Upon proper showing, the circuit court may also issue an injunction restraining any conduct or other act in order to protect the interests of depositors, members, creditors, or stockholders of a financial institution or the interests of the public in the safety and soundness of the financial institution system in this state and the proper conduct of fiduciary functions.
