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 a request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. The title for the collection of information is ‘‘Form N–6F (17 CFR 274.15), Notice of Intent to Elect to be Subject to Sections 55 through 65 of the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:29 Nov 07, 2011 Jkt 226001 Investment Company Act of 1940.’’ The purpose of Form N–6F is to notify the Commission of a company’s intent to file a notification of election to become subject to Sections 55 through 65 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (‘‘1940 Act’’). Certain companies may have to make a filing with the Commission before they are ready to elect to be regulated as a business development company.1 A company that is excluded from the definition of ‘‘investment company’’ by Section 3(c)(1) because it has fewer than one hundred shareholders and is not making a public offering of its securities may lose such an exclusion solely because it proposes to make a public offering of securities as a business development company. Such company, under certain conditions, would not lose its exclusion if it notifies the Commission on Form N–6F of its intent to make an election to be regulated as a business development company. The company only has to file a Form N–6F once. The Commission estimates that on average approximately thirteen companies file these notifications each year. Each of those companies need only make a single filing of Form N–6F. The Commission further estimates that this information collection imposes burden of 0.5 hours, resulting in a total annual PRA burden of 6.5 hours. Based on the estimated wage rate, the total cost to the industry of the hour burden for complying with Form N–6F would be approximately $2,080.00. The collection of information under Form N–6F is mandatory. The information provided under the form is not kept confidential.

(the ‘‘Investment Company Act’’), certain investment companies can elect to be regulated as business development companies, as defined in Section 2(a)(48) of the Investment Company Act (15 U.S.C. 80a–2(a)(48)).

Commission, Office of Investor Education and Advocacy, Washington, DC 
20549-0213.

Extension:
    Form N-6F; SEC File No. 270-185; OMB Control No. 3235-0238.

    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 a request for extension of the previously approved 
collection of information discussed below.
    The title for the collection of information is ``Form N-6F (17 CFR 
274.15), Notice of Intent to Elect to be Subject to Sections 55 through 
65 of the Investment Company Act of 1940.'' The purpose of Form N-6F is 
to notify the Commission of a company's intent to file a notification 
of election to become subject to Sections 55 through 65 of the 
Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et seq.) (``1940 
Act''). Certain companies may have to make a filing with the Commission 
before they are ready to elect to be regulated as a business 
development company.\1\ A company that is excluded from the definition 
of ``investment company'' by Section 3(c)(1) because it has fewer than 
one hundred shareholders and is not making a public offering of its 
securities may lose such an exclusion solely because it proposes to 
make a public offering of securities as a business development company. 
Such company, under certain conditions, would not lose its exclusion if 
it notifies the Commission on Form N-6F of its intent to make an 
election to be regulated as a business development company. The company 
only has to file a Form N-6F once.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ A company might not be prepared to elect to be subject to 
Sections 55 through 65 of the 1940 Act because its capital structure 
or management compensation plan is not yet in compliance with the 
requirements of those sections.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission estimates that on average approximately thirteen 
companies file these notifications each year. Each of those companies 
need only make a single filing of Form N-6F. The Commission further 
estimates that this information collection imposes burden of 0.5 hours, 
resulting in a total annual PRA burden of 6.5 hours. Based on the 
estimated wage rate, the total cost to the industry of the hour burden 
for complying with Form N-6F would be approximately $2,080.00.
    The collection of information under Form N-6F is mandatory. The 
information provided under the form is not kept confidential. An agency 
may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, 
a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB 
control number.
    The public may view the background documentation for this 
information collection at the following Web site, http://www.reginfo.gov. Comments should be directed to: (i) Desk Officer for 
the Securities and Exchange Commission, Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10102, New 
Executive Office Building, Washington, DC 20503, or by sending an email 
to: Shagufta_Ahmed@omb.eop.gov; and (ii) Thomas Bayer, Director/Chief

email to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov. Comments must be submitted to OMB 
within 30 days of this notice.
