If there is a material change in financial condition or management, the broker-dealer or investment adviser shall file a new application for licensing. A predecessor licensed under this chapter shall stop conducting its securities business other than winding down transactions and shall file for withdrawal of broker-dealer or investment adviser licensing within 45 days after filing its amendment to effect succession.

4. Change of ownership or control.  A change of ownership or control of a broker-dealer or investment adviser may require the filing of a new application pursuant to a rule adopted or order issued under this chapter.
