32-1-465. Limit on loans to officer, director, or principal shareholder. (1) Except as provided in subsection (2), a bank may not extend credit to an officer, director, or principal shareholder unless the extension of credit is in an amount that, when aggregated with the amount of all outstanding extensions of credit by that bank to all officers, directors, or principal shareholders, does not exceed the bank's unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus.
(2) A bank with deposits of less than $100 million may by resolution of its board of directors increase the general limit in subsection (1) to a limit that does not exceed two times the bank's unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus if:
(a) the board of directors determines that a higher limit is consistent with prudent, safe, and sound banking practices in light of the bank's experience in lending to officers, directors, and principal shareholders and is necessary to attract or retain directors or to prevent restricting the availability of credit in small communities;
(b) the resolution sets forth the facts and reasoning on which the board of directors bases the finding, including the amount of the bank's lending to officers, directors, and principal shareholders as a percentage of the bank's unimpaired capital and unimpaired surplus as of the date of the resolution;
(c) the bank has submitted the resolution to the department; and
(d) the bank meets or exceeds, on a fully phased-in basis, all applicable capital requirements established by the department.
