In anticipation of the institution of these proceedings, Respondent Myler has submitted an Offer of Settlement ("Offer") which the Commission has determined to accept. Solely for the purpose of these proceedings and any other proceedings brought by or on behalf of the Commission or to which the Commission is a party, and without admitting or denying the findings contained herein, except as to jurisdiction of the Commission over Respondent Myler and over the subject matter of these proceedings, and except as to paragraphs III.A., and B., below, which are admitted. Respondent Myler, by his Offer, consents to the entry of the findings and remedial sanctions set forth below.

Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that proceedings pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Exchange Act be, and hereby are, instituted.

On the basis of this Order Instituting Public Administrative Proceedings Pursuant to Section 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, Making Findings and Imposing Remedial Sanctions ("Order"), and the Offer submitted by Respondent Myler, the Commission finds that:
