On December 20, 2012, the Commission considered an Advisory Opinion Request (AOR) from Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. regarding its proposed establishment of a separate segregated fund (SSF) and the solicitation of the restricted classes of Yamaha’s service centers and dealers for contributions to that SSF. The Commission was unable to approve a response by the required four affirmative votes, and concluded its consideration of the request without issuing an Advisory Opinion.
