L. 104–13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for extension of a currently approved information collection. Section 837.103 of Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations, requires agencies to collect information from retirees who become employed in Government positions. Agencies need to collect timely information regarding the type and amount of annuity being received so the correct rate of pay can be determined. Agencies provide this information to OPM so a determination can be made whether the reemployed retiree’s annuity must be terminated. Approximately 3,000 reemployed retirees are asked this information annually. It takes each reemployed retiree approximately 5 minutes to provide the information for an annual estimated burden of 250 hours.

Extension: Form N–1A, SEC File No. 270–21, OMB Control No. 3235–0307. Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collections of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit these existing collections of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. Form N–1A (17 CFR 239.15A and 274.11A) is the form used by open-end management investment companies (‘‘funds’’) 1 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (‘‘Investment Company Act’’) and/or to register their securities under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) (‘‘Securities Act’’). Section 5 of the Securities Act (15 U.S.C. 77e) requires the filing of a registration statement prior to the offer of securities to the public and that the statement be effective before any securities are sold, and Section 8 of the Investment Company Act (15 U.S.C. 80a–8) requires a fund to register as an investment company. Form N–1A also permits funds to provide investors with a prospectus and a statement of additional information (‘‘SAI’’) covering essential information about the fund when it makes an initial or additional offering of its securities. Section 5(b) of the Securities Act requires that investors be provided with a prospectus containing the information required in a registration statement prior to the sale or 1 Management investment companies typically issue shares representing an undivided proportionate interest in a changing pool of securities, and include open-end and closed-end companies. See T. Lemke, G. Lins, A. Smith III, Regulation of Investment Companies, Vol. I, ch. 4, § 4.04, at 4–5 (2002). An open-end company is a management company that is offering for sale or has outstanding any redeemable securities of which it is the issuer. A closed-end company is any management company other than an open-end company. See Section 5 of the Investment Company Act (15 U.S.C. 80a–5). Open-end companies generally offer and sell new shares to the public on a continuous basis. Closed-end companies generally engage in traditional underwritten offerings of a fixed number of shares and, in most cases, do not offer their shares to the public on a continuous basis.

The form also may be used by the Commission in its regulatory review, inspection, and policy-making roles. The Commission estimates that there are 77 initial registration statements and 2,320 post-effective amendments to initial registration statements filed on Form N–1A annually and that the average number of portfolios referenced in each initial filing and post-effective amendment is 4.9. The Commission further estimates that the hour burden for preparing and filing a post-effective amendment on Form N–1A is 111 hours per portfolio. The total annual hour burden for preparing and filing posteffective amendments is 1,261,848 hours (2,320 post-effective amendments × 4.9 portfolios × 111 hours per portfolio). The estimated annual hour burden for preparing and filing initial registration statements is 313,336 hours (77 initial registration statements × 4.9 portfolios × 830.47 hours per portfolio). The total annual hour burden for Form N–1A, therefore, is estimated to be 1,575,184 hours (1,261,848 hours + 313,336 hours). The information collection requirements imposed by Form N–1A are mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept confidential. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid control number. Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Please direct your written comments to R.

It appears to the Securities and Exchange Commission that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of American Teletronics, Inc., n/k/a Shine Holdings, Inc., because it has not filed any periodic reports since the period ended September 30, 1996. The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the securities of the above-listed company. Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that trading in American Teletronics, Inc., n/k/a Shine Holdings, Inc., is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EDT on June 21, 2007, through 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 5, 2007.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION


Proposed Collection; Comment Request

Upon written request, copies available from: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of Filings and Information Services, Washington, DC 
20549.

Extension: Form N-1A, SEC File No. 270-21, OMB Control No. 3235-
0307.

    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the Securities and Exchange Commission 
(the ``Commission'') is soliciting comments on the collections of 
information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit these 
existing collections of information to the Office of Management and 
Budget (``OMB'') for extension and approval.
    Form N-1A (17 CFR 239.15A and 274.11A) is the form used by open-end 
management investment companies (``funds'') \1\ under the Investment 
Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et seq.) (``Investment Company 
Act'') and/or to register their securities under the Securities Act of 
1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.) (``Securities Act''). Section 5 of the 
Securities Act (15 U.S.C. 77e) requires the filing of a registration 
statement prior to the offer of securities to the public and that the 
statement be effective before any securities are sold, and Section 8 of 
the Investment Company Act (15 U.S.C. 80a-8) requires a fund to 
register as an investment company. Form N-1A also permits funds to 
provide investors with a prospectus and a statement of additional 
information (``SAI'') covering essential information about the fund 
when it makes an initial or additional offering of its securities. 
Section 5(b) of the Securities Act requires that investors be provided 
with a prospectus containing the information required in a registration 
statement prior to the sale or

at the time of confirmation or delivery of the securities. The form 
also may be used by the Commission in its regulatory review, 
inspection, and policy-making roles.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Management investment companies typically issue shares 
representing an undivided proportionate interest in a changing pool 
of securities, and include open-end and closed-end companies. See T. 
Lemke, G. Lins, A. Smith III, Regulation of Investment Companies, 
Vol. I, ch. 4, Sec.  4.04, at 4-5 (2002). An open-end company is a 
management company that is offering for sale or has outstanding any 
redeemable securities of which it is the issuer. A closed-end 
company is any management company other than an open-end company. 
See Section 5 of the Investment Company Act (15 U.S.C. 80a-5). Open-
end companies generally offer and sell new shares to the public on a 
continuous basis. Closed-end companies generally engage in 
traditional underwritten offerings of a fixed number of shares and, 
in most cases, do not offer their shares to the public on a 
continuous basis.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission estimates that there are 77 initial registration 
statements and 2,320 post-effective amendments to initial registration 
statements filed on Form N-1A annually and that the average number of 
portfolios referenced in each initial filing and post-effective 
amendment is 4.9. The Commission further estimates that the hour burden 
for preparing and filing a post-effective amendment on Form N-1A is 111 
hours per portfolio. The total annual hour burden for preparing and 
filing post-effective amendments is 1,261,848 hours (2,320 post-
effective amendments x 4.9 portfolios x 111 hours per portfolio). The 
estimated annual hour burden for preparing and filing initial 
registration statements is 313,336 hours (77 initial registration 
statements x 4.9 portfolios x 830.47 hours per portfolio). The total 
annual hour burden for Form N-1A, therefore, is estimated to be 
1,575,184 hours (1,261,848 hours + 313,336 hours).
    The information collection requirements imposed by Form N-1A are 
mandatory. Responses to the collection of information will not be kept 
confidential. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not 
required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid control number.
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) 
ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will 
be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 
days of this publication.
