Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’) 1, and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on November 29, 2017, Nasdaq PHLX LLC (‘‘Phlx’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III, below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend the Exchange’s connectivity fees at Chapter VIII of the Phlx Pricing Schedule to provide a waiver of all connectivity fees to new PSX Participants for a limited time The text of the proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s website at http://nasdaqphlx.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. 1 15 2 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Dec 18, 2017 Jkt 244001 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1).

Purpose The purpose of the proposed rule change is to amend the Exchange’s connectivity fees under ‘‘Port Fees’’ at Chapter VIII of the Nasdaq PHLX LLC Pricing Schedule to provide a waiver of all such fees to new PSX Participants for a limited time. Port fees include the choices for connecting to PSX and receipt of data therefrom, together with the fees assessed for that connectivity. Specifically, the Exchange is proposing to waive all Port Fees for every Participant that is a ‘‘new PSX Participant’’ through December 31, 2018. The Exchange is defining a ‘‘new PSX Participant’’ as a Participant that was not a Participant before September 1, 2017. The Exchange believes that the proposed fee waiver will make PSX a more attractive venue for prospective Participants. The Exchange notes that its proposal is similar to one that it implemented previously to attract new Participants.3 2. Statutory Basis The Exchange believes that its proposal is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Act,4 in general, and furthers the objectives of Sections 6(b)(4) and 6(b)(5) of the Act,5 in particular, in that it provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees and other charges among members and issuers and other persons using any facility, and is not designed to permit unfair discrimination between customers, issuers, brokers, or dealers. The Exchange believes that the proposed change is reasonable because it will limit the overall costs incurred by new Participants in connecting to the Exchange, which may as a consequence attract new Participants. Attracting new Participants will benefit all market participants on PSX by ensuring that PSX remains deep and liquid. The Exchange believes that the proposed change is an equitable allocation and is not unfairly discriminatory because the Exchange will uniformly apply the same fee to all similarly situated Participants. In this regard, the Exchange is proposing to apply the fee waiver to new PSX Participants, which the Exchange proposes to define as a 3 See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 34– 78665 (Aug. 24, 2016), 81 FR 59693 (Aug. 30, 2016) (SR–Phlx–2016–85) (waiving port fees through August 1, 2017 for those who were not Participants after July 1, 2016). 4 15 U.S.C. 78f(b). 5 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(4) and (5).
