CHAPTER 8. Voluntary Liquidation [720 - 721]
  ( Chapter 8 added by Stats. 2011, Ch. 243, Sec. 2. )


Any licensee that voluntarily has ceased to do the business for which it is licensed shall immediately notify the commissioner and proceed to liquidate its affairs. Any share or deposit or other sum that has not been paid to the person entitled thereto within six months after the licensee ceased to conduct a business shall be paid into the State Treasury. The deposits with the State Treasury shall be deemed to have been received under the provisions of Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 1500) of Title 10 of Part 3 of the Code of Civil Procedure and shall be subject to claim or other disposition as provided in that chapter. If the commissioner has reason to conclude that the liquidation of the licensee is not being safely or expeditiously conducted, he or she may take possession of the business and property of the licensee in the same manner and with the same effect and subject to the same rights accorded the licensee as if he or she had taken possession pursuant to Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 600), and he or she may proceed to liquidate the licensee’s affairs in the same manner as provided in that article. When the licensee has been completely liquidated, its corporate existence shall be dissolved in the manner provided by law.

(Added by Stats. 2011, Ch. 243, Sec. 2. (SB 664) Effective January 1, 2012.)


If the licensee referred to in Section 720 is a state-chartered credit union and the commissioner has taken possession of the business and property of the credit union, the commissioner may appoint a liquidating agent or a liquidating committee of three members of the credit union to liquidate the business and assets of the credit union in the manner provided in Article 2 (commencing with Section 15250) of Chapter 9 of Division 5, except that, in lieu of the certificate required under Section 15252, the commissioner shall prepare and file in the office of the Secretary of State a certificate of commencement of liquidation proceedings upon taking possession of the business and assets, and the commissioner or his or her authorized deputy shall countersign the certificate referred to in Sections 15257 and 15258 whenever liquidation is involuntary. The commissioner may, however, prepare and file a final certificate whenever he or she retains possession of the assets of any credit union for the purpose of liquidation. The liquidating agent need not be a member of the credit union to be liquidated and may be a person, firm, or corporation, as determined by the commissioner.
