Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Notices similarly does not do so and instead provides that its sole stockholder nominates and elects its non-fair representation directors.12 Other Exchanges also provide that their Board, without input from a nominating committee, appoint members to committees.13 The Exchange also believes that since it is being proposed that the sole stockholder have the authority to nominate (and elect) directors to the Board (and accept and elect Representative Director nominees), it is also consistent to transfer the authority to fill director vacancies from the Board to the sole stockholder. The Exchange importantly notes that it is not proposing to amend any of the compositional requirements currently set forth in the Bylaws and that notwithstanding the proposed changes, existing compositional requirements of the Exchange will still be required to be satisfied, including the provision relating to the fair representation of members. While the delegation of the authority relating to the (i) nomination and election of directors, (ii) nominating body for Representative Directors, (iii) filling of Director vacancies and (iv) appointment of committees is being modified, the substantive practices of the Exchange will remain the same. For example, the sole stockholder will be bound to nominate and elect the Representative Directors nominees recommended by the Representative Director Nominating Body or, in the event of a petition candidate, the Representative Director nominees who receive the most votes pursuant to a Run-off Election. Lastly, the Exchange believes the clarifying changes to the Exchange’s Certificate, including updating the Exchange’s name in the title and signature line, allows the Exchange to comply with Delaware law and reduce potential confusion. The alleviation of confusion removes impediments to, and perfects the mechanism for a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, protects investors and the public interest of market participants. The Exchange believes the proposed changes do not affect the meaning, administration, or enforcement of any rules of the Exchange or the rights, obligations, or privileges of Exchange members or their associated persons is any way. 12 See Section 3.02 of the Amended and Restated NYSE Arca, Inc.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange 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 statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange 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 Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES 1. Purpose Last year the Exchange filed to delay the implementation of the Directed Order functionality in conjunction with a replatform to INET.4 INET is the proprietary core technology utilized across Nasdaq’s global markets and utilized on The Nasdaq Options Market LLC (‘‘NOM’’), Nasdaq PHLX LLC (‘‘Phlx’’) and Nasdaq BX, Inc. (‘‘BX’’) (collectively, ‘‘Nasdaq Exchanges’’). ISE was migrated to INET technology in 2017. With the migration, ISE delayed the implementation of the Directed Order functionality to stage the replatform to provide maximum benefit to its Members while also ensuring a successful rollout. At that time, the Exchange noted that the Exchange will introduce the Directed Order functionality within one year from the date of this filing, otherwise the Exchange will file a rule proposal with the Commission to remove these rules. The Exchange filed the initial rule 3 A ‘‘Directed Order’’ is an order routed from an Electronic Access Member to an Exchange market maker through the Exchange’s System. 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 80100 (February 24, 2017), 82 FR 12269 (March 1, 2017) (SR–ISE–2017–15).

If the Exchange determines to offer this functionality at a later date a rule proposal will be filed at that time. 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,6 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,7 in particular, in that it is designed 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 because the Exchange will remove rule text related to functionality which will not be offered on ISE. The current rule text indicates the functionality is not offered today. The Exchange believes that removing Rule 811 from the Rulebook will avoid confusion as to whether this functionality will be enabled in the future. B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intra-market competition because the Exchange is not offering this functionality today and believes there is no interest among Members for this functionality. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others No written comments were either solicited or received. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action 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 8 and 5 Id. 6 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).

If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule should be approved or disapproved. IV.

Additionally, the Exchange proposes to amend the name of the Regulatory Oversight and Compliance Committee (‘‘ROCC’’) and make other technical, non-substantive changes.

Section 4.3 of the Bylaws also provides that the N&G Committee shall have the authority to nominate individuals for election as directors of the Corporation and such other duties as prescribed by resolution of the Board.3 Additionally, if the N&G Committee has two or more Industry Directors, those Industry Directors shall act as the Representative Director Nominating Body, which body is responsible for the nomination of the 3 Article Fifth, subparagraph (c) of the Certificate also provides that the N&G Committee nominates persons for election as directors. 1 15 VerDate Sep<11>2014 II.

If however, there are less than two Industry Directors on the N&G Committee, then the Trading Permit Holder Subcommittee of the Advisory Board shall act as the Representative Director Nominating Body.4 The N&G Committee is bound to accept and nominate the Representative Director nominees recommended by the Representative Director Nominating Body or, in the event of a petition candidate, the Representative Director nominees who receive the most votes pursuant to a Run-off Election.5 Pursuant to Section 3.1 of the Bylaws, the N&G Committee is also responsible for determining whether a director candidate satisfies the applicable qualifications for election as a director, and the decision of the N&G Committee, subject to review, if any, by the Board, is final. The Exchange first proposes to eliminate its N&G Committee and amend the process by which Directors are nominated and elected. Specifically, the Exchange proposes to provide that the sole stockholder of the exchange shall nominate and elect directors for nomination at the annual meeting of the stockholder, except with respect to fairrepresentation directors (‘‘Representative Directors’’) as described below. The Exchange notes that another Exchange similarly does not maintain an exchange-level nominating committee and instead provides that the sole stockholder of the Exchange nominates and elects their non-fair representation Directors.6 With respect to the nomination of Representative Directors, the Exchange proposes to amend the definition of ‘‘Representative Director Nominating Body’’ and provide that if the Board has two or more Industry Directors, excluding directors that are exchange employees, those Industry Directors shall act as the Representative Director Nominating Body. Additionally, similar to today’s practice, if there are less than two Industry Directors on the Board (excluding directors that are employees of the Exchange), then the Trading Permit Holder Subcommittee of the Advisory Board shall act as the Representative Director Nominating Body. The Bylaws and Certificate will also be amended to provide that the sole stockholder is bound to nominate and elect the Representative Directors 4 See Sections 1.1(k) and 4.3 of the Bylaws. Section 3.2 of the Bylaws sets forth a detailed process for the nomination and selection of fair representation directors for the Board of Directors. 5 See Sections 3.1 and 3.2 of the Bylaws and Article Fifth, subparagraph (c) of the Certificate. 6 See Section 3.02 of the Amended and Restated NYSE Arca, Inc.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of Substance 
of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to remove Directed Order \3\ functionality on 
ISE.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ A ``Directed Order'' is an order routed from an Electronic 
Access Member to an Exchange market maker through the Exchange's 
System.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's 
Web site at http://ise.cchwallstreet.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 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange 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 statements may be examined at the places specified in 
Item IV below. The Exchange 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 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    Last year the Exchange filed to delay the implementation of the 
Directed Order functionality in conjunction with a replatform to 
INET.\4\ INET is the proprietary core technology utilized across 
Nasdaq's global markets and utilized on The Nasdaq Options Market LLC 
(``NOM''), Nasdaq PHLX LLC (``Phlx'') and Nasdaq BX, Inc. (``BX'') 
(collectively, ``Nasdaq Exchanges''). ISE was migrated to INET 
technology in 2017. With the migration, ISE delayed the implementation 
of the Directed Order functionality to stage the re-platform to provide 
maximum benefit to its Members while also ensuring a successful 
rollout. At that time, the Exchange noted that the Exchange will 
introduce the Directed Order functionality within one year from the 
date of this filing, otherwise the Exchange will file a rule proposal 
with the Commission to remove these rules. The Exchange filed the 
initial rule change on February 23, 2017.\5\ The Exchange has 
determined at this time not to offer Directed Order functionality. If 
the Exchange determines to offer this functionality at a later date a 
rule proposal will be filed at that time.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 80100 (February 24, 
2017), 82 FR 12269 (March 1, 2017) (SR-ISE-2017-15).
    \5\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Statutory Basis
    The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 
6(b) of the Act,\6\ in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 
6(b)(5) of the Act,\7\ in particular, in that it is designed 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 
because the Exchange will remove rule text related to functionality 
which will not be offered on ISE. The current rule text indicates the 
functionality is not offered today. The Exchange believes that removing 
Rule 811 from the Rulebook will avoid confusion as to whether this 
functionality will be enabled in the future.

    \7\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
impose any burden on competition not necessary or appropriate in 
furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The Exchange does not believe 
that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on intra-market 
competition because the Exchange is not offering this functionality 
today and believes there is no interest among Members for this 
functionality.

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

    No written comments were either solicited or received.

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

    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 \8\ and 
subparagraph (f)(6) of Rule 19b-4 thereunder.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii).
    \9\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). In addition, Rule 19b-4(f)(6) 
requires a self-regulatory organization to give the Commission 
written notice of its intent to file 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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: (i) 
Necessary or appropriate in the public interest; (ii) for the 
protection of investors; or (iii) otherwise in furtherance of the 
purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the 
Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the 
proposed rule should be approved or disapproved.
