Business NH names Direct Capital one of its ‘Fast Five’ growth companies Recognition comes just weeks after national financing leader wins spot on Inc. 5000 list

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (October 17, 2013) - Direct Capital, a leading national small business lender, has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies in New Hampshire by a statewide business publication.

Direct Capital’s place on the Business NH Magazine “Fast Five” list was secured by an average of 49.8% growth over the last three years, largest among any finance firm in the state.

“The success of Direct Capital shouldn’t come as a surprise,” the magazine wrote. “After all, who should be better as effectively growing a company than one designed to help other businesses grow?"

The company - which provides equipment financing, business loans, and working capital to small businesses - won the number-four spot on the list just weeks after being named to the Inc. 5000 and Monitor 100 lists of top growth companies.

“We’re honored to be recognized as one of the top growth companies by Business NH magazine,” said Stephen Lankler, senior vice president at Direct Capital. “Our growth is a reflection of our ability to meet the lending needs of small businesses across the country and this award validates that we are making an impact.”

Direct Capital also ranks eighth on the magazine’s list of the top 100 private companies in New Hampshire. The company has been based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire for all of its 20 years in business.
