Planet 13 Announces Full Year 2019 Financial Results and Q1 2020 RevenueLAS VEGAS, April 14, 2020 /CNW/ – Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE: PLTH) (OTCQB: PLNHF(“Planet 13” or the “Company“), a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, today announced financial results for the three-month and twelve-month periods ended December 31, 2019. Planet 13’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).

Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13 commented, “Over the past month, businesses across the country have had to quickly adjust to the reality of COVID-19 related restrictions, and Planet 13 has been no exception. While this has impacted our day to day operations, we are approaching this challenge as an opportunity to deliver safe and responsible cannabis to our community. When cannabis dispensaries in Nevada were told to close, we pivoted to focus on our delivery business, and in only 25 days we’ve ramped our delivery service from five to twenty-eight vehicles and have shifted our customer mix from 15% local area residents, to 100%.”

Mr. Scheffler continued, “While tourism will continue to be a strong driver of our business when things return to normal, this is a unique opportunity for us to build a strong local base and gain lasting market share as we become a fixture in the daily lives of Las Vegas Valley residents.

Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO added, “We opened Phase II of the SuperStore during Q4 and are pleased to report that as projected, it drove increased traffic, customer engagement, and higher average ticket. Through Q4, a seasonally slow period, we delivered $16.5 million in revenue. During Q1 2020, we saw the network effect of Phase II accelerate, resulting in ~$16.6 million in revenue, a 20% increase compared to Q1 of 2019, despite effects of COVID-19 starting in the middle of March. In addition, the customer-facing production facility is fully ramped up and we have begun to offer Planet 13’s portfolio of in-house brands to select third-party dispensaries on a wholesale basis.”

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.
