Proposed Collection; Comment Request 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 the request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. Form F–4 (17 CFR 239.34) is used by foreign issuers to register securities in business combinations, reorganizations and exchange offers pursuant to federal securities laws pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a et seq.). The information collected is intended to ensure that the information required to be filed by the Commission permits verification of compliance with securities law requirements and assures the public availability of such information. The information provided is mandatory and all information is made available to the public upon request. Form F–4 takes approximately 1,457 hours per response and is filed by approximately 68 respondents. We estimate that 25% of the 1,457 hours per response (364.25 hours) is prepared by the registrant for a total annual reporting burden of 24,769 hours (364.25 hours per response × 68 responses). 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 control number. The public may view the background documentation for this information collection at the following Web site, www.reginfo.gov .

The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. Rule 30b1–5 (17 CFR 270.30b1–5) under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a–1 et seq.) (the ‘‘Investment Company Act’’) requires registered management investment companies, other than small business investment companies registered on Form N–5 (17 CFR 239.24 and 274.5) (‘‘funds’’), to file a quarterly report via the Commission’s EDGAR system on Form N–Q (17 CFR 249.332 and 274.130), not more than sixty calendar days after the close of each first and third fiscal quarter, containing their complete portfolio holdings. The purpose of the collection of information required by rule 30b1–5 is to meet the disclosure requirements of the Investment Company Act and to provide investors with information necessary to evaluate an interest in the fund by improving the transparency of information about the fund’s portfolio holdings. The Commission estimates that there are 2,460 management investment PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 companies, with a total of approximately 9,640 portfolios that are governed by the rule.

The collection of information under rule 30b1–5 is mandatory. The information provided under rule 30b1– 5 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.

    Rule 30b1-5, OMB Control No. 3235-0577, SEC File No. 270-520.

    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 (the ``Commission'') is soliciting comments on the 
collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to 
submit this existing collection of information to the Office of 
Management and Budget (``OMB'') for extension and approval.
    Rule 30b1-5 (17 CFR 270.30b1-5) under the Investment Company Act of 
1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1 et seq.) (the ``Investment Company Act'') 
requires registered management investment companies, other than small 
business investment companies registered on Form N-5 (17 CFR 239.24 and 
274.5) (``funds''), to file a quarterly report via the Commission's 
EDGAR system on Form N-Q (17 CFR 249.332 and 274.130), not more than 
sixty calendar days after the close of each first and third fiscal 
quarter, containing their complete portfolio holdings. The purpose of 
the collection of information required by rule 30b1-5 is to meet the 
disclosure requirements of the Investment Company Act and to provide 
investors with information necessary to evaluate an interest in the 
fund by improving the transparency of information about the fund's 
portfolio holdings.
    The Commission estimates that there are 2,460 management investment 
companies, with a total of approximately 9,640 portfolios that are 
governed by the rule. For purposes of this analysis, the burden 
associated with the requirements of rule 30b1-5 has been included in 
the collection of information requirements of Form N-Q, rather than the 
rule.
    The collection of information under rule 30b1-5 is mandatory. The 
information provided under rule 30b1-5 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.
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) 
ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including through the use of automated collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will 
be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 
days of this publication.
