Harte Hanks Inc. (Nasdaq: HHS), a global customer experience company, is set to join the Russell Microcap® Index at the conclusion of the 2022 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 27, according to a preliminary list of additions posted June 3.
Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
Harte Hanks CEO, Brian Linscott, commented: “Being added to the Russell Microcap index, just a few months after returning to a national exchange with our NASDAQ uplisting, represents the culmination of our turnaround. This achievement should expand our visibility and liquidity, exposing Harte Hanks to index-focused investors.”
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies.
