1161.58 [Repealed Effective 1/1/2018] Loans to and investments in capital stock, obligations, and other securities of service corporations.

(A) For purposes of this section, "service corporation" includes any subsidiary of a service corporation.

(B) A savings bank may invest a total of ten per cent of its assets in the capital stock, obligations, and other securities of service corporations that are organized under the laws of this state to provide services to domestic or foreign savings banks, the capital stock of which is available for purchase only by savings banks.

(C)

(1) If no savings bank holds more than fifty per cent of the capital stock of the corporation, the corporation may provide services compatible with the purposes, powers, and duties of savings banks. The service corporation also may provide mechanical, clerical, and record keeping services for other corporations, other persons, or governmental units subject to the written approval of the superintendent of savings banks.

(2) Notwithstanding the investment limitation of division (C)(1) of this section, a savings bank may make any loan authorized by any other section of this chapter to a service corporation or to a joint venture of the service corporation in which a savings bank has an investment of not more than ten per cent of the service corporation's capital stock. The aggregate of all loans shall not exceed fifty per cent of the savings bank's net worth.

(D)

(1) If one savings bank stockholder holds more than fifty per cent of the corporation's capital stock, the service corporation may provide only such services as the superintendent authorizes by rules adopted in accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code.

(2) Notwithstanding the investment limitation of division (D)(1) of this section, a savings bank may make any loan authorized by any other section of this chapter to a service corporation or to a joint venture of the service corporation in which a savings bank has made an investment pursuant to this division. The aggregate of all loans shall not exceed twenty per cent of the savings bank's net worth.

(3) In the adoption of rules authorized by division (D)(1) of this section, the superintendent may authorize services that he determines to be so related to the business of savings banks as to be a proper incident to a savings bank. In determining whether a particular service is a proper incident to a savings bank, the superintendent shall consider whether its performance by a service corporation can reasonably be expected to produce benefits to the public, including greater convenience, increased competition, or gains in efficiency, that outweigh possible adverse effects, including undue concentration of resources, decreased or unfair competition, conflicts of interests, or unsound savings bank practices.

(E) The superintendent, at any time, may examine the affairs of any service corporation in which a savings bank organized under the laws of this state owns stock. Whenever a service corporation or a savings bank fails to meet the requirements and limitations set forth in this section, all loans or investments by a savings bank to or in the service corporation constitute unauthorized investments.

(F) Notwithstanding the investment limitations of this section, a savings bank that meets the requirements of section 1161.53 of the Revised Code may make any loan authorized by any other section of this chapter to a service corporation or to a joint venture of the service corporation, provided that the savings bank has no investment in the service corporation and that no savings bank owns more than ten per cent of the service corporation's capital stock.
