Securities Exchange Act of 1934; Emergency Order Pursuant to Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Taking Temporary Action To Respond to Market Developments, 55175-55180 [E8-22487]

Such price declines can give rise to questions about the underlying financial condition of an issuer, which in turn can create a crisis of confidence without a fundamental underlying basis. This crisis of confidence can impair the liquidity and ultimate viability of an issuer, with potentially broad market consequences. As a result of these recent developments, the Commission concluded that there continues to exist the potential of sudden and excessive fluctuations of securities prices generally and disruption in the functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair and orderly markets. Based on this conclusion, the Commission is exercising its powers under Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.1 Pursuant to Section 12(k)(2), in appropriate circumstances the Commission may issue summarily an order to alter, supplement, suspend, or impose requirements or restrictions with respect to matters or actions subject to regulation by the Commission. We have determined that issuer repurchases can represent an important source of liquidity during times of market volatility. Exchange Act Rule 10b–18 provides issuers with a safe harbor to effect repurchases within certain conditions. Historically, issuers generally have been reluctant to undertake repurchases without the certainty that their repurchases come within the safe harbor. Temporarily altering the timing and volume conditions in the safe harbor will provide additional flexibility and certainty to issuers that consider executing repurchases during the current market conditions. In these unusual and extraordinary circumstances, we believe altering the timing and volume conditions in Exchange Act Rule 10b–18 is necessary in the public interest and for the protection of investors to maintain fair and orderly securities markets, and to prevent substantial disruption in the securities markets. It is ordered, pursuant to our Section 12(k)(2) powers, that: In connection with a Rule 10b–18 purchase or with a Rule 10b–18 bid that is made during the period covered by this Order by the use of any means or instrumentality of interstate commerce or of the mails, or of any facility of any 1 This finding of an ‘‘emergency’’ is solely for purposes of Section 12(k)(2) of the Exchange Act and is not intended to have any other effect or meaning or to confer any right or impose any obligation other than set forth in this Order.

All other provisions of Exchange Act Rule 10b–18, including the manner and price of purchase conditions of paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(3), are not altered by this order.

The Commission is aware of the continued potential of sudden and excessive fluctuations of securities prices and disruption in the functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair and orderly markets. As evidenced by our recent publication of emergency orders under Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’),1 we are concerned 1 See Exchange Act Release No. 58166 (July 15, 2008), Exchange Act Release No. 58572 (September 17, 2008).

We also believe that some persons may take advantage of issuers that have become temporarily weakened by current market conditions to engage in inappropriate short selling in the securities of such issuers. Given the importance of confidence in our financial markets as a whole, we have become concerned about sudden and unexplained declines in the prices of securities. Such price declines can give rise to questions about the underlying financial condition of an issuer, which in turn can create a crisis of confidence without a fundamental underlying basis. This crisis of confidence can impair the liquidity and ultimate viability of an issuer, with potentially broad market consequences. As a result of these recent developments, the Commission concluded that there continues to exist the potential of sudden and excessive fluctuations of securities prices generally and disruption in the functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair and orderly markets. Based on this conclusion, the Commission is exercising its powers under Section 12(k)(2) of the Exchange Act.2 Pursuant to Section 12(k)(2), in appropriate circumstances the Commission may by order summarily take action to alter, supplement, suspend, or impose requirements or restrictions with respect to matters or actions subject to regulation by the Commission. We have concluded that it is necessary to require certain institutional investment managers to report information concerning daily short sales of securities. For purposes of this Order, we believe that section 13(f) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13f–1 provide useful and tested terms and definitions that provide a basis for requiring new disclosure. The Order therefore requires that an institutional investment manager that exercises investment discretion 3 with respect to accounts holding section 13(f) securities 4 having an aggregate fair market value on the last trading day of any month of any calendar year of at 2 This finding of an ‘‘emergency’’ is solely for purposes of Section 12(k)(2) of the Exchange Act and is not intended to have any other effect or meaning or to confer any right or impose any obligation other than set forth in this Order. 3 The term ‘‘investment discretion’’ has the same meaning as in Exchange Act Rule 13f–1(b). See 17 CFR 240.13f–1(b). 4 The term ‘‘section 13(f) securities’’ has the same meaning as in Exchange Act Rule 13f–1(c). See 17 CFR 240.13f–1(c).

Specifically, an institutional investment manager who has filed or was required to file a Form 13F for the calendar quarter ended June 30, 2008 under section 13(f) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13f–1(a) thereunder will be required to file a report on new Form SH with the Commission on the first business day 5 of every calendar week immediately following a week in which it effected short sales. The Form SH, which must be filed electronically and will be publicly available on our EDGAR system,6 must include disclosure of the number and value of securities sold short for each section 13(f) security, except for short sales in options, and the opening short position, closing short position, largest intraday short position, and the time of the largest intraday short position, for that security during each calendar day of the prior week. No filing, however, will be required when no short sales of a section 13(f) security have been effected since the previous filing of a Form SH. In addition, this disclosure requirement will only apply to short sales effected after the effective date of the Order. Finally, an institutional investment manager need not report short positions otherwise reportable if: (i) The short position in the section 13(f) securities constitutes less than onequarter of one percent of the class of the issuer’s section 13(f) securities issued and outstanding as reported on the issuer’s most recent annual or quarterly report, and any current report subsequent thereto, filed with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act, unless the manager knows or has reason to believe the information contained therein is inaccurate; and (ii) the fair market value of the short position in the section 13(f) securities is less than $1,000,000. We believe that the extraordinary circumstances we now confront require the new disclosure requirements we are imposing today. We also believe such disclosure requirements are in the public interest for the protection of investors and will ensure transparency in short selling. It is ordered that, pursuant to our Section 12(k)(2) powers: respect to accounts holding section 13(f) securities and that has filed or was required to file a Form 13F for the calendar quarter ended June 30, 2008, as required under section 13(f) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13f–1(a) thereunder, must file a report on Form SH with the Commission. The Form SH filing must be made on the first business day of each week immediately following a week in which the institutional investment manager has effected any short sale with respect to any section 13(f) security that is not an option. With respect to each section 13(f) security that is not an option, the Form SH filing must reflect the number and value of securities sold short during the day as well as the opening short position, closing short position, largest intraday short position, and the time of the largest intraday short position, for that security on each calendar day of the prior week in which the institutional investment manager engaged in trading activity with respect to short sales. Finally, an institutional investment manager need not report short positions otherwise reportable if: (i) The short position in the section 13(f) securities constitutes less than one-quarter of one percent of the class of the issuer’s section 13(f) securities issued and outstanding as reported on the issuer’s most recent annual or quarterly report, and any current report subsequent thereto, filed with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act, unless the manager knows or has reason to believe the information contained therein is inaccurate; and (ii) the fair market value of the short position in the section 13(f) securities is less than $1,000,000. Short sale has the meaning set forth in Rule 200 of Regulation SHO (17 CFR 242.200), and terms referenced in that provision shall have the same meaning as set forth in Regulation SHO; and short positions to be reported are those resulting from ‘‘short sales’’ as that term is defined in SEC Rule 200(a) of Regulation SHO. It is further ordered that, pursuant to our Section 12(k)(2) powers, the text of Form SH be as set forth in the attachment to this Order.

Rule as to Use of Form SH. Institutional investment managers (‘‘Managers’’) must use Form SH for reports to the Commission required by the Commission’s Emergency Order, Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Release No. 58591, September 18, 2008 (‘‘September 18, 2008 Order’’). The September 18, 2008 Order provides that every Manager that exercises investment discretion with respect to accounts holding section 13(f) securities, as defined in paragraph (c) of section 13(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 [15 U.S.C. 78m(f)] (‘‘Exchange Act’’), who has filed or was required to file a Form 13F for the calendar quarter ended June 30, 2008, must file a report on Form SH with the Commission to report certain information about short sales and short positions. The Form SH filing must be made on the Monday (or, if Monday is a federal holiday, the first business day thereafter) of each calendar week immediately following a Form SH reporting period (i.e., the preceding Monday-Sunday, or seven calendar days) in which the Manager has entered into any new short positions or closed part or all of any short positions with respect to any section 13(f) securities except for any short position(s) for options (‘‘SH Short Positions’’). The Form SH will report SH Short Positions for the Monday-Sunday immediately preceding the Monday on which the Form SH is due to be filed. 2. Rules to Prevent Duplicative Reporting. If two or more Managers, each of which is required by the September 18, 2008 Order to file a report on Form SH for the reporting period, exercise investment discretion with respect to the same securities, only one such Manager must include information in its reports on Form SH. A Manager having information that is required by the September 18, 2008 Order to be reported on Form SH, and such information is reported by another Manager (or Managers), such Manager must identify the Manager(s) reporting on its behalf in the manner described in Special Instruction 6. 3. Filing of Form SH. A Manager must file a Form SH report with the Commission on or before 5:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time or Eastern Daylight Savings Time, whichever currently is in effect in Washington, DC (‘‘Eastern Time’’) on the Monday (or, if Monday is a federal holiday, the first business day thereafter) of each week immediately following the preceding seven calendar day period in which the Manager E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 186 / Wednesday, September 24, 2008 / Notices has entered into any new SH Short Position(s) or closed part or all of any SH Short Position(s). 4. Official List of Section 13(f) Securities. The official list of section 13(f) securities published by the Commission (the ‘‘13F List’’) lists the securities the holdings of which a Manager is to report on Form 13F. See rule 13f–1(c) [17 CFR 240.13f–1(c)]. Form SH filers may rely on the current 13F List in determining whether they need to report on Form SH information about any particular equity security, excluding short positions on options. The 13F List is available on the SEC’s website, at http://www.sec.gov/ divisions/investment/13flists.htm.

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

[Release No. 58591]


Securities Exchange Act of 1934; Emergency Order Pursuant to 
Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Taking 
Temporary Action To Respond to Market Developments

September 18, 2008.
    The Commission is aware of the continued potential of sudden and 
excessive fluctuations of securities prices and disruption in the 
functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair and 
orderly markets. As evidenced by our recent publication of emergency 
orders under Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Exchange Act''),\1\ we are concerned about the possible unnecessary 
or artificial price movements based on unfounded rumors regarding the 
stability of financial institutions and other issuers exacerbated by 
short selling. We also believe that some persons may take advantage of 
issuers that have become temporarily weakened by current market 
conditions to engage in inappropriate short selling in the securities 
of such issuers.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Exchange Act Release No. 58166 (July 15, 2008), Exchange 
Act Release No. 58572 (September 17, 2008).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Given the importance of confidence in our financial markets as a 
whole, we have become concerned about sudden and unexplained declines 
in the prices of securities. Such price declines can give rise to 
questions about the underlying financial condition of an issuer, which 
in turn can create a crisis of confidence without a fundamental 
underlying basis. This crisis of confidence can impair the liquidity 
and ultimate viability of an issuer, with potentially broad market 
consequences.
    As a result of these recent developments, the Commission concluded 
that there continues to exist the potential of sudden and excessive 
fluctuations of securities prices generally and disruption in the 
functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair and 
orderly markets. Based on this conclusion, the Commission is exercising 
its powers under Section 12(k)(2) of the Exchange Act.\2\ Pursuant to 
Section 12(k)(2), in appropriate circumstances the Commission may by 
order summarily take action to alter, supplement, suspend, or impose 
requirements or restrictions with respect to matters or actions subject 
to regulation by the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ This finding of an ``emergency'' is solely for purposes of 
Section 12(k)(2) of the Exchange Act and is not intended to have any 
other effect or meaning or to confer any right or impose any 
obligation other than set forth in this Order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have concluded that it is necessary to require certain 
institutional investment managers to report information concerning 
daily short sales of securities. For purposes of this Order, we believe 
that section 13(f) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13f-1 provide useful 
and tested terms and definitions that provide a basis for requiring new 
disclosure. The Order therefore requires that an institutional 
investment manager that exercises investment discretion \3\ with 
respect to accounts holding section 13(f) securities \4\ having an 
aggregate fair market value on the last trading day of any month of any 
calendar year of at

[[Page 55176]]

least $100,000,000 must file a new form with the Commission. 
Specifically, an institutional investment manager who has filed or was 
required to file a Form 13F for the calendar quarter ended June 30, 
2008 under section 13(f) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13f-1(a) 
thereunder will be required to file a report on new Form SH with the 
Commission on the first business day \5\ of every calendar week 
immediately following a week in which it effected short sales.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The term ``investment discretion'' has the same meaning as 
in Exchange Act Rule 13f-1(b). See 17 CFR 240.13f-1(b).
    \4\ The term ``section 13(f) securities'' has the same meaning 
as in Exchange Act Rule 13f-1(c). See 17 CFR 240.13f-1(c).
    \5\ See Exchange Act Rule 0-2 for a description of the business 
hours of the Commission. 17 CFR 240.0-2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Form SH, which must be filed electronically and will be 
publicly available on our EDGAR system,\6\ must include disclosure of 
the number and value of securities sold short for each section 13(f) 
security, except for short sales in options, and the opening short 
position, closing short position, largest intraday short position, and 
the time of the largest intraday short position, for that security 
during each calendar day of the prior week. No filing, however, will be 
required when no short sales of a section 13(f) security have been 
effected since the previous filing of a Form SH. In addition, this 
disclosure requirement will only apply to short sales effected after 
the effective date of the Order. Finally, an institutional investment 
manager need not report short positions otherwise reportable if: (i) 
The short position in the section 13(f) securities constitutes less 
than one-quarter of one percent of the class of the issuer's section 
13(f) securities issued and outstanding as reported on the issuer's 
most recent annual or quarterly report, and any current report 
subsequent thereto, filed with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange 
Act, unless the manager knows or has reason to believe the information 
contained therein is inaccurate; and (ii) the fair market value of the 
short position in the section 13(f) securities is less than $1,000,000.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ No Commission procedure for seeking confidential treatment 
of information filed with or transmitted to the Commission, such as 
those in 17 CFR 200.80, 200.83, or 240.24b-2, shall apply to the 
information that this Order requires to be filed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We believe that the extraordinary circumstances we now confront 
require the new disclosure requirements we are imposing today. We also 
believe such disclosure requirements are in the public interest for the 
protection of investors and will ensure transparency in short selling.
    It is ordered that, pursuant to our Section 12(k)(2) powers:

    Every institutional investment manager that exercises investment 
discretion with respect to accounts holding section 13(f) securities 
and that has filed or was required to file a Form 13F for the 
calendar quarter ended June 30, 2008, as required under section 
13(f) of the Exchange Act and Rule 13f-1(a) thereunder, must file a 
report on Form SH with the Commission. The Form SH filing must be 
made on the first business day of each week immediately following a 
week in which the institutional investment manager has effected any 
short sale with respect to any section 13(f) security that is not an 
option. With respect to each section 13(f) security that is not an 
option, the Form SH filing must reflect the number and value of 
securities sold short during the day as well as the opening short 
position, closing short position, largest intraday short position, 
and the time of the largest intraday short position, for that 
security on each calendar day of the prior week in which the 
institutional investment manager engaged in trading activity with 
respect to short sales.
    Finally, an institutional investment manager need not report 
short positions otherwise reportable if: (i) The short position in 
the section 13(f) securities constitutes less than one-quarter of 
one percent of the class of the issuer's section 13(f) securities 
issued and outstanding as reported on the issuer's most recent 
annual or quarterly report, and any current report subsequent 
thereto, filed with the Commission pursuant to the Exchange Act, 
unless the manager knows or has reason to believe the information 
contained therein is inaccurate; and (ii) the fair market value of 
the short position in the section 13(f) securities is less than 
$1,000,000.
    Short sale has the meaning set forth in Rule 200 of Regulation 
SHO (17 CFR 242.200), and terms referenced in that provision shall 
have the same meaning as set forth in Regulation SHO; and short 
positions to be reported are those resulting from ``short sales'' as 
that term is defined in SEC Rule 200(a) of Regulation SHO.

    It is further ordered that, pursuant to our Section 12(k)(2) 
powers, the text of Form SH be as set forth in the attachment to this 
Order.
    This Order shall be effective at 12:01 a.m. EDT on September 22, 
2008, the first Form SH shall be required to be filed on September 29, 
2008, and this Order shall terminate at 11:59 p.m. on October 2, 2008 
unless further extended by the Commission.

    By the Commission.
J. Lynn Taylor,
Assistant Secretary.

FORM SH

INFORMATION REQUIRED OF INSTITUTIONAL INVESTMENT MANAGERS PURSUANT TO 
EMERGENCY ORDER, SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934 RELEASE NO. 58591, 
SEPTEMBER 18, 2008

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Rule as to Use of Form SH. Institutional investment managers 
(``Managers'') must use Form SH for reports to the Commission 
required by the Commission's Emergency Order, Securities Exchange 
Act of 1934 Release No. 58591, September 18, 2008 (``September 18, 
2008 Order''). The September 18, 2008 Order provides that every 
Manager that exercises investment discretion with respect to 
accounts holding section 13(f) securities, as defined in paragraph 
(c) of section 13(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 [15 
U.S.C. 78m(f)] (``Exchange Act''), who has filed or was required to 
file a Form 13F for the calendar quarter ended June 30, 2008, must 
file a report on Form SH with the Commission to report certain 
information about short sales and short positions. The Form SH 
filing must be made on the Monday (or, if Monday is a federal 
holiday, the first business day thereafter) of each calendar week 
immediately following a Form SH reporting period (i.e., the 
preceding Monday-Sunday, or seven calendar days) in which the 
Manager has entered into any new short positions or closed part or 
all of any short positions with respect to any section 13(f) 
securities except for any short position(s) for options (``SH Short 
Positions''). The Form SH will report SH Short Positions for the 
Monday-Sunday immediately preceding the Monday on which the Form SH 
is due to be filed.
    2. Rules to Prevent Duplicative Reporting. If two or more 
Managers, each of which is required by the September 18, 2008 Order 
to file a report on Form SH for the reporting period, exercise 
investment discretion with respect to the same securities, only one 
such Manager must include information in its reports on Form SH.
    A Manager having information that is required by the September 
18, 2008 Order to be reported on Form SH, and such information is 
reported by another Manager (or Managers), such Manager must 
identify the Manager(s) reporting on its behalf in the manner 
described in Special Instruction 6.
    3. Filing of Form SH. A Manager must file a Form SH report with 
the Commission on or before 5:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time or 
Eastern Daylight Savings Time, whichever currently is in effect in 
Washington, DC (``Eastern Time'') on the Monday (or, if Monday is a 
federal holiday, the first business day thereafter) of each week 
immediately following the preceding seven calendar day period in 
which the Manager

[[Page 55177]]

has entered into any new SH Short Position(s) or closed part or all 
of any SH Short Position(s).
    4. Official List of Section 13(f) Securities. The official list 
of section 13(f) securities published by the Commission (the ``13F 
List'') lists the securities the holdings of which a Manager is to 
report on Form 13F. See rule 13f-1(c) [17 CFR 240.13f-1(c)]. Form SH 
filers may rely on the current 13F List in determining whether they 
need to report on Form SH information about any particular equity 
security, excluding short positions on options. The 13F List is 
available on the SEC's website, at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/
investment/13flists.htm. Paper copies are available at a reasonable 
fee from the Securities and Exchange Commission, Public Reference 
Room, 100 F Street, NE, Washington, DC 20549.
