Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on December 19, 2007, the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (‘‘CBOE’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been substantially prepared by the CBOE.

See discussion infra Section III. 2 17 VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:42 Jan 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of those statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose In March 2005, the Commission approved revisions to CBOE Rule 6.45A related to the introduction of Remote Market-Makers.6 Among other things, the Rule, pertaining to the allocation of orders represented in open outcry in equity options classes traded on Hybrid, was amended to clarify that only incrowd market participants would be eligible to participate in open outcry trade allocations. In addition, the Rule was amended to limit the duration of the Rule until September 14, 2005. The duration of the Rule was thereafter extended through December 31, 2007.7 As the duration period expires on December 31, 2007, the Exchange proposes to extend the effectiveness of the Rule through June 30, 2008.8 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 51366 (March 14, 2005), 70 FR 13217 (March 18, 2005) (SR–CBOE–2004–75). 7 See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 52423 (September 14, 2005), 70 FR 55194 (September 20, 2005) (SR–CBOE–2005–76) (extending the duration of the Rule through December 14, 2005); 52957 (December 15, 2005), 70 FR 76085 (December 22, 2005) (SR–CBOE–2005–102) (extending the Rule through March 14, 2006); 53524 (March 21, 2006), 71 FR 15235 (March 27, 2006) (SR–CBOE–2006–22) (extending the duration of the Rule through July 14, 2006); 54164 (July 17, 2006), 71 FR 42143 (July 25, 2006) (SR–CBOE–2006–60) (extending the duration of the Rule through October 31, 2006); 54680 (November 1, 2006), 71 FR 65554 (November 8, 2006) (SR–CBOE–2006–86) (extending the duration of the Rule through January 31, 2007); 55219 (February 1, 2007), 72 FR 6305 (February 9, 2007) (SR–CBOE–2007–10) (extending the duration of the Rule through April 30, 2007); 55676 (April 27, 2007), 72 FR 25348 (May 4, 2007) (SR–CBOE–2007– 40) (extending the duration of the Rule through July 31, 2007) and 56177 (August 1, 2007), 72 FR 44194 (August 7, 2007) (SR–CBOE–2007–89) (extending the duration of the Rule through December 31, 2007). 8 In order to effect proprietary transactions on the floor of the Exchange, in addition to complying with the requirements of the Rule, members are also required to comply with the requirements of Section 11(a)(1) of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 78k(a)(1), or qualify for an exemption. Section 11(a)(1) restricts securities transactions of a member of any national securities exchange effected on that exchange for (i) the member’s own account, (ii) the account of a person associated with the member, or (iii) an account over which the member or a person associated with the member exercises discretion, unless a specific exemption is available. The Exchange has issued regulatory circulars to members informing them of the applicability of PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 899 2. Statutory Basis Extension of the duration of the Rule will allow the Exchange to continue to operate under the existing allocation parameters for orders represented in open outcry in Hybrid on an uninterrupted basis. Accordingly, CBOE believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act 9 and the rules and regulations under the Act applicable to a national securities exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.10 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 11 requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change 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 Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposal. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (1) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (2) impose any significant burden on competition; and (3) become operative for thirty days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, it has become effective pursuant to Section these Section 11(a)(1) requirements each time the duration of the Rule was extended. See CBOE Regulatory Circulars RG05–103 (November 2, 2005), RG06–001 (January 3, 2006), RG06–34 (April 7, 2006), RG06–79 (July 31, 2006), RG06–115 (November 8, 2006), RG07–21 (February 8, 2007), RG07–53 (May 17, 2007) and RG07–88 (August 15, 2007). The Exchange represents that it expects to issue a similar regulatory circular to members reminding them of the applicability of the Section 11(a)(1) requirements with respect to the proposed rule change. 9 15 U.S.C. 78a, et seq. 10 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 11 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). E:\FR\FM\04JAN1.SGM 04JAN1 900 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 3 / Friday, January 4, 2008 / Notices 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 12 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) 13 thereunder.14 A proposed rule change filed under Commission Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 15 normally does not become operative prior to thirty days after the date of filing. The CBOE requests that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay, as specified in Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii), and designate the proposed rule change to become operative immediately to allow the Exchange to continue to operate under the existing allocation parameters for orders represented in open outcry in Hybrid on an uninterrupted basis. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because such waiver will allow the CBOE to continue to operate under the Rule without interruption. For this reason, the Commission designates the proposed rule change as operative upon filing.16 At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule change 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 the furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The CBOE proposes to extend the duration of CBOE Rule 6.45A(b) (the 
``Rule''), relating to the allocation of orders represented in open 
outcry in equity option classes designated by the Exchange to be traded 
on the CBOE Hybrid Trading System (``Hybrid'') through June 30, 2008. 
The text of the proposed rule change is available at CBOE, the 
Commission's Public Reference Room, and (http://www.cboe.org/Legal).

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

    In its filing with the Commission, the CBOE included statements 
concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and 
discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The 
text of those statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in 
Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such 
statements.

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

1. Purpose
    In March 2005, the Commission approved revisions to CBOE Rule 6.45A 
related to the introduction of Remote Market-Makers.\6\ Among other 
things, the Rule, pertaining to the allocation of orders represented in 
open outcry in equity options classes traded on Hybrid, was amended to 
clarify that only in-crowd market participants would be eligible to 
participate in open outcry trade allocations. In addition, the Rule was 
amended to limit the duration of the Rule until September 14, 2005. The 
duration of the Rule was thereafter extended through December 31, 
2007.\7\ As the duration period expires on December 31, 2007, the 
Exchange proposes to extend the effectiveness of the Rule through June 
30, 2008.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 51366 (March 14, 
2005), 70 FR 13217 (March 18, 2005) (SR-CBOE-2004-75).
    \7\ See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 52423 (September 
14, 2005), 70 FR 55194 (September 20, 2005) (SR-CBOE-2005-76) 
(extending the duration of the Rule through December 14, 2005); 
52957 (December 15, 2005), 70 FR 76085 (December 22, 2005) (SR-CBOE-
2005-102) (extending the Rule through March 14, 2006); 53524 (March 
21, 2006), 71 FR 15235 (March 27, 2006) (SR-CBOE-2006-22) (extending 
the duration of the Rule through July 14, 2006); 54164 (July 17, 
2006), 71 FR 42143 (July 25, 2006) (SR-CBOE-2006-60) (extending the 
duration of the Rule through October 31, 2006); 54680 (November 1, 
2006), 71 FR 65554 (November 8, 2006) (SR-CBOE-2006-86) (extending 
the duration of the Rule through January 31, 2007); 55219 (February 
1, 2007), 72 FR 6305 (February 9, 2007) (SR-CBOE-2007-10) (extending 
the duration of the Rule through April 30, 2007); 55676 (April 27, 
2007), 72 FR 25348 (May 4, 2007) (SR-CBOE-2007-40) (extending the 
duration of the Rule through July 31, 2007) and 56177 (August 1, 
2007), 72 FR 44194 (August 7, 2007) (SR-CBOE-2007-89) (extending the 
duration of the Rule through December 31, 2007).
    \8\ In order to effect proprietary transactions on the floor of 
the Exchange, in addition to complying with the requirements of the 
Rule, members are also required to comply with the requirements of 
Section 11(a)(1) of the Act, 15 U.S.C. 78k(a)(1), or qualify for an 
exemption. Section 11(a)(1) restricts securities transactions of a 
member of any national securities exchange effected on that exchange 
for (i) the member's own account, (ii) the account of a person 
associated with the member, or (iii) an account over which the 
member or a person associated with the member exercises discretion, 
unless a specific exemption is available. The Exchange has issued 
regulatory circulars to members informing them of the applicability 
of these Section 11(a)(1) requirements each time the duration of the 
Rule was extended. See CBOE Regulatory Circulars RG05-103 (November 
2, 2005), RG06-001 (January 3, 2006), RG06-34 (April 7, 2006), RG06-
79 (July 31, 2006), RG06-115 (November 8, 2006), RG07-21 (February 
8, 2007), RG07-53 (May 17, 2007) and RG07-88 (August 15, 2007). The 
Exchange represents that it expects to issue a similar regulatory 
circular to members reminding them of the applicability of the 
Section 11(a)(1) requirements with respect to the proposed rule 
change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    Extension of the duration of the Rule will allow the Exchange to 
continue to operate under the existing allocation parameters for orders 
represented in open outcry in Hybrid on an uninterrupted basis. 
Accordingly, CBOE believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
the Act \9\ and the rules and regulations under the Act applicable to a 
national securities exchange and, in particular, the requirements of 
Section 6(b) of the Act.\10\ Specifically, the Exchange believes the 
proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) \11\ 
requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to promote just 
and equitable principles of trade, to prevent fraudulent and 
manipulative acts and, in general, to protect investors and the public 
interest.

    \11\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change 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 Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the 
proposal.

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

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (1) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (2) impose any significant burden on competition; and (3) 
become operative for thirty days from the date on which it was filed, 
or such shorter time as the Commission may designate if consistent with 
the protection of investors and the public interest, it has become 
effective pursuant to Section

[[Page 900]]

19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \12\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \13\ thereunder.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \13\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
    \14\ The Exchange has given the Commission written notice of its 
intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief 
description and text of the proposed rule change, at least five 
business days prior to the date on which the Exchange filed the 
proposed rule change. See 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Commission Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \15\ 
normally does not become operative prior to thirty days after the date 
of filing. The CBOE requests that the Commission waive the 30-day 
operative delay, as specified in Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii), and designate 
the proposed rule change to become operative immediately to allow the 
Exchange to continue to operate under the existing allocation 
parameters for orders represented in open outcry in Hybrid on an 
uninterrupted basis. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day 
operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the 
public interest because such waiver will allow the CBOE to continue to 
operate under the Rule without interruption. For this reason, the 
Commission designates the proposed rule change as operative upon 
filing.\16\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
    \16\ For the purposes only of waiving the operative date of this 
proposal, the Commission has considered the proposed rule's impact 
on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of such proposed rule 
change, the Commission may summarily abrogate such rule change 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 the furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

IV. Solicitation of Comments

arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule 
change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of
