The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to adopt a new member fee schedule for the resumption of its cash equities trading business. The text of the proposed rule change is available from the principal office of the Exchange and from the U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). 2 17 CFR 240.19b–4.

The text of these 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 aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose On August 29, 2008, the Exchange was acquired by The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (‘‘NASDAQ OMX’’). At the time of this acquisition, the Exchange was not operating a venue for trading cash equities. Pursuant to SR–BSE– 2008–48, the Exchange has adopted a new rulebook with rules governing membership, the regulatory obligations of members, listing, and equities trading.3 The new rules, which are designated as the ‘‘Equity Rules,’’ are based to a substantial extent on the rules of The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (the ‘‘NASDAQ Exchange’’). The Equity Rules leave in effect the Exchange’s preexisting rules (the ‘‘Options Rules’’) for the purpose of governing trading on the Exchange’s Boston Options Exchange facility (‘‘BOX’’). In this filing, the Exchange is proposing new fees to be charged to members in connection with the resumption of its cash equities trading business. The fee schedules are structurally similar to those of the NASDAQ Exchange, but with the omission of many fees that are not pertinent to the Exchange’s planned business and with several differences in the level of certain fees. Membership Fees As provided in proposed Equity Rule 7001, the Exchange will charge a $2,000 membership application fee, a $3,000 annual membership fee, and a $500 3 Securities Exchange Act Release No. 59154 (December 23, 2008), 73 FR 80468 (December 31, 2008) (SR–BSE–2008–48). 1 15 PO 00000 6441 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\09FEN1.SGM 09FEN1
