* See end of this press release for reconciliation to US GAAP
Commenting on the third quarter results, Mike McConnell, EzFill’ s Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We grew revenues in all three measuring periods: the third quarter compared to the prior year third quarter; the year-to-date nine-month period compared to the prior year nine-month, and also sequentially from the second quarter of 2022, from which revenues grew 9% and gallons delivered grew 26%. Margin per gallon increased by 16% year over year and has remained strong despite a sharp drop in the price of fuel over the summer.
“We continue to diversify our customer base, with more than 25 new fleet customers added in the third quarter, bringing our year-to-date new fleet customer count to over 75. This is a key measure for us as it not only grows revenue on an aggregate basis, but just as importantly it continues to reduce our dependence on any one customer and improve our overall margin per gallon. When we became a public company, more than 60% of our revenue came from just one customer, while today no one customer accounts for more than 30% of revenue.
“We were also at the forefront of recovery efforts in the Fort Myers area following Hurricane Ian. When Governor DeSantis traveled to the Fort Myers Beach area, he gave special recognition to the efforts of private sector companies, including EzFill, that provided much needed assistance to residents impacted by the storm.”
Finally, we expanded into the Jacksonville area, further adding to our footprint in the Florida market. We will continue to look for opportunities to add new locations where we can grow efficiently. Our main focus remains on growing the commercial fleet sector of the business in all of our existing markets. We are also planning to add retail consumer opportunities, including new products and services, where the economics justify. We will also remain opportunistic about the marine market.”
Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results
During the third quarter of 2022, the Company reported revenue of $4.1 million, up from $1.9 million in the prior year period, a 120% increase, primarily due to a 71% increase in gallons delivered as well as an increase in the average price per gallon. Total gallons delivered in the third quarter of 2022 were 994,447 compared to 580,462 in the prior year period, reflecting new customers in existing and new markets, as well as expansion of certain existing customers to new markets. Average margin per gallon increased to $0.43 from $0.37, primarily reflecting the addition of new fleet customers at higher average margins.
Cost of sales was $4.2 million for the third quarter of 2022 compared to $1.8 million for the prior year period. The increase from the prior year reflects the increase in sales as well as the hiring of additional drivers, primarily in new markets.
Operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, were $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2022, compared to $1.8 million in the prior year period, a net increase of $1.7 million. The major increases were in payroll, sales and marketing, insurance and public company expenses.
Depreciation and amortization increased to $0.48 million in the third quarter of 2022 from $0.24 million in the prior year period, primarily the result of the increase in the fleet of delivery vehicles.
Interest expense decreased in the quarter due to the early repayment in September 2021 of pre-IPO debt and lower cost financing post-IPO.
The net loss in the third quarter of 2022 was $(4.0) million, compared to $(2.3) million in the prior year period.
Adjusted EBITDA loss in the third quarter 2022 was $(3.3) million as compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(1.2) million in the third quarter of 2021. The increased loss in third quarter 2022 reflects increased spending on infrastructure to grow and expand the business in the operating expense areas noted above.
At September 30, 2022, the Company had a cash position of $7.0 million, compared with $16.9 million at year end 2021. The Company had no long-term debt and had outstanding borrowings under its line of credit of $1.0 million as of quarter end.

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. As the only company to provide fuel delivery in three vertical segments - consumer, commercial, and specialty including marine, we believe EzFill is well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for convenient and cost-efficient mobile fueling options.
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.

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 months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021:
