B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange 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 Written comments were neither solicited nor received. cprice-sewell on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 11 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.12 A proposed rule change filed pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6) under the Act 13 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of its filing. However, Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 14 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay because the Exchange believes that: (i) Doing so will avoid potential confusion and inconsistent treatment of companies that could arise if the Exchange was unable to apply this provision on August 31, after having applied such a provision during the temporary suspension period, and then doing so again on September 30 after the filing becomes operative, (ii) such a waiver will allow the Exchange to implement a standard substantially similar to that in place at Nasdaq, and (iii) the Commission has previously published 11 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. The Exchange has satisfied the fiveday pre-filing requirement. 13 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 14 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 12 17 VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:47 Sep 08, 2009 Jkt 217001 for public comment the temporary suspension of the dollar price continued listing standard (which included the same early cure provision as proposed in this filing) and received no comments. The Commission believes that waiving the 30-day operative delay 15 is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. As noted by the NYSE, the proposal was previously published for comment and implemented during the temporary suspension of the dollar price continued listing standard.16 The Commission received no comments on this change. In addition, the proposal will avoid confusion as to the applicable compliance period and is not inconsistent with how NASDAQ applies its compliance period. For these reasons, the Commission believes it is appropriate to waive the 30-day operative delay, allowing the proposed rule change to become operative upon filing. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the 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 furtherance of the purposes of the Act. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Electronic Comments • Use the Commission’s Internet comment form (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml); or • Send an e-mail to rulecomments@sec.gov.
