Jul 01, 2008 (08:07 AM EDT)
SHENZHEN, China, July 1 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. ('The Company' & 'CSST'), a leading provider of digital surveillance technology in the PRC, today announced that it was added to the U.S. small-cap Russell 2000(R) Index after the equity markets closed on June 27 as Russell Investments reconstituted its comprehensive family of global indexes. Membership in the Russell 2000, which remains in place for one year, is based on membership in the broad-market Russell 3000(R) Index. The stock also was added systematically to the appropriate growth and value indexes.
Guoshan Tu, Chief Executive Officer, stated, ''We are pleased that CSST has been added to the Russell indexes, which reflects strong continued progress of our operating results. Our inclusion in these indexes represents a further milestone for our company and provides CSST greater visibility among index investors and funds."
The Russell 3000 also serves as the U.S. component to the Russell Global Index, which Russell launched last year.
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. An industry-leading $4.4 trillion in assets currently are benchmarked to them. These investment tools originated from Russell's multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the company saw the need for a more objective, market-driven set of benchmarks in order to evaluate outside investment managers.
