“Today’s announcement is an extension of the strategy we’ve laid out for investors of adding cultivation and production in California to vertically integrate and bring our highly popular brands into the state.

We’ve witnessed -7% during the past week in terms of shareholder gains in the company, a bounce that has taken root amid largely bearish action over the larger time frame. The situation may be worth watching. PLNHF has a history of dramatic rallies. What’s more, the company has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running 33% beyond its prior sustained average level.
At this time, carrying a capital value in the market of $520 million, PLNHF has a significant war chest ($163M) of cash on the books, which is balanced by about $15.1M in total current liabilities. PLNHF is pulling in trailing 12-month revenues of $138.2M. In addition, the company is seeing major top-line growth, with y/y quarterly revenues growing at 36.7%. You can bet we will update this one again as new information comes into view.
