EFFINGHAM, Ill., June 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midland States Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ:MSBI) today announced that it is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000® Index at the conclusion of the Russell US Indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 27th, according to a preliminary list of additions posted on June 10th by FTSE Russell.

According to information provided by FTSE Russell, 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, also means 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 states that it determines membership for its Russell indexes by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

“We are very pleased to be added to the Russell indexes,” said Leon J. Holschbach, President and Chief Executive Officer of Midland States Bancorp.  “The Russell indexes are widely followed within the investment community, and we believe that our inclusion, especially coming just weeks after our IPO, will further drive awareness of our Company as an attractive investment as we continue executing on our strategic plan for further growth.”
