Cepton, Inc. (“Cepton”) (Nasdaq: CPTN), a Silicon Valley innovator and leader in high performance MMT® lidar solutions, announced today that it will be added as a member of the Russell 3000® index at the conclusion of the 2022 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens on June 27, 2022, according to a preliminary list of additions posted on June 3, 2022.

Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures roughly the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 6, 2022, 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 primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings, and style attributes.

“Cepton is excited to be joining the Russell 3000® index as it enables us to expand awareness of our story among the investment community as we continue to execute against our milestones generating long-term stakeholder value,” said Jun Pei, Cepton’s Co-Founder and CEO. “At Cepton, our design philosophy and technology enabled us to win the largest ADAS series production award to date, and inclusion in the Russell indexes is another point of validation in our ongoing journey as a public company.”

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies. Approximately $12 trillion in assets are benchmarked against Russell’s US indexes. Russell indexes are part of FTSE Russell, a leading global index provider.
