On May 5, 2011, the New York Stock Exchange LLC (“NYSE” or “Exchange”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”), and Rule 19b-4 thereunder, a proposed rule change to amend the NYSE's Listed Company Manual to set forth certain complimentary products and services, and their commercial value, that are offered by the Exchange to currently and newly listed issuers. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on May 23, 2011. The Commission received sixteen comment letters on the proposal.
The Commission also received a comment letter from NYSE in response to the commenters.
Section 19(b)(2) of the Act  provides that within 45 days of the publication of notice of the filing of a proposed rule change, or within such longer period up to 90 days as the Commission may designate if it finds such longer period to be appropriate and publishes its reasons for so finding or as to which the self-regulatory organization consents, the Commission shall either approve the proposed rule change, disapprove the proposed rule change, or institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be disapproved. The 45th day for this filing is July 7, 2011.
The Commission is extending the 45-day time period for Commission action on the proposed rule change. The Commission finds that it is appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider the Exchange's proposal, as described above, and to consider the comment letters that have been submitted in connection with the proposed rule change.
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act, the Commission designates August 21, 2011 as the date by which the Commission should either approve or disapprove, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove, the proposed rule change (File Number SR-NYSE-2011-20).Start Signature
For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.
