  2.  Consideration given under a contract between a depository institution and a related entity to facilitate the sale of insurance shall not be more limited than under such a contract between a depository institution and a nonrelated entity, except that the consideration from the related entity, other than an operating subsidiary, must be at least equal to the fair market value of the consideration from the depository institution.  The depository institution may establish the value of rights under a contract by obtaining written bid commitments based on a nonrelated entity's bid for a contract; provided:

  (1)  The parties to the contract may demonstrate fair market value by illustrating the costs and benefits of the contract in a number of ways, including but not limited to the following:  providing a full accounting of the calculations and compensation, including gross commissions to be received by each party to the contract, and any fees or other payments made to any bank officers, directors, employees and agents as a result of the contract, as well as specifically disclosing the services, such as standard light, heat, telephone, space plus office personnel and filing space, and providing an accounting of new business to be generated, with a comparison of depository institution and agency business, for the parties to the contract;

  (2)  Information provided pursuant to this subsection shall be considered proprietary and confidential pursuant to sections 361.070 and 361.080.

  3.  If the division determines enforcement action is necessary to protect the safety and soundness of an institution that it regulates, it may take enforcement action as otherwise permitted by law and may limit insurance commissions or other payments to an amount other than permitted in this section; provided the division has made a finding that enforcement action was required to protect the safety and soundness of such institution.  Nothing in this section shall limit the application of sections 382.190 and 382.195 to transactions between insurers and their affiliates.

  4.  For the purposes of this section, the following terms shall mean:

  (3)  "Division", the division of finance or the division of credit union supervision;

  (4)  "Fair market value", the value of an asset or service, which may include determinable costs and a profit reasonable for the market and shall not be limited to a specific rate of profit;

  (5)  "Operating subsidiary", any subsidiary of a depository institution that is not a financial subsidiary as otherwise defined by law;
