I. Introduction On October 13, 2016, Bats BZX Exchange, Inc. (‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘BZX’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 a proposed rule change related to the Exchange’s reopening process following a trading halt declared pursuant to the National Market System Plan to Address Extraordinary Market Volatility (‘‘Plan’’). The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on November 1, 2016.3 On December 14, 2016, the Commission extended the time period within which to approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change to January 30, 2017.4 On January 24, 2017, the Exchange filed Amendment No. 1 to the proposed rule change.5 The Commission received no 1 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79162 (October 26, 2016), 81 FR 75875 (‘‘Notice’’). 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79552, 81 FR 92928 (December 20, 2016). 5 In Amendment No. 1, the Exchange stated that it anticipates implementing the proposed rule change in the second half of 2017, and most likely within the third quarter, assuming the Securities Information Processors have implemented their changes and the other primary listing exchanges are able to implement their proposed rule changes simultaneously with the Exchange. The Exchange also updated the text of BZX Rule 11.23(d)(2)(E) to reflect the changes made by SR–BatsBZX–2016–81. See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 79467 (December 5, 2016), 81 FR 89176 (December 9, 2016). The Exchange stated that the changes from SR–BatsBZX–2016–81 do not impact the same language as the current proposal and do not conflict with the current proposal. Because Amendment No. 1 does not materially alter the substance of the proposed rule change or raise unique or novel regulatory issues, Amendment No. 1 is not subject to notice and comment. Amendment No. 1 is available at: https://www.sec.gov/comments/srbatsbzx-2016-61/batsbzx201661.htm. 2 17 E:\FR\FM\01FEN1.SGM 01FEN1
