Concrete Pumping Holdings Joins the Russell 3000® Index and the Russell Microcap® Index
DENVER, July 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concrete Pumping Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: BBCP) (the “Company” or “CPH”), a leading provider of concrete pumping services and concrete waste management services in the U.S. and U.K. markets, has joined the Russell 3000® Index and the Russell Microcap® Index as a result of the 2019 Russell Indexes annual reconstitution. This is effective after the U.S. market opens today.
Membership in the Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the small-cap Russell 2000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell U.S. Indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in index funds designed to track stocks included in the Russell Microcap® Index.
“Being added to the Russell 3000 Index and the Russell Microcap Index is an important milestone for CPH and is a testament to the progress we are making as a public company,” said Concrete Pumping Holdings CEO Bruce Young. “We anticipate the addition to both indexes will increase our visibility with institutional investors as we continue to execute on our strategic growth plan.”
Russell Indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $9 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell's U.S. Indexes. Russell Indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
