AFC Gamma, Inc. (AFCG) recently declared a quarterly dividend of $0.48 per outstanding share of common stock for the quarter ending June 30, 2023. This dividend represents an annual run rate of $1.92 and is expected to be sustainable based on the current portfolio performance. AFC Gamma authorized a share repurchase program of up to $20 million of its outstanding common stock due to the current volatility in AFC Gamma's share price. Executives of AFC Gamma have already purchased approximately $2.9 million worth of AFC Gamma stock since the beginning of 2023. The share repurchase program allows for acquisition through various methods and is authorized until December 31, 2025. Recent developments include portfolio updates, including the sale of a credit facility, paydowns, and repayments from borrowers. The challenging cannabis environment and difficulties in deploying capital in traditional real estate contribute to potential cash drag. Despite quality deal flow, the bid-ask spread and economic uncertainties may extend the capital deployment timeline.
