benchmarks for passive and active investment strategies. The Russell Microcap Index comprises the smallest 1,000
securities in the Russell 2000® Index, plus the next 1,000 companies, based on a ranking of all U.S. equities by
market capitalization. The Microcap Index was designed to offer managers and other investors a comprehensive,
unbiased barometer to compare their performance against the genuine microcap marketplace of stocks.
