Planet 13 Announces Customer Traffic for December 2018 and Provides Update on TRENDI brand

LAS VEGAS , Jan. 7, 2019 /CNW/ - Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (PLTH.CN) (PLNHF) ("Planet 13" or the "Company"), a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, announced today that it served 1,430 customers per day in December with an average ticket above stated expectations.

Bob Groesbeck , Co-CEO of Planet 13 said, "We are very pleased with the trajectory of customer traffic and average ticket at the Superstore, having increased our December revenue and customer counts over November in what is always a seasonally slow period for Las Vegas convention and visitor traffic. With the Consumer Electronics Show kicking off a historically strong period on January 8 th and our marketing efforts continuing to ramp-up, we expect to continue growing the number of customers served per day and amount of revenue generated.

Mr. Groesbeck added, "Our TRENDI launch has also been a resounding success, with sales of our newest in-house brand reaching approximately 5% of total sales in December from a standing start in November. Sales of this new line, geared toward the tourist audience, exceeded our expectations and we have re-tooled to grow production in 2019 given demand-driven supply shortages experienced into year-end."

Planet 13's TRENDI brand launched on November 12  with a focus on tourist customers. Demand for TRENDI has consistently exceeded supply, growing from ~1,700 units sold in November to over 5,000 units in December, resulting in a 260% month over month increase in revenue generated. The brand has 3 product types including disposable vapes and concentrates. The most popular product is a 0.3g Disposable Vape that caters to tourists who are only in Las Vegas for a short period and looking for a premium and discreet cannabis experience.
