HyreCar’s (HYRE) 4Q revenues grew 42% year-over-year to $7 million and fared better than the Street’s estimates of $6.84 million. Top-line growth was driven by higher rental days.

The company’s CEO Joe Furnari said, “With the additional cars we are onboarding on a daily basis our rental rates continue to grow and we are well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities in rideshare and delivery as states continue to re-open.” (See HyreCar stock analysis on TipRanks)
