Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH) (OTCQB:PLTHDF), a vertically integrated cannabis company, today announced its financial and operational results for the first quarter of 2017.
“Planet 13” has become the biggest publicly traded licensed producer of cannabis in the world. It’s crazy to think that only a few years ago, this type of environment would have been unimaginable.
The marijuana business is a multi-billion dollar industry, and as the industry continues to grow, so does the number of cannabis businesses that have received funding. Last year, investors have been flocking to the marijuana industry, which is expected to see a growth rate of 25% in 2017. Today, we’re going to take a look at the latest marijuana funding news, and how this funding is going to shape the future of the industry.
Planet 13 announces financial results for first quarter of 2021
First quarter revenue Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $23.8 million.
Planet 13 accounted for 8.6 percent of all cannabis dispensary revenue in Nevada in the first quarter.
EBITDA in the first quarter of 2021 was $5.2 million.
All figures are in US dollars ($) unless otherwise stated. LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / 27. May 2021 / Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH)(OTCQB:PLNHF) (Planet 13 or the Company), Nevada’s largest vertically integrated cannabis company, today announced its financial results for the three months ended December 31. March 2021 announced. The annual accounts of Planet 13 have been drawn up in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). After a slow January and February due to COVID-19 restrictions in Nevada, March, April and now May have been exceptional. Apparently Vegas is making a comeback, and with hotels and casinos all over the Strip declaring they’ll be selling out in the near future, we think it’s only just beginning.
Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13
After a year of battling the worst of the macroeconomic storm, it’s nice to feel the wind at our backs and see that all the improvements we’ve made are starting to bear fruit. Tourism is making a strong comeback and the SuperStore is doing well. The medical store proves that our combination of entertainment, customer service and product selection works in small retail stores. Our wholesale business is growing at a good pace. We are experiencing a successful return to growth at all of our Nevada locations, said Bob Grosbeck, co-CEO of Planet 13. In California, we are on schedule and on budget for our Orange County Superstore – P13 OC. We applied everything we learned from running the Las Vegas SuperStore to this store. We open in July and we are excited to bring Planet 13 to California and show it for the first time to millions of visitors.
Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13
