  • § 3307. Consideration for stock

    (a) The capital stock of a corporation doing any and all insurance and reinsurance comprised in any one or more of the subdivisions of section 3301 of this title shall be issued at not less than par and under any of the following conditions, subject to the approval of the Commissioner:

    (1) For cash.

    (2) For the stock of another insurance company on a reorganization or merger.

    (3) For the stock of the same insurance company at the same or a different par value or preference than that of the stock called for exchange.

    (4) As a stock dividend. Any increase in par value under subdivisions (2) and (3) of this subsection and of the stock dividend provided in this subdivision are chargeable against the issuing corporation's surplus, undivided profits or a reserve established for that purpose. However, the limitations of this subdivision shall not exclude the payment of cash for a part of any increase in par value provided in subdivisions (2) and (3) of this subsection.

    (b) Whenever the charter or articles of association of an insurance company are so amended as to authorize an increase in its capital stock, it shall not be required to issue the whole amount of authorized increase, nor required to make any statement of capital except to the amount actually paid in or issued in accordance with the provisions of this chapter. (Added 1967, No. 344 (Adj. Sess.), § 1 (ch. 1, subch. 1, § 7).)
