(from Ch. 17, par. 373)
Receiver's powers; court directions.
Upon the order of the court wherein the Commissioner's complaint for the
dissolution or winding up of the affairs of the state bank was filed,
the receiver for the bank shall have the power and authority and is charged
with the duties and responsibilities as follows:
(1) He or she may sell and compound all bad and doubtful debts on such terms
the court shall direct.
(2) He or she may sell the real and personal property of the bank on such
as the court shall direct.
(3) He or she may petition the court for the authority to borrow money, and
pledge the assets of the bank as security therefor, whereupon the practice
and procedure shall be as follows:
(a) Upon the filing of such petition the court shall
set a date for the hearing of such petition and shall prescribe the form and manner of the notice to be given to the officers, stockholders, creditors or other persons interested in such bank.
(b) Upon such hearing, any officer, stockholder,
creditor or person interested shall have the right to be heard.
(c) If the court grants such authority, then the
receiver may borrow money and issue evidences of indebtedness therefor, and may secure the payment of such loan by the mortgage, pledge, transfer in trust or hypothecation of any or all property and assets of such bank, whether real, personal, or mixed, superior to any charge thereon for the expenses of liquidation.
(d) Such loan may be obtained in such amounts upon
such terms and conditions, and with provisions for repayment as may be deemed necessary or expedient.
(e) Such loan may be obtained for the purpose of
facilitating liquidation, protecting or preserving the assets, expediting the making of distributions to depositors and other creditors, providing for the expenses of administration and liquidation, aiding in the reopening or reorganization of such bank or its merger or consolidation with another bank, or in the sale of its assets.
(f) The receiver shall be under no personal
obligation to repay any such loan and shall have authority to take any action necessary or proper to consummate such loan and to provide for the repayment thereof, and may, when required, give bond for the faithful performance of all undertakings in connection therewith.
(g) Prior to petitioning the court for authority to
make any such loan, the receiver may make application for or negotiate any loan subject to obtaining an order of the court approving the same.
(4) He or she may make and carry out agreements with other banks or with the
United States or any agency thereof which has insured the bank's
deposits, in whole or in part, for the payment or assumption of the bank's
liabilities, in whole or in part, and he or she may transfer assets and make
guaranties in connection therewith.
(5) After the expiration of 12 weeks after the first publication of
the Commissioner's notice as provided in Section 59, he or she shall file with
the court a correct list of all creditors of the bank, as shown by its
books, who have not presented their claims and the amount of their
respective claims after allowing all just credits, deductions and set-offs
as shown by the books of the bank. Such claims so filed shall
be deemed proven, unless objections are filed thereto by a party or parties
interested therein within such time as is fixed by the court.
(6) At the termination of his or her administration, he or she
shall petition the
court for the entry of a judgment of dissolution. After a
hearing upon such
notice as the court may prescribe, the court may enter a judgment of
dissolution whereupon the bank's charter is terminated.
The provisions of this Section do not apply to the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation as receiver, which shall derive its powers and perform
its duties pursuant to the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and regulations
