Inc. Magazine Reveals Its 26th Annual List of America's 500 Fastest-Growing Private Companies

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 28, 2007) - Inc. magazine today ranked Mercury Capital, a Southern California-based Equipment Finance Company, No. 196 on its 26th annual "Inc. 500" list of the fastest-growing private companies in the U.S.

"If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500," said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. "These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can't live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine's tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition."

Barry Lyon, President of Mercury Capital since its founding in 2001, established the company on the belief that lending need not be a convoluted and painful process. Says Lyon, "We bring a sense of clarity to clients new to leasing, and meet the need for comprehensiveness and sophistication for those more experienced." This breadth of scope and service has made Mercury Capital the fastest-growing Equipment Finance Company on the Inc. 500, posting an eye-popping three-year sales expansion of nearly 1,100.0%.

From trucks and computers to refrigeration equipment and software, Mercury Capital's leasing specialists focus on providing clients with service that is far more personal and efficient than the typical bank-loan headaches and automated run-arounds. "Instead," Lyon says, "We put a real emphasis on customer support that is genuinely helpful and specifically targeted." He goes on to explain, "Lending does not need to be complicated. By keeping it uncomplicated, we strive to turn every customer into a repeat customer."

And, according to the numbers and the Inc. 500, it's working. Like gangbusters.
