On April 10, 2015, The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq” or “Exchange”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”), pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Act”) [1] and Rule 19b-4 thereunder,[2] a proposed rule change to list and trade the shares (“Shares”) of the following 18 exchange-traded managed funds: Eaton Vance Balanced NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Global Dividend Income NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Growth NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Large-Cap Value NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Richard Bernstein All Asset Strategy NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Richard Bernstein Equity Strategy NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Small-Cap NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Stock NextSharesTM; Parametric Emerging Markets NextSharesTM; Parametric International Equity NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Bond NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance TABS 5-to-15 Year Laddered Municipal Bond NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Floating-Rate & High Income NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Global Macro Absolute Return NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance Government Obligations NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance High Income Opportunities NextSharesTM; Eaton Vance High Yield Municipal Income NextSharesTM; and Eaton Vance National Municipal Income NextSharesTM (collectively, “Funds”). On April 21, 2015, the Exchange filed Amendments Nos. 1 and 2 to the proposal.[3] The proposed rule change, as modified by Amendments Nos. 1 and 2 thereto, was published for comment in the Federal Register on April 29, 2015.[4] The Commission received no comments on the proposed rule change.

Section 19(b)(2) of the Act [5] 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 June 13, 2015. 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, which seeks to list and trade Shares of the Funds pursuant to Nasdaq Rule 5745 governing the listing Start Printed Page 34185and trading of Exchange-Traded Managed Fund Shares, so that it has sufficient time to consider this proposed rule change.

Accordingly, the Commission, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,[6] designates July 28, 2015, as the date by which the Commission shall either approve or disapprove, or institute proceedings to determine whether to disapprove, the proposed rule change (File No. SR-NASDAQ-2015-036).
