This emergency order was initially scheduled to terminate as of midnight on Oct. 2, 2008, but the SEC extended the order until the earlier of (i) midnight on Friday, Oct. 17, 2008, or (ii) three business days after the signing of the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (H.R. 1424) by the President. Since that legislation was signed by the President last Friday, Oct. 3, 2008, the order will expire as of midnight on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2008, unless the SEC takes additional action before that time.
