Cannabis Entertainment Complex (the “SuperStore”) monthly performance for first 12 months of operations.

Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13 commented, “The SuperStore celebrated its one-year anniversary at the start of this month and 12 months on, even with this location generating $59.5 million in revenue² and accounting for 9% of the State’s cannabis sales³, we are just at the beginning of the growth potential for this site and for Planet 13. With Phase II and wholesale operations just getting underway, we expect to continue generating profitable growth as we expand the sales of our well-regarded in-house, in-store produced brands both on-site and in 3rd party dispensaries state-wide commencing in the New Year.”

In Q3, the highly profitable four-wall economics at the SuperStore drove our third consecutive quarter of positive EBITDA and positive operating cash flow. In addition to having recently opened Phase II in Las Vegas, we have been moving forward with our license acquisition in Santa Ana.

Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO

Backed by a tier-one location close to tourist traffic and Planet 13’s world-class customer service, this location is poised to continue to build Planet 13’s reputation for creating world-class cannabis entertainment destinations while generating additional value for shareholders.
