SWK Holdings Corporation Added to Russell 3000® Index, Russell 2000® Index and Russell Microcap® Index

SWKHD

DALLAS, June 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SWK Holdings Corporation (Nasdaq: SWKH), a life science-focused specialty finance company catering to small-and mid-sized commercial-stage companies, announced today its addition to the Russell 2000, Russell 3000 and Russell MicroCap Indexes as part of their annual reconstitution. SWK's inclusion in the Russell indexes will be effective after the U.S. market opens on Monday, June 27, 2022.

"SWK's return to these indexes is an affirmation of the value that we are building for the company's shareholders and will expand awareness of our company within the investment community, increase liquidity of our stock, and broaden our shareholder base," said Winston Black, Chairman and CEO of SWK Holdings. "We have steadily helped address the funding needs of our life sciences clients and positioned our Enteris BioPharma subsidiary for growth, while maintaining financial discipline."

Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 6, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the U.S. all-cap Russell 3000® Index, as well as the Russell Microcap® Index remains in place for one year and means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider, determined index membership primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.
