221.0901(8)(b) (b) Except as otherwise provided in this paragraph, the division may approve an application under sub. (3) (a) for an acquisition of an in-state bank holding company that owns one or more in-state banks that have been in existence for less than 5 years, if the applicant divests itself of those in-state banks within 2 years after the date of acquisition of the in-state bank holding company by the applicant. This paragraph does not apply if the applicant is an in-state bank holding company or in-state bank.
221.0901(8)(c) (c) Paragraphs (a) and (b) do not apply to an in-state bank that is the surviving bank of a merger with an in-state bank that had been in existence and continuous operation for at least 5 years at the time of the merger or would have been in existence and in continuous operation for at least 5 years as of the proposed date of acquisition, if the merger had not taken place.
221.0901(8)(d) (d) Paragraph (a) does not apply to the merger or acquisition by an out-of-state banking organization of all or substantially all of the assets of an in-state bank, or of an in-state bank holding company that owns one or more in-state banks, if all of the following apply:
221.0901(8)(d)1. 1. The laws of the home state of the out-of-state banking organization allow an in-state bank or in-state bank holding company to acquire an out-of-state banking organization in the home state.
221.0901(8)(d)2. 2. The division determines under par. (e) that the laws of the home state of the out-of-state banking organization are reciprocal with respect to mergers and acquisitions.
221.0901(8)(e)1. 1. The division shall periodically publish a list of states that the division has found have laws that are reciprocal for purposes of par. (d) 2.

221.0901(8)(e)2. 2. The division shall make determinations under subd. 1. in writing. The division may not determine that the laws of a state are reciprocal under subd. 1. unless the division finds that the laws of that state allow an in-state bank or in-state bank holding company to merge with or acquire an out-of-state banking organization under terms and conditions that are substantially similar to the terms and conditions under this section. In making such a finding, the division shall consider, at a minimum, whether the laws of that state discriminate in any way against an in-state bank or in-state bank holding company and whether the laws of that state impose regulatory burdens that are substantially more restrictive than the requirements under this section that apply to an out-of-state banking organization seeking to merge or acquire an in-state bank or in-state bank holding company.
221.0901(9) (9)Reports. Each bank holding company that controls an in-state bank or an in-state bank holding company shall submit to the division reports under s. 221.0526.
