AS 06.26.680. Authority to Purchase Assets of Another Trust Company.

(a) A trust company with the prior written approval of the department may purchase all or substantially all of the assets of another trust company, including the right to control accounts established with the trust accounts. Except as otherwise expressly provided by another statute, the purchase by a trust company of all or part of the assets of another trust company does not make the purchasing trust company responsible for a liability or obligation of the selling trust company that the purchasing trust company does not expressly assume. Except as otherwise provided by statute, AS 06.26.450 - 06.26.480 do not govern or prohibit the purchase by a trust company of all or part of the assets of a person who is not a trust company or an exempt private trust company.

(b) To purchase assets under (a) of this section, a trust company shall file with the department an application in the form required by the department. The department shall investigate the condition of the purchaser and seller and may require the submission of additional information it considers necessary to make an informed decision. The department shall approve the purchase if

(1) the purchasing trust company will be solvent after the purchase and have sufficient capitalization for its operations and location;

(2) the purchasing trust company has complied with all applicable statutes and regulations in this state;

(3) all fiduciary obligations and liabilities of the purchasing trust company and selling trust company have been properly discharged or otherwise lawfully assumed by the purchasing trust company;

(4) all conditions imposed by the department have been satisfied or otherwise resolved; and

(5) all expenses incurred by the department and all required fees have been paid.

(c) A purchase under this section is effective on the date the department approves the purchase unless the purchase agreement provides for, and the department consents to, a different effective date.
