Correction of Press Release Titled "Planet 13 Announces Q1 2023 Financial Results"

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2023 / Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH)(OTCQX:PLNHF) ("Planet 13" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated multi-state cannabis company, issued the following corrected press release dated May 15, 2023, announcing the Company's Q1 2023 Financial Results.

The corrections are being made to correct typographical errors where the word "loss" was inserted in two bullets stating, "Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.68 million". As corrected, those bullets now state, in relevant part, "Adjusted EBITDA of $0.68 million", clarifying that the Company did not incur an Adjusted EBITDA loss in Q1 2023.

The complete news release, as corrected, is below:

Planet 13 Announces Q1 2023 Financial Results

  • Q1 2023 Net loss of $6.3 million
  • Q1 2023 Adjusted EBITDA of $0.68 million

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

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2023 / Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE:PLTH)(OTCQB:PLNHF) ("Planet 13" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated multi-state cannabis company, today announced its financial results for the three-month ended March 31, 2023. Planet 13's financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP").

"Planet 13 started the year with consistent results notwithstanding overall economic conditions. In Q1 we saw a stabilization in cannabis prices resulting in an improvement in our retail revenue from the SuperStore. In Nevada, we maintained our share of sales above 8%, consistent with our long-term goals. We also saw strong sequential growth in wholesale as we continued to add more accounts and increase sales and productivity with our existing buyers. In California, growth in our wholesale business offset some of the seasonal decline in retail sales," said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13.

"In 2023, our corporate strategy has three key goals: strengthen our core business, increase scale, and improve cashflow and preserve capital," commented Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13. "We are leveraging our strong core business, taking strategic steps to reduce costs across our organization, and aggressively pursuing accretive M&A to add scale, operating leverage and improve our ability to generate free cash flow."

Financial Highlights - Q1 - 2023

Operating Results

All comparisons below are to the quarter ended March 31, 2022, unless otherwise noted

Revenue was $24.9 million as compared to $25.7 million, a decrease of 3.0%. The decline in revenue was driven by a large decline in the average price of cannabis in Nevada, partially offset by an increase in revenue from Planet 13 OC and additional wholesale revenue in California and Nevada.
Gross profit was $10.9 million or 43.7% as compared to $12.9 million or 50.2%. 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 $15.3 million as compared to $16.6 million, a decrease of 7.8%. The decline in total expenses was driven by strong cost control across the organization combined with lower share-based compensation.
Net loss of $6.3 million as compared to a net loss of $2.1 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 $0.68 million as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.61 million. The lower Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to lower gross profit dollars and lower operating leverage.

Balance Sheet

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

Cash of $42.7 million as compared to $52.4 million
Total assets of $227.2 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:
