(1) When capital stock is mentioned in the articles of incorporation of a savings bank, it means the authorized capital. The organization of the savings bank may be completed and business commenced when a sum equal to five per cent of the authorized capital is subscribed and paid in and the names and addresses of its officers and not less than two copies of its constitution and bylaws have been filed with and approved by the superintendent of savings banks.

(2) No corporation shall transact any business, except a business that is incidental and necessary to its preliminary organization, until it has been authorized by the superintendent to do so.

(3) No amendment to the constitution or bylaws shall become effective until approved by the superintendent.

(4) The authorized capital of the corporation shall be not less than two million dollars nor more than ten million dollars, as the superintendent may determine. In addition, the superintendent may, in his discretion, fix the amount of reserve funds to be established by the sale of the stock at a premium and the amount of the expense fund for operating losses to be created by nonrefundable contributions.

(5) Five years after the savings bank commences business, any remaining balance in the expense fund shall be transferred to the reserve funds, if the savings bank is on a profitable operating basis as determined by the superintendent.

(B) The stock sold by any savings bank shall be accounted for to the savings bank in the full amount paid for it. No commission or fee shall be paid for selling the stock. The superintendent shall refuse authority to commence business to any savings bank if commissions, contributions, or fees have been paid or contracted to be paid, directly or indirectly, by anyone, for selling or securing subscriptions for stock in the savings bank.

(C) Division (B) of this section does not apply to any sale of stock by a savings bank after authority has been given to the savings bank to commence business under section 1161.12 of the Revised Code or after it has converted from a savings and loan association pursuant to section 1161.63 of the Revised Code or from a bank pursuant to section 1161.631 of the Revised Code.
