Silvergate Slumps on Suspending Dividend

Silvergate Capital (NASDAQ: SI) saw its shares slide after the company suspended payments on its Series A preferred stock dividend, in an effort to preserve capital as it navigates recent crypto market volatility. The stock has been falling since November, after crypto exchange FTX, for whom Silvergate held deposits, collapsed in scandal.

Silverage announced that the Company has suspended the payment of dividends on its 5.375% Fixed Rate Non-Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock, Series A, in order to preserve capital. This decision reflects the Company’s focus on maintaining a highly liquid balance sheet with a strong capital position as it navigates recent volatility in the digital asset industry. The Company continues to maintain a cash position in excess of its digital asset customer related deposits.

The Company’s Board of Directors will re-evaluate the payment of quarterly dividends as market conditions evolve.

Silvergate Capital boasts a status as the leading provider of innovative financial infrastructure solutions and services for the digital asset industry. The Company’s real-time payments platform, known as the Silvergate Exchange Network, is at the heart of its customer-centric suite of payments, lending and funding solutions serving digital asset companies and investors around the world. Silvergate is enabling digital asset markets and reshaping global commerce for a digital asset future.

SI descended $1.35, or 9.6%, to $12.76.
