The S-Network Emerging Infrastructure Builders Index℠ is a capitalization-weighted, float- adjusted index of the most prominent infrastructure stocks from developing and middle-income countries, plus a limited number of developed market stocks with extensive emerging markets operations. To be included in the EIBI index, stocks must pass multiple screens, including for capitalization, float, exchange listing, share price and turnover.
The Index Committee today announced a change in index methodology relating to “Special Dividends” as follows: Any ‘explicitly labeled’ Special Dividend or any dividend larger than 10% of the equity price is considered a special dividend and requires a price and share adjustment to the company that issued the special dividend. The adjustment will be a market neutral event and will have no effect on the divisor.
Detailed information, including constituent data, rules and price information on the S-Network Emerging Infrastructure Builders Index℠ is available at http://www.snetinfrastructureindex.com. Data is also available through most vendors of financial data.
