Membership in the Russell Microcap® Index, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the appropriate growth and value style indexes. FTSE Russell determines membership for its Russell indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.
Jeffrey Peck, iSun’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We entered the public markets by a SPAC merger in 2019, and have successfully completed our deSPAC process with the redemption of all public warrants earlier this year. We recognized our immense opportunity in the renewable energy sector and set on a growth path in the public markets to execute our strategy of organic growth, accretive M&A, and asset ownership for recurring revenue. We have made substantial progress with our recently stated $81 million project backlog, our acquisition of iSun Energy is proving to be accretive, and our revenue generating asset portfolio is growing. We are very proud to be included in the Russell Microcap® Index as recognition that our growth efforts since 2019 have been producing positive results.”
