17:52-11. Beginning of corporate existence
A. Upon the filing of the certificate of incorporation pursuant to section 10 of this act, the subscribers to the certificate, their successors and assigns, shall be a corporation by the name stated in the certificate, subject to the provisions of this act, and subject to the provisions of Title 14, Corporations, General, of the Revised Statutes, to the extent that the provisions of Title 14 are not inconsistent with the provisions of this act. Every corporation created pursuant to this act shall be subject to dissolution as otherwise by law provided, and shall be empowered to exercise all the powers authorized by this act, whether or not such powers are specifically set forth in its certificate of incorporation.
B. If, in approving the application for charter, the Commissioner of Banking and Insurance has limited the transaction of the corporation's business to a single county, or to 2 or more contiguous counties, the corporation shall have power to transact business only in the county or counties designated by the commissioner in his approval of the application. For the purposes of this act, a corporation is deemed to transact business in a county, if it makes a loan to a borrower whose sole or principal place of business is within the county, or if it directly or indirectly invests in lands or tangible personal property located within the county, or if it purchases or otherwise invests in securities or obligations of an issuer whose sole or principal place of business is located within the county.
