(2) However, control is not presumed to exist if proxies have been obtained by an official of the person solely in connection with voting at a meeting of the owners of the person.
Rebuttal of presumption

(c)(1) Notwithstanding the presumption of control, the Commissioner, on application of an insurer, may find that a person presumed to control an insurer does not have control of the insurer.
(2) In addition, the Commissioner, after notice and an opportunity to be heard, may find that a person not presumed to have control of an insurer does have control of the insurer.
