Blitzer (212) s.com Information Services (212) ors.com The Global Classification Standard (GICS) SM An Overview for Standard & Poor s U.S. Sector Indices G The Global Classification Standard (GICS) SM is the exclusive industry classification structure used for Standard & Poor's U.S. industry index calculations. G On December 31, 2001, Standard & Poor's discontinued the use of the its old industry classification methodology for the purpose of U.S. industry index calculations. G While the old classification system and GICS sector indices have distinct differences, they also have some significant common characteristics. G We present the structure of the GICS system and show similar statistical characteristics of the old sector indices and GICS sector indices. G Market participants who use Standard & Poor's U.S. GICS indices for historical returns may choose to use this analysis to create a continuous time series of index returns, with history that extends prior to the official GICS index history. G We show the correlation of historical returns between industry index returns of the two classification systems, and overlap of market capitalization and number of companies at the date when the old industry indices were discontinued. G The analysis presented here is illustrative and should not be construed as Standard & Poor's recommendation for mapping of the two different industries return series. Users should exercise judgment depending upon their situational requirements. Standard & Poor s

2 A GICS Overview for Standard & Poor's U.S. Indices Introduction On January 2nd, 2001, Standard & Poor s officially released GICS (Global Classification Standard) sector, industry group, industry, and sub-industry level price indices for all Standard & Poor s U.S. indices the S&P 500, the S&P MidCap 400, the S&P SmallCap 600 and the S&P SuperComposite Total return index values were also released for the GICS-level S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400, and S&P SmallCap 600 sub-indices. All sector and industry indices under Standard & Poor's old industry classification system were discontinued effective December 31st, At that time, GICS became the only industry classification system managed and maintained at Standard & Poor's for U.S. index calculation purposes. What Is GICS? GICS is an industry classification system, developed by Standard & Poor's in collaboration with Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI). GICS is currently comprised of: G 10 Sectors G 23 Groups G 59 Industries G 122 Sub-Industries A company is assigned to a single GICS sub-industry according to the definition of its principal business activity as determined by Standard & Poor's and MSCI. Revenues are a significant factor in defining principal business activity; however, earnings analysis and market perception are also important criteria for classification. GICS was developed in response to the financial community s need for one complete, consistent set of global sector and industry definitions. The GICS standard can be applied to companies globally, in both developed and developing markets, and currently comprises a universe of over 25,000 companies worldwide. See Appendix D for a table detailing the current GICS structure. GICS Classification Methodology and Maintenance A company is assigned a classification at each of the four levels of GICS; however, a company may only belong to one group at any level. The classification is generally determined by the business activity that generates a majority of the company s revenues and/or earnings. For those companies that are engaged in more than one substantially different business activity the Standard & Poor s Page 2

3 A GICS Overview for Standard & Poor's U.S. Indices company is classified where the majority of revenues and profits are derived or, if no majority, the sub-industry that best reflects the company s principal business. Companies whose business activities are dispersed across three or more sectors will be classified in Industrial Conglomerates or Multi-Sector Holdings. Standard & Poor s and MSCI must agree on the current company classification for it to be labeled as officially classified under the GICS structure. A company s industry classification is reviewed upon significant corporate events or when new information is made publicly available. Standard & Poor s and MSCI meet annually to review the overall structure of the GICS system. This will keep the structure up to date with industry trends. U.S. Sector Indices The GICS Structure Vs. S&P s Classification System For Standard & Poor's U.S. sub-indices, all GICS sector, industry group, industry, and sub-industry indices have been calculated with a common base of 100 at a start date of December 31st, In those cases when the first date of the index is subsequent to this date the index assumes a value of 100 on its start date. Standard & Poor s old classification methodology had two levels of detail economic sectors and 115 industry groups. As stated above, the GICS structure currently has four levels of detail sectors, 23 industry groups, 59 industries, and 122 sub-industries. At the sector level, transportation has been eliminated as an individual GICS sector, but is represented by a GICS industry group. In the last decade alone, the transportation sector had shrunken from 2% to ½% of the S&P 500. Under GICS, transportation related industries are included in the GICS Industrials sector. The GICS Industrials sector -- comprised largely of the old capital goods and transportation sectors -- should not be confused with the S&P Industrials Composite (the S&P 500 excluding transportation, financials, and utilities). The GICS Industrials sector is one of the 10 economic sectors that are part of this new standard. Standard & Poor's continues to calculate values for the S&P Industrials Composite ; however, this is a stand-alone index and not a part of the GICS structure. For more detail on specific differences between S&P GICS indices and S&P old industry indices refer to Appendix E. Extension Of U.S. GICS History In the summer of 2001, Standard & Poor's conducted an analysis of the S&P 500 industry index constituents and price returns history for the time period covering December 1994 through September At that time, Standard & Poor s Page 3

4 A GICS Overview for Standard & Poor's U.S. Indices Standard & Poor's concluded that index histories for 58 of the, then, 123 GICS sub-industries and the ten GICS economic sectors had high correlation and market capitalization overlap with the corresponding industry or sector under the old industry classification system. Standard & Poor's clients found this information useful, since S&P GICS index history often does not contain as much history as some of the corresponding old industry indices. Standard & Poor's has extended this analysis to cover the additional history it has since generated for the S&P 500 GICS indices now extending back to September 1989 and to include the S&P MidCap 400 and the S&P SmallCap 600 GICS sub-indices for the time periods they exist. Aligning of S&P Sector Returns with GICS Sector Returns Merging two distinct industry return series can depend on two factors. First, correlations provide a quantitative judgement on whether the two return series are distinct or not. Second, the overlap of the constituents of the two different industry indices can be used to provide subjective judgement. These two variables must be used in conjunction. Correlations Appendix A1 shows the correlation of price returns of old sector indices, old composite indices and old industry indices with related GICS indices for the S&P 500. GICS sector indices are mapped into old sector indices, while GICS sub-industry indices are mapped into old industry indices. Appendixes B1 and C1 show similar information for the S&P MidCap 400 and the S&P SmallCap 600 indices, respectively. We also show a statistical test of significance for the correlation coefficient. The test: For n observations and an observed correlation coefficient of r, t = r (n-2) (1 - r 2 ) Degrees of freedom = n-2 At a 99% degree of significance, most of our chosen pairs reject the null hypothesis of the two return series having no correlation. Overlap Of Composition Appendix A2 shows the composition of the companies in each S&P GICS index as represented by percent of market capitalization and number of Standard & Poor s Page 4

5 A GICS Overview for Standard & Poor's U.S. Indices companies in the corresponding old index, and the composition of the companies in each old index as represented by percent of market capitalization and number of companies in the corresponding GICS index, for the S&P 500 industry indices. Appendices B2 and C2 show similar information for the S&P MidCap 400 and the S&P SmallCap 600 indices, respectively. The information on the number of matching companies and market capitalization shown is as of December 31, As discussed, this is the date when the old industry indices were discontinued. This analysis is illustrative only. Users may wish to perform this analysis at multiple periods in time, depending upon their specific situations. Services clients may be able to get the old industry index composition and GICS index compositions by contacting their account representative or the client services number listed at the front of this document. Conclusion The purpose of this analysis is to give Standard & Poor's index clients additional information for potentially supplementing historic GICS indices with old indices. While indices with high correlations and high overlap of constituents are good candidates for merging of index histories; users, depending upon situational requirements, should determine specific ranges for either variable.
