In the December 16, 2010 issue of the Federal Register, at 75 FR 78772, the Department of Labor published a notice of proposed exemption from the prohibited transaction restrictions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended, and from certain taxes imposed by the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. The notice of proposed exemption, if granted, would have permitted the sale of certain shares in a hedge fund by the Owens & Minor, Inc. Pension Plan to the applicant.
By e-mail dated February 8, 2011, the applicant requested that the application for exemption be withdrawn.
Accordingly, the notice of proposed exemption is hereby withdrawn.Start Signature
