Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, FINRA 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. FINRA 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 FINRA proposes to amend FINRA Rule 6433 (Minimum Quotation Size Requirements for OTC Equity Securities) (the ‘‘Rule’’) to extend, until June 7, 2018, the amendments set forth in File No. SR–FINRA–2011–058 (‘‘Tier Size Pilot’’ or ‘‘Pilot’’), which currently are scheduled to expire on December 8, 2017.4 The Tier Size Pilot was filed with the SEC on October 6, 2011,5 to amend the minimum quotation sizes (or ‘‘tier sizes’’) for OTC Equity Securities.6 The goals of the Pilot were to simplify the tier structure, facilitate the display of customer limit orders, and expand the scope of the Rule to apply to additional quoting participants. During the course of the Pilot, FINRA collected and provided to the SEC specified data with which to assess the impact of the Pilot tiers on market quality and limit order display.7 On September 13, 2013, FINRA provided to the Commission an assessment on the operation of the Tier Size Pilot utilizing data covering the period from November 12, 2012 through June 30, 2013.8 As noted in the 2013 Assessment, FINRA believed that the 4 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 80727 (May 18, 2017), 82 FR 23953 (May 24, 2017) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of File No. SR–FINRA–2017–014). 5 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 65568 (October 14, 2011), 76 FR 65307 (October 20, 2011) (Notice of Filing of File No. SR–FINRA–2011–058). 6 ‘‘OTC Equity Security’’ means any equity security that is not an ‘‘NMS stock’’ as that term is defined in Rule 600(b)(47) of SEC Regulation NMS; provided, however, that the term OTC Equity Security shall not include any Restricted Equity Security. See FINRA Rule 6420. 7 FINRA ceased collecting Pilot data for submission to the Commission on February 13, 2015. 8 The assessment is part of the SEC’s comment file for SR–FINRA–2011–058 and also is available on FINRA’s Web site at: http://www.finra.org/Industry/ Regulation/RuleFilings/2011/P124615 (‘‘Pilot Assessment’’). PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 analysis of the data generally showed that the Tier Size Pilot had a neutral to positive impact on OTC market quality for the majority of OTC Equity Securities and tiers; and that there was an overall increase of 13% in the number of customer limit orders that met the minimum quotation sizes to be eligible for display under the Pilot tiers. In the 2013 Assessment, FINRA recommended adopting the tiers as permanent, but extended the Pilot period to allow more time to gather and analyze data after the November 12, 2012 through June 30, 2013 assessment period.9 The purpose of this filing is to further extend the operation of the Tier Size Pilot until June 7, 2018, to provide additional time to finalize a permanent proposal with regard to the Tier Size Pilot.10 FINRA has filed the proposed rule change for immediate effectiveness. The operative date of the proposed rule change will be December 8, 2017. 2. Statutory Basis FINRA believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,11 which requires, among other things, that FINRA rules must be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. FINRA also believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(11) of the Act.12 Section 15A(b)(11) requires that FINRA rules include provisions governing the form and content of quotations relating to securities sold otherwise than on a national securities exchange which may be distributed or published by any member or person associated with a member, and the persons to whom such quotations may be supplied. FINRA believes that the extension of the Tier Size Pilot until June 7, 2018, is consistent with the Act in that it would provide the Commission and FINRA with additional time to finalize a proposal with regard to the Tier Size Pilot. 9 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 70839 (November 8, 2013), 78 FR 68893 (November 15, 2013) (Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of File No. SR–FINRA–2013–049). 10 FINRA reviewed the post-June 30, 2013 data, and stated that the impact described in the 2013 Assessment continued to hold (and improved in certain areas). See June 2016 Extension. 11 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(6). 12 15 U.S.C. 78o–3(b)(11). E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 227 / Tuesday, November 28, 2017 / Notices B. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Burden on Competition FINRA 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. 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 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) of the Act 13 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.14 A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 15 normally does not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. However, pursuant to Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii),16 the Commission may designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Commission is waiving the 30day operative delay so that the proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Commission believes that waiver of the operative delay is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because such waiver will allow the pilot program to continue without interruption. Therefore, the Commission designates the proposal operative upon filing.17 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 13 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A). CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule change. 15 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6). 16 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 17 For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation.

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
    FINRA proposes to amend FINRA Rule 6433 (Minimum Quotation Size 
Requirements for OTC Equity Securities) (the ``Rule'') to extend, until 
June 7, 2018, the amendments set forth in File No. SR-FINRA-2011-058 
(``Tier Size Pilot'' or ``Pilot''), which currently are scheduled to 
expire on December 8, 2017.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 80727 (May 18, 
2017), 82 FR 23953 (May 24, 2017) (Notice of Filing and Immediate 
Effectiveness of File No. SR-FINRA-2017-014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Tier Size Pilot was filed with the SEC on October 6, 2011,\5\ 
to amend the minimum quotation sizes (or ``tier sizes'') for OTC Equity 
Securities.\6\ The goals of the Pilot were to simplify the tier 
structure, facilitate the display of customer limit orders, and expand 
the scope of the Rule to apply to additional quoting participants. 
During the course of the Pilot, FINRA collected and provided to the SEC 
specified data with which to assess the impact of the Pilot tiers on 
market quality and limit order display.\7\ On September 13, 2013, FINRA 
provided to the Commission an assessment on the operation of the Tier 
Size Pilot utilizing data covering the period from November 12, 2012 
through June 30, 2013.\8\ As noted in the 2013 Assessment, FINRA 
believed that the analysis of the data generally showed that the Tier 
Size Pilot had a neutral to positive impact on OTC market quality for 
the majority of OTC Equity Securities and tiers; and that there was an 
overall increase of 13% in the number of customer limit orders that met 
the minimum quotation sizes to be eligible for display under the Pilot 
tiers. In the 2013 Assessment, FINRA recommended adopting the tiers as 
permanent, but extended the Pilot period to allow more time to gather 
and analyze data after the November 12, 2012 through June 30, 2013 
assessment period.\9\ The purpose of this filing is to further extend 
the operation of the Tier Size Pilot until June 7, 2018, to provide 
additional time to finalize a permanent proposal with regard to the 
Tier Size Pilot.\10\

Security shall not include any Restricted Equity Security. See FINRA 
Rule 6420.
    \7\ FINRA ceased collecting Pilot data for submission to the 
Commission on February 13, 2015.

    \10\ FINRA reviewed the post-June 30, 2013 data, and stated that 
the impact described in the 2013 Assessment continued to hold (and 
improved in certain areas). See June 2016 Extension.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FINRA has filed the proposed rule change for immediate 
effectiveness. The operative date of the proposed rule change will be 
December 8, 2017.
2. Statutory Basis
    FINRA believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with the 
provisions of Section 15A(b)(6) of the Act,\11\ which requires, among 
other things, that FINRA rules must be designed to prevent fraudulent 
and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable 
principles of trade, and, in general, to protect investors and the 
public interest. FINRA also believes that the proposed rule change is 
consistent with the provisions of Section 15A(b)(11) of the Act.\12\ 
Section 15A(b)(11) requires that FINRA rules include provisions 
governing the form and content of quotations relating to securities 
sold otherwise than on a national securities exchange which may be 
distributed or published by any member or person associated with a 
member, and the persons to whom such quotations may be supplied.

    FINRA believes that the extension of the Tier Size Pilot until June 
7, 2018, is consistent with the Act in that it would provide the 
Commission and FINRA with additional time to finalize a proposal with 
regard to the Tier Size Pilot.

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

    FINRA 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.

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

    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) of the Act \13\ and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6) thereunder.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \14\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b-
4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written 
notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a 
brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least 
five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule 
change.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \15\ normally 
does not become operative prior to 30 days after the date of filing. 
However, pursuant to Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii),\16\ the Commission may 
designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the 
protection of investors and the public interest.

    \16\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission is waiving the 30-day operative delay so that the 
proposal may become operative immediately upon filing. The Commission 
believes that waiver of the operative delay is consistent with the 
protection of investors and the public interest because such waiver 
will allow the pilot program to continue without interruption. 
Therefore, the Commission designates the proposal operative upon 
filing.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ For purposes only of waiving the 30-day operative delay, 
the Commission has considered the proposed rule's impact on 
efficiency, competition, and capital formation. See 15 U.S.C. 
78c(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 to 
determine whether the proposed rule 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
