“We are pleased with the progress that we are making in realizing what we believe is the true book value of the Company,” stated David Delaney, Parkit’s Executive Chairman. “Through further selective asset monetization, we believe that we will realize unencumbered cash within our company that is substantially in excess of the current share price. Simultaneously, we are exploring options for acquisitions that will have a positive impact on both a book value per share basis and a free cash flow per share basis.”

Certain statements contained in this news release constitute forward-looking information under applicable securities law.

Such statements are not guarantees of future performance and actual results or developments may differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, this forward-looking information.

The information contained herein is stated as of the current date and subject to change after that date and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws. .
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This release contains a non-GAAP financial measure. The definition and calculation of this non-GAAP financial measure may differ from the definitions and methodologies used by other companies and, accordingly, may not be comparable. The non-GAAP financial measure referred to below should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance. In addition, this non-GAAP financial measure does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and therefore should not be considered as an alternative measure of liquidity or as indicative of cash available to fund cash needs.
Levered Internal Rate of Return (“IRR”) is calculated as the internal rate of return on the Joint Venture’s equity investment in the property considering the timing and amounts of capital contributions paid, and all distributions received. Management believes that the levered IRR achieved during the period a property is owned by the Joint Venture is useful because it is one indication of the gross value created by the Joint Venture’s acquisition, management and ultimate sale of a property, before the impact of Joint Venture’s overhead and taxes. However, leveraged IRR is not a substitute for net income as a measure of our performance.
The levered IRR achieved on the property as cited in this release should not be viewed as an indication of the gross value created with respect to other properties owned by the Joint Venture, and the Company does not represent that the Joint Venture will achieve similar levered IRRs upon the disposition of other properties. The levered IRR cited in this press release is from the perspective of the Joint Venture, in which the Company has an economic interest.
Under GAAP, the Company recognizes its investment in the Joint Venture using the equity method whereby the carrying value of the investment is adjusted for the Company’s share of the profit and loss of the Joint Venture, and decreased for any distributions received by the Joint Venture. All amounts reported by the Company from the Joint Venture are translated into Canadian dollars. The gain on the disposition of the property will have an impact on the amount reported by the Company for its share of the GAAP net profit from the Joint Venture.
