On May 1, 2007, the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (‘‘CBOE’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposal to amend Rule 24.9, Terms of Index Options, to codify the pre-existing methodology used for determining the day on which the exercise settlement value of CBOE Volatility Index options and CBOE Increased-Value Volatility Index options (collectively,’’Volatility Index options’’) is calculated and to supplement the manner for determining the day on which the exercise settlement value of Volatility Index options is calculated in the event of an Exchange holiday. The Exchange submitted Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change on June 7, 2007. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on July 16, 2007.3 The Commission received no comments on the proposal. This order approves the proposed rule change as modified by Amendment No. 1. In this proposal, CBOE proposed to amend Rule 24.9, Terms of Index Options, to codify the pre-existing methodology used for determining the day on which the exercise settlement value of Volatility Index options is calculated.4 This day is also the expiration date for Volatility Index options and the business day 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

The Exchange also proposed to supplement the manner for determining the day on which the exercise settlement value of Volatility Index options is calculated in the event of an Exchange holiday. In general, each Volatility Index is calculated using the quotes of certain index option series (e.g., S&P 500 Index (‘‘SPX’’) options) to derive a measure of volatility of the U.S. equity market. Under CBOE’s current methodology, the day on which the exercise settlement value of a Volatility Index option is calculated and the expiration date of a Volatility Index option is the Wednesday that is thirty days prior to the third Friday of the calendar month immediately following the expiring month of the Volatility Index option.5 Additionally, the Tuesday immediately before that Wednesday is the last trading day for Volatility Index options. According to the CBOE, this methodology was chosen because it provides consistency by ensuring that Volatility Index options expire exactly thirty days before the expiration date of the options that are used to calculate the Volatility Indexes and reflects CBOE’s belief that the settlement process works best if underlying option series with a single expiration month are used to calculate a Volatility Index. According to CBOE, if underlying options series in two expiration months are used, the number of options series used in the settlement process is markedly increased and the settlement process becomes more complex and cumbersome. Consequently, in this filing the Exchange proposed to amend the existing text of Rule 24.9, relating to the current methodology, to codify its pre-existing practice. The Exchange further proposed to supplement the current methodology by providing a framework for determining the day on which the exercise settlement value for Volatility Index options will be calculated and the expiration date for Volatility Index options when the Exchange is closed on the third Friday of any given calendar month. Specifically, the Exchange proposed to amend Rule 24.9 to provide that if the third Friday of the month subsequent to the expiration of a Volatility Index option is an Exchange holiday, the exercise settlement value of the Volatility Index option will be calculated on the business day that is thirty days prior to the Exchange 5 The options used to calculate the Volatility Indexes are traded on CBOE and generally expire on the third Friday of any given calendar month.
