Vancouver, BC, November 7, 2018 – Parkit Enterprise Inc.

Each shareholder as of the Record Date will be issued 0.5336 of one Right for each Common Share held.

The Rights will be listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") under the symbol "PKT.RT" commencing on November 13, 2018 and will be de-listed from the Exchange at 9:00 a.m. (Vancouver time) on December 14, 2018 (the "Expiry Date"), after which time unexercised Rights will be void and of no value. The Rights Offering includes an additional subscription privilege under which eligible holders of Rights, who fully exercise their Rights, will be entitled to subscribe, on a pro rata basis with other shareholders who participate in the oversubscription, for Common Shares that have not been purchased under the Rights Offering. Parkit intends to use the net proceeds of the Rights Offering for identification and evaluation of new projects.
The Rights issued under the Rights Offering will be evidenced by transferable Rights certificates (each, a "Rights Certificate") which will be mailed, together with a rights offering notice, to all registered holders of Common Shares in a province or territory of Canada as of the close of business on the Record Date. Eligible registered shareholders who wish to exercise their Rights must forward a completed Rights Certificate, together with the applicable funds, to Computershare Investor Services Inc., the Rights agent of the Company, on or before the Expiry Date. Shareholders who own their Common Shares through an intermediary, such as a bank, trust company, securities dealer or broker, will receive materials and instructions from their intermediary.

Leonite Capital LLC (an entity controlled by Avi Geller), and Brad Dunkley (each a "Standby Guarantor", and together the "Standby Guarantors"). The Standby Guarantors will ensure that at least 2,413,790 Common Shares will be subscribed for and that at least $700,000 will be raised under the Rights Offering. It is anticipated that Leonite Capital LLC, as a resident of the United States, will satisfy its standby commitment by purchasing approximately $250,000 common shares by way of a concurrent private placement of common shares at $0.29 per share.
The Standby Guarantors are considered to be "related parties" (within the meaning of Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101")), making the Rights Offering a "related party transaction" (within the meaning of MI 61-101) (the "Related Party Subscriptions").
