Download as PDF 69768 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 217 / Tuesday, November 10, 2015 / Notices 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to the Exchange and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6(b) of the Act.5 Specifically, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 6 requirements that the rules of an exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, 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. Additionally, the Exchange believes the proposed rule change is consistent with the Section 6(b)(5) 7 requirement that the rules of an exchange not be designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers, or dealers. In particular, the current filing proposes to change the name ‘‘Google, Inc.’’ to ‘‘Alphabet, Inc.’’ in order to reflect the new ownership structure and is consistent with the Act because Rule 5.5.22 will now accurately reflect the name of this class that is eligible for Mini-options trading. B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES CBOE does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed change does not impose any burden on intramarket competition because it applies to all Trading Permit Holders. There is no burden on intermarket competition as the proposed change would update Rule 5.5.22 to reflect the new name for a class that is eligible for Mini-options trading. As a result, there would be no substantive changes to the Exchange’s operations or its rules. C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others The Exchange neither solicited nor received comments on the proposed rule change. 5 15 6 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). IV.

Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Jkt 238001 For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.10 Brent J. Fields, Secretary.

Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: A. Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; B. impose any significant burden on competition; and C. become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 8 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 9 thereunder.
