Rule 605 Disclosure

By letter dated June 22, 2001, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) notified Richard Romano, Chair of the Small Firms Advisory Board, of the SEC’s decision to grant an exemption from Rule 605 (then known as Rule 11 Ac1-5) for small market centers that do not focus their business on the most actively traded securities. This exemption exempts any market center that reported fewer than 200 transactions per trading day on average over the preceding six month period in securities that are covered by the Rule (that is, national market system securities that do not qualify for the inactively traded security exemption), but only if more than 90% of such transactions were in securities that are not included in the Nasdaq-100 Index or the S&P 500 Composite Stock Price Index. Odeon Capital Group LLC, effects sufficiently few transactions to fit within this exemption. Accordingly, the firm is not required to report pursuant to Rule 605.
