II.

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 continue its Priority Customer Rebate Program (the ‘‘Program’’) on an ongoing basis beyond the current expiration date of December 31, 2013. The Program currently applies to the period beginning December 1, 2013 and ending December 31, 2013.3 The Program is based on the substantially similar fees of another competing options exchange.4 Under the Program, the Exchange shall credit each Member the per contract amount set forth in the table below resulting from each Priority Customer 5 order transmitted by that Member which is executed on the Exchange in all multiply-listed option classes (excluding mini-options and executions related to contracts that are routed to one or more exchanges in connection with the Options Order Protection and Locked/Crossed Market Plan referenced in Rule 1400), provided the Member meets certain volume thresholds in a month as described below. The volume thresholds are calculated based on the customer average daily volume over the course of the month. Volume will be recorded for and credits will be delivered to the Member Firm that submits the order to the Exchange. Percentage thresholds of national customer volume in multiply-listed options classes listed on MIAX (monthly) ehiers on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 0.00%–0.25% ....................................................................................................................................................................... Above 0.25%–0.35% ........................................................................................................................................................... Above 0.35%–0.75% ........................................................................................................................................................... Above 0.75%–1.50% ........................................................................................................................................................... Above 1.50% ....................................................................................................................................................................... The Exchange will aggregate the contracts resulting from Priority Customer orders transmitted and executed electronically on the Exchange from affiliated Members for purposes of the thresholds above, provided there is at least 75% common ownership between the firms as reflected on each firm’s Form BD, Schedule A. In the event of a MIAX System outage or other interruption of electronic trading on MIAX, the Exchange will adjust the national customer volume in multiplylisted options for the duration of the outage. A Member may request to 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 71009 (December 6, 2013), 78 FR 75629 (December 12, 2013) (SR–MIAX–2013–56). 2 17 VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:55 Jan 15, 2014 Jkt 232001 Per contract credit $0.00 0.10 0.15 0.17 0.18 receive its credit under the Priority Customer Rebate Program as a separate direct payment. In addition, the rebate payments will be calculated from the first executed contract at the applicable threshold per contract credit with the rebate payments made at the highest achieved volume tier for each contract traded in that month. For example, if Member Firm XYZ, Inc. (‘‘XYZ’’) has enough Priority Customer contracts to achieve 2.5% of the national customer volume in multiply-listed option contracts during the month of October, XYZ will receive a credit of $0.18 for each Priority Customer contract executed in the month of October. The purpose of the Program is to encourage Members to direct greater Priority Customer trade volume to the Exchange. Increased Priority Customer volume will provide for greater liquidity, which benefits all market participants. The practice of incentivizing increased retail customer order flow in order to attract professional liquidity providers (Market-Makers) is, and has been, commonly practiced in the options 4 See Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (‘‘CBOE’’) Fees Schedule, p. 4.
