(PLTH) gained 13 cents to $1.62 on 237,300 shares after renegotiating its agreement to acquire a cannabis sales licence and lease for a dispensary in Santa Ana, Calif., which would be Planet 13's second operating dispensary. The week started with Planet 13 announcing that it had walked away from the deal, citing a desire to preserve cash amidst COVID-19-caused uncertainty. As of Dec. 31, Planet 13 had $11.8-million (U.S.) of working capital and $12.8-million (U.S.) of cash.
The original agreement called for Planet 13 to pay $5.8-million (U.S.) in cash, $4-million (U.S.) worth of shares plus a $200,000 (U.S.) deposit, for total cost of $10-million (U.S.). The purchase price has been revised down to $5-million (U.S.), with just $800,000 (U.S.) in cash, a $200,000 (U.S.) deposit and 3.94 million Planet 13 shares ($4-million (U.S.) worth).
