(205 ILCS 5/26) (from Ch. 17, par. 333)
    Sec. 26. Converting national banks or insured savings association; issuance of charter to resulting State bank. After receipt by the Commissioner of the papers specified in Section 25, he shall approve or disapprove the plan of conversion. The Commissioner shall not approve the plan of conversion unless he shall be of the opinion and finds:
    (a) That the resulting bank meets the requirements of this Act for the formation of a new bank at the proposed place of business of the resulting bank;
    (b) That the same matters exist in respect of the resulting bank which would have been required under Section 10 of this Act for the organization of a new bank; and
    (c) That the plan of conversion is fair to all persons affected.
    If the Commissioner disapproves the plan of conversion, he shall state his objections in writing and give an opportunity to the converting bank or insured savings association to amend the plan of conversion to obviate such objections. The conversion, unless a later date is specified in the plan of conversion, shall become effective upon the Commissioner's approval and the charter proposed in the plan of conversion shall constitute the charter. The Commissioner shall issue a certificate of conversion which shall specify the name of the converting bank or insured savings association, the name of the resulting bank, and the charter provided for by said plan of conversion. Such certificate shall be conclusive evidence of the conversion and of the correctness of all proceedings therefor in all courts and places, and such certificate shall be recorded.
