LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 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 six-month period ended June 30, 2022. Planet 13’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”).
“Since we reported Q1 we’ve seen a material weakening of the consumer, which has impacted tourist spending in Nevada. Despite this, we have been able to maintain above 9% retail market share. We are taking steps as a Company to improve resiliency in the face of this new macro dynamic,” said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13. “During the quarter all of our brands held or gained share in Nevada according to research firm Headset. We also launched our owned brands in California for the first time, starting with the widely popular TRENDI products.”
“Q2 was a big quarter for advancing our growth initiatives. We secured our cultivation property in Florida. We entered into an option agreement to purchase the remaining ownership in our subsidiary which holds an Illinois dispensary license. In Nevada, consumption lounge legislation was finally passed and we’ve completed our premium, indoor cultivation expansion and are just waiting on final approvals,” commented Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13. “Our expansions are progressing according to plan and it is likely that a year from now we will have doubled our retail and state footprint.”
