Sec. 5927.  (1) If a mutual insurer becomes insolvent, its board of directors by a majority vote may request in its petition that the commissioner waive the requirements imposing notice to and policyholder approval of the planned conversion.  The petition shall specify both of the following:

(a) The method and basis for the issuance of the converted insurer's shares of its capital stock to an independent party in connection with an investment by the independent party in an amount sufficient to restore the insurer to a sound financial condition.

(b) That the conversion shall be accomplished without consideration to the past, present, or future policyholders, if the commissioner finds that the value of the insurer, due to the insolvency, is insufficient to warrant consideration.

(2) If the commissioner, upon review of the plan of conversion and after a financial examination, finds that the mutual insurer no longer meets statutory requirements with respect to capital, surplus, deposits, and assets, the commissioner may waive, by a written order, the requirements of section 5903(6). 1
