Planet 13 Expands To Florida With Harvest Health Acquisition

Planet 13 Holdings Inc. (CSE: PLTH)(OTCQX: PLNHF) is buying a subsidiary of Harvest Health & Recreation Inc. (OTC: HRVSF) in an all-cash deal valued at $55 million. The company will be named Planet 13 Florida Inc. and will purchase a license to operate as a Medical Marijuana Treatment Center issued by the Florida Department of Health to the seller. The acquisition is dependent on the successful close of the Trulieve Cannabis Corp./Harvest arrangement transaction and the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use approval for Planet 13 Florida.

“Florida has long been one of our most coveted markets with over 20 million residents, 130 million annual visitors and incredible consumer demand already demonstrated in the medical program. It was important for us to enter the market prior to a transition to adult-use to put the pieces in place to capitalize on this market in both the short and long term,” said Larry Scheffler, Co-CEO of Planet 13. “We are excited to introduce our best-in-class retail experience and portfolio of popular products to the Florida market and to continue to build the Planet 13 brand across the United States.” Planet 13 is known for its adult-use cannabis superstores in Las Vegas and Orange County. This will be a medical-use only location.

As of August 26, 2021, there were 22 companies with MMTC licenses with 371 dispensing locations across Florida. License holders are not subject to restrictions on the number of dispensaries that may be opened or on the number or size of cultivation and processing facilities they may operate.

“After a lot of planning on how we wanted to approach this market, now is the time for action. We are well-capitalized to complete the initial buildout of our cultivation and retail plan which includes a network of neighborhood stores in priority metro areas to support future SuperStores in Miami, Orlando, and other tourist destinations, said Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO. We have a successful track record of completing large retail and cultivation buildouts on time and on budget. This expertise combined with our differentiated, experience-driven retail and diverse product portfolio gives us confidence moving into the Florida market.”
