The Exchange proposes to make certain conforming changes to its rules following the change in the Exchange's name from NYSE Amex to NYSE MKT LLC.
As part of the Exchange's name change, the Exchange simplified cross-references within the Exchange's rules. The Exchange shortened references to "NYSE Amex Equities" to "Equities" (e.g., Rule 0--NYSE Amex Equities became Rule 0--Equities). The Exchange proposes to change several remaining cross-references to certain NYSE Amex Equities rules in Rules 17--Equities, 80B--Equities, 107B--Equities, 107C--Equities, 127--Equities, 128--Equities, 241--Equities, 250--Equities, 273--Equities, 432--Equities, and 502--Equities. Lastly, the Exchange proposes to replace a reference to "Amex" in Rule 193 and references to "NYSE Amex Equities" and "NYSE Amex" in Rule 107C--Equities with references to "Exchange."
The Exchange believes that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Act"),
The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate in furtherance of the purposes of the Act.
No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the proposed rule change.
