NEW YORK, Oct. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silver Spike Investment Corp. (NASDAQ: SSIC) (“SSIC”), allocated a total of $21 million to the recently announced Verano Holdings Corp. (“Verano”) $350 million senior secured credit facility. Verano is a leading, vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis operator in the U.S., devoted to the ongoing improvement of communal wellness by providing responsible access to regulated cannabis products.
