Erin Energy Added to Russell Indexes
HOUSTON June 30, 2015 ? Erin Energy Corporation (?Erin Energy? or the ?Company?) (NYSE
MKT:ERN) (JSE:ERN) announced today that it has been added as a member of the broad-
market Russell 3000 Index effective after the equity markets closed on June 26 as part of the
2015 Russell indexes reconstitution.
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution 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 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.
Chris Hearne, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Erin Energy commented:
?We are pleased to note our addition to the prestigious Russell Indexes and expect an
enhanced profile and awareness for Erin Energy among a broader investor base.?
