Pursuant to section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:46 Jul 12, 2006 Jkt 208001 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on March 23, 2006, the American Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘Amex’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by Amex. On June 15, 2006, Amex filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.3 On June 27, 2006, Amex filed Amendment No. 2 to the proposed rule change.4 The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change, as amended, from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change Amex proposes to amend Amex Rule 353 to limit members and member organizations from allocating their seats to interim members on the Floor of the Exchange for a maximum of fifteen aggregate days that may be used consecutively or non-consecutively for a one-year period beginning on the date of approval as an interim member (‘‘approval date’’). In addition, the Exchange is proposing revisions to the Amex Constitution and the Amex Fee Schedule to correspond with the changes to Amex Rule 353. The text of the proposed rule change is available on Amex’s Web site at https://www.amex.com, at Amex’s principal office, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, Amex 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. Amex has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 Amendment No. 1 replaced the original filing in its entirety. 4 Amendment No. 2 clarifies that an interim member may be designated or redesignated by a member or member organization as an interim member after it has exhausted the fifteen day allocation even if this occurs prior to the end of the one-year period. Amendment No. 2 also makes technical corrections to the purpose section and the rule text in Exhibit 5. PO 00000 1 15 2 17 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose An interim member is an individual, pre-qualified by the Exchange, who is designated by a member or member organization to temporarily use the membership for a specified period of time when the member is absent from the Trading Floor.5 Currently, Amex Rule 353 permits unfettered temporary allocation of a membership to an interim member so long as the duration is no less than one day and no more than one year. The proposed amendment to Amex Rule 353 significantly reduces the maximum number of days an interim member can receive such designation. The new maximum would be reduced to fifteen days that may be used by each interim member consecutively or nonconsecutively for a one-year period beginning on the approval date. If an interim member has exhausted the fifteen day period, even if this occurs prior to end of the one-year period, the member or member organization may regain interim membership status by designating another interim member, or redesignating the same interim member to the seat by filing documents required by the Membership Services Department and paying the maintenance fee in accordance with Article VII, Section 1(g) of the Amex Constitution. The Exchange believes that allowing unlimited allocation to interim members lessens the value of memberships by increasing the number of unleased seats. By permitting the designation of interim members, the Exchange is essentially permitting individuals who do not own or lease seats to operate as members. This circumvention of seat leasing and ownership may artificially lessen the value of a membership by decreasing its demand. However, the Exchange also believes that the Interim Member program has served a useful function on the Floor. Specifically, it provides members with protection should illnesses or emergencies arise and also provides coverage when vacation is taken. The Exchange believes that the proposed amendment to Amex Rule 353 effectively balances concerns over having adequate emergency coverage on 5 Article IV, Section 3(e) of the Amex Constitution explicitly states that the designation of an interim member is ‘‘subject to and in accordance with such rules as may be adopted from time to time by the Board of Governors.’’ Amex Rule 353 more specifically sets forth the requirements, rights and limitations of interim members.
