Planet 13 Q4 and Full Year 2023 Earnings Overview

The TDR Three Key Takeaways:

  1. Planet 13 Holdings reported preliminary financial results for Q4 and full year 2023, showing solid revenue and positive adjusted EBITDA.
  2. The company retains approximately 9% of Nevada’s retail market share and ranks in the top five for various categories.
  3. Expansion efforts include opening a new Illinois location, acquiring VidaCann, and planning a consumption lounge in Las Vegas.

Planet 13 Holdings (CSE:PLTH)(OTCQX:PLNH), a leading vertically integrated multi-state cannabis company, announced its unaudited preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and the full year ended December 31, 2023. The information is presented in U.S. dollars and follows U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

The company is scheduled to host a conference call on March 13, 2024, to discuss these financial results in detail, which will include discussions on key business highlights, strategy, and outlook. The call will be led by Co-CEOs Bob Groesbeck and Larry Scheffler, along with CFO Dennis Logan.

In their announcement, Planet 13 reported a solid performance for the quarter, highlighting their revenue and positive Adjusted EBITDA, attributed to gross margin expansion and effective cost controls, despite the challenging macroeconomic conditions and cannabis price compression. The company emphasized its significant retail market share in Nevada and the strength of its brand across multiple categories.

The company also mentioned strategic movements, including the opening of a new location in Illinois and the ongoing acquisition of VidaCann, along with the introduction of a consumption lounge at the Las Vegas SuperStore. These developments are anticipated to contribute to the company’s growth strategy, particularly focusing on the potential of adult use in Florida and enhancing scale, efficiency, and operating leverage in core states to boost operating cash flow and shareholder value.

My Take as an Analyst:

While Planet 13 reports solid revenue and positive Adjusted EBITDA, it’s important for investors to note that these figures are adjusted, meaning they may not represent the company’s financials in their true form. This adjustment can sometimes mask underlying financial issues and should be approached with caution. On a positive note, the company holds a significant market share in Nevada and is taking strategic steps to expand and solidify its presence in other states, which could be beneficial in the long run.

However, the company needs to manage the challenges posed by the macroeconomic environment and price compression in the cannabis market effectively. While their expansion and strategic moves are promising, the actual benefit and impact on the company’s bottom line will need to be closely monitored in the upcoming quarters. The strength of their balance sheet, with over $17 million in cash and minimal debt, provides them with a solid foundation to execute their growth plans, but the effectiveness of these plans in driving sustainable growth and profitability remains to be seen.
