Vringo Added To Russell Microcap Index

The Russell Global Index added Vringo, Inc. (NYSE MKT: VRNG) to the Russell Microcap Index ® after the equity markets closed on June 22, as part of Russell's reconstitution of its global indexes.

Clifford J. Weinstein, Executive Vice President of Vringo commented, "We are pleased to be integrated into the Russell Indexes. This accomplishment is an important milestone in the continued execution of our corporate strategy. We believe our inclusion in the Russell Index will expand Vringo's visibility to a broader range of institutional investors. We look forward to closing our proposed merger with Innovate/Protect, Inc., and continuing to execute on our core strengths in innovation, licensing and protection."

Investment managers and institutional investors use the Russell indexes as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies.

Annual reconstitution of the Russell Indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of the end of May, ranking them by total market capitalization to create the Russell 3000 Index and Russell Microcap Index.
