The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization 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 Fees and Credits in Section 7 1 15 VerDate Mar<15>2010 II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change Currently, Section 7d of the BOX Fee Schedule specifies a $0.30 credit and fee for transactions in the BOX Price Jkt 223001 Improvement Period (‘‘PIP’’). These credits and fees apply equally to all account types, whether Public Customer, Broker Dealer or Market Maker, and across options classes, both those within the Penny Pilot program and those not in the Penny Pilot program (‘‘Non-Penny classes’’), and are in addition to any applicable trading fees, as described in Sections 1 through 3 of the BOX Fee Schedule. The Exchange proposes to increase the existing credits and fees within Section 7d for PIP transactions in NonPenny classes, and in Penny Pilot classes (other than QQQQ, SPY, and IWM) where the trade price is equal to or greater than $3.00, from $0.30 to $0.75. Further, the Exchange proposes to add corresponding provisions and clarifying language to Section 7d of the BOX Fee Schedule to specify that the fee and credit for all PIP transactions will remain $0.30: (1) In QQQQ, SPY, and IWM; and (2) in all other Penny Pilot Classes where the trade price is less than $3.00.5 The proposed increase in credits and fees for the specified PIP transactions is designed to provide all BOX market participants an additional incentive to submit their customer orders to the PIP and allow those orders the opportunity to benefit from its potential price improvement. BOX believes that the change to PIP transaction fees and credits are competitive, fair and reasonable, and non-discriminatory in that they apply to all categories of participants and across all account types. Additionally, BOX believes the PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5 See BOX Trading Rules Chapter V, Section 6(b). For the QQQQs, SPR, and IWM, the minimum trading increment for all options contracts will be one cent, and that for all classes in the Penny Pilot trading at less than $3.00 per option, the minimum trading increment shall be one cent.
