Clearent Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies

Merchant services provider Clearent named to Inc. 5000 list.

Clayton, MO, August 24, 2012 --( Today, Clearent announced that it has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies. The Inc. 5000 list ranks businesses according to their percentage revenue growth over a three-year period.

Clearent ranked #583 in its first appearance on the Inc. 5000 list, which is comprised of U.S.-based, privately held, independent businesses. Clearent’s revenue grew 626% from 2008 to 2011, driven entirely by organic growth without the benefit of acquisitions. The merchant services provider's growth can be attributed to several factors, including a growing base of sales partners and the fact that the company developed its processing systems from the ground up. By doing its own back-end processing, Clearent can eliminate the middleman and deliver greater transparency and flexibility for Clearent’s partners and merchants.

Clearent’s growth is also being fueled by its next day funding program, which has a 9:00 Eastern cut off time. Merchants appreciate the fact that their money is truly available the next day and that they can get their money faster with Clearent than with other processors.

“Appearing on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies is a tremendous honor for Clearent. Clearly customers are responding to our unique approach to payment processing. Without the support of our partners, loyal customers and dedicated employees, our rapid growth would not have been possible,” said Dan Geraty, CEO of Clearent.
