Rule 101 prohibits distribution participants from purchasing activities at specified times during a distribution of securities. Persons otherwise covered by these rules may seek to use several applicable exceptions such as a calculation of the average daily trading volume of the securities in distribution, the maintenance of policies regarding information barriers between their affiliates, and the maintenance of a written policy regarding general compliance with Regulation M for de minimus transactions. There are approximately 1634 respondents per year that require an aggregate total of 31,355 hours to comply with this rule. Each respondent makes an estimated 1 annual response. Each response takes approximately 19.19 hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance burden per year is 31,355 burden hours. The total compliance cost for the respondents is approximately $1,763,718.75, resulting in a cost of compliance for the respondent per response of approximately $1079.39 (i.e., $1,763,718.75/1634 responses).

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 (‘‘Commission’’) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget for extension and approval. PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • Rule 15c2–11 (17 CFR 240.15c2– 11)—Initiation or resumption of quotations without specific information On September 13, 1971, effective December 13, 1971 (see 36 FR 18641, September 18, 1971), the Commission adopted Rule 15c2–11 (‘‘Rule 15c2–11’’ or ‘‘Rule’’) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et seq.) to regulate the initiation or resumption of quotations in a quotation medium by a broker-dealer for over-thecounter (‘‘OTC’’) securities. The Rule was designed primarily to prevent certain manipulative and fraudulent trading schemes that had arisen in connection with the distribution and trading of unregistered securities issued by shell companies or other companies having outstanding but infrequently traded securities. Subject to certain exceptions, the Rule prohibits brokersdealers from publishing a quotation for a security, or submitting a quotation for publication, in a quotation medium unless they have reviewed specified information concerning the security and the issuer. Based on information provided by Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (‘‘FINRA’’), in the 2006 calendar year, FINRA received approximately 970 applications from broker-dealers to initiate or resume publication of covered OTC securities in the OTC Bulletin Board and/or the Pink Sheets or other quotation mediums. We estimate that (i) 80% of the covered OTC securities were issued by reporting issuers, while the other 20% were issued by non-reporting issuers, and (ii) it will take a broker-dealer about 4 hours to review, record and retain the information pertaining to a reporting issuer, and about 8 hours to review, record and retain the information pertaining to a non-reporting issuer. We therefore estimate that brokerdealers who initiate or resume publication of quotations for covered OTC securities of reporting issuers will require 3,104 hours (970 × 80% × 4) to review, record and retain the information required by the Rule. We estimate that broker-dealers who initiate or resume publication of quotations for covered OTC securities of non-reporting issuers will require 1,552 hours (970 × 20% × 8) to review, record and retain the information required by the Rule. Thus, we estimate the total annual burden hours for broker-dealers to initiate or resume publication of quotations of covered OTC securities to be 4,656 hours (3,104 + 1,552). The Commission believes that these 4,656 E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1

    Rule 101, OMB Control No. 3235-0464, SEC File No. 270-408

    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 (``Commission'') has submitted to the Office of Management 
and Budget a request for approval of extension of the existing 
collection of information provided for in the following rule: Rule 101 
of Regulation M (17 CFR 242.101).
    Rule 101 prohibits distribution participants from purchasing 
activities at specified times during a distribution of securities. 
Persons otherwise covered by these rules may seek to use several 
applicable exceptions such as a calculation of the average daily 
trading volume of the securities in distribution, the maintenance of 
policies regarding information barriers between their affiliates, and 
the maintenance of a written policy regarding general compliance with 
Regulation M for de minimus transactions.
    There are approximately 1634 respondents per year that require an 
aggregate total of 31,355 hours to comply with this rule. Each 
respondent makes an estimated 1 annual response. Each response takes 
approximately 19.19 hours to complete. Thus, the total compliance 
burden per year is 31,355 burden hours. The total compliance cost for 
the respondents is approximately $1,763,718.75, resulting in a cost of 
compliance for the respondent per response of approximately $1079.39 
(i.e., $1,763,718.75/1634 responses).
