LOS ANGELES, June 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BLVD Centers Corporation (“BLVD” or the “Company”) (CSE:BLVD), today posted its financial statements for the year ended February 28, 2018.
- Revenue increased to $31,201,000
- Real estate assets (listed as PP&E) increased from $4,775,000 to $7,648,000
- Bad Debt decreased from $8,313,000 to $2,100,000
- Net loss decreased from $29,524,000 in fiscal 2017 to $1,782,000 in fiscal 2018

“We are pleased to post these audited statements,” said CEO Chris Heath. “We have a very stable business with significant revenue and a strong balance sheet. These statements highlight the nature of our opportunity to be a platform company with which to launch into the marijuana industry. With solid eight figure revenues and a strong balance sheet, as well as several locations on the west coast and a deep database with thousands of patients in need of addiction services and products, we are very well placed to take advantage of the market”.
“We have focused all of our efforts since the end of the third fiscal quarter to reorganize our business to that end”, continued Mr. Heath. “We have paired revenue lines that were low margin and had little value to a marijuana strategy. We have invested in several real estate properties that have unique licensing. We have also taken a closer look at our accounts receivable and bed debt figures, and considering our strategy, have decided to take a very conservative approach to these balances, reducing bad debt expense from over eight million to just over two million. My energy has focused almost entirely on getting to a transaction or series of transactions in the marijuana industry, either where we are acquired or we acquire operations, expertise and leadership, that can lever our platform and result in a more valuable company. On an industry level, we are tracking several studies that are investigating whether certain strains of marijuana show promise in reduction of cravings for opioids. With each passing month, there are more and more synergies that appear using our current operations to expand into the marijuana industry.”
Completion of any transaction would be subject to applicable conditions and approvals. There can be no assurance that a transaction will be agreed to or completed.
