MRV Joins Russell Microcap Index

MRV Communications (NASDAQ:MRVC), a global provider in converged packet and optical solutions that empower the optical edge and network integration services for leading communications service providers, announced its inclusion in Russell Microcap® Index as a result of Russell Investments annual reconstitution of its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes finalized on June 27th.

The Russell Microcap® Index measures the performance of the microcap segment of the U.S. equity market and is composed of the 1,000 companies with the smallest market capitalization in the Russell 2000® Index, plus the next smallest 1,000 eligible securities by market cap. Inclusion in the Russell Microcap® Index will remain in place for the ensuing 12-month period. The Russell Indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for passive and active investment strategies. According to Russell Investments, $4.1 trillion in institutional assets currently are benchmarked to its indexes. The Russell Microcap® Index is completely reconstituted annually to ensure new and growing equities are reflected and companies continue to reflect appropriate capitalization and value characteristics. http://www.russell.com/indexes/americas/default.page
