A company organized under or incorporated by a foreign government shall also furnish a supplementary statement for the year ending on the preceding thirty-first day of December, verified by the oath of the manager of such company residing in the United States, which shall comprise a report of its business and affairs in the United States, as required from companies organized in this state, together with any other information that may be required by the superintendent. If such annual statement is satisfactory evidence to the superintendent of the solvency and ability of the company to meet all its engagements at maturity, and that the deposit is maintained as provided by section 3927.06 of the Revised Code, the superintendent shall issue, during the month of January in each year or within sixty days thereafter, renewal certificates of authority to the agent of the company, certified copies of which shall be filed in the county recorder's office of each county in which an agency is located and retained therewith for a minimum of two years from the date of filing. Such certificates shall be the authority for such agents to issue new policies in this state for the ensuing year.
