Scott Gordon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Silver Spike, commented “We have built a robust portfolio of loans over the past year and are excited to announce our inaugural regular quarterly dividend and special dividend. Our ability to announce our first dividends, after commencing operations as a “blind pool” with no investments, is a testament to Silver Spike's rigorous underwriting standards, specialized structuring skills and cannabis expertise. The cannabis market remains challenging for operators and investors, but we continue to see attractive investment opportunities and will seek to add investments to the portfolio in a disciplined manner.”
Silver Spike will host a conference call and webcast to discuss the Company's second quarter 2023 financial results at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, August 11, 2023.

Net Asset Value
As of June 30, 2023, NAV per share increased to $14.49, compared to $14.29 as of March 31, 2023. The increase in NAV per share was primarily driven by the results from operations. Total net assets as of June 30, 2023 were $90.0 million, compared to $88.8 million as of March 31, 2023.

Those stockholders whose shares are held by a broker or other financial intermediary may receive dividends in cash by notifying their broker or other financial intermediary of their election.

S . industry is sizeable, growing rapidly, and estimated to reach ~ $ 57 bn by 2028 F, representing a ~ 11 % CAGR from 2021 . 1 Compelling opportunities for lenders to profit from the favorable supply and demand imbalance for debt capital , as the debt servicing capacity of cannabis companies far outstrips the available supply of institutional debt capital . We believe this opportunity will persist for many years, regardless of any near - term federal regulatory action . Within the $ 1 . 3 trillion private credit market today, direct lending in cannabis will remain outside the purview of most banks and traditional alternative asset managers . Near - term regulatory action (e . g . , SAFE Banking) will be a step in the right direction, but likely will not meaningfully change the complex industry dynamics . Lenders can demand various structural protections and have significant pricing power, driving attractive risk - adjusted returns . Complex regulatory, operational, and legal frameworks that vary state to state create high barriers of entry to traditional capital providers .

Estimated Yield to Maturity (“YTM”) includes a variety of fees and features that affect the total yield, which may include, b ut are not limited to, original issue discount (“OID”), exit fees, prepayment fees, unused fees, and contingent features. The es tim ated YTM calculations require management to make estimates and assumptions, including, but not limited to, the timing and amounts of loan draws on delayed draw loans, the timing and collectability of exit fees, the probability and timing of prepayments, and the p ro bability of contingent features occurring. We have not assumed any prepayment penalties or early payoffs in our YTM calculations. Estimat ed YTM is based on current management estimates and assumptions, which may change. Actual results could differ from those estima tes and assumptions. For floating rate loans, future Prime Rates are assumed to be equal to the Prime Rate applicable to the current interest payment period. Weighted average YTM of loans is gross of expenses, excludes cash holdings, and is calculated using t he investment values shown.
