2017 ORS 732.610¹
Contents of plan

A plan of conversion or reorganization of a domestic mutual insurer must include the following:

(1) A statement of the reasons for the proposed action.

(2) A description of how the plan will be carried out, including, but not limited to, any merger, transfer, assumption, exchange, acquisition, contribution or other transaction included within the plan and a description of any stock holding company, mutual holding company, intermediate stock holding company or other corporation organized pursuant to the plan.

(3) A description of all significant terms of the conversion or reorganization.

(4) A description of the overall effect of the plan on policies issued by the converting mutual insurer. The description must show that policyholder interests collectively are properly preserved and protected and that the plan is fair and equitable to the policyholders.

(5) A statement of the manner and method by which membership interests in the converting mutual insurer will be extinguished and consideration will be provided to the eligible members in accordance with ORS 732.612 (Consideration for membership interest in converting or reorganizing mutual insurer).

(6) The record date for determining whether a member of the converting mutual insurer is an eligible member.

(7) The proposed effective date of the conversion or reorganization or the manner in which the proposed effective date of the conversion or reorganization is established.

(8) The proposed amendments to or restatement of the articles of incorporation and bylaws of the converting mutual insurer and the proposed articles of incorporation and bylaws of any stock holding company, mutual holding company, intermediate stock holding company or other corporation organized pursuant to the plan.

(9) Except as otherwise provided in ORS 732.612 (Consideration for membership interest in converting or reorganizing mutual insurer), the valuation of the converting mutual insurer immediately before the effective date of the conversion.

(10) A description of the significant terms of any offering of shares of capital stock or other securities of an issuer.

(11) The intention, if any, that a director or officer of the converting mutual insurer or converted stock insurer or any stock holding company, mutual holding company, intermediate stock holding company or other corporation organized pursuant to the plan may, within the six-month period following the effective date of the conversion or reorganization, purchase or acquire shares of capital stock or other securities of an issuer to be issued pursuant to the plan.

(12) A provision that all policies in force on the effective date of the conversion or reorganization will remain in force under the terms of those policies. The plan also must provide that on the effective date of the conversion or reorganization, any voting rights of the members provided for under the policies or under the Insurance Code are extinguished. Except for individual policies of life insurance, guaranteed renewable health insurance and noncancelable health insurance issued by the converting mutual insurer, the plan may authorize the converted stock insurer to issue nonparticipating policies as a substitute for participating policies upon the renewal dates of the participating policies.

(13) If applicable, a provision establishing a closed block of individual policies of life insurance, guaranteed renewable health insurance and noncancelable health insurance issued by the converting mutual insurer that are participating policies and in force on the effective date of the conversion or reorganization and for which the converting mutual insurer has an experience-based dividend scale payable in the year in which the plan is adopted by the board of directors of the converting mutual insurer. The plan may provide for conditions under which the converted stock insurer may cease to maintain the closed block and its allocated assets. Regardless of such a cessation, the obligations under the individual policies constituting the closed block business remain the obligations of the converted stock insurer. Dividends on those policies must be apportioned by the board of directors of the converted stock insurer in accordance with the terms of the policies. Assets of the insurer must be allocated to the closed block in an amount producing cash flows that, together with anticipated revenues from the closed block business, are expected to be sufficient to support the closed block business, including payment of claims and those expenses and taxes specified in the plan, and provide for continuation of dividend scales in effect on the effective date if the experience underlying the dividend scales continues. The provision establishing the closed block must provide for appropriate adjustments in the dividend scales if the experience changes. [1997 c.771 §5]
