Maxim Group Begins Coverage on HyreCar (NASDAQ:HYRE)

“Offering a platform for connecting car owners to ride-sharing drivers fills a large, unmet need in a fast-growing market. We expect hyper-growth — 58% average annual revenue growth rate over the next three years — as driver demand for cars is running at 10x the existing supply of vehicles approved by ride-sharing companies. Signing up new auto dealerships to add cars to the platform, and new insurance coverage plans should accelerate revenue and gross margins as we believe HYRE is on path to become a much larger, profitable company. We initiate coverage with a Buy rating and $10 price target based on 4x EV to our 2020E revenue and supported by our DCF analysis.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.
