In PLR 200507001, the taxpayer requested rulings that certain services were not established securities markets under Section 7704, and that one of the services was a qualified matching service under Reg. 1.7704-1(g). If the Service granted these requests, which it did, the taxpayer also requested that partnerships whose interests were offered on the services would not be publicly traded as a result of these offerings. The latter ruling was also granted, providing the representations were correct.
