(2) the plan of conversion complies with the provisions of this act;

(3) the plan of conversion does not unjustly enrich any director, officer, agent or employee of the insurer; and

(4) the new stock insurer would meet minimum requirements to be issued a certificate of authority by the commissioner to transact business in this state and the continued operations of the new stock insurer would not be hazardous to existing or future policyholders or the public.

(b) The amount of consideration provided by the converting insurer to policyholders shall be deemed to be fair and equitable pursuant to subsection (a), if the consideration is at least the amount of statutory surplus attributable to contributions of policyholders.

(c) Upon submission of a plan of conversion, the commissioner may request any additional documents or information in the possession of the insurer or its affiliates as are reasonably necessary to enable the commissioner to make the findings required by this section for the approval of the plan.
