LAS VEGAS, NV, Nov. 12, 2018 /CNW/ - Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH) (OTCQB:PLNHF) ("Planet 13" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, today announced financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2018. Planet 13's financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS").

"We opened Phase 1 of the 40,000 square foot Planet 13 Superstore on November 1st, and over the first ten days are already well on our way to meeting our expectations for run-rate daily traffic and average ticket on minimal marketing," said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "Our thesis that a unique entertainment destination, proximity to the Las Vegas Strip, and a wide selection of Nevada's best products would drive strong tourist traffic and spending has proven to be correct. We believe that we are just at the beginning of the growth curve at the Superstore and expect to continue to ramp both traffic and average ticket as we execute on our marketing program in the coming weeks. MJBizCon is this week, and our management team is ready to showcase the Superstore for the thousands of cannabis connoisseurs and investors who are in town."    

Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13 added, "In Q3, our Medizin dispensary posted another quarter of sequential revenue growth with a solid gain in average daily traffic. We temporarily closed the Medizin location on October 29th to transfer its licenses to the Superstore. We have a very loyal base of customers at this location and are well-positioned to receive an additional license for Medizin that would enable us to reopen this highly rated1 dispensary and quickly regain this revenue and EBITDA. It is an exciting time to be a Planet 13 shareholder, with several catalysts set to hit before the end of 2018, including additional growth from the Superstore; December's licensing results; and clarity regarding onsite consumption lounges. The Superstore is open and already generating substantial revenue, which will enable us to rapidly execute on these opportunities and enter Phase two of our Superstore expansion plan in the next year."
