(3) The insurer has failed to comply with the applicable provisions of the insurance statutes of this State, any administrative rules promulgated thereunder or any order of the commissioner;
(4) The business of the insurer is being conducted fraudulently; or
(5) The insurer has consented to administrative supervision.
