Plexus Capital wins SBA investment company award

A Charlotte firm has been honored by the U.S. Small Business Administration as a 2013 small-business investment company of the year.

Plexus Capital, which provides capital to middle-market companies, has made investments that have resulted in almost 5,000 jobs created or retained, the SBA said Friday.

Plexus is one of two 2013 winners of the SBA's small-business investment company awards. Blue Sage Capital, of Austin, Texas, is the other.

The SBA made the announcement as part of National Small Business Week. The SBA also said Friday that Wells Fargo won the large 7(a) loan lender of the year award for making more than $1.24 billion in loans and supporting more than 37,000 jobs in fiscal 2012.
