41-2853. Assessment of stockholders or members. (1) Any insurer receiving the director’s notice required in section 41-2852(1):
(a) If a stock insurer and to the extent that stockholders are subject to assessment under the insurer’s articles of incorporation, by resolution of its board of directors the insurer may assess its stockholders for amounts necessary to cure the deficiency and provide the insurer with a reasonable amount of surplus in addition. If any stockholder fails to pay a lawful assessment after notice given to him in person, or by mail addressed to him at his address last of record with the insurer, or in such other manner as may be approved by the director, the insurer may require the return of the certificates of stock theretofore held by the stockholder, and in cancellation and in lieu thereof issue new certificates for such number of shares as the stockholder may then be entitled to, upon the basis of the stockholder’s proportionate interest in the amount of the insurer’s capital stock as determined by the director to be remaining unimpaired at the time of the determination of the amount of impairment under section 41-2852, after deducting from such proportionate interest the amount of such unpaid assessment. The insurer may pay for or issue fractional shares under this subsection.
(b) If a mutual insurer, may levy an assessment upon members as is provided for under section 41-2847.
(2) Neither this section nor section 41-2852 shall be deemed to prohibit the insurer from curing any such deficiency through any lawful means other than those referred to in such sections.
