(2) The exclusive authority to manage the institution is vested in a board of managers or directors that is elected or appointed by the owners, and that operates in substantially the same manner as, and has substantially the same rights, powers, privileges, duties, responsibilities, as a board of directors of a bank chartered as a corporation in the State;
(3) Neither State law, nor the institution's operating agreement, bylaws, or other organizational documents provide that an owner of the institution is liable for the debts, liabilities, and obligations of the institution in excess of the amount of the owner's investment; and
(4) Neither State law, nor the institution's operating agreement, bylaws, or other organizational documents require the consent of any other owner of the institution in order for an owner to transfer an ownership interest in the institution, including voting rights.
(b) For purposes of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act and this Chapter,
(1) Each of the terms “stockholder” and “shareholder” includes an owner of any interest in a bank chartered as an LLC, including a member or participant;
(2) The term “director” includes a manager or director of a bank chartered as an LLC, or other person who has, with respect to such a bank, authority substantially similar to that of a director of a corporation;
(3) The term “officer” includes an officer of a bank chartered as an LLC, or other person who has, with respect to such a bank, authority substantially similar to that of an officer of a corporation; and
(4) Each of the terms “voting stock,” “voting shares,” and “voting securities” includes ownership interests in a bank chartered as an LLC, as well as any certificates or other evidence of such ownership interests.
