Solicitation of Applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2008 Motor Carrier Safety Assistance Program (MCSAP) High Priority and New Entrant Grant Funding, 64106-64107 [E7-22187]

Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES 64106 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 219 / Wednesday, November 14, 2007 / Notices component securities change in price. These intra-day values of each Underlying Index will be disseminated at least every 15 seconds throughout the trading day by Amex or another organization authorized by the relevant Underlying Index provider. Finally, the Trust’s Web site will provide various information, including data for at least the four previous calendar quarters (or the life of a Fund, if shorter) indicating how frequently each Fund’s Shares traded at a premium or discount to NAV based on the daily closing price and the closing NAV, and the magnitude of such premiums and discounts. The Commission also believes that the Exchange’s trading halt rules are reasonably designed to prevent trading in the Shares when transparency is impaired. Existing NYSE Arca Equities Rule 7.34(a)(4), which will apply to the trading of the Shares, provides that, if the IIV is no longer calculated or disseminated as required (a) during the Opening Session (4 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. ET), the Exchange may continue to trade the Shares for the remainder of the Opening Session; (b) during the Core Trading Session (9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET), the Exchange must halt trading in the Shares; and (c) during the Late Trading Session (4 p.m. to 8 p.m. ET), the Exchange may continue trading in the Shares only if the original listing market traded such Shares until the close of its regular trading session without halt. If the Indicative IIV continues not to be calculated or disseminated as of the next business day’s Opening Session, the Exchange will not commence trading in the Shares in such Opening Session. The Exchange may resume trading in the Shares only if the calculation and dissemination of the IIV resumes, or trading in the Shares resumes in the original listing market. The Commission notes that, if the Shares should be delisted by the listing exchange, the Exchange would no longer have authority to trade the Shares pursuant to this order. In support of this proposal, the Exchange has made the following representations: (1) The Exchange’s surveillance procedures are adequate to address any concerns associated with the trading of the Shares on a UTP basis. (2) The Exchange would inform its members in an Information Bulletin of the special characteristics and risks associated with trading the Shares, including risks inherent with trading the Shares during the Opening and Late Trading Sessions when the updated IIV is not calculated and disseminated and suitability recommendation requirements. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:23 Nov 13, 2007 Jkt 214001 (3) The Exchange would require its members to deliver a prospectus or product description to investors purchasing Shares prior to or concurrently with a transaction in such Shares and will note this prospectus delivery requirement in the Information Bulletin. This approval order is based on the Exchange’s representations. The Commission finds good cause for approving this proposal before the thirtieth day after the publication of notice thereof in the Federal Register. As noted above, the Commission previously approved the original listing and trading of the Shares on Amex. The Commission presently is not aware of any regulatory issue that should cause it to revisit those findings or would preclude the trading of the Shares on the Exchange pursuant to UTP. Accelerating approval of this proposal should benefit investors by creating, without undue delay, additional competition in the market for such Shares.
