4.7(b)(3), 4.12(a), 4.22(d)(1) and 140.93;
The CPO of a commodity pool operated pursuant to an exemption under Regulation 4.7 requested exemptive relief from that regulation’s annual report requirement, in order to permit the CPO to file an annual report for the pool for the period of January 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014. The CPO determined to wind up the Pool’s operations on January 23, 2014, and by January 31, the Pool had permanently ceased trading. On February 13, 2014, the CPO completed the winding up process and made final distributions to the pool’s 15 participants. The Division granted the exemptive relief pursuant to Commission Regulations 4.12(a) and 140.93, and conditioned such relief on the future filing of a certified annual report for the period of January 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014.
