Vancouver, British Columbia, February 11, 2019 -- Parkit Enterprise Inc. (“Parkit” or the “Company”) (TSXV: PKT; OTCQX: PKTEF) is pleased to announce that it has received a payment of CAD $561,569 (USD $423,506) from OP Holdings JV, LLC (the “Joint Venture”). This payment resulted from the release of an environmental trust that was established for the sale of Expresso Airport Parking (the “Property”). The Property was sold in October 2018 and the Department of Toxic Substances Control (California, U.S.A) released the environmental trust after the purchaser of the Property established its own environmental trust for the Property. This payment will add cash of approximately CAD $0.016 per share to Parkit's treasury.
“We believe that this payment represents the first of many distributions that Parkit will receive from the Joint Venture. As set out in the Company's press release dated October 19, 2018, the Joint Venture reached its 15% internal rate of return ("IRR") target owed to the Managing Member of the Joint Venture. As a result, all future cash flows from sales and refinances within the Joint Venture will flow to Parking Acquisition Ventures, LLC ("PAVe"), an entity in which Parkit has an 82.83% interest until PAVe has received a 15% IRR. From that point, additional capital proceeds from asset sales and refinances will flow through the Joint Venture’s waterfall with further benefit to Parkit,” stated David Delaney, Parkit’s Executive Chairman. “Our Joint Venture is making significant progress in realizing the value of its assets and we look forward to continuing this asset monetization. Parkit would like to thank our Joint Venture partners for their dedication and effort in continuing to realize the value in our collective assets.”
