Commission’s Findings and Order Granting Accelerated Approval of the Proposed Rule Change After careful consideration, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the requirements of the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange.8 In particular, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with section 6(b)(5) of the Act,9 which requires that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and 8 In approving this rule change, the Commission notes that it has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 9 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:48 Nov 15, 2007 Jkt 214001 perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The proposal is narrowly tailored to address the circumstances where an equity option class is currently ineligible for initial listing on the Exchange even though it meets the Exchange’s continued listing standards and is trading on another options exchange. Allowing CBOE to list and trade options on such underlying securities should help promote competition among the exchanges that list and trade options. The Commission notes, and the Exchange represents, that the procedures that the Exchange currently employs to determine whether a particular underlying security meets the initial equity option listing criteria for the Exchange will similarly be applied when determining whether an underlying security meets the Exchange’s continued listing criteria. The Commission finds good cause, pursuant to section 19(b)(2)(B) of the Act,10 for approving the proposed rule change prior to the 30th day after the publication of the notice of the filing thereof in the Federal Register. The Commission notes that the proposed rule change is substantially identical to the proposed rule change submitted by the American Stock Exchange LLC,11 which was previously approved by the Commission after an opportunity for notice and comment, and therefore does not raise any new regulatory issues. V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to section 19(b)(2) of the Act,12 that the proposed rule change (SR–CBOE–2007– 114), as amended, be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.13 Nancy M. Morris, Secretary. [FR Doc.
