RS 22:84     

§84.  Payment for capital stock

A.  Capital stock of any insurer shall be paid-in in cash within twelve months from the date of its charter, and no certificate of shares and no policies shall be issued by it until the whole paid-in capital and minimum surplus required and specified in the articles of incorporation are paid in.  A majority of the directors shall certify on oath that this requirement has been met and the money paid in is held as the capital of the company to be invested as required by this Code.

B.  The stock insurer may borrow a sum of money sufficient to meet additional contributions to surplus which may be required in excess of the minimum capital and surplus stated for a Louisiana insurer, upon agreement with the lender that the loan with interest at a rate not exceeding ten percent per annum shall be repaid only in the event that, after such repayment with interest, the insurer shall be left possessed of sufficient assets to meet all of its liabilities, to maintain a full reserve against all its policies, and to maintain the minimum capital and surplus required by R.S. 22:81.  Such debentures must be issued on a form provided or approved by the commissioner of insurance and registered with his office, and all repayments of principal and payment of interest must be approved by the commissioner.
