Notwithstanding the definition of "savings and loan association" set forth in division (A) of section 1151.01 of the Revised Code, the superintendent of savings and loan associations may authorize the secretary of state to record articles of incorporation of an interim savings and loan association organized under this chapter to facilitate a merger, consolidation, or acquisition of an existing association, or to facilitate any other transaction the superintendent may approve. In connection therewith, the superintendent may waive the minimum authorized capital requirements of section 1151.08 of the Revised Code and the statutory reserve and net worth requirements established pursuant to section 1151.33 of the Revised Code, and he may deviate from the provisions relating to the consideration of applications to organize an association as set forth in this chapter. In the event that the merger, consolidation, or acquisition or such other transaction as the superintendent may approve does not occur within a one-year period after the date upon which such interim savings and loan association is incorporated, its articles of incorporation shall be declared void by the superintendent. Such one-year period may not be extended.
Effective Date: 07-14-1987 .
