II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Changes In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule changes and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule changes. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization 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 Changes 1. Purpose a. NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e) The Exchange proposes to make certain minor technical amendments to 6 See ISG Notice to Members 2007–01 (March 15, 2007), and American Stock Exchange Notice REG 2007–19 (March 16, 2007). 7 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 34– 50103 (July 28, 2004), 69 FR 48008 (August 6, 2004).

PO 00000 Frm 00114 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32389 NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e), Periodic Reports, as such rule makes references to rules under the Act that are no longer in effect. Specifically, Rule 4.5(e) makes reference to ‘‘short’’ sales, as defined by Rule 3b–3 under the Act.11 In light of the adoption of Regulation SHO, the Exchange shall make the appropriate change to its rule text to remove references to Rule 3b–3 under the Act and correctly identify Rule 200(a) under the Act 12 where such definition of short sales may be found. Further, Rule 4.5(e) exempts ETP Holders from reporting short positions if such a position resulted from a sale specified in clause (9) of paragraph (e) of Rule 10a–1 under the Act. Since clause (9) has been removed from Rule 10a–1(e) under the Act, the exemption to ETP Holders is no longer applicable, and shall be removed as a reference with NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e). Additionally, the Exchange proposes to increase the frequency of periodic reports that ETP Holders must submit to the Exchange concerning short positions in securities, as prescribed by NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e), from monthly to twice per month. This increase in the frequency of such reports is consistent with similar changes recently approved by the Commission for the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. (‘‘NASD’’), the New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’), and the American Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘Amex’’).13 The Exchange shall implement the new periodic reporting requirements for short positions of ETP Holders in September 2007 to be consistent with the increased reporting requirements of other self-regulatory organizations.14 b. NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f) The Exchange proposes to make certain minor technical amendments to NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f), Periodic Reports, as such rule makes references to rules under the Act that are no longer in effect. Specifically, Rule 4.5(f) makes reference to ‘‘short’’ sales, as defined by Rule 3b–3 under the Act.15 In light of the adoption of Regulation SHO by the Commission, the Exchange shall make the appropriate change to its rule text to remove references to Rule 3b–3 under the Act and correctly identify Rule 11 See 17 CFR 240.3b–3. 17 CFR 240.200(a). 13 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 34– 55406 (March 6, 2007), 72 FR 11071 (March 12, 2007) (SR–NASD–2006–131; SR–NYSE–2006–111; SR–Amex–2007–05). 14 See supra note 6. 15 See 17 CFR 240.3b–3. 12 See E:\FR\FM\12JNN1.SGM 12JNN1 32390 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 112 / Tuesday, June 12, 2007 / Notices 200(a) under the Act 16 where such definition of short sales may be found. Further, Rule 4.5(f) exempts OTP Holders and OTP Firms from reporting short positions if such a position resulted from a sale specified in clause (9) of paragraph (e) of Rule 10a–1 under the Act. Since clause (9) has been removed from Rule 10a–1(e) under the Act, the exemption to OTP Holders and OTP Firms is no longer applicable, and shall be removed as a reference with NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f). Additionally, the Exchange proposes to increase the frequency of periodic reports that OTP Holders and OTP Firms must submit to the Exchange concerning short positions in securities, as prescribed by NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f), from monthly to twice per month. This increase in the frequency of such reports is consistent with similar changes recently approved by the Commission for the NASD, NYSE, and the Amex.17 The Exchange shall implement the new periodic reporting requirements for short positions of OTP Holders and OTP Firms in September 2007 to be consistent with the increased reporting requirements of other self-regulatory organizations.18 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule changes are consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act 19 in general and further the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) 20 in particular in that they are designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities, and to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition cprice-sewell on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule changes will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. 16 See 17 CFR 240.200(a).

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Changes Received From Members, Participants or Others Written comments on the proposed rule changes were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Changes and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule changes do not (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest, (ii) impose any significant burden on competition, or (iii) become operative within 30 days after the date of the filing, they have become effective upon filing pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 21 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) 22 thereunder. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule changes, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule changes 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.23 IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule changes are consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Electronic Comments • Use the Commission’s Internet comment form (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml); or • Send an e-mail to rulecomments@sec.gov.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Changes

    In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization 
included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the 
proposed rule changes and discussed any comments it received on the 
proposed rule changes. The text of these statements may be examined at 
the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization 
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 Changes

1. Purpose

a. NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e)

    The Exchange proposes to make certain minor technical amendments to 
NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e), Periodic Reports, as such rule makes 
references to rules under the Act that are no longer in effect. 
Specifically, Rule 4.5(e) makes reference to ``short'' sales, as 
defined by Rule 3b-3 under the Act.\11\ In light of the adoption of 
Regulation SHO, the Exchange shall make the appropriate change to its 
rule text to remove references to Rule 3b-3 under the Act and correctly 
identify Rule 200(a) under the Act \12\ where such definition of short 
sales may be found. Further, Rule 4.5(e) exempts ETP Holders from 
reporting short positions if such a position resulted from a sale 
specified in clause (9) of paragraph (e) of Rule 10a-1 under the Act. 
Since clause (9) has been removed from Rule 10a-1(e) under the Act, the 
exemption to ETP Holders is no longer applicable, and shall be removed 
as a reference with NYSE Arca Equities Rule 4.5(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See 17 CFR 240.3b-3.
    \12\ See 17 CFR 240.200(a).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, the Exchange proposes to increase the frequency of 
periodic reports that ETP Holders must submit to the Exchange 
concerning short positions in securities, as prescribed by NYSE Arca 
Equities Rule 4.5(e), from monthly to twice per month. This increase in 
the frequency of such reports is consistent with similar changes 
recently approved by the Commission for the National Association of 
Securities Dealers, Inc. (``NASD''), the New York Stock Exchange LLC 
(``NYSE''), and the American Stock Exchange LLC (``Amex'').\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 34-55406 (March 6, 
2007), 72 FR 11071 (March 12, 2007) (SR-NASD-2006-131; SR-NYSE-2006-
111; SR-Amex-2007-05).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange shall implement the new periodic reporting 
requirements for short positions of ETP Holders in September 2007 to be 
consistent with the increased reporting requirements of other self-
regulatory organizations.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See supra note 6.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

b. NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f)

    The Exchange proposes to make certain minor technical amendments to 
NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f), Periodic Reports, as such rule makes references 
to rules under the Act that are no longer in effect. Specifically, Rule 
4.5(f) makes reference to ``short'' sales, as defined by Rule 3b-3 
under the Act.\15\ In light of the adoption of Regulation SHO by the 
Commission, the Exchange shall make the appropriate change to its rule 
text to remove references to Rule 3b-3 under the Act and correctly 
identify Rule

[[Page 32390]]

200(a) under the Act \16\ where such definition of short sales may be 
found. Further, Rule 4.5(f) exempts OTP Holders and OTP Firms from 
reporting short positions if such a position resulted from a sale 
specified in clause (9) of paragraph (e) of Rule 10a-1 under the Act. 
Since clause (9) has been removed from Rule 10a-1(e) under the Act, the 
exemption to OTP Holders and OTP Firms is no longer applicable, and 
shall be removed as a reference with NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See 17 CFR 240.3b-3.
    \16\ See 17 CFR 240.200(a).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Additionally, the Exchange proposes to increase the frequency of 
periodic reports that OTP Holders and OTP Firms must submit to the 
Exchange concerning short positions in securities, as prescribed by 
NYSE Arca Rule 4.5(f), from monthly to twice per month. This increase 
in the frequency of such reports is consistent with similar changes 
recently approved by the Commission for the NASD, NYSE, and the 
Amex.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 34-55406 (March 6, 
2007), 72 FR 11071 (March 12, 2007) (SR-NASD-2006-131; SR-NYSE-2006-
111; SR-Amex-2007-05).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange shall implement the new periodic reporting 
requirements for short positions of OTP Holders and OTP Firms in 
September 2007 to be consistent with the increased reporting 
requirements of other self-regulatory organizations.\18\
2. Statutory Basis
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See supra note 10.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange believes the proposed rule changes are consistent with 
Section 6(b) of the Act \19\ in general and further the objectives of 
Section 6(b)(5) \20\ in particular in that they are designed to prevent 
fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and 
equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination 
with persons engaged in facilitating transactions in securities, and to 
remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open 
market and a national market system.

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

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

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

    Written comments on the proposed rule changes were neither 
solicited nor received.

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

    Because the foregoing proposed rule changes do not (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest, (ii) impose any significant burden on competition, or (iii) 
become operative within 30 days after the date of the filing, they have 
become effective upon filing pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 
\21\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \22\ thereunder.

    \22\ 17 CFR 19b-4(f)(6).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
changes, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule changes 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.\23\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \23\ See 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(C).
