(1) An association shall have power to reorganize or merge or consolidate with a foreign association, as defined in s. 665.1001, subject to the approval of the office.
(2) If the resulting or surviving association is to be a foreign association, the office shall not approve the proposed transaction unless:

(b) The constituent Florida association has been in existence and continuously operating for more than 2 years.
(3) A proposed transaction in which the resulting or surviving association is to be a foreign association shall be subject to any conditions, restrictions, and requirements that would apply in the state where the foreign association has its principal place of business if the resulting or surviving association were to be a Florida association, which conditions, restrictions, and requirements would not apply to a reorganization, merger, or consolidation of associations all of which are located in that state.
(4) A foreign association which is the resulting or surviving association in a reorganization, merger, or consolidation with a Florida association shall not be considered a Florida association.
