Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1.

In connection with the implementation of the pilot, the Exchange proposes to decrease the amount of the payment for order flow fees in the options that are subject to the pilot because the Exchange believes that, with narrower minimum increments and therefore possibly narrower spreads, specialists, Directed ROTs, and ROTs may face tighter profit margins if coupled with the current $0.70 (or $0.75 for QQQQ) payment for order flow fee. By reducing the payment for order flow fees in the options that are subject to the pilot, the Exchange believes that members and member organizations should continue to display strong liquid markets, without being financially burdened with the higher payment for order flow fees that are currently in effect. The purpose of establishing different effective dates is to implement the proposed payment for order flow fees on the date on which each specified option is rolled out in connection with the pilot.

Accordingly, the proposal will take effect upon filing with the Commission. At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule change the Commission may summarily abrogate such 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.18 IV.

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. PHLX 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
    Currently, the Exchange assesses a payment for order flow fee of 
$0.70 per contract for equity options other than options on QQQQ. 
Options on QQQQ are assessed $0.75 per contract. Specialists,\7\ 
Directed Registered Options Traders (``Directed ROTs'') and Registered 
Options Traders (``ROTs'') are assessed a payment for order flow fee 
when a customer order is directed to a specialist unit or Directed ROT 
who participates in the Exchange's payment for order flow program.\8\ 
Trades resulting from either Directed\9\ or non-

[[Page 8052]]

Directed Orders that are delivered electronically over AUTOM\10\ and 
executed on the Exchange are assessed a payment for order flow fee, 
while non-electronically-delivered orders (i.e., represented by a floor 
broker) are not assessed a payment for order flow fee.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ The Exchange uses the terms ``specialist'' and ``specialist 
unit'' interchangeably herein.
    \8\ Therefore, the payment for order flow fee is assessed, in 
effect, on equity option transactions between a customer and a ROT, 
a customer and a Directed ROT, or a customer and a specialist when a 
customer order is directed to a specialist or Directed ROT who 
participates in the Exchange's payment for order flow program.
    \9\ The term ``Directed Order'' means any customer order to buy 
or sell, which has been directed to a particular specialist, Remote 
Streaming Quote Trader or Streaming Quote Trader by an Order Flow 
Provider.
    \10\ AUTOM is the Exchange's electronic order delivery, routing, 
execution and reporting system, which provides for the automatic 
entry and routing of equity option and index option orders to the 
Exchange trading floor. See Exchange Rules 1014(b)(ii) and 1080.
    \11\ Electronically-delivered orders do not include orders 
delivered through the Floor Broker Management System pursuant to 
Exchange Rule 1063.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Separately, the Exchange intends to implement a six-month pilot 
period beginning on January 26, 2007 (the ``pilot''), during which 
certain options (the options set forth in this proposal) would be 
quoted and traded on the Exchange in minimum increments of $0.01 for 
all series in such options with a price of less than $3.00, and in 
minimum increments of $0.05 for all series in such options with a price 
of $3.00 or higher, except that options overlying the QQQQ would be 
quoted and traded in minimum increments of $0.01 for all series 
regardless of the price.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 54886 (December 6, 
2006), 71 FR 74979 (December13, 2006) (SR-Phlx-2006-74).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The purpose of this proposal is to assess payment for order flow 
fees in a manner that the Exchange believes is more appropriate in 
light of the pilot. In connection with the implementation of the pilot, 
the Exchange proposes to decrease the amount of the payment for order 
flow fees in the options that are subject to the pilot because the 
Exchange believes that, with narrower minimum increments and therefore 
possibly narrower spreads, specialists, Directed ROTs, and ROTs may 
face tighter profit margins if coupled with the current $0.70 (or $0.75 
for QQQQ) payment for order flow fee. By reducing the payment for order 
flow fees in the options that are subject to the pilot, the Exchange 
believes that members and member organizations should continue to 
display strong liquid markets, without being financially burdened with 
the higher payment for order flow fees that are currently in effect.
    The purpose of establishing different effective dates is to 
implement the proposed payment for order flow fees on the date on which 
each specified option is rolled out in connection with the pilot. The 
proposed fees would remain in effect until May 27, 2007.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See supra, note 6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change to amend its 
schedule of fees is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act \14\ in 
general, and Section 6(b)(4) of the Act \15\ in particular, in that it 
is an equitable allocation of reasonable fees and other charges among 
exchange members.

    \15\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(4).

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.

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

    No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the 
proposed rule change.

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

    The foregoing proposed rule change has been designated as a fee 
change pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(ii) of the Act \16\ and Rule 
19b-4(f)(2) \17\ thereunder, because it establishes or changes a due, 
fee, or other charge imposed by the Exchange. Accordingly, the proposal 
will take effect upon filing with the Commission. At any time within 60 
days of the filing of such proposed rule change the Commission may 
summarily abrogate such 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.\18\
