“Following the recent acquisition of our investment property in Michigan producing a straight-line effective cap rate of 13.5%, Zoned Properties has reached a significant inflection point in our business. We are confident that we can continue to actively invest capital in a manner that is both diligent and accretive in 2023 so that we can start scaling our one-of-a-kind commercial real estate investment model,” said Bryan McLaren, Chief Executive Officer of Zoned Properties. “The Company is constantly expanding its acquisition pipeline, and our team continues to cultivate national relationships to provide access to healthy capital, both of which will continue to fuel expansion aspirations. We believe that the aim and value proposition of Zoned Properties has never been stronger than it is today, with the Company delivering commercial real estate solutions to stakeholders in the regulated cannabis market. We are offering cannabis business owners and entrepreneurs an opportunity to discover an entry-point into the market for legal cannabis. During 2022, we were successful in expanding our executive management team and onboarding a highly skilled group of professionals to bolster our national expansion plans.”
“We believe that Zoned Properties is well positioned for strong growth and scalability as a result of the consistent, passive revenue that we derive from our property investment portfolio, as well as the clear roadmap that will allow us to expand into state-cannabis markets around the country. These opportunities for expansion are a direct result of our team’s participation in hundreds of regulated projects across the nation. We were able to provide value for these projects because we have established a real estate ecosystem that provides a comprehensive selection of commercial real estate services. We would like to thank all of our shareholders, stakeholders, customers, and partners for putting their faith in Zoned Properties, and we will continue to work hard every day to create value.”
- Zoned Properties has established a national network for its Commercial Real Estate Services, opening Zoned Properties Brokerage offices in Arizona, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and Missouri; and engaging advisory clients to provide cannabis real estate solutions across dozens of state cannabis markets.
- In January 2022, Zoned Properties and its tenant at the Company’s Chino Valley facility completed a Fourth Amendment to its Lease Agreement, whereby the operational square footage of the property increased to 97,312 square feet and the base rent under the lease increased to $87,581 monthly or $1.05 million annually; representing a 167% increase to the annual base rent at the property. The Chino Valley tenant completed over $8.0 million in capital improvements at the property. Any additional expansion to the operational square footage at the 47 acre property will increase rent at a rate of $0.90 per square foot annually.
- In November 2022, Zoned Properties finalized a deal at its Tempe, Arizona facility to transfer operational control and tenancy to a subsidiary of Green Dot Labs, bringing a strong, diversified tenant into its portfolio. As consideration for approving the transaction, Zoned Properties received a one-time cash payment of $300,000 and a commitment from the tenant to invest no less than $3.0 million in capital improvements at the property.
- In December 2022, the Company secured a competitive debt facility for $4.5 million at a fixed interest rate of 7.65% over a 10-year loan term.

- In March 2023, Zoned Properties announced the completion of its acquisition of an investment property in Pleasant Ridge, Michigan that has been permitted to be a cannabis retail dispensary. The investment property was acquired for $4.30 million, including $1.85 million in seller financing, which allowed Zoned Properties to further leverage its capital stack at attractive rates.
- The investment property is leased to NOXX Cannabis under a long-term, absolute-net lease agreement, which will produce a 13.5% cap rate when straight-lined over the term of the lease agreement. The lease includes 3% annual increases in base rent over the life of the lease term, yielding approximately $580,000 in annual base rental revenue when straight-lined over the life of the lease term.
