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 requests for extension of the previously approved collections of information discussed below. The Code of Federal Regulation citation to this collection of information is 17 CFR 240.19b–4(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (17 U.S.C 78a et seq.) (the ‘‘Act’’). Rule 19b–4(e) permits a selfregulatory organization (‘‘SRO’’) to immediately list and trade a new derivative securities product so long as such product is in compliance with the criteria of Rule 19b–4(e) under the Act. However, in order for the Commission to maintain an accurate record of all new derivative securities products traded through the facilities of SROs and to determine whether an SRO has properly availed itself of the permission VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:49 Jan 28, 2010 Jkt 220001 granted by Rule 19b–4(e), it is necessary that the SRO maintain, on-site, a copy of Form 19b–4(e) under the Act. Rule 19b–4(e) requires SROs to file a summary form, Form 19b–4(e), and thereby notify the Commission, within five business days after the commencement of trading a new derivative securities product. In addition, the Commission reviews SRO compliance with Rule 19b–4(e) through its routine inspections of the SROs. The collection of information is designed to allow the Commission to maintain an accurate record of all new derivative securities products traded through the facilities of SROs and to determine whether an SRO has properly availed itself of the permission granted by Rule 19b–4(e). The respondents to the collection of information are SROs (as defined by the Act), all of which are national securities exchanges. Twelve respondents file an average total of 3,180 responses per year, which corresponds to an estimated annual response burden of 3,180 hours. Compliance with Rule 19b–4(e) is mandatory. Information received in response to Rule 19b–4(e) shall not be kept confidential; the information collected is public information. Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Commission, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Comments should be directed to Charles Boucher, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Shirley Martinson, 6432 General Green Way, Alexandria, Virginia 22312 or send an e-mail to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.

Rule 23c–3 (17 CFR 270.23c–3) under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) is entitled: ‘‘Repurchase of Securities of Closed-End Companies.’’ The rule permits certain closed-end investment companies (‘‘closed-end funds’’ or ‘‘funds’’) to offer to repurchase from shareholders a limited number of shares at net asset value. The rule includes several reporting and recordkeeping requirements. The fund must send shareholders a notification that contains specified information each time the fund makes a repurchase offer (on a quarterly, semi-annual, or annual basis, or for certain funds, on a discretionary basis not more often than every two years). The fund also must file copies of the shareholder notification with the Commission (electronically through the Commission’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval System (‘‘EDGAR’’)) attached to Form N– 23c–3 (17 CFR 274.221), a filing that provides limited information about the fund and the type of offer the fund is making.1 The fund must describe in its annual report to shareholders the fund’s policy concerning repurchase offers and the results of any repurchase offers made during the reporting period. The fund’s board of directors must adopt written procedures designed to ensure that the fund’s investment portfolio is sufficiently liquid to meet its repurchase obligations and other obligations under the rule. The board periodically must review the composition of the fund’s portfolio and change the liquidity 1 Form N–23c–3 requires the fund to state its registration number, its full name and address, the date of the accompanying shareholder notification, and the type of offer being made (periodic, discretionary, or both).
