Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on February 20, 2013, C2 Options Exchange, Incorporated (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘C2’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend its Fees Schedule. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site (http:// www.c2exchange.com/Legal/), at the Exchange’s Office of the Secretary, and at the Commission. 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 Exchange 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 these 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 aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Exchange proposes to amend its Fees Schedule with regard to the data reports it provides to Trading Permit Holders (‘‘TPHs’’), Options Clearing Company (‘‘OCC’’) firms and other interested parties at their requests. These persons and organizations often approach the Exchange and request that the Exchange prepare and provide various reports regarding their trading activity. The production of these reports sometimes requires that employees put in a significant amount of time and work to write and develop the programs necessary to be able to run or generate such reports. Currently, Section 9 of the Fees Schedule (‘‘Miscellaneous’’) merely states that ‘‘Ad Hoc Information Services Requests’’ are provided at production costs. The Exchange proposes to eliminate this statement and replace it with a more comprehensive, consistent and standard structure regarding the provision of Exchange data reports (including those being deleted). The Exchange proposes to establish three different tiers of data report requests. The first, most basic tier (referred to as ‘‘C Level’’ requests) will regard requests for standard reports regularly generated and run by the Exchange and made available on a daily, weekly or monthly basis (for example, Monthly LP Scorecard, Daily Firm E:\FR\FM\05MRN1.SGM 05MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 43 / Tuesday, March 5, 2013 / Notices emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Report, etc.) that do not require historical data generation, customization beyond a standard format (PDF, HTML, etc.) or distribution frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.), or specialized development. There will be no cost for such requests, regardless of whether they are one-time, initial, or daily, weekly, or monthly requests. The second tier (referred to as ‘‘B Level’’ requests) will regard initial report requests (or enhancements to existing report subscriptions) that require less than one (1) man-hour to develop and/or generate. The [sic] will be no cost for such requests. The third tier (referred to as ‘‘A Level’’ requests) will regard initial report requests (or enhancements to existing subscriptions) that require one (1) or more man-hours to develop and/or generate. The cost for such requests will be $100 for first 5 man-hours and $100 per hour for each additional man-hour. Fees for reports will be estimated in advance and such estimates will be provided to the requester. If the estimate changes once creation of the report begins, a revised estimate will be provided to the requester. For parties requesting to receive B or A Level reports on a recurring basis, subscriptions to such reports will be provided at a cost of $100 per month for monthly reports and $200 per month for daily or weekly reports. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.3 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,4 which requires that Exchange rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among its Trading Permit Holders and other persons using its facilities. The Exchange believes that the proposed new fee structure for data reports is reasonable because it is designed to reflect the Exchange’s costs in creating such reports. The Exchange believes that the proposed new fee structure for data reports is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory because it will apply to all requesting parties equally. The Exchange believes it is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess no fees for C Level reports because these are standard reports that do not require specific development, customization or 3 15 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). U.S.C. 78f(b)(4). VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:14 Mar 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 generation. The Exchange believes that it is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess no fees for initial B Level requests because these reports do not require very much (less than one man-hour) work on the Exchange’s part to create and produce. The Exchange believes that it is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess a fee of $100 for the first five man-hours of work for A Level requests because these reports take at least one man-hour of work on the Exchange’s part to develop and generate and the Exchange must begin to recoup the costs of such work, while still desiring to be able to provide requesting market participants with a reasonable amount of information to assist them. The Exchange believes that it is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess a fee of $100 per man-hour above five hours for A Level requests because such requests can take up a significant amount of Exchange resources and at this point the Exchange must begin to be more fullycompensated for dedicating resources to these tasks. The Exchange believes that it is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess subscription fees for requests for information on a more regular basis (as opposed to reassessing the initial fees) because the development for such work has already been done. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition C2 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. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed fees structure will impose an unnecessary burden on intramarket competition because it will apply equally to all requesting parties. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed fees structure will impose an unnecessary burden on intermarket competition because the Exchange is providing reports specific to activity on C2, and other exchanges may provide reports specific to activity on those exchanges, and the costs for development, generation and production of such reports may be different on those exchanges. Further, to the extent that the proposed fees structure for data reports may attract market participants on other exchanges to C2, such market participants can always elect to become C2 market participants.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 5 and paragraph (f) of Rule 19b–4 6 thereunder. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend 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.

Jkt 229001 PO 00000 Frm 00131 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Exchange, Inc. (collectively with NYSE, NYSE MKT, and Arca, the ‘‘Participants’’), filed with the Commission pursuant to Section 11A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),4 and Rule 608 thereunder,5 the Plan to create a market-wide limit uplimit down (‘‘LULD’’) mechanism that is intended to address extraordinary market volatility in NMS Stocks.6 The Plan sets forth procedures that provide for market-wide LULD requirements that would be designed to prevent trades in individual NMS Stocks from occurring outside of specified price bands. These LULD requirements would be coupled with trading pauses 7 to accommodate more fundamental price moves (as opposed to erroneous trades or momentary gaps in liquidity). The price bands would consist of a Lower Price Band (the ‘‘Lower Price Band’’) and an Upper Price Band (the ‘‘Upper Price Band’’—each a ‘‘Price Band’’ and, together with the Lower Price Band, the ‘‘Price Bands’’) for each NMS Stock. The Price Bands would be calculated by the Securities Information Processors (the ‘‘SIP’’ or ‘‘Processors’’) responsible for consolidation of information for an NMS Stock pursuant to Rule 603(b) of Regulation NMS under the Act.8 The Price Bands would be based on a Reference Price 9 that equals the arithmetic mean price of Eligible Reported Transactions 10 for the NMS Stock over the immediately preceding five-minute period. The Price Bands for an NMS Stock would be calculated by applying the Percentage Parameter 11 for 4 15 U.S.C. 78k–1. CFR 242.608. 6 See Letter from Janet M. McGinness, Senior Vice President, Legal and Corporate Secretary, NYSE Euronext, to Elizabeth M. Murphy, Secretary, Commission, dated April 5, 2011 (‘‘Transmittal Letter’’). The term ‘‘NMS Stock’’ shall have the meaning provided in Rule 600(b)(47) of Regulation NMS under the Act. 7 As defined in Section I(X) of the Plan. 8 17 CFR 242.603(b). 9 As defined in Section I(T) of the Plan. 10 As defined in the proposed Plan, Eligible Reported Transactions would have the meaning prescribed by the Operating Committee for the proposed Plan, and generally mean transactions that are eligible to update the sale price of an NMS Stock. 11 As initially proposed by the Participants, the Percentage Parameters for Tier 1 NMS Stocks (i.e., stocks in the S&P 500 Index or Russell 1000 Index and certain ETPs) with a Reference Price of $1.00 or more would be five percent and less than $1.00 would be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or (b) 75 percent. The Percentage Parameters for Tier 2 NMS Stocks (i.e., all NMS Stocks other than those in Tier 1) with a Reference Price of $1.00 or more would be 10 percent and less than $1.00 would be the lesser of (a) $0.15 or (b) 75 percent. The Percentage Parameters for a Tier 2 NMS Stock that is a leveraged ETP would be the applicable Percentage Parameter set forth above multiplied by the leverage ratio of such product.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to amend its Fees Schedule. The text of the 
proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's Web site (http://www.c2exchange.com/Legal/), at the Exchange's Office of the Secretary, 
and at the Commission.

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 Exchange 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 these 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 aspects of such 
statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Exchange proposes to amend its Fees Schedule with regard to the 
data reports it provides to Trading Permit Holders (``TPHs''), Options 
Clearing Company (``OCC'') firms and other interested parties at their 
requests. These persons and organizations often approach the Exchange 
and request that the Exchange prepare and provide various reports 
regarding their trading activity. The production of these reports 
sometimes requires that employees put in a significant amount of time 
and work to write and develop the programs necessary to be able to run 
or generate such reports. Currently, Section 9 of the Fees Schedule 
(``Miscellaneous'') merely states that ``Ad Hoc Information Services 
Requests'' are provided at production costs. The Exchange proposes to 
eliminate this statement and replace it with a more comprehensive, 
consistent and standard structure regarding the provision of Exchange 
data reports (including those being deleted).
    The Exchange proposes to establish three different tiers of data 
report requests. The first, most basic tier (referred to as ``C Level'' 
requests) will regard requests for standard reports regularly generated 
and run by the Exchange and made available on a daily, weekly or 
monthly basis (for example, Monthly LP Scorecard, Daily Firm

[[Page 14393]]

Report, etc.) that do not require historical data generation, 
customization beyond a standard format (PDF, HTML, etc.) or 
distribution frequency (daily, weekly, monthly, etc.), or specialized 
development. There will be no cost for such requests, regardless of 
whether they are one-time, initial, or daily, weekly, or monthly 
requests.
    The second tier (referred to as ``B Level'' requests) will regard 
initial report requests (or enhancements to existing report 
subscriptions) that require less than one (1) man-hour to develop and/
or generate. The [sic] will be no cost for such requests. The third 
tier (referred to as ``A Level'' requests) will regard initial report 
requests (or enhancements to existing subscriptions) that require one 
(1) or more man-hours to develop and/or generate. The cost for such 
requests will be $100 for first 5 man-hours and $100 per hour for each 
additional man-hour. Fees for reports will be estimated in advance and 
such estimates will be provided to the requester. If the estimate 
changes once creation of the report begins, a revised estimate will be 
provided to the requester. For parties requesting to receive B or A 
Level reports on a recurring basis, subscriptions to such reports will 
be provided at a cost of $100 per month for monthly reports and $200 
per month for daily or weekly reports.
2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with 
the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the 
Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the 
Act.\3\ Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is 
consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,\4\ which requires that 
Exchange rules provide for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, 
fees, and other charges among its Trading Permit Holders and other 
persons using its facilities. The Exchange believes that the proposed 
new fee structure for data reports is reasonable because it is designed 
to reflect the Exchange's costs in creating such reports. The Exchange 
believes that the proposed new fee structure for data reports is 
equitable and not unfairly discriminatory because it will apply to all 
requesting parties equally. The Exchange believes it is equitable and 
not unfairly discriminatory to assess no fees for C Level reports 
because these are standard reports that do not require specific 
development, customization or generation. The Exchange believes that it 
is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess no fees for 
initial B Level requests because these reports do not require very much 
(less than one man-hour) work on the Exchange's part to create and 
produce. The Exchange believes that it is equitable and not unfairly 
discriminatory to assess a fee of $100 for the first five man-hours of 
work for A Level requests because these reports take at least one man-
hour of work on the Exchange's part to develop and generate and the 
Exchange must begin to recoup the costs of such work, while still 
desiring to be able to provide requesting market participants with a 
reasonable amount of information to assist them. The Exchange believes 
that it is equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess a fee of 
$100 per man-hour above five hours for A Level requests because such 
requests can take up a significant amount of Exchange resources and at 
this point the Exchange must begin to be more fully-compensated for 
dedicating resources to these tasks. The Exchange believes that it is 
equitable and not unfairly discriminatory to assess subscription fees 
for requests for information on a more regular basis (as opposed to re-
assessing the initial fees) because the development for such work has 
already been done.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    C2 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. The Exchange does not believe 
that the proposed fees structure will impose an unnecessary burden on 
intramarket competition because it will apply equally to all requesting 
parties. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed fees structure 
will impose an unnecessary burden on intermarket competition because 
the Exchange is providing reports specific to activity on C2, and other 
exchanges may provide reports specific to activity on those exchanges, 
and the costs for development, generation and production of such 
reports may be different on those exchanges. Further, to the extent 
that the proposed fees structure for data reports may attract market 
participants on other exchanges to C2, such market participants can 
always elect to become C2 market participants.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the 
proposed rule change.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    The foregoing rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \5\ and paragraph (f) of Rule 19b-4 \6\ 
thereunder. At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed 
rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend 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. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission will institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or 
disapproved.
