The Russell Microcap® Index, a listing of the smallest 1,000 companies in the Russell 2000® ranked by market capitalization, plus 1,000 smaller US-based listed stocks, is a widely-used measure of the performance of the smallest tradable securities listed on US stock exchanges.
"We are delighted to be included in this year's Russell 2000, 3000, and Microcap Indexes," said Lorne Weil, Executive Chairman. "We expect that being part of the Russell Indexes will serve to further elevate and broaden our company's profile among those investors who utilize the Russell Indexes in making their investment decisions," added Mr. Weil.
