·5 min read

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2022 /Charge Enterprises, Inc. (Nasdaq:CRGE) ("Charge" or the "Company"), a global business with the vision of connecting people everywhere with communications and electric vehicle ("EV") charging infrastructure, is set to be added to the Russell 3000®, Russell 2000®, and Russell Microcap® Indexes, effective after the US market opens on June 27, as part of the 2022 Russell indexes annual reconstitution.

Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 6, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the US all-cap Russell 3000® Index, 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. Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which also remains in place for one year, also means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.

"We are very excited to be added to the Russell indexes on the heels of our Nasdaq Global Market listing and expect this inclusion to further improve our visibility with institutional investors," stated Andrew Fox, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Charge Enterprises. "We remain focused on our strategy to leverage our existing businesses and invest in the high growth areas of EV charging and 5G infrastructure to drive sustainable revenue expansion that will benefit all stakeholders."

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $12 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell's US indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
