3907.08 Commencement of business.

When a company is fully organized and has deposited the amount of securities required by section 3907.07 of the Revised Code, it shall file with the superintendent of insurance a duly certified copy of its articles of incorporation, a copy of the approval of the attorney general, and a copy of its bylaws or constitution. If the superintendent finds that the company is duly organized and that its capital stock has been subscribed, paid in, and invested as required by law, unless he finds the name assumed by the company so nearly similar to the name of another company doing business in this state as to lead to confusion or uncertainty on the part of the public, he shall furnish the company with his certificate of such deposit, and with a license reciting that the company has complied with the law and is entitled to transact the business defined in section 3911.01 of the Revised Code, which license shall be its authority to commence business and issue policies.

So long as the company complies with the law, the superintendent, annually, upon its application, shall renew such license. Certified copies thereof may be used in evidence for and against the company in all actions.
