Capstone Turbine Corporation is Added to the Russell 3000(R) Index

July 5, 2006

CHATSWORTH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 5, 2006–Capstone Turbine Corporation® (www.microturbine.com; Nasdaq: CPSTNews) announced today that it has been added to the Russell 3000® Index as of June 30, 2006.

Membership in the Russell 3000, which remains in place for one year, means automatic inclusion in the large-cap Russell 1000® Index or small-cap Russell 2000® Index as well as the appropriate growth and style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market capitalization rankings and style attributes.”We are pleased to be included as part of the Russell 3000®,” said John Tucker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Capstone Turbine Corporation. “Our leadership in the microturbine industry and our most recent achievements have earned us a place on this prestigious index. This important accomplishment is another key milestone for Capstone.”

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. An industry-leading $3.8 trillion in assets currently are benchmarked to them. Investment managers who oversee these funds purchase shares of member stocks according to that company’s weighting in the particular index.

Annual reconstitution of Russell indexes captures the 3,000 largest U.S. stocks as of the end of May, ranking them by total market capitalization to create the Russell 3000. The largest 1,000 companies in the ranking comprise the Russell 1000 while the remaining 2,000 companies become the widely used Russell 2000. These investment tools originated from Russell’s multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the company saw the need for a more objective, market-driven set of benchmarks in order to evaluate outside investment managers.
