Commenting on the quarterly and full year results, Yehuda Levy, EzFill’s Interim Chief Executive Officer, stated, “2023 was a strong year. We grew revenue by 54%, we significantly grew our fleet business by adding 148 new fleet accounts in 2023, many of which have multiple locations which we currently service in all of our markets, we significantly increased our average margin per gallon in 2023 despite a volatile year for gas prices and a competitive business environment, we closed the year with a gross profit and we were able to achieve all of this while implementing operating efficiencies and bringing our operating costs down.

“As we look forward,” Levy continued, “We hope to continue the strong growth in our customer base. We are also enhancing our technology offerings to help grow our business. We continue to be focused on improving gross profit with a combination of pricing and fees as well as driver and fuel purchasing cost efficiencies. Every member of our team was a key contributor to our achievements this year and I would like to congratulate them all on a great 2023.”

Fourth Quarter 2023 Operational Highlights

  During the fourth quarter of 2023, the Company reported revenue of $5.7 million, up from $4.9 million in the same period last year, an increase of 17% due to higher average fuel prices per gallon and increased gallons delivered. Total gallons delivered in the fourth quarter of 2023 were 1.47 million, an increase of 19% from the prior year period.
  Operating expenses were $2.8 million and $5.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 and 2022, respectively a decrease of 50% due to the company effectively implementing operating efficiencies under the leadership of interim CEO Yehuda Levy.
  Depreciation and amortization of $0.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 was 43% lower than the same period of the prior year.
  Interest expense was higher in the fourth quarter year over year due to loans taken to fund operating expenses.
  The net loss in the fourth quarter was $(3.4) million, compared to $(6.37) million in the same period of the prior year, a decrease of 45% from the prior year period.
  Adjusted EBITDA loss in the fourth quarter 2023 was $(1.5) million as compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(2.6) million in the fourth quarter of 2022 or an increase of 45%.

2023 Fiscal Year Financial Results

  We generated revenues of $23,216,423 for the year ended December 31, 2023, compared to $15,044,721 for the year ended December 31, 2022, an increase of $8,171,702 or 54%. This increase is due to a 39% increase in gallons delivered as well as an increase in the average price per gallon. The additional gallons were in existing as well as new markets.
  Cost of sales was $21,845,574 for the year ended December 31, 2023, resulting in a gross profit of $1,370,849, compared to $(173,513) for the prior year. Our gross profit improved year over year due to higher fuel margins as well as increased delivery fees and driver efficiency.
  We incurred operating expenses of $9,087,223 during the year ended December 31, 2023, as compared to $15,543,145 during the prior year, a decrease of $6,455,922 or 42%. The decrease was primarily due to decreases in payroll, sales and marketing, insurance, technology, and public company expenses.
  Depreciation and amortization decreased in the current year.
  During the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company recorded impairment of $105,506 related to materials purchased for construction of delivery vehicles to reduce the carrying value to the expected realizable value.
  Interest expense increased in the current year due to increased loans taken by the company to fund operations.
  We sustained a net loss of $(10,471,889) for the year ended December 31, 2023, as compared to $(17,505,765) for the prior year, a decrease of $7,033,876 or 40% as a result of the above. Loss per share decreased to $(2.79) from $(5.30) in 2022.

About EzFill

EzFill is a leader in the fast-growing mobile fuel industry, with the largest market share in its home state of Florida. Its mission is to disrupt the gas station fueling model by providing consumers and businesses with the convenience, safety, and touch-free benefits of on-demand fueling services brought directly to their locations. For commercial and specialty customers, at-site delivery during downtimes enables operators to begin their daily operations with fully fueled vehicles. For more information, visit www.ezfl.com.

With the number of gas stations in the U.S. continuing to decline, corporate giants such as Shell, Exxon, GM, Bridgestone, Enterprise, and Mitsubishi have recognized the increasing shift in consumer behavior and are investing in the fast growing on-demand mobile fueling industry, in companies such as Booster and Yoshi. As the only company to provide fuel delivery in three verticals – consumer, commercial, and specialty including marine and construction equipment, we believe EzFill is well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for convenient and cost-efficient mobile fueling options.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), we use non-GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which we use in our financial performance analyses. This measure should not be considered a substitute for GAAP-basis measures, nor should it be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of net interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation expense, provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of our financial results. Non-GAAP measures are not formally defined by GAAP, and other entities may use calculation methods that differ from ours for the purposes of calculating Adjusted EBITDA. As a complement to GAAP financial measures, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA assists investors who follow the practice of some investment analysts who adjust GAAP financial measures to exclude items that may obscure underlying performance and distort comparability.

The following is a reconciliation of net loss to the non-GAAP financial measure referred to as Adjusted EBITDA for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2023 and 2022 (unaudited):
