LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / August 9, 2023 / Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH)(OTCQX:PLNHF) (“Planet 13” or the “Company“), a leading vertically-integrated multi-state cannabis company, today announced its financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2023. Planet 13’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”).

“During the quarter, we grew our share of total Nevada state-wide sales and once again had some of the most sold brands across all major product categories. We had a steady quarter in California and across our business we saw improvement in gross margins and EBITDA margins sequentially. Overall we’ve had a good first half of the year,” said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13.

“We are executing on the strategic goals we laid out at the beginning of the year. We continue to strengthen the destination appeal and reputation of the SuperStore and are making progress towards opening our consumption lounge. We are also nearing the completion of our new dispensary in Illinois, an exciting addition to our retail portfolio,” commented Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13. “Between our ongoing construction projects, the strength of our business in Nevada and our rock-solid balance sheet 2024 is shaping up to be a good year for Planet 13.”

Financial Highlights  Q2  2023

Operating Results

All comparisons below are to the quarter ended June 30, 2022, unless otherwise noted

  • Revenue was $25.8 million as compared to $28.4 million, a decrease of 9.1%. The decline in revenue was driven by a decline in the average price of cannabis in Nevada, partially offset by an increase in wholesale revenue in Nevada.
  • Gross profit was $11.9 million or 46.0% as compared to $13.8 million or 48.7%. The decline in gross profit was driven by a decrease in the average price of cannabis in Nevada and a greater percentage of revenue coming from lower-margin wholesale revenue.
  • Total expenses were $15.4 million as compared to $15.6 million, a decrease of 1.6%. The decline in total expenses was driven by lower share-based compensation offset by higher professional fees associated with potential M&A.
  • Net loss of $4.3 million as compared to a net loss of $2.0 million. The increase in net loss was driven by lower gross profit dollars as well as high one-time costs associated with potential M&A.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $3.0 million as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.9 million. The higher Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to improvement in the Company’s operating costs.

Balance Sheet

All comparisons below are to December 31, 2022, unless otherwise noted

  • Cash of $40.5 million as compared to $52.4 million
  • Total assets of $222.7 million as compared to $233.6 million

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

There are financial measures included in this press release that are not in accordance with GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similarly titled measures and metrics presented by other publicly traded companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as supplemental to, and not a substitute for, our reported financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company includes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes certain investors use these measures and metrics as a means of assessing financial performance. EBITDA is calculated as net income (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization and Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA before share-based compensation, the change in fair value of warrants and one-time non-recurring expenses.

The following table presents a reconciliation of net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods presented:
