(1) The shares of stock of a bank shall be deemed personal property and shall be transferred on the books of the bank in such manner as the bylaws thereof shall direct.

(2) All transfers of voting securities of a bank by sale, gift or otherwise shall be reported to the director thirty (30) days prior to such transfer and shall be approved by the director prior to such transfer if, immediately after the transfer, the acquiring person or persons acting in concert will own, control, or hold with power to vote ten percent (10%) or more of any class of voting securities of the bank. The director may disapprove a transfer of voting securities if he finds that the transferee has been removed from a position as a director, officer or employee of a bank or other financial institution pursuant to an order of a state or federal agency, has been convicted of a felony or if in his opinion the transferee does not satisfy the requirements of a stockholder, director or officer as set out in section 26-202, Idaho Code. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to a voting trust existing prior to July 1, 1978.
