NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2013

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Dow Jones Indices will make the
following changes to the S&P 500, S&P MidCap 400 and S&P SmallCap 600 indices:

  o Allegion plc (NYSE: ALLEwi) will replace J. C. Penney Company Inc. (NYSE:
    JCP) in the S&P 500, J. C. Penney will replace Aeropostale Inc. (NYSE:
    ARO) in the S&P MidCap 400, and Aeropostale will replace Corinthian
    Colleges Inc. (NASD: COCO) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of
    trading on Friday, November 29. S&P 500 constituent Ingersoll-Rand plc
    (NYSE: IR) is spinning off Allegion to shareholders in a transaction
    expected to be effective after the close of trading on that date.
    Ingersoll-Rand will remain in the S&P 500 after the spin-off. J. C.
    Penney's and Aeropostale's market capitalizations are now more
    representative of the mid cap market and small cap market spaces
    respectively. Corinthian Colleges' low stock price and market
    capitalization make it no longer suitable for the S&P SmallCap 600.

    SYMM) in the S&P SmallCap 600 after the close of trading on Tuesday,

    acquiring Symmetricom in a deal expected to be completed soon pending
    final approvals.
