BUENA, N.J., June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IGI Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE MKT: IG; IGI or the Company), a specialty generic topical pharmaceutical company, has been added as a member of the broad-market Russell 3000® Index after the equity markets closed on June 27 as Russell Investments reconstituted its comprehensive family of global indexes.
Annual reconstitution of Russell's U.S. indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of the end of May, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the Russell 3000, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or small-cap Russell 2000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
"We are very pleased to be included in the Russell 3000 Index," commented Jason Grenfell-Gardner, President and CEO of the Company. "We believe that our inclusion in the Russell Indexes will further bolster our visibility and reach in the investment community as we continue to execute our strategy to be a leader in the specialty generic topical prescription drug market."
