LOS ANGELES, Feb. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HyreCar Inc. (OTC: HYRE) (“HyreCar” or the “Company”), the carsharing marketplace for ridesharing and food and package delivery services, today announced that, pursuant to its previously disclosed process to evaluate potential strategic alternatives meant to maximize shareholder value for the Company, the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) has retained Northland Capital Markets (“Northland”) as its financial advisor. With assistance from Northland and its other advisors, the Board will assess a full range of strategic alternatives, including a sale, merger, divestiture, recapitalization, going private transaction, additional financing, and other significant transactions. To date, the Company has received multiple executed NDAs in consideration of a potential transaction or strategic partnership.

The Board has not set a timetable for the conclusion of its evaluation of strategic alternatives and has not made any decisions related to strategic alternatives at this time.

There can be no assurance that this evaluation will result in any definitive documentation to consummate one or more transactions, or other strategic changes or outcomes, or, that the terms of any such transactions, changes, or outcomes will be favorable. Even if the Company enters into a definitive agreement, the Company may not be successful in completing a transaction, change or outcome, or, if it completes such a transaction, change or outcome, it may not ultimately enhance stockholder value or deliver expected benefits. If the Company is unable to complete a transaction, change or outcome, it may be required to seek bankruptcy protection or other alternatives for restructuring and resolving its liabilities.

The Company does not expect to comment further with respect to this evaluation unless or until the Board has approved a specific course of action or the Company has otherwise concluded that further disclosure is appropriate or legally required.
