[Release No. 34–72857; File No. SR– NYSEMKT–2014–68] A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change Self-Regulatory Organizations; NYSE MKT LLC; Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of Proposed Rule Change Amending Section 332 of the NYSE MKT Company Guide To Provide That Listed Companies Should Pay Listing Fees Due in Connection With the Listing of Additional Securities in the Manner Specified in the Exchange’s Invoice August 18, 2014. Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) 1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) 2 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,3 notice is hereby given that on August 12, 2014, NYSE MKT LLC (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘NYSE MKT’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the self-regulatory organization. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend Section 332 of the NYSE MKT Company Guide (the [sic] Company Guide’’) to provide that listed companies should pay listing fees due in connection with the listing of additional securities in the manner specified in the Exchange’s invoice. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at www.nyse.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. 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 self-regulatory organization 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 those 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, U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). U.S.C. 78a. 3 17 CFR 240.19b–4. 1. Purpose The Exchange charges listed companies fees in connection with the listing of additional shares of a class of listed securities. The rates at which those fees are charged are established by Section 142 of the Company Guide. Section 332 of the Company guide specifies that the submission of a listing application in connection with the listing of additional securities must be accompanied by a check in the amount of the applicable listing fee pursuant to Section 142. The Exchange proposes to amend Section 332 to provide that, rather than having a listed company submit a check in connection with a listing application, the Exchange will send an invoice to the listed company upon receipt of the listing application. The invoice will specify the amount of the applicable listing fee and will provide instructions as to how the company should submit its payment. It is the Exchange’s expectation for the foreseeable future that its invoices will provide instructions for companies to submit payment by wire transfer. The Exchange wishes to make this change as a matter of internal administrative efficiency and to avoid any inconvenience to listed companies in the event that checks are lost. The Exchange does not believe that the change in policy will impose any significant additional burden on listed companies. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) 4 of the Act, in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,5 in particular in that it is designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to foster cooperation and coordination with persons engaged in regulating, clearing, settling, processing information with respect to, and facilitating transactions in securities, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes that the proposed amendment is consistent with the goal of Section 6(b)(5) to remove 1 15 2 15 VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:23 Aug 21, 2014 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 Frm 00071 Fmt 4703 4 15 5 15 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM U.S.C. 78f(b).
