(OTCQB: "CNCG") today recaps the quarterly financial statements for March 31, 2017 filed earlier this week as an indication of continued strong performance in all subsidiary operations. Consolidated net revenues for the quarter were approximately $7.5M, a gross profit of approximately $6.5M and operating profit of approximately $1.2M after adjustment for depreciation. All operating subsidiaries were profitable with Wainwright Holdings leading the way followed by Gourmet Foods in New Zealand, Brigadier Security Systems in Canada and Kahnalytics in California. Shareholder equity continues to improve with net assets totaling $17.5M over liabilities of $4.3M and stockholders' equity at approximately $13M.

USCF rang the opening bell on the New York Stock Exchange on April 18th to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG). USCF also launched their first mutual fund, the United States Commodity Strategy Fund (USCFX) on March 31st. USCF currently manages approximately $4 billion in assets from its headquarters in Oakland, California.
In Tauranga, New Zealand, Gourmet Foods continues to improve sales through innovative recipes for its meat pie products and by slightly altering the way its products go to market. While the company is known for its fresh products there is a market for frozen products as well. Gourmet Foods is now aggressively exploring that niche with the anticipation that providing a selection of frozen products will allow them to ship further distances and reach areas of the country previously not pursued. In order to prepare for increased production demands and to create more efficiencies in daily operations, Gourmet Foods has purchased and installed a new oven. The new oven not only produces a more consistent and controlled temperature environment it also expands baking capacity by 66%, positioning the company for future sales growth and higher profit margins through efficiency.
In Saskatchewan, Brigadier Security Systems reinvested some profits into acquiring a new fleet of vehicles. With offices in Regina and Saskatoon, Brigadier services the majority of the province and replacement of the aging fleet of service trucks and vans will help them continue uninterrupted. The service vehicles so familiar to Saskatchewan residents will now sport an even more attention-getting look with revitalized graphics and fresh new color schemes. Also announced during the quarterly period, the Regina office of Brigadier Security Systems (Elite Security Systems) was awarded the President's Award from SecurTek as the top selling dealer in Canada based on sales and customer service. Barely edged out was the Saskatoon office who was runner up. Concierge congratulates the entire Brigadier Security Systems team.
David Neibert, Chief Financial Officer of Concierge, commented; "Over the past year we have been focused on acquisitions and all that entails. With talented management teams concentrating on their specific areas we are now realizing gains in these subsidiaries through improved operations and sustainable growth. We couldn't be happier. As Concierge Technologies continues its acquisition strategies by putting our cash reserves to work, I'm confident the effort will be supported by the consistent performance of our operating base of companies. In short, the strategy is working. Our acquisitions are contributing to the consolidated income of Concierge Technologies rather than becoming a drain on resources. In turn, a heightened value is expected to be realized by our shareholders, which has always been our underlying focus."
