KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals Added To Russell 3000, 2000, Global And Microcap Indexes

Stocks in this article: KYTH

KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:KYTH) today announced that the company has been added to each of the broad-market Russell 3000 ® Index, the Russell 2000® Index, the Russell Microcap® Index and the Russell Global® Index as part of Russell's quarterly IPO additions effective as of the close of trading on December 21, 2012.

"We're extremely pleased to be included in these widely known Russell indexes,” said Keith Leonard, KYTHERA’s President and CEO. “We are committed to building long-term value for our stockholders and we value the significance and increased visibility within the investment community that can result from inclusion in these indexes.”

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. An industry-leading $3.9 trillion in institutional assets currently are benchmarked to them.

The annual reconstitution of Russell’s U.S. indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of the end of May, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the Russell 3000 Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in either the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or small-cap Russell 2000 Index, as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes. The Russell 3000 Index also serves as the U.S. component of the Russell Global® Index. More information about Russell Indexes is available at www.russell.com/indexes.
