Second Quarter 2021 & Six Months Ended June 30, 2021 Company Highlights
Zoned Properties made meaningful progress recruiting for the expansion of the Company’s leadership team during the first two quarters of 2021, subsequently appointing Berekk Blackwell as Chief Operating Officer, Patrick Moroney as Director of Real Estate, and Joseph Lewis as Designated Broker. Under the leadership of Bryan McLaren, Chief Executive Officer, the expanding leadership team is expected to continue to grow the Company’s core real estate service verticals: Advisory Services, Brokerage Services, Franchise Services, and PropTech Services.
- Zoned Properties Advisory Services: The Company’s team of national advisors that specialize in emerging and regulated industries, including regulated cannabis, have continued to increase the number and frequency of client engagements for project services with plans to add 3 to 5 new team members by year-end 2021.
- Zoned Properties Brokerage Services: The Company completed the transition of its licensed commercial real estate brokerage team into a wholly-owned, in-house brokerage. The transition and creation of the Zoned Properties Brokerage Services division will allow the team to better serve clients, and also recognize commission-based revenue as top-line revenue for Zoned Properties.
- Zoned Properties Franchise Services: Zoned Properties completed an additional $100,000 strategic investment into national cannabis retail franchisor, Open Dør Dispensaries, increasing its investment to a total of $200,000 as a convertible debenture. Zoned Properties will benefit both directly and indirectly from this investment as the Company will receive a percentage of initial franchise fees and renewal fees, and may also convert its investment for up to a 33% equity stake in the franchisor organization. Zoned Properties anticipates playing a significant role in real estate operations as the franchisor’s real estate partner.
- Zoned Properties PropTech Services: Zoned Properties completed strategic investments into, and finalized partnerships with, two separate Property Technology (“PropTech”) data and software service platforms. The first investment and partnership, with Zoneomics Corporation, intends to pioneer a GIS zoning and mapping platform to assist with property identification in emerging and highly regulated industries, such as regulated cannabis. The second investment and partnership, with Beakon, LLC, intends to leverage an existing consumer marketing application to drive foot-traffic to brick and mortar retail locations in the regulated cannabis industry.
- Zoned Properties Property Portfolio: The Company leveraged its property portfolio to receive a commitment of at least $8 million from its significant tenants, to be applied toward facility infrastructure expansion at its properties located in Chino Valley, Arizona and Tempe, Arizona. The Company’s significant tenants have completed improvements totaling in excess of $8 million and have satisfied the associated contractual obligation. As soon as the improved, rentable areas have received required approvals for occupancy and commencement of operations, the Company and its significant tenants expect to complete the appropriate amendments to the Lease Agreements, recognizing the appropriate increases to rentable square footage and increases to base rental rates.
- Zoned Properties Property Portfolio: The Company completed the sale of its Gilbert, Arizona property, a non-core asset, for net proceeds of $322,332, providing for a gain of $51,944.

In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “potential,” “continue” or similar expressions. Such forward-looking statements include risks and uncertainties, and there are important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These factors, risks and uncertainties are discussed in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Investors should not place any undue reliance on forward-looking statements since they involve known and unknown, uncertainties and other factors which are, in some cases, beyond the Company’s control which could, and likely will, materially affect actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. Any forward-looking statement reflects the Company’s current views with respect to future events and is subject to these and other risks, uncertainties and assumptions relating to operations, results of operations, growth strategy and liquidity. The Company assumes no obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements for any reason, or to update the reasons actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements, even if new information becomes available in the future.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic and recommended containment and mitigation measures worldwide. We are monitoring this closely, and although operations have not been materially affected by the COVID-19 outbreak to date, the ultimate duration and severity of the outbreak and its impact on the economic environment and our business is uncertain. Currently, all of the properties in our portfolio are open to our Significant Tenants and their customers and will remain open pursuant to state and local government requirements. We did not experience in 2020, and to date have not experienced in 2021, any material changes to our operations from COVID-19. We do not anticipate any such material changes for the remainder of 2021. Our tenants are continuing to generate revenue at these properties and they have continued to make rental payments in full and on time and we believe the tenants’ liquidity position is sufficient to cover its expected rental obligations. Accordingly, while we do not anticipate an impact on our operations, we cannot estimate the duration of the pandemic and potential impact on our business if the properties must close or if the tenants are otherwise unable or unwilling to make rental payments. In addition, a severe or prolonged economic downturn could result in a variety of risks to our business, including weakened demand for our properties and a decreased ability to raise additional capital when needed on acceptable terms, if at all. At this time, the Company is unable to estimate the impact of this event on its operations.
