As the cannabis patch seems to get its footing firmly planted back under itself, Planet 13 Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:PLNHF) appears to have staged a strong earnings reaction to kick off September that shouldn’t be overlooked. The stock dropped under a key support at $1.75 that has marked the zone under lows defining the past 5 months of action. But shares turned around powerfully to close well up on the day, nearer to $2/share. Specifically, the company just announced financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2019. Revenues were $16.5 million as compared to $4.4 million, an increase of 275%, with gross profit before biological adjustments was $9.7 million or 58.7% as compared $2.2 million or 50.8%, an increase of 333%.
Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13 commented, “Q2 was another great quarter for Planet 13 as SuperStore sales grew 19.4% sequentially over Q1. Most of this revenue growth dropped to the bottom line with $2.7 million in EBITDA, a 105% sequential growth over Q1. Planet 13’s market share grew in Q2 accounting for 9.5% of all Nevada dispensary sales, compared to 7.9% in Q1.1 We are growing sales on both an absolute basis and as a percentage of the total market. Our Phase II expansion is progressing at full speed with the goal of opening at the end of Q3. Phase II which includes a 15,000 sq. ft. customer-facing production facility, a restaurant, a coffee shop, and event space will build on Planet 13’s leading position in Las Vegas by creating an experience no other dispensary can offer.”
