Tex. Ins. Code Section 862.153
Failure of Shareholder to Pay


If a shareholder of the insurance company who is given notice under Section 862.152 (Making Good on Impairment) does not pay the amount called for by the company under that section, the company may:


require the return of the original certificate of stock held by the shareholder; and


issue a new certificate for a number of shares that the shareholder may be entitled to in the proportion that the value of the funds of the company, computed without inclusion of any money or other property paid by shareholders in response to the notice under Section 862.152 (Making Good on Impairment), bears to the total amount of the original capital and the minimum surplus of the company required by Section 822.054 (Capital Stock and Surplus Requirements) or 822.210 (Commissioner May Require Larger Capital and Surplus Amounts), subject to Subchapter B, Chapter 404 (Financial Condition).


The value of any shares for which new certificates are issued under Subsection (a)(2) shall be computed under the direction of the commissioner. The insurance company shall pay for the fractional parts of shares.


Any interested person may pay all or any part of the amount of the deficit resulting from a shareholder default under Subsection (a). The company shall issue to each person who makes a payment a stock certificate that is representative of the number of shares to which the person is entitled. The certificate must be for the number of shares in proportion to the total number of forfeited shares that the payment made by the person bears to the deficit that resulted from the forfeited shares.
