U.S. companies in the Russell 3000 Index that plan on filing updated peer groups in their proxies can now update their peer groups on file with Equilar. Equilar’s Market Peer Groups are calculated twice a year, in January and July. Companies have until June 28, 2013 to update their peer groups.

Equilar Market Peers are based on the latest publicly-disclosed peer groups of a company. Equilar’s comprehensive process creates the most logical peer groups for companies in the Russell 3000. Peer groups are composed using algorithms proven in the social networking industry, which analyze the interconnected networks of peer companies made evident by peer disclosure, and rank the strength of these connections, whether the connection is one way or reciprocal.
