AFC Gamma, Inc. (NASDAQ: AFCG) announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2022. with a net income of $11.5 million or $0.57 per basic weighted average share of common stock. This is a 45% increase in net income from last year’s third quarter. It missed Zack’s estimate which was listed at $0.67 per share.

AFC Gamma said it paid a dividend of $0.56 per common share on October 14, 2022, for the quarter, representing a 30% increase from last year’s third quarter.

The distributable earnings were $11.8 million in the quarter or $0.59 per basic weighted average share of common stock, representing a 64% increase to distributable earnings from last year.  AFC noted that the distributable earnings exceeded the declared dividend for the seventh consecutive quarter since going public.

“We are pleased with our third quarter performance and that AFC Gamma’s distributable earnings per share has now exceeded its dividend for the seventh consecutive quarter since going public,” stated Leonard Tannenbaum, AFC Gamma’s Chief Executive Officer. “Given the current broader market environment, we continue to act disciplined in our approach towards deploying capital to new and existing operators. Given substantial repayments subsequent to quarter end, our balance sheet remains strong, and we have ample capacity to complete additional deals with strong risk-adjusted returns.”

The terms of these additional draws replace the prior $50 million accordion option. The Amended Credit Facility now includes a variable interest rate equal to U.S. prime plus 5.75 % per annum, payable monthly in arrears, with a Prime floor of 5.50%.
