The Exchange believes that Rule 6.10E, regarding ETP Holders Holding Options, addresses the same topic, and therefore Rule 424— Equities is no longer necessary for trading on the Pillar trading platform.6 The Exchange also proposes to delete Rule 438—Equities, which relates to participating in decimal conversion testing, because by its terms, as specified in Supplementary Material .30 to that rule, that rule has expired because decimal pricing has been fully implemented. The Exchange also proposes to delete Equities rules that are currently designated as ‘‘Reserved.’’ 7 The Exchange believes it would reduce confusion and promote transparency to delete references to rules that do not have any substantive content. The Exchange further believes that because it is transitioning to a new rule numbering framework for cash equities trading, maintaining these rules on a reserved basis is no longer necessary. 6 Current Rule 424—Equities is based on New York Stock Exchange LLC Rule 424 and has more detailed reporting requirements than Rule 6.10E. Current Rule 6.10E, which is based on NYSE Arca, Inc. Rule 11.24 (formerly, NYSE Arca Equities, Inc. Rule 6.10), sets forth the restrictions currently applicable on other exchanges relating to the purchase or sale of options that are not listed on the Options Clearing Corporation. See, e.g., CBOE BZX Exchange, Inc. Rule 12.10(a) (Options). To align the Exchange’s rules with those of other exchanges, the Exchange proposes to delete Rule 424—Equities. 7 See Rules 346- Equities (Deleted); Rules 348— Equities—349—Equities; Rule 350—Equities; Rule 351—Equities; Rule 352—Equities; Rule 354— Equities; Rules 355—Equities—374 Equities; Rules 376—Equities—381—Equities; Rule 382—Equities; Rules 383—Equities—386—Equities; Rules 389— Equities—391—Equities; Rule 392—Equities; Rules 393—Equities—Rule 400—Equities; Rule 401— Equities; Rule 401A—Equities; Rule 405—Equities; Rule 405A—Equities; 410A—Equities; Rule 413— Equities; Rule 414—Equities; Rule 415—Equities; Rule 417—Equities; Rule 418—Equities; Rule 419— Equities; Rule 420—Equities; Rule 421—Equities; Rule 423—Equities; Rules 425—Equities—429— Equities; 440D—Equities—440E—Equities; 440F— Equities; 440G—Equities; Rules 441—Equities— 444—Equities; Rule 445—Equities; Rule 446— Equities; Rules 447—Equities—449—Equities; Rules 461—Equities—464—Equities; Rules 498— Equities—499—Equities; Rules 526—Equities— 599—Equities; Rules 601—Equities—899—Equities; and Rules 908—Equities—999—Equities. The Exchange also proposes to delete references to the term ‘‘Reserved’’ that do not correlate to a current rule number. E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM 08DEN1 58038 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 235 / Friday, December 8, 2017 / Notices The Exchange also proposes a technical, non-substantive amendment to replace the term ‘‘Non-routable Limit Order’’ with the term ‘‘Non-Routable Limit Order’’ in Rules 7.31E(d)(1)(C), 7.31E(e)(1), 7.31E(j)(1), and 7.46E(f)(5)(F)(ii) and (iii). The Exchange believes that capitalizing the term ‘‘Routable’’ is more consistent with the naming methodology of other Exchange order types, such as the ‘‘Non-Displayed Limit Order,’’ as defined in Rule 7.31E(d)(1). 2. Statutory Basis The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’),8 in general, and furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5),9 in particular, because it is 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 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. The Exchange believes that its proposed rule change to eliminate rules that are not applicable to trading on Pillar would remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system because it would eliminate rules that are now obsolete or that do not have any substantive content. Eliminating obsolete rules would reduce potential confusion and add transparency and clarity to the Exchange’s rules, thereby ensuring that members, regulators, and the public can more easily navigate and understand the Exchange’s rulebook. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 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 that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed rule change is not intended to address any competitive issues, but rather it is designed to eliminate obsolete rules. C. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement on Comments on the Proposed Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the proposed rule change. III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for Commission Action The Exchange has filed the proposed rule change pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act 10 and Rule 19b–4(f)(6) thereunder.11 Because the 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 prior to 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, if consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act and Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) thereunder. A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b–4(f)(6) 12 normally does not become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing. However, Rule 19b– 4(f)(6)(iii) 13 permits the Commission to designate a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. The Exchange requests that the Commission waive the 30-day operative delay. The Commission notes that the Exchange represented that it has transitioned cash equities trading to the Pillar trading technology in July 2017. Therefore, the Exchange’s cash equities rules that govern floor-based trading are no longer in effect and are therefore obsolete. The Commission believes deleting Exchange rules that are no longer in effect and are obsolete would be consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest because it would reduce potential confusion and add transparency and clarity to NYSE American’s rules. Further, the Commission notes that Exchange Rule 438-Equities, related to participation in decimal conversion testing, is obsolete as decimal conversion has been completed. Finally, the Commission believes that the replacement of the term ‘‘Non-routable Limit Order’’ with the term ‘‘Non-Routable Limit Order’’ is a non-substantive change to conform the designation of the order type.

Accordingly, the Commission waives the 30-day operative delay and designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.14 At any time within 60 days of the filing of such 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) 15 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.

Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change Pursuant to the provisions of Section 19(b)(1) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),3 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,4 Investors Exchange LLC (‘‘IEX’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) is filing with the Commission proposed rule change to amend Rules 14.501(a)(4), 14.501(d), and 14.502(b) to modify the process IEX would follow when a company fails to hold an annual meeting of shareholders, and to correct three nonsubstantive typographical errors in Rules 14.502(b) and 14.504(b). The Exchange has designated this proposal as noncontroversial and provided the Commission with the notice required by Rule 19b–4(f)(6)(iii) under the Act.5 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 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 [sic] 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 Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose On June 17, 2016, the Commission granted IEX’s application for registration as a national securities exchange under Section 6 of the Act including approval of rules applicable to the qualification, listing and delisting of companies on the Exchange.6 The Exchange plans to begin listing companies in 2018. Each company that would list common stock or voting preferred stock, 3 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. 5 17 CFR 240.19b–4(f)(6)(iii). 6 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 78101 (June 17, 2016), 81 FR 41141 (June 23, 2016) (File No. 10–222). 4 17 PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58039 and their equivalents, on IEX must hold an annual meeting of shareholders no later than one year after the end of the company’s fiscal year and solicit proxies for that meeting.7 An annual meeting allows the equity owners of the company the opportunity to elect directors and meet with management to discuss company affairs. Currently, should a company fail to hold its annual meetings as required by Rule 14.408, staff of IEX Regulation (‘‘Staff’’) would have no discretion to allow additional time for the company to regain compliance. Rather, Staff would be required by Rule 14.501(d)(1) to issue a Delisting Determination, subjecting the company to immediate suspension and delisting unless the company appeals to the Listings Review Committee.8 IEX proposes to amend Rules 14.501(a)(4), 14.501(d), and 14.502(b) to provide Staff with limited discretion to grant a listed company that failed to hold its annual meeting of shareholders an extension of time to comply with the requirement.9 IEX notes that the only other rule where a company would be subject to immediate suspension and delisting, besides when it fails to solicit proxies and hold an annual meeting, would be when Staff makes a determination pursuant to the Rule Series 14.100 that the company’s continued listing raises a public interest concern. Such a determination would generally be made only following discussion and review of the facts and circumstances with the company. For all other deficiencies under Chapters 14 and 16 of the IEX rules, a listed company is provided with either a fixed compliance period within which to regain compliance,10 or given 7 See Rules 14.408(a) and (b), respectively. Rule 14.407(a)(4)(D) also requires a limited partnership to hold an annual meeting of limited partners if required by statute or regulation in the state in which the limited partnership is formed or doing business or by the terms of the partnership’s limited partnership agreement. Rule 14.407(a)(4)(F) requires the limited partnership to distribute information statements or proxies when a meeting of limited partners is required. The proposed process described herein would apply in the identical manner to limited partnerships required to hold a meeting as it does to other companies. See also Rules 14.407(a)(4)(D) and (F) (partner meetings and proxy solicitation of limited partnerships). 8 A listed company may request review of a Staff Delisting Determination by the Listings Review Committee. A timely request for a hearing will stay the suspension and delisting pending the issuance of a written Panel Decision. See Rule 14.502. 9 The Exchange notes that listed companies and certain limited partnerships are also required to solicit proxies and provide proxy statements for all meetings of shareholders or partners. See Rules 14.408(b) and 14.407(a)(4)(F), respectively. A listed company or limited partnership that has not timely held an annual meeting has not violated the proxy solicitation rule because no meeting has been held. 10 See Rule 14.501(d)(3).

    Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) \1\ of the Securities Exchange Act of 
1934 (``Act'') \2\ and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,\3\ notice is hereby given 
that on November 22, 2017, NYSE American LLC (``Exchange'' or ``NYSE 
American'') filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission

organization. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit

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

    The Exchange proposes to amend Exchange rules to delete cash 
equities rules that are not applicable to trading on the Pillar trading 
platform. The proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's Web 
site at www.nyse.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 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 those 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 parts 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 Exchange proposes to amend its equity rules to delete rules 
that are not applicable to trading on the Pillar trading platform.
    To effect its transition of cash equities trading to Pillar, the 
Exchange adopted Pillar platform Rules 1E-13E. Because specified 
Exchange rules that govern trading cash equities on a Floor-based 
trading platform are not applicable to trading on Pillar, the Exchange 
designated specified rules governing cash equities trading with the 
following preamble: ``this rule is not applicable to trading on the 
Pillar trading platform.'' \4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 80590 (May 4, 
2017), 82 FR 21843 (May 10, 2017) (Approval Order) and 79993 
(February 9, 2017), 82 FR 10814 (February 15, 2017) (SR-NYSEMKT-
2017-01) (Notice). See Securities Exchange Act Release Nos. 79982 
(February 7, 2017), 82 FR 105008 [sic] (February 13, 2017) (Notice) 
and 80577 (May 2, 2017), 82 FR 21446 (May 8, 2017) (SR-NYSEMKT-2017-
04) (Approval Order).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 24, 2017, the Exchange transitioned all cash equities 
trading to the Pillar platform. Because the cash equities rules that 
are not applicable to trading on the Pillar trading platform are now 
obsolete, the Exchange proposes to delete the following rules in their 
entirety: \5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The Exchange also proposes to delete (i) section headings if 
all of the rules of a section are being deleted and (ii) the list of 
rules included in a section heading if rules are being deleted from 
that section.

* * * * *
    The Exchange also proposes to delete Rule 424--Equities. The 
Exchange believes that Rule 6.10E, regarding ETP Holders Holding 
Options, addresses the same topic, and therefore Rule 424--Equities is 
no longer necessary for trading on the Pillar trading platform.\6\ The 
Exchange also proposes to delete Rule 438--Equities, which relates to 
participating in decimal conversion testing, because by its terms, as 
specified in Supplementary Material .30 to that rule, that rule has 
expired because decimal pricing has been fully implemented.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Current Rule 424--Equities is based on New York Stock 
Exchange LLC Rule 424 and has more detailed reporting requirements 
than Rule 6.10E. Current Rule 6.10E, which is based on NYSE Arca, 
Inc. Rule 11.24 (formerly, NYSE Arca Equities, Inc. Rule 6.10), sets 
forth the restrictions currently applicable on other exchanges 
relating to the purchase or sale of options that are not listed on 
the Options Clearing Corporation. See, e.g., CBOE BZX Exchange, Inc. 
Rule 12.10(a) (Options). To align the Exchange's rules with those of 
other exchanges, the Exchange proposes to delete Rule 424--Equities.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange also proposes to delete Equities rules that are 
currently designated as ``Reserved.'' \7\ The Exchange believes it 
would reduce confusion and promote transparency to delete references to 
rules that do not have any substantive content. The Exchange further 
believes that because it is transitioning to a new rule numbering 
framework for cash equities trading, maintaining these rules on a 
reserved basis is no longer necessary.

Rules 601--Equities--899--Equities; and Rules 908--Equities--999--
Equities. The Exchange also proposes to delete references to the 
term ``Reserved'' that do not correlate to a current rule number.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

[[Page 58038]]

    The Exchange also proposes a technical, non-substantive amendment 
to replace the term ``Non-routable Limit Order'' with the term ``Non-
Routable Limit Order'' in Rules 7.31E(d)(1)(C), 7.31E(e)(1), 
7.31E(j)(1), and 7.46E(f)(5)(F)(ii) and (iii). The Exchange believes 
that capitalizing the term ``Routable'' is more consistent with the 
naming methodology of other Exchange order types, such as the ``Non-
Displayed Limit Order,'' as defined in Rule 7.31E(d)(1).
2. Statutory Basis
    The proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the 
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ``Act''),\8\ in general, and 
furthers the objectives of Section 6(b)(5),\9\ in particular, because 
it is 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 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b).
    \9\ 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Exchange believes that its proposed rule change to eliminate 
rules that are not applicable to trading on Pillar would remove 
impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and 
a national market system because it would eliminate rules that are now 
obsolete or that do not have any substantive content. Eliminating 
obsolete rules would reduce potential confusion and add transparency 
and clarity to the Exchange's rules, thereby ensuring that members, 
regulators, and the public can more easily navigate and understand the 
Exchange's rulebook.

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 that is not necessary or appropriate 
in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. The proposed rule change is 
not intended to address any competitive issues, but rather it is 
designed to eliminate obsolete rules.

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

    No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the 
proposed rule change.

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

    The Exchange has filed the proposed rule change pursuant to Section 
19(b)(3)(A)(iii) of the Act \10\ and Rule 19b-4(f)(6) thereunder.\11\ 
Because the 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 prior to 
30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as 
the Commission may designate, if consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest, the proposed rule change has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6)(iii) thereunder.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A)(iii).
    \11\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A proposed rule change filed under Rule 19b-4(f)(6) \12\ normally 
does not become operative for 30 days after the date of the filing. 
However, Rule 19b-4(f)(6)(iii) \13\ permits the Commission to designate 
a shorter time if such action is consistent with the protection of 
investors and the public interest. The Exchange requests that the 
Commission waive the 30-day operative delay. The Commission notes that 
the Exchange represented that it has transitioned cash equities trading 
to the Pillar trading technology in July 2017. Therefore, the 
Exchange's cash equities rules that govern floor-based trading are no 
longer in effect and are therefore obsolete. The Commission believes 
deleting Exchange rules that are no longer in effect and are obsolete 
would be consistent with the protection of investors and the public 
interest because it would reduce potential confusion and add 
transparency and clarity to NYSE American's rules. Further, the 
Commission notes that Exchange Rule 438-Equities, related to 
participation in decimal conversion testing, is obsolete as decimal 
conversion has been completed. Finally, the Commission believes that 
the replacement of the term ``Non-routable Limit Order'' with the term 
``Non-Routable Limit Order'' is a non-substantive change to conform the 
designation of the order type. For the foregoing reasons, the 
Commission finds that waiver of the 30-day operative delay is 
consistent with the protection of investors and the public interest. 
Accordingly, the Commission waives the 30-day operative delay and 
designates the proposed rule change operative upon filing.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6).
    \13\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6)(iii).
    \14\ 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 such 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) \15\ of the Act to determine whether the proposed 
rule change should be approved or disapproved.
