Valley Center, CA, February 23, 2016 – Concierge Technologies, Inc. (Concierge) today announced the first filing of quarterly financial statements that include recently acquired Wainwright Holdings, Inc. (Wainwright). Concierge consolidated revenues for the quarter topped $8.5 million with operating profit of approximately $1.6 million representing a solid operating performance and a strong balance sheet with $7.0 million in cash.
Concierge now operates on an international scale with wholly owned subsidiaries located in New Zealand, Canada and the U.S. The Company is active in food manufacturing and distribution, home and residential security systems and monitoring, live-streaming mobile video data, and investment fund management. For readers of the quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed February 21, 2017 attention will be drawn to the revenues which, for the six-month period ended December 31, 2016 were approximately $17 million with operating profits near $4 million. Long term shareholders will readily recognize the increase from previous periods where reports did not include Wainwright. With the acquisition of Wainwright on December 9, 2016, where Wainwright and Concierge have a commonality of ownership and control as represented by the shareholdings, the acquisition has been recorded as a transaction between entities under common control on the balance sheets of Concierge. Further, the income statements have been adjusted to include the carrying value of operations of Wainwright as if the transaction had concluded on July 1, 2015.
Wainwright is the holding company for United States Commodity Funds LLC and USCF Advisers LLC (USCF). USCF is a registered commodity pool operator that is the general partner for flagship funds, (NYSE:USO) United States Oil Fund, LP, (NYSE:UNG) United States Natural Gas Fund, LP and (NYSE:USCI) United States Commodity Index Fund. The funds under management during the most recent quarter totaled approximately $5 billion. Wainwright earns revenues from contractual agreements providing for investment management and advisory services charged against these funds.

David Neibert, Chief Financial Officer of Concierge, explains; “Our company looks much different than it did a few short years ago, when we were struggling to make a profit with 5 employees and some dash cams. Today we have operations in three different countries with staff numbering near one hundred. Our annual revenues have climbed from just over $2 million to an expected $30 million for this fiscal year. With significant cash in the bank, no convertible debt instruments, and significant profits coming from our subsidiaries, we are in a continuing growth mode. The new focus of the Company is “Growing Together” as we strive to acquire additional profitable companies and integrate them into the Concierge family. The mantra among our management team and our subsidiaries is to work together bringing growth and profits which, in turn, provide the returns on investment expected by our shareholders. For our long-term patient shareholders who have endured the ups and downs the past few years I wish to thank them for their loyalty and assure them we have finally put in motion the strategy and the funding to realize our goals.”
