The subject matters of the Open Meeting will be: Item 1: The Commission will consider whether to adopt new rules and rule amendments under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 to implement provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. These rules and rule amendments are designed to give effect to provisions of Title IV of the Dodd-Frank Act that, among other things, increase the statutory threshold for registration of investment advisers with the Commission, require advisers to hedge funds and other private funds to register with the Commission, and address reporting by certain investment advisers that are exempt from registration. Item 2: The Commission will consider whether to adopt rules that would implement new exemptions from the registration requirements of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 for advisers to venture capital funds and advisers with less than $150 million in private fund assets under management in the United States. These exemptions were enacted as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The new rules also would clarify the meaning of certain terms included in a new exemption for foreign private advisers. Item 3: The Commission will consider whether to adopt a rule defining ‘‘family offices’’ that will be excluded from the definition of an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. At times, changes in Commission priorities require alterations in the scheduling of meeting items.

The Exchange has designated the proposed rule change as constituting a non-controversial rule change under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) under the Act,3 which renders the proposal effective upon filing with the Commission. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend its rules to permit the Exchange to list 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 2 17 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:06 Jun 10, 2011 Jkt 223001 additional expiration months if such expiration months are listed on another exchange. The text of the rule proposal is available on the Exchange’s Web site (http://www.cboe.org/legal), at the Exchange’s Office of the Secretary and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of those 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 parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend CBOE’s Rules to permit the Exchange to list additional expiration months if such expiration months are listed on another exchange. This filing is based on a filing previously submitted by NASDAQ OMX PHLX, Inc. (‘‘PHLX’’) 4 and by International Securities Exchange, LLC (‘‘ISE’’).5 Pursuant to Interpretation and Policy .03 to Rule 5.5, the Exchange typically opens four (4) expiration months for each class of options open for trading on the Exchange: The first two being the two nearest months, regardless of the quarterly cycle on which that class trades; the third and fourth being the next two months of the quarterly cycle previously designated by the Exchange for that specific class. For example, if the Exchange listed, in late April, a new stock option on a January-April-JulyOctober quarterly cycle, the Exchange would list the two nearest term months (May and June) and the next two expiration months of the cycle (July and October). When the May series expires, the Exchange would add January series. When the June series expires, the Exchange would add August series as 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63700 (January 11, 2011) 76 FR 2931 (January 18, 2011) (SR–PHLX–2011–04). 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 64343 (April 26, 2011), 76 FR 24546 (May 2, 2011) (SR– ISE–2011–26). PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the next month, and would not add April. In 2010, for competitive reasons, the Exchange established a pilot program pursuant to which CBOE would list up to an additional two expiration months, for a total of six expiration months for each class of options open for trading on the Exchange (the ‘‘Additional Expiration Months Pilot’’).6 PHLX submitted a proposal to adopt rules that permit it to list an unlimited number of expiration months and series for each class of standard options opened for trading on that exchange. Specifically, PHLX amended its rules so that it can open ‘‘at least one expiration month’’ for each class of standard options open for trading on that exchange. CBOE does not believe that its Additional Expiration Months Pilot restricts the total number expirations that CBOE may list under its Rules. However, at least one other exchange (ISE), which has adopted a similar Additional Expiration Months Pilot has filed to expressly permit the listing of additional series if such series are listed on at least one other registered national securities exchange. For competitive reasons, CBOE proposes to add new Interpretation and Policy .19 to Rule 5.5 and new Interpretation and Policy .12 to Rule 24.9 to permit the Exchange to list additional expiration months on options classes opened for trading on the Exchange if such expiration months are opened for trading on at least one other national securities exchange. This proposed rule change will allow CBOE to match the listing of expiration months that other exchanges list. The Exchange notes that the proposed rule change affords additional flexibility in that it will permit the exchange to list those additional expiration months that have an actual demand from market participants thereby potentially reducing the proliferation of classes and series. The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is proper, and indeed necessary, in light of the need to have rules that permit the listing of identical expiration months across exchanges for products that multiplylisted and fungible with one another. The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change should encourage 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 63185 (October 27, 2010), 75 FR 67419 (November 2, 2010) (SR–CBOE–2010–97). As stated in footnote 5 at page 67419, CBOE does not believe that Rule 5.5.03 limits the maximum number of expiration months that may be listed. Rule 5.5(a) and 5.5(c) provide CBOE with the flexibility to add additional expiration months, which the Exchange has previously done. By establishing the Additional Series Pilot Program, CBOE did not limit its existing ability. E:\FR\FM\13JNN1.SGM 13JNN1
