Annual Changes to the NASDAQ-100 Index

Nasdaq (Nasdaq:NDAQ) today announced the results of the annual re-ranking of the NASDAQ-100 Index® (Nasdaq:NDX), which will become effective prior to market open on Monday, December 19, 2016.

The following four companies will be added to the Index: Cintas Corporation (Nasdaq:CTAS), Hasbro, Inc. (Nasdaq:HAS), Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq:HOLX), KLA-Tencor Corporation (Nasdaq:KLAC).

The NASDAQ-100 Index is composed of the 100 largest non-financial companies listed on The NASDAQ Stock Market® and dates to January 1985 when it was launched along with the NASDAQ Financial-100 Index®, which is comprised of the 100 largest financial stocks on NASDAQ®. These indexes act as benchmarks for financial products such as options, futures, and funds. The NASDAQ-100 is re-ranked each year in December, timed to coincide with the quadruple witch expiration Friday of the quarter.

On a cumulative price return basis, the NASDAQ-100 Index has returned almost 3,731% since inception, although past performance is not indicative of future performance.

The NASDAQ-100 Index is the basis of the PowerShares QQQ Trust (Nasdaq:QQQ) which aims to provide investment results that, before expenses, correspond with the NASDAQ-100 Index performance. In addition, options, futures and structured products based on the NASDAQ-100 Index and the PowerShares QQQ Trust trade on various exchanges.

As a result of the re-ranking, the following four companies will be removed from the Index: Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (Nasdaq:BBBY), NetApp, Inc. (Nasdaq:NTAP), Stericycle, Inc. (Nasdaq:SRCL), Whole Foods Market, Inc. (Nasdaq:WFM).
