CEO Commentary

"Our performance in the first quarter was largely in line with our expectations, with a significant year over year performance improvement as traction began on Vision 2026 in a tough macro environment. As anticipated, the industry dynamics remain challenging; however, our strength as an aligned and experienced team delivered impressive results as we drive our Company turnaround," said Mike Kennedy. RumbleOn's Chief Executive Officer continued, "In the first quarter, we delivered $5.2 million of operating income--a significant improvement from last year's operating loss--and $11.7 million of Adjusted EBITDA, an 8.3% improvement over last year's performance."

Total Unit Sales (New, Pre-owned Retail and Wholesale) of 16,585 units declined 3.7%.

Company Revenue of $307.8 million declined 8.0% on lower unit volume and a $747 lower average selling price, which is driven by mix.

Cautionary Note on Forward-Looking Statements

This press release may contain "forward-looking statements" as that term is defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which statements may be identified by words such as "expects," "projects," "will," "may," "anticipates," "believes," "should," "intends," "estimates," and other words of similar meaning. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which are based on our expectations as of the date of this press release and speak only as of the date of this press release and are advised to consider the factors listed under the heading "Forward-Looking Statements" and "Risk Factors" in the Company's SEC filings, as may be updated and amended from time to time. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As required by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), we provide reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures contained in this press release to the most directly comparable measure under GAAP, which are set forth in the financial tables attached to this release.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Non-Vehicle Net Debt, Non-Vehicle Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures and should not be considered as alternatives to operating income or net income as a measure of operating performance or cash flows or as a measure of liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily calculated the same way by different companies and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to add back interest expense, depreciation and amortization, discontinued operations, non-cash stock-based compensation costs, transaction costs, litigation expenses, and other non-recurring costs, as these recoveries, charges and expenses are not considered a part of our core business operations and are not necessarily an indicator of ongoing, future company performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is one of the primary metrics used by management to evaluate the financial performance of our business. We present adjusted EBITDA because we believe it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. Further, we believe it is helpful in highlighting trends in our operating results, because it excludes, among other things, certain results of decisions that are outside the control of management, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure and capital investments.

We view free cash flow when assessing its sources of liquidity, capital resources and quality of earnings. We believe that free cash flow is helpful in understanding the Company's capital requirements and provides an additional means to reflect the cash flow trends in the Company's business. We define free cash flow as cash flows from operating activities less cash used for investments in property and equipment (excluding acquisitions).

We define Non-Vehicle Net Debt as total principal of long-term debt, including current maturities, less cash and restricted cash. Short-term floor plan debt and the finance lease obligations are not included in this measure. We believe that Non-Vehicle Net Debt is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position. We use Non-Vehicle Net Debt to monitor and compare our financial position from period to period. However, Non-Vehicle Net Debt is not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our financial position in accordance with GAAP.

We define Non-Vehicle Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA as Non-Vehicle Net Debt divided by Adjusted EBITDA for the applicable last twelve-month period. We define Adjusted EBITDA as our net income (loss), excluding the impact of income taxes, depreciation and amortization, net interest expense and certain other non-cash, non-recurring and/or unusual, non-operating items including, but not limited to: non-cash stock compensation expense, impairment of goodwill and franchise rights, personnel restructuring expenses, pre-owned vehicle inventory valuation adjustment, and charges related to proxy contest and reorganization of Board of Directors. We believe that Non-Vehicle Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors as a measure of our financial position. We use this measure to monitor and compare our financial position from period to period. However, Non-Vehicle Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be used as an alternative to any measure of our financial position in accordance with GAAP.
