Planet 13 Announces First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Q1 2020 Revenue of $16.8 million; EBITDA of $2.5 million
  • SuperStore accounted for 10.1% of all Nevada cannabis dispensary revenue in Q1 20201

All figures are reported in United States dollars ($) unless otherwise indicated

LAS VEGAS, June 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE: PLTH) (OTCQB: PLNHF) ("Planet 13" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, today announced its financial results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020. Planet 13's financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13 commented, "I am very proud of the solid Q1 Revenue and EBITDA delivered by our team, despite a sharp COVID-19 related drop-off in traffic in the latter half of March. We continued to grow our market share in Nevada during the quarter, with the SuperStore accounting for 10.1% of all retail cannabis sales in the state in quarter – our best yet. While Q2 has been a challenging period for all Nevada businesses, Planet 13 pivoted quickly to a delivery-based model, which has significantly lessened the impact of lower tourist traffic, while broadening the SuperStore's long-term customer base and opportunity set. As Nevada has started reopening, allowing both curbside pickup and limited in-store sales, we have seen a corresponding pickup in sales. As expected, we have also seen continued traction within our delivery program, with over 40% of our customers continuing to choose Planet 13 delivery as their preferred method of shopping."

Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO added, "Our objectives during this time have been to maintain a solid balance sheet, strengthen and grow our local customer base, expand alternative sales channels and set the Company up for growth on the other side of this pandemic. Prior to the impact of COVID-19 we were heading for another record month in March at the SuperStore and expect the momentum to resume as activity in the state continues to increase. Having renegotiated and closed the acquisition of the Santa Ana dispensary license and lease we've added meaningfully to our out-of-state growth profile. We look forward to bringing the Planet 13 experience to Californians. While COVID-19 continues to impact all businesses in Nevada, we see positive signs every day of a progressive return to normal activities. I want to thank our entire team for their efforts, as well as our customers for including us as a part of their daily lives."

Financial Measures

There are measures included in this news release that do not have a standardized meaning under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures and metrics presented by other publicly traded companies. The Company includes these measures because it believes certain investors use these measures and metrics as a means of assessing financial performance. EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is calculated as net earnings before finance costs (net of finance income), income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization of intangibles and is a non-GAAP financial measure that does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies.
