Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’)1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on August 18, 2006, the New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Exchange has designated the proposed rule change as constituting a ‘‘noncontroversial’’ rule change under Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act,3 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder,4 which renders the proposal effective upon filing with the Commission. On August 21, 2006, the Exchange filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.5 The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES The NYSE proposes to amend Section 102.01A of the NYSE’s Listed Company Manual (the ‘‘Manual’’) to reduce its distribution requirements from 2,000 to 400 round lot U.S. holders for companies listing common equity securities in connection with an initial public offering (‘‘IPO’’), transfer or quotation.

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. 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 Section 102.01A of the Manual sets out minimum distribution requirements for size and volume that must be met in order for U.S. companies to list common equity securities. The Exchange proposes to amend Section 102.01A of the Manual to reduce its distribution requirements from 2,000 to 400 round lot U.S. holders for companies listing common equity securities in connection with an IPO, transfer or quotation. As amended, Section 102.01A of the Manual would continue to allow the Exchange to include all North American holders toward the 400 round lot U.S. holder threshold under Section 102.01B when considering a listing application from a company organized under the laws of Canada, Mexico or the United States. In addition, all other financial standards included in the distribution requirements will remain the same. Generally speaking, U.S. companies that are listing equity securities in connection with an IPO, transfer or quotation must demonstrate that a security to be listed is held by a minimum of 2,000 round lot U.S. holders.6 Under Section 102.01B, when considering a listing application from a company organized under the laws of Canada, Mexico or the United States, the Exchange will include all North American holders and North American trading volume in applying the minimum holder threshold.7 All U.S. companies listing common equity securities must also demonstrate that 6 A quotation is the listing of a foreign private issuer without a concurrent offering. 7 The Exchange currently has a pilot program in effect that establishes a 400 round lot holder requirement for companies listing following emergence from bankruptcy or which are affiliated with listed companies. See Exchange Act Release No. 52887 (December 5, 2005), 70 FR 73501 (December 12, 2005) (SR–NYSE–2005–82). The Exchange has filed a proposed rule change to extend this pilot (SR–NYSE–2006–62). PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51259 there are at least 1,100,000 publicly held shares outstanding at the time of listing. According to the Exchange, the current 2,000 round lot U.S. holder threshold was established several decades ago when the composition of the investor population was such that the Exchange anticipated that specialists might be called upon to play more of a role in providing necessary liquidity in its stocks. In the NYSE’s view, the Exchange’s current round lot holder requirement helped facilitate an environment in which there would be healthy liquidity in an issuer’s stock independent of the specialist. Because both retail and institutional participation in the marketplace have grown tremendously over the last few decades, the Exchange now believes that it is less necessary to require such a large number of round lot holders. The Exchange notes that other U.S. markets currently require fewer round lot holders than the Exchange currently does, and that the Exchange has not had any negative experience with its current, albeit limited, pilot program.8 The Exchange notes that the reduced requirement meets the requirements set forth in Rule 3a51–1 under the Exchange Act.9 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the basis under the Act for this proposed rule change, as amended, is the requirement under Section 6(b)(5) 10 that an exchange have rules that are designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, 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. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change, as amended, will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. 8 See, e.g., Nasdaq Stock Market LLC Marketplace Rule 4420 (requiring 400 round lot holders). 9 17 CFR 240.3a51–1. 10 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on the proposed rule change, as amended. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the proposed rule change, as amended: (i) Does not significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) does not impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) does not become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 11 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.12 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 13 normally does not become operative prior to thirty days after the date of filing. NYSE requests that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay, as specified in Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii), and designate the proposed rule change to become operative immediately. The Commission hereby grants the request. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because the extension will allow NYSE to have substantially similar distribution requirements to other Exchanges and does not unduly burden the marketplace.14 For these reasons, the Commission designates the proposed rule change, as amended, as effective and operative immediately. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, as amended, the Commission may summarily abrogate such proposed rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for 11 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). Pursuant to Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) under the Act, the Exchange is required to give the Commission written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and text of 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 requested that the Commission waive the 5-day pre-filing notice requirement. The Commission has determined to waive this requirement. 13 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 14 For purposes only of waiving the operative delay for this proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The NYSE proposes to amend Section 102.01A of the NYSE's Listed 
Company Manual (the ``Manual'') to reduce its distribution requirements 
from 2,000 to 400 round lot U.S. holders for companies listing common 
equity securities in connection with an initial public offering 
(``IPO''), transfer or quotation. The text of the proposed rule change 
is available on the NYSE's Web site (http://www.nyse.com), at the 
NYSE's Office of the Secretary, 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, the Exchange included statements 
concerning the purpose of, and basis for, 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
    Section 102.01A of the Manual sets out minimum distribution 
requirements for size and volume that must be met in order for U.S. 
companies to list common equity securities. The Exchange proposes to 
amend Section 102.01A of the Manual to reduce its distribution 
requirements from 2,000 to 400 round lot U.S. holders for companies 
listing common equity securities in connection with an IPO, transfer or 
quotation. As amended, Section 102.01A of the Manual would continue to 
allow the Exchange to include all North American holders toward the 400 
round lot U.S. holder threshold under Section 102.01B when considering 
a listing application from a company organized under the laws of 
Canada, Mexico or the United States. In addition, all other financial 
standards included in the distribution requirements will remain the 
same.
    Generally speaking, U.S. companies that are listing equity 
securities in connection with an IPO, transfer or quotation must 
demonstrate that a security to be listed is held by a minimum of 2,000 
round lot U.S. holders.\6\ Under Section 102.01B, when considering a 
listing application from a company organized under the laws of Canada, 
Mexico or the United States, the Exchange will include all North 
American holders and North American trading volume in applying the 
minimum holder threshold.\7\ All U.S. companies listing common equity 
securities must also demonstrate that there are at least 1,100,000 
publicly held shares outstanding at the time of listing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ A quotation is the listing of a foreign private issuer 
without a concurrent offering.
    \7\ The Exchange currently has a pilot program in effect that 
establishes a 400 round lot holder requirement for companies listing 
following emergence from bankruptcy or which are affiliated with 
listed companies. See Exchange Act Release No. 52887 (December 5, 
2005), 70 FR 73501 (December 12, 2005) (SR-NYSE-2005-82). The 
Exchange has filed a proposed rule change to extend this pilot (SR-
NYSE-2006-62).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to the Exchange, the current 2,000 round lot U.S. holder 
threshold was established several decades ago when the composition of 
the investor population was such that the Exchange anticipated that 
specialists might be called upon to play more of a role in providing 
necessary liquidity in its stocks. In the NYSE's view, the Exchange's 
current round lot holder requirement helped facilitate an environment 
in which there would be healthy liquidity in an issuer's stock 
independent of the specialist. Because both retail and institutional 
participation in the marketplace have grown tremendously over the last 
few decades, the Exchange now believes that it is less necessary to 
require such a large number of round lot holders. The Exchange notes 
that other U.S. markets currently require fewer round lot holders than 
the Exchange currently does, and that the Exchange has not had any 
negative experience with its current, albeit limited, pilot program.\8\ 
The Exchange notes that the reduced requirement meets the requirements 
set forth in Rule 3a51-1 under the Exchange Act.\9\

(requiring 400 round lot holders).
    \9\ 17 CFR 240.3a51-1.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the basis under the Act for this 
proposed rule change, as amended, is the requirement under Section 
6(b)(5) \10\ that an exchange have rules that are designed to promote 
just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and 
coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, 
processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions 
in securities, 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.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change, as 
amended, will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or 
appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

[[Page 51260]]

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

    The Exchange has neither solicited nor received written comments on 
the proposed rule change, as amended.

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

    Because the proposed rule change, as amended: (i) Does not 
significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) does not impose any significant burden on competition; 
and (iii) does not become operative for 30 days after the date of the 
filing, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, 
the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \11\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) thereunder.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \12\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). Pursuant to Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) 
under the Act, the Exchange is required to give the Commission 
written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along 
with a brief description and text of 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 requested that the Commission waive the 5-day pre-
filing notice requirement. The Commission has determined to waive 
this requirement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \13\ normally 
does not become operative prior to thirty days after the date of 
filing. NYSE requests that the Commission waive the 30-day operative 
delay, as specified in Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii), and designate the 
proposed rule change to become operative immediately. The Commission 
hereby grants the request. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-
day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and 
the public interest because the extension will allow NYSE to have 
substantially similar distribution requirements to other Exchanges and 
does not unduly burden the marketplace.\14\ For these reasons, the 
Commission designates the proposed rule change, as amended, as 
effective and operative immediately.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
    \14\ For purposes only of waiving the operative delay for this 
proposal, the Commission has 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, as amended, the Commission may summarily abrogate such proposed 
rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is 
necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of 
investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.\15\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ For purposes of calculating the 60-day period within which 
the Commission may summarily abrogate the proposed rule change, as 
amended, under Section 19(b)(3)(C) of the Act, the Commission 
considers the period to commence on August 21, 2006, the date on 
which the Exchange submitted Amendment No. 1. See 15 U.S.C. 
78s(b)(3)(C).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
