About the market cap segments
Companies belong to a market cap segment (Small-, Mid- and Large Cap) based on its average market value during the given review month. Each segment is reviewed annually based on the average market cap in November with adjustments taking effect in January the following year. The market cap calculations are based on the total number of shares, i.e. both listed and non-listed shares, of a company. Companies with a market value exceeding EUR 1 billion are in the group of “Large Cap”, while companies with a market value smaller than EUR 150 million belong to “Small Cap”. Companies with a market value between EUR 150 billion and EUR 1 billion belong to the “Mid Cap” segment.
12 month transitional period
Companies with a market cap value of more than 50 percent of the minimum or maximum threshold of each segment are transferred into the new segment with immediate effect. Companies with a market cap value of less than 50 percent of the minimum or maximum threshold of each segment are subject to a transitional period and thus one more review before transferring into the new segment. Hence, based on the EUR 1 billion Large Cap and EUR 150 million Mid Cap thresholds, a Large Cap company whose market cap value has not fallen below EUR 500 million, and a Mid-cap company whose market cap value has not fallen below EUR 75 million, are subject to a second review before moving down to the new segment. Similarly, a Mid Cap company whose market cap value has not exceeded EUR 1.5 billion and a Small-cap company whose market cap value has not exceeded EUR 225 million, are subject to a second review before moving up to the new segment.
