NIN or ISIN – share national or international identification number.


Issuer – short name of a share issuer.


Fi – a parameter, which is a product of the free floating shares as of October 1, 2014, the price of the last deal registered on KASE on January 14, 2015, and Ri ratio, which restricts the portion of each share influence on to the index value. It is expressed in USD million. After the decision of the Committee on Indices and Securities Valuation is effective, i.e. as of beginning of February 1, 2015, Fi and Ri values will become somewhat different, because the Ri and Fi values will be adjusted in accordance with current share prices and potential change in the number of free floating shares in the List.


Ri – restrictive factor is a parameter, which limits the portion of share influence on the index value down to 0.15 (15 %), calculation of which is regulated by the Methodology.


Portion is a portion of aggregate market cost of a share in the aggregate market value of all shares listed on the KASE Index representative list. It is expressed in percents.


The Methodology is available on KASE website at
