Primerica Joins The Standard & Poor’s MidCap 400 Index

Primerica, Inc. (NYSE:PRI), the largest independent financial services marketing company in North America, will replace The Shaw Group (NYSE:SHAW) in the S&P MidCap Index after the close of trading on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, according to S&P. To be included in this index, a company’s stock must have a total market capitalization that ranges from $750 million to $3 billion. Primerica currently has a market capitalization of approximately $1.9 billion.

John Addison, Chairman of Primerica Distribution and Co-Chief Executive Officer said, “After the completion of our 2010 IPO, we were gratified to be included in the Russell 2000 Index. Today, we are elated that we are now also included in the prestigious S&P MidCap 400 Index.”

S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC, a subsidiary of the McGraw-Hill Companies, is the world’s largest global resource for index-based concepts, data and research. Along with the S&P MidCap, it is home to iconic financial market indicators, such as the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. S&P Dow Jones Indices have over 115 years of experience constructing innovative solutions that fulfill the needs of investors.

Rick Williams, Chairman of the Board and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Primerica said, “Inclusion in the S&P MidCap Index marks another important milestone for Primerica as a publicly traded company. Our addition to this esteemed index will provide outstanding exposure for Primerica among both institutional and retail investors.”
