Every company, before transacting any business in the State of Oklahoma, under Section 481 et seq. of this title, shall deposit with the Insurance Commissioner of the state a copy of its charter or articles of incorporation and a statement signed and sworn to by its president and secretary, showing the assets and liabilities.
