Ring Energy Set to Join Russell 3000® Index
THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ring Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: REI) (“Ring” or the “Company”) today announced it is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000® Index at the conclusion of the 2022 Russell Indexes Annual Reconstitution, according to a preliminary list of additions posted by FTSE Russell on June 3, 2022. Inclusion in the index will take effect after the U.S. market opens on June 27, 2022.
The annual reconstitution of the Russell indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of May 6, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the US all-cap Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or in the small-cap Russell 2000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.
Mr. Paul D. McKinney, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Joining the Russell 3000® Index is a significant milestone for Ring Energy, which we view as a direct result of our focused efforts to drive incremental efficiencies in our development and operational efforts designed to increase shareholder value. We welcome the enhanced visibility and distribution provided by our inclusion in the Russell 3000® Index as a way to broaden awareness of our Company within the institutional Investor community.”
