCar Operations and offset by $1,700 of interest income. This compared to a net loss of $4,481,000 for the same period in 2018, a reduction of 56%.

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 versus Three Months Ended December 31, 2018

This was offset by an increase in monthly subscription revenue of $11,000, or 2%.

Cost of revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2019 totaled $1,127,000, a decrease of $123,000, or 10% compared to $1,250,000 recorded for the three months ended December 31, 2018. This decrease was primarily due to $43,000 in wages and related expenses, $45,000 in damages, $15,000 in travel, $36,000 in other service cost, partially offset by increase of $17,000 in parking garage fees, insurance and gas expenses.
