The Securities and Exchange Commission gives notice that W2007 Grace Acquisition I, Inc. (“W2007 Grace”) has filed an application under Section 12(h) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. W2007 Grace asks the Commission to issue an order conditionally exempting the company from the requirement to file reports under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. In its application, W2007 Grace asserts that exemptive relief would be consistent with the standards articulated in Section 12(h) because: (1) As of January 1, 2013, W2007 Grace had fewer than 300 holders of record of each class of its securities after excluding shares that the company believes are beneficially owned by a single beneficial owner through 300 trust entities formed by such owner solely for the purpose of attempting to cause the termination of the suspension of the company's reporting obligations under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act; (2) there is limited trading activity in, and an absence of any regular market for, W2007 Grace's securities; (3) the company is not directly engaged in active operations as it is a real estate investment firm with a small economic interests in 130 hotels and no employees; and (4) to impose the reporting burdens of Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act on the company under the current circumstances would contravene the intent of Section 15(d) and Rule 12g5-1 under the Exchange Act.
For a detailed statement of the information presented, all persons are referred to W2007 Grace's application, which is available on the Commission's Internet Web site at http://www.sec.gov/rules/other.shtml and for Web site viewing and printing in the Commission's Public Reference Room, Station Place, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549, on official business days between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
