Addition is part of Russell indexes’ annual reconstitution and reflects strong business performance and value creation from the Company’s growth and diversification strategy.
PHOENIX, June 27, 2022 — Universal Technical Institute (UTI) (NYSE: UTI) has re-joined the broad-market Russell 3000® Index at the conclusion of the 2022 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the US market opens today.
Annual Russell indexes reconstitution captures the 4,000 largest US stocks as of May 6, 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.
“Being added to the Russell 3000 marks another significant milestone as we continue to execute on our growth and diversification strategy. This further elucidates our ongoing strong performance and our continued commitment to creating shareholder value,” said UTI CEO Jerome Grant. “With the recent announcement of our MIAT College of Technology program expansion to UTI campuses, launching two new campuses this year in Austin, Texas, and Miramar, Fla., and the future expansion into healthcare education through the pending acquisition of Concorde Career Colleges, we are able to not only increase program offerings at our existing campuses but also increase the size of our addressable market, by making more programs available to a broader array of students. Our focus on strong student outcomes and employment drives our efforts, while our industry partners and investors also realize the benefits.”
“With the addition of Concorde and the broadening of our program offerings, we will accelerate Universal Technical Institute’s revenue, profitability, and cash flow growth over the next several years,” said UTI CFO Troy Anderson. “Including the Concorde acquisition, Universal Technical Institute’s longer-term strategic roadmap estimates fiscal 2025 revenue of more than $700 million and an adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 20%. Being listed in the Russell 3000 Index includes Universal Technical Institute in the ranks of other great companies and improves our exposure to an even broader investor base with whom to share our exciting growth story.”
Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for active investment strategies.
