Privia Health to be Added to Russell 2000 Index
ARLINGTON, Va., June 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Privia Health Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRVA), a technology-driven, national physician enablement company that collaborates with medical groups, health plans and health systems, today announced that it is set to join the Russell 2000® Index at the conclusion of the 2021 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the U.S. market opens on June 28, 2021.
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of May 7, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the U.S. all-cap Russell 3000® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in either 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.
“The expected addition of Privia Health to the Russell 2000 Index is the latest milestone in our Company’s history, and closely follows our initial public offering and listing on the Nasdaq Global Select Market in late April of this year,” said Shawn Morris, Chief Executive Officer of Privia Health. “Our inclusion in this index will expand awareness of Privia Health within the investment community, increase the liquidity of our stock, and support our efforts to broaden our shareholder base and drive long-term shareholder value."
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $10.6 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell’s U.S. indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
