Schaffhausen, Switzerland/December 6, 2012/Business Wire - Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced that it will become a component in the S&P 500 index after the close of trading on Tuesday, December 11.

"The S&P 500 index is widely recognized as a bellwether of the American equities market and we are honored to be listed among some of the most recognizable and enduring brands in the world," said Dr. Min Kao, chairman and CEO of Garmin Ltd. "This is tremendous recognition for our company and our commitment to long-term, sustainable growth. We'd like to thank our associates for helping us achieve this significant milestone."

The S&P 500 is an index of 500 large-cap companies from leading industries that is widely used as a benchmark for investors and a gauge of the overall performance of the U.S. stock market. The company will be added to the S&P 500 GICS (Global Industry Classification Standard) Consumer Electronics Sub-Industry index.
