LAS VEGAS, Aug. 29, 2018 /CNW/ – Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE: PLTH) (“Planet 13” or the “Company”), a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, today announced record financial results for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2018. Planet 13’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).

With two months until the Grand Opening of Phase 1 of the 40,000 square foot Planet 13 Superstore, our team is ahead of schedule. Construction is progressing rapidly, and we are in the market every day buying product from the top cultivators and brands in Nevada, with the expectation that we will be fully stocked by October 1st.

Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13

“Q2 2018 was the eighth consecutive quarter of revenue growth from our Medizin location. Given sustained growth in customer traffic, a team that has consistently made Medizin one of the top-rated dispensaries in Las Vegas1, and the building excitement about a world class cannabis and entertainment destination opening adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip, we are confident that we will hit our financial targets quickly and drive strong returns for shareholders.”

We are well capitalized to execute our business plans and given the performance we are seeing in the market, anticipate rapid revenue and cash flow growth from the Superstore location when it opens.  Based on our discussions with regulators, we estimate 1.1 million square feet of cultivation capacity coming onstream over the next 12 to 18 months in a market that was fully supplied by 250,000 square feet in 2017.

Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13

“This anticipated oversupply will further bolster margins at the Superstore and has enabled our team to both invest now to prepare for the anticipated approval of a lounge concept on-site early next year and to evaluate accretive retail opportunities in other tier-one U.S. destinations. We have locked-down the closest possible location to the Las Vegas Strip, just steps from some of the most valuable entertainment properties in the world, with significant expansion opportunities on-site. We expect the Superstore to rapidly become a global destination for cannabis aficionados and to drive the brand awareness and loyalty required to enable a rapid and profitable expansion across the U.S.”
