Section 5-8A-1

Liquidation of solvent banks.

Any solvent bank may dissolve under the provisions of Alabama law relating to voluntary dissolution of a business corporation provided that the superintendent has given his written approval to such dissolution. The superintendent may require the directors to give bond in an amount fixed by him with surety or sureties to be approved by him, payable to the State of Alabama, for the protection of the superintendent and all other persons interested; provided, however, the amount of any such bond required shall not be greater than the total liability of the bank to its depositors and other creditors. Upon receipt of the written approval of the superintendent of the statutory dissolution procedures, it shall be unlawful for said bank to receive any further deposits.
