Fire & Flower Brings Cannabis Delivery to High-Rise Residential and Hotel Platforms through Exclusive Agreement with Zonetail Zonetail provides access to a rapidly expanding market of over 110,000 households to Fire & Flower and the Pineapple Express delivery platform

TORONTO, May 10, 2022 – Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (“Fire & Flower” or the “Company”) (TSX: FAF) (OTCQX: FFLWF), a leading cannabis consumer retail and technology platform announced today that its wholly-owned delivery and logistics subsidiary, Pineapple Express Delivery Inc. (“Pineapple Express”) has entered into an agreement with Zonetail Inc. (“Zonetail”) (TSXV: ZONE) (OCTQB: ZTLLF) to provide cannabis delivery services to users of the Zonetail residential platforms.

Zonetail’s high-rise residential platforms connect residents of condos and apartments to the amenities and services of their building through the convenience of their personal mobile device. Using Zonetail’s platform, residents can access the building’s community news and activity feeds, community calendar, document libraries, book building amenities, such as visitor parking or the elevator, create and track maintenance requests, and access links to pay their rent or monthly maintenance dues. It digitizes the communications between property management and the residents.

Included on the Zonetail platform is a marketplace, highlighting the businesses and services that residents are in need of. Through Zonetail’s unique age-gated section, Fire & Flower cannabis stores will now be the exclusive provider of cannabis to users of the platform and deliveries will be fulfilled through Pineapple Express to households across Canada and in the U.S. where it is legal to do so.

As the hotel industry continues to rebound from the effects of COVID, Zonetail’s expected relaunch of its hotel and travel platform is also planned to include Fire and Flower and Pineapple Express to provide cannabis delivery directly to hotel guests.

“Building our base of monthly active users is core to advancing our vision of Deliver Cannabis to the World. The Zonetail agreement is an innovative way to access cannabis consumers in major urban centers and those that are travelling to jurisdictions where legal recreational cannabis is available,” shared Trevor Fencott, Chief Executive Officer of Fire & Flower. “We look forward to building this partnership and focused growth on digitally-engaged consumers.”

“Pineapple Express is the leader in cannabis delivery and we are excited to offer cannabis delivery to the highly engaged users of our platform,” shared Mark Holmes, Chief Executive Officer of Zonetail. “Working with Fire & Flower and Pineapple Express was a natural choice for Zonetail, given the scale of their retail distribution network and ability to rapidly deliver cannabis directly to consumers doors.”

Deliveries will begin in the Greater Toronto Area in the coming weeks and users of the Zonetail platform will be notified of the availability of the delivery service at the Company’s earliest opportunity.

Zonetail Launches with Another Prominent Canadian-Based PMC, Representing ~22,000 Doors and an Estimated 20,000 Existing Users

Toronto, Canada - April 19, 2022 - Zonetail Inc. (TSXV:ZONE, OTCQB:ZTLLF) (“Zonetail” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has launched with its newest client, a prominent Property Management Company (PMC) in Canada, representing approximately 22,000 doors.

 

The Company’s newest PMC client, (who requested not to be named in this release) utilizes Yardi’s RENTCafe mobile platform across their full portfolio of buildings. Zonetail is excited to announce that its unique ‘Explore’ Marketplace plug-in, which was built specifically for this purpose and announced in the press release dated November 15, 2021, was successfully embedded into their RENTCafe platform that has an estimated 20,000 current and active users. This existing userbase provides an instant market for Zonetail’s transactional and paid advertising clients, allowing immediate tenant access to all of the local and national content that the full ‘Zonetail Home’ platform offers. The next time a tenant opens their PMC RENTCafe app, the Zonetail marketplace will be there, right on the landing page.

 

The Company reports that the phased rollout with its latest client has begun with the launch of their buildings in the Cambridge, Kitchener and Guelph region of Ontario, an area where Zonetail already has extensive coverage. It is expected that the next phase will include the remainder of their buildings in Ontario, including the Greater Toronto Area, followed by their buildings in Western Canada.

 

“This is the kind of explosive growth we expect, as more and more PMCs across North America recognize the value of the Company’s software. Whether a PMC wants the full Zonetail Home platform, or the Zonetail Explore plug-in, we have the solution for them.” said Mark Holmes, CEO of Zonetail. Holmes continued, “The exciting thing that we are realizing is the growth comes in chunks - thousands of new units and thousands of new users with each signing. This is why the timing was right for the Company to introduce the latest evolution of the business model, The Zonetail Marketplace.” Further details on the Zonetail Marketplace can be found in the Company’s last Corporate Update, dated April 11, 2022.

 

This latest signing increases Zonetail’s high-rise residential property portfolio by over 20%, bringing the new unit total to approximately 130,000 households. Once fully rolled out, it will also increase the Zonetail Canadian userbase base by 100%. The Company adds that it is a substantial addition to its market penetration in Ontario and Western Canada.

Zonetail is Pleased to Announce the Launch of its Multifamily Residential Platform in Eight U.S. Cities

Toronto, Canada, April 13, 2022 (TSXV:ZONE, OTCQB:ZTLLF) — Zonetail Inc. (“Zonetail” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has officially launched its residential platform in multifamily apartment buildings in eight U.S. cities across Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia, in partnership with Link Apartments® .

 

Link Apartments® utilizes Yardi’s premium RentCafé Mobile app platform. The successful integration of the RentCafé Mobile app and Zonetail provides Link Apartments® residents with instant access to the ‘Explore’ marketplace. Zonetail’s unique ‘Explore’ marketplace plug-in, which was built specifically for this purpose, and announced in the press release dated November 15, 2021, was successfully inserted into the existing Yardi RENTCafe Mobile App, providing all of the local and national content and features that the full ‘Zonetail Home’ platform offers. The next time a Link Apartments® resident opens the app, the Zonetail ‘Explore’ marketplace will be there, right on the landing page.

 

This exciting development also triggers the launch of one of America’s largest telecom companies on the Zonetail platform, (press released on December 15, 2021), as well as several other businesses in the U.S. that Zonetail has signed in recent months.

 

As the Zonetail marketplace continues to develop, Link Apartments® residents will enjoy a wide range of unique offerings from local businesses in their surrounding area, such as restaurants, shopping, grocery, food delivery, entertainment and more. In addition, they will now have access to national, big brand corporations that have joined Zonetail’s marketplace.

 

“We’re very pleased to launch the Zonetail marketplace across our Link Apartments® portfolio,” said Shawn Cardner, Executive Vice President, Grubb Properties. Mr. Cardner went on to say, “Zonetail’s software was simple to implement, and it provides numerous benefits to our residents and our property management team, including the ability to engage residents and further connect them to their community.”

 

In the coming days, Zonetail anticipates ‘switching on’ the fully integrated Thumbtack feature, providing Link Apartments® residents access to a wide range of home and personal services via the Thumbtack agreement that Zonetail announced on November 8, 2021. Readers, please refer to Zonetail’s Corporate Update press release, dated April 11, 2022, and the Company’s new Corporate Presentation for further details surrounding Thumbtack.

 

“This is another major milestone for the Company,” said Mark Holmes, President and CEO of Zonetail. “In fact, it’s several milestones wrapped up in one, as it also represents the launch of all of the recent partnerships we’ve built in the U.S. over the past few months. We fully anticipate this will lead to more signings with several other big brand companies that we’ve been in recent discussions with.” Mr. Holmes continued, “Working with Shawn and his team has been fantastic. They’re a wonderful group of people and very supportive of the Company. They also fully understand the role that technology must play in the future of property management, and we’re excited to continue developing our relationship to provide additional solutions that we are working towards.”

 

Mr. Cardner added, “Grubb Properties’ goal is to expand our Link Apartments® portfolio of apartment units to 28,000 by 2028, and that expansion requires the implementation of new and innovative technology. We look forward to growing our relationship with Zonetail, to explore the development of the tools that our residents and management teams require.”

 

Zonetail reports that they have been in discussions with Link Apartments® to consider additional opportunities on how the two companies can work together to enhance the offering by integrating smart building technology and payment processing.

Zonetail provides Corporate and Strategy Update

Toronto, Ontario– April 11, 2022 – Zonetail Inc. (TSXV: ZONE, OTCQB: ZTLLF) (“Zonetail” or the “Company”), an emerging company that is focused on transforming the way high-rise residents manage their homes by connecting people to products, amenities and services through a powerful mobile platform, is pleased to update its shareholders on its comprehensive new strategy, blueprint and playbook as first disclosed in our press release of January 18, 2022.

 

“We started 2022 with key service provider partnerships and positioned in high potential properties that will drive growth in user engagement and revenue,” stated Mark Holmes, CEO of Zonetail. “Looking into the rest of the year, we have the team in place and a focused strategy to increase the penetration of the resident groups on the platform and grow our base of connected properties.”

 

The mobile high-rise platform is the key to Zonetail’s distinct market and channel advantage.

The Zonetail platform is addressing the needs of the large and growing population of residents of multi-family residential buildings, planned communities, condominium communities, and housing cooperatives. Increasing population growth and urban densification continue to grow this segment which in 2020 was estimated to be 26% of all U.S. residents[1]. This mobile and technology-savvy audience have proven to be active adopters of the Zonetail app as all key indicators, property management companies signing on, downloads and monthly active users, all continue to increase at a steady pace.

 

The Zonetail user base, and immediate addressable market also proves to be an attractive audience for businesses participating on the platform who wish to connect with this large, lucrative, and growing market of high-rise residents.

 

Currently, Zonetail is live in over 100,000 households, and is in the process of launching an additional 30,000 more units from recent signings. Adding to that, and as a direct result of the early success of the Yardi rollout, the Company is in various stages of negotiations with dozens more property management companies across Canada and the U.S. representing a whopping 500,000 units, and the sales funnel continues to grow.

 

Advertiser and marketplace network

“Zonetail is perfectly positioned to be a dynamic Market Network and we are thrilled to go on this development journey with them. To that end, we have onboarded NATIONAL - Canada’s leading PR firm, and full-service advertising agency, with 300 professionals based in nine offices from coast to coast - to usher in this new era for the Company and its customers. The addressable market for this evolution is massive,” says Michael Chase of Global Edge Investments. “The underserved high-rise residential marketplace is ripe for development and Zonetail’s Market Network provides a platform that connects people, products, services, and amenities – a nirvana for all high-rise dwellers.”

Market Networks combine elements of network platforms with marketplaces and are producing a new class of unicorn companies, impacting how millions of service professionals will work and earn their living. Market networks are also unique from a monetization standpoint. They combine the strong network effects, defensibility and scalability of direct networks (social media) together with the lucrative revenue models of SaaS or marketplace businesses. Further details of Zonetail’s new strategy and the exciting evolution of its business plan can be found by downloading our new Corporate Presentation, here: https://www.zonetail.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Zonetail-Corporate-Deck-2022-02-28.pdf.

 

The right team

As Zonetail is executing its new strategy, it has and continues to build a team with experience in technology, multi-residential real estate, and hospitality. Over 2022, the Company expects this team to be key to growing the Zonetail footprint with residents, service providers, and property management companies.

 

On March 14, 2022, Zonetail announced the hiring of Brian Davies as its Executive Vice-President Sales and Strategic Partnerships. In addition to Brian, the Company has also recently made two additional hires to assist with the workload associated with the Yardi rollout, of what is expected to be thousands of new buildings across the continent.

 

The tech side

On the technology side, the Company is pleased to announce that it has completed the integration with Thumbtack to provide thousands of home services with hundreds of thousands of service providers across the United States. Residents using the Zonetail platform can now access and book service providers for everything from home cleaning to home renovation and décor, from lawyers to accountants, and piano teachers to dog walkers – you name it. It is expected that this partnership and beautiful integration of Thumbtacks industry leading technology will increase usage of the app, and drive significant revenue for the Company, as Zonetail will receive transaction payments for every single service booked.

 

Two additional integrations are also being explored, the first to include a feed for local area deals into the app across the Canadian market, and the second, at the request of some of our property management partners, as well as several paid marketplace clients, a payment processing feature that has the potential to add an additional revenue stream. More on these developments in future press releases.

 

The Company has also recently forged a relationship with Hott Solutions, billed as “Your Real Estate Technology Experts” and based out of Los Angeles, to launch a property management integration help desk to assist in onboarding. Hott is also working on integration opportunities with other property management software companies beyond Yardi and Shiftsuite, which is expected to further increase our already large serviceable market.

 

Key partnerships in place

To amplify growth in its target markets, Zonetail has forged several key partnerships, and is in the process of forging several more. A few are highlighted below:

 

 

 

 

Building a Sustainable Moat

  • Shiftsuite: one of Canada’s largest property management software providers to the condo industry, with approximately 2,000 condo buildings representing an estimated 400,000 units.
  • Yardi: the largest property management software company in North America. The Yardi partnership allows Zonetail direct access to tens of millions of high-rise households, providing immediate scale, and enabling the launch of the Zonetail marketplace.

 

The Marketplace

  • Leading telecommunications providers: strategic partnerships with two leading telecom providers in Canada and the US enabling them to communicate directly to high-rise residents, offering a wide range of residential services, including cable tv bundles, internet and home phone.
  • Thumbtack: a modern home management platform that enables residents to book a variety of home services. Thumbtack provides Zonetail with an immediate market network by offering a high-value service option of approximately 5,000 services via one platform.
  • Bellhop: a tech-enabled moving company that Zonetail users can access from the app. It streamlines the cost estimation and booking experience for residents while assigning them to the best moving professionals for the job.
  • Apollo Insurance: a leading online insurance provider that enables Zonetail’s users to get a quote and purchase from the largest selection of online insurance in Canada.
  • Targeting dozens more network partners across the US and Canada in 2022.

 

“The Zonetail platform creates a new revenue stream for property management companies, a unique experience for users and a win-win proposition for residents and the countless businesses and service providers that want to reach them,” added Mr. Holmes. “We are very pleased with our progress and look forward to a strong 2022.”

Holmes continued, “Even with our limitations at the time, Brian signed several key accounts, including foodora, and GrubHub, among others. He is a proven asset and we always wanted to get him back. I’m thrilled to see him rejoin the team.”

 

“I had several opportunities to join other much larger companies in an executive/senior sales role, but when the chance arose to rejoin Zonetail, I had to jump at it,” said Davies. “I’ve always believed in what Mark and the team were building, and their growth over the past three years is truly exciting – I’m very pleased to come back and expect to contribute to the Company’s recent success.”

 

As announced in the Company’s press release on January 18, 2022, Zonetail is now executing the new evolution of its business strategy, blueprint and playbook for the burgeoning and lucrative condo and multi-family rental/apartment markets. For further details, please refer to Zonetail’s updated corporate presentation which is available for downloading at https://www.zonetail.com/investors/.

 

Mr. Davies will play a significant role in the execution of this strategy, as the Company continues its North American expansion, adding new buildings, users and new business partners to its growing marketplace.

 

Zonetail has granted 1,000,000 stock options to Brian Davies at an exercise price of $0.05, as a major component of its compensation, substantially conserving the Company’s cash reserves. The stock options vest over 24 months and expire on March 13, 2027.

Zonetail Responds to Belgravia Hartford’s Litigation Update

Toronto, Ontario, February 4, 2022— Zonetail Inc. (“Zonetail” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ZONE, OTCQB:ZTLLF) responds to Belgravia Hartford Capital Inc. ("Belgravia") (CSE: BLGV)

 

Zonetail’s company policy has been to not respond to matters that are before the Courts through press releases. However, due to the material omissions in Belgravia’s recent press release, the Company felt it was important to provide the following facts:

 

  • It was Zonetail, not Belgravia, that initiated the civil proceedings by way of a claim against Belgravia launched in December 2019 for over $5,000,000.
  • Zonetail’s claim seeks damages from Belgravia for, among other things, alleged abuse of process, malicious prosecution, breach of contract and Zonetail’s resulting loss of reputation and loss of commercial opportunities.
  • Zonetail’s claim arises in part from steps allegedly taken by Belgravia in initiating a bankruptcy application against Zonetail in 2019.
  • The Ontario Superior Court of Justice dismissed Belgravia’s bankruptcy application on consent in August 2020.

 

Zonetail’s position is that Belgravia’s counterclaim is without merit. Zonetail looks forward to having the claims determined by the Court.

Zonetail Engages Global Edge Investments to Run the “Playbook”

Toronto, Canada, January 18, 2022— Zonetail Inc. (“Zonetail” or the “Company”)) (TSXV:ZONE, OTCQB:ZTLLF) announces it has engaged Global Edge Investments Inc. (“GEI”) to assist the Company in executing its comprehensive new strategy, blueprint and playbook for the burgeoning and lucrative condo and multi-family rental/apartment markets.

 

The new blueprint and playbook perfectly positions Zonetail to be a dynamic Market Network. Market Networks combine elements of network platforms with marketplaces and are producing a new class of unicorn companies, impacting how millions of service professionals will work and earn their living. Market networks are also unique from a monetization standpoint. They combine the strong network effects, defensibility and scalability of direct networks (social media) together with the lucrative revenue models of SaaS or marketplace businesses.

 

The execution of this new strategy will address the capital markets, bringing what is anticipated to be substantial value to Zonetail shareholders. It will also provide the necessary development, marketing, and communication tools to assist in the rollout of Zonetail’s Yardi integrated platform - bringing value to Zonetail’s current and expanding userbase, while driving meaningful new recurring services revenue along with the already growing advertising-based revenues.

 

The implementation of the new blueprint and playbook will facilitate Zonetail’s move to become a unique, integrated, mobile condo & multi-family rental/apartment Market Network platform that dynamically engages and builds customer lifetime value for the condo management market - effortlessly delivering coveted recurring information, products and services to condo & multi-family rental/apartment customers at the tap of a screen.

 

Zonetail has granted 3,000,000 stock options to GEI at an exercise price of $0.05, as a major component of its compensation, substantially conserving the Company’s cash reserves. The stock options vest over 12 months and expire on January 17, 2024.

 

“We have worked with Tony Cohen and Michael Chase from GEI for the past seven months, developing an aggressive blueprint and playbook for Zonetail. We are pleased to announce that we have retained their services to assist in the execution of this strategy for 2022,” said Mark Holmes, President and CEO of Zonetail. Holmes went on to say, “For some time now, we have been aware that Zonetail has been riding ‘under-the-wire’ when it comes to the public markets. Generally speaking, ‘The Street’ for the most part, does not know that Zonetail exists. With the execution of this strategy, we expect that to change, and that should excite all our stakeholders.”

 

“Zonetail has superbly leveraged the condo and high-rise marketplace. They have set an incredible stake in the ground and developed a thriving business around local advertising. They have connected with the biggest condo platforms in North America – like Yardi. Growth of this kind is a great opportunity,” said Tony Cohen, CEO of GEI. Tony went on to iterate, “Zonetail is perfectly positioned to be a dynamic Market Network and we are thrilled to go on this development journey with them and are in the process of onboarding a leading North American agency partner to usher in this new era for the Company and its customers. The addressable market for this evolution is massive.”

 

More details surrounding the corporate plan for 2022 will be addressed in upcoming releases.

Zonetail Signs an Agreement with one of the Largest Telecom Companies in the U.S.

Toronto, Canada, December 15, 2021 (TSXV:ZONE, OTCQB:ZTLLF) — Zonetail Inc. (“Zonetail” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has finalized an agreement with one of the largest telecom companies in the United States, and one of the largest companies in the world, to offer its high-rise residential users direct access to exclusive telecom residential services.

‘Zonetail Home’ is a mobile platform designed for high-rise residential buildings, as well as property-managed townhouses and gated communities. The platform connects the residents to the amenities and services of their building through the convenience of their personal mobile device. ‘Zonetail Home’ is fully integrated with Yardi Voyager, the largest property management software company in North America.

 

Using ‘Zonetail Home’, residents can access the building’s community news and activity feeds, community calendar, document libraries, and book building amenities, such as visitor parking or the elevator. In addition, residents can create and track maintenance requests, view their ledger and status certificates (for condos), and access links to pay their rent or monthly maintenance dues. It digitizes the communications between property management and the residents.

 

Included on the ‘Zonetail Home’ platform is an ‘Explore’ section highlighting the businesses and services that residents are in constant need of. These businesses pay Zonetail to be on the platforms to connect with the highly sought, but often difficult to reach, high-rise residents.

 

Through the Zonetail platform, the telecom company will be a featured partner, right on the landing page, and they will have the ability to communicate directly to residents, offering a wide range of home services, including cable tv bundles, internet and home phone.

"This has been one of the key projects that James Jenkins has been spearheading for several months, and we are very excited to finalize this agreement,” said Mark Holmes, CEO and President of Zonetail. Holmes went on to say, "We executed a similar agreement with one of Canada’s leading telecom companies, and based on that experience, it would be hard to overstate the value that an agreement like this brings to the Company. It goes far beyond revenue.”

“I believe that this agreement once again proves the overall Zonetail value proposition,” said James Jenkins, Zonetail’s Executive Vice President of U.S. Markets. “You don’t sign an agreement with one of the world’s largest corporations, never mind simply getting their attention, if you don’t have something very meaningful to offer.”

Zonetail’s new telecom client has initially provided a target building list which includes approximately 1.5 million households. “That’s where we begin,” said Jenkins.
