1. Is insolvent as defined in section 47-1201.
2. Has shown that the person is not a person of honesty, truthfulness and good character.

4. Has been convicted in any state of a felony or any crime of breach of trust or dishonesty.
5. Has had a final judgment entered against the person in a civil action on grounds of fraud, deceit or misrepresentation and the conduct on which the judgment is based indicates that it would be contrary to the interest of the public to allow that person to be licensed or to control or manage a licensee.
6. Has had an order entered against the person involving fraud, deceit or misrepresentation by any administrative agency of this state, the federal government or any other state or territory of the United States and that the facts relating to the order indicate that it would be contrary to the interest of the public to allow that person to be licensed or to control or manage a licensee.

B. If any person to whom a license is issued or who has applied for a license is indicted or informed against for forgery, embezzlement, obtaining money under false pretenses, extortion, criminal conspiracy to defraud, or a like offense or offenses, and a certified copy of the indictment or information or other proper evidence of that indictment or information is filed with the deputy director, the deputy director may suspend the license issued to the licensee or refuse to grant a license to an applicant pending trial on the indictment or information.
C. It is sufficient cause for the suspension or revocation of the license if an owner, officer, director, member, partner, trustee or employee, while acting in the course of the premium finance business, or a person who is entitled to vote more than twenty percent of the outstanding voting shares of the licensed corporation or a person who has a controlling interest in a licensed limited liability company, partnership, association or trust has acted or failed to act in the same manner as would be cause for suspending or revoking a license of the person to whom the license was issued.
D. The deputy director may deny a branch office permit to a person or suspend or revoke a branch office permit for the same reasons sufficient under this section for denial, suspension or revocation of a license.
