SAN DIEGO, June 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Turtle Beach Corporation(Nasdaq: HEAR), a leading gaming audio and accessory provider, today announced it is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000® Index. Inclusion will commence at the conclusion of the 2020 Russell Indexes annual reconstitution and take effect after the US equity market opens on June 29, 2020, according to a preliminary list of additions posted June 5, 2020.
The annual Russell Indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 8, 2020, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the US all-cap Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the small-cap Russell 2000® Index, as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market capitalization rankings and style attributes.
"Inclusion in the Russell indexes reflects our continued growth and complements our long-time leadership position in the video game accessories market," said Juergen Stark, CEO of Turtle Beach. "Turtle Beach's common shares will be afforded broader exposure to investors that rely on the Russell indexes as part of their investment strategy."
