Whenever it shall appear to the commissioner, upon examination or other evidence, that a foreign insurance company is in an unsound condition, or upon notification by the State Tax Commission that the company is delinquent in the payment of taxes due the state, or that it has failed to comply with the law, or that it, its officers, or agents, refused to submit to examination or to perform any legal obligation in relation thereto, he shall revoke or suspend all certificates of authority granted to it or its agents, and shall cause notification thereof to be published in one or more newspapers published in this state. No new business shall thereafter be done by it or its agents in this state while such default or disability continues, nor until its authority to do business is restored by the commissioner. If, upon examination, he is of the opinion that any domestic insurance company is insolvent, or has exceeded its powers, or has failed to comply with any provision of law applicable to it, or that its condition is such as to render its further proceeding hazardous to the public or its policyholders, or upon notification by the State Tax Commission that the company is delinquent in the payment of taxes due the state, he shall suspend its license. If he deems it necessary, he shall apply to a judge of the chancery court to issue an injunction restraining it, in part or in whole from further proceeding with its business. Such judge may, in his discretion, issue the injunction forthwith or upon notice and hearing thereon and, after a full hearing of the matter, may dissolve or modify such injunction or make it permanent, may make all orders and decrees needful in the premises, and may appoint agents or receivers to take possession of the property or effects of the company and to settle its affairs, subject to such rules and orders as the court may, from time to time, prescribe according to the course of proceedings in equity.
