SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

[Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Release No. 58724/October 2, 2008]

 
Amendment to Order and Order Extending Emergency Order Pursuant 
to Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Taking 
Temporary Action To Respond to Market Developments

    Pursuant to Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Exchange Act''),\1\ on September 18, 2008, the Securities and 
Exchange Commission (``Commission'') issued an Emergency Order,\2\ as 
amended on September 21, 2008 (the ``Order''),\3\ requiring 
institutional investment managers to report short sales of certain 
publicly traded securities. That Order took effect on September 22, 
2008, and required the filing of a Form SH on September 29, 2008. The 
Order is currently set to terminate on October 2, 2008.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 15 U.S.C. 78l(k)(2).
    \2\ See Exchange Act Release No. 58591 (September 18, 2008).
    \3\ See Exchange Act Release No. 58591A (September 21, 2008).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to its authority under Section 12(k)(2)(C) of the Exchange 
Act, the Commission is extending the Order. Section 12(k)(2)(C) 
authorizes the Commission to extend an emergency order issued pursuant 
to Section 12(k)(2)(A) of the Exchange Act for a total effective period 
of up to 30 calendar days, if the Commission finds that the emergency 
still exists and determines that an extension is necessary in the 
public interest and for the protection of investors to maintain fair 
and orderly securities markets. As a result of the extension, Forms SH 
shall be required to be filed on October 6, 2008, and October 14, 
2008.\4\ The Commission is also making technical amendments to Form SH 
and its accompanying Instructions.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ These reports must be filed electronically using the 
Commission's EDGAR system.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Commission continues to be concerned about the potential for 
sudden and excessive fluctuations of securities prices and disruption 
in the functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair 
and orderly markets. The Commission also continues to believe that some 
persons may take advantage of issuers that have become temporarily 
weakened by current market conditions to engage in inappropriate short 
selling in the securities of such issuers. Therefore, the Commission 
has concluded that it remains necessary to require certain 
institutional investment managers to report information concerning 
short sales of securities. Accordingly, the Commission has determined 
that extending the Order is necessary in the public interest and for 
the protection of investors to maintain fair and orderly securities 
markets.
    The Commission believes that the nonpublic submission of Form SH 
may help prevent artificial volatility in securities as well as further 
downward swings that are caused by short selling, while at the same 
time, providing the Commission with useful information to combat market 
manipulation that threatens investors and capital markets. Also, the 
Commission has considered further the reasons to maintain the 
information as nonpublic in the current market environment, and is 
concerned that publicly available Form SH data could give rise to 
additional, imitative short selling that was not intended by the 
Commission's Order. Accordingly, the Commission has determined that 
Forms SH filed under the Order including those that were due on 
September 29, 2008, will remain nonpublic to the extent permitted by 
law without the filer needing to submit a confidential treatment 
request.
    Therefore, it is ordered, pursuant to Section 12(k)(2)(C) of the 
Exchange Act, that the Order is extended such that it will terminate at 
11:59 p.m. EDT on Friday, October 17, 2008.

    By the Commission.
Florence E. Harmon,
Acting Secretary.

Form SH--Information Required of Institutional Investment Managers 
Pursuant to Emergency Order, Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Release 
No. 58591a, September 21, 2008, and Emergency Order, Securities 
Exchange Act of 1934 Release No. 58724, October 2, 2008

General Instructions

    1. Rule as to Use of Form SH. Institutional investment managers 
(``Managers'') must use Form SH for reports to the Commission 
required by the Commission's Emergency Order, Securities Exchange 
Act of 1934 Release No. 58591A, September 21, 2008, and Emergency 
Order, Securities Exchange Act Release No. 58724, dated October 2, 
2008 (together, the ``Form SH Emergency Orders''). The Form SH 
Emergency Orders provide that every Manager that exercises 
investment discretion with respect to accounts holding section 13(f) 
securities, as defined in rule 13f-1(c) under the Securities 
Exchange Act of 1934 [15 U.S.C. 78m(f)] (``Exchange Act''), who has 
filed or was required to file a Form 13F for the calendar quarter 
ended June 30, 2008, must file a non-public report on Form SH with 
the Commission to report certain information about short sales and 
short positions. The non-public Form SH filing must be made on the 
Monday (or, if Monday is a federal holiday, the first business day 
thereafter) of each calendar week immediately following a Form SH 
reporting period (i.e., the preceding Sunday-Saturday calendar week) 
in which the Manager has entered into any new short positions with 
respect to any section 13(f) securities except for any short 
position(s) for options (``SH Short Positions''). The non-public 
Form SH will report SH Short Positions for the Sunday-Saturday 
calendar week that precedes the date on which the Form SH is due to 
be filed.
    2. Rules to Prevent Duplicative Reporting. If two or more 
Managers, each of which is required by the Form SH Emergency Orders 
to file a report on Form SH for the reporting period, exercise 
investment discretion with respect to the same securities, only one 
such Manager must include information in its reports on Form SH.
    A Manager having information that is required by the Form SH 
Emergency Orders to be reported on Form SH, and such information is 
reported by another Manager (or Managers), such Manager must 
identify the Manager(s) reporting on its behalf in the manner 
described in Special Instruction 6.
    3. Filing of Form SH. A Form SH report that is filed by a 
Manager with the Commission shall be non-public upon filing. A 
Manager must label its Form SH as non-public by adding the phrase 
NON-PUBLIC (in bold and capital letters) at the top and bottom of 
each page of the entire form, i.e., each page(s) of the Form SH 
Cover Page (the ``Cover Page''), the Form SH Summary Page (the 
``Summary Page''), and the Form SH Information Table (the 
``Information Table'').
    A Manager must file a Form SH report with the Commission on or 
before 5:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on the Monday (or, if Monday 
is a federal holiday, the first business day thereafter) of each 
week immediately following the preceding seven calendar day period 
in which the Manager has entered into any new SH Short Position(s). 
The Form SH must be filed electronically using the Commission's 
EDGAR system.
    4. Official List of Section 13(f) Securities. The official list 
of section 13(f) securities published by the Commission (the ``13F 
List'') lists the securities the holdings of which a Manager is to 
report on Form 13F. See rule 13f-1(c) [17 CFR 240.13f-1(c)]. Form SH 
filers may rely on the current 13F List in determining whether they 
need to report on Form SH information about any particular equity 
security, excluding short positions for options that are on the 13F 
List. The 13F List

[[Page 58988]]

is available on the SEC's Web site, at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/
investment/13flists.htm. Paper copies are available at a reasonable 
fee from the Securities and Exchange Commission, Public Reference 
Room, 100 F Street, NE., Washington, DC 20549.

period. If the Manager is filing the Form SH report as an amendment, 
then the Manager must check the amendment box on the Cover Page; 
enter the amendment number; and check the appropriate box to

presentation of the required information. Place all additional 
information after the signature of the person signing the report 
(immediately preceding the Report Type section). Do not include any 
additional information on the Summary Page or in the Information

the Number of Securities Sold Short (Day) (Column 4) by the closing 
market price of the security on that day, or, when applicable, the 
most recent business day. The Manager must express this total as a 
rounded figure. See Special Instruction 9.

short, a Manager must use the market price of the section 13(f) 
securities as of the close of floor trading on the New York Stock 
Exchange (``NYSE'') for the day in question. If the securities are 
sold short on a non-business day, a Manager must use the market 
price of the section 13(f) securities as of the close of the NYSE 
for the most recent business day. Such market closing time shall be 
used to determine the price for all SH Short Positions, irrespective 
of which U.S. equity market the issuer trades on. Enter values

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

[Release No. 58723]

 
Order Extending Emergency Order Pursuant to Section 12(K)(2) of 
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 Taking Temporary Action To Respond 
to Market Developments

October 2, 2008.
    Pursuant to Section 12(k)(2) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 
(``Exchange Act''),\1\ on September 18, 2008, the Securities and 
Exchange Commission (``Commission'') issued an Emergency Order (the 
``Order'') that prohibited persons from selling short the securities of 
financial institutions. The Order became effective at 12:01 a.m. E.D.T. 
on September 19, 2008 and is currently set to terminate at 11:59 p.m. 
E.D.T. on October 2, 2008.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 15 U.S.C. 78l(k)(2).
    \2\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 58592 (Sept. 18, 
2008); see also Securities Exchange Act Release No. 58611 (Sept. 21, 
2008).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to our authority under Section 12(k)(2)(C) of the Exchange 
Act, we are extending the Order. Section 12(k)(2)(C) authorizes the 
Commission to extend an emergency order issued pursuant to Section 
12(k)(2)(A) of the Exchange Act for a total effective period of up to 
30 calendar days, if the Commission finds that the emergency still 
exists and determines that an extension is necessary in the public 
interest and for the protection of investors to maintain fair and 
orderly securities markets.
    We have carefully reevaluated the current state of the markets and 
we remain concerned about the potential for sudden and excessive 
fluctuations of securities prices generally and disruption in the 
functioning of the securities markets that could threaten fair and 
orderly markets. We intend the prohibition to restore investor and 
market confidence by preventing short selling from being used to drive 
down the prices of securities in financial institutions even where 
there is no fundamental basis for a price decline other than general 
market conditions. Thus, we have determined in this environment that 
the standards under Section 12(k)(2) for extending the Order have been 
met. Accordingly, we have determined that extending the Order is in the 
public interest and necessary to maintain fair and orderly securities 
markets and for the protection of investors.
    It is therefore ordered that, pursuant to Section 12(k)(2)(C) of 
the Exchange Act, the Order is extended such that it will terminate at 
the earlier of (i) three business days from the President's signing of 
the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424), or (ii) 
11:59 p.m. E.D.T. on Friday, October 17, 2008.

    By the Commission.
Florence E. Harmon,
Acting Secretary.
