PLANO, Texas, June 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuvectra Corporation (NASDAQ:NVTR), a neurostimulation medical device company, announced today that it has been added to the Russell Microcap® Index. The addition occurred at the close of trading on June 24, 2016 when FTSE Russell reconstituted its comprehensive set of U.S. and global indexes.
Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which remains in place for one year, provides automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
“The addition to the Russell Microcap Index will help expand awareness of Nuvectra in the investment community and is another positive development since becoming a public company,” said Scott Drees, Chief Executive Officer. “Nuvectra is well positioned in the $1.7 billion Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) market with our highly differentiated and IP-protected neurostimulation platform. We are on track with our U.S. field sales force hiring and have received a very favorable early response to the Algovita SCS system, during our initial commercial activities.”
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.
