(3) To the extent that the appraisal is based on a capitalization of the pro forma income of the converted stock insurer, the appraisal must indicate the basis for determination of the income to be derived from any proceeds of the sale of stock and demonstrate the appropriateness of the earnings-multiple used, including assumptions made regarding future earnings growth.
(4) To the extent that the appraisal is based on the comparison of the capital stock of the converted stock insurer with outstanding capital stock of existing stock entities offering comparable insurance products, the existing stock entities must be reasonably comparable to the converting stock insurer in terms of such factors as size, market area, competitive conditions, profit history and expected future earnings.
(5) In those instances when the superintendent determines that the appraisal is materially deficient or substantially incomplete, the superintendent may deem the entire conversion plan materially deficient or substantially incomplete and decline to further process or reject the application for conversion.

[1997, c. 344, §4 (NEW).]
K. For the purpose of determining whether a conversion plan meets the requirements of this subsection and any other relevant provisions of this Title and Title 24-A, the superintendent may employ staff personnel and outside consultants including, without limitation, financial advisors, investment bankers, actuaries, attorneys and accountants. All costs related to the review of a conversion plan, including those costs attributable to the use of staff personnel, must be borne by the organization making the filing. [1997, c. 344, §4 (NEW).]

M. The superintendent may aggregate any transactions that are part of a plan or series of like transactions to determine whether those transactions constitute a conversion. [1997, c. 344, §4 (NEW).]
N. The superintendent, in the superintendent's sole discretion, may determine when an application for conversion under this subsection is complete and may request additional information from the organization as the superintendent determines necessary to review the application and conversion plan. The superintendent may also conduct an examination under Title 24-A, section 221 to obtain any information the superintendent determines necessary in connection with an application for conversion or transaction or series of transactions that the superintendent determines constitute a conversion under paragraph M. The failure of the organization to provide the information or cooperate in the examination, in addition to other applicable penalties, constitutes grounds for denial of the application for conversion. [1997, c. 344, §4 (NEW).]
O. The Attorney General has the right to intervene as a party in a proceeding before the superintendent and, if the Attorney General intervenes, has the right to receive any documents or other information received by the superintendent in connection with the proceeding.
