17:12B-248. Capital stock and surplus
In the case of an application for the incorporation of a capital stock association, the proceeds from the sale of the capital stock having par value shall be set apart to the extent of the par value and shall be maintained as the stated capital of the association. The proceeds from the sale of capital stock without par value shall be set apart to the extent provided in the certificate of incorporation as approved by the commissioner and shall be maintained as the stated capital of the association. No loan shall be made by a capital stock association secured in any manner by its stock.
The commissioner shall determine the minimum amount to be set apart from the proceeds of stock to be subscribed and maintained as the stated capital of the capital stock association, with provision made for full payment therefor in cash. In addition, a capital surplus account shall be established for such association in an amount satisfactory to the commissioner, provided however, that in no event shall the aggregate of stated capital and capital surplus be less than $500,000.00. Such stated capital and capital surplus shall not be available for dividends or other distributions to stockholders, except upon prior written authorization of the commissioner or in the event of dissolution and final liquidation, provided, however, that the board of such association, by appropriate action, may apply all or any part of capital surplus to the reduction or write-off of any deficit arising from losses or diminution in value of its assets, or may transfer to or designate as part of the accounts authorized or required by paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of section 128 (C. 17:12B-128) of this act, all or any part of any capital surplus.
All shares of capital stock shall be transferable by the holders thereof in accordance with the bylaws of such association.
