2. The issuer or any dealer or salesman designated to engage in the sale of the securities has violated any provision of this chapter, or any rule or order of the commission thereunder.

3. The sale of the securities works or would tend to work a fraud or deceit upon the purchasers thereof, or is or would be unfair or inequitable to the purchasers.

4. The issuer is insolvent, or is in an unsound financial condition.

5. The issuer has refused to permit the commission to examine its affairs, or has failed or refused to furnish information required by this chapter, or any rule or order of the commission thereunder.

(a) Has been convicted within five years preceding the filing of the application for registration of securities, or at any time thereafter, of a felony or misdemeanor involving a transaction in securities, or of which fraud is an essential element.
