Scott Gordon, chairman and CEO of Silver Spike Investment Corp., stated, “During the quarter, we deployed $24.4 million across two new portfolio companies. As we announced on June 2, 2022, during the quarter we co-led a term loan of up to $170 million to Shryne Group Inc., one of the largest private cannabis companies globally and the owner of Stiiizy, a leading cannabis brand. Subsequent to the Shryne transaction, we participated in a loan to one of the industry's largest US-based privately-owned multi-state cannabis companies.”

“We continue leveraging our platform’s direct origination engine to build a robust pipeline of attractive lending opportunities. Our rigorous underwriting standards and time-tested specialized structuring skills position Silver Spike as one of the leading providers of credit to a regulatorily complex and rapidly-growing industry with little access to traditional sources of capital," continued Gordon.
