NEW YORK, Sept. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Silver Spike Investment Corp. (“Silver Spike” or the “Company”), a specialty finance company that was formed to invest across the cannabis ecosystem through investments primarily in the form of direct loans to privately held cannabis companies, today reminded investors that the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.63 per share, consisting of a regular quarterly dividend of $0.23 per share and a special dividend of $0.40 per share.
The following are the key dates for the regular and special dividend:
|Record Date||September 15, 2023|
|Payment Date||September 29, 2023|
The special dividend will be paid out of the Company’s undistributed taxable income (taxable income in excess of dividends paid) as of March 31, 2023. The Company expects to also pay a special dividend during the quarter ending December 31, 2023.
The Company has adopted a dividend reinvestment plan (“DRIP”) that provides for reinvestment of dividends on behalf of its stockholders, unless a stockholder elects to receive cash. As a result, when the Company declares a cash dividend, stockholders who have not “opted out” of the DRIP in accordance with the terms of the DRIP and the procedures of their broker or other financial intermediary will have their cash dividends automatically reinvested in additional shares of the Company’s common stock. A stockholder whose shares are held by a broker or other financial intermediary should contact their broker or other financial intermediary as soon as possible in order to determine the time by which the stockholder must take action in order to receive dividends in cash.
