(1) When the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services revokes a registration, the director may take possession of all business records and all bank accounts of the registrant and retain possession of them pending the further proceedings specified in this section. The director shall inventory all the business records and all bank accounts of the registrant. The director shall file one copy of the inventory in the office of the director and one copy in the office of the clerk of the circuit court of the county in which the principal place of business of the registrant is located and shall mail one copy to each shareholder or partner of the registrant at the last-known address of the shareholder or partner. The clerk of the court shall file the inventory as a pending proceeding and give it a case number. The director by rule may delegate the director’s authority under this section relating to the inventory of business records and bank accounts of a registrant.
(2) If any person refuses to permit the director to take possession of business records and bank accounts under subsection (1) of this section, the director may apply to the circuit court of the county in which the principal place of business of the registrant is located for an order appointing a receiver, who may be the director, to take possession.
(3) The business records and bank accounts of the registrant shall be liquidated. If a receiver has not been appointed, the director shall apply for appointment by the court in which the inventory was filed. The liquidation shall proceed as provided by law for liquidation of a private corporation in receivership.
(4) The expenses of the receiver and attorney fees, as well as all expenditures required in the liquidation proceedings, shall be fixed by the director, subject to the approval of the court, and, upon certification by the director, shall be paid out of the funds in the hands of the director as such receiver.
