LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$CATS #russell2000—Catasys, Inc. (NASDAQ: CATS) (“Catasys” or the “Company”), a leading AI and technology-enabled healthcare company, today announced that it has been added to the Russell 3000® and 2000® Indexes, effective after the U.S. markets open on Monday, July 1, 2019, as part of the 2019 Russell U.S. Indexes reconstitution.
Terren Peizer, Catasys Chairman and CEO, stated, “We are very pleased to have earned our inclusion in the Russell Indexes. Our Company has followed a disciplined strategy that has resulted in steady growth and increased success in identifying, engaging and treating individuals suffering from the consequences of behavioral health disease. We believe our inclusion in the Russell further validates our efforts to date and is a positive endorsement of our ability to execute on our initiatives.”
The annual Russell Indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks at the close of the market on May 10, 2019, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the U.S. all-cap Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in either the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or the small-cap Russell 2000® Index, as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes.
The Russell 2000® Index measures the performance of the small-cap segment of the U.S. equity market. The index is a subset of the Russell 3000® Index and represents approximately 10 percent of the total market capitalization of that index. The Russell Microcap® Index represents 2,000 small cap and microcap stocks and captures the smallest 1,000 companies in the Russell 2000, in addition to 1,000 smaller U.S.-based listed stocks.
Russell U.S. Indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors as the basis for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $9 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell U.S. Indexes. Russell U.S. Indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
