Stonegate Bank Announces Addition to Russell Index

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 20, 2014) -  Stonegate Bank (NASDAQ: SGBK), a Florida-chartered commercial bank headquartered in Pompano Beach, Florida, is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000 Index when Russell Investments reconstitutes its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 27, 2014, according to a preliminary list of additions posted June 13, 2014, at http://www.russell.com/indexes/americas/tools-resources/reconstitution/additions-deletions.page#indexes.

Annual reconstitution of Russell's indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of the last trading day in 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. The Russell 3000 also serves as the U.S. component to the Russell Global Index, which Russell launched in 2007.

Russell Indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $5.2 trillion in assets are benchmarked to the Russell Indexes. Russell calculates more than 700,000 benchmarks daily covering approximately 98 percent of the investable market globally, more than 80 countries and 10,000 securities.
