December 23, 2013.
On October 31, 2013, the Chicago Board Options Exchange, Incorporated (the “Exchange” or “CBOE”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Act”) 
and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,
a proposed rule change to amend CBOE's rules regarding option orders that include a stock component. The proposed rule change was published for comment in the Federal Register on November 19, 2013.
The Commission received two comment letters regarding the proposed rule change.
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 January 3, 2014. The Commission is extending this 45-day time period.
The Commission finds it appropriate to designate a longer period within which to take action on the proposed rule change so that it has sufficient time to consider this proposed rule change and the comment letters that have been submitted in connection with this proposed rule change.
Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,
designates February 17, 2014, 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 No. SR-CBOE-2013-107).
For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.
