Leverages Respective Core Strengths

CHICAGO, May 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- System Property Development Company, Inc., (“System Property”) and SP Plus Corporation (NASDAQ: SP), (“SP+”) announced today that they have formalized a strategic partnership which leverages their respective core strengths in real estate property management and mobility solutions. 

SP+ has taken over operations at 25 System Property owned and managed parking locations in San Francisco, Southern California and Cincinnati, Ohio, which were previously operated by the Motor Parks division of System Property. In addition, SP+ will become System Property’s partner of choice to provide mobility solutions as it expands its national real estate portfolio. SP+ is a leading provider of technology-driven mobility solutions for aviation, commercial, hospitality and institutional clients throughout North America.  For more than 101 years, System Property has owned one of the oldest and largest privately held parking and office real estate portfolios in America, with facilities in seven states across 12 cities.

System Property chose to partner with SP+ due to its outstanding reputation driving technology-driven mobility solutions across North America. “SP+ is an industry leader in all things parking and has a proven track record of adding value to portfolios," said System Property CEO David Damus. "Their leadership and commitment to technology and service made it a natural fit for our growth plans in commercial real estate. Our goal is to expand our national footprint and provide best in class services to our tenants while enhancing the value of our portfolio. SP+ is a great strategic partner to help us achieve our goals.” 

SP+ will operate and manage the parking facilities while System Property continues to own the underlying real estate. "This deal allows us to solely focus on growing our national commercial real estate portfolio," said Damus.

“SP+ is pleased to have been chosen by System Property as its strategic partner to provide mobility solutions. We look forward to deploying our SphereTM Technology platform to optimize the consumer experience at System Property’s owned and managed properties and strengthen the financial outcomes for itself and its property management clients,” stated Marc Baumann, Chairman and CEO of SP+. “We are pleased to welcome the Motor Parks leadership team and staff to SP+ as we work with them to further develop our partnership with System Property.”
