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.

investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment
strategies. Approximately $9 trillion in assets are benchmarked against
Russell's US indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a
