For the purpose of preventing the unfair use of information which may have been obtained by any beneficial owner of an insurer, or director or officer thereof, described in Section 1104.2, by reason of his relationship to such insurer, any profit realized by him from any purchase and sale, or any sale and purchase, of any stock of such insurer within any period of less than six months, unless such stock was acquired in good faith in connection with a debt previously contracted, shall inure to, and be recoverable by, the insurer, irrespective of the intent of the beneficial owner, director or officer who entered into the transaction of holding the stock purchased or not repurchasing the stock sold for a period exceeding six months. Suit to recover such profit may be instituted at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction by the insurer or by the owner of any stock of the insurer in the name of and on behalf of the insurer if the insurer shall fail or refuse to bring such suit within 60 days after request or shall fail diligently to prosecute the same thereafter; but no such suit shall be brought more than two years after the date such profit was realized. This section shall not be construed to cover any transaction where a beneficial owner was not such both at the time of the purchase and sale, or the sale and purchase, of the stock involved, or any transaction or transactions which the commissioner may by rules and regulations exempt as not within the scope of this section or Section 1104.2.
