Roadwork construction surrounding Canopy Denver was completed in December 2017 which should lead to revenue improvements in upcoming periods.

After adjusting for additional one-time costs and the write-off of deferred financing costs related to the refinancing of the OP Holdings debt portfolio, adjusted profit would have been $1,165,312 in 2017.
While the company's 50% owned Fly-A-Way Parking facility in Nashville experienced softness in 2017, cost control and marketing initiatives are being implemented to restore profit growth.
“2017 was an important year for Parkit. We are pleased with the performance of the OP Holdings joint venture, and the reduction in administrative costs. We believe the company is positioned for growth. This includes continuing to focus on OP Holdings and on new direct investments that meet our criteria” said CEO Bryan Wallner.
The Company remains focused on pursuing acquisitions and has made progress identifying opportunities, particularly in Canada, that include parking assets and services as well as opportunities that function and have similar dynamics to parking.
