Standard & Poor's Announces Changes In S&P Canadian Indices - Quarterly S&P/TSX Composite Index - S&P/TSX Canadian MidCap And SmallCap Indices - Quarterly S&P/TSX Sector Indices Review

Date 13/06/2002

Pursuant to ongoing maintenance of the S&P/TSX Canadian Indices, Standard & Poor's will make index changes as outlined below after the close of trading on Friday, June 21, 2002.

Details of the changes can be accessed by clicking here.

In January, 2002 Standard & Poor's announced a significant revision to the Canadian suite of indices. Key among the changes is a set of new criteria for inclusion and maintenance of public companies in the index. There will no longer be a requirement for the index to have exactly 300 constituents. Company size and liquidity will be the chief attributes determining index membership. Today's announcement of the first quarterly revision results represents the first transition phase of the new Maintenance Policies, and the first implementation of the new Criteria for Inclusion. The next quarterly review will take place in September, 2002, based on market information up to and including August 30th, 2002. After the final transition review in December of 2002, regular quarterly reviews following the full set of guidelines as set out in the Maintenance Policies and Criteria for Inclusion will be in effect starting in 2003.
