Background

    Section 17A(c)(4)(B) of the Act provides that if the Commission 
finds that any transfer agent registered with the Commission is no 
longer in existence or has ceased to do business as a transfer agent, 
the Commission shall by order cancel that transfer agent's 
registration. On October 26, 2006, the Commission published notice of 
its intention to cancel the registration of certain transfer agents 
whom it believed were no longer in existence or had ceased to do 
business as transfer agents.
    In the notice the Commission identified 45 such transfer agents and 
stated that at any time after November 27, 2006, which was 30 days 
after the notice was published in the Federal Register, the Commission 
intended to issue an order canceling the registrations of any or all of 
the identified transfer agents. One of the identified transfer agents 
contacted the Commission to object to the cancellation of its 
registration because it states that it has not ceased to do business as 
a transfer agent. The Commission has decided not to cancel the 
registration of this transfer agent at this time in order to conduct 
further inquiry. One other transfer agent contacted the Commission 
regarding the cancellation of its registration but did not object after 
it was informed that it had more than one registration number and that 
the Commission intended to cancel only its inactive registration 
number. None of the remaining 43 identified transfer agents contacted 
the Commission to object to the cancellation of their registrations.
    Accordingly, the Commission is cancelling the registration of each 
of the 44 transfer agents identified in the Appendix attached to this 
Order.

Order

the transfer agents whose name appears in the attached Appendix either
