Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results
During the third quarter of 2023, the Company reported revenue of approximately $6.2 million, up from aproximately $4.1 million in the prior year period, a 51% increase, primarily due to a 49% increase in gallons delivered. Total gallons delivered in the third quarter of 2023 were 1,486,199 compared to 994,447 in the prior year period, reflecting new customers in existing and new markets, as well as expansion of certain existing customers to new markets. Average fuel margin per gallon was $0.57 for the quarter an increase of $0.14 per gallon from the prior year period.
Cost of sales was aproximately $5.8 million for the third quarter of 2023 compared to approximately $4.2 million for the prior year period. The increase from the prior year reflects the increase in sales as well as the hiring of additional drivers, primarily in new markets and the cost of fuel.
Operating expenses, excluding depreciation and amortization, were approximately $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2023, compared to approximately $3.5 million in the prior year period and $2.4 million in the prior quarter. The decrease was primarily due to decreases in payroll, technology expenses, stock compensation and public company expenses as we continue to achieve efficiencies in our operations.
Depreciation and amortization decreased to $0.28 million in the third quarter of 2023 from $0.48 million in the prior year period due to the write-off of intangibles in 2022.
Interest expense increased in the current year due to increased outstanding debt.
The net loss in the third quarter of 2023 was $(2.2) million, compared to $(4.1) million in the prior year period. Loss per share decreased in the quarter down to $(0.58) from $(1.23) in the prior year period.
Adjusted EBITDA loss in the third quarter of 2023 was $(1.2) million as compared to Adjusted EBITDA loss of $(3.3) million in the third quarter of 2022. The improvement in adjusted EBITDA reflects both the improved margin and the operating cost efficiencies.
As previously reported, on April 26, 2023, the Company effected a 1:8 reverse stock split of its common stock. All share and per share amounts have been retroactively restated to reflect the reverse stock split.
With the number of gas stations in the U.S. continuing to decline, corporate giants such as Shell, Exxon, GM, Bridgestone, Enterprise, and Mitsubishi have recognized the increasing shift in consumer behavior and are investing in the fast growing on-demand mobile fueling industry. As the only company to provide fuel delivery in three vertical segments - consumer, commercial, and specialty including marine, we believe EzFill is well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for convenient and cost-efficient mobile fueling options.
EzFill is a leader in the fast-growing mobile fuel industry, with the largest market share in its home state of Florida. Its mission is to disrupt the gas station fueling model by providing consumers and businesses with the convenience, safety, and touch-free benefits of on-demand fueling services brought directly to their locations. For commercial and specialty customers, at-site delivery during downtimes enables operators to begin their daily operations with fully fueled vehicles. For more information, visit www.ezfl.com.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), we use non-GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which we use in our financial performance analyses. This measure should not be considered a substitute for GAAP-basis measures, nor should it be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP. We believe that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of net interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation expense, provides useful supplemental information that is essential to a proper understanding of our financial results. Non-GAAP measures are not formally defined by GAAP, and other entities may use calculation methods that differ from ours for the purposes of calculating Adjusted EBITDA. As a complement to GAAP financial measures, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA assists investors who follow the practice of some investment analysts who adjust GAAP financial measures to exclude items that may obscure underlying performance and distort comparability.
The following is a reconciliation of net loss to the non-GAAP financial measure referred to as Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022
