Mires, Attorney, Federal Compliance. BILLING CODE 7710–FW–P 47541 Jkt 235001 [File No. 500–1] In the Matter of PDK Energy, Inc.; Order of Suspension of Trading August 5, 2015. PDK Energy, Inc. (CIK No. 0001497126) is a Mississippi corporation located in Ann Arbor, Michigan with a class of securities registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) pursuant to Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Exchange Act’’). PDK Energy, Inc. is delinquent in its periodic filings with the Commission, having not filed any periodic reports since it filed a Form 10–Q for the period ended April 30, 2013. On January 26, 2015, the Division of Corporation Finance sent PDK Energy, Inc. a delinquency letter requesting compliance with its periodic filing obligations, but the letter was returned because of PDK Energy, Inc.’s failure to maintain a valid address on file with the Commission. As of June 16, 2015, the company’s stock (symbol ‘‘PDKI’’) was quoted on OTC Link (previously, ‘‘Pink Sheets’’) operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc., had two market makers, and was eligible for the ‘‘piggyback’’ exception of Exchange Act Rule 15c2–11(f)(3). It appears to the Commission that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of PDK Energy, Inc. because it has not filed any periodic reports since its Form 10– Q for the period ended April 30, 2013. The Commission is of the opinion that the public interest and the protection of investors require a suspension of trading in the securities of PDK Energy, Inc. Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Exchange Act, that trading in the securities of PDK Energy, Inc. is suspended for the period from 9:30 a.m. EDT on August 5, 2015, through 11:59 p.m. EDT on August 18, 2015. PO 00000 Frm 00092 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Pursuant to Section 19(b)(7) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 notice is hereby given that on July 16, 2015 CBOE Futures Exchange, LLC (‘‘CFE’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘SEC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by CFE. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. CFE also has filed this proposed rule change with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (‘‘CFTC’’). CFE filed a written certification with the CFTC under Section 5c(c) of the Commodity Exchange Act (‘‘CEA’’) 2 on July 16, 2015. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Description of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend its rules related to disruptive trading practices. The scope of this filing is limited solely to the application of the rule amendments to security futures that are permitted for trading on CFE. The only security futures that previously traded on CFE were traded under Chapter 16 of CFE’s Rulebook, which is applicable to Individual Stock Based and Exchange-Traded Fund Based Volatility Index security futures. No security futures are currently listed for trading on CFE. The text of the proposed rule change is attached as Exhibit 4 to the filing but is not attached to the publication of this notice. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, CFE included statements concerning the 1 15 27 U.S.C. 78s(b)(7).
