SALT LAKE CITY, June 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeVantage Corporation (NASDAQ:LFVN), is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000® Index at the conclusion of the Russell US Indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 27.
Annual reconstitution of the Russell US indexes captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of the end of May, 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 large-cap Russell 1000® Index or small-cap Russell 2000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
“We are pleased to join the Russell 3000 Index,” said LifeVantage President and Chief Executive Officer Darren Jensen. “Our addition to the Russell 3000 Index is a reflection of the strong growth we have achieved as we have executed our strategic initiatives and launched innovative science-based products that have been well-received by our customers. We will continue to build upon the key pillars of our business model, positioning LifeVantage for long-term, sustainable growth.”
Indexes provided by FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider, are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $6 trillion in assets are benchmarked against the Russell US indexes.
