Farmers National Banc Corp. Set to Join Russell 3000® Index

CANFIELD, Ohio--()--Farmers National Banc Corp. (Farmers) (NASDAQ: FMNB) today announced that it will be added to the broad-market Russell 3000® Index at the conclusion of the Russell US Indexes’ annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 27, according to a preliminary list of additions posted on June 10.

“Inclusion in the Russell 3000® Index is a significant milestone for us as we continue to execute our growth strategy,” stated Kevin J. Helmick, President and CEO of Farmers. “Over the past year, our total assets have increased nearly 65% as a result of strong organic growth, as well as from the contribution of 2015’s mergers with National Bancshares and Tri-State 1st Banc. This growth has enhanced our financial results and has increased our valuation paving the way for us to be included in the Russell 3000®. As a member of the Russell 3000®, we will further increase our exposure to investors and the financial community. We are excited as more investors learn about our impressive past growth and future prospects.”

Annual reconstitution of the Russell US indexes captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of the end of May, 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. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

Indexes provided by FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider, are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $6 trillion in assets are benchmarked against the Russell US indexes.
