(b) Notwithstanding subsection (a) of this section, the commissioner may waive the deposit concentration limit set forth in subsection (a) of this section if the commissioner determines that any financial institution to be merged, consolidated, or acquired is not adequately capitalized, or is subject to a conservation, receivership, or dissolution order under this title or applicable federal law, and the waiver is otherwise in the best interest of depositors.
