Press Release

Rise Line Business Credit has launched a lower middle market asset-based lending platform for businesses looking for capital to fund their operations, acquisitions, and restructuring activities.

Led by founders Gaurang Vyas and Dan O’Rourke, Rise Line is an affiliated company of LANDC Investment, a holding company with interests in the financial services sector. Rise Line’s Advisory Board includes prominent industry veteran, Paul Martin, who has successfully launched and developed various lending platforms.

Rise Line addresses capital needs for companies that have been left with limited options in recent years due to tighter regulations at banks and migration of incumbent non-bank lenders to larger transactions. Rise Line offers $1 million to $15 million in asset-based revolvers, term loans, and special
situation financing for qualified businesses in the U.S.

“We see terrific opportunities to provide tailored capital solutions to lower middle market companies that are underserved and largely ignored by the market,” said Dan O’Rourke, Chief Executive Officer at Rise Line. “Our clients take many forms, including, companies looking for growth capital or those seeking
capital to assist a turnaround effort.”

“Rise Line was formed to provide a broad institutional product suite to lower middle market companies while offering investors secured credit exposure to generate favorable risk-adjusted returns,” said Gaurang Vyas, Founder and Managing Principal at Rise Line. “Our team has been active for over 25 years in the secured lending sector and has an aggregate experience of lending and syndicating over $7 billion in loans. We see this initial lending platform to be a springboard for a larger effort over time, adding additional business lines to the specialty finance platform.”
