  • Q2 2021 Adjusted EBITDA[1] of $7.2 million

All figures are reported in United States dollars ($) unless otherwise indicated

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / August 26, 2021 / Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH) (OTCQB: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, 2021. Planet 13's financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

"Q2 was a strong quarter for Planet 13. With tourism back, the Superstore's in-store experience is once again proving that it is on the list of must visit destinations for any trip to Vegas. Every week thousands of people share their experience at the store with their friends on social media and the compounding impact of that organic marketing is obvious as even after being open for three years we are seeing strong growth and increasing share of the Nevada market every month," said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "Along with our dispensary operations, our product brands are continuing to gain traction. According to Headset data, HaHa was the number two edibles and number three beverage brand in the state and TRENDI was the number three concentrate and number six vape brand."

"Along with stellar performance from our Nevada operations, 2021 has been about securing our next growth opportunities. I'm proud to say we opened our Orange County location on time and on budget. We are now focused on growing consumer awareness that will ultimately drive the sales we know are possible from that location," commented Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "Subsequent to the quarter, we also won a dispensary license for the Chicago area giving us a clear path for our next SuperStore. Supported by a robust M&A pipeline and over $130 million in cash, Planet 13's future is bright."

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. Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) is calculated as net earnings before finance costs (net of finance income), income tax expense, share-based compensation, one-time costs 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.
