Research Frontiers, a technology company and the developer of patented SPD-Smart light-control film technology, announced that it has been added to the Russell 2000® Index effective at the U.S. market open today, June 29, 2020.
The Annual Russell index reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the U.S. Russell 2000 Index® remains in place for one year and also means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indices.
Russell indices 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. indices. Russell indices are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
“We are pleased that we have been able to build shareholder value steadily over the past several years and are now included in the Russell 2000® Index,” said Joseph M. Harary President and CEO of Research Frontiers. “We believe our inclusion in this index will positively impact the liquidity in our stock and create an opportunity to increase our exposure and share our compelling story about how SPD-SmartGlass has become the best performing smart window technology in the world, and how it increases energy efficiency, reduces CO2 emissions, increases the driving range of electric vehicles, and makes people more comfortable and secure in their vehicles, homes and offices.”
