Libbey Inc. Joins Russell 3000 Index

July 6, 2010

Libbey Inc. announced that it was added to the broad-market Russell 3000 Index when Russell Investment Group reconstituted its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 25, 2010. Membership in the Russell 3000, which remains in place for one year, means Libbey will automatically be included in the small-cap Russell 2000.

“We believe that Libbey’s inclusion in the Russell 2000 should increase our exposure to a wider group of investors and institutions,” John F. Meier, Libbey chairman and chief executive officer, said. Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies.
