Settlement removes an obstacle for national exchange listing and corporate name/symbol change

Company to accelerate growth through new vehicle purchases, expansion of campus strategy, and car sharing partnerships with local municipalities

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EVmo, Inc. (OTC: YAYO), a leading provider of vehicles to the rideshare and delivery gig economy industry, today announced the settlement of the Hamlin v. YayYo, Inc. et al litigation in the US District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division. The agreement is subject to the court approval which we expect to be approved. The Company’s portion of the settlement was $1 million paid out in equal installments every 3 months over the coming year. Executive Chairman Terren Peizer provided his personal guarantee for the whole amount due to the plaintiffs.

“We are pleased to put this litigation behind us,” stated Terren Peizer, Executive Chairman of EVmo. “This lawsuit has been an obstacle that has impacted our ability to uplist to a national listed exchange and prevented the Company from changing its name and ticker symbol. Despite constraints related to this previously outstanding litigation, including capital constraints, the team has continued to successfully execute our business model, delivering back-to-back quarters of record revenues in the first half of 2021 and ending the second quarter at a revenue run rate of more than $12 million.” EVmo previously reported second quarter 2021 revenue up 67.8% over Q2 2020 and 15.6% over Q1 2021. “Importantly, this near 70% growth rate was in the absence of significant capital deployed. I am so confident in our prospects that I happily provided my personal guarantee,” continued Peizer.

CEO Stephen Sanchez added, “With current fleet utilization at more than 90% we are vigorously pursuing opportunities for further expansion and new verticals including major university and city car-sharing partnerships. We anticipate a $10 million equity capital raise, which, when consummated, will pave the way to unlock an additional $7.5 million from our previously announced debt financing with Energy Impact Partners, without the fees and restrictions associated to the initial debt tranche.”

As stated in the Company’s prior releases, at the margin, EVmo’s business model dictates that every $10 million in debt and or equity capital raised should enable the Company to purchase approximately 4,000 vehicles. This should translate to approximately $80 million in annual revenue for every $10 million of capital raised at the margin. The Company anticipates scaling to a 25% EBITDA margin.
