LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2022 / Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH)(OTCQX:PLNHF) (“Planet 13” or the “Company”), a leading vertically-integrated cannabis company, today announced its financial results for the three-month and nine-month period ended September 30, 2022. Planet 13’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”).
“High inflation and interest rates have impacted all areas of the economy, driving down consumer spending, including here in Las Vegas,” said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13.
We have been able to maintain 9% retail market share, despite this economic downturn and an 18% increase in Nevada dispensaries year over year. We anticipated this downturn and undertook proactive steps last quarter as well as exercised financial discipline to maintain positive operating cash flow and protect our cash position
Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13
From a competitive standpoint, we continue to perform well, maintaining retail market share in our historical 8-10% range in addition to holding or gaining share for each of our brands in Nevada, according to research firm Headset. In California we are seeing growth from our Orange County location as it continues to win more customers and convert locals into regular and loyal shoppers.
“Through the third quarter, we have focused on effectively balancing capital preservation, profitability, and continuing to execute our future growth initiatives,” commented Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13.
We’ve signed a conditional location in Illinois, adding a fourth state to our portfolio. In Nevada, we’ve begun harvesting at our premium, indoor cultivation expansion and in Florida continue to progress cultivation forward while exploring ways to reduce CAPEX needs and shorten timelines
Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13
While current retail trends are weak, our focus continues to be on building a stronger, more resilient company that is well positioned to take advantage of future legislative changes.
