CHESTNUT RIDGE, N.Y., June 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BioHiTech Global, Inc. ("BioHiTech" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: BHTG), a technology and services company that provides cost-effective and sustainable waste management solutions, today announced that it has been added to the Russell Microcap® Index as part of the Russell Indexes annual reconstitution, which took effect after the US market closed on Friday, June 22nd.
Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider, determines membership for its Russell U.S. Indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes. Approximately $9 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell US Indexes.
"We are pleased to be included in the Russell Microcap Index," said Frank E. Celli, CEO of BioHiTech. "The Russell US Indexes are some of the leading US equity benchmarks for institutional investors and are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. We believe the added exposure resulting from BioHiTech's inclusion in the Russell Microcap Index will help to further increase our visibility in the financial marketplace and broaden our shareholder base as we continue to execute on our business plan for future growth."
