Liberator Medical Set to Join the Russell Global, Russell 3000 and Russell Microcap Indexes on June 27, According to a Preliminary List Posted on June 13

STUART, FL--(Marketwired - June 18, 2014) - Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LBMH), a leading provider of direct-to-consumer medical products and supplies, today announced it has been selected to join the Russell Global, Russell 3000 and Russell Microcap Indexes when they are reconstituted on June 27, 2014, according to a preliminary list posted on June 13, 2014, on www.russell.com/indexes

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $5.2 trillion in assets are benchmarked to the Russell Indexes. Russell calculates more than 700,000 benchmarks daily covering approximately 98 percent of the investable market globally, more than 80 countries and 10,000 securities.

"We are pleased with the selection of Liberator Medical for inclusion in the Russell Global, Russell 3000 and Russell Microcap Indexes," said Liberator Medical's CEO, Mark Libratore. "We expect that these listings will expose Liberator to a wider range of institutions and investors, which will allow us to broaden our shareholder base and the market for our shares."

About the Russell Indexes to which Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. will be added:

Russell Global Index

Membership in the Russell Global Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate large-cap, small-cap, all-cap indexes as well as the applicable style, sector and country indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

The Russell Global Index, which captures approximately 98% of investable securities globally, is reconstituted annually and all sub-indexes are recalibrated simultaneously to accurately measure current market realities for each market segment. These investment tools originated from Russell's multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the company saw the need for a more objective, market-driven set of benchmarks in order to evaluate outside investment managers.

Russell launched the Russell Global Index in 2007, leveraging the popular methodology from its U.S. indexes. The broad-market Russell 3000® Index serves as the U.S. component to the Russell Global Index.

Russell 3000 Index

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, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in 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.

Russell Microcap

Membership in the Russell Microcap Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
