SEC. 81-9-29. Liquidation; separate assets for creditors; corporate stock.
Where a bank chartered under the laws of the State of Mississippi has failed, or may hereafter fail, and in the process of liquidation or after reorganization or reopening of such failed bank certain assets are placed in a separate fund for the benefit of creditors of such bank, it is found that said bank, or the owner of such trust assets, owns stock in, has a lien on, or is in any way interested in the stock of a corporation, organized and doing business under the laws of the State of Mississippi, and such bank, or owners of such trust assets, is unable to sell such stock at its reasonable fair value, and such stock is less than ten percent of the outstanding stock of said corporation, and the remainder of the stock of such corporation is owned by a small number of persons, then the chancery court of the county in which said bank is located is authorized and empowered in a suit brought for that purpose, to fix the value of said stock. In the event the holders of the majority of the stock will not pay the value as fixed by the court then the court shall order the assets of said corporation, or a sufficient amount thereof, to be sold to pay the value of said stock as fixed by the court, if the surplus undivided profits and other accumulations of said corporation are sufficient to take care of the value of said stock as fixed by the court without seriously interfering with the continued operation of said corporation.
