“We are pleased to note our addition to the prestigious Russell Indexes, as it marks another significant step in the development of our company as a leader in the women’s healthcare field,” said Robert Finizio, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The enhanced profile generated by the Russell Indexes will enable us to increase awareness of TherapeuticsMD and reach a broader investor base.”

The Russell 2000 ® Index is a subset of the Russell 3000 ® Index representing approximately 10% of the total market capitalization of that index. It includes approximately 2,000 of the smallest securities based on a combination of their market cap and current index membership. The Russell 2000 ® Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive and unbiased small-cap barometer and is completely reconstituted annually to ensure larger stocks do not distort the performance and characteristics of the true small-cap opportunity set.About TherapeuticsMD, Inc.
