On March 13, 2017, the New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’ or the ‘‘Exchange’’) 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 to amend Section 102.01B of the Manual to modify the provisions relating to the qualification of companies listing without a prior Exchange Act registration and an underwritten offering to permit the listing of such companies immediately upon effectiveness of an Exchange Act registration statement without a concurrent public offering registered under the Securities Act of 1933 provided the company meets all other listing requirements. The proposal also would eliminate the requirement to have a private placement market trading price if there is a valuation from an independent third-party of $250 million in market value of publicly-held shares. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on March 31, 2017.3 The Commission received no comments on the proposed rule change. Section 19(b)(2) of the Act 4 provides that, within 45 days of the publication of the notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The Commission is extending this 45-day time period. The Commission finds that it is appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the proposed rule change. Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,5 designates June 29, 2017, as the date by which the Commission should approve, disapprove, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove the proposed rule change (File No. SR– NYSE–2017–12).

The Exchange has designated this rule change as ‘‘non-controversial’’ under Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 6 and provided the Commission with the notice required by Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.7 The text of the proposed rule change is available at the Exchange’s Web site at www.iextrading.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 the 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 these statement may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 1. Purpose The purpose of this proposed rule filing is to correct an inadvertent incorrect internal cross reference in Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B). Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B) specifies that ‘‘FINRA Rules 5320, 7440, and 7450 shall be construed as references to IEX Rules 10.6, 11.420(d), and 11.420(e), respectively.’’ Due to a typographical error, the rule references IEX Rule 10.6 (which does not exist) rather than IEX Rule 10.160. Because of the reference to FINRA Rule 5320, IEX does not believe that the incorrect cross reference resulted in any confusion among IEX Members. 2. Statutory Basis IEX believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 6(b) 8 of the Act in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act 9 in particular, in that it is designed to prevent fraudulent and 5 17 CRF 240.19b–4.

The Exchange believes it is consistent with the Act to correct the incorrect cross reference so that IEX’s rules are accurate, avoiding any potential confusion among Members. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition IEX does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange believes that the proposed correction does not impact competition in any respect since it is designed to correct a typographical error. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others Written comments were neither solicited nor received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The Exchange has designated this rule filing as non-controversial under Section 19(b)(3)(A) 10 of the Act and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 11 thereunder. Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 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)(iii) of the Act 12 and subparagraph (f)(6) Rule 19b–4 thereunder.13 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 14 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 15 permits the Commission to 10 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 12 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). 13 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) requires the Exchange to give the Commission written notice of the Exchange’s intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and text of the proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. The Exchange has satisfied this requirement. 14 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 15 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 11 17 PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 22867 designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay to allow it to immediately correct an inadvertent typographical error in its rules. The Commission believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because it will, without undue delay, eliminate potential confusion caused by the incorrect reference in Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B) to an IEX rule that does not exist, and the proposed change does not introduce or raise any new or novel issues. Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the 30-day operative delay and designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.16 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings under Section 19(b)(2)(B) 17 of the Act to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved. IV. Solicitation of Comments Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views and arguments concerning the foregoing, including whether the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act. Comments may be submitted by any of the following methods: Electronic Comments • Use the Commission’s Internet comment form (http://www.sec.gov/ rules/sro.shtml); or • Send an email to rule-comments@ sec.gov.

incorrect internal cross reference in Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B). The

Web site at www.iextrading.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 the 
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 these statement may be examined at 
the places specified in Item IV below. The self-regulatory organization 
has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the 
most significant aspects of such statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and the 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The purpose of this proposed rule filing is to correct an 
inadvertent incorrect internal cross reference in Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B). 
Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B) specifies that ``FINRA Rules 5320, 7440, and 7450 
shall be construed as references to IEX Rules 10.6, 11.420(d), and 
11.420(e), respectively.'' Due to a typographical error, the rule 
references IEX Rule 10.6 (which does not exist) rather than IEX Rule 
10.160. Because of the reference to FINRA Rule 5320, IEX does not 
believe that the incorrect cross reference resulted in any confusion 
among IEX Members.
2. Statutory Basis
    IEX believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
provisions of Section 6(b) \8\ of the Act in general, and furthers the 
objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act \9\ in particular, in that it 
is designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, 
to promote just and equitable principles of trade, 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 it is consistent with the Act to 
correct the incorrect cross reference so that IEX's rules are accurate, 
avoiding any potential confusion among Members.

    \9\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    IEX does not believe that the proposed rule change will result in 
any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange believes that the 
proposed correction does not impact competition in any respect since it 
is designed to correct a typographical error.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    Written comments were neither solicited nor received.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    The Exchange has designated this rule filing as non-controversial 
under Section 19(b)(3)(A) \10\ of the Act and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \11\ 
thereunder. Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
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)(iii) of the Act \12\ and 
subparagraph (f)(6) Rule 19b-4 thereunder.\13\

    \13\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) 
requires the Exchange to give the Commission written notice of the 
Exchange's intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a 
brief description and text of the proposed rule change, at least 
five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule 
change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission. The 
Exchange has satisfied this requirement.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \14\ normally 
does not become operative for 30 days after the date of filing. 
However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \15\ permits the Commission to designate 
a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange has requested that the 
Commission waive the 30-day operative delay to allow it to immediately 
correct an inadvertent typographical error in its rules. The Commission 
believes that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is consistent with 
the protection of investors and the public interest because it will, 
without undue delay, eliminate potential confusion caused by the 
incorrect reference in Rule 11.420(d)(2)(B) to an IEX rule that does 
not exist, and the proposed change does not introduce or raise any new 
or novel issues. Therefore, the Commission hereby waives the 30-day 
operative delay and designates the proposed rule change operative upon 
filing.\16\

the Commission also has considered the proposed rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C.
