Third Quarter 2021 Financial Discussion
Total revenue in the third quarter of 2021, increased approximately 43% to a record $9.7 million, compared to $6.8 million, in the third quarter of 2020. Revenue growth in the third quarter was primarily driven by the higher net rental rate and days.
Gross profit totaled $3.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $0.1 million or 3.4% from $2.9 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2020. The modest increase in revenues and gross profit were primarily attributed to higher net rental rate and days, partially offset by an increase in insurance premiums, claims and merchant fees.
Operating expenses, consisting of general and administrative, sales and marketing, and research and development expenses, totaled $9.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $4.4 million or 93.6% over $4.7 million recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2020. These additional operating expenses were incurred to enable and support growth and scale across all functional areas. These expenses included costs incurred for the enhancement of the technology platform, on-going efforts at stimulating demand and visibility through marketing, as well as growing our customer support/sale organization.
Net loss totaled $(6.1) million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $(4.3) million or approximately 238.9% over the $(1.8) million net loss recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2020. The increase in net loss was driven by the higher cost of revenue and operating expenses as noted above, partially offset by the higher net revenue recognized during the three months ended September 30, 2021.
Adjusted EBITDA (which is a non-GAAP financial measure as described above) totaled $(5.1) million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $(3.5) million or 217.5% from $(1.6) million recognized for the prior year quarter ended September 30, 2020.
Cash, Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash totaled $18.3 million as of September 30, 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement HYRE’s financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, HYRE presents certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, specifically adjusted EPS. These non-GAAP financial measures, which are defined below, should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.
HYRE is presenting these non-GAAP financial measures to assist investors in seeing HYRE’s operating results through the eyes of management and because HYRE believes that these measures provide a useful tool for investors to use in assessing HYRE’s operating performance against prior period operating results and against business objectives. HYRE uses the non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.
The accompanying tables provide more detail on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures described above and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. HYRE has not reconciled adjusted EPS guidance to GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share, respectively, because HYRE does not provide guidance for the reconciling items between these measures and GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share, respectively. As certain of the items that impact GAAP net income and/or GAAP net income per diluted share cannot be reasonably predicted at this time, HYRE is unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation to GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share is not available without unreasonable effort.
