The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) announces the following changes in the S&P Sri Lanka 20 index constituents made by S&P Dow Jones Indices at the 2017 year-end index rebalance.


A revision of the S&P SL 20 methodology in March 2017 established the practice of a semi-annual rebalance of the index (previously conducted annually), which is set to take place during the months of June and December each year. 


The revision also established the inclusion of non‐voting ordinary shares listed by the respective companies of the S&P SL 20 index, provided that such shares meet the relevant liquidity requirements. 


The exclusions and inclusions as announced by S&P Dow Jones Indices, effective from today (after the market close of December 15, 2017) are presented in alphabetical order in Table 1 and Table 2. 


The S&P SL 20 index includes the 20 largest companies, by total market capitalization, listed on the CSE that meet the minimum size, liquidity and financial viability thresholds. The constituents are weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization, subject to a single stock cap of 15 percent, which is employed to reduce single stock concentration. 


The S&P SL 20 index has been designed in accordance with international practices and standards. All stocks are classified according to the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS), which was co-developed by S&P Dow Jones Indices and MSCI and is widely used by market participants throughout the world.
To be eligible for inclusion, a stock must have a minimum float-adjusted market capitalization of Rs.500 million, a six-month median daily value traded of Rs.0.5 million, have been traded at least 10 days of each month for the three months prior to the rebalancing reference date and have positive net income over the 12 months prior to the rebalancing reference date. For information, including the complete methodology, please visit: www.spindices.com.


Effective from today, the stocks in the S&P Sri Lanka 20 in alphabetical order are as in Table 3.
