P&F Industries, Inc. to be included in the New Russell Microcap Index

FARMINGDALE, N.Y., June 22, 2005 - P&F Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq NM: PFIN) today announced that it is to be included in the new Russell Microcap(TM) Index when Russell Investment Group reconstitutes its family of U.S. indexes on June 24. Russell recently posted a preliminary membership list at

The Russell Microcap Index, which will be comprised of the smallest 1,000 securities in the small-cap Russell 2000O Index plus the next 1,000 companies, based on a ranking of all U.S. equities by market capitalization. This new index offers managers and other investors a barometer to compare their performance against the genuine microcap marketplace of stocks

Richard Horowitz, President and CEO of P&F, commented, "We are honored to be recognized in the new Russell Microcap index. We look forward to the broadened investor awareness that may result from our inclusion in the index."

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for both passive and active investment strategies. More than $2.5 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.

Companies slated for the Russell Microcap were ranked as of May 31 by total market capitalization and weighted based on free-float adjustment, an integral aspect of Russell index methodology. Free-float adjustment means stocks are weighted by their available market capitalization which is calculated by multiplying the primary closing price by the available shares.
