(‘‘Bourse de Montreal’’), submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Rule 9b–1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 five definitive copies of an amended options disclosure document (‘‘ODD’’) that describes the risks and characteristics of options traded on the ´ Bourse de Montreal.2 The CDCC has CFR 240.9b–1.

Since then, the Commission has reviewed several amendments to the ODD. See, e.g., Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 51124 (February 2, 2005), 70 FR 6740 (February 8, 2005) (File No. SR–ODD–2004–03) (amending the ODD to reflect, among other things, the name change from the S&P/TSE 60 Index to the S&P/TSX 60 Index and to add an Annex to the ODD setting forth the holidays and early closings of the ´ Bourse de Montreal); 44333 (May 21, 2001), 66 FR 29193 (May 29, 2001) (File No. SR–ODD–00–04) (amending the ODD to reflect, among other things, changes to the structure of the Canadian equity markets and to provide a discussion of Enhanced Capital Marketing); 37569 (August 14, 1996), 61 FR 43281 (August 21, 1996) (File No. SR–ODD–96–01) (amending the ODD to reflect, among other things, the name change from TCO to CDCC); 29033 (April 1, 1991), 56 FR 14407 (April 9, 1991) (File No. SR– ODD–91–1) (amending the ODD to include, among other things, references to Toronto Stock Exchange 35 Composite Index options); 24480 (May 19, 1987), PO 00000 1 17 revised the ODD to, among other things, reflect the CDCC’s current automatic exercise parameters for equity and bond options, to update the discussion of the treatment of adjustments in the terms of equity options with respect to stock splits, stock dividends or other stock distributions, and to update the discussion of Canadian federal income tax considerations applicable to nonresidents. Rule 9b–1 under the Act provides that an options market must file five preliminary copies of an amended ODD with the Commission at least 30 days prior to the date when definitive copies of the amended ODD are furnished to customers, unless the Commission determines otherwise, having due regard to the adequacy of the information disclosed and the public interest and protection of investors.3 The Commission has reviewed the amended ODD and finds, having due regard to the adequacy of the information disclosed, that it is consistent with the protection of investors and in the public interest to allow the distribution of the amended ODD as of the date of this order.4 It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Rule 9b–1 under the Act,5 that the distribution of the revised ODD (SR– ODD–2008–03) as of the date of this is order, is approved. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.6 Florence E. Harmon, Acting Secretary. [FR Doc.
