Purpose Phlx is planning to relocate from its current location at 1900 Market Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to a new location at FMC Tower, 2929 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The relocation is currently scheduled to occur in April 2017. The purpose of this rule change is to amend the Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement of NASDAQ PHLX LLC as well as Rule 60, entitled ‘‘Sanctions for Breach of Regulations’’ to amend the addresses referenced therein for Phlx. In addition, the Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement lists the address of Phlx’s shareholder, Nasdaq, Inc. The Exchange proposes to amend that address as well. The description for each change is below. Change to 1900 Market Street Address As noted above, Phlx will relocate in April 2017 to a new address at FMC Tower, 2929 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement and Rule 60 currently contain references to Phlx’s current address at 1900 Market Street. The Exchange proposes to amend the Phlx address as of April 1, 2017 to the new address at FMC Tower, 2929 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Change to Nasdaq, Inc. Address Nasdaq, Inc., the sole shareholder of Phlx, is currently listed in the Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement with an address of 1900 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At this time the Exchange proposes to list the address of its shareholder at One Liberty Plaza, New York, NY 10006. This address is the headquarters of Nasdaq, Inc. The Exchange proposes that the Phlx address rule change will become operative on April 1, 2017. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,3 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,4 38 17 1 15 PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3 15 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).

It is consistent with the Act to maintain accurate information in its Rulebook as to the address of the Exchange. The shareholder information in the Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement is being amended to more accurately reflect the address of the shareholder. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed rule changes will accurately reflect the addresses of Phlx and its shareholder and will not impose an undue burden on competition. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others No written comments were either solicited or received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 5 and subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b–4 thereunder.6 A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6) under the Act 7 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing.

The Exchange has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest as it will allow the Exchange to update the address for Phlx and its sole shareholder, Nasdaq, Inc., as of April 1, 2017 to coincide with the relocation plans. Accordingly, the Commission hereby waives the operative delay and designates the proposal operative upon filing.9 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is: (i) Necessary or appropriate in the public interest; (ii) for the protection of investors; or (iii) otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such 
statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    Phlx is planning to relocate from its current location at 1900 
Market Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to a new location at FMC 
Tower, 2929 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The relocation 
is currently scheduled to occur in April 2017.
    The purpose of this rule change is to amend the Second Amended 
Limited Liability Company Agreement of NASDAQ PHLX LLC as well as Rule 
60, entitled ``Sanctions for Breach of Regulations'' to amend the 
addresses referenced therein for Phlx. In addition, the Second Amended 
Limited Liability Company Agreement lists the address of Phlx's 
shareholder, Nasdaq, Inc. The Exchange proposes to amend that address 
as well. The description for each change is below.
Change to 1900 Market Street Address
    As noted above, Phlx will relocate in April 2017 to a new address 
at FMC Tower, 2929 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The 
Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement and Rule 60 
currently contain references to Phlx's current address at 1900 Market 
Street. The Exchange proposes to amend the Phlx address as of April 1, 
2017 to the new address at FMC Tower, 2929 Walnut Street in 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Change to Nasdaq, Inc. Address
    Nasdaq, Inc., the sole shareholder of Phlx, is currently listed in 
the Second Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement with an address 
of 1900 Market Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. At this time the 
Exchange proposes to list the address of its shareholder at One Liberty 
Plaza, New York, NY 10006. This address is the headquarters of Nasdaq, 
Inc.
    The Exchange proposes that the Phlx address rule change will become 
operative on April 1, 2017.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 
6(b) of the Act,\3\ in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act,\4\

[[Page 14393]]

in particular, in that it is designed to promote just and equitable 
principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism 
of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general 
to protect investors and the public interest, by amending its Second 
Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement and Rule 60 to properly 
reflect the addresses of Phlx and its shareholder. It is consistent 
with the Act to maintain accurate information in its Rulebook as to the 
address of the Exchange. The shareholder information in the Second 
Amended Limited Liability Company Agreement is being amended to more 
accurately reflect the address of the shareholder.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed rule changes will 
accurately reflect the addresses of Phlx and its shareholder and will 
not impose an undue burden on competition.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    No written comments were either solicited or received.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or 
such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act \5\ and 
subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b-4 thereunder.\6\

    \5\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii).
    \6\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission 
written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change at 
least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed 
rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. 
The Exchange has satisfied this requirement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b-4(f)(6) under the 
Act \7\ normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date 
of its filing. However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \8\ permits the 
Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent 
with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange 
has asked the Commission to waive the 30-day operative delay so that 
the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The 
Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest as 
it will allow the Exchange to update the address for Phlx and its sole 
shareholder, Nasdaq, Inc., as of April 1, 2017 to coincide with the 
relocation plans. Accordingly, the Commission hereby waives the 
operative delay and designates the proposal operative upon filing.\9\

    \9\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the 
Commission has also considered the proposed rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is: (i) 
Necessary or appropriate in the public interest; (ii) for the 
protection of investors; or (iii) otherwise in furtherance of the 
purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the 
Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the 
proposed rule should be approved or disapproved.

IV. Solicitation of Comments

arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule 
change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
