VANCOUVER, Aug. 20, 2018 /CNW/ - Parkit Enterprise Inc. ("Parkit" or "the Company") (TSX-V: PKT; OTCQX: PKTEF) is pleased to announce that it held its Annual General and Special Meeting on August 15, 2018, and that all of the motions proposed in the Notice of Annual General and Special Meeting dated July 12, 2018, which was filed on SEDAR together with Management's Information Circular on July 18, 2018, were approved by the shareholders. The Company would like to thank its shareholders for their participation in the Meeting. The Company would also like to welcome Brad Miller to the board of directors. Mr. Miller is President and owner of the AdvanTec Global Innovations group of companies specializing in marine and industrial manufacturing with a focus on clean tech manufacturing. Under the direction of the newly constituted board of directors, consisting of Brad Miller, Elie Norowitz, Brad Dunkley, David Delaney and Avi Geller, the Company intends to aggressively pursue acquisitions in the parking related real estate space and increase its asset base.
Bryan Wallner, Parkit's CEO has tendered his resignation, effective September 30, 2018. The Company would like to offer its sincere thanks to Mr. Wallner for his service, both as the CEO and as one of the Company's directors. Mr. Wallner has agreed to stay on through September 30, 2018 in order to assist the board with a smooth transition to new senior management.
Effective September 30, 2018, Avi Geller and David Delaney will assume executive director roles at Parkit on an interim basis as the Company searches for a new CEO. Both David and Avi will be responsible for managing Parkit to ensure that value is realized from the Company's current participation in the OP Holdings JV LLC as well as to pursue parking related real estate investments. Mr. Delaney has also been elected as Chairman of the board.
The Company believes that it has a strong asset base consisting of six cash flowing parking real estate assets from which to grow. Furthermore, the Company believes that the value of its direct and indirect real estate assets is substantially higher than the current market capitalization of the Company. The Company is excited to realize this value and increase its asset base by a targeted acquisition strategy. David Delaney, Parkit's Executive Chairman, had this to say: "We have reconstituted the board with a strong slate of directors including two of the Company's largest shareholders. I am very pleased with the progress we have begun to see recently with our SmartPark acquisition and our deal flow has increased exponentially in the last quarter."
