"Our first quarter financial results reflect significant changes to Zoned Properties' business strategy following a stock redemption that brought 32.3% of our outstanding shares back into the treasury. We believe that this anti-dilutive event, combined with our advisory services platform, has built a foundation for new growth and value for our shareholders," commented Bryan McLaren, Chief Executive Officer of Zoned Properties. "We continue to see positive cash-flow from operations as we shift our attention to engaging new clients and working on new projects, with relatively limited need for any increases in overhead costs."
"We have been active in 2019 exploring and engaging new client projects, and we look forward to sharing that progress in the coming months," added Mr. McLaren. "Our anticipation is that we will be expanding our team throughout the remainder of 2019 as new clients are engaged and new projects lead to increased revenue and cash flows."
