612.24 Transfer of business.


(1) Approval by members. No action by which a town mutual proposes to transfer to another person or to reinsure any part of its insurance business, other than in the normal and usual course of business, or to sell, lease, exchange, mortgage, pledge or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of its assets, is effective unless approved by the members.


(2) Report to commissioner. The town mutual shall file with the commissioner a copy of any resolution under sub. (1) not less than 30 days in advance of the date of the action proposed to be taken under the resolution, with a statement of the number of members entitled to vote, the number of members voting and the number voting to approve the transfer, stating separately mail votes and votes cast in person. The commissioner may defer the effective date for an additional period not exceeding 30 days by written notice to the town mutual before the expiration of the initial 30-day period.


(3) Disapproval. The commissioner may, within the 30-day period or its extension, prohibit the proposed action if it is contrary to law or to the interests of insureds or the public or if it will make possible the circumvention of any of the requirements of chs. 600 to 646. The commissioner shall prohibit a transfer of all or substantially all of the business unless it is accompanied by a plan for voluntary dissolution under s. 612.25.
