NEWS RELEASE
Alerian Announces Real-Time Launch of the Alerian
Size Indices
3/21/2016
DALLAS, March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Alerian announced today the real-time launch of the Alerian Size Indices,
composed of the Alerian Large Cap MLP Index (AMLI), Alerian Mid Cap MLP Index (AMMI), and Alerian Small Cap
MLP Index (AMSI). The three indices, which will be disseminated real-time on a price-return basis and on a total-
return basis, will capture more than 99% of total energy Master Limited Partnership (MLP) market capitalization.
"With the number of energy MLPs more than doubling and their collective market capitalization quintupling over
the past 10 years, interest in grouping these securities in different ways has also taken off," said Alerian President
and CEO Kenny Feng. "In the same way that the Energy MLP Classification Standard (EMCSSM) enables stakeholders
to better evaluate sector exposure, the Alerian Size Indices will provide investors, management teams, and analysts
with an additional research and assessment tool based on company size."
