Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Performance Guaranty
On September 2, 2022, HyreCar Inc. (the “Company”) executed and delivered a Performance Guaranty in favor of the trustee under a Base Indenture (as defined below) for the benefit of certain holders of asset-backed notes issued under the Base Indenture as supplemented by an Indenture Supplement thereto (as defined below), the administrative agent for such noteholders and certain of their affiliates (the “Performance Guaranty”). The Performance Guaranty, as further described below, was entered into and delivered by the Company in connection with the formation of HyreDrive, LLC (“HyreDrive”), which is a joint venture between the Company and AmeriDrive Holdings, Inc. (“AmeriDrive”) and established for the primary purpose of expanding the parties’ strategic relationship intended to create a larger national network of vehicle supply for the Company’s technology platform. The Company holds a 1% membership interest in HyreDrive, and AmeriDrive holds a 99% membership interest therein. HyreDrive is a special purpose entity, and, pursuant to generally accepted accounting principles, its assets, liabilities and results of operations will not be consolidated with those of the Company. HyreDrive has established a bankruptcy remote, wholly owned subsidiary of HyreDrive (the “HyreDrive SPV”) and a titling trust to facilitate the acquisition and financing of vehicles.
HyreDrive SPV may from time to time issue series of secured asset-backed notes pursuant to the terms of a base indenture (the “Base Indenture”) between it and Wilmington Trust, National Association, as trustee and securities intermediary. Proceeds from any asset-backed notes issued will be used to fund all or part of the purchase price of vehicles allocated to a special unit of beneficial interest in a titling trust or to finance the purchase of new vehicles from third parties that will be similarly allocated to such special unit of beneficial interest. The Base Indenture, together with a Series 2022-1 Supplement to the Base Indenture (the “Indenture Supplement” and, together with the Base Indenture, the “Indenture”), sets forth the terms for the issuance of asset-backed notes under the Indenture. The Company, solely in its capacity as a performance guarantor (as further described below), is a party to the Indenture Supplement for the limited purpose of confirming certain representations, warranties and covenants set forth in the Indenture Supplement related to the issuance of asset-backed notes and the collateral securing the obligations under such notes.
Pursuant to the Performance Guaranty, the Company will guaranty the performance by AmeriDrive and HyreDrive in certain of their capacities, and for the limited reasons set forth under various documents and obligations identified in the Base Indenture. The Performance Guaranty includes the obligation to direct payment of collections in accordance with the terms of the applicable documents, however, the Performance Guaranty is not a guaranty by the Company of the asset-backed notes of the HyreDrive SPV or of any payment obligations of HyreDrive under that certain Master Motor Vehicle Operating Lease and Servicing Agreement, dated as of September 2, 2022, by and among HyreDrive Titling Trust as Lessor, the HyreDrive SPV, as Issuer, HyreDrive, as Lessee, and AmeriDrive, as Servicer (each as defined therein). The terms of the Performance Guaranty expressly provide there is no recourse to the Company for any non-payment or delay in payment of any payment obligations of the HyreDrive SPV by reason of the bankruptcy, insolvency or lack of creditworthiness or other financial or credit condition or financial default or inability to pay by the HyreDrive SPV or the un-collectability of any such payment obligations.
