Sec. 11789. Who may be incorporated.—When authorized by the bank commissioner as provided in section 11792, any five or more persons who shall have associated themselves by articles of agreement, in writing, as provided by law for any of the purposes included under section 11799, may be incorporated under any name or title designating such business. (Laws 1915, p. 161.)

Sec. 11790. Articles of agreement shall state, what.--The articles of agreement mentioned in this article shall set out:

1. The corporate name of the proposed corporation, which shall not be the name of any corporation heretofore incorporated in this state for similar purposes, or an imitation of such name.

2. The name of the city or town and county in this state in which the corporation is to be located.

3. The amount of the capital stock of the corporation, the number of shares into which it, is divided, and the par value thereof; that the same has been subscribed in good faith and all thereof actually paid up in lawful money of the United States, and is in the custody of the persons named as the first board of directors or managers.

4... The names and places of residence of the several shareholders and the number of shares subscribed by each.

5. The number of directors or managers, and the names of those agreed upon for the first year.

6. The purposes for which the corporation is formed. The articles of agreement may designate the number of directors necessary to constitute a quorum, and may provide for the number of years the corporation is to continue, which shall not exceed fifty years, or may provide that the existence of the corporation shall continue until the corporation shall be dissolved by consent of the stockholders or by proceedings instituted by the state under any statute now in force or hereafter enacted. (Laws 1915, p. 161.)

Sec. 11791. To be signed, recorded and filed in office of bank commissioner.—The articles of agreement shall be signed and acknowledged by the parties thereto, and recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds of the county or city in which the corporation is to be located; and a certified copy of such recorded instrument shall be filed in the office of the bank commissioner. (Laws 1915, p. 162.)

Sec. 11792. Examination and certificates as to character and capital.—When any trust company shall have filed with the bank commissioner a certified copy of its articles of agreement and shall have paid all incorporation and other fees in full, as required by law, and shall have provided the cash required by law, the commissioner shall, before such trust company shall complete its incorporation, examine or cause an examination to be made, in order to ascertain whether the requisite capital of such trust company has been subscribed in good faith and paid in actual cash and is ready for use in the transaction of business of the proposed trust company, and whether the character, responsibility and general fitness of the persons named in such articles of agreement are such as to command confidence and warrant belief that the business of the proposed corporation will be honestly and efficiently conducted in accordance with the intent and purpose of this chapter. In case the commissioner shall find all the provisions of the law have been complied with and shall have satisfied himself by such investigation as to the facts as above provided, he shall grant a certificate setting forth that such corporation has been duly organized and the amount of its capital subscribed and paid up in full. Such certificate shall be recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds of the county or city in which the corporation is to be located, and, such certificate, so recorded, or certified copies thereof, shall be taken in all the courts of this state as evidence of such incorporation; and the existence of such corporation shall continue for the period limited in its articles of agreement, if there fixed, and if not there fixed, then until the corporation is dissolved by consent of its stockholders or until its corporate existence ends pursuant to the laws of this state. In case the commissioner shall not be satisfied, as the result of such examination, that the character, responsibility and general fitness of the persons named in such articles of agreement is up to the standard above provided, and on that account shall refuse to grant the certificate of incorporation, he shall forthwith give notice thereof to the proposed incorporators from whom such articles of agreement were received; who, if they so desire, may within ten days thereafter appeal from such refusal to a board composed of the governor, the attorney-general and the state treasurer, which board shall within twenty days thereafter finally decide the matter, and the commissioner shall act in accordance with such decision. Such board may prescribe rules and regulations for the proceedings in connection with such appeal. (Laws 1915, p. 162.)

Sec. 11793. Cash capital required.—The cash capital of such corporation shall amount to not less than:

(a) $50,000, if the place where its business is to be transacted is an unincorporated or incorporated village or city, the population of which does not exceed twenty-five thousand.

(b) $100,000, if the place where its business is to be transacted is a city, the population of which exceeds twenty-five thousand but does not exceed one hundred thousand.

(c) $200,000, if the place where its business is to be transacted is a city, the population of which exceeds one hundred thousand.

Provided, however, that any trust company now existing, the capital of which is not equal to that limitation required of a trust company in its location, may continue to do business under its present capital; provided that, until its capital and surplus fund shall equal twenty per centum more than the minimum of capital required for a trust company in its location, one-tenth of its net earnings at the close of each dividend period, as provided in section 11825, shall be credited to the surplus fund, and no such trust company shall declare, credit or pay any dividend for any dividend period to its stockholders until it shall have made such credit to its surplus fund for that period. (Laws 1915, p. 163.)

Sec. 11794. Capital stock to be divided into shares-vendor and vendee liable, when.-- The capital stock of such corporation shall be divided into shares of not less than one hundred dollars each. If any shareholder sell or transfer his shares, or any number thereof, in any such corporation now existing before they shall have been fully paid, the vendor as well as the vendee shall be liable, the former for one year after notice to the corporation of such sale or transfer, as indorser, for whatever is still due on such shares. (Laws 1915, p. 163.)
