Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: AIQ), a leading national provider of outpatient diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy services, announced today that it had been added to the Russell Global and Russell 3000 indexes. Alliance was included in the indexes after equity markets closed June 28, 2013 as Russell Investments reconstituted its comprehensive family of global indexes. Annual reconstitution of Russell's U.S. indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. publicly traded stocks as of the end of May, ranking them by total market capitalization.
“We are honored to be included in the Russell indexes. It elevates our profile among investors, while bringing our strategy and achievements to the attention of a wider audience,” said Larry C. Buckelew, Chairman of the Board and Interim Chief Executive Officer of Alliance HealthCare Services.
Membership in the Russell indexes remain in place for one year with membership determined primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes. The Russell indexes provide a comprehensive and unbiased barometer for evaluating stock performance in the U.S. and world-wide equity markets and are completely reconstituted annually to ensure new and growing equities are reflected.
