INDIANAPOLIS, April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Allison Transmission Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ALSN), the world's largest manufacturer of commercial duty fully-automatic transmissions and hybrid-propulsion systems, announced today that it was added to the Wilshire 5000 Total Market Index(SM) (Wilshire 5000(SM)) effective after the markets' close on Friday, April 20, 2012. 

"We are very pleased to be part of the Wilshire 5000(SM), " stated Lawrence E. Dewey, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allison Transmission. "The inclusion of Allison Transmission in the Wilshire 5000 Index follows the company's successful initial public offering and our recently issued strong first quarter 2012 financial results. The addition of our company to the Index will provide an opportunity to further broaden our shareholder base and potentially create additional value for our existing shareholders."
