Emergent BioSolutions Inc. (NYSE: EBS) today announced that Standard & Poor’s (S&P) has indicated that the company will be added to the S&P MidCap 400® index, effective prior to the open of trading on Friday, July 24. The company will be classified under S&P’s Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) Biotechnology Sub-Industry index.

“The addition of Emergent to the S&P MidCap 400 is an important milestone as we continue on our growth trajectory,” said Richard S. Lindahl, executive vice president and chief financial officer of Emergent BioSolutions. “This move reflects our strong progress as a global life sciences company committed to addressing public health threats, and our efforts to maximize shareholder value by growing revenues and prudently reinvesting in our business.”

The S&P MidCap 400® provides investors with a benchmark for mid-sized companies. The index, which is distinct from the large-cap S&P 500®, measures the performance of profitable mid-sized companies, reflecting the distinctive risk and return characteristics of this market segment.
