Onstream Media Added to Russell Microcap® Index
Jun 26, 2007
Pompano Beach, FL – Onstream Media Corporation ( OTC: ONSM), a leading online service provider of live and on-demand, digital media communications and applications, today announced that the Company has been added to the Russell Microcap® Index when Russell Investment Group reconstituted its family of U.S. indexes on June 22, 2007.
Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which remains in place for one year, means Onstream Media will automatically be included in appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
According to Russell, Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. $4 trillion in assets currently are benchmarked to Russell indexes, according to Russell, and investment managers who oversee these funds purchase shares of member stocks according to that company's weighting in the particular index.
Randy Selman, chief executive officer of Onstream Media stated, “Onstream Media’s inclusion in the Russell Microcap® Index reflects the ongoing growth of the Company and our improving market capitalization. I believe by being a part of this index, our investor audience will further broaden potentially resulting in stronger interest and more universal ownership of our stock.”
