Palm Beach, FL – August 12, 2022 – FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary – The automotive fuel market is expected to continue to rise even as the electric market grows. A recent report from Research Corridor says that the global automotive oil & fuel market size is expected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period 2020 to 2027, and other reports have projected that the automotive fuel delivery system market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% (2022 – 2032). The reports say that: “The rising demand for automobiles is expected to boost market revenues for the global automotive fuel delivery system market. The fuel delivery system is an important part of an automobile because it transports fuel from the tank to the combustion chamber in the cylinder head. The storage tank, Engine Control Unit (ECU), pressure regulators, fuel pumps, fuel injectors, and throttle position sensor are all part of the automobile fuel delivery system. The global automotive fuel delivery system market is directly related to automobile demand, as rising automobile demand drives sales of automotive fuel delivery systems. Although fuel delivery systems are used in all types of vehicles regardless of fuel type, such as gasoline or compressed natural gas (CNG), slight modifications to the fuel delivery systems are made depending on the fuel used.” Active companies in the markets this week include EzFill Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EZFL), Sunoco LP (NYSE: SUN), ARKO Corp. (NASDAQ: ARKO), UGI Corporation (NYSE: UGI), Delek Logistics Partners, LP (NYSE: DKL).
Research Corridor added: “The increasing sales of high-performance cars and supercars are one of the key drivers supporting the growth of the automotive fuel delivery system market. Performance-oriented vehicles reach top speeds and are outfitted with a specially designed drivetrain in a short period of time. In terms of technological development, an increase in the sales of high-performance cars is expected to drive the growth of the global automotive fuel delivery system market. The global automotive fuel delivery system market is expected to expand as sales of automobiles in various segments such as two-wheelers, passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy commercial vehicles increase. The increasing demand for alternative fuels such as CNG and LNG is expected to drive demand in the global automotive fuel delivery system market.”
EzFill Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: EZFL) BREAKING NEWS: EzFill Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results — Revenue Increased 103% year over year to $3.76 Million From $1.85 Million — Average Margin per Gallon rose 32%, to $0.49 Compared to $0.37 in 2Q21 — Expanded Operations to West Palm Beach, Tampa and Orlando — EzFill Holdings, Inc. (“EzFill” or the “Company”), a pioneer and emerging leader in the mobile fueling industry, announced today its financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2022 (“2Q22” or “second quarter 2022”).
2Q 22 Highlights (in US$, except gallons delivered)
|Q2 2022||Q2 2021|
|Total Gallons Delivered||789,970||607,765|
|Avg. Margin per Gallon||$0.49||$0.37|
|* See end of this press release for reconciliation to US GAAP|
Commenting on the second quarter results, Mike McConnell, EzFill’ s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our performance in the second quarter reflects the continued execution of our business plan, as we demonstrated strong year over year revenue growth in both the three months and six months periods. We also delivered strong sequential revenue growth from the first quarter as gallons delivered rose by 34%, from 591,505 gallons to 789,970 gallons. Equally important is that we’ve been able to increase our fuel margins during a period of time in which we saw dramatic increases and volatility in fuel prices which had been building for some time but went parabolic at the onset of the war in Ukraine.
“We’ve added approximately 40 new fleet customers since the beginning of the year, representing a potential volume growth of approximately 1.2 million gallons annually. We’ve grown our fleet to 3034 delivery vehicles as of the end of Q2, with more planned for delivery being delivered as we continue to see growing demand for our services throughout Florida. Commercial customers account for the most of our revenues, but it’s important to note that the growth we’re experiencing in new commercial customers is having a dramatic impact on reducing our dependence on any one customer. We now count one of the largest grocers in the US as one of our commercial customers, and we look forward to building on that success. We remain focused on growing the consumer end of the business, and to that end we recently launched a new marketing campaign aimed at building brand awareness. The on-demand mobile fueling business continues to benefit from both the ongoing decline in the number of gasoline stations and consumer preference for on-demand, onsite delivery. And as the only company to provide fuel delivery in three vertical segments – EzFill continues to be well positioned to capitalize on these trends.” CONTINUED… Read the EzFill full press release by going to: https://ir.ezfl.com/news-events/press-releases
