20-9-41. Total gross assets defined--Determination of fair market value. Any successor corporation may establish the fair market value of total gross assets for the purpose of the limitations under §§ 20-9-39 and 20-9-40 through any method reasonable under the circumstances, including:
(1) By reference to the going concern value of the assets or to the purchase price attributable to, or paid for, the assets in arms-length transactions; or
(2) In the absence of other readily available information from which the fair market value can be determined, by reference to the value of the assets recorded on a balance sheet.
Total gross assets include intangible assets. To the extent total gross assets include any liability insurance that was issued to the transferor whose assets are being valued for purposes of this section, the applicability, terms, conditions, and limits of such insurance are not affected by this section, nor does this section otherwise affect the rights and obligations of an insurer, transferor, or successor under any insurance contract or any related agreements, including pre-enactment settlements resolving coverage-related disputes, and the rights of an insurer to seek payment for applicable deductibles, retrospective premiums, or self-insured retentions or to seek contribution from a successor for uninsured or self-insured periods or periods where insurance is uncollectible or otherwise unavailable. Without limiting the foregoing, to the extent total gross assets include any such liability insurance, a settlement of a dispute concerning any such liability insurance coverage entered into by a transferor successor with the insurers of the transferor before the date of enactment of §§ 20-9-36 to 20-9-43, inclusive, shall be determinative of the total coverage of such liability insurance to be included in the calculation of the transferor's total gross assets.
