Proposed Rule Change to Adopt FINRA Rules 5110 (Corporate Financing Rule), 5190 (Notification Requirements for Offering Participants) and 6470 (Withdrawal of Quotations in an OTC Equity Security in Compliance with SEC Reg M) in the Consolidated FINRA Rulebook

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. ("FINRA") (f/k/a National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc. ("NASD")) is filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC" or "Commission") a proposed rule change to (1) adopt NASD Rule 2710, without material change except for paragraphs (b)(10) and (11), as a FINRA rule in the consolidated FINRA rulebook; and (2) clarify and streamline the notice and other requirements in FINRA rules relating to Regulation M under the Act (including paragraphs (b)(10) and (11) of NASD Rule 2710 and paragraph (a) of Incorporated NYSE Rule 392). The proposed rule change would renumber NASD Rule 2710 as FINRA Rule 5110 and adopt new FINRA Rules 5190 and 6470 in the consolidated FINRA rulebook.
