This potential transaction marks a significant development in the Company's strategic real estate portfolio optimization. The Chino Valley Property has been a valuable non-core asset within the Company's portfolio and this potential sale is part of a strategic shift to streamline the Company's portfolio and concentrate efforts on a direct-to-consumer real estate strategy.

Financial Highlights for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2024:

  • Revenues were $837,052 for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, compared to revenues of $688,024 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, representing an increase of 22%.
  • The Company reported net income of $96,473, or $0.01 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2024, as compared to a net loss of $309,648, or ($0.03) per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, representing a 131% increase.

Management Commentary:

"Our team continues to execute despite a difficult operating climate in the cannabis industry, achieving very impressive financial and operational results. The transition to a direct-to-consumer property investment model was demonstrated by our first quarter results, which saw a revenue increase of 22%, positive net income, and significant operating cash flow growth, evidencing what we believe is Zoned Properties' firm trajectory of value generation and sustainable growth. In light of the discrepancy between our tangible book value and market capitalization, and our confidence in future growth, we are pleased to have initiated a share repurchase program to enhance shareholder value. Our capital allocation strategy will always be methodical and adaptable, and we think this is a great way to return capital to shareholders while progressing through our acquisition pipeline. A crucial element of our focused attention on direct-to-consumer real estate is the announcements related to our recent and upcoming acquisitions of significant dispensary assets with top-tier cannabis operators and the strategic listing of our non-core Chino Valley cultivation property for $16 million. This opens up the possibility of raising a sizable amount of non-dilutive capital, which would accelerate our growth initiatives significantly. Looking at the remainder of 2024, we are committed to our strategic growth path, with the expectation of continuing to post strong financial and operating results," said Bryan McLaren, Chief Executive Officer of Zoned Properties.
