(A) A building and loan association organized under this chapter may convert itself into a building and loan association without stock, the capital of which is in the form of savings deposits, by amendment of its articles of incorporation and constitution in the manner set forth in the second paragraph of section 1151.46 of the Revised Code. Upon conversion such association shall be subject to the limitations of this section and section 1151.23 of the Revised Code.
(B) A depositor of such association shall be a voting member and joint owner of the association upon such terms and conditions as the articles of incorporation, constitution, and bylaws of the association provide.
(C) The capital of such association shall be in the form of savings deposits and shall be maintained at a level equal to the amount which would be applicable if the association had not converted itself into an association without stock.
(D) Upon conversion, the holders of shares, stock, or stock credits shall become depositors of such association without further action by them and they shall have all the rights of depositors as set forth in this section. The amount of such savings deposits shall be a sum equal to the value of the shares, stock, or stock credits as shown on the books and records of the association.
(E) In the event of a voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution, or winding up of the association or in the event of any other situation in which the priority of the savings deposits of such association is in controversy, all such savings deposits shall, to the extent of their withdrawal value, be debts of the association not having priority, other than any priority arising or resulting from consensual subordination, over other general creditors of the association and in addition, such savings deposits shall have the same right to share in the remaining assets of the association that they would have if they were shares, stock, or stock credits.
(G) Whenever "share," "stock," or "stock credit" appear in Chapters 1151., 1153., 1155., or 1157. of the Revised Code or in any other section of the Revised Code referred to directly or incorporated by reference in such chapters, unless the context otherwise requires they mean savings deposits in respect of any association without stock; whenever "shareholder" appears in such chapters or sections, unless the context otherwise requires it means depositor in respect of such associations, and whenever "dividend" appears in such chapters or sections, unless the context otherwise requires it means interest in respect of such associations.
