The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 75630, 80 FR 48375 (Aug. 12, 2015).

In Amendment No. 1, the Exchange proposes to amend the minimum size requirements for the following: (1) Limit orders marked Start SNAP for securities that do not have a special minimum size requirement; and (2) SNAP AOO Orders for securities that do not have a special minimum size requirement. In the Exchange’s initial filing, it proposed tier-based minimum size requirements for Start SNAP and SNAP AOO Orders. See Notice, supra note 3, 80 FR 39174–75. In Amendment No. 1, the Exchange represents that it received feedback from certain Participants indicating that those tierbased minimum size requirements are counterintuitive and would unnecessarily complicate the programming of those Participants’ respective systems to automatically initiate and participate in SNAP Cycles. See Amendment No. 1, supra, at pg. 3. In response to that feedback, the Exchange states that it is proposing to simplify the minimum size requirements for Start SNAP and SNAP AOO Orders for securities without special minimum size requirements, as described below.
