NEW CANAAN, Conn., Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NewLake Capital Partners, Inc. (OTCQX: NLCP) (“The Company” or “NewLake”), a leading provider of real estate capital to state-licensed cannabis operators, following up on yesterday’s earnings release today announced that its Board of Directors authorized a $10 million share repurchase program and the formation of an independent Environmental, Social & Governance (‘ESG’) committee of the Board of Directors.

The share repurchase program, which is effective immediately, allows for the repurchase of up to $10 million of the Company’s common shares through December 31, 2023. Any purchases made pursuant to the program will be made either in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions, or pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rules 10b-18 of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“While there continues to be attractive investment opportunities across the cannabis real estate sector, we think there is also compelling value in our stock. The authorization of a $10 million share repurchase program underscores our confidence in the quality of our portfolio, robust pipeline and growth opportunity of the cannabis industry for many years to come,” stated Anthony Coniglio, NewLake’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Additionally, the Board’s formation of an independent ESG committee reaffirms our commitment to having the highest standard of oversight, strategy and management of all ESG matters. By making this a committee of the Board versus a subcommittee, we are elevating our focus and accountability on this important initiative.”
