Driving factors

Earlier this month, Planet 13 Holdings announced that its Superstore in Las Vegas served 1,430 customers per day in December, and its average ticket exceeded the company’s expectations. The company’s management had credited the success of its recently launched TRENDI brand for its sales growth in December.

Also, on January 10, in a phone interview with BNN Bloomberg, Bob Groesbeck, the CEO of Planet 13 Holdings, stated that the company is open to a joint venture to expand its operations into Ontario. He added, “We’ve been in touch with a number of groups [in Ontario] that are in the process. If we move forward with that process, we’d look at more [joint venture] opportunities.”

These announcements appear to have increased investors’ optimism, leading to a rise in the company’s stock price, as Ontario is Canada’s largest consumer market.
