Title 7, Chapter 1, Section 430 (7-1-430)

(a) Except as otherwise provided in this Code section, a holder of or subscriber to shares of a bank or trust company shall be under no obligation to the bank or trust company or its creditors with respect to such shares or subscription other than the obligation to pay the full consideration remaining due to the company upon such shares or subscription. Such obligation may be enforced by the bank or trust company and its successors or assigns, or by a shareholder suing derivatively, or by a receiver appointed under this chapter.

(b) Every subscriber for shares not fully paid and every original holder of shares not fully paid which were issued contrary to Code Section 7-1-417 and every transferee or assignee of a subscription for shares or of shares with knowledge or notice that the shares are not fully paid and were issued contrary to Code Section 7-1-417 shall continue personally liable thereon as provided in subsection (a) of this Code section, notwithstanding any transfer or assignment of such shares or subscription for such shares.

(c) Any person becoming a transferee or assignee of shares or of a subscription for shares in good faith and without knowledge or notice that the full consideration therefor has not been paid shall not be personally liable thereon for any unpaid portion of such consideration.

(d) An executor, administrator, conservator, guardian, trustee, assignee for the benefit of creditors, receiver, or other fiduciary shall not be personally liable to the bank or trust company or its creditors as a holder of or subscriber for its shares; but the estate and funds in his hands or under his control shall be so liable. Nothing in the foregoing shall relieve any fiduciary from liability for a breach of trust.

(e) No bailee or nominee and no pledgee or other holder of shares as collateral security shall be personally liable as a shareholder, but the bailor or real party in interest or pledgor or other person transferring such shares as collateral shall be considered the holder thereof for purposes of liability under this Code section.

(f) No liability under this Code section shall be asserted against a subscriber or shareholder more than six years after the date on which the shares for which payment is sought were to have been fully paid pursuant to the contract of sale or subscription agreement or, if no such date is provided for in the contract of sale or subscription agreement, more than six years from the date of the contract of sale or subscription agreement, whether or not such contract or agreement is under seal.

(g) The subscription agreement or contract of sale may prescribe other penalties for failure to make payments when due; but no penalty working a forfeiture of a subscription, or of the amounts paid thereon, shall be declared as against any subscriber unless the amount due thereon shall remain unpaid for a period of 20 days after written demand has been made therefor. The delinquent subscriber or his legal representative shall be entitled to be paid the excess of the sale proceeds realized from the sale by the bank or trust company of such subscribed shares over the sum of:

(1) The amount due and unpaid on the subscription; and (2) The reasonable expenses incurred in selling the shares;

but in no event shall the delinquent subscriber or his legal representative be entitled to be paid an amount greater than the amount paid by said subscriber on his subscription.

(h) The board of directors shall have power to compromise, on such terms and conditions as the board may prescribe, any claim, dispute, or action arising out of a subscription for shares when in the judgment of the board it is in the best interests of the bank or trust company to do so.
