Rochester Medical Corporation Set to Join Russell 3000 Index
Date:6/16/2009

STEWARTVILLE, Minn., June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Rochester Medical Corporation (Nasdaq: ROCM) will join the broad-market Russell 3000(R) Index when Russell Investments reconstitutes its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 26, according to a preliminary list of additions posted June 12 on www.russell.com.

Annual reconstitution of Russell's U.S. indexes captures the 4,000 largest U.S. stocks as of the end of May, ranking them by total market capitalization. Membership in the Russell 3000, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the large-cap Russell 1000(R) Index or small-cap Russell 2000(R) Index as well as the appropriate growth and value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

Commenting on the posting, Anthony J. Conway CEO and President of Rochester Medical said, "we are certainly pleased to be included in the Russell Index; I believe it will increase the visibility of Rochester Medical and bring awareness of the Company and its technologies to a broader set of investors throughout the U.S. and International markets."

The Russell 3000 also serves as the U.S. component to the Russell Global Index, which Russell launched in 2007.

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. An industry-leading $4 trillion in assets currently are benchmarked to them. These investment tools originated from Russell's multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the company saw the need for a more objective, market-driven set of benchmarks in order to evaluate outside investment managers.

Total returns data for the Russell 3000 and other Russell Indexes is available at http://www.russell.com/Indexes/performance/default.asp.
