NEW YORK, June 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 6D Global Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:SIXD), a premier digital business solutions company listed on NASDAQ under stock symbol "SIXD," today announced that the Company was added as a member of four Russell indexes including the Russell 2000®, Russell 3000®, Russell Global, and Russell Microcap® after the markets closed on June 26 as part of Russell Investment's quarterly additions of select initial public offering (IPO) companies.
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution 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. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $5.7 trillion in assets are benchmarked to the Russell's U.S. indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
"6D Global's addition to the four Russell indexes is a gratifying milestone for the company and our dedicated global staff," said Tejune Kang, CEO of 6D Global Technologies, Inc. "6D Global's inclusion represents an opportunity to increase our visibility within the investment community and expand our SIXD shareholder base."
