§412-A. Capital

1. Requirement.  Every financial institution shall establish and maintain adequate levels of capital as set forth in rules adopted by the superintendent.

Minimum capital levels established by the superintendent may be no less stringent than those applicable to federally chartered institutions with similar charters.

2. Exception.  The superintendent may approve, in writing, capital levels below the required minimum as considered necessary or appropriate under the particular circumstances of a financial institution.
