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 The purpose of this rule change is to amend Rule 805(b) relating to Market Makers trading in non-appointed options classes. Rule 805(b) presently governs the submission of orders by Market Makers in non-appointed options classes. Subparagraphs (b)(2) and (b)(3) place limitations on the overall percentage of executions that can occur in the nonappointed options classes. Specifically, subparagraph (b)(2) limits a Competitive Market Maker’s (‘‘CMM’’) total number of contracts executed in non-appointed options classes to 25% of the CMM’s total number of contracts executed in its appointed options classes and with respect to which it was quoting pursuant to Rule 804(e)(1), and subparagraph (b)(3) limits a Primary Market Maker’s (‘‘PMM’’) total number of contracts executed in non-appointed options classes to 10% of the PMM’s total number of contracts executed in its appointed classes. The Exchange now proposes in subparagraph (b)(3) to increase the overall percentage of executions that can occur in a PMM’s non-appointed options classes from 10% to 25% to align with the CMM allowance as well as other options exchanges, including its affiliated options market, BX Options.4 The Exchange adopted the 4 BX Options Market Makers (including Lead Market Makers) can execute no more than 25% of their total volume outside of their registered options classes. See BX Options Rules, Chapter VII, Section 6(e). In addition, CBOE Rule 8.7, Interpretations and Policies .03 provides that 75% of a MarketMaker’s total contract volume must be in classes to which the Market-Maker is appointed. Accordingly, only 25% of a CBOE Market-Maker’s contract volume can be in non-appointed classes. CBOE Rule 8.7 applies equally to Lead Market-Makers and Designated Primary Market-Makers in the same E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM Continued 27DEN1
