Akoya Set to Join Russell 3000® Index
MARLBOROUGH, Mass., June 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Akoya Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: AKYA) (“Akoya”), The Spatial Biology Company®, is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000® Index at the conclusion of the 2021 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 28, 2021, according to a preliminary list of additions posted by FTSE Russell on June 4, 2021.
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. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.
“We are pleased Akoya is set to join the Russell 3000® index, and we believe this will increase the overall awareness of, and exposure to, our stock among the investment community,” said Brian McKelligon, Chief Executive Officer of Akoya. “Our inclusion follows the successful closing of our IPO in April, which raised $153.3 million in gross proceeds, and validates our commitment to increasing shareholder value and growing our spatial biology platform.”
