Purpose Pursuant to Section 107A of the Amex Company Guide, the Exchange may approve for listing and trading securities that cannot be readily categorized under the listing criteria for common and preferred securities, bonds, debentures, or warrants.3 In February 2005, the Commission approved the Exchange’s proposal to add Section 107D to the Amex Company Guide for the purpose of adopting generic listing standards pursuant to Rule 19b–4(e) 4 in connection with Index-Linked Securities.5 The Exchange states that Section 107D of the Amex Company Guide currently sets forth eleven (11) criteria that the issue and the issuer must meet in order to list and trade Index-Linked Securities at the Exchange.6 One of the criteria the Exchange considers for the listing and trading of Index-Linked Securities pursuant to 107D is that the term of the issue must be a minimum term of one (1) year but not greater than (10) years. The Exchange currently proposes to amend Section 107D(b) to extend the duration of the term of the issue from ten (10) years to thirty (30) years. The Exchange believes this amendment to Section 107D is appropriate due to increased demand from issuers to list and trade IndexLinked Securities that are greater than ten (10) years in duration.
