SolarCity Added to Russell 2000 Index

06:00 EDT Monday, April 01, 2013

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarCity (Nasdaq:SCTY) today announced that it has been added to the Russell 2000®, Russell 3000®, and Russell Global® Indexes, following Russell Investments' first quarter IPO additions to its comprehensive set of global equity indexes.

Membership in the Russell 2000® Index, which remains in place for one year, includes automatic inclusion into the broader Russell 3000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and style indexes. The Russell 2000® Index measures the performance of the small-cap segment of the U.S. equity universe and is a subset of the Russell 3000® Index, representing approximately 10% of the total market capitalization of that index.

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. In the institutional marketplace, an industry-leading $3.9 trillion in assets currently are benchmarked to them. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market capitalization rankings, and style attributes.
