(1)

The paid-in capital of an institution or Oregon stock savings bank may be increased from time to time by resolution of the board of directors directing that all or a part of the retained earnings of the institution or Oregon stock savings bank be transferred to paid-in capital.

(2)

An institution or Oregon stock savings bank may, by resolution of its board of directors and with the approval of the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, apply part of its paid-in capital to the reduction or elimination of any deficit in retained earnings arising from losses.

(3)

An institution or Oregon stock savings bank may, by resolution of its board of directors, create a reserve or reserves out of its retained earnings for any proper purpose or purposes and may abolish any such reserve in the same manner. Retained earnings of the institution or Oregon stock savings bank to the extent so reserved shall not be available for the payment of dividends or other distributions by the institution or Oregon stock savings bank except as expressly permitted by the Bank Act.

(4)

An institution or Oregon stock savings bank may redeem shares of its stock only with the prior approval of the director. A class or series of shares may be designated redeemable upon certain terms and conditions in advance of its issuance with the prior approval of the director, in which event no further approval shall be required to redeem the shares in accordance with the terms and conditions approved.

(5)

The director may refuse to approve a reduction in paid-in capital under subsection (2) of this section or redemption of shares under subsection (4) of this section if the director determines that the remaining paid-in capital of the institution or Oregon stock savings bank would be inadequate for the safe and sound operation of the institution or Oregon stock savings bank.

(6)

The director may by rule or order waive the requirement for prior approval of redemptions of shares. [1989 c.324 §35; 1997 c.631 §72]
