Form 10, OMB Control No. 3235-0064, SEC File No. 270-051.

Notice is hereby given that, pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) is soliciting comments on the collection of information summarized below. The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the office of Management and Budget (“OMB”) for approval of extensions on the following:

Form 10 (17 CFR 249.210) is used by the Commission to register securities pursuant to Section 12(b) and Section 12(g) (15 U.S.C. 78l(b) and 78l(g)) of the Exchange Act of 1934. Form 10 requires financial and other information about such matters as the registrant's business, properties, identity and remuneration of management, outstanding securities and securities to be registered and financial condition. The information provided by Form 10 is intended to ensure the adequacy of information available to investors about the company. Form 10 takes approximately 215.210 hours per response to prepare and is filed by approximately 238 respondents. We estimated that 25% of the 215.210 hours per response (53.802 hours) is prepared by the company for an annual reporting burden of 12, 805 hours (53.802 hours per response x 238 responses).

Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

Please direct your written comment to Thomas Bayer, Director/Chief Information Officer, Securities and Exchange Commission, c/o Remi Pavlik-Simon, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 20549 or send an email to: PRA_Mailbox@sec.gov.
