“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.”
