Section 5-7A-63

Resulting bank as continuation of savings institution.

Except insofar as the superintendent requires the converting savings institution to terminate certain activities and dispose of certain assets in order to meet the requirements applicable to state chartered banks, upon the conversion of any savings institution into a state chartered bank, the corporate existence of such savings institution shall not terminate, but such resulting bank shall be deemed to be a continuation of the savings institution so converted, and all property of the converted savings institution including its rights, titles and interests in and to all property of whatsoever kind, character or description, whether real, personal or mixed, and things in action and every right, privilege, interest and asset of any conceivable value or benefit, and all obligations, liabilities, charges, liens, encumbrances, judgments, and claims then existing or pertaining to it or which would inure to or against it, shall immediately by operation of law and without the necessity of any conveyance or transfer and without the necessity of any further act or deed remain and be vested in and continue to be the property or obligation of such resulting bank into which the savings institution has converted. Subject to the laws, provisions and regulations applicable to state chartered banks, such resulting bank shall have, hold, enjoy and be obligated the same in its own right as fully and to the same extent as the same was possessed, held, enjoyed and encumbered by the converting savings institution. All pending actions, and other judicial or administrative proceedings to which the converting savings institution is a party shall not be deemed to have abated or to have been discontinued by reason of such conversion, but may be prosecuted to final judgment or order in the same manner as if such conversion had not occurred, and the resulting bank may continue such action in its corporate name as a state chartered bank, and any judgment or order may be entered for or against it in such corporate name.
