As of June 26, 2020, the Russell 2000 includes U.S. Auto Parts Network, and its flagship website, CarParts.com as new additions to the index. The company’s inclusion in this influential list is a testament to the company’s rapid growth and its customer and efficiency-focused strategy. The Russell 2000 Index is a capitalization-weighted stock market index maintained by FTSE Russell that benchmarks the U.S. stock market. U.S. Auto Parts Network and its flagship brand CarParts.com qualified for the list following significant growth in market capitalization over the last six months.
“We are proud to be included in the Russell 2000 Index,” said Lev Peker, CEO of U.S. Auto Parts Network. “It serves as proof that our strategy is working. We are excited to expand our company and accelerate our growth. That said, we will never lose what got us here – providing a real value and real convenience to our customers, empowering them to get back on the road.”
To be considered for inclusion on the Russell 2000, companies are required to meet specific weighted market cap requirements by each evaluation period. These measured qualifications benchmark the performance of smaller, domestically focused businesses. U.S. Auto Parts Network is an automotive and e-commerce company headquartered in Torrance, California.
