Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change [FR Doc. 2019–04397 Filed 3–11–19; 8:45 am] March 6, 2019. ‘‘Act’’) 2 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,3 notice is hereby given that, on February 22, 2019, New York Stock Exchange LLC (‘‘NYSE’’ or the ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the selfregulatory organization. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. The Exchange proposes to adjust its annual fee requirements for listed companies for any calendar year in which a listed company consummates a reverse stock split. Sections 902.02 and 902.03 of the Manual set forth the Exchange’s requirements with respect to the payment of annual fees by listed companies. Listed companies are billed annual fees on a per share basis (currently at a rate of $0.0011 per share) based on the number of shares issued and outstanding (including treasury shares) on December 31 of the prior U.S.C. 78a. 3 17 CFR 240.19b–4. U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:50 Mar 11, 2019 Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 calendar year.4 The Exchange believes this is generally an appropriate approach, as it is unusual for listed companies to significantly reduce the number of shares outstanding during the course of the year and, in fact, companies often issue significant additional shares during the course of a year and they are not charged annual fees for those shares in the first partial year after their issuance (although companies are charged initial listing fees on any additional shares issued during the course of the year). However, there may be a small number of listed companies each year that consummate reverse stock splits. A reverse stock split results in a significant reduction in the number of shares outstanding, usually resulting in the post-split shares outstanding representing a small percentage of the number of shares outstanding pre-split. One consequence of this is that the listed company’s annual fees will reflect shares that are not outstanding for a portion of that year. The Exchange believes it is appropriate to address this anomaly, particularly in light of the fact that a listed company generally only consummates a reverse stock split to address a low trading price and, in many cases, may be required to take the action to bring the company into compliance with Exchange continued listing standards. For the foregoing reasons, the Exchange proposes to amend Section 902.02 of the Manual to include a new subsection providing that, notwithstanding any other provision of Section 902.02 with respect to the calculation of annual fees, in any calendar year in which a listed company consummates a reverse stock split, such company will be charged prorated annual fees for the period prior to such consummation based on the shares outstanding on December 31 of the immediately preceding year (‘‘Original Shares Outstanding’’). With respect to the remainder of that year, such company will be charged annual fees on a prorated basis based on the Original Shares Outstanding as adjusted by the reverse split ratio. The Exchange will make any appropriate adjustments to its billing procedures to implement this provision. The Exchange notes that there are typically only a small number of reverse stock splits consummated by listed companies in the course of a year. Consequently, the proposed rule change would not affect the Exchange’s 4 At the beginning of each calendar year, the Exchange invoices issuers for annual fees applicable to that year. 2 15 1 15 8919 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1
