MONTREAL, June 13, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The management team of Société en
commandite Stationnement de Montréal (the "Société"), has published its
financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.
An exceptional performance
The Société's revenues from on-street parking grew from $56 M to $61 M,
representing a 9.6% increase compared to last year. This positive
performance stems from three factors, namely a decrease in on-street
construction projects in 2013, a lower rate of non-payment due to a
combination of improved surveillance and the efforts of the SPVM's
parking agents, as well as user response to the P$ Mobile Service app, thereby fostering payment compliance.
As a result, the Société has contributed a total of $50.5 M to the City
of Montréal in the form of taxes, rents, permits, debenture interest,
compensation and royalties, representing a 14% increase over 2012.
Moreover, the Société confirmed its full repayment, as planned, of the
$20 M payable to the City of Montréal over 10 years.
P$ Mobile Service
The mobile app's popularity has grown exponentially since its launch in
June 2012. Indeed, 25% of all on-street parking fees were paid through
this new method in 2013's closing quarter. Moreover, the Société has
lowered its service fees from 40 ¢ to 30 ¢ in early June 2014.
Lastly, management is pleased with its achievements as it pertains to
its 2012-2015 strategic plan, which includes the objective to enhance
users' parking experience, leverage technological breakthroughs, as
well as contribute to the City of Montréal's economic development.
