complied with the requirements of this chapter and all other requirements imposed on the applicant by law; and


paid any deposit imposed by law; and


the operational history of the applicant indicates a condition such that the expanded operation of the applicant in this state or the applicant’s operations outside this state will not create a condition that might be hazardous to the applicant’s policyholders or creditors or to the public, when that operational history is reviewed in conjunction with:

the kinds and nature of risks insured;


the financial condition of the applicant and the applicant’s ownership;


the applicant’s proposed method of operation;
