News ReleaseDucommun Incorporated Joins the Russell 3000® Index
LOS ANGELES, California (June 30, 2008) -- Ducommun Incorporated (NYSE: DCO) is joining the broad-market Russell 3000® Index which Russell Investments reconstituted in its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indexes on June 27, 2008.

Annual reconstitution of Russell’s U.S. indexes captures the largest U.S. stocks as of the end of June, ranking them by total market capitalization. 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 value style indexes. Russell determines membership for its equity indexes primarily by objective, market-capitalization rankings and style attributes.

Joseph C. Berenato, chairman and chief executive officer of Ducommun, stated, “We are pleased to be included in the Russell 3000® Index. This action should broaden our exposure to institutional investors and recognizes the hard work and achievement of our Ducommun Team Members over the past year.”
