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. 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," said 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. 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," commented 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."

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.
