Start Preamble March 21, 2011.

On November 4, 2010, notice was published in the Federal Register that the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) intended to issue an order, pursuant to Section 17A(c)(4)(B) of the Securities Act of 1934 (“Act”),[1] cancelling the registrations of certain transfer agents.[2] For the reasons discussed below, the Commission is cancelling the registration of the transfer agents identified in the attached Appendix.

For Further Information Contact: Jerry W. Carpenter, Assistant Director, or David Karasik, Special Counsel, at (202) 551-5710, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Division of Trading and Markets, Room 7321 SP1, 100 F Street, NE., Washington, DC 20549-7010, or by e-mail at tradingandmarkets@sec.gov with the phrase “Notice of Intention To Cancel Transfer Agent Registration” in the subject line.

Background:

Section 17A(c)(4)(B) of the Act provides that if the Commission finds that any transfer agent registered with the Commission is no longer in existence or has ceased to do business as a transfer agent, the Commission shall by order cancel that transfer agent's registration. On November 4, 2010, the Commission published notice of its intention to cancel the registration of certain transfer agents whom it believed were no longer in existence or had ceased doing business as transfer agents.[3]

In the notice, the Commission identified 45 such transfer agents and stated that at any time after December 15, 2010, which was 41 days after the notice was published in the Federal Register, the Commission intended to issue an order canceling the registrations of any or all of the identified transfer agents. Three transfer agents contacted the Commission to object to the cancellation of their registrations stating that they have not ceased doing business as a transfer agent. The Commission has decided not to cancel the registration of these three transfer agents at this time. Two other transfer agents contacted the Commission regarding the cancellation of their registrations but did not object to such cancellation. None of the remaining 40 identified transfer agents contacted the Commission to object to the cancellation of their registrations.

Accordingly, the Commission is cancelling the registrations of the 42 transfer agents identified in the Appendix attached to this Order.

Order

On the basis of the foregoing, the Commission finds that each of the transfer agents whose name appears in the attached Appendix either is no longer in existence or has ceased doing business as a transfer agent.

It is therefore ordered pursuant to Section 17A(c)(4)(B) of the Act that the registration as a transfer agent of each of the transfer agents whose name appears in the attached Appendix be and hereby is cancelled.
