(a) it has received a certificate of authority, if an insurer, or
(b) it has completed its initial organization and financing if a corporation other than an insurer, shall solicit or receive funds in exchange for any new issue of its corporate securities, other than through a stock dividend, until it has applied to the commissioner for, and has been granted, a solicitation permit.

(a) The funds proposed to be secured are excessive in amount for the purpose intended, or
(b) the proposed securities or the manner of their distribution are inequitable, or
(c) the issuance of the securities would jeopardize the interests of policyholders or the holders of other securities of the insurer or corporation.
