Parkit Announces Q1 2016 Results
VANCOUVER, BC – April 1, 2016 – Parkit Enterprise Inc., (“Parkit,” or “the Company”) [TSX-V:PKT, OTCQX: PKTEF] yesterday reported its financial and operational results for the quarter ended January 31, 2016.
- Profit for the quarter of $148,000
- Cash increased to $1.4 million
- Net asset value increased to $16.6 million
A key component of the Company’s investment strategy has been to improve the yield on investment through operational efficiencies. Since inception of the institutional JV the unlevered return on the assets has improved from 8% to 9.5%. Management believes that the intrinsic value of the Company’s portfolio investment has therefore increased over and above its reported book value, a trend that is expected to continue.
As JV investments grow, Parkit will derive further economic benefit from its role as asset manager through increased fee income and performance incentives on disposition, over and above its equity capital gains.
“We are pleased with the performance of our portfolio investment as measured by improved returns and optimization to date, which indicates an increase in our intrinsic valuation yet to be recognized on our balance sheet. This gap should continue to grow over time.” - Rick Baxter, CEO
The Company also announces that it has granted 700,000 incentive stock options to certain directors and officers of the Company, exercisable at $0.50 per share for a period of three (3) years from the date of grant. This stock option grant is subject to the Company’s Stock Option Plan and regulatory acceptance.
