Zoned Properties Inc. (ZDPY) Releases Positive FY2024 Annual Results Amid U.S. Cannabis Industry Boom

  • There are more cannabis dispensaries than McDonald’s outlets in the United States today, a reflection of the ongoing shift in consumer trends and legal frameworks across America
  • Over 74% of Americans now live in a state which permits either, the medical or recreational consumption of marijuana
  • Zoned Properties has emerged as an early leader in facilitating the transition of U.S. cannabis businesses towards developing a physical retail footprint with a portfolio of cannabis-focused investment properties across Arizona, Michigan and Illinois
  • The company recently updated the market with the release of a positive set of FY 2023 annual results

In 2019, McDonald’s launched a nationwide marketing campaign across the nation entitled, ‘Around the world is now around the corner’ (https://ibn.fm/WRMCM). Celebrating the fact that some of the chain’s most popular global offerings were now easily found in everyone’s local participating McDonald’s, the campaign hinged on the seemingly ubiquitous availability and presence of the restaurant’s outlets across the United States. Remarkably and in representation of America’s rapidly changing attitude towards cannabis today, the number of cannabis dispensaries dotted across the United States have now surpassed those of McDonald’s Corp restaurants, a reflection of the United States’ dramatic and ongoing evolution in consumer trends and legal frameworks.

A recent study by the Pew Research Center have revealed that over half of Americans now live in areas permitting recreational cannabis use, a statistic made even more noteworthy as it comes only twelve years after Colorado and Washington led a landmark decision towards legalizing marijuana usage. Meanwhile, 74 percent of Americans reside in states where marijuana use, whether for recreational or medical purposes, is now legal – a shift which has driven to the establishment of nearly 15,000 cannabis dispensaries nationwide (https://ibn.fm/oZTmI).

“It’s all about location and good capitalization” explained Joe Lustberg, managing partner at Upwise Capital, which has been amongst the pioneers in financing the United States’ burgeoning cannabis industry. Retail has rapidly emerged as an essential sales vertical within the cannabis ecosystem, with cultivators and processors alike seeking viable outlets for their products.

Zoned Properties (OTCQB: ZDPY), a technology-driven property investment company focused on acquiring value-add real estate within the regulated cannabis industry in the United States, has been amongst the early leaders in facilitating the transition of the cannabis industry towards the physical retail space. The company maintains a portfolio of six investment properties located across Arizona, Michigan and Illinois; with each of its leased properties occupied by commercial cannabis-linked businesses, the company currently enjoys a 100% occupancy rate with a weighted average lease term of over 10 years. In addition to maintaining four properties leased and repurposed as regulated cannabis retail dispensaries, the company presently leases two properties which are operated as regulated cannabis cultivation and processing facilities.

Zoned Properties recently updated the market following the release of their annual financial results for 2023 (https://ibn.fm/vrcdq). The company revealed that top-line revenues had grown to $2.89 million in FY2023, representing an increase of 8.5 percent relative to the previous year. Meanwhile, operating expenses had marginally declined to $2.72 million compared to $2.77 million in FY2022, a year-over-year decrease of 1.9%. Zoned Properties also announced that its net losses had narrowed to $540,248 for the 2023 fiscal year, down from $574,355 the prior year.

Additionally, the company revealed that its operational results had enjoyed a marked acceleration in the latter half of the year, with fourth quarter 2023 revenues rising by 16.2 percent year over year with quarterly losses decreasing by -10.4 percent relative to the fourth quarter of 2022.

“As we reflect on our Full Year 2023 results and our recent strategic updates, it’s clear that Zoned Properties is firmly on a trajectory of sustainable growth and value creation,” said Bryan McLaren, Chief Executive Officer of Zoned Properties.

Furthermore, McLaren elaborated on the company’s decision to list its cultivation property located in Arizona’s Chino Valley for sale at a purchase price of $16 million; the proposed sale forms part of Zoned Properties’ ongoing move towards refocusing its efforts towards its core direct-to-consumer property assets, a shift which has seen the company recently acquire a further two investment properties for use as potential dispensary sites.

“The listing of our Chino Valley property is an important step unlocking the potential opportunity to raise significant non-dilutive capital and reflects our commitment to seizing market opportunities with a dedication to enhancing shareholder value,” he continued. “Our journey is guided by a clear vision: to utilize our property technology competitive advantages to drive scale and innovate within our industry, delivering tangible, long-term value to our shareholders. We’re excited about what the future holds and remain dedicated to our strategic growth path, and operational excellence as we move forward.”
