83-4 Real-Time Transaction Reporting in Additional 100 NASDAQ NMS Securities Effective February 8, 1983

TO: All NASD Members and NASDAQ Level 2 and 3 Subscribers

On February 8, 1983, 100 additional NASDAQ securities will enter the NASDAQ National Market System (NMS). As a result, real-time trade reporting will be required in these securities commencing on that date.

Of these securities, 50 met the Tier 1 criteria as stated in SEC Rule HAa2-l as of the December 31, 1982, qualification date and, therefore, are mandated to be included in the NMS. The remaining 50 securities were chosen from applications received from those companies with issues satisfying the Tier 2 criteria contained in Rule HAa2-l and ranked in the top 75 percent of NASDAQ securities in terms of dollar volume.

The NMS Securities Qualifications Committee adopted a formula for selecting the 50 securities from among the 260 applications which were received. This formula, which incorporates balance sheet and market characteristics, ranked the 260 companies in descending order in the following six categories:

1. Dollar Trading Volume
2. Share Volume
3. Stock Price
4. Number of Publicly Held Shares
5. Net Worth
6. Tangible Assets

A rank total was then established for each security by adding together the respective rank figures from each of the six categories noted above. The issues were then ranked in ascending order based on these rank totals. Companies were selected from this list in such a manner as to provide a cross-section of industries and companies located throughout the country. In addition, the number, location and dispersion of market makers in each issue was weighed in making the selections.

The list of the 100 securities that will enter the NMS on February 8 is attached.

Any questions regarding either the Tier 1 or Tier 2 criteria should be directed to Gary W. Guinn, Assistant Director, NASDAQ Operations, at (202) 728-8052. Questions pertaining to the trade reporting rules should be directed to Leon Bastien (202) 728-8202.

Sincerely,

John T. Wall
Executive Vice President
