World Fuel Services Corporation, a Florida corporation, (“Issuer”), has filed an application with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 12(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”)  and Rule 12d2-2(d) thereunder, to withdraw its Common Stock, $.01 par value (“Security”), from listing and registration on the Pacific Exchange, Inc. (“PCX” or “Exchange”).
The Board of Directors (“Board”) of the Issuer approved a resolution on May 30, 2001 to withdraw its Security from listing on the Exchange. The Board determined that the coverage provided by its current listing of the Security on the New York Stock Exchange, Inc. (“NYSE”) was appropriate for its current and future needs, and it is not in the best interest of the Company to continue listing its Security on the PCX.
The Issuer stated in its application that it has complied with the rules of the PCX that govern the removal of securities from listing and registration on the Exchange. The Issuer's application relates solely to the Security's withdrawal from listing on the PCX and shall not affect its obligation to be registered under Section 12(b) the Act.
Any interested person may, on or before August 2, 2002, submit by letter to the Secretary of the Securities and Exchange Commission, 450 Fifth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20549-0609, facts bearing upon whether the application has been made in accordance with the rules of the PCX and what terms, if any, should be imposed by the Commission for the protection of investors. The Commission, based on the information submitted to it, will issue an order granting the application after the date mentioned above, unless the Commission determines to order a hearing on the matter.Start Signature
For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.
