The capital shall be divided with 60% of the amount as the aggregate par value of outstanding shares of capital stock, 30% as surplus and 10% as undivided profits.
(2) For trust companies organized on or after July 1, 2015, the minimum capital shall at all times be $500,000. The capital shall be divided with 60% of the amount as the aggregate par value of outstanding shares of capital stock, 30% as surplus and 10% as undivided profits.

(4) The state banking board may require that a bank or trust company have capital in excess of the amounts specified in this subsection if the state banking board determines that excess capital is necessary based on the character and qualifications of the proposed board of directors and the nature of the business of the bank or trust company.
(c) The minimum capital of a bank or trust company organized pursuant to K.S.A.9-801(j), and amendments thereto, shall be determined by the commissioner, provided that the successor bank has obtained deposit insurance from the federal deposit insurance corporation or any successor.

(1) The commissioner, in the commissioner's discretion, may approve a relocation with a smaller equity capital amount if the bank can show that the circumstances surrounding the relocation warrant consideration of a lesser amount and the safety of depositors would not be impacted by requiring a lesser amount.
(2) If the main office relocation is part of an interchange of the main office with a branch location that has been in operation for at least one year, this equity capital requirement shall not apply.
(f) Any national bank, federal savings association or federal savings bank which converts its charter to a state bank pursuant to K.S.A.9-808, and amendments thereto, shall have a minimum capital ratio of 5% of equity capital to total assets at the time of its conversion.

(g) The commissioner may require that a bank or trust company have capital in excess of the amounts specified in subsections (b) through (d) if the commissioner determines that excess capital is necessary based on the character and qualifications of the proposed board of directors and nature of the business of the bank or trust company.
(h) Any bank that fails to meet the minimum capital ratio of 5% of equity capital to total assets required by this section shall notify the commissioner within three business days. Upon notice, the commissioner may require the bank to submit a written plan for restoring capital approved by the commissioner.
